nsnbc.me – Geneva II on Syria can show direction but not end the War

The National Coalition for the Syrian Revolutionary Forces (NCROF) declared its inability to announce whether it would participate in the Geneva II conference until two days before the conference. An assistant of UN/AL Envoy Brahimi told the largest domestic Syrian opposition group, the National Coordination Committee (NCC), that it was not invited to Geneva. Neither Qatar, Saudi Arabia, or any of the core NATO members who are backing various armed insurgencies would achieve a strategic advantage via a peaceful resolution of the war. The greatest success of finally holding the Geneva II conference will be that the outcome will make it clear that there is only one solution to the conflict, and that this solution is a Syrian solution and not one that is forced upon the country by foreign interests.

The only offer which the Syrian government could legitimately table in Geneva, is that all opposition groups and parties represented in Geneva would be welcome to participate in the Syrian political discourse, on equal terms with all others, if they cease fire, disarm, and stop any illegal subversive activities.
It is very unlikely that al-Jarba or any other leader of any of the foreign backed groups will accept such terms, or that they even would be allowed to do so by their paymasters.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Sunday he had no plans to stand down, stressing that only the Syrian people had the right to determine the country’s future.
”If we wanted to surrender, we would have surrendered from the start,” Assad told Russian parliament members during a meeting in Damascus, according to Russian news agency Interfax.
”This issue is not under discussion,” he said when asked to comment on Western and opposition calls for him to stand down and take part in elections.

proletaren.se – ”Syriska rebeller hindrar nödhjälp till palestinier”

I flyktinglägret Yarmouk i Damaskus södra utkanter är den humanitära situationen akut. Det råder brist på mat, mediciner och möjlighet att få vård. En representant för Folkfronten för Palestinas befrielse (PFLP), som Proletären varit i kontakt med, menar att anklagelsen om att det är den syriska arméns fel att palestinier svälter ihjäl är felaktig.
– Mediernas rapporter stämmer inte. Armén vill släppa in nödhjälp. Det är några av de väpnade grupperna i Yarmouk, Jabhat al-Nusra och andra, som vägrar låta hjälpen komma in, säger PFLP-representanten.
