Whip The Fish! US-Russia reach deal on Syria

fish slapping dance

The Obama regime and Russia have reached an agreement on Syria:

  1. Syria’s Assad regime has one week to submit a “comprehensive” list of all its chemical weapons.
  2. UN inspectors are to inspect all weapons sites by November.
  3. The Assad regime must surrender all its chemical weapons, which will be destroyed or removed by mid-2014.
  4. Failure to comply will result in the U.S. seeking an U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing sanctions on the Assad regime, but those sanctions will NOT include military action. (Since Russia and China are permanent members of the UN Security Council, they will be sure to veto any meaningful sanctions.)

In other words, Obama is staying true to my friend Jay Gaskill, Esq.’s characterization of the POS’s rules of engagement, “Bully like a flea. Sting like a butterfly,” or as our Trail Dust’s cleverly put it, Whip The Fish:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reached an agreement this morning on a framework for Syria to destroy all of its chemical weapons, and said they would seek a U.N. Security Council resolution that could authorize sanctions – short of military action – if Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government fails to comply.

The deal calls for international inspectors, who must be given “immediate and unfettered” access to inspect all sites, to be on the ground in Syria by November and to complete their initial work by the end of that month. All of Syria’s chemical weapons stocks, material and equipment would have to be destroyed or removed by mid-2014.

Obama regime officials had said the POS was open to a Security Council resolution that did not include military force as a punishment if Assad doesn’t follow through on promises regarding the weapons. While Russia would be all but certain to veto any measure with such a penalty, Obama’s willingness to concede the point – after threatening a U.S.-led military strike with or without approval by the U.S. Congress – provided a step forward.

Another major feature of the agreement is that Syria has one week, until Sept. 21, to submit “a comprehensive listing, including names, types and quantities of its chemical weapons agents, types of munitions, and local and form of storage, production, and research and development facilities.”

U.N. inspectors are expected to turn in their own poison gas report this weekend.

Obugger’s foreign policy is just like that – except there’s more mincing and less slapping.

I think this whole deal was a planned psyop from start to finish in order to get Syria’s chemical weapons stock. Threatening to bomb was a bluff and congress voting on it just another dog & pony show. The real perpetrators of the any gassing that occurred will still have their stash.

Wot the wot? Russia has the largest stockpile of chemical weapons at present and the US has plenty too. Even if Israel doesn’t have them they have the capability of producing them within a few months so even if Assad does this the use of chemical weapons is stil a potential threat. Agent Orange and White Phospherous are conveniently not listed as chemical weapons so that must be a great relief to those affected by them. Who is the fish, and who is the whipper? Does that mean we have a new political tool called a Whipperfisher? Aren’e we meant… Read more »

Gotta love Monty Python.

The consequence of Obama’s foot in mouth disease: the Free Syria Army have stated that they won’t cooperate. This entity wants the US to bomb Syria.

Before Monty Python there was The Goon Show. Brian Cleese was part of it and there were Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan and Dudley Moore from the famous Footlights company part of I think it was Cambridge University.
Spike Milligan’s song went like this “I”m walking backwards for Christmas Across the Irish Sea To prove that I”m not me”. Abbreviated so you all aren’t aslepp at the end of it. but it’s pretty much on the nail.
