108 Slaughtered in Syria: Kofi Annan Commits to “Serious and Frank Discussions"!

By John W. Lillpop

Syrian rebels fighting the evil Bashar Assad regime have again been bitterly disappointed by the utter lack of competent support and leadership from UN Special Envoy Kofi Annan.

As reported at the reference, the latest slaughter in Syria cost more than 100 innocent lives:

BEIRUT—A weekend massacre of more than 100 people emerged as a potential turning point in the Syrian crisis Monday, galvanizing even staunch ally Russia to take an unusually hard line against President Bashar Assad's government.

UN-Arab League Joint Special Envoy for Syria (JSE) Kofi Annan arrived in Damascus on Monday for talks with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. They said pro-government gunmen later stormed the area, doing the bulk of the killing by gunning down men in the streets and stabbing women and children in their homes.

The Syrian government rejected that account entirely, saying soldiers were attacked in their bases and fought back in self-defense without leaving their bases.

Russia blamed both the government and the rebels for the Houla massacre.”

Meanwhile, Kofi Annan displayed his fierce temper and commitment to action with these words:

"I intend to have serious and frank discussions with President Bashar al-Assad," Annan said. "Our goal is to stop this suffering."

Serious and frank discussions, Mr. Annan? Isn’t that a bit extreme for a weasel-bureaucrat such as you?

By the way, what is the latest from Barack Hussein Obama? Leading from behind again?
