Kofi Annan, Syrian president agree on new political approach

Describing his recent talks with Assad as constructive and candid, Annan told reporters on Monday that they had ”discussed the need to end the violence, and ways and means of doing so”.
Annan did not mention details of the new approach; he only said that during the talks he stressed the “importance of moving ahead with political dialogue, which the president accepted.”
We agreed an approach which I will share with the armed opposition,” he told reporters after meeting Assad in Damascus.

nyhetsbanken.se – Annan kritiserar väst

Förenta Nationerna sändebud till Syrien, Kofi Annan, kritiserar vissa västmakters kommenterar Ryssland när det gäller krisen i Syrien, och ställde samtidigt frågan om de andra länderna som ”skickar vapen och pengar.”

Och så får vi städa lite efter de degenererade mainstreammedierna igen. det som Ekot beskrev som ett – Tungt avhopp för Syriens Bashar al-Assad – och att: En general i det syriska republikanska gardet, som är elitstyrkan närmast presidenten Bashar al-Assad, har deserterat och flytt till Turkiet, är som vanligt en aning förvridet. Tydligen är det så att generalen ifråga inte har varit i tjänst sedan i augusti förra året. Han hade aspirationer på att bli försvarsminister (vilket hans far var tidigare) men de styrande verkar inte haft förtroende för honom.
Sharmine Narwani – Syrian General Manaf Tlass: Neither Here Nor There

The departure of Brigadier General Manaf Tlass from Syria continues to make headlines around the world. But amidst the fanfare, the question of whether this latest development has lasting significance is not at all clear. There are several points to consider:

Russ Baker – Everything They’re Telling Us About Syria….is False?

A “defecting” general, the Houla massacre, and more—so much of the news out of Syria seems pretty far from the truth. If you’re not asking questions yet, you should be.
Friday, we read in the New York Times and elsewhere about one of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s most important supporters and allies having defected. The impression one gets is that Assad’s government is in a state of collapse— and this gives credibility to those pushing for Assad to turn over power.
But what the media are not mentioning is that Brigadier General Manaf Tlass did not defect directly from the Assad inner circle. He had already fallen into disfavor early in the uprising and lost his command in May 2011—14 months ago. If you had that additional piece of information, you would interpret the news reports in a totally different way.
