    Obama Rescues Assad
    The President lets Putin outmaneuver him on Syrian chemical arms.


    What could be worse for America's standing in the world than a Congress refusing to support a President's proposal for military action against a rogue regime that used WMD? Here's one idea: A U.S. President letting that rogue be rescued from military punishment by the country that has protected the rogue all along.

    That's where President Obama now finds himself on Syria after he embraced Russian President Vladimir Putin's offer to take custody of Bashar Assad's chemical weapons. The move may rescue Mr. Obama and Congress from the political agony of a vote on a resolution to authorize a military strike on Syria. But the diplomatic souk is now open, and Mr. Obama has turned himself into one of the junior camel traders.

    In the Spirit of Politics,


    Obama agrees to give Russia's Syria plan a chance

    US President Barack Obama postponed his threat to strike Syria, after Bashar al-Assad's regime welcomed a Russian plan to gather and destroy its chemical arsenal.

    In an address from the White House, Obama said he had asked US lawmakers to delay a vote on whether to authorize military action while Washington studies the Russian initiative.

    "It's too early to tell whether this offer will succeed, and any agreement must verify that the Assad regime keeps its commitments," a somber Obama warned.

    "But this initiative has the potential to remove the threat of chemical weapons without the use of force, particularly because Russia is one of Assad's strongest allies."

    Obama said US cruise missile destroyers would remain stationed in the eastern Mediterranean, ready to administer a punitive strike.

    "The US military doesn't do pinpricks," he said. "Even a limited strike will send a message to Assad that no other nation can deliver."
