A fortuitous stumble

Hey look a possible stumbled into compromise that avoids us bombing someone...is that even possible anymore?
White House officials say they will “take a hard look” at a Russian offer to push Syria to give up its vast chemical weapons arsenal, a late and unexpected proposal that could provide President Obama a way to avoid a bruising defeat in Congress over use of force.
Yeah, the saving grace is no longer "avoid killing people", it's "avoid a bruising" political defeat. Because that's the important thing in the equation I guess. [cross-posted at Firedoglake]
