Syria Accepts Russian Proposal To Surrender Chemical Weapons, Foreign Minister Says
Sep 10, 2013

The Associated Press reports Syria's Foreign Minister has said his country has accepted a Russian proposal to relinquish control of its chemical arms stores:


On Monday, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem stated that his country welcomed the Russian proposal, which called for Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control and for the weapons to be destroyed.

No time frame or further details were given about the proposal. It remained unclear whether Syria was making genuine strides toward resolving the conflict that began in March 2011, or if the proposal was a ploy by Syrian President Bashar Assad to buy more time in the face of a potential U.S. strike.

This is a breaking news alert. Check back for more updates on this developing story.

 I hope that any sort of stall (aka delay) could only be a good thing.

Nothing good comes when action occurs in the heat of the moment.

But isnt Sarin "easy" to make?

Dont get me wrong I am glad they accepted the proposal but still concerned about the situation.  I am very glad that they accepted though.

Fingers crossed, ladies. Use whatcha got: prayer, meditation, voodoo, offerings, rituals, magic, etc to hope this brings a less violent and more diplomatic close to this episode of "As The Drums Of War Beat".

Good. Hopefully this will be enough of an action for the U.S. to "save face" and leave it the hell alone...

AND a learning experience to keep our noses out of it and our mouths shut in the future without first determining that we'll be able to back up our "threats".
