Although, I do not put to much trust into the former head of the KGB and now premier of Russia, what he has to say makes sense to me. However, this is not over yet, as all parties have to agree with the plan for Syria to give up its chemical stock pile. How do we know Assad has not already moved them? We don't!!! And how do we know whose hands they are now in? We don't'! Mr. Putin, these are questions that the international community has to answer, as well as the dictator of Syria. Do you honestly believe that Americans or anyone else believes this man is not brutal? Let me tell you something " comrade" Putin.....if this effort fails, and the American president initiates a strike, we will support it. Assad is a brutal human being as is his brother, and as his father was as well. We know all about Syria's history, so please do not feed us the borscht about how squeaky clean Bashir Assad is because the man is a mass murderer.
