Putin just showing up makes Obama look weaker. Putin's not a fraud. That's the difference.<quoted text>
This is really what Putin proposed, and will not be acceptable to Obama.
Not because it's not a good idea, but because it would make Obama look even weaker.
Heel, Barack! Good boy!
So what if Obama objects to Putin taking the chemical weapons out of Syria and putting them in Russia. The goal is to get them out of the hands of Assad, right? What's Obama going to do?
Obama gets what his mouth says he wants.
The only problem is, the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda don't want those chemical weapons taken out of Syria. They won't be able to get their hands on them if the chemical weapons are in Russia.
Obama is an ignorant buffoon playing chess with a master. The outcome is predictable.
