Putin and Obama want to bring Assad and the Syrian Rebels to the table for talks. This in itself is not such a big deal. These two have agreed to get others to the table but no talking gets done. John Kerry was in Russia to talk with Putin and got him to agree to push for these talks. With Israel bombing Syrian Ammunition Depots, Washington and Moscow will hopefully now accept that if something isn't done we could have major problems.
The accusation that Syria is using Chemical Warfare against its own people wasn't enough to bring us to the table, but you get Israel involved and things get done. I hope that we can finally bring peace to the region.
