Syria: Opposition conference collapses!!

Continuing on from yesterday's post.  Back to Syria: War games and Ukraine connections
As mentioned there, the the figurehead for the Muslim brotherhood was reselected by the NATO backers.. no surprise.

"Ghalioun, 67, who will serve another three-month term, has been criticised by some opposition figures for failing to unify the SNC and forge close ties to dissidents inside Syria. He has also been accused of providing a liberal veneer to what is a widely Islamist, albeit factionalised, opposition."

Interesting follow up: Syria opposition conference collapses

That is very different then "splintered"
Indeed, splinter and collapse are two very different descriptions.....

Plans for an Arab League-sponsored conference to unite Syria’s opposition collapsed on Tuesday as international envoys found themselves the only participants in a meeting that the main opposition parties decided to boycott.

The Cairo meeting was billed as a significant effort to bring the disparate opposition groups together as a first step towards a dialogue with the regime on a political transition

The Arab League issued a statement on Tuesday saying the meeting had been postponed. A prominent dissident resigned from the Syrian National Council on Tuesday, Reuters reported, dealing another blow to the opposition organisation that has seen several senior figures quit in the last few months.

The resignation of Fawaz Tello, a  prominent dissident resigned from the Syrian National Council on Tuesday.

 A shaky ceasefire negotiated by Mr Annan has reduced the level of violence and the shelling of towns by government forces, but brutal repression has continued  as have attacks on regime targets by an increasingly militarised opposition.
  Following the above sentence along to the reasonable conclusion that if levels of violence and shelling have been reduced by government forces.... but repression and attacks on government targets have continued ...actually become more deadly.  Therefore the brutal repression  is coming from the militarized opposition. Unsurprising.  The opposition was always militarized. The opposition was also the source of the most heinous and brutal repression.


On Tuesday, a convoy of four cars was struck by an improvised explosive device near the city of Hama, according to UN spokesman Ahmad Fawzi.
Moon of Alabama had covered that news: The opposition has been using IED's all along.
There is not much of a reason to think it was not them who attacked near the UN convoy.


The boycott of the Cairo conference reflects chronic disunity among the opposition

Not only do we have a collapse, we had a dam boycott!

The General Council for the Syrian Revolution, a smaller opposition group, meanwhile decided to stay away from the meeting because it saw it as an attempt to bring all other dissident organisations under the SNC’s wing. 
The position of the Syrian National Council, the main opposition grouping, (created by the West/NATO) all along has been that it opposes talks that do not involve Mr Assad stepping down.

  1. It's good to hear that the 'opposition' are in in disarray.


    Are the UN Observers playing games? Heaven forfend. Three separate incidents here:

    1st, a non-Syrian, possibly French, guy appears from nowhere in a UN car- What kind of “games” are played by UN Observers?

    2nd, several 'opposition types' tag along with UN- UN Observers Smuggling Terrorists in their Vehicles to Gather Intel about the Syrian Army

    3rd, yesterdays pic of Al-Qaeda Rebel Working with UN Observers!

  2. "Ghalioun, 67, who will serve another three-month term, has been criticised by some opposition figures for failing to unify the SNC and forge close ties to dissidents inside Syria.

    This says it all, Penny. Ghalioun maybe the figurehead for the Islamist opposition (as if they are the problem) but it becomes obvious that the whole so-called Syrian Opposition is a figurehead for the for the NATO armed and manned invasion. Because while the "Syrian Opposition" can't decide on the tea and coffee, the armed incursion is steaming right along, thank you.

    It then becomes obvious to even Blind Freddie that these two bodies are completely disconnected. By the evidence before us, the SNC and all the other 'splinters' are just so much window dressing. And many of them, it would seem, are fully aware of that. Hence all the divisions. Keep it up you scoundrels.

  3. Washington Post says US coordinating terrorist insurgents in syria:
    And today there was this in the Washington Post:

    Syrian rebels battling the regime of President Bashar al-Assad have begun receiving significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, an effort paid for by Persian Gulf nations and coordinated in part by the United States, according to opposition activists and U.S. and foreign officials.
