Just on FOX, more details to come. As per FOX news, the UN security council just canceled their 4:00PM meeting to discuss a resolution, because Russia has backed out. At the same time, Obama has just asked congress for a delay regarding their vote on using force.

Withdrawn because the French still want the US to attack Syria.

"Russia balked at a French plan to enforce an international agreement under a binding U.N. Security Council resolution with a military option if necessary. ....a telephone conversation between French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, revealed a deep divide over their visions of the Security Council’s role — and particularly over the prospect of military action to ensure that an agreement would be honored."

cliff notes of current situation so far:



- Kerry says something about if Syria gave up its NBC weapons, there wouldnt be a strike followed by 'but they wont do that'

- Russia picks up the fumble and throws the idea to Syria

- Syria says sure

- during interview with Chris Wallace, Obama says it was all his idea ()

- today, Russia adds a caveat that the resolution must say that there will be no threat of force

- UN cancels 4pm meeting

- everyone stands around wtf is going on and why we are conducting foreign policy by 'accident'

- Obama is in checkmate.  if he capitulates to 'no threat of force' he loses (Syria has one of the largest stockpiles in the world.  getting to these and the like in peace time is a huge pita.  doing it in the midst of a civil war?  buahhahahahaha!)  if he doesnt capitulate, he loses.
