Opposition to UN mission: Implement a peace plan in Syria or go home

(CNN) - The opposition claimed at least 25 people were killed in early morning violence Saturday in Syria while activists say a U.N. monitoring mission to oversee a peace plan to end the bloodshed has been futile.

The opposition allegations come as the United States says it is tracking a Russian military cargo ship en route to Syria that is carrying weapons, ammunition and a small number of Russian troops.

U.S. intelligence believes the Russians are sending the ship to help fortify its naval base in Syria as the situation in country continues to spiral out of control, Pentagon officials told CNN Friday.

Frustration over 15 months of relentless killings in Syria came to a head when opposition activists sent a message to a U.N.-backed observer mission: Implement a peace plan in order to stop the bloodshed - or go home.

    Ignore ME all you want @banasy. I would appreciate it if you did pay attention to issues I raise.
    What "independant source" you speak of verified exactly sho financed 9/11?
    Most all of US claim OBL did. Can you verify this using an "independant source" that can be questioned and checked for facts?

      @phillip, the bad thing about saying OBL financed, is you have to look to who financed him, trained him, and who armed him and his people. The money trial leads to the CIA

    With Russia blocking the Security Council and unwilling to put pressure on Assad, it was only a matter of time for this to begin to unravel, the question is, how long will Russia refuse to put some serious pressure on Assad and how long until this becomes regional. The Arab League, I think, is the only group with credibility outside of Russian influence, but they haven't the will to act overtly.

      @chrissy, thank you. People useuly call someone a nut, or a conspiracy theorist, but all you need to do is follow the money trail. And look at who truly benefits from the situation. One thing is clear, no Arab group has benefited from 9/11. Who has? High level government contractors and the politicians who sort them. And the government in general, since they have used it it stall most of the citizens rights.

    I pray for the children who, if they survive this bloodbath, are left as orphans. The children, who have had to witness such violence being unleashed against their families and friends. What will become of them. Hatred, strife and sectarianism will, surely, live on in the hearts of men... but, how far and for how long. When will we, ever, learn that each one can have their beliefs and,.still, love one another. If not for our sake, then, for the sake of them.

    @ Chrissy:

    Missed you, lots!

    UN should implement the same strategy they used in Lybia. It worked than, it will work in Syria also. Assad had plenty of time to make his leadership into a successful one, but his policies arent working. He should quit now before he ends up like the infamous Saddam. Give up your power for your future freedom.

    I don't know about this US "tracking Russian cargo shop" CNN reports. The last time I heard of a Russian cargo ship being tracked by the US gov, it was carrying another load of AK-94 assault rifles to Venezuela. US Navy warships siezed the cargo.
    Now, why would Venezuela buy 300 million dollars worth of top-shelf assault rifles, and after those rifles were siezed, pay the AK arms corporation to build a facility in Venezuela?
    Wait. I got it. US Navy war ships aren't allowed in Venezuela.

      Good Morning, Chrissy!

      What's up with the monitors? When I post a comment, there's no telling where it gets posted. It's annoying... even more so than the trolls who are almost laughable.

      Have a great day,
      Hope

    This is becoming a sad story of Russia trying to establish itself as offering other options besides "Western Solutions" and in making their point and stand, people are crushed underneath and a UN left toothless and helpless to watch.
    I really hope this matter can be contained before it becomes a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia that could spread to other countries.

    I would have thought the Arab League would have put for SOME effort to resolve this long ago.
