So much for peace talks looks like the civil war is game on because the opposition refuses to attend Geneva until Assad is removed. If he is removed what the hell is the point of peace talks with him? When Assad fails I would say it's very likely he'll probably go out the way Gaddafi did.

This isn't the first time the opposition has refused to attend peace talks.

Syria opposition says no to peace talks without clear timeframe for Assad exit

Nov 3 (Reuters) - Syrian National Coalition President Ahmad Jarba said on Sunday the opposition would not attend proposed peace talks in Geneva unless there was a clear timeframe for President Bashar al-Assad to leave power.

"We have decided not to enter Geneva talks unless it is with dignity, and unless there is a successful transfer of power with a specific timeframe, and without the occupier Iran at the negotiating table," Jarba told an Arab League emergency meeting in Cairo.

Jarba's latest comments throw the proposed talks into further confusion. The United Nations envoy to Syria has said there would be no pre-conditions for the long-delayed peace talks.

The talks are meant to bring Syria's warring sides to the negotiating table, but have been repeatedly delayed because of disputes between world powers, divisions among the opposition and the irreconcilable positions of Assad and the rebels.

Arab and Western officials said this week that international powers were unlikely to meet their goal of holding the conference in November.
