(CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is holding off on taking steps toward a first vote on whether to authorize a military strike against Syria over alleged chemical weapons use. The decision follows Russia's proposal that Syria relinquish its chemical weapons stockpiles to international control.
An aide said that the Russia proposal is serious and fluid enough that members do not want to lock themselves into a position on Syria just yet. An initial Senate vote on the issue had been expected on Wednesday.
The entire world is laughing at right wingnuts.
I'm glad for the delay in voting. If the Senate has any sense at all, they'll vote to authorise a military strike on Syria, keeping pressure on Putin & Assad to surrender the CW to international control (and ultimate destruction).
Threats of war do have a way of focusing attention on other solutions, don't they?
OH pleeeezzzz. He delayed the vote because it was not going his way. after his nauseating
discourse on national tv today. how could anyone believe him. Syria will be the third sovereign state Obama has dismantled for the New World Order Conspirators.
This is a solution I can support. Diplomacy works.
Let's pray this actually happens, that Syria does hand over ALL its chemical weapons to the International control, and later destroyed .. for the good of all mankind.
