It seems Assad is reaching for just a bit too much too quickly. If he’s not careful he might end up blowing the deal by asking for too much at one time.
All zero will do is dither more and do even less now that putin has upstaged him. He gave up the initiative and has made the US a second rate player in the world.
I doubt Assad really believes that this will happen, however, it puts the US in the position of looking like massive hypocrites if they pursue the use of force over chemical weapons. The Obamateur has been outmaneuvered yet again.
No doubt. He's acting like O. J. Simpson after his murder acquittal.
Hey Bashir, you're still a murdering thug. Sometimes it's best to just shut up when you're winning.
