I wonder if our Congress will listen to their counterparts in the Soviet Union Russian Federation since they certainly don't listen to us.

It will be hard for them (just like the American people)
to separate the greedy, treasonous, self-serving
US Congress from its brothels, its banks,
its secret payoffs, its private laws,
its NSA derived loveint, and its final future
payoff in citizens’ organs from ObamaCARE/DeathCARE.

Very interesting and unusual. I'm not sure what to make of it, are they looking for some US authority to reason with, thinking Obama’s insane and beyond reason?

We didn’t listen to the Russians when they tried to warn us about the Tsarnaevs.

Funny as the way the Prophet Obunghole and the congress and most of our government agencies have been behaving I would be hard pressed to not think the Russians are already here and infecting every area of government with their communist idiocy.

They would probably do a better job of “congressional outreach” than arrogant Fairy Prince Obama and his flying monkeys.

Don’t bother. He’s already said he doesn’t care which way Congress votes.

I don’t think we should be involved in Syria at all. The whole place is screwed up. We have two factions capable of using WMDs, and I think they’re both likely to have used them. We don’t know for sure.

There are times when you can garner good will by listening to others. Europe isn’t in our camp on this. The Middle-East is uneasy over it. Some want us in. Others do not.

Here is a chance to allow Russia to play the role of a major player. Let their MPs come here. Send five planes to go pick them up. Make a big summit out of it.

I consider this a chance to toss Russia a bone. It went from super status to no status. I think it misses being relevant. This is an opportunity to bring our two nations closer together. We should take advantage of it.

Let Russia look like it talked us out of it.

Russia and the United States should be close. We should become good allies. All it takes is a decision to do so, and we can start tossing each other favorable deals.

Russia has a very long agreement with Syria. We should honor that agreement. Truth be told, Russia could actually help be a mediator in this whole Syria mess. Handled correctly, we might even get Assad to accept leaving office.

This is the type of deal we should be working towards. The airstrike idea is foolhardy. It’s like hitting Ivan over the head with a mallet, so we can prove how big we are, and for what? This is idiotic.

It wouldn’t have to mean we just stand back and let Russia screw things up for the next 50 years. I don’t think they could do much worse than Carter did in Iran in the 70s though.

Let Putin look like a statesman. Give the guy some respect. Work out a plan with Russia and implement it together.

Do we need to trust Putin completely? No. I don’t think we should. It’s still better to have a strong working relationship, than to continue to build up animosity over time, and not devise a way to release it.

This is actually a made to order moment here.

It has been my take that we missed an incredible opportunity at Belson. We should have acted as if those kids were American kids, showing all the grief we would have if this had taken place on our soil. Those types of expressions of shared experience draw nations closer together.

Russia needs to see value in being partners with the West, particularly us. Now is a good time to start to make that happen.

Moving forward to this end in a wise well thought out manner, could be a very positive thing.

David Gergen: Syria raises questions about ‘how firm a grip Obama has on the wheel as commander in chief’

http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/01/david-gergen-syria-raises-about-how-firm-a-grip-obama-has-on-the-wheel-as-commander-in-chief-video/

“On Sunday’s “State of the Union” on CNN, former presidential adviser and CNN contributor David Gergen warned that President Barack Obama’s handling of the Syrian crisis could induce the Russians to aggressively involve themselves with the war-torn country.

Gergen also said U.S. involvement in Syria could cause the Russians to step up their support of Bashar al-Assad’s government.”

Putin knows Obama is a muslim and supports terrorists. Putin does not like terrorists. This is historical for Russia to send people here to try to warn congress. I believe they’re going to lay it out exactly what will happen if Obama pulls the trigger. This may also give the military brass some balls to stand up and say “Not this time, Kenyan.”

"Russian MPs want to fly to Washington to sway Syria vote"

Favored constituents (socialists in both parties) will probably scream for nominating and electing them.
