Arab body wants withdrawal of Syria monitors because they are being used as cover to kill civilians, now what?
An advisory body to the Arab League has called for the immediate withdrawal of the group's observer mission in Syria, saying its monitors are inadvertently helping the government cover up continued violence.The Arab Parliament, an 88-member advisory committee of delegates from each of the League's member states, said on Sunday that the violence in Syria was continuing to claim victims despite the presence of Arab League monitors.
The parliament called on the League's Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby to convene a meeting of Arab foreign ministers to adopt a resolution to withdraw the mission immediately. "For this to happen in the presence of Arab monitors has roused the anger of Arab people and negates the purpose of sending a fact-finding mission," Ali al-Salem al-Dekbas, the Arab Parliament's chairman said. "This is giving the Syrian regime an Arab cover for continuing its inhumane actions under the eyes and ears of the Arab League," he said.
Arab League Falters in Syria as Plans to End Crisis Dwindle: The Arab League has raised questions about its commitment to halting Syria’s deadly crackdown on protesters by putting a Sudanese general with close ties to an indicted war-crimes suspect in charge of a monitoring mission intended to hold the government accountable.
I am incensed! I am sure none of those in charge have been smart enough to put two and two together yet and realize what is happening and getting ready to happen. They are being played !
Iran not now and will not in the future stand idly by and allow Syria to fall to Democracy. You better know for a fact Iran's IRG is leading the atrocities against the protesters and Al Qaeda if not Saudi Arabia is helping the protesters. Both sides are fighting for what they think will be the future direction of the middle east.
Russia already has warships on sight prepared to protect their interests in Syria and Russia and China say they will protect their vast interest in Iran. It is no surprise that the whole package is coming to a head all at once meaning the Arab spring countries too along with Iraq which has already started to break. Question is can we keep it contained to the middle east and from erupting into WW3?
You know I firmly believe and have said so a million times by now that since 9/11 everything was construed to allow Bush to gain the power he needed to prosecute his new order not just in the Middle East but on the entire world! He diverted from Afghanistan to get back into the Middle East with the goal of setting up a larger safety zone for Israel and going after Iran. Both will fail! It has long been my contention that coming to Israel's aid once they attack Iran will be our in to Iran!
The entire middle east and north Africa and our more than century of interference and exploitation can take the blame for that too. Planting our military in the middle of the mess Bush has created out of the Middle East because of his failed Democratization program is going to be a Custer's Last Stand on a grand scale if we are still there when this breaks open!
You have to be very concerned about what is happening in Syria especially. Iran is not going to allow Syria to fall to Democracy. What we saw after the voter fraud in Iran was mild compared to what the IRG will do if this movement spreads to Iran. I really wish Bashar would step down but Iran is the elephant in the room any way you look at it. The total middle east breakdown Sunni against Shiite we have written about numerous times is well under way. We can only hope we keep it from erupting into WW3.
This is a deadly game of chess Syria, Iran, Arab nations and the west are playing and it will not end good. Now what do we do?
