Meanwhile, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday that Russia is now working with Syria to prepare a detailed plan of action, which will be presented shortly.
Lavrov said that Russia will then be ready to finalize the plan together with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. [...]
Oh, and by the way...
Meanwhile, Vlad Putin looks "Big Russian Bear" brilliant and Obama looks ..... well, like Obama.
