    Totally eliminating Assad's chemical weapon's arsenal would in fact be a big victory for the US and civilization.

    If Assad is willing to give up his chemical weapons, chalk up another victory for Obama. I think, based on his more or less positive response Obama knows that. Russia just handed him a foreign policy WMD victory, which everyone will compare with the Bush WMD fiasco in Iraq.

    Yep. Sometimes bombing people isn't the best course of action. Something conservative still haven't learned.

    Apparently it's not just a conservative problem anymore.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Perhaps, but there are plenty of technical reasons to reject this offer. If Russia is the one doing the collecting, there's a good chance they're going to conveniently skip some. Furthermore, how are we suppose to do a full inventory in the middle of a civil war? This looks like a play for time between Syria and Russia.

    Well, we do need a rational mind behind this.

    He is. He saw that Obama couldn't so he took advantage.

    Now, Putin has increased influence in Iran, Syria, Iraq. And countries like Egypt and Jordan will probably start looking at Russia to take the lead. This probably won't have a good ending to it. But it's what the world gets when we elect a community agitator President. He makes things worse, for everybody.
