Well that should end the Geneva II talks. If Russia is formally going to call Syrians terrorists, then the Syrians will not have any faith in Russia being at the table.

I think that is a very unprofessional comment for the 2 representatives from Russia to make. They virtually are saying that the only opposition that they will accept at the table are people Assad knows and appoints as the opposition, so that pretty much puts a nail in the coffin for the Geneva II

I thought Russia was wanting to help broker a deal for peace not increase a market for arms. Between these 2 and the speaker, Putin is missing the boat and needs to reign in his men, these guys are more trouble that what you guys are nagging about McCain.

The way to broker for peace is to end support for the opposition. AlQaeda terrorists will never engage in diplomacy.

Unfortunately, I agree with you, the al queda have already been caught with bombs in cars in Sochi and have vowed to expect a lot more.

AlQaeda will try to attack the West as well! Those weapons that were given to the "rebels" will inevitably come back to bite them.
