UN Agreement Reached on Syria; Obama Warhawks Defeated on Every Count
Thursday September 26, 2013
Secretary of State John Kerry as recently as last week "insisted" that any UN resolution dealing with Syrian chemical disarmament must be filed under Chapter 7 of the UN charter, which provides for the use of force if the agreement is not satisfactorily implemented. Russia, which had been tricked by the Obama administration over its Chapter 7 demands on Libya that ended in a disastrous war, refused to fall again for the ruse. Even as Kerry lied last week to the US media that Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov had agreed to a Chapter 7 resolution, the Russians denied Kerry's claims. Now we see that Chapter 7 is dead in the water.
