Syria: Putin blinked as Obama made Russia own the war
ON Syria… Putin blinked. President Obama:
“Had we rolled out something that was very smooth and disciplined and linear, they would have graded it well, even if it was a disastrous policy. We know that, because that’s exactly how they graded the Iraq war.”
“I welcome him being involved. I welcome him saying, ‘I will take responsibility for pushing my client, the Assad regime, to deal with these chemical weapons.’”
Aha! And with that Obama diverts attention and makes Russia take ownership of the war.
