Obama offers Assad secret deal, Sets 4 conditions to avert U.S. attack on Syria
wnd ^ | 9/8/13 | Aaron Klein

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 Syria’s 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 Syria’s 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.

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.

This is all about overthrowing the Syrian Gov't, not about chemical weapons.

The hubris of Obama is galling.

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?

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.

A $10 billion donation to his slush fund?

“Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded...”

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.

Of course it will never happen, but Assad could just petition to join the Russian Federation.

Now Mr. Obama, you were saying?

That's great. I see evidence of that plan's success in each rocket lobbed over the border by Palestinians.

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.

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.

Obama has

- 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.

FAIL

This won't happen.

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.

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.
