Russia to Lobby Congress to Vote Against Obama's Syria Strike

Yes, Vlad Putin wants to send a delegation to lobby against Obama's planned Syrian action that he can't decide whether he is going to go through with or not:

Russian President Vladimir Putin hopes to send Russian lawmakers to lobby Congress against a strike against Syria. According to a report by the Interfax news agency,

Putin has signaled his support for a proposal made by two Russian lawmakers to send a delegation to Washington. 

The initiative, championed by Russian legislators Valentina Matvienko and Sergei Naryshkin, still requires formal approval by the country's Foreign Ministry — although an informal group of Russian lawmakers may decide to travel on their own.
Our relationship with Russia worked best when they knew we were superior to them and Putin didn't think he could push us around. Putin is a relic of the former Soviet Union which killed 20 million-plus of its citizens in pursuit of its ideology, communism. It's a country and ideology we put down 20 years ago only to have Clinton and now Barack the Terrible piss our efforts at getting rid of the Soviet threat away. Now Barry has created the Russian threat by trying to "reset" U.S./Russian relations (like they needed resetting). Remember this:
 Hillary and Barry's U.S./Russian relations red reset button. Oddly, U.S./Russian relations have been going downhill ever since -- thanks to Barry's overwhelming show of weakness.
