Looks like there's a big chance he's going to let Russia save the day...or let the fox guard the hen house.<quoted text>
The chance of obama attacking without congressional approval and UN backing are nil. His tiny window of opportunity has slammed shut, tighter than a drum...
Pretty sure Russia hasn't forgotten the Afghanis using the CIA's ground-to-air missiles in Afghanistan blowing their helicopters out of the sky or the end of the Cold War brought on with our help leading to the economic collapse of the USSR.
Putin isn't another Gorbachev and Obama is certainly not another Reagan. The animosity between them is so thick you can cut it with a knife. Not to mention Putin is on the side of Assad and both are mass murderers in their own right.
But, hey, maybe Putin just wants to do the right thing in securing Assad's chemical weapons and be seen as Obama's savior with no ulterior motive. Except to make Obama and America look weaker.
It's iffy at this point. What's your take?
