  •  I think that Kerry just made an offhand remark (0+ / 0-)

    which made sense, that they'd been trying to do something diplomatically about the CW for years, and there was no movement, and there had been no sign Russia would play a constructive role.

    Now that the admin. has gone this far, committed this much to a military strike, I'm sure they won't back off on the hard rhetorical line until there is  substantive action by Assad to comply.
    I'm sure they'd love a diplomatic settlement that includes UN functionality. That would be a wonderful thing, a prize for the admin.

    It all depends on whether Russia and Syria are serious, or are just playing for time.

    You can't make this stuff up.
