Well this was breaking when posted some more info coming out.
The league has called for sanctions against Syria as the organisation held an emergency meeting to address the rising civilian death toll.
The 22-nation body has called on the country's army to stop its involvement in the killing of civilians, said Qatar's PM, and the group has
reportedly invited the opposition to transition talks.
Foreign ministers from the league convened in Cairo amid calls for the regime to be suspended for its continuing clampdown on
SKY news reported on TV that the Arab League has invited opposition parties to meet for "Transition Talks" and to cease killing civilians.
So the writing is then on the wall for Bashar.
But he knows that as the following shows:
On another note, the family members of Assad regime officials have been fleeing the country as over a hundred security, army, and government cars
are seen daily at the Aleppo International Airport, with mostly women and children accompanying massive loads of luggage. According to airport
employees, most of the passports are Lattakia issued, and most of the flights are fully booked departing to Malaysia, Iran, UAE, China, Ghana, and
He wont go though I doubt very much.
Maybe an UN resolution within 14 days and NATO within?
Well many of you, and probably Bashar think the UN will be veto'd by Russia and/or China, and probably so.
However as recent events have shown NATO is now the Wests "stick" rather than the security council, and as the days old testimony to congress by
Jeffrey D. Feltman ssistant Secretary, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs
Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South and Central Asian Affairs said on November the 9th the long game plan is
very well known if hidden in the political niceties:
But if Russia and China cynically continue to stand in the way of international efforts to end the violence in Syria, the United States and other
allies of the Syrian people will consider other steps to ensure the Syrian people are protected. The UN is one important channel but not the only
Well that's pretty clear if just one paragraph of the testimony lol and further:
US Dept of State - US Policy on Syria
Nevertheless, we will continue our efforts to convince Russia, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa to change their positions regarding
sanctions against Syria, and we will encourage our Arab allies and the Syrian opposition to aggressively engage with those countries as well.
We all know what that means really so its just now a matter of time.
This news will get into Syria and the uprisings more, his crackdowns more in response but isolated, but will he be so by Russia? Iran? China even?
This is an very old and well entrenched cold war line there are still strong links with Russia, as said I feel this could be very dangerous compared
to recent "transitions" for many reasons.
I certainly will be watching this closely.
