Putin warns West on Syria action
The Associated Press
sia President Vladimir
Putin warned the West
against taking one-sided
action in Syria but also said
Russia "doesn't exclude"
supporting a U.N. resolu-
tion on punitive military
strikes if it is proved that
Damascus used poison gas
on its own people.
In a wide-ranging inter-
view with The Associated
Press and Russia's state
Channel 1 television, Putin
said Moscow has provided
some components of the
S-300 air defense missile
system to Syria but has fro-
zen further shipments. He
suggested that Russia may
sell the potent missile sys-
tems elsewhere if Western
nations attack Syria with-,
out U.N. Security Council
The interview late Tues-
day night at Putin's coun-
try residence outside the
Russian capital was the
only one he granted prior
to the summit of G-20 na-
tions in St. Petersburg,
which opens *today. The
summit was supposed to
concentrate on the global
economy but now looks
likely to be dominated by
the international crisis
over allegations that the
Syrian government used
chemical weapons in the
country's civil war.*
Putin said he felt sorry
that President Barack
Obama canceled a one-
on-one meeting in Mos-
cow that was supposed to
have happened before the
summit. But he expressed
hope that the two would
have serious discussions
about Syria and other is-
sues in St Petersburg."
"We work,, we' argue
about some issues. We are
human. Sometimes one of
us gets vexed. But I would
like to repeat once again
that global mutual inter-
ests form a good basis'for
Russian President Vladimir Putin gestures while speaking to John Daniszewski, the Associated
Press's Senior Managing Editor for International News, during an AP interview at Putin's
Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow, Russia, on Tuesday.

have sparred over Syria,

'fair, Russia's treatment of
its opposition and -the di-
minishing scope in Russia
for civil society groups that

time when it was holding
sway against the rebels.
"From our viewpoint, it.
seems absolutely absurd
that the armed forces -
the regular armed forces,
which are on the' offen-
sive today and. in some
areas have encircled the
:so-called rebels and are
finishing them off that
in these conditions they
would start using forbid-
den chemical weapons
while realizing quite well
that it could serve as a pre-
text for applying sanctions
against them, including
the use of force," he said.
The Obama administra-
tion says 1 ,429 people died
in theAug. 21 attack in a Da-
mascus suburb. Casualty
estimates by other groups
are far lower, and Assad's
government blames the
episode on rebels trying to
overthrow him. A U.N. in-
spection team is awaiting

Dear Annie: I recently broke up
vith a 70-year-old man who could not
stop ogling women and making sexually
inappropriate remarks to them. I talked
to, hym about it many times and clearly
sa'tied that this is emotional cheating and
he should stop or we'd be finished. He
didn't changeiand it escalated to ogling
strangers on elevators'and women at V:,
. parties. It:was creepy. I was humiliated
and embarrassed. After I broke up with
' him, I found out that he made sexually
inappropriate remarks to some very
young girls, saying he wanted to see ,
them'naked. I suggested'therapy. He'
,said all men do this and told me to
relax. ;* ,, . ... .-L

predator and probably a sex addict. He |.

Super Team or super stupid?
That is the question Gene'Haas,
the founder of Stewart-Haas
Racing, flexed his alpha-dog
muscles last week arid hired Kurt
Busch to drive a fourth NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series car in 2014.
The team's co-owner, Tony
Stewart, who willed this team
into a winner, was not told in
advance of Haas' hire and at first
was angered by the unilateral
Move. Apparently, all is well after
.Haas explained himself to Stew-
art, who is sideliriedfrom driving
duty with a broken leg.
One gets the sense.that Haas,
who has poured millions of dol-
lars into this operation, wanted
to have his identity emerge from
the team, where the perception
is Stewart calls all the shots.
Hiring Busch sure feels like a
not-so-fast-Tony moment in the

and the Budweiser sponsor-
ship money. Danica Patrick has
GoDaddy onboard for several
more seasons,and Stewart has
a variety of cash backers for his
No. 14 Chevy.
Now the team is scrambling
to make room for Busch, which
could have negative implications
if not handled with kid gloves.
Busch's primary sponsor will be
"It all happened pretty uick as
everybody knows," Patrick said.
Stewart, Harvick and Busch
represent three ultra-uber racing
personalities, and,.if they don't
mix it could be problematic.
Racing isn't just about a driver
going fast. It's about how people
work together as a team; how
driver, crew chief and owner
communicate. It's about team

taking the wheel of the Cup
SSeries No. 42 Earnhardt Ganassi
Racing Chevy from Juan Pablo
Montoya. "Kyle was our first
choice," car owner Chip Ganassi
said. "We did not offer any deals
to any other drivers. We talked
to other drivers. We're thrilled to
have Kyle. Nothing he has done
makes us feel he cannot move to
the Sprint Cup Series."
There was a rumor floating
around that ESPN and TNT were
shopping their 2014 NASCAR
television contracts to NBC and
Fox. NBC and Fox will be NAS-
CAR's only.broadcasters in 2015.
ESPN has been through this
painful, lame-duck experience
before and it's no fun for anyone
well, except NBC. NASOAR
Sell Disappointment: Jimmie
Don't be surprised if: It's now
or never for Keselowski, the de-
fending Cup Series champion.
A win gets the "Kez" in.
It really was labor, wasn't it?
Labor Day Weekend is meant to
be a labor of love for one and all, but
good grief ... Jeff Gordon and Carl Ed-
wards are mad at each other, Chase
Elliott and Ty Dillon (and Richard
SChildress) were mad after the truck
race, Brad Keselowski's Cup defense
is on life support, and Jimmie Johnson
has slipped the rail.
Will things get better soon?
This week at Richmond is when
dreams officially die. Entire cam-,
paigns (competitive and marketing)
are blown out of the water when
teams miss the Chase. So. you tell me
how much fun it'll be.
Is Kyle Larson ready for the big
There are those who like to sound
wise and seasoned by suggesting
Larson heeds more time in the Na-
tionwide Series before going full time
in NASCAR's biggest league. Larson
may or may not hit the ground run-
ning next year, but if he doesn't, it's
not because, he needs another year
in Triple-A ball. Jimmie Johnson and
Tony Stewart are two guys who didn't
light it up in the old Busch Series, yet
seemed to adjust pretty well, in case
you didn't notice.
