    and maybe worth a try. But what I see is the Syrian leader just manipulating any diplomatic effort to his advantage. The man is untrustworthy. Hell, I bet he would throw Putin under the bus if he had to.

      I think the bigger question is whether Putin is willing to throw him under the bus, and under what conditions.

      If there is diplomacy possible here, I suspect it has to go through Russia. I don't know that it's possible at this point. It's not like it hasn't been tried. But I'm not sure whether all options there are exhausted yet.
