"Instead, it will likely provide time and cover for the regime of Bashar al-Assad to continue using tanks and artillery to assault Syrian cities and indiscriminately kill civilians."

Fact check

Syria was calm and peaceful until heavily armed Western-backed insurgents arrived. Assad supports conflict resolution. He has all along. Syrian National Council (SNC) leaders reject it. 

So does Washington. Obama generated violence for regime change. He's not backing off now. Assad's more victim than villain. You'd never know it from scoundrel media misreporting and lies.

"The Annan plan won't work because, like the Arab League plan before it, it calls for the Assad government to take steps that would lead to its swift collapse -- and the regime has no intention of capitulating."

"To buy time last year, the regime accepted nearly identical demands by the Arab League, admitted its monitors -- and then proceeded to ignore its obligations completely."

Fact check

Most Syrians support Assad. Polls confirm it. The longer violence rages, the stronger his support. It's true virtually everywhere foreign elements intervene violently.

Assad didn't instigate it. He supports negotiations to end it. However, he won't stand aside while killer gangs terrorize Syrians, nor should he.
