Hey, Great Pretender! Putin just called your bluff. Now what?

    Just hours after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made an off-hand comment about how Syria could avert a military strike by turning over its chemical weapons program, Russia's foreign minister is proposing that the Assad regime do just that.

    Sergey Lavrov said Monday that Russia will push Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control.

    "If the establishment of international control over chemical weapons in that country would allow avoiding strikes, we will immediately start working with Damascus," Lavrov said.
    This just proves what I've been saying all along: The Great Pretender had no intention of delivering on his threat to not allow Syria to cross his imaginary "red line" without punitive action being the result. Kerry's throw-away line got precisely the reaction the occupier of the White House hoped for. Look for this action to be encouraged. And when Assad refuses, then what, Mr. Pretender?

    He makes me physically ill.

    Update two hours later:
    And now, apparently, Putin has allies in the Congress and (where else?) the U.N.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...loats-plan-to-avert-military-strike-on-syria/

    President Obama's "Plan A" for a military strike on Syria could be in danger just one day before he makes his case to the American people as Russia, the U.N. and some in Congress push for a newly emerging "Plan B."

    Gaining traction is a push to compel the Assad regime to turn over its chemical weapons.

    The idea caught fire unexpectedly on Monday after Secretary of State John Kerry made an off-hand comment that Syria could resolve the stand-off by relinquishing its chemical weapons within a week. Kerry claimed that Assad "isn't about to do it" -- and an aide suggested the secretary was not being serious.
    [Emphasis added]​

    It would be laughable if it wasn't this administration's best example of "leadership" at work.

    Me thinks......

    .....the great pretender will sleep a lot easier tonight as the heaviness was lifted and partially removed when his double-talking bro-crush bud, Putin, initiated the plan the two concocted behind closed doors while at the G20! :wavey:

    The media has no idea what is going on. One said this was Russia responding to Kerry's gaff, one said the deal came up at the G20 and another said the idea was floated back in May.

    May the media start "INVESTIGATING" before they report. :tear:

    I have also heard/read that he wears a Christian cross.

    on the Larry King Show he said that his mother gave it to him and he had it blessed in Israel. Says that he wears it "always".

    A Christian and a peacemaker.

    Who'd have guessed.

    Must be a great disappointment to all the neocons who were looking forward to rushing into another war based on lies.
