BEIRUT – A U.N.-brokered peace deal for Syria appeared to collapse
Sunday as the government made a new demand that its opponents provide
guarantees" to lay down their weapons before regime forces withdraw from
cities, a call swiftly rejected by the country's main rebel group.
The deal, brokered by U.N. and Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, was due to
take effect on Tuesday, paving the way for negotiations to end the
year-old crisis, which the U.N. estimates has killed 9,000 people.
Annan said last week that Syrian President Bashar Assad had accepted the
plan and its call for government forces to pull back from urban
centers. But on Sunday Syria's Foreign Ministry spokesman,
Jihad Makdessi, placed a new condition -- that the opposition agree in
writing "to halt
violence with all its forms and their readiness to lay down weapons."
What does this scenario remind you of??
Sounds to me the Syrian Rebels look like bunch of terrorists then, since Assad and his forces were willing to stand down and now apparently it seems the rebels aren't willing to do so.
I am not surprised by at this at all, after all America is arming the rebels and i am sure the CFR sellout Sen John McCain would love nothing more then to see another Intervention in the Med East.
And Why? anything to stop Iran and its imaginary nukes and making Iran look like another Iraq i cant believe some people aren't seeing the similarities.
I am sorry to say this but Good for Assad. If those Rebel,terrorists don't like to agree in writing, then tanks and bullets it is.
It Maybe harsh but in the end Syria will look like the current collapsing Libya.
