Posted on 09/08/2013 5:54:31 PM PDT by Nachum
NEW YORK On the eve of a critical Capitol Hill discussion on Syria and two days before his address to the nation, President Obama has offered Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a way out of any U.S. bombing campaign.
Informed Middle Eastern intelligence officials tell WND the U.S. passed a message to Assad through Russia offering a deal that would ensure against U.S. military action if the Syrian leader agrees to the following terms:
Serious political reforms that will result in free and fair presidential elections. Assad will not be allowed to run in future presidential elections and agrees to step down from power. An international committee will supervise control of Syrias chemical weapons arsenal. The international community, with U.S. participation, will help rebuild the Syrian army and security services to guarantee participation from all factions of the population. The model for this reorganization is the so-called Dayton plan that has been overseeing the restructuring of the Palestinian Authority security organizations and militias.
The Middle Eastern security officials told WND that Russia has already objected to the term that bars Assad from running in future presidential elections.
The security officials further stated the U.S. believes Assad will likely reject the deal.
The officials said Russian, North Korean and Iranian experts continue to prepare Syrias military and missile arsenal for the possibility of war, including the contingency of firing missiles at Israel, Jordan and Turkey.
As WND first reported, Iranian and North Korean experts are directing an operations room for the Syrian army ahead of a possible showdown with Western powers, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
What could go wrong with Obama calling the shots...
Much like the terms given to the Serbians by the Austrians.
There were I believe 12 of them, which the Serbs agreed to
all but one, that was enough and the war was on.
So all the threat of strikes was not about breaking the
norms on WMDs, but about regime change.
How about that.
The hubris of Obama is galling.
Was this list of demands written by the three stooges’ screenwriter ?
Obama must be one lousy poker player....
He has no cards to play.... He has shown everybody his hand....
Everybody has seen the next card in the deck.... And he thinks Assad will fold?
the obamites must not realize that they have satellite television and the internet in syria; assad knows the score. no one is striking anyone, so making a deal with these pretentious morons is just dumb.
Assad to Asshat: I elevate to you my middle finger, also the sole of my shoe in your face. Also, I fart in your general direction.
Syria, a sovereign nation, did not sign the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1996. The present conflict affects only Syrians. This conflict is not an international dispute; it’s a civil war initiated by insurgents and fought entirely in Syria.
It's like deja vu all over again
Obama has been so successful in everything else. /sarcasm
According to an iraqi site, he rejected the deal. I will try to find the source.
Obama wants money in a Swiss bank account
Obama looks more like a community organizer every day.
Unfortunately, he looks less presidential every day.
What are the steps? Anger, denial, bargaining,depression, and then acceptance? I just wonder what that last step is going to look like?
Kinda sounds like blackmail. The Chicago way.
Make him eat dirt! That will teach him a lesson.
A $10 billion donation to his slush fund?
What's the difference between the Muslim's threat and that of Obama’s??
Only the weapons - the sword versus the missile
Obama reminds me of a playground bully.
How do you say, “Nuts!” in Arabic?
Now Mr. Obama, you were saying?
Right, because the Dayton Plan has worked out so well ... (/sarc)
That's great. I see evidence of that plan's success in each rocket lobbed over the border by Palestinians.
His Arrogance is scrambling. His Saudi employers have told him there will be no bonus in his Swiss account this year unless he gets off butt (Reggie) and gets that Syrian thing sorted out.
In other words, the Alawite minority is to surrender to the al Qaeda backed Sunni Muslim majority: the lamb is to sit down with the three wolves and vote on what to have for dinner.
If this is serious, it shows how detached from reality Obama and Company truly are.
Custer to Sitting Bull: Lay down your arms, and we will allow you to surrender and take you as prisoners back to Chicago.
Almost that bad.
How much are you willing to accept for us NOT to bomb you? Is a trillion enough? It might take me a few days to raise that much but I'm confident my Press Corpse will help me get it.
Exactly. Order Assad to wear a pink bunny suit in public. Just as realistic a demand.
Obama is acting like a brass macaroni president/general from darkest Africa with the US military at his disposal. The only question that remains is if the joint chiefs and top military brass are completely compromised as well.
- No evidence Assad used WMD
- No UN Security Council Resolution to use force
- No "Coalition of the Willing" to apply force
- No Congressional Approval to use force
- No support from the American People to use force
- No money to pay for the use of force
Assad has all the cards, Obama has a teleprompter.
George Bush wisely delayed the US attack against Iraq until Saddam had transferred all of his WMDs out of Iraq
Most of those WMDs went to Syria and are still there. Syria has plenty of it's own too.
Every politician in the region is scared sh*tless about what could happen if they get used.
In any direct confrontation Syria will likely lose, but their WMD will take down a lot people all over the region.
Assad is not the kind of guy to go down without taking as much of the region as possible with him.
Be nice to have a Free and Fair election in the US for change. Getting a bit tired of Democrats loading the polls.
IMO Assad will tell Obama to take his dal and stick it.
Remember what Free and Fair elections got us in Egypt?
Obama wants the same thing in Syria.
Wonder if the Syrians would have to show ID?
Shut up, Barry, you talk too much for a fighting man - LOL -
“Remember what Free and Fair elections got us in Egypt?
Obama wants the same thing in Syria.”
The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda — Obama’s favorite “political parties”...
I would really like to see that...
Obumster is offering Assad an Affordable Care Act!
In the mean time. Us delegation goes to Iraq to discuss Syria
And what is interesting is the Syrian foreign minister will be there
Those were from May. Interesting to note.
“Obumster is offering Assad an Affordable Care Act!”
“If you like your country you can keep it.”
Amazing how these secrets always get leaked out on the Internet when 0 is surrounded by a staff that all have “security clearances”...surey couldn’t be intentional could it?
Errrr..sorry. Time to get on the pc and off the small screen
I’d like to see Zero trade jobs with the rodeo clown. Anyone who goes nose to nose with a Brahma bull could deal with Syrians.
Zero would just wet himself as he is pounded into dust.
I wonder what Islamic Brotherhood fellow obama has in mind
to run Should Assad agrees to step down. The president of the strongest country in the world, helping islamic brother-
Obama may have his hands tightly on the football. As soon as the Congress approves a strike, he’ll pull a Lucy and yank the ball with a negotiated settlement. It could happen as he’s meeting with Republican Congress critters this very night.
