@simian, you are being sarcastic I assume. Without the threat of force, Assad will do nothing. So if he doesn’t comply then what? We call him names?

Sorry Monkey boy, but it is the terrorists in the Democrat party that are holding Americans hostage in their attempt to to create a fascist slave state. Democrats are the true enemy of America and Americans.

Wow, a piece of paper is all it takes for peace. Oh wait, the weapons are still there in the hands of someone who apparently has no problem using them. But no, they will not be used – because the daunting threat of unspecified punitive sanctions will surely deter.

Heading into The 2014 OLYMPICS with the host country Russia propping up the indefensible terrorist Assad regime in Syria, terrorizing Greenpeace activists, encouraging brutality against gays, and recruiting Super Spy Edward Snowden to loot the NSA database.

Make no mistake, Bashar Assad is a TERRORIST using chemical weapons to terrorize those not killed sending them fleeing, as any sane person would. He invited Terrorist Hezbollah in to fight against the heroic rebels, with their method of doing so to shoot children from hidden sniper positions.

Expect a grim Olympics resembling the Games in Berlin, with Assad lavishly hosted by the thug Putin.

The Drudge Report headline to this link says that “Russia wins…”. Drudge is good for finding important news but his interpretation is baloney in this case. It was not Russia who won – it was diplomacy and (hopefully will be) peace.

This scheme by Russia gives the Obama administration the one thing it wants: a way out. No one but Assad knows the locations of all the banned weapons, and all that will happen is a great show of disposing of some of them, while the rest remain hidden. Everyone will go home from the party happy.

Diplomacy with terrorist. There is no diplomacy needed.
We needed to send a clear message that you can’t use chemical weapons. Simple as that. The left once again, cowards… are ruining this country
in just a matter of years. Like it or not.. WE ARE THE WORLD POLICE.
As God fearing people… it is hard to to the right thing at times.
We are a super power, and the biggest at that. With that comes huge responsibility. Gassing women and children… and we do nothing.

It is quite simple.
Traditionally, all UNSC resolutions went under Chapter 7. So AFTER passing resolutions three NATO members decided how to rule.

Not any longer. All international interventions are either illegal, or they are the common will of the world.
It turned out absolutely clear at the G-20 that the whole world was behind Russia and China: India, Brazil, Argentina. And even Mexico.

You want an NATO or unilateral intervention – please do it.
However, it will be illegal. And under the authority of The Hague Court. In theory, at least.

Our fearless leader leading from behind once again, Obama has achieved his goal of a machismo international presentation, but with the UN restraining the US from a military solution. Paradoxically, this is the right result on the Syria issue BUT with a perverse route taken by Obama to simultaneously neuter USA presence on the world stage. Can anyone say “gelding”?

Why are Western political parties staging obvious false flag operations all over the world? Take a look at the pictures out of Kenya. Not one drop of blood on the vast majority of the “victims” being carried, nor those carrying the “victims”. You’ll also find hilariously staged photos where civilians, in full view of the “Islamists”, are taking pictures of the “Islamists” in action!

So who benefits from the “War on Islam”? The Communists do, who co-opted Western political parties decades ago.

Take a look at these pictures out of Russia…

Google: ‘Photos: Antonov An-12BK-PPS Aircraft Pictures | Airliners net’

and

Google: ‘MiG-23UB Share this photo on forums’

Then for Russian Naval vessels (take a look at what’s still appended to the bows)…

Google (enlarge picture): ‘Russia seeks sea power with decrepit fleet Base expansion likely an empty threat’

Those pictures were taken in 2009, 2011 and 2001, respectively, not before the “collapse” of the USSR. As you can see, the Soviet era nationality emblem of the Communist Party…the Red Star… is still present. That political symbol of the Soviet government would have been immediately removed in early 1992 if the “collapse” of the USSR were genuine. As the legal emblem of the USSR and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the Red Star emblem can only be present if Communists are still in power in Russia and the other 14 republics that made up the USSR.

Now, for the main paper of the Russian Ministry of Defense…

Google: ‘Krasnaya Zvezda’

“Krasnaya Zvezda” is Russian (no kidding!) for “Red Star”, the official newspaper of Soviet and later Russian Ministry of Defense. The paper’s official designation is, “Central Organ of the Russian Ministry of Defense.” Note the four Soviet emblems next to the still existing Soviet era masthead, one of which pictures Lenin’s head!

The fraudulent “collapse” of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn’t have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Moscow & Allies, which explains why verification of the “collapse” was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan’s favorite phrase, “Trust, but verify”.

Now you know why the hated Communist Red Star is still placed on the bows of NEW Russian Naval vessels (and the wings of Russian military aircraft), and why the “electorates” of the 15 republics that made up the USSR continue to “elect” for President Soviet era Communist Party Quislings. There have been 52 such Presidential “elections” since the “collapse” of the USSR, resulting in 40 Soviet era Communist Party member Quislings being elected. That’s 76.92%! If the “collapse” of the USSR were legitimate not one such Quisling would have been elected President. In fact, such persons would have been either arrested in the interests of national security or shunned by society. Remember, Communist Party members made up no more than 10% of the USSR, and it was they who for 74 years persecuted the remaining 90% of the population.

Imagine it’s 1784 America. The Treaty of Paris (1783) was signed the previous year ending the revolutionary war with Britain. So who do the electorates of the newly independent 13 colonies elect for their respective governors? They elect persons who were Loyalists (American supporters of Great Britain) during the war for independence! Of course, in reality the persecution was so bad for Loyalists in post independence America that they had to flee the country en masse for Canada.

Or try this one out: After the collapse of the South African Apartheid Regime in 1994, the majority black population reelect for their Presidents only persons who were National Party members before the 1994 elections!

Now you also know why immediately after the “collapse” of the USSR the United States wasn’t given Russia’s strategic nuclear weapons, including delivery vehicles, for safe keeping! Imagine that, the freed Russian people not ensuring their freedom against a Communist counter-coup with the assistance of Chinese PLA ground and air forces backing up Soviet Special Forces and Airborne Guards. If the “collapse” of the USSR had been real, then a freed Russia, for national security reasons, would have ensured that its nuclear weaponry was secured by United States military elements. That no such actions were taken proves that (1) both American political parties were co-opted by Moscow & Allies; and (2) the United States Armed Forces were not co-opted, otherwise elements of America’s armed forces would have been deployed to Russia in order to pretend to safeguard Russia’s nuclear weapons.

In addition, the KGB agent Quislings that controlled the Russian Orthodox Church before the “collapse” of the USSR are to this day still in control! They were never identified and thrown out of that institution after the “collapse” of the USSR! The same is true for the other 14 republics of the USSR, including East Bloc nations.

For those unfamiliar with this subject, the “collapse” of the USSR in 1991 was a strategic ruse under the “Long-Range Policy” (LRP). What is the LRP, you ask? The LRP is the “new” strategy all Communist nations signed onto in 1960 to defeat the West with. The last major disinformation operation under the LRP was the “collapse” of the USSR in 1991. The next major disinformation operation under the LRP will be the fraudulent collapse of the Chinese Communist government. When that occurs, Taiwan will be stymied from not joining the mainland.

The “War on Terror” & Iraq War I and II:

Regarding the “War on Terror”, Moscow and Beijing tasked America to conduct the operation to ensure that while the USSR was in a “liberalized” and therefore weakened state, such a war would (1) create enmity between Islam and the West; thereby (2) aborting any possibility for an alliance between Islam and the non-co-opted militaries of the West against their mutual and true enemy…World Communism; and (3) create the image that the United States is a rogue state, invading/attacking nations with impunity, thereby setting the stage for a future “democratic” China replacing United States preeminence on the world stage.

Before the fraudulent collapse of the USSR in December 1991 Moscow tasked Washington, DC to ready the 1990 Gulf War with Iraq. Why? Because Moscow, after the “collapse”, was going to intentionally implode its economy to ensure foreign investments went to China instead. Russia could live on the relatively higher price that its oil exports (Russia is #2 behind Saudi Arabia in oil exports) would obtain thanks to the United States placing an embargo on Iraqi oil, thereby raising the world price of oil relative to the lower price the commodity would have fetched if the Iraq embargo hadn’t been in place. China has no such export market for oil, therefore would have to rely on foreign investments to build her military.

Then by 2001 oil began getting too expensive due to India’s emergence on the economic scene, threatening China’s military buildup. To ensure China had the oil it needed, and at a lower relative price then what it would have been otherwise, and not exhaust Russian oil reserves, Moscow once again tasked Washington, DC to invade Iraq for the purpose of now opening up Iraq’s oil reserves once again to the world oil market. Hence the March 2003 Iraqi War, and why China is the major player that has benefited from Iraqi oil contracts.

By the way, four months after the Ford administration took power in August 1974 the one man in the CIA leading the fight against the LRP was forced out of the agency, CIA Counterintelligence Chief James Angleton. With Angleton gone, KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn became persona non grata at the agency too. Guess who President Ford’s first White House Chief of Staff was who oversaw the firing of Angleton? Donald Rumsfeld! Guess who Rumsfeld’s assistant was? Dick Cheney! The same two KGB moles that gave us the “War on Terror”, the purpose for the war being to (1) create enmity between Islam and the West; because (2) when the USSR “liberalized” it would be in a weakened condition vis-à-vis the West, and the last thing Moscow (and Beijing) needed was an alliance between Islam and the West against their mutual and natural enemy…Communism; and (3) destroy the United States Armed Forces via a never ending war.

Notice that Washington, DC refuses to wage illegal wars against China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos and Burma, all nations that persecute their populations in one way or another. Only Muslim nations are invaded? Why would that be? Why is the United States funding the so-called “Arab Spring” movements, but not “Communist Spring” movements in China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos and Burma (Burma is also a Communist nation; in fact, the fake dissident Aung San Suu Kyi’s father founded the Burmese Communist Party in 1939, becoming its first General Secretary, which is why Aung San Suu Kyi keeps her silence as Burmese Muslims are being slaughtered. Didn’t know those facts, huh?)?

For more on the “Long-Range Policy”, read KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn’s book, “New Lies for Old” (available at Internet Archive), the only Soviet era defector to still be under protective custody in the West.

If anyone is interested in a list of “victors” names of those 52 “elections” that have taken place in the republics of the “former” USSR, let me know. I’ll post it. The list also includes the Soviet era Communist Party status of the “victor”.
