    Well sure. Doesn't it make sense that Syria would trust their ally over the US? And thankfully we have Putin actually working to defuse US military aggression, again.

    Russia supports Assad to the bitter end. They have massive interests in protecting Syria and Iran.

    Putin basically made Obama his bitch in all this. Now he's spiking the football in the NY Times.

    Putin told Obama to step the **** off, and he did. That's all that happened here.

    Meanwhile, Putin is stockpiling Iran with new weapons.
    Watching a decade or better of US aggression in the region, why wouldn't Russia and China bow up as they are. Clearly they are sick of it and intend to REALLY do something about it now.

    Actually, Russian disapproval of US aggression in the region predates Obama.

    And the US has massive interests in protecting Israel which is no friend to the ME, SO WHAT is the difference?

    In other words, attack Syria on unproven charges. Very nice.

    The difference is, Putin has no intentions to disarm anything. He basically just told Obama to meet him in the schoolyard after school, and Obama cowered like the coward he is.

    That Op-ed has to just be burning Obama up inside. It's such a lack of respect from Putin, who sees Obama as nothing but a waterboy.

    How so?
    Assad is going to do what Putin wants him to. In exchange for weapons and maybe even boots on the ground.
    But it still is making sense from the Russian side.
    I think his OP ED is about as close to a real warning of hostilities as you can get.
    And where is the signed agreement that Assad will do any of it?
