54. I'll give him credit if he can resist the impulse to sneak excuses for a war into the agreement

He has been given a gift from Heaven here between Congress's cold shoulder and Russia's gesture. Also, it must be said that Britain's refusal to make the same mistake they made before is key - it has a huge impact on our Congress.

In order for this prospective agreement to NOT lead to future grief basically it has to be "meaningless". There's no way for an agreement about Syrian WMDs to be implemented to everyone's satisfaction during the middle of a fucking civil war. The importance or meaning of the hoped for agreement is all in allowing the two great powers to back away from a suicidal confrontation over a country that has no intrinsic value to either of us. Mr. Obama should have had enough time now to reflect on how incredibly stupid nearly getting us into WWIII over Syria was. He should studiously avoid any language that would enable or obligate the US (under his or any succeeding administration) to foolishly dangle its weenie over the Sarlacc of the Middle East EVER AGAIN.


Stay the fuck out!
