Envoy to Syria: Neither side shows signs of backing down

Reeling from his doomed cease-fire plan that disintegrated in hours, international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi met Monday with Russia's foreign minister on what to do about the Syrian civil war.

It was Brahimi's first meeting with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as U.N.-Arab League envoy to Syria, a position he inherited after other world diplomats also failed to stop more than a year of relentless bloodshed. Brahimi said neither side of the crisis is showing signs of backing down.

    The stupid Alawites don't seem to realize that this is a war of attrition, and they are outnumbered 8 to 1. I guess they can't do the math and realize the inevitable outcome if they continue to kill Sunnis.
