Obama Sweden Stop Offers Moscow Alternative

President Barack Obama arrived in Sweden today on a visit prompted by his falling out with Russia that now is overshadowed by U.S. moves to strike militarily at Syria.

Air Force One touched down in Stockholm mid-morning local time, after the president campaigned yesterday for congressional authorization to use force in response to Syria’s attack on civilians with sarin gas. The stop gives Obama a chance to focus on economics before a summit with other leaders of the Group of 20 nations, where Syria also will dominate the discussions.
