The Russians pounced on this and said they would work with Assad to see if this can be done and Assad is quoted as saying he'd consider it. No chance to move militarily now until that issue is settled.

    Wouldn't it be so anti-climatic if Assad was like "Yeah, sure here ya go" and then everyone just left it at that?

    Yes, but not to derail the thread, it doesn't appear Kerry and the President are communicating at all and are looking at different playbooks...

    Good afternoon, CJ.

    I wonder how many people will be disappointed? Some I guess, but not too many, I'll wager, because most of the people I have talked with are just plain "war weary" at this point, and would like to insist that domestic problems be tackled and handled instead! Jobs and infrastructure seem to be the main topics on everyone's mind!

    If Assad says yes, it will be years before inspectors actually get organized, get in, etc. and who's to say all the chemical weapons will be rounded up. But if he does say yes, how can Obama and the US then attack? Assad can take the time to try and destroy all opposition.

    There's always the pesky little continuing resolution that needs to be dealt with before month's end. Good afternoon pg...

    Good point. To me, it illustrates how this just a political game to Obama and Assad. Nothing more.

    Good afternoon Lady P - can't disagree with that - it's only common sense that when your country has so many internal problems the majority of people would like you to focus seriously on those issues and not try to change the channel.
