Howard Stern made a joke about the recent Vienna meeting on his radio show. He said that Putin supposedly whispered to this lady. "Me Vladimir. Nuland, you my woman now."
In spite of the obvious surrender of the US in Vienna over the issue of regime change in Syria, the Obama Administration continues to insist that the Russians are accepting defeat on the ground and in the air in the war against the US coalition of FSA phonies and jihadi groups like Nusra and jaish al-fath.
In fact the R+6 forces are making very good progress. This is something that is clear to anyone who actually has real military expertise.
McGurk from State told the "Mornin' Joe" crew today that we (the US) are succeeding in our strategy of Assad removal prior to a negotiated peace.
McGurk stressed the point that there is no place in a future Syria for President Assad. He said this was true because Assad would be unacceptable to the Syrian people.
Well, pilgrims, as I wrote here a while back, why not test that assertion?
If there is an internationally supervised election there in a year or two, let him run and then we can know how acceptable or unacceptable he is to the Syrian people. pl
