Putin Demands the U.S., Not Assad, Renounce Use of Force

Now Putin announces that the Russian deal on Syrian chemical weapons only works if there are no consequences for not honoring it:

Russia’s initiative to place Syrian chemical weapon stockpiles under international control will only be feasible if the United States and its allies pledge not to use force, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday.

It is difficult to obligate any country, including Syria, to unilaterally disarm if force is going to be used against it, Putin said, adding that the Russian authorities “will work together with the Syrians and with our American partners.”

Assad gasses people and resumed bombing his people today, and it’s the United States that is expected to renounce the use of military force.

I’m sure he has only the best of intentions.
