    Of course the Syrians are not listening, they are saying whatever they have to say to placate the international community but are not changing their policies on the ground.

    Syria has a very long history of verbally excepting peace plans and continuing violence. It's pretty much standard procedure for the Assad regime (and his dad). This time, the world isn't turning a blind eye.

    I hope Assad goes. Even if the secular Baathist state is replaced by an Sunni Islamic state, it won't be worse than the status quo. In Egypt, you had some fear that a populist uprising would undo the Camp David Accords. But Syria is a state that has constantly exploited the Palestinian problem and antagonized Israel in an attempt to hold onto any semblance of legitimacy.

    Every country in the Middle East pretty much does the same thing, they will tell the international community whatever they want to hear but on the ground they change nothing, Iran does the same type of lying and Saddam also did that alot during the 90's these countries will promise you the sun, the moon and the stars but will not change a damn thing.
