China we can completely agree on.
You are the one however that said "Russia is leading the way to strip Syria of chemical weapons" so I went with what you said. But of course we both know that it will be conducted by the UN. Can't see why your picking at that.
And yes, you are the ONLY one that thinks that Putin backed down or capitulated. But Putin has been the rational voice thru the whole issue. Seeking all opportunities to avoid a US attack that even China agreed would inflame the entire region. But if the US was set on such folly, Russia had/has their plans.
And again why do you keep mentioning the US's military superiority over Russia, no one has said otherwise.
