    Until the Saudi's leaned on Russia hard enough, and Russia leaned on Syria hard enough, and the threat of strikes by the US made all the above focus their minds on the solution.

    •  russia has its own reasons (0+ / 0-)

      for wanting the weapons secured. i don't think the threat of military was a huge factor. i do think russia knew the politics wasn't there for strikes. i think it was just a serendipitous moment, for everyone. history often is made by such.
