One thing that seems to have come about by default, was the rather intelligent media question of the sabre-rattling John Kerry: "What must Syria do to avoid to prevent a military strike?"

"Surrender your chemical weapon stockpile" he glibly replies, as an off the cuff aside.

"OK" Says Syria.

"Bollocks" thinks the US warmongering ********. "How can we possibly backtrack?"

"Hmmm, let's make a wholly unrealistic resolution timeframe, that ought to do it"

yep American politician's aren't looking clever obama's red line then horse face giving Assad a perfect excuse to avoid annilation,give's a clue to their foreign policie's perhap's.....

Interestingly, it looks like UK intend making a contribution to the UN declaration regarding the terms of removing Syrian government forces chemical weapons from the conflict.

Odd that Hague, the guy that wants to arm the rebels, hasn't thought to mention it may just be an idea if the rebel forces gave-up their chemical weapon stocks also.

you could not make this situation up the US want's to arm A.Q affiliated group's at the same time as the 9/11 attack's,not to mention the fact that it is the Saudi arabian's who are funding the so called FSA,both hate Israel,i bet those WMD are safer with Assad than AQ as far as America goes.......also if Assad fall's there is surely going to be an epic ethnic blood bath is America going to take the responsibilty for this.....it is the Russian's and the Chinese who are acting lawfully here they are the voice of reason IMHO

Is it just me or does anyone else see that very good point as really bloody scary?
It is, isn't it.

Before we all get carried away with the munificence of Russia (ooh, there's a long word) ...Russia's overriding concern is ensuring it maintains a warm-water port. The spin-off is that there's a very real possibility that they may well have provided the wherewithal to avoid further international military involvement in this already appalling and ongoing bloodbath.
