"I am certain that there’s a chance for peace in Syria," he said, adding a warning that military intervention would further destabilize Syria and the region, Interfax news agency reported.

    • I’m thinking that there are some good things with lobbing the ball over to others at times.. exposing countries.. and letting the world see how Russia in charge works.. it’s always easy to protest and complain.. doing stuff is a different animal…

    • I’ve been watching a bit of fox lately as 1. they have become more moderate, and 2. msnbc has become too much of the same faces whining about the same stuff endlessly.
      So on “the five” they got into this discussion about hey wait a minute do we suddenly like Putin now? The jury was out it seemed.

    • Thanks, very good piece. And I liked the ending – Assad as the wild card here. As Russia steps up so does the risk of being sucked into the timeless Middle Estern mess.
