Obama agrees to UN discussion of Russia proposal on Syria chemical weapons

Was this in the US government’s wider plans? Russia seems to be exercising true diplomacy to diffuse US aggression in the middle east.

While this seems to be a de-escalation of the tense situation that had developed over the past month and had came to a head with US threats of a strike on Syrian targets, it is also avoidance of the question - WHO was ultimately responsible for the alleged chemical attacks of Aug. 21, 2013 which killed approximately 1500 innocent civilians?
Now the topic will probably be dropped altogether. With the Syrians potentially handing over weapons to assure the world of a ’stand down’, the implied mainstream conclusion is that Assad gassed his own people, even though it was never proven.

Will the truth of the chemical attacks be buried to avoid a wider war with further deaths? Apparently so.

’Peaceful solution’: Syria accepts Russia deal to hand over chemical weapons
By Albina Kovalyova, Keir Simmons and Alastair Jamieson |NBC News

President Barack Obama has agreed to discuss Russia’s proposal that Syria hand over chemical weapons, the White House said Tuesday after Damascus confirmed it would accept such a deal.

Talks begin at the United Nations later Tuesday, a White House official told NBC News, even as Obama prepared to address Congress - and the American people - over the need for military strikes.

Earlier, Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem told NBC News in Moscow that he hoped acceptance of the "peaceful solution" would "put an end to the war."

He was speaking hours after France announced it would seek a U.N. Security Council resolution along similar lines. That added to the international momentum behind the proposal, which has already been endorsed by Iran and China and cautiously welcomed by Britain and Germany.

Obama said Monday that the Russia plan offered a potential path that averted U.S. military strikes, but Secretary of State John Kerry cautioned that the only reason the Russia solution has "potential legs at all" is because of a credible threat of force.

"Nothing focuses the mind like the prospect of a hanging," Kerry told a Congressional committee Tuesday. He said Obama would look at the plan but added: "We’re waiting for that proposal but we’re not waiting for long.”

Kerry said it had been the “credible use of force” by the U.S. that has, “for the first time brought this regime to even acknowledge that they have a chemical weapons arsenal,” adding that the threat of military action “is more compelling if the Congress stands with the commander in chief.”

His case for limited airstrikes targeting Assad’s regime was boosted early Tuesday when a Human Rights Watch report blamed Syrian government forces for the Aug. 21 poison gas attack that killed hundreds of people.

The U.S.-based rights group said it had reached its conclusion after analyzing witness accounts, remnants of the weapons used and medical records of victims.

HRW said it did not believe the attack could have been carried out by rebels or other “terrorists” as a smokescreen, as suggested by Assad. "Human Rights Watch and arms experts monitoring the use of weaponry in Syria have not documented Syrian opposition forces to be in possession of the 140mm and 330mm rockets used in the attack, or their associated launchers," the report added.

Russia’s diplomatic solution appeared to be gathering momentum internationally -- as an attractive option for many U.S. allies who agree with the White House stance against chemical weapons but who are reluctant to be drawn into another Middle East military conflict.

President Barack Obama has agreed to discuss Russia’s proposal that Syria hand over chemical weapons, the White House said Tuesday after Damascus confirmed it would accept such a deal.

Talks will begin at the United Nations later Tuesday, a White House official told NBC News, even as Obama prepares to address Congress -- and the American people -- to make the case for authorization to use military strikes if diplomatic solutions fail.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said the U.S., France and Britain would propose a UN Security Council resolution shortly.
