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)
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.
The Syrian Rebels have joined the large crowd under Obama’s bus.

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.
This way, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate comes across as the warmonger, and the KGB guy comes across as the peacemaker.
I like Drudge’s tagline of “checkmate”.
I believe it is peace for our time!
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.
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.
