It is largely the US's fault that it has lasted as long as it has and that there are as many dead as there is.
    I agree that anyone really know who lit off the chems.
    I disagree that we are somehow at fault.

    Then you would loose your bet. Putin IS genuinely concerned and clearly wishes to defuse the tinder box we have. Along with China they have repeatedly warned that a US attack on Syria will explode into the entire region and are desperate to avoid that. And what is this **** about respect you keep talking. 10-12 days ago their was a joint US/Israeli missile test in the eastern Med. because both countries failed to follow protocol and inform other nations of the drill, Russia went to full alert before the US Navy shot the missiles down. It had appeared that missiles were headed for Syria. Do you see any lack of respect there? Perfectly fine for the US to punk Putin in some people's minds.

    Putin doesn't see Obama as a president. He sees him as the valet.
    Don't know where you've been but "respect" for the US has been in decline for sometime now, and for good and obvious reasons to many of us.

    and maybe why the war has lasted so long is because Russia is supplying weapons and ammo to the Assad regime.

    maybe Russia should spend more of its money on helping the Syrian refugees who have been displaced by the civil war, rather then funneling weapons into the country to prolong the conflict.
    Seriously, your unaware of the covert work of the US in Syria from the beginning? Really!

    maybe if it is not the united states concern to interfere in Syria problems, neither should Russia be supplying weapons to anyone in syria.

    at least the united states has contributed more aid to the Syrian refugees then Russia has.

    Syria IS Russia's ally, how can you compare Russian involvement with US involvement?

    Gawd, Obama and Kerry really got clobbered in the political arena with this one. Putin put lotsa egg all over both their silly faces.

    The idjits walked right into the trap with their BS claims about 'certain knowledge' of just who let the gas out.

    Can't help but laugh at the hapless fools, and congratulations to Putin for a major victory in diplomacy.
