US rejects Assad’s latest plan as “detached from reality”

The Obama administration is rejecting a new proposal from Syrian President Bashar Assad that would begin a peace process and keep the besieged leader in power.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says Assad’s latest plan is “detached from reality” and would only allow the regime to continue its oppression of the Syrian people.

Assad spoke Sunday in a rare public speech, outlining a new peace initiative that includes a national reconciliation conference and a new constitution. He ignored international demands to step down and pledged to continue the nearly two-year fight against rebels challenging his authoritarian rule.

Nuland says Assad has lost all legitimacy and should step aside to allow for a political solution and a democratic transition that satisfies the Syrian people.

    When Asshead started killing and torturing unarmed protesters including women and children. He forfeited his right to negotiate. Too little too late Asshead.

    • Mohamed Omar

      Write whatever you want but i would like to inform that mercenaries from US,Turkey and Arab countries will never win this war.

      • Btru2u

        I agree this is what it seems because Russia , china, Iran , America, and its allies are now evidently against the resistance. Muslims brothers are now flocking to help stop Assheads genocide.This is what will make this a very special and miraculous victory for the umma. inshallah. Assad and his supporters are already a losers morally , and militarily. They get no respect from the majority of Syria and the Muslim world. Iran and Hezbollah supports him purely for sectarian reasons and the lust for political power. Fortunately Not all shia and Alawis feel that way and they too are divided. The daily defections prove the tide is turning against him. Brothers should stand united against this killer and torturer of Muslims. I pray you wake up from your delusional state. And stand for what is right.

        • FreetheME

          And what is right, extremist with their long beards and shaved moustaches screaming Allah Akbar, kill, kill, kill. Which BTW are being paid large sums of money. The reality is if these animal terrorist weren’t paid they would not take one step into Syria. Furthermore, not sure where you are getting your information from, however these dogs are being killed by the hundreds each day. The fact that you call these animals your brothers only tells me how sick you really are. As for Assad’s moral, I suggest you go back and watch his last speech to the world. Only this time don’t just hear it, try and listen as well. One more thing Btru2u, instead of asking the Muslim world to unite against Assad, you should be asking them to unite against Israel for the pain they have caused the Palestinians. Or is that not a cause worth fighting for.

          did the Muslim brother stand against the Assad family when the were in Lebanon dictating our lives 
          this war in black and white is about religion

      US has has destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan,Libya and now Syria and they can’t survive without Arab oil .   

      • nagy_michael2

        if the US involved totally in Syria like it did in Iraq then i agree. otherwise its only handfull of western logistical support and arab money and some light weapons. I didn’t want the war in Iraq and Libya either but Saddam was a killing machine and Ghaddafi was hell on earth. But the US got suckered as usual by the french and english. If the US wants the total oil as you all have that idea. then they would have attacked Iran with Israel long time ago since they already have Saudis and gulf in their bags..

        • FreetheME

          A handful of western logistical support and Arab money and some light weapons you say. Man you must have been schooled at the same place as Wargame. I suppose this is the information your masters have brainwash you with.

          OBAMA AND BUSH…
          freeing ourselves from foreign oil” as a policy goal in his election victory speech last week, echoing his predecessor, George W. Bush, who in 2006 urged the U.S. to break its “addiction” to imported crude.

          U.S. oil output is poised to surpass Saudi Arabia’s in the next decade, making the world’s biggest fuel consumer almost self-reliant and putting it on track to become a net exporter, the International Energy Agency said.

          You see they have so much on and around but the government do not give out more than 10% of licence to dig for oil as the rest of the world does, FACT IT IS US POLICY.. BUT FACT IS THERY HAVE A LOOOOOOOOT OF OIL….HATE MAKES YOU BLIND…AND I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT STOCK PILE OF BARRELS I AM TALKING ABOUT WHAT IS SITTING UNDER YOUR FEET AND IN THE WATER THAT IS YET TO BE DRILLED…..

        • Moe28

           @master09:disqus  So am I, USA has only 30 billion barrels of proven oil reserves when Iraq, Iran KSA, Kuwait, Qatar, Libya,  Have nearly a trillion in proven oil reserves, Venezuela has 270 billion Canada has about 200 billion. China has 30 billion Russia has about 35 billion. Natural gas Russia, Iran, Qatar have nearly 80% of the worlds Gas combined.

        • Hannibal

          @Moe28:disqus It does not matter where the oil is… The U.S. will invade and grab it… and there is nothing you or others can do about it. The fact is the U.S. is like a huge mosquito and when hungry they will suck you dry.

        • master09

          MOE28 you still have no clue what I am talking about. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THE BARREL STOCK THEY HAVE…. IT IS WHAT THEY HAVE UNDER GROUND ,,,,,,,UNDER GROUND,,,,, LET ME SAY IT ONE MORE TIME UNDER GROUND AND UNDER WATER THAT IS STILL TO BE UNTAPPPPPPPPEDDDD…

    Interesting propaganda piece from the US. from a country slaughtering people across the Middle east.
    Both the UK and US have clearly stated that they would slaughter every man woman and child if that is what it takes to put their puppet government in place.
    US Nuclear attack subs and aircraft carrier ready to move in…….

    The only ones detached from reality are the ones who are financing this war. After 2 years paying billions of dollars and thousands of the terrorist animals dead, Syria still stands strong in the face of this bullshit revolution. Assad’s speech proved that as well as the reaction of the people. The reality is when election are held next year, Assad will win hands down. And the world know this to well.
