Syrian rebels refuse to give 'written guarantees' to Assad regime
Published April 08, 2012 | Associated Press

The U.N. tried, the Government changed the rules, the rebels say screw this.

Sounding more and more familiar by the day.

They will do anything to keep the fight going.

Sound familiar ?



BEIRUT – A U.N.-brokered peace deal for Syria appeared to collapse Sunday as the government made a new demand that its opponents provide "written 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 country's 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. [color=cyan]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."



Why didn't they say that right away ?



What does this scenario remind you of ??

Well good for Assad. I am glad to see he isn't going to just lay down and allow himself to be culled like Ghaddafi and Saddam. Geeze... The UN actually offered this with a straight face and expected Syria to not only agree but follow though?? Anyone else see how totally absurd this is? I mean OVER THE TOP absurd!

Look... Israel has had UN monitors of one flavor or another on their international borders with the Sinai Desert and Lebanon for a long long time. Those UN people are all very very busy as making sure ALL agreements are met, held to and no one..not even a lone Jihadi..violates them. Right? Not even a stray AK-47 passes into Southern Lebanon while the UN is on the job! Oh No Sir!!


Now the absurdity of this situation is that Assad's father and Assad himself have been among the TOP people n that whole part of the world for CIRCUMVENTING and running over the top of the UN blue helmets while arming up Hezbollah and Hamas. Now.....in an Irony they obviously lost entirely...they're asking some of the largest UN Peacekeeper violators and experts to sign this paper, agree to everything the UN is demanding..and trust the UN can control the cities after Syrian authority leaves.

YEAH.. RIGHT. Gee... If Assad wasn't the one on the pointy end, I'm sure he'd fall over laughing at the situation. I'd have thought him a dupe or mentally ill if he HAD agreed to and kept these terms. It's suicide and of ALL people..HE knows that more than most.

Good for Assad. If those CIA and Mossad terrorists don't like to agree in writing, then tanks and bullets it is.

Quite clearly this demand was intended to kill the ceasfire plan. Who in their right mind would lay down arms for a ceasefire dead (note: this is not a peace deal). Of course the opposition entity would have rejected this last minute request, which further adds to the absurdity as they no longer have time to negotiate on this point. This may signify the road of no return, as the government clearly is not committed to any reduction of their soveriegn powers.

The Syrian Rebels have made it very clear for the last six months.

There will be no cease fire or peace until Assad steps down and someone (who's not tied to Assad) is placed into power.

The Rebels have been saying this all along and no one is listening. Even though there's supposed to be an election in May, they all think it's rigged as long as Assad has ANY control in the country WHATSOEVER!

Almost makes you wonder when the U.N. is going to ask for our sovereignty and wether not our government will accept to surrender to the U.N. authority. I can actually see that happening if Obama gets another term. The U.N. already asked for our soveriegnty once before and were met with a "not just no but...HELL no" by the republican party and Sen. John McCain but that won't hold up forever.

The One World Order is coming buddy, the Illuminati and Bilderbergs are laying the ground work to rebuild Nimrod's One World Order. Just a matter of time until all humanity is united into a one world government, religion and system of currency.

Which is a cop-out on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood who just so happens to be controlling the rebel army because they want to finish recreating the Caliphate and the reborn Ottoman Empire by the Muslim Brotherhood at the head of the Sunni's.

The UN should have had the blue helmets on standby in Turkey and ready to take over the supervision of the affected areas when the ceasefire started. Nothing is in place as at the ceasefire date. It goes to show the UN is very slow in implementing whatever it is trying to do. So sporadic fighting is still ongoing. From my point of view it will be a fight to the end and Kofi Annan was let down by the UN. The UN today is both soft and slow....how to get job done. Have to be fast and decisive with no second guessing.
