No reason that the West cannot work out a diplomatic solution to this conflict.

It will require Assad to step aside as he is not unbiased enough to negotiate.

I was all set to negotiate with Students for a Democratic Society if the Weathermen just stopped blowing things up, which they refused to do btw, so I decided I'd throw out some feelers to the Black Panthers since that Malcolm X guy seemed pretty rational. They did get back to me but I'd already resigned by then. Oh, well.

You should have given the Black Panthers what they wanted to begin with. They were the true voice of the people.

West has nothing to do with representing the rebels. The rebel leadership of pure Syrians and ex Syrian army that refused to shoot their own people demand Assad step aside then a peaceful resolution can be forged from the ruins. What I don't get is why do some people deny Assad as a dictator his dad ruled before him and what's next someone else in the family takes over. There is no democracy in father to son power exchanges. Kinda like calling North Korea a fine example of a free voting system. How many more dead bodies have to hit the ground before Assad steps aside? He is the cause of all this bloodshed through aggressive state controlled leadership ruling with an iron fist in one hand and a bayonet in the other. Step aide Assad and let your people heal and move forward.

Solid strength in your comment, backed up with the truth that has cost so many lives to demonstrate the root cause of distrust within Syria. The Syrian government have themselves to blame, and yet they try to convince the world that they are protecting the Syrian population whilst bombing the country to pieces. Was it necessary to put down a peaceful demonstration using firearms instead of listening to the demands, unquestionably you cannot do deals with dictators?

Syria is a jigsaw of many pieces needing careful handling to complete the puzzle, Bashar Al Assad mirrors his image inside that puzzle but a lot of pieces are missing, gone forever as he should be too.

The west is alarmed at the extremists presance in Syria and are quite aware of the situation. It's well documented. Thus when it comes to military support the west has held back and the void of logistics and heavy armourment was filled by Al Quada and other small groups via Iraq. That's not to say Turkey and Saudi Arabia have directly backed rebel finances, advisors, and logistics and Turkey has provided an original safe haven for rebel forces as a neighbor country flooded with refugees its in Turkeys interest to see a friendly government assemble and a safe return of the Syria people without directly getting involved itself.

The Syrian revolution has been taken over by extremist jihadists, period.

They now control the situation. The West has backed itself into a corner. Allying itself with Gulf states who ally themselves with these extremists has created a lose/lose quagmire for all but the extremists. Lip service to moderate, reform minded democratic elements in the Syrian opposition is now a joke (on us). Don't say history never repeats itself.

Good luck in resolving it.

It is attitudes like yours that prevent a negotiated settlement. Since when have I supported a Jihadist as you put it? Answer, never, but you make these exaggerated conclusions in your head the same as the extremists, terrorists, Assad and his regime and try to push this opinion on the world or the "West" as you call them so as to gain support for Assad, instead of supporting Syrians.

True answer: You are a de facto supporter of the same international terrorists that fight Western forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. It's only a fluke of geography, timing and political farce that you're not rounded up for questioning or summary arrest and detention.

If they can't resolve it, the Russians, the Iranians and the Chinese will need to resolve it for them.

Your incompetance in interpretting someones blog is incredible, you are more of a danger to yourself. You, Chris and Truth think the same and have the same attitudes.
