Now Obama sees a way out. He knows that Putin is controlling the situation here, but at least now he can avoid an embarrassing congressional “no” vote, the first in American history. But hmmmmmm. Maybe Obama can get some of his grove back here. So he tells us that he was actually talking about this plan for Assad to give up his chemical weapons when he was meeting with Putin last week! Yeah … sure.
So…Here we are. Harry Reid has already put off the Senate vote. After tonight’s speech by 0bama Reid will probably announce that the vote is postponed indefinitely. The House may go ahead with a vote, but in light of Putin’s little parlay that vote will be cast as nothing more than an attempt to embarrass Obama.
An agreement will be reached between the ass-kicker, the community organizer and the gasser for Syria to turn over “all” of its chemical weapons. Of course “all” of the weapons will not be turned over. There will be inspections, but Putin will work with Assad to make sure the inspections are not too thorough. In the end Assad will keep a good portion of those chemical weapons, and Putin will supply him with even more arms.
The violence in Syria will continue, though the rebels will be dispirited. In time Assad will once again use whatever chemical weapons he retained to keep the rebels at bay if that becomes necessary. But wait! How can Assad use these weapons and not as much as admit that he didn’t turn them all over to the United Nations? Well, that one is easy. He’ll use the weapons and tell the world “See! I told you I didn’t use those weapons in the first place! You didn’t believe me. Now I gave up my chemical weapons…yet they’re still being used against the rebels! This just proves, as I said, that the rebel factions have these weapons and are using them and blaming it all on me!”
High fives in Putin’s lair!
