Russia, US war of words on Syrian crisis, is the most important in International Press

USA Today focused on the debate over whether U.S. lawmakers will give President Obama authorization to launch a military strike against Syria or not..

“the Democratic senator who was among the 10 members of the Senate Foreign Relations committee to vote on Wednesday in favor of giving the president a use-of-force authorization in Syria — said he has heard from some of the president’s friends and supporters who don’t agree with Obama’s call for a punitive military strike against Bashar Al-Assad’s regime “said by USA Today.

The Washington times referred to Obama’s efforts to enlist more global partners for a U.S. military strike against Syria, President Obama on Wednesday found himself in a fresh debate over whether he was backing away from his own “red line” on the use of chemical weapons by the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

“President Obama blurred his own “red line” on Syria’s chemical weapons, saying the ultimatum belonged to the world. On the international stage, Iran indicated that it might unleash Hezbollah or possibly kidnap Americans if the president ordered military strikes on Syria.

After strongly criticizing the foreign policy of President George W. Bush, Mr. Obama suddenly finds himself in a position similar to that of his predecessor, potentially leading a largely isolated U.S., minus many of its key allies and against the will of other countries and of the United Nations, into armed conflict in the Middle East” declared by The Washington Times.

The Washington Post highlighted the issue of Syria and the relation between united state and Russia on Syria crisis confirming that Western governments have long known that Russia is providing crucial backing for the government of President Bashar al-Assad, including many of the heavy weapons used to battle opposition forces. But Western intelligence officials and independent experts say a substantial portion of the aid appears to be arriving in commercial ships, prompting analysts to look closely at this Cold War-era military port and its long history of arming Russian allies and some of the world’s most repressive regimes.
