SNC’s ex-chief says time ripe for political settlement

Share:

Khatib SNCFormer Syrian National Coalition (SNC) chief, Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib, said on Tuesday the time was ripe to wrest a political solution while Damascus faces the threat of military action.

“A political solution is possible because this is the first time the regime is worried,” he told a group of journalists. “I say we must have a political initiative with a military action.”

Khatib, who spoke after meeting European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, headed the main opposition group SNC from November until April and is currently in exile in Cairo.

He said a quick surgical strike would have little effect on President Bashar al-Assad. “If you don’t finish the regime he will come back again and he will consider he’s won.”

“We must push for a political initiative,” he stressed. “I don’t believe war can bring peace to people.”

The former opposition leader said he was convinced that the regime was behind the deadly August 21 chemical weapons attack even if the decision to use the arms was made by local military authorities.

  1. This guy Moaz al-Khatib is out of his mind. Its Assad who may repent and beg for a negotiation but in all circumstance Assad has lost his legitimacy and for the Sunnis they have to remove this psychopath killer. No negotiation with a criminal. This shows weakness or willing to collaborate with a criminal. The American/European invasion can go wrong at any moment as the Iranian and the Syrian regime will be trying to do some kind of false flag attack and blame it on the rebel. The Al-Qaeda is placed there and they can take the responsibility as they did on 911 and London 7/7 bombing type of incident.

    I have read news that the Al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant are taking responsibility of the Iraqi bombing. This is scary time. We might see an European/American attack on the rebel. It sounds wired but I would like to say it based on US/European conflict of Interest with Iran and Assad in the region. Remember Hilary and John Kerry said Assad is a “reformer” while he was turkey shooting the protesters in the early stage. The false flag operation can change things in 180 degree turn. There is already gossip about the Chemical attack that the Al-Qaeda supposedly did it , we know that they dont have means to do it and Assad possess the weapon And on top if Al-Qaeda member come forward and claim responsibility then the whole ball game will change. For me if the rebel are killed while they are in a fight its alright and acceptable but I don’t like to see these deliberate civilian slaughter.
