From the Daily Telegraph:

Syria: Bashar al-Assad vows to 'fully cooperate' with plan to destroy chemical weapons
Bashar al-Assad has said his regime would "fully cooperate" with a US-Russian plan to decommission his chemical weapons arsenal but continued to deny his troops were responsible for a gas attack that killed more than 1,000 people.


By Raf Sanchez, Peter Foster in Washington12:22AM BST 19 Sep 2013 38 Comments
In surprisingly compliant comments, the Syrian president said he intended to abide by the terms of the Chemical Weapons Convention and would a provide inventory of his arms and allow weapons inspectors into the country.
"When we agreed to join this agreement we want to fully cooperate with this agreement not partially," he told Fox News.
However, Mr Assad denied that his government had carried out the attack on August 21, shrugging off the findings of a recent UN reports which said that more than a tonne of high-quality sarin gas had been used, as well as tracking the trajectory of at least two rockets from Republican Guard bases "We didn't use any chemical weapons," Mr Assad, "because if you would have used it you would have hurt your own troops."

He suggested that chemical weapons may have been provided to the Syrian rebels by "other governments" and referred to Sarin as "kitchen gas" because it was so easy to make.(End of Telegraph writing)

Even the Pope (above)has pleaded for peace-ie: not killing innocent people in Syria,like they have done in SO MANY other countries..
Putin may have been out of order in Chechnya but he has not invaded any nations outside what he considers Russia,unlike America!
The only people who want to attack are those who stand to gain the WEALTH in so may ways..practically the entire world already hates America's foreign policy of bombing women & children.
They are worse than anyone..they are the true terrorists.
The pope wrote a letter asking for restraint.

Pope Francis addressed the escalating violence in Syria before crowds packed into St. Peter's Square at the Vatican in Rome, deploring talk of military intervention
Francis writes, "It is regrettable that, from the very beginning of the conflict in Syria, one-sided interests have prevailed and in fact hindered the search for a solution that would have avoided the senseless massacre now unfolding.
He added, "all governments have the moral duty to do everything possible to ensure humanitarian assistance to those suffering because of the conflict, both within and beyond the country's borders."

The thing is those barbarous Syrian having nerve gas is the same as putting guns in the hand of stupid children. The option that should be considered if the head guy allows it, is to have the inspector come in by land being escorted by armored vehicles, the Syrian lead head would have to agree to a fly over ban by the Syrian airplanes on the given set days, while the Russian planes fly over as cover escort, aforehand, dropping as it was done in Iraq, leaflets explaining the stern warning (hopefully they can read.) if they fire on the U.N. they it will suicidal on their part because the all seeing eye surveillance aircraft of the U.S. will relay the position of the offending fire to the U.N. or Naval Fleet offshore if need be, to respond will overwhelming silencing fire whether they be in civilian areas or not--the blood be on their hand in the eyes of the world and have no defense in argument that it was not right they were fired upon. Let them show the world then that they are not bloody ignorant barbarian with the reasoning like unto a mad dog.
Let's not forget the U.S. satellites in orbit that can spot a Pepsi bottle that Bob is drinking under the tree.

Mass starvation feared in Syria; 'We have no food'


BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian opposition groups and international relief organizations are warning of the risk of mass starvation across the country, especially in the besieged Damascus suburbs where a gas attack killed hundreds last month.

With the world's attention focused on the regime's chemical weapons, activists said six people — including an 18-month girl — have died for lack of food in one of the stricken suburbs in recent weeks.

Save the Children said in an appeal Monday that more than 4 million Syrians, more than half of them children, do not have enough to eat. Food shortages have been compounded by an explosion in prices.

"The world has stood and watched as the children of Syria have been shot, shelled and traumatized by the horror of war," said Roger Hearn, Save the Children's regional director for the Middle East. "The conflict has already left thousands of children dead, and is now threatening their means of staying alive."

Thousands of people are believed trapped in suburbs east and west of the capital that have been held for months by rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad. Regime troops are besieging the areas, and residents say food is increasingly had to find. Rebels say they are trying to break the blockade.

The suburbs were the site of the Aug. 21 attack that a U.N. report found included the use of the nerve gas sarin. They were home to more than 2 million people before the war, but it is unclear how many are there now.

In some hard-hit areas such as the western suburb of Moadamiyeh, people are running out of food and are mostly relying on lentils, olives and dried figs, according to residents and activists.

"We have no food, no milk and no medicine," said a woman from Moadamiyeh, who identified herself by her nickname Um Lujain for fear of government reprisals. "We are surviving on one meal a day"

Um Lujain said her 18-month-old daughter has lost half her weight and spends most of her days sleeping. The woman said her daughter's diet is based on the liquid she makes by boiling lentils.

"There has been no children formula or bread for about a year," the woman said. She added that sometimes rebels find expired boxes of powdered milk in abandoned shops or pharmacies, and people still give it to their children for lack of food.

According to the Moadamiyeh Media Center, six people have died of starvation over the past 20 days: two women and four children ages 18 months to 7 years. It added that 15 other children are in intensive care in clinics, suffering from malnutrition.

On Monday, the opposition Syrian National Coalition accused government forces of tightening their months-long siege. "Assad's forces are starving people to death in those areas," the coalition claimed. "Famine looms in the horizon."

Rana Obeid, the 18-month-old girl, was the latest to die on Monday. An amateur video showed her lying on a bed, her ribs visible and her stomach bloated.

The video appeared genuine and corresponded to other AP reporting on the events depicted.

Mahmoud Abu Ali, an activist in Moadamiyeh, said the suburb has been under siege for 307 days. He added that most of the cows, sheep and goats died as a result of shelling or lack of feed, and people cannot plant their land because of daily bombardment.

"People wake up in the morning and there is no food to have breakfast. At noon there is no food for people to have lunch," Abu Ali said.

Khaled Iriqsousi, head of Syrian Arab Red Crescent, told The Associated Press that the organization has not entered suburbs of Damascus for five months because of the fighting.

Iriqsousi said by telephone that one of the most serious problems is that children are not getting vaccinated. "This will affect generations," he warned.

The United States and Russia brokered an agreement for Syria to give up its chemical weapons, but U.N. diplomats are at odds over details of a Security Council resolution spelling out how it should be done and the possible consequences if Syria doesn't comply.

In a speech at the U.N. on Tuesday, President Barack Obama challenged the Security Council to hold Syria accountable if it fails to live up to its pledges.

"If we cannot agree even on this," Obama said, "then it will show that the United Nations is incapable of enforcing the most basic of international laws."

Ertharin Cousin, head of the U.N.'s World Food Program, demanded that a potential cease-fire for the benefit of the experts who will secure Syria's chemical weapons include access for aid workers.

WFP is feeding 3 million people inside Syria.

Disarmament, what should be good for one, should be good for all. TPTB want us disarmed, yet they want to be able to wield their weapons. They simply want the upper hand. I say, keep your weapons Syria and add to them to secure your place on the globe. The moment you give up your ability to defend, is the moment you forfeit your freedom.

You have to wonder what's the point in taking away something that can be made at home but only has a 6-week shelf life? :headscratch:

The UN Security Council has unanimously backed a resolution requiring Syria to eliminate its chemical weapons. The document, put together by Russia and the US, imposes binding obligations on all parties of the Syrian conflict, but does not authorize immediate use of force for non-compliance. RT's Marina Portnaya reports on a landmark vote, and a rare diplomatic breakthrough.
