Freethinker left an interesting video here and I urge all to listen to it.
You have an opportunity to hear the Syrian position regarding the Anan plan and UN abuse.
You don't have to sit in front of the screen to watch, just listen!
Bashar Al Jaafari Speaks of His Treatment at UN
Not just his treatment, by extension, the abuse heaped on Syria as a nation and it's people.
We want to hear the Syrian side, there it is. Listen.
Also an interesting read was left by Egoigwe:
The SECOND “FRIENDS” OF SYRIA CONFERENCE IN ISTANBUL: The Syrian DEBACLE
For their part, the Arab League Secretary General and his UN counterpart appointed Kofi Annan as joint special envoy to negotiate a crisis exit. He put forward a six-point plan, which is a slightly amended version of the Russian proposal to the League.
He obtained the agreement of President al-Assad on condition that the plan’s provisions are not subverted and used to infiltrate new weapons and fighters.
You can read the article entirely, I included the above section so that it is clear. The request by Assad for written assurances is neither outrageous Nor out of line with the agreement. It was part and parcel of the Annan plan. The main stream media is or should be fully aware of that.
That said the media would rather engage in terrorism.
Two links from SANA I found interesting:
Russian Foreign Ministry: UN Monitoring Mission to Syria Has to Include Representatives of States Accepted by Syria
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilvo said that the UN monitoring mission to Syria has to include representatives of countries accepted by Syria.
"UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and his Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan are still studying the nature of sides that could participate in the formula of the international mission," Gatilov added in a statement he made to Russia Today TV.
On the possibility of participating representatives from Russia in the international mission that would monitor the cease- fire, Gatilov said that the UN didn't discuss this issue with Russia, adding that this matter is very sensitive.
If you have been hanging around here for a while, you may recall me wondering aloud if this might happen. Russian peacekeepers in Syria? Perhaps Chinese peacekeepers?
The Syrian Human Rights Network (SHRN) said that the explicit support for armed terrorist groups which was announced by some countries such as Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar hinders the mission of UN Envoy Kofi Annan and thus hinders international resolution on Syria.
In a statement issued on Sunday, the SHRN said that this support constitutes blatant international hypocrisy and an attempt to assume control of international decision, stressing that the US hegemony over international resolutions have stripped them of their credibility, making them part of double-standards policies and consecrating unipolar policy.
The statement stressed that guarantees of withdrawing armed aspects must be presented to the Syrian government before such guarantees are asked of it, as ending violence is achieved by ending its causes.
The SHRN said that the Syrian Army and law-enforcement forces are present in cities to protect civilians from terrorism, violence and violations carried out by armed groups, and that locals often demanded that the army enter their towns and remain there to protect them.
Update begins here:
Who the hell is Turkey to declare this?( OH yes, mouthpiece for NATO and water carrier for the US and Israel, I forgot....)
Turkey declares UN plan dead
Turkey: Syria deadline void; border clashes kill 3
Was it the Syrian Troops?
Maybe it was and maybe it wasn't?
This is not the first time that bullets have flown across Lebanon's or Turkey's borders, so why the huffing and puffing from Turkey?
Easy enough, the West wants blood.
It wants death, mayhem, regime change and a tyrannical government in place.
One that will make all interested players happy.
Including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the US, Britain, France and of course- Israel!
Thanks to hans who left this in the comments: The campaign for the May 7 legislative elections began this weekend in the country, where more than 14 million citizens are eligible to vote. read the rest rest of article Prensa Latina English This is why there is a sudden rush to get the terrorists in Syria so that the elections can be disrupted. Imagine that an election, Qatar, Saudi are probably quivering in their boots!
That's right elections in early May, less then one month away.
The psychopaths have to oppress ordinary Syrians. I find myself utterly disgusted today.
