I'll help Syria if the U.S. attacks, says Putin in chilling threat to Obama
Daily Mail [UK] ^ | 9-6-13 | James Chapman

Russia last night issued a chilling threat to assist Syria if the US leads military strikes against its hated regime.

As a summit of world leaders broke up in acrimony, Vladimir Putin declared openly that he is already supplying arms to Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad and vowed to step up support if a planned missile attack goes ahead.

There were gasps as the Russian President made his remarks after being asked how he would react if Barack Obama proceeds with an attack in response to Syria’s used of chemical weapons.

‘Will we help Syria? We will. And we are already helping, we send arms, we cooperate in the economics sphere,’ Mr Putin declared.

Amid signs any US-led action could be delayed for as long as a fortnight, with President Barack Obama battling to win the approval of Congress, Russia last night sent a fourth warship with ‘unspecified cargo’ to the eastern Mediterranean.

What has happened here is that Putin is entirely aware that Obama is dedicated to the strike on Syria......as long as no bodies come home. Once that happens he knows what scant support Obama has will vaporize and he will run with his tail so far between his legs it will get stuck in a nostril. The Russians have never minded trading corpses to get what they need politically.

I wonder why Putin doesn’t just send in some troops. He could station them where Syrias Air Force is. That would easily take a cruise missle attack off the table.

24. The US Navy, having been gutted by Obama, is in no shape to oppose an aged Russian fleet that is nonetheless willing to fight.

In the photo accompanying this article, as Putin walks by the other world leaders have their heads up - some smiling.

Obama (I think it is Obama) has his head down, not looking at Putin at all - more like looking at his shoes or the ground.

"Obama can’t even clean up Chicago, what the heck is he going to do against Russia."

Good point.

"What’s with Obama always looking at his feet when ever he’s near Putin. Is he afraid to look Putin in the eye? Is he deferring to a better leader?"

Body language tells on Obama. I bet Putin has copies of these in his file on Obama. Putin knows he is the big dog; Obama is finally learning that, too.

Obama: "Ouch! Where is Valerie Jarrett? I want to be the big dog!" (sobbing)

Nice analysis.

Putin - winner

Obama - loser, hands down

Can't wait until Tuesday night.

Will he become more bellicose or will he find a way to wiggle out of this without losing what's left of his dignity?
