SNC chief OKs truce if Assad troops cease fire first

In Syria the dialog of the deaf between the Assad government and the opposition continues, as it has from the beginning of the civil war, 19 months and 33,000 deaths later.

SNC leader Abdel Basset Sayda has received favorably the proposal put forth by the UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi for a cease fire, on the condition that Assad’s troops begin it. ”

We will welcome every proposal to end the killing, but we believe that the appeal must first be made to the Syrian regime which has never ceased to bomb the cities and villages of Syria,” Saida said. Brahimi has proposed a four day truce for the Muslim Feast of Sacrifice (Eid al-Adha) which begin October 25th. The Damascus government, in its turn, has welcomed the proposal on the condition that the truce involves not only the opposition forces, but also those countries which support them.

    ah my, thank you for reminding us it has been 19 months this blog and its eminent bloggers are announcing to us the imminent fall of assad to be surprised today to hear the french foreign affair minister stating that lafaroff told him that assad will go nowhere because the majority of his people supports him

    • 5thDrawer

      And I can hear the chuckles of joy from one ‘Lebanon1 of 452’ aliases as the Feast of Sacrifice of all the lambs begins once again … in that other never-ending-story that Assad will live forever. Which is not the same as saying he will go nowhere. But it’s a fine point largely ignored, of course, by those who enjoy being the ones crowing about continual sacrificing, or attempting to refute everything anyone has an opinion on which may be less insane.

        I take it you don’t like the idea that the majority of the Syrian people what Assad to stay in power hey 5th. That must mean that he must be doing something right. And that maybe most of what is written in the western media about him and his government is a load a crap. Just maybe. Doesn’t make a difference because he is defiantly going nowhere, and these animals the FSA will defiantly be destroyed and die like the dogs they are.

          If Assad had any love for his country he would have stepped aside 18 months ago. He only has love for his seat. Wake up!

        seems sanity is relative; what is acceptable to one culture is not in another culture; hence my conclusion you and i do not stem from common roots: i come from lebanese phoenician roots you are probably an arabi jew; i am rational, you are subjectively involved in the support of the israeli cause; i am for suvival of all minorities, you do not consider jews as a minority…….

    The Syrian regime has lost 61 military aircrafts in its war against the armed Free Syrian Army (FSA), according to the Syrian Revolution General Commission (SRGC). 

    Many of those aircrafts were shot down when they were bombing residential neighborhoods and flying in low altitudes, the SRGC said, adding that about 53 of the operations were documented with pictures and video.

    The army has received the lion’s share in the Syrian budget, and most of that money has gone in weapons purchase deals with Russia.

    Of all the aircrafts downed, the FSA destroyed 37 helicopters, and 24 Mig, Sukhoi fighter and training jets. 

    According to statistics published by the SRGC, 40 aircrafts were shot down, and 21 were destroyed in FSA attacks on military airport bases.

    It does not really matter whether mashed potatoe head falls or does not fall, as long as he keeps destroying his so called desert country and keeps him occupied with his internal affairs, is good enough for me.

    • lebsyrian

      So called desert country…. Continue to destroy? These are peoples lives your talking about, have a little more respect. Your comments are repulsive-third world comments.

      • Leborigine

        How can you say my comments are repulsive when most of the pro syrians on this website promote and thrill over the deaths and killings of the FSA and the pro democracy protesters??! Once again you prove to be one sided. I did not mention death and if you read my earlier posts, I do not accept and totally against the deaths of women, children and inoccent bystanders! Destruction in my comment is of material destruction, when he destroys as much infrastructure as they did in Lebanon, then I will probably back off! An eye for an eye! Also think about what these bloggers are saying when they want to destroy israel, aren’t they peoples lives as well, i guess its ok to kill jews or israelis’though!

        • $31060015

          Talk about being one sided, I haven’t seen any comments from you regarding the Israeli warplanes that have carried out airstrikes in Gaza killing innocent woman and children. Oh, hang on a second, Yalibnan hasn’t aired this news or any other news that goes against IsraeHELL and its allies. Why would they when their employers are the one who have authorised the airstrikes.  

        • lebsyrian

          Just because others post more hateful comments than yours, doesnt make yours right. I am not pro any group or sect, I am for the poor innocent people getting caught in the middle… I understand Assad, His father and his cronies have fcuked lebanon over one too many times, just like he is doing to his own people now…but you must differentiate between Syria the country and the Assad Dictatorship… And i will not stand for u referring to Syria just as a “so called desert country” it is not just a desert, it is a homeland to millions of civilized people, and I am proud of my syrian heritage and its rich history which by the way, whether you like it or not, is deeply tied into yours in Lebanon. Either way, allah yihdee il jami3.

We all know the atrocities that israel is commiting against Gaza, but on the same token, Hamas are to blame as well for hiding and fighting from within and behind civilians! Regardless, besides women and children being killed, I do not care for either Gaza, West Bank, israel or syria. 
          I want Lebanon to prosper and I want Lebanon to be the jewel of the whole middle east and at the same time the fu&ers around us to respect our borders and our sovereignty.

          @lebsyrian:disqus I apologise if I have offended you and my problem is I speak from my heart and not my brains. I will be very honest with you, you probably have noticed anyway, but i have a lot and extreme hate for syria, it is so extreme that it reaches level of stupidity, i refuse to buy syrian products from arab stores, i refuse to watch syrian TV to the extent that when my parents are watching a syrian TV series, i would argue and leave their house. You might think that I’m a psycho and I do know that its not good, but I cannot help it. I have my own reasons though, not only from the civil war, but my interaction with a few syrians as well as pro syrian lebanese. I just want my country back, and the syrians should respect that and not waltz in whenever they want and treat it like their own. Same goes to the palestinians and to the israelis.
          In regards to having similar histories (I wouldn’t say deeply!!) but there are some common ties, syria also has some ties with palestine, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey, but it does not get involved with their cultures like it does with Lebanon. Not asking for much lebsyrian, we just want them to leave us alone and respect our identity, only then I will respect syria as a country!

      • $31060015

        You ask me to wake up. Believe me I am more awake than you can imagine. Why should Assad step aside. Because the US and its allies says so. He has every right to stay where he is and if an election is tested and he losers then and only then should most defiantly step down.

          Because Syria actually has “free elections” right? Cmon man, if you are a full supporter of Assad, i accept that… No problem… But dont feed me bullshi+

        assad father did commit massacres in Lebanon i agree with you but assad son is not neither in syria nor in Lebanon; whoever you support are doing so; i am repeating myself for the thousand’s time: assad son’s error is that he believes in democracy; if he was given the choice he would have left immediately however his community wont allow him; his departure implies the genocide of the 10 percent alawi community in syria as well as the christian minorites; the druze will be protected by israel; i do not think america, the architect of all of these wars, wants any massacre of minorites, just because these are the catalysers of any war usa wants to sparkle in the middle east though we know from experience that america can change its plans at any moment to accomodate for the human factor which on certain occasion yields massacres of such amplitude that whole cultures can be eradicated; i would support any devil that would keep these shayatin salfis away, knowing before hand that my support wont change anything on the ground but of course you do not want me to be supportive of those who want to kill me

    The Palestinians are dying in the presence of Hezbushaitan who become the sole agent of the resistance(FAKE) movement for the last 30 years. Within this time they have fought a FAKE war against Israel when the AMAL movement were exposed as a pro Israeli movement in Lebanon. The resistance of Hezbushaitan and Iranian Majoosis are done by mouth. 

    We have all seen how the Afghan Mujaheddin fought back against 70+ countries joint attack, we have seen the Iraqi resistance too. Now We are witnessing the Syrian resistance . You are blinded by the loud mouth propaganda of the Majoosis but we can exactly see what are you up to . Where is your resistance against Israel and how many inches of Land have you taken from Israel for the Palestinians? ZERO inches more over during this time Israel invaded land after land in Palestine. 

    We are concerned about the Syrian resistance because the Syrian people will liberate their land but first they have to boot out the Persian Majoosis invaders out of their land. Al Sham (Greater Syria) is not only todays Syria but it includes Jordan turkey Israel Palestine Lebanon, parts of Turkey and Egypt. 

    How the Syrian people liberated their Land from the Persian Majoosis and the Byzentine ? Here in HOMS the persians were defeated by the Syrians and Byzentine were lost too. Then again during the crusade the Persians and the Alawites were helping the crusaders so Salahuddin Ayubi know how to liberate palestine ….

    Salahuddin comprehended that he need to wipe out the host of the crusaders first. So he defeated the collaborator of the crusaders the Shia Fatimid Dynasty and then it was easy for him to drive the crusaders out. 

    Here again the history is repeating itself…..To liberate palestine the Syrian resistance need to liberate their land from the Persian collaborators of Israel and then it will be easy for them to take back Palestine. So first Bashar Al Majoosi then Hezbushaitan and then the Iranian Majoosis are needed to be eradicated from this region in order to libarate Palestine. I am sure the Israelis will take a heed against the sunni resistance who doesnt have a loud mouth but powerful IED.
