Is THIS The REAL Reason Putin is Supporting Assad? The One Sentence That Could Explain it ALL!

Yahoo News reporting:

The White House called a small group of reporters for behind-the-scenes briefing on Friday and let it be known that the United States doesn't expect a U.N. Security Council resolution on Syria to include the explicit threat of force to compel Bashar Assad’s cooperation.
In effect, senior administration officials let it be known that President Barack Obama was OK with giving up something that was never really on the table to begin with, according to news reports.
Russia, which has the power to veto any Security Council resolution, has been saying for days that Obama must take back his threat to go to war — only then will Assad agree to put his chemical weapons under international control.
It’s not like Moscow was going to turn around and green light the threat of force in a U.N. resolution.
At the same time, Obama has made it clear that the threat of unilateral American military action isn't going away. And a senior administration official told Yahoo News that’s not up for negotiation with the Russians.

So how would a resolution be enforced? The measure could include a threat of sanctions. It could also include a trigger referring the matter back to the Security Council.
The U.S. official told Yahoo News that early signs of Russo-American cooperation are solid — chemical weapons experts from both sides have met, for instance — but that Obama is looking carefully at progress on drafting the resolution for any signs that President Vladimir Putin is double-dealing.
Russia may be treading carefully on the language of the Syria proposal in part because Moscow feels burned by the U.N. Security Council resolution on Libya.
The measure won approval without support from Russia and China, which abstained. Neither country is particularly keen to set a precedent for international involvement to punish a central government taking military action against an armed insurrection.
In that conflict, NATO-led forces ended up serving as the de facto air force for rebel forces that ultimately toppled Moammar Gadhafi.View gallery

But the resolution did not explicitly envision that role. Instead, it called for “all necessary measures … to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, including Benghazi, while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory.”
And it also green-lighted “all necessary measures to enforce compliance” with a no-fly zone over Libya.
Moscow is Assad’s patron and stands to lose influence in the Middle East if he meets the same fate as Gadhafi. 
Please pay special attention to the final sentence in that report. "Moscow is Assad’s patron and stands to lose influence in the Middle East if he meets the same fate as Gadhafi."

Has ever a single sentence revealed so much?

Oh, and let's not forget Obama's pledge "to include the explicit threat of force to compel Bashar Assad’s cooperation." This war is far from over with Putin arming Assad and Obama arming the rebels.

Stay tuned!


  1. It is already a war by Proxy. Those that do not believe for one minute that IF Ovomit bombs Syria, that it will not start WWIII with Russia and China joining in, are delusional.

  2. It is estimated that up to half of the 100,000 or so Syrian rebels are Islamic-terrorists. It is known that between 25% and 50% are Islamic-terrorists. When the Obama administration arms "the Syrian rebels" Obama is arming the enemies of America. That is treason against the people of the Unites States of America whether the Congress or the Senate act on it or not.

    Hopefully there will be enough weapons on both sides that they will kill each other off.

  3. With Isaiah 17-19 unfolding before our very eyes, quite a few "prophecy experts" (I am NOT one of them) only talk about half of the prophecies of Syria and Egypt, The destruction parts. However, the bible is clear about one thing, both Syria and Egypt in the end will be aligned with Israel as one with the Eternal, with a highway from Egypt to Syria,(it has to go through Israel.) We know where we are today, and we know what the end results are. The fuzzy part is what lies in between. If you cast off the impatience of discovery, the bible will fill in more of these blank fuzzies.

    I fall more into the camp that feels that the Ottoman Empire is the Beast (a coalition of nations and not an individual.). This is the Beast with the deadly head wound that was revived. It received the deadly head wound by defeat in World War I. The Ottoman Empire is now forming. If that is the case then Turkey will be the head of that Empire once more and Syria will be part of that coalition of nations. For that to happen, the Shia faction must give way to the Sunni.
