Syria: Arab League peace mission on verge of collapse

The Gulf Co-operation Council, which represents Saudi Arabia and the other oil-rich Gulf monarchies, said it was convinced that “the bloodshed and the killing of innocent people there is continuing”.

Its decision furthers the growing international divide over Syria between Western-supporting states and a loose anti-western coalition involving Iran, Syria’s closest ally, but also Russia, Lebanon, Algeria and Iraq, who have opposed action against Damascus.

Syria’s foreign minister, Walid al-Moallem, said the government was considering whether to allow the mission to continue – something it had previously indicated it would accept. He said Syria now “rejected” Arab solutions to its internal crisis, after the League on Sunday demanded President Bashar al-Assad accept a unity government with the opposition followed by free elections within six months.

He claimed the League had deliberately put forward a peace plan it knew would be rejected by Damascus as a pretext to “internationalise” the situation, adding that “half the universe” was involved in a plot against the country”.

Some Bikers Are the Good Guys


A group of bikers was riding into Key West when they saw a girl about to jump off the Cow Key Channel bridge, so they stopped.  

The leader, a big burly man, got off his bike and said, “What are you doing?”

“I’m going to commit suicide,” she said.

While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn’t want to miss a golden opportunity so he asked,

“Well, before you jump, why don’t you give me a kiss?”

So she did and it was a long, deep lingering kiss.

After she finished, the biker said;

“Wow! That was the best kiss I’ve ever had. That’s a real talent you âre wasting. Why are you, such a beautiful young thing with such a passion for romance, even thinking of committing suicide?”

“My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl.”

Then the biker threw him off the bridge!
