Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in a phone conversation Wednesday that military and police operations in Syria had stopped, according to a U.N. statement.
The secretary general's office released a read-out of the conversation, during which, according to the statement, Ban also expressed alarm at reports of human rights violation in Syria.
During the conversation, al-Assad told Ban that "the military and police operations in Syria have stopped," it said.
Al-Assad has been under enormous international pressure to end a months-long military crackdown on anti-government protesters calling for free elections and an end to his regime.FULL STORY

I speak for democracy and for not killing ur own! Power corrupts! Selfishness at the expense of the common folks! And we stand by... Confront evil!
The greatest evil of all is on Capitol Hill where corruption rules and needs to be confronted. As long as Obama and his right-wing henchmen call the shots, this is the way things will stay. They're the ones who need to go, not Bashar al-Assad!
