A last-ditch effort to avert a U.S. military strike by transferring control of Syrian chemical weapons ran into obstacles Tuesday, as Russia balked at a French plan to enforce an international agreement under a binding U.N. Security Council resolution with a military option if necessary.
Late Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the Obama administration was pursuing a dual-track effort to authorize military strikes even as it sought to avoid them by eliminating Syrias chemical arsenal, an approach he said could not work.
The disarmament plans will work out only if the U.S. and those who support it on this issue pledge to renounce the use of force, because it is difficult to make any country, Syria or any other country in the world, unilaterally disarm if there is military action against it under consideration, Putin told Russia Today.

If this doesn’t convince most voting Americans they elected an idiot to the White House - TWICE - NOTHING will.
I guess Putin won’t do the “French Mistake”.
(You can’t possibly expect me to go a whole day without at least one Blazing Saddles reference)
Putin really is humiliating Obama:
'Assad cant give up its Chems until Obama renounces using force because any state has a right to defend itself'
Putin really is showing Obama as the empty suit he is.
Putin is almost forced to step in due to Ososo and his crew's gross incompetence------
amazing that Putin has more credibility with us than our own excuse-for-a-president.
POSTED ABOUT A MONTH AGO I, for one, am firmly convinced the tipping point occurred when Egyptian General al-Sisi refused to take vacaying Obaba's call from MV. It affirmed Gen al-Sisi's determination not to let Obaba interferre with his plan to drive the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egyption politics. Shockingly, superpowers Russia and China both backed al-Sisi's drive against marauding Muslims.
Stupid Ohaha doesn't yet realize that the world is a changed place. Gen al-Sisi's unrelenting defense of Christians has turned the world upside down. Gen al-Sisi is igniting worldwide disapproval of the Mus/Bhood---world leaders are vocally defending Christians. Russian Pres Putin weighed in w/ al-Sisi---decrying Christian slaughter by Muzzies. The Saudis are jetstreaming billions to al-Sisi so he can continue the fight.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR SYRIA? As the unabated slaughter of Syrian Christians continues--- conducted by the fanatical Muslims----the truth is Muzzie rebels want Assad out b/c he accepts Christians. Of course, that twit Obama is on the wrong side again ....arming Muzzie rebels so they can kill more Christians.
BTW, Gen al-Sisi's got Christian-hating Obummer right where he wants him. Read on.....
MILITARY.COM reported that US Pentagon officials declined to give specifics on conversations between DOD's Chuck Hagel and Egyptian Gen al-Sisi... Although the US officials would not discuss the specifics of the military- to-military talks, the U.S. would need Gen al-Sisi's approval to move through Egyptian air space if Washington decided to send Marines to aid in the evacuation of U.S. personnel.
READY TO GO About 550 Marines and their tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft are at bases in Spain and Italy on standby if they are needed. A Navy Amphibious Ready Group with 4,000 Marines and sailors aboard, led by the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, was also in the region following completion of the Eager Lion training exercises in Jordan. © Copyright 2013 Military.com.
