The Syrian government agrees to Russias proposal to hand its chemical arsenal over to international control in a bid to avert a possible strike by the US-led coalition, Interfax reported citing the Syrian Foreign Minister.
Yesterday [Monday] we held a round of very fruitful negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and he put forward an initiative regarding chemical weapons. Already in the evening we accepted Russias initiative, Walid Muallem said.
He stressed that the agreement is designed to pull the rug from under the feet of American aggression.

France to propose U.N. resolution on Syria chemical weapons
(Reuters) - France is to put forward a U.N. Security Council draft resolution for Syria to give up its chemical weapons, quickly turning a Russian idea into a full-blown diplomatic proposal that could avert Western military strikes.
The French draft would threaten “extremely serious” consequences if Syria violates the conditions for giving up its chemical weapons, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday.
What happens when the Syrian WMD are determined
to not match the rebels WMD (which may have come from Obama)?
Gonna be nauseating or maybe amusing, to watch MSM give, and BO himself take, all the credit.
He’ll be shoving Hillary out of the way to get pinned by Jeb
Obama will declare “Mission accomplished! See what the threat of using my military has done?”
What "coalition"? Obama/Kerry/Clinton?
Obama will take full credit for this, he will say his hardline red line approach, scared the Russians into adapting the solution, he sent Kerry out to promote.
I just looked at Sky news. This could end up another mess for Obama. The FSA, ehem, is ticked off and vowing to help “beef up” the jihadi’s in a push to Damascus. They were counting on this military strike.
Now we can see the possible upcoming danger. And 9/11 is tomorrow.
I bet his speech writers were up all night trying to figure out a way to make the community organizer look good. I am ready for the lies to come fast and furious. Obama is a snake and a professional liar. He will find a way to take credit for this.
Shall we play a game?
Will Assad reveal where HE manufactured them or come clean IF Saddam shipped them to him with Russian aid?
Destroying the possible evidence of Saddam’s WMD stockpile is not the best turn of events. It’s only “good” if you are a Leftist who wants to insist that Bush’s wars were bad or Russians involved in the deal.
Just like we did in 1991 with Saddam? Gee, that worked out well.
Russia will soon present a precise plan for a resolution to the chemical weapon problem.
We are now working on this working out efficient precise plan, for that we are in talks with Syrian side. We expect to present the plan, including to the US, in the nearest future. We are ready to elaborate it with the UN secretary- general, UNSC members and with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Sergey Lavrov said.
However, Lavrov stressed, this work does not exclude the necessity of investigation of all cases in which chemical weapons were used.
UN experts should return to Syria and complete their mandate in full. The truth must be found, those responsible should be held accountable,” he continued.
The Obama Cult in the Miami media is already spinning this as Obama’s victory. Hilarious!
Let me guess...”international control” means primarily Russia and China.
Actually it’s a win/win all around and retains status quo. Sure Syria gives up some weapons but gets to hide as many as they want. Obama saves face. Russia likes it. No useless bombing. I’m fine with it. However it fixes nothing. And it is not our problem to fix.
So now the MSM has Wagged the Dog for ten days do you think we can ever get back to NSA,IRS or Obama care?
I bet not.
EVERY BUSH GETS TO
START HIS OWN WAR
