    Plus, Russia has brought itself into the discussion as well and put themselves in a position where they might lose face. Maybe the principles in this civil war can eventually back off the fighting.

    I think there's a bigger picture here that affects the discussion -- the jihadis. Their rise among the rebels has likely alarmed all sides in this and I think finding a way to isolate them is in everyone's interest.

    The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

      which is exactly what it wants.  Russia wants to stop the neocon agenda and Putin has made a nice move here.   I still can't figure out if Obama was also gaming to stop the neocons or being manipulated by them, but it's better to have Russia in the mix diplomatically than to let the zealots get us bungled into a world war.
