    It will be up to the ones in 1 to come up with the types mentioned in 2 that they may detect there. Hope it is something meaningful and catchy. For instance nukes would not do!
    Biological ones though, they are not far from chems I think.
    We"ll see.

    Well I can't see the Arab League going in.....nor any just taking the Russians word. Which that leaves NATO. Now count the US out.

    That leaves the French who wanted to go and Punish Assad. Any other EU backers was in name only and didn't want to strike. So Italy, Germany, the Brits and no others that wanted boots on the ground will go.

    I don't like guessing without even knowing the intricacies of the US-Russian plan.

    Heya FA this might interest you.

    US-Russia agreement on Syria baked from scratch



    Here's what it took to produce Saturday's U.S.-Russian deal on Syria's chemical weapons: three days of intense, tough, round-the-clock negotiating spurred by an abrupt U.S. policy change based on a surprise Russian proposal, according to American officials involved in the talks.

    That gave U.S. and Russian officials only 24 hours to organize and prepare for the meetings at the same luxury hotel in Geneva where the much-maligned "reset" in relations between Washington and Moscow was inaugurated to great fanfare in 2009.

    The 29-member American delegation, led by Secretary of State John Kerry, arrived at the Intercontinental Hotel Geneve at midday Thursday after a turbulent, eight-hour overnight flight from Washington.

    The U.S. side had no guarantee that the Russians were interested in an enforceable deal or willing to conclude one quickly, the American officials told reporters. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the negotiations.

    U.S. and Russian teams had met for a year to discuss the eventual disposition of Syria's chemical weapons arsenal. But those talks had focused on how to deal with the weapons only after Syrian President Bashar Assad's government had been replaced by a transitional government in a political process, the officials said.....snip~
