Looks like Russia and Syria

Looks like Russia and Syria are throwing Obama a way out.

I wonder if this will stop the House Vote on the war. If the resolution is not taken and voted upon, then it doesn't face a "No" vote. "No" vote means explicitly, no action is taken. Now they can take the resolution off the vote and act unilaterally at a future date.

It sounds like a win for Syria's government, too,

by protecting it from false flagging, with or without the part where it holds off the U.S. bombs. Why couldn't they just go straight to this? Oh, yeah, that bit where the U.S. gov't puts bombs on the table and everyone's brain freezes in horror or war-frenzy so other solutions are hard to see.

As an analogy, if you don't know if the 3 year old drew on the walls or the older sister drew on them to get him in trouble, you can smack the kid or you can put the crayons out of reach. Only one of these solutions is helpful, but if you're the type who likes to smack, you're not going to pick it.

Defend Liberty!

This sounds like someone's

This sounds like someone's attempt to allow the US save face. The whole thing is for show.

Whats the odds on those

Whats the odds on those wanting the war trying to add conditions to syrias voluntering

no odds...

it's a given.
They will haggle over the eventual 'destruction' of them.
They'd be absolute fools to move them... ain't gonna happen.

I think the US Government

I think the US Government calls this......"di-plo-ma-cy"......whatever that is /s

in other words....

Libyanize itself... but not 'quite'.
Putting the weapons 'under' Intnl control is DIFFERENT
than MOVING them.
The Devil is in the details... **grabs popcorn**
