Full story: The Washington Post

MOSCOW Russia dramatically intensified its denunciations of American threats to attack Syrian military targets on Saturday, as President Vladimir Putin called the arguments about chemical weapons that underlie the American case "utter nonsense."

and what if Al-Qaada will get power in Syria in cse Asad will be gone? I think results in Egypt and Lybia are not that great - will be worse in Syria, no?

Of course he is, Obama made another mistake by throwing all these threats and "red lines" out without consulting our allies or having any forward plans, now his hesitation is seen as indecisiveness and backtracking by those who oppose us.
They see this as weakness and will exploit it to the fullest. Whatever Obama does now, he and our foreign policy lose.

This is leadership 101 folks, a course Obama knows nothing of leadership and is being played once again by Putin.

Putin has us where wants us. He wins either way if we attack Syria or not. Even better for him if Obama doesn't get Congressional approval.

it is well known that Asad and legal Syrian government are winning this uss-issrael-saudi backed war by using conventional methods and they did not needed to use chemical weapon and they wouldn´t do it.
Firstly it is not known if it was chemical weapon,,,hard,, proofs are only in not very healthy heads of some uss and issraeli criminal politicians and if they are so sure it means that they are behind and perpetretors of such chemical attaccks or their fellows from mosad or cia or their rebels.
And if it wasn´t chemical attack, it cane be that it was natural epidemy of deadly coronaviren, which lead to such SARS-like disease.
And if usa and issraeli will destroy Syria, just like they did it with Iraq and Afghanistan and many other countries, they will go henceforth, next will be Iran, Russia, China. It must be better now peaceful front to prevent from all later tragedies.By the way Asad and his governmenet were good for Syrians, they did not break international laws, they did not break laws in own country, they have taken care of Syria and Syrians. What a disastreus pile of lies was put in heads of some simple people about this Asad: they are good politicians.

Obama already shitted his pants and says about limitted operation in Syria, just to punish Assad. However, limitted operation will not destroy the regime of Assad. Several,even if many, destroyed buildings will not disable Syrian army, which will continue to fight and win.

Certainly it will come down to a fullout war on Syria.
It will not be enough to apply special forces, as it was done in Libya, US marines, infantry, tanks will be required. That will be a long term conflict for USA.

You bigots make everyone sick. You feel so entitled to everything and have no acceptance for growth and new ideas but must blame all you own misgivings and misfortunes on the Jews or the Blacks or the Natives. It used to be the Puerto Ricans and Italians and Portuguese then went on to communists, is this the way your culture prefers to live?

I am not Jewish, nor Israeli, but I have no issue with them. It is mostly jealousy and insecurity in people that causes these ugly remarks. Most Jews just work and are successful they do not buck the system, if they have an issue they go through the proper channels like good citizens are supposed to.

Just look at Hollywood and Jewelry Stores, and textile industry, they had almost all of it taken from them at one time and still put it back together, they should be admired not mocked, and I believe people that put them down are just insecure mooks.

Of course there are some Jewish people that are unfriendly and arrogant and are horn honking but I thought that was just the New York influence, lol

It is good that there are sane, wise politicians like pres. Putin. If there wouldn´t be such politicians, fellowship usa-israel would demolish everything.

I don´t really understand these Syrian so called Syrian opposition. These people are really stupid. There is no democracy in Saudi Arabia, there is fanatical, intolerate country ruled by despoctic, anachronical kings, who torture and murder opposition and prosecute own nation, there is no religious tolerance, there is No respecting of women´ or even men rights. Majority of this nation are illiterates and all prsperity is in hands of king. How do these likely Syrian opposition see their future? If this Assad would loose ( such black scenario), they will loose Iran and Russia as allies, they will loose aid from these countries, they will loose interest in this country and evrybody will loose interest, they will be next Iraq, Libia, Yemen, Afghanistanalike chaos with prosaudis, wahabis, who go with selfmade bombs or they will be a poor colony of neighbour from tora nation. It is clear that tora nation has own criminal plan: after weakening or demolishing Syria, they annex part of Syria territory to their tora-promised zion.
Make agreement with this Assad, because he is the best and optimal, what Syria and Syrian nation has. He is quarantee of stability for Syria.Maybe he must make more rights for these Syrian sunnis that he tolerates him more.By the way I don´t think that he was bad for sunnis in Syria, they could practise their religion and evrybody could practise own religions there. What is the problem now?

Syria is too close to Iran for Israeli and Saudi comfort and needed to be destabilized for their supposed benefit. That's the beginning, middle and end of this convoluted story.
