ed note–we realize it is a little early, but it seems that this is Obama’s way of saying there will be no strikes on Syria. The agreement–brokered by Putin–to have Assad turn over his chemical weapons to international handlers in return for the Americans backing away from war has worked. Obama got his graceful exit.
ON THE OTHER HAND HOWEVER, now is the time to worry. Benjamin Netanyahu is absolutely out of his mind with rage right now, given the fact that his little war with Syria that he hoped would become a bigger war with Iran is not going to happen.
And so on this, 2 days before the 9/11 anniversary, it is not the time to be breathing easy just yet.
