  •  Kerry's statement was a rebuff to Putin (1+ / 0-)

    As I said earlier, I think it's likely that Kerry was appearing to be making an offhand comment because it was the best way to put Putin's private responses for the idea into the public sphere.  He was issuing a challenge and, unless Putin is able to meet that challenge, makes any Russian response to a strike completely Russia's fault.  We, after all, tried to avert that strike.  I think the level of diplomacy this team is showing is astounding and brilliant.
