Syria Crisis: Geneva Peace Talks End In Recriminations

The Syrian government and opposition have traded insults after a week-long peace conference in Geneva ended with no firm agreement.

Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said the opposition were immature, while the opposition's Louay Safi said the regime had no desire to stop the bloodshed.

However, UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi said he had seen some "common ground", and scheduled more talks for 10 February.

Now Assad will return to his regularly scheduled killing of Al Qaeda.

I’m trying to care. Really, I am.

Violent moozlums killing other violent moozlums. It’s a win-win.

Gosh, no one saw that coming. Let’s see... Red line talk, then complete capitulation regarding Assad’s criminal regime... Iran backs the Assad regime to the hilt, along with their criminal occupying proxy groups in Lebanon... Lurch and Zero “negotiate” an “agreement” with Iran, i.e., surrender to the Iranian mullahcracy. Next they say, let’s have some “negotiations” about the Syrian civil war. Thanks Steelfish.

Prayer for Peace in Syria

 

God of Compassion,
Hear the cries of the people of Syria,
Bring healing to those suffering from the violence,
Bring comfort to those mourning the dead,
Strengthen Syria’s neighbors in their care and welcome for refugees,
Convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms,
And protect those committed to peace.

God of Hope,
Inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek reconciliation with enemies,
Inspire the Church around the world with compassion for the people of Syria,
And give us hope for a future of peace built on justice for all.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Prince of Peace and Light of the World,
Amen.

Petition: For the people of Syria, that God may strengthen the resolve of leaders to end the fighting and choose a future of peace.
