First Assad denied having chemical weapons. Chemical weapons were used. Then he denied using them. Now he has chemical weapons after they have been used, and is willing to hand them over.
Where has Assad denied having chemical weapons?

I don't disagree with any of the points you have made, and I don't trust Putin.
Russia, Assad’s biggest international backer, championed the path forward in the hope of preventing the instability that might arise from a broader, Iraq-like conflict involving the United States. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia is now working with Syria to prepare a detailed plan of action, which will be presented shortly. Lavrov said that Russia will then be ready to finalize the plan together with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

It's would be great if all countries destroyed weapons of mass destruction, and I would fully support that. This just isn't going to happen and its not really any kind of soloution for today's world. There's so much propaganda being flung from every keyboard warrior around the world. If were looking at verifiable facts. I just don't understand why people are so willing to ignore verifiable facts and support a dictator like Assad with such veracity.
I would like to take this time to thank the President of Russia for covering this one .

Of course it is not a western democracy, but that is not our problem.
