The Syrian President, Bashar Al-Assad, is once again promising to put an end to the violence in Syria after over a year of bloodshed that has killed more than 9,000 civilians. This comes as part of his acceptance of UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan’s six-point peace plan. While the plan calls for a number of humanitarian demands, it leaves out the obvious request for Assad’s final departure. Bashar’s brutal crackdown in the past year makes it difficult to believe his regime will be thoroughly honoring its obligations.
