Posted on 09/10/2013 5:24:07 AM PDT by Perdogg
Syria on Tuesday said the government would take the deal proposed by Russia to turn over its chemical weapons cache to international control, the nations foreign minister said.
[Monday] we held a round of very fruitful negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Serge[y] Lavrov and he put forward an initiative regarding chemical weapons. Already in the evening we accepted Russias initiative, said Walid Muallem, the foreign minister, in a statement reported by Russian news and picked up by USA Today

Actually I believe this is the answer to prayers sent to God from millions of people around the world.It was not a coincidence that those words came out of Kerry’s mouth. God said he would put words in the mouth of people. (not that I think Kerry intended it) just God acting in his own mysterious way.
Does this mean we don’t have to listen to you-know-who tonight?
It looks like Syria is going to hide behind Russia’s skirt. What will President Obama do?
obama threatened or not threatened depending on the day, Putin says “do what I say” and Sryia obeys.
Somehow, I am receiving a perverse pleasure from that.
(Wonder when obama will take credit for this)
We don’t have to listen. LOL!
On come on now, Wa Times: this was John F’in Kerry’s inspired idea. You know, the idea that was a slip of the tongue, that his own office tried to walk back, and that his master is now jumping on like a loose football in the end zone. His inspiration allowed Russia and Putin to separate 0bama from every vestige of what little international support he had, and made us look like fools, while preserving Russia’s position in Syria, and he didn’t have to give up anything.
“It looks like Syria is going to hide behind Russias skirt. What will President Obama do?”
The same. Only Obama will claim that he designed the skirt.
The Syrian Rebels have joined the large crowd under Obama’s bus.
"The USA has travelled from Shock and Awe to Aw-Shucks. That Kerry bloke should go and mind the family store- he might just keep it in business." - nickr
Kerry goes on to say....of course that will never happen....
Putin and Assad played the dummy for the dummy he is. I don’t recall the comedian who used to have the dummy which responded “so right, yes so right” but that is what Putin and Assad did to the dope. Neither have any actual plan to destroy or quaranteen those weapons as that would take quite a bit of time. One trap Putin may be laying for Obama, which he will promptly fall into, he may secure the storage areas with Russian troops and await an attack from the Rebels at which point he announces to save the world he used his military on Assad’s side against El Dope’s supported bunch of canibals making him look like a joke again.
Moral never play checkers with a chess master.
I don’t think so. He will continue to arm the rebels. Putin is laying one more trap for him. He will quaranteen the weapons with Ruskies and if the rebels try to get at them, he will use the Russian military to “save the world”.
El Dope will have no answer that that one especially when he goes on record supporting the rebels tonight in his speech.
(Wonder when obama will take credit for this)
BO said during the interview with Chris Wallace that he and Putin had discussed this during the G20. Of course, he’s going to claim credit!! The rest of the world will just see what a Dufus he is. As if Military action wasn’t the plan even after the UK Parliament vote.
This way, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate comes across as the warmonger, and the KGB guy comes across as the peacemaker.
What? You don't want to swoon and marvel at his genius while watching him take full credit for his brilliant diplomacy? (I'm making myself ill)
(I'd bet he gives absolutely no credit to his fellow comrade, Vlad Putin, for pulling his chestnuts out of the fire.)
Yeah I’m happy to see this.
We simply don’t need another destabilized middle eastern nation.
Great discussion this AM about this subject:
Hoping someone in the media will explore this idea.
Looks like a good night for reruns of Gillian’s Island!
I like Drudge’s tagline of “checkmate”.
***What will President Obama do?****
Like the 1930s cartoon character who hides when trouble shows up, he returns after the danger is past, gets in front of the crowd, throws out his chest and says....”WELL! I guess WE showed him!”
I believe it is peace for our time!
Russia and the U.S. could unite for one week, go into Syria, remove the chemicals, and let them continue fighting.— Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) September 7, 2013
Actually it could take years to remove all of the CW that Syria has. Most likely the civil war would have to pause while UN troops are all over the country. The rebels won’t like that but Assad would be happy because that gives him “time”
No...it means that now he is going to drone on for an hour and a half about how “he” forced Syria to give up their chemical weappons and how macho and manly he is as our leader. Except I will not hear a word of the blow hard.
Best case would be he cancels and I watch NCIS LA.
Obama looks like the weak, indecisive person he is on the international stage.
He threatened and cajouled, and Syria made no move to do his bidding.
He tried to bring in the Brits, but their parliment slapped him upside the head.
He sought UN approval and was rejected.
He soought NATO assistancer and they tabled it.
He attempted to bring together a coalition...but only France was willing to go along. The others said that yes, those Syrian chemcial weapons are a bad thing, but, uh...no, they’re not THAT bad and would not join him.
He then tried to pawn off his increasingly embarassing antics at foregn policy on the US Congress and it became apparent that they, and the American people were going to give him a backhand to the face.
Putin siezed the opportunity, made a single offer, and Syria accepted it. China backed it that same day. Now France is going to propose to the UN that this very deal be put to the UN Security council and they will vote unanimously in favor.
So...did Obama do this?
Pffft! Of course not.
Obama looks like the week, vascillating, scheming, stab-you-in-the-back individual he is.
Putin came out looking like a leader on the world stage here.
Do not get me wrong...Putin does not have US interests, or the free market, or principle based, morally founded liberty as his principle concern. But he is shrewd, and does know how to lead, and he does know how to handle the international stage, particularly when occupying it with someone like Obama.
Obama’s Disasterous list of Errors as president
Maybe Zero can ask Putin how to deal with joblessness, the national debt.
Assad will put a couple of crates of shells in a warehouse surrounded by blue helmets.
The rest of his weapons will remain available to troops, and his production facilities will double their output.
Checkmate, Horseface / 0bummer.
It’s amazing to compare Obama and Bush here.
Obama could not get UN approval for an attack...Bush did.
Obama could not get a colaition together for his attack...Bush got over 40 nations to participate.
Obama was going to fail to get a resolution to use force from Congress...Bush got that resolution, twice.
Obama could not even act on his own “red line,” threat and never even got to the point of establishing a deadline...Bush set a deadline and then acted.
Obama has tried to balme everyone and shift responsibility, even claining the he never said there was a “red line,” when the whole world heard him announce it...Bush took full responsibility for his actions.
We could go on and on all day. There were plenty of things I did not like about Bush. Prescription drugs, the whole “Compassionate Conservatsim from Government,” thing, his singing the Campaign Reform legislation that limited every American’s 1st amendment rights, etc. But BUsh was nonetheless a strong leader and the international community respected him and knew not to mess with him...and he took the fight to pour enemies.
Obama is far worse on ALL of the domestic issues, and is worse than an embarassement on the international stage. he is a quisling and a sympathizer with our enemies.
Obama is an Abject Marxist Ideolog
You see, what happened here was that Obama gave such a serious look to Putin at the G20 meeting and was such a hard-ass at said meetings, that Putin et.al. just backed down because they are very intimidated by him............... NOT!
Obama continues to look like the bumbling idiot he is. Rather than having this idea the result of a carefully planned ultimatum presented to Assad prior to the use of force, it results from Putin responding to an off-the-cuff remark made by Kerry, who was responding to a journalis’s question.
These people are the modern day version of the keystone cops. So now it appears that had Kerry not “accidentally” responded to a journalist’s question and as a result had Putin, of all people, not decided to take the initiative to make a proposal based on Kerry’s off-hand comment, Obama would have been more than happy to continue to march into an attack that surely would have killed many.
Next we’ll hear that Obama had planned to issue such plan/propose to Assad himself but just hadn’t gotten around to it quite yet.
Surreal and simply beyond comprehension.
This Administration couldn't possibly have screwed up as badly as it did yesterday.
As Baraq Obama loves to say, “PERCEPTION IS TRUTH”. It’s certainly no win for Bambi.
WELL he DID have Hillary Clinton present Russia with a RESET button to reset the "bad" relations that existed because of Boosh's policies.
Bush's fault, Obama's efforts. < /DUmmytalk >
The press is out saying we maybe entering a diplomatic combat , oh boy be stock in crispy cream and Starbucks . And #2 pencils .
And no this wasn’t 0ero waffling this in pure genius , 0 pulled off the head fake . Tricked the whole world. Into thinking he was off the hook ang going to do a “ unbelievabley small small “ bombing run , but even the unbelievable small hit , is so scary that it scared them . Russia , Assad
All the labels scratched off will be the saddam WMD .
If the nobel peace prize people want to stay consistent they will give the next one to Kim Jong-un.
Russia doesn't want that pipeline, so they want Assad to stay put. Russia doesn't want a pipeline that enables the Arabs to cut into their share of oil sales to Europe.
Russia is now the final arbiter of the world. Well played Bam Bam. You got what you wanted.
Obama wants delays in the vote, and the UN Security council meeting was canceled.
Obama’s plan for Air Support for the Radical Muzzies is blown up by his own recklessness, and Putin has checkmated him.
I’d honestly say that Obama could be at his most dangerous to America, right now.
“I like Drudges tagline of checkmate.”
When this first came out, my comment was “CHECK... and mate.”
Putin is playing Chess, while Obama is watching someone on TV saying Obama is playing 11-dimensional chess.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not for attacking Syria. It will do nothing and if it did it would only help terrorists.
Obama is a moron. That is the lesson from all of this, and having a moron for POTUS weakens our entire country. If we get hit again like 9/11, it is all on Obama. It drive me crazy when in Obama’s speech he basically blamed Bush for not having support for Syria— by saying Iraq, Bush's bad war, led the country to not believe in Obama’s fantastic Syria plan. For the love of God, own your incompetence for once Husssein!
