No Plan B on Syria

"The Russian-American deal to destroy Syria's chemical weapons arsenal gives President Obama some breathing space after a politically damaging few weeks. But the list of things that could still go wrong is extensive and daunting," the New York Times reports.

"The two sides could deadlock over the text of a United Nations Security Council resolution codifying the agreement. Syria could insist on deal-breaking conditions or fail to turn over a complete accounting of its weapons within a week, as mandated. International inspectors could be obstructed on the ground or chemical stocks could be hidden from them."

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that Secretary of State John Kerry insisted that a deal to rid Syria of chemical weapons will be enforced by the United Nations.
