U.S. Proposes New Military Partnership With Russia In Syria

Josh Rogin, Washington Post: Obama proposes new military partnership with Russia in Syria

The Obama administration has proposed a new agreement on Syria to the Russian government that would deepen military cooperation between the two countries against some terrorists in exchange for Russia getting the Assad regime to stop bombing U.S.-supported rebels.

The United States transmitted the text of the proposed agreement to the Russian government on Monday after weeks of negotiations and internal Obama administration deliberations, an administration official told me. The crux of the deal is a U.S. promise to join forces with the Russian air force to share targeting and coordinate an expanded bombing campaign against Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, which is primarily fighting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them. They've proven time and time again that all they are doing is looking for an angle to exploit to hurt Russia and Syria more. There can't be deals between lions and hyenas.

Obama is simply trying to look relevant.

His legacy is slipping from his grasp before his eyes.

His Legacy is secure. Take a drive through Detroit and look at the burned out buildings alongside graffiti praising the man as some kind of MLK part II.

Barack Obama is the poster boy of false hope.

False hope and faux change.

What a wasted mandate.
