36. "If" and "but." That's what Obama will do.

I have been asking people here to flood the WH.gov site with pleas to not attack Syria. I did this and at the same time I offered a suggestion to allow Assad to give up his chem stash and allow them to be destroyed and in return the USs would call off an "imminent" attack. Ask the Russians to negotiate with Assad to call the rebels into account while also offering them a chance to make their grievances known. Off a chance for the rebels...all groups...to meet together under UN security to air out their differences and come up with a plan that would allow them to work together to get Assad to make concessions on running the country with the rebels playing a role. But all sides must agree to allow Christians, and all Muslim sects to worship freely and operate their businesses without being subjected to warfare. Well at least the first half of the suggestion was thought of and seems to be in place.

If Assad agrees and seriously allows the takeover of his chemical weapons stashes than the next negotiation step could take place. But is he doesn't make a good faith effort than nations should proceed to wipe out these sites through covert ground operations by offering safe harbor to Assad's military generals and folks who know about the chemical weapons sites.
