Arab Spring's Final Post Mortem

Remember the "Arab Spring" that was embraced by so many opponents of the US empire as a spontaneous movement in opposition to the hegemonic regional aspirations of the US, Israel, and the dictatorial Gulf Arab states? The Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions were to set the example for the rest of the region and send a message to the hegemons: no more external manipulation of domestic political process and movements, no more propping up of dictators, no more boot on the neck of the Palestinian struggle for a non-apartheid existence.

US and Russia Reach Agreement on Syria Weapons -- Can The US Stop Arming the Jihadists Now?

The US and Russia yesterday reached what looks to be a solid agreement on how to proceed with the dismantling of the chemical weapons stores of the Syrian government as well as destruction of Syria's production capabilities. Syria agreed to the Russian-proposed deal (with a little inspiration from US Secretary of State John Kerry) with the understanding that giving up its chemical weapons would avert a US military attack.

The agreement seems full enough of ambiguities regarding the consequences of less than full Syrian compliance to allow the US government some face-saving saber rattling about retaining the option to strike unilaterally, while being vague enough in defining what exactly constitutes non-compliance to make difficult a clear cut case for a UN Chapter 7 use of force resolution.
