    Obama's G20 Task Complicated by Russian WMD Report

    President Obama, arriving Thursday in Russia, anticipated a lively two-day G20 summit, during which he’ll reprise his lobbying for international airstrikes against Syria with President Vladimir Putin, an ally of the Assad regime, as well as other world leaders.

    Russia said it compiled a report asserting that Syrian rebels were behind a chemical weapons attack in March near Aleppo, according to the McClatchy news service. The 100-page report, which Russia said it delivered to the United Nations in July, runs counter to U.S. claims that the regime of Bashar al-Assad has been behind chemical attacks in Syria, including a mass killing near Damascus in August.



    A White House spokesman, traveling with reporters from Sweden to St. Petersburg, described Obama’s pending discussions with Putin as “interactions.”

    Heya WCH. Way to jump on this. So Ban Ki Moon has had the Russian report since July.....his pending discussions. Do you think Obama will be able to get over on Putin this time round? Looks like the tables are turned.

    No way Obama can sway Putin. That ship has sailed.

    IMO, Putin is pushing back against the powers the be. That, Imo, is a good thing.

    Obama, otoh, is a puppet for said powers

    Well it does seem like Putin and Russians have put out enough Messages for Obama.....his last was to send 3 more Ships into Club Med. Although these are going to the Shores of Syria.

    He knew Obama was looking to deal with anything but Syria at this G20.....plus now Due to Syria's Nuclear Reactor. Russia will take it to the AEIA next week.

    That ship never existed. Syria and Russia have a strong alliance, and there was never any way that Putin was going to let this kiddy cowboy bull**** fly.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    From reports I saw this morning, that fact has been established. Putin will not budge on Syria.

    Serious doubts still exist about who used the Sarin gas.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    And that's a good thing. Hopefully Putin backs his skinny ass all the way into the corner and hog ties him and saves the world from a regional or worse, world war.

    It's about time Obama learns he can't do whatever he wants.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
