In the aftermath of the Geneva II conference last week in Montreux, Switzerland, which the British and Obama ensured would fail by having their Syrian “opposition” puppets insist on demands that are known to be unacceptable to the Syria government, tensions are again being ratcheted up, which could easily lead to regional war.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry pressured Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the Munich Security Conference to press the Syriam government into speeding up the removal of chemical weapons. The US says only about 4% of chemical weapons declared by the Syrian government have so far been removed. Syria’s chemical weapons are due to be removed and destroyed by June 30. BBC is mooting the possibility of sanctions against Syria, due to the purported “delays.”
UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi told a panel on Syria at the Munich conference: “We have failed somewhere. We can say it is an intractable problem, it is difficult. But somewhere there is a failure.” However, Brahimi said he hoped the talks would resume in Geneva on Feb. 10 in a “more constructive” mood.
