Putin Tells Netanyahu to Take a Chill Pill on Syria 'Gas Attack'

Please. Do it for everyone

Vladimir Putin has asked Israel's Prime Minister to take a Valium and stop hyperventilating about how the "international community" needs to march into Syria and decapitate Assad.

Benjamin Netanyahu says that he is very, very distressed by photographs he saw of dead Syrian children:

Valium. You need it.

“When I saw pictures of babies suffocating from a chemical attack in Syria, I was shocked and outraged,” Netanyahu said at a state memorial ceremony for the late Israeli President Chaim Herzog at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. “There’s no, none, no excuse whatsoever for the deliberate attacks on civilians and on children, especially with cruel and outlawed chemical weapons.”

Yes, Netanyahu has a great track record when it comes to being shocked and outraged about brown Muslim kids getting killed. This is beyond question. 

Putin didn't buy it though, for some odd reason. RT reports:

Russian President Vladimir Putin told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a telephone conversation that it was unacceptable to make “groundless” accusations concerning the alleged chemical weapons incident that took place in Syria earlier this week.

Of course, if Israel is so insistent on Syria being deprived of the chemical weapons it doesn't have, Netanyahu could always send in the jets to bomb "Hezbollah" again. Probably suicidal, but "you only live once".

Let's return to Netanyahu for a moment:

“I call on the international community to fulfill its obligation from 2013 to fully and finally remove these horrible weapons from Syria,” he continued.

Funny he should mention it. A valued RI reader, George Zah, just sent us this:

You made Putin angry, and everyone knows you're lying: Your move, Netanyahu.
