So now Putin is saying that for Syria to give up its chemical weapons, the U. S. has to renounce the use of force first. Okay, this makes a little more sense, this sounds more like the Vlad I know.
Aside from that ridiculous, DOA demand, the thing is already falling apart at the U. N. The Russians have told the French that a Security Council resolution must be toothless — it can’t contain any threat of military action if Syria doesn’t follow through on transferring its chemical weapons to international authorities.
We don’t have a potential solution here, people, just an ever-expanding mess.
What’s Russian for rope-a-dope?
