The results of the Geneva talks on Syria depend on whom you ask.

What Muslim on this planet wouldn't want to see Iran acquire nuclear weapons to defend their oil/sovereignty? A lackey being paid by paper dollars.
"Syrian Citizen," as your remarks merely reflect the point of view of the western mainstream media, what reason is there to believe you are really Syrian? We've seen such hoaxes before, like the "Girl in Damascus" blogger who was just an American guy putting out disinformation.
I think Russia, acting very wise, in this case, because west in the main problem in this war.
It makes me angry how the author and the commentators are discussing the issue as if Al-Assad is the beloved angel of all the Syrian people, and the only reason he's in trouble is the "armed terrorists backed by the US".The guy is a criminal who has inherited the power from his dictator father, and together with his criminal family helped destroying the infrastructure, economy and the morals of Syrians for over 40 years.It's not true that the Syrian opposition leans towards US but we, Syrian people, have certainly started hating Russia for its position towards our revolution.We know US doesn't care about our rights and freedom but so do you, so please stop acting as if it's not your own interests that is driving your attitude towards Syria.Best thing Russians can do? Just stop backing up the murderer.
Israel lobby pushing Syrian regime change to weaken Iran (my RT 'Crosstalk' interview on Syria linked via youtube at following article about such still applies!): http://tinyurl.com/j amesmorrisoncrosstal k
"... For Russia, once again falling into Washington’s trap will have dire consequences. On the international arena, Moscow loses precious credibility with its strategic allies, with Iran in particular. Geopolitically, Syria’s fall will speed up American’s relentless push across the Middle East into the Caucasus and Central Asia, consolidating its infrastructure on Russia’s southern military front and putting a definitive end to the prospects of the Eurasian Union. ..."Verily so.The “falling into Washington's trap”, however, would be much better described as the (current) Russian government's own doing, the only possible result of its incoherent foreign policy. On one hand, it would be to protect Russian geopolitical interests, supposedly. While on the other, it would be to profit from its bizarre “partnership” with the nemesis of the Russian people. “It”, of course, are the rich oligarchs, represented by Medvedev & Co., the “elite” that is dying to be admitted to the western club, craving westernisation at any cost. With the WTO membership, the NATO base in Lenin's birthplace that is “not a base”, and so on, one would not at all be surprised if it now transpired that in fact Syria too has been up for sale all along (just like Libya was), and that all that loud protesting was merely to raise the price of the “merchandise”.
It may not be such a great loss if Syria ends up controlled by the US / NATO. Syria is divided between loyalists and the opposition which seems to be US-leaning. It is very hard to defend a country when the US is supplying the traitors with plenty of weapons. Also, if the country is contaminated with traitors, it may not be worth defending. I'm not being uptight or purist. Just like you wouldn't drink from a glass mixed with toilet water. It is very sensible.The only winning option for us (who are not US citizens) is to stop loving any country / nationality. As long as we allege to a nationality, and if that nationality is not the US, then we have automatically painted ourselves into a losing position.Even if the US succeeds in controlling the Middle East region, it is expanding resources to control it, but the overall advantages of this control may be very limited, maybe overall it is even a negative expenditur e, having to constantly suppress a hostile majority in the population.The important point is that even if we lose the imperialistic game, this game itself may not be very significant. We can win bigger if we win the economic game, and this latter game is now global and blind to national boundaries.
I often ask myself how humanity manages to get into these scenarios and then i asked myself why does America and it Zionist masters want to control the world and well i came to the conclusion that they are like a lion, the lion takes over a pride and kills off or drives out any opposition even the other lions cubs are killed this is in there nature and so too is total domionation in the nature of humanity you see the only reason we feel angry about it is because we have a soul that can tell right from wrong but you see the world around us is created to feed the nature of humanity and as such i came to the conclusion that humanity and this world will not change as a whole but individual overcoming their nature can change and in 1000 years time there will be other people probably posting some comment somewhere complaining that some evil empire needs to be destroyed when really it is the people and humanity thats needs to change and overcome its primal ways.
If Syria is Russia's or Iran's client state, then the solution to the Syrian problem issimply, for Moscow or Teheran, or jointly, to ask Bashar Al-Assad to go with political assylum granted to any country he wish.Mos cow and/or Teheran should just do their behind-the-scenes work to sound out those alongside Bashar Al-Assad - especially the generals - about the idea. If agreeable, then Moscow and Teheran should publicly warn Bashar to go or Russian and/or Iran will send troops into Syria.Th e best solution it appears, is a friendly Moscow/Teheran initiated coup. With the help of Syrian generals of course.M r Larov, consider this out-of-the-box proposal. Let Bashar go ... he is a bl**dy murderer of his own people using armed troops and tanks and artillery. A psychopath!L et the generals do an "Egypt". Invite all the generals to Moscow or Theran for a "pow-wow". Bashar not included. Let the generals do their own peaceful coup. Reasonableness does not work with that bl**dy manic Bashar.N on UN Self-Appointed Peace Envoy
