Tatterdemalian: jaybeezey: Tatterdemalian: Most likely result: Assad launches WMDs at Israel.

Assad: "You only said not to launch them at the rebels, nothing about launching them at the Jews."
Putin: "He's right, sorry USA. Our hands are tied. Heh heh heh."
Rebels: "Oh, he's killing Jews? I guess Assad's not so bad, and we'd better support him or Israel will obliterate us all."
Israel: "OMGWTFBBQ. We demand our allies join us in fighting back."
USA: "Uh... sorry, but we decided you're not worth starting WWIII over. You're on your own, Israel."

You forgot the last line:

Israel: "Oh well, begin Operation "Glass Damascus".

Didn't happen when Saddam launched SCUDs at Tel Aviv, probably won't happen if Assad does the same.

/Assad would end up like Saddam
//his only other option is ending up like Ghaddafi, though


As long as they are scuds with explosive warheads you are right, Israel would just pound Syria with conventional weapons. If Syria were to use chemical weapons against Israel all bets are off. For some reason that I can't recall right off the top of my head, Jewish people in general have been real touchy about poison gas for the last 70 years or so. This is especially true for Jews that left certain European nations and moved to the middle east after a small disagreement with the political party that ruled a large portion of Europe at the time.

I can't think of any course of action more ill advised than gassing Jews in Israel.

JonnyG: He's no different than a Western politician. He just doesn't sugar coat it. Besides, Romney IS evading taxes.


Good points. I think Obama should have Romney arrested, perhaps for the whole pretending to be at Bain after he retired stuff. Or for tax evasion. Let's see how that works out for Obama here in the good ol' US of A.

Putin had Khodorkovsky arrested because he was about to lose an election to him. That is the only reason.

If they start using WMD's... Obama pretty much has to invade at that point. Nobody wants that.

Imagine if Obama was losing to Mitt Romney in the polls and so Obama decided to make up bogus charges of tax evasion against Mitt Romney. Then, using a kangaroo court, Obama had Mitt Romney convicted of those charges and sent to a labor camp in siber-, er, Alaska for 10+ years.

Because that is exactly what Vladimir Putin did to Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Vladimir Putin is not a good guy. You should hate him and you should feel justified hating him.

He's more like Russia's Andrew Jackson, really. Although all of their effective leaders were like Andrew Jackson.

"lying rich piece of shiat". You've described Tsar Vladimir perfectly.

The only reason the Russians are against Syria using gas is that if they do, it's all over and Russia's lost a big customer for their attack helicopters and fighter jets. Putin would rather Assad just keep using the Russian supplied helicopters and jets against the Syrian populace so Vlad can keep selling him bombs and rockets.

I'm guessing the conversation went something like this;

Bashar: I'm thinking of gassing the people that refuse to bow down to me.

Putin: If you do that you'll enrage the West enough to bomb the crap out of your cities and hunt you and your family down with drones.

Bashar: Eh, on second thought I don't think I'll gas the people that refuse to bow down to me.

this is horrible but hear me out. i kinda wish the syrians would use gas. then it would be unpalatable for anyone to support them, and might induce nato to actually do something. and lets face it. many of the rebels are going to die anyway, gas or not.

That's the only intelligent thing Putin could do. It becomes very hard for Russia to block UN action on Syria if chemical weapons are being used. By keeping the things off the table, there's still a chance for Assad to win the civil war and keep Syria in Russia's weakening sphere of Middle Eastern influence. If the rebels win, and Obama launches Operation Ajax 2 in his second term, Russia is back to where they started when the Tsarists were trying to move themselves south in the 19th century. In short we're back on the winning side of the Great Game, and it's scaring the hell out of Putin.

Forgive me for choosing this point in time to follow Winston Wolf's sage advice. Maybe if Russia would stop propping up Syria, Assad wouldn't be in the position to gas his fellow citizens.

I wouldn't say I *hate* the man - he is just surrounded by propaganda, just like every other politician in the known world. it just depends on who's propaganda you're sold on. If you're not buying, stay neutral.
