In his first public speech in six months, Assad laid out terms for a peace plan that keeps himself in power, ignoring international demands to step down and pledging to continue the battle "as long as there is one terrorist left" in Syria.

Thanks for this Carrie.
As far as I am concerned this man should have the UN after him for war crimes. Last I heard is that 60,000 people have been killed.

There is nothing in what he said that is surprising.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Bassem Mroue. Assad must be living in a fantasy world that revolves around him. He needs to unconditionally step down. Read and noted.

Re: "In his first public speech in six months, Assad laid out terms for a peace plan that keeps himself in power, ignoring international demands to step down and pledging to continue the battle "as long as there is one terrorist left" in Syria."

That's impossible. How can he keep himself in power AND continue his battle against terrorists in Syria? He'd have to kill himself or order his own execution in order to honor his pledge because he's the guiltiest terrorist of the lot.

What I understand is that a lot of this goes back to tribal, sectarian, politics and power plays, with Assad belonging to a minority Muslim sect, and probably not caring about the deaths of people of other sects, that, in fact his father killed some 20,000 people with chemical warfare tactics, in order to quell a prior insurrection.
So, what we have here is yet another tragic meeting of "My religion ubber alles," and greed and power cravings.

Thankfully this disgusting creep is a "short-timer'.
