Russia has been a firm friend to President Bashar al-Assad even as the civil with in Syria goes on and on and on. However, new reports that Assad might employ chemical weapons have even frightened the Russian government. US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta warned; “as the opposition advances, in particular in Damascus that regime might very well consider use of chemical weapons.”
US Secretary of State Clinton has met with Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov in an attempt to obtain a joint alliance to prevent introduction of chemical weapons into the fighting. They discussed ways in which their nations could prevent this disaster from occurring. Perhaps, the time is rapidly approaching when Russia offers Assad a nice dacha near Moscow and plenty of spending money if he only would get the hell out of Syria.
Let’s face it, President Assad, the writing is already on the wall.
