The first of two key Syrian deadlines came and went this morning, and while the Syrian government has reported partial completion of its pledge to withdraw heavy forces from population centers the fighting continues.
Western officials are already spinning this as “defiance” of the ceasefire, even though technically the ceasefire isn’t scheduled to begin until Thursday morning. It is clear, however, that both sides continue to launch attacks, albeit at a somewhat reduced level, and the plan is in serious doubt.
UN Special Envoy Kofi Annan, however, spurned Western calls to declare his peace initiative dead, asking “if you want to take the plan off the table, what will you replace it with?” The answer of course is civil war, with Gulf nations looking even more aggressively at plans to smuggle weapons into the nation to prop up their own favored rebel factions.
The White House was mum on exactly what measures the US will look to take next, but seem keen on getting some sort of UN Security Council resolution to support intervention in the country. Both Russia and China are still opposed to this, however, and would almost certainly veto such a resolution.

The Syrian government had no obligation toward these thugs nor they needed to withdraw their forces from anywhere, it was these thugs and murderers who started this and therefore needs to come up with a plan signed and guaranteed that they would comply with Mr. Annan peace plan. Look, we all know what Obama and Hillary hand in hand with EU and NATO want, that is simply for dividing people in middle east more as they are and by all means, for that they are using Saudis, UAE, Jordan Kingdom, Turkey a NATO member and Israel. In that regard, Saudis, UAE, Jordanians, Turkey have their own demand which needs to be done by US and EU militarism, and that is to stop the Iranian political influence in the region. Here, China and Russia are involved so rest of the matter is about the US and EU – Israel losing their share of power in middle east, so the Syrian people are the latest victims for such a falsified “democratically” planed foreign policy. US and EU already have lost their share of power not only in middle east but all over the world, in keeping what they have; therefore, they are at war making sure that their world is militarized with what they call as their "friends stays as their friends". Otherwise Hillary Clinton nor Obama or for that matter Cameron, Sarkozi dont give a damn about Saudis nor UAE in any moment in time.
Pure theater. McCaniacs arrival to confer with the empires puppets should prove that beyond any doubt.
goofy kofi thought he could fix things??
