Russia will not accept such a deal. Putin correctly understands that Syria is vital for Russian security. If Syria is destroyed, Iran will soon follow, then Russia.

The line is drawn in the sand. Imagine if a Russian ship is sunk in the Mediterranean.

Unfortunately, there is no JFK in the White House to stand firm against the generals. Obama is spineless -- has allowed the generals to push him around.

Madmen rule the West.
