THAT was in the can before Putin opened his mouth.
It’s really a masterful move, what with POSer all over the tube today.
Ive been thinking about this all night...It doesnt make sense. Putin is very very quick to offer the INternational control of weapons IMMEDIATELY after Kerrys faux Paux?
The administration at first says its rhetorical, but then pundits spin this to sound like Obama got the Russians to do this.
ARE WE STUPID OR ARE WE STUPID? PUTIN MUST BE LAUGING HIS BUTT OFF ON OUR THINKING HE’S STUPID. HE KNOWS OBAMAS MOVES BEFORE OBAMA DOES. HE KNOWS THIS IS NOT ABOUT CHEMICAL WEAPONS JUST THE PRETENSE.
Lets think this through. WHy would Putin make this offer, unless his intelligence was clear that Obama is using the chemical weapons as a pretext to bomb Syria and support the MB.
Now the ball is back in Obamas court and there is no longer an issue. Game should be over, right?
WRONG. The Saudis, Obama etc want regime change in Syria. Its not about dying babies and chemical weapons. Its about regime change.
Boy, I would think Obama is fuming about this. He must back down, and if he does the Russians are even more into Syria as they are the ones who will offer to over see the stockpiles.
The Russians can take their time on this all they want.
BOTTOM LINE NOW IS THAT THE CONGRESS CANNOT BE DUPED INTO VOTING FOR BOMBING UNDER ANY CONTINGENCY. IN OTHER WORDS THIS SHOULD NOT CHANGE THE VOTE. BOEHNER SHOULD NOT CALL A VOTE ON THIS.
