Probably is, but BO will get some credit for pushing it to this resolution... had he not pursued it, Assad may have already used them again. So yes, Putin is the bigger player after all he has >>> pull with Syria than we do.... but even he wouldn't be asking Assad to do this had the US not stepped up and applied pressure. And BO gets significant credit because no other nations stepped in with him... it's been mainly his "game" since the UK bowed out.

I want to see how Fox is going to spin this if it goes through. (fingers crossed) eek
