Obama accepts the Russian gambit

According to the BBC, Obama has decided that the Russian proposal was "a possible Syria resolution".  Of course, Obama will wrap this is all sorts of caveats, expressions of distrust, threats and warnings, but the bottom line is this: it appears that the momentum for an attack is now fully lost.

If you ask me, Putin and/or Lavrov deserve a Nobel Peace Prize for averting this attack (even if another one comes later).  Maybe jointly with Snowden, Assange and Manning.  The Nobel Committee could do that to wash away of the disgrace of having given this prize to Obama.

I know, I am dreaming.

Going to bed now.  Am exhausted.

Cya tomorrow!
