    Another great post, Michael.
    What do you think of Russia’s willingness to back Kerry’s suggestion of the Int’l community going in to secure and monitor the wmds still in Syria? I found that a hopeful suggestion and one that could defer a military strike.

    The classic story of The Little Boy Whose Predecessor Cried Wolf.

    It’s my opinion that the deepest core of this matter has little to do with Islamofascism, or human rights, or Israel, or even oil. I think there are a lot of grey-haired, hard-faced men still stalking the halls of power who refuse to believe that the Cold War is over, and their ultimate prize in the Middle East is Iran- not for stability’s sake, but to remove all Russian influence from the region.
    It’s all just another proxy war to them, and they just can’t sleep at night until they finally “beat the Ruskies once and for all”.

    Gosh, no — it seems totally clear that this plan has been in the works for some days — at least back to the G20 meetings, and perhaps before. Obama and Putin had initial discussions, then Putin had to sound out Syria. Kerry then made it public in a way that committed no one, then Putin and Syria came on board, and Obama himself supported the idea. All very carefully orchestrated so that no one is caught out on a limb. It’s not a done deal, by a long shot, but there’s a least a chance now that the strike can be avoided.

    Given the international support for the new “Russian” plan to get everyone involved in Syria, not just the U.S., with a plan even Israel will endorse, and given Obama’s long reluctance to support war and military action, and Kerrry’s, is it possible they’ve just very wisely “punk’d” all the chickenhawks and morons?

    Let us hope the “community” will not only remove the offending weapons , but back it up with action in the ICC , that organization the US has refused to support in the past.
