Skip to comments.Syria: Putin rubbishes chemical attack claims. Russian president goes on offensive against Obama
Posted on 08/31/2013 8:04:27 PM PDT by Innovative
Vladimir Putin has rejected US intelligence claims that Bashar al-Assad's regime used chemical weapons in Syria, saying it would be "utter nonsense" for government troops to use such tactics in a war it was already winning.
"That is why I am convinced that [the chemical attack] is nothing more than a provocation by those who want to drag other countries into the Syrian conflict, and who want to win the support of powerful members of the international arena, especially the United States," Putin told journalists in Vladivostok.

There have been reports that the "rebels" are the ones who used the chemical weapons, but are blaming the government.
Syrian Rebels admit to being behind Chemical Weapons Attack
Given the choice between believing Putin or believing Obama, I’ll pick Putin every time.
Putin will lie, but unlike obama, he’ll tell the truth when the truth serves him better than a lie.
Putin smells blood in the water.
“Given the choice between believing Putin or believing Obama, Ill pick Putin every time.”
Me too...Just imagine what Putin thinks of our limp wristed
sorry little excuse of a POTUS.
What happened to the big Reset button Hillary took to Russia?
Russia did not move Warships to Syria for a “Boat Show”.
“What happened to the big Reset button Hillary took to Russia?”
She uses it as a bed toy.
Sad, isn’t it.
Is it big enough?
What an interesting way of saying Obama is being played for a fool!
I would've just said Obama is a fool, but I don't have to be diplomatic.
I think Putin told Obama he would be forced to wipe out the US warship launching missiles on Syria, and that Syria and Lebanon would rain down Russian client states missiles on Israel for days and days.
So the US had birds in the air last night on their way to targets but they never arived? Military refuse to follow orders, reversed command? Coup attempt reason for his sudden change of heart?
Tell the whole world what a lying POC O'Bomber is.
The Gang that can’t shoot straight even got that cheesy gift wrong.
The word on the big red button was supposed to say ‘reset’ in rooski, but in fact it said: ‘overcharged.’
No question about it. I will pick Putin as well! Everything about 0dumb0shit is a lie...whether verbal or non-verbal. He is of his father, the Devil, who is the father of all lies. Can't wait for 0dumb0, phatass mabelle michelle, & 99% of the democRAT socialist part to roast for eternity in Hell & the Lake of Fire!
Frankly, I think Putin was the one who put the brakes on Obama by sending advanced weaponry into the region, and very likely reminding boy zer0 that Russia views an attack on Syria as an attack on Russia itself.
“Putin needs to send the FSB after Barry’s real birth certificate “
What makes you think Putin doesn’t already have it and is blackmailing him with it?
Just think back, how Obama canceled the plan to put a missile defense radar in Poland and sent a message to Putin that he will have more flexibility after the election — this is just what we know and how many other things there are we have no idea about...
No need to imagine. He called him a monkey with a grenade.
Bump to this post.
We still don’t miss his sorry ass.He paved the way for Obama and the destruction of our country. He was no conservative. Screw him
We still dont miss his sorry ass.He paved the way for Obama and the destruction of our country. He was no conservative. Screw him
You beat me to it!
Compassionate Conservative. Pfft!
Bush helped destroy the Republican Party. GWB was an abject idiot!
Makes more sense than Ubammys take on the situation. But then again, he has a dog in the hunt. Must support al quaida at every opportunity
What is that supposed to mean? In what language?
Putin does NOT support Al Qaeda — he has trouble with them in Chechnia — where our two pressure-cooker bombers came from. Remember, Putin warned the US multiple times about them.
Putin wants to put himself in a position to control Russia’s muslim enemies, and sometimes that involves making alliances with other muslims....but Putin will not hesitate to act in Russia’s best interests, if anything, Islam is a much bigger threat to Russia than to the US as of now.
I would say that it is in both of our Nations’ interests to ally in that fight, but for some reason our State Department doesn’t see it that way...They are still fighting by the old Cold War rules.
You said about George Bush:
“We still dont miss his sorry ass. He paved the way for Obama and the destruction of our country. He was no conservative. Screw him”
I usually try to ignore posts like yours, but your tagline is so appropriate to your post, I can’t resist pointing it out:
“Life’s tough. It’s tougher when you’re stupid.”
You wrote your own assessment of your reply. LOL!
“Putin will not hesitate to act in Russias best interests,”
Now, if only we had a president who would feel the same way about the US.
“Putin does NOT support Al Qaeda he has trouble with them in Chechnia where our two pressure-cooker bombers came from. Remember, Putin warned the US multiple times about them.”
I was referring to our own glorious leader
Up yours mouth breather.
Not difficult to go on the offensive agaist Obama - all you have to do is lift your pinky finger off the table, up by an inch and that’s it, Obama’s finished.
You might even get an apology out of him or a bow.
Obama is (and unfortuantely, the US) toast now.
Russia, Iran, China and Jihad ascendent. Israel’s back to the wall now vis Iran. Israel knows Obama does not have their back...game over...tilt!
Putin so harsh with Obambi?
I think he warned Obama that he would prevent Obama from going on vacation or attending golf games and THAT did Obama in. White flag.
BTW, if Israel is bombarded she will relentlessly attack those that attack her. Now that Obama is weak and ineffectual, Israel will feel free to go all the way, something not done since 1967. Will Israel listen to Obama now after 12 betrayals and his backing down on Syria? I think not.
Obama has reduced us to sniveling has beens. I hope there is enough country left for the next conservative leader.
It wasn’t President Bush, who ushered Obama into office. It was the Democrat constituents, of course, and those most influential Republican constituents who selected candidates for the elections, leaving no conservative choices. Besides, socialist Democrats tried to run Hillary with the blessings of many prominent socialist Republicans. We all knew how the plan of the harpies would turn out.
The Saudi’s stand to gain. A pipeline through Syria.
I can’t agree with your sentiments on this. It’s reminiscent of the pre-World War II French expression, “Better Hitler than Blum.” As much as we disagree with Obama, I don’t believe Putin is doing anything in Syria but supporting a mass murdering tyrant. Obama has screwed up everything by not backing the FSA when they had the momentum. Because of this, al Qaeda and Assad seem to be the choice. But Putin is giving aid to genocide in Syria.
Neither side is better than the other, we should have no dog in this fight.
“Russia did not move Warships to Syria for a Boat Show.”
Dollars to donuts they’ve repositioned their sub fleet as well. Remember that Russian sub that went undetected in the gulf recently. Most Americans aren’t paying any attention to this and have not a clue about any of this. Dumb as sheep to the slaughter.
Imagine if after Zer0 initiated a cruise missile strike on Syria, without Congressional approval, it was found that Putin was correct. Imagine also, it was discovered the true story about Benghazi. Imagine the DemonRATs being taken down like rats on a sinking ship along with their skipper, Zer0.
I think Zer0’s Muslim friends are not Russia’s friends. Putin knows that Zer0 is helping the bad guys who give Russia trouble. Zer0 is taking our eyes off the ball when it comes to Iran’s development of nuclear weapons. Fighting Iran in this indirect way will only cause Iran to step up the time table to nukes.
