The Arab League agreed on a path forward in Syria on Sunday that instructs President Bashar al-Assad to delegate powers to his vice president following the formation of a national unity government.
It called for the Syrian government to start a dialogue with the opposition within two weeks, and for the new government to be formed within two months.
The unity government should prepare to elect a council, within three months, that will write a constitution, the Arab League said. It should also prepare for parliamentary and presidential elections.FULL STORY
"...accept the things I cannot change..."
I dread the coming of the day when Mexico and Canada will "call for" the formation of a new government in the USA and instruct the POTUS to "delegate powers" to his vice president.
I look forward to the day when your fingers are cold and lifeless.
And does president asshead agree to these terms that outsiders are presenting to him?
@joey: LOL.. Yeah, it'll go over like a lead balloon. @tanya: Are you talking about ASSad? Or Joey..? ASSad I could care less about.. But Joey? I've seen worse..
It did'nt say assad planned on stepping down.There is not much of a story here.
That is really funny. A unity government in a country where three different tribes want the power. They are banding together right now to get rid of the current government, and then it's going to be a free for all. Last man standing so to speak.
Same sh!t, different day.
Is the Arab league genuinely trying to do something positive, and just being completely clumsy about it?
JIF, let us get our own act together first, then we'll see.
I believe the arab league is feigning stupidity, hoping we'll say we'll take care of it.
US, stay out of it.
I'm proud to say that Tanya meant me.
I can't that of any mind that I'd prefer to offend.
We'll be waiting.
@ bobcat (in a hat):
Good morning. I wish that I were in the South today.
Do you have to be so rational in your analysis of the Syrian situation? Can't you give us some hot copy about human rights, oppression (brutal), women and children, and Miss-America-level world peace?
Bobcat, I agree.
The USA needs to stay away from this...
