Strange timing of the Syrian peace deal with the US election, just as Trump was winning over Clinton, suddenly, Kerry and Lavrov agreed on a ceasefire in Syria, with Russia allowing the "moderate rebels" to be protected by treaty from eviction by the government of Syria (in effect abrogating the sovereignty of the Syrian government without delcaring that Assad is no longer in charge), which are major concessions by Lavrov and Putin, that contradicted their longstanding position that only the Syrian government has the right to decide what is done in Syria.
Kerry got a very good deal, and Lavrov got, well Pizza.
Well, Assad agreed to the terms of the ceasefire. What else can he do? At least it preserves the impression that he has not lost the authority of his post and the legitimacy of his government. It was a temporary ceasefire to allow the US and Russia to concentrate on getting rid of the remnants of the ISIS who can be expected to simply meld into the moderate opposition in Aleppo, and then, there will be a showdown afterwards between Aleppo and Damascus. This may come sooner than later, since the ISIS will simply blend into the population. This may happen just before the November 8 election, and coincidentally show Obama to be a strong leader that will reflect on Clinton as well. And Trump's claim of wanting to unite with Russia to defeat ISIS would have been accomplished by Obama before even the election, depriving him of any platform to stand on, except agree that Obama did the right thing. In this sense, Trump is right, that Putin is a smart adversary. And Putin is right that Trump is a smart adversary. Therefore, Putin made the move before Trump could get elected. Doesn't this make sense?
The Plot to NUKE America and Blame Russia SUM OF ALL FEARS
Just like they made a movie about the JFK assassination, they will make a movie about this someday. Trump will forever be a hero and his name will be up there with George Washington, Ben Franklin, Lincoln, and other patriots. Trump is a hero.
