    Cons were convinced Putin would fight to defend Syria, that WWIII was just a breath away. Now look Putin found a hatch to bail out on this mess. Assad went from bluff and buster to 'welcoming' the chance to be stripped of an effective weapon.

    Unlike Neo-cons and bully BushII- Obama doesn't want fear... respect for what he could do is enough to strip Syria of it's chemical weapons. But please do continue to spin the Con delusions, they are amusing and quite a window into the disfunctional mindset of the modern conservative....

    Heya Fenton. Yeah notice what the Democrat Moran had stated. Guess what.....he said the same thing before they even had a vote in the Senate on any committee.

    Do you think the Medicated can come down off that high horse. Since they knew the Chem issue was a problem 2 years ago before this conflict even heated up? That's the one that Johnny Quest McCain and the Neo Cons with their lil Buddies the Neo Libs just can't get around.

    Same thing with them knowing the Rebel/Terrorists had used Chems before Assad did.

    Oh, so you think that Assad, or Russia actually want the dismantling of Syria's WMD program? How naive can you be?

Wow it not about looking like a hero it the best possible solution to a bad situation.
    Finding a diplomatic solution would be a "win-win" for both Russia and the U.S. It will still be difficult, as the details involved in implementing Russia's initiative will be complex.

    Although the President's tactical approach wasn't great e.g., going to Congress for authorization after he had all but decided on imminent military action, he deserves credit for giving serious consideration to the latest diplomatic opportunity. Decisions related to war and peace are grave policy matters. Diplomacy should be given every opportunity to work. That hasn't always been the case among nations.

    Hopefully, a diplomatic breakthrough will be realized and fulfilled, even as substantial obstacles will need to be overcome.

    So let's see.

    Kerry chews on his foot and has to have said foot extracted from mouth after the fact. Putin seizes on Kerry's leather lunch and places an order from Kerry's menu. President Obama realizes the frying pan is getting almost impossible to reside in, so he gladly changes his fireside chat with the nation so he can find out how Putin wants his steak cooked.

    And the spin is Obama is getting respect for what he could do to such a degree it's resulting in Syria being stipped of it's chemical weapons stock?

    Now that is Olympic level finals match delusion...

    : What exactly did BHO do to resolve this mess, other than agreeing with Putin's handling of it? Remember, BHO was getting ready to bomb Syria! Instead, why didn't he come up with the idea of allowing the international community to take possession of Syria's chemical weapons? I may have missed something, but...

    I really despise policy wonks... when the objection is to resolve a problem and get what you want.

    .....you may have missed something, but.....you didn't.

    I'm a bit baffled by Kerry and his offhand comment that became the genesis for the President's possible out.

    First, how does one in such an important position, speaking about such an important issue, throw out what was suggested was a sarcastic comment?

    I've been in hundreds of meetings where the future of the world isn't at stake, and I've been very aware of every word I've spoken.

    I don't know, but it seems to me it's reasonable to be a little concerned about the leadership being shown on this issue.

    I think Obama deserves some respect on this. He doesnt look weak in my eye. What would be weak is attacking a country that never did anything to us (Iraq??), lying to the American people about a country that is ready to attack the US (IRAQ). That is what is weak so if your going to nit pick how it is done go ahead. But a majority of Americans have seen "weak'
