GENEVA — The United States and Russia agreed Saturday on an outline for the identification and seizure of Syrian chemical weapons and said Syria must turn over an accounting of its arsenal within a week.
The agreement will be backed by a U.N. Security Council resolution that could allow for sanctions or other consequences if Syria fails to comply, Secretary of State John F. Kerry said.
Kerry said that the first international inspection of Syrian chemical weapons will take place by November, with destruction to begin next year.
This will be played up by the hack probamagandists as a huge victory for The Deal Leader.
Instead, it will actually turn out to be a way to make this whole issue go away into a fog of negotiations and diplo-speak buried in obscure committees at the United Nations.
