United Nations - Envoys from India, Brazil and South Africa are heading to Syria to appeal for an end to the violent crackdown and to promote democratic reforms.

India's UN Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri said his country's representative is scheduled to arrive in Damascus on Tuesday and will join representatives from Brazil and South Africa for a meeting with Syria's foreign minister to deliver the appeal.

Puri told reporters on Monday the three countries will be "calling for restraint, abjuring violence, (and) promoting reform, taking into account the democratic aspirations of the people".

Separately, Turkey, until recently a close Syrian ally and major trade partner, said it is sending its foreign minister to Damascus on Tuesday to deliver a strong message against the crackdown.

      Its amazing when americans occupy a muslim country to actually free them and help them they are willing to strap bombs to themselves and kill american soldiers trying to help them - so why not strap bombs to themselves and kill Bashar and his cronies!!

      Occupy is the operative word. All people throughout history have resisted occupation by foreigners. When has amerika freed anyone, you watch too many holywood movies. Opening up a country to corporate plunder is not freedom.

      Kunta-Kinte - theres a difference between temporary occupation to help a people and permanent occupation like the nazi's did - you my friend need to understand this difference. USA has army bases in Germany, Japan, S Korea - do you see these people strapping bombs to themselves? In any event you dont answer the question why they dont use the same bombs and blow up their evil leaders! What is there to plunder in Afghanistan? A country thats a SH!tHole! Canada and Norway has oil why doesnt the US plunder there? Nigeria and Angola has oil why dont they plunder there? Saudi Arabia has oil why dont they plunder there? You buddy need to take off your blinkers and stop listening to the hatred your moulana spills at jumma.

      Kunta-Kinte "When has amerika freed anyone, you watch too many holywood movies" Who you think saved the muslims in kosovo and bosnia? Muslim armies? no buddy it was NATO and the USA!

      Lets see, Kosovo, the Germans had been telling amerikans to fukc off from their country,after the fall of communism hence bondsteel and Kosovo, the biggest US military base outside the US. Afghanistan, how about circling Iran and cutting off gas supply routes from Russia. Japan and Korea are frontline states against China. Nigeria has been fukced politically and economically by western corporations, a former colony ffs. It is being plundered as we speak. Saudi Arabia is a US client state, it is the country that agreed to quote their oil in dollars thereby giving the $ its reserve currnecy status. Norway and Canada are part of NATO, and caucasian, are you that ignorant. You're not clued up on geo-politics are you?

      Yet, Kunta, you brandish a Kalashnakov and would deny Libyans the basic human right to vote for their leaders. This is the true "occupation" of people, by dictators who oppress them, which you unashamedly support. It doesn't make sense.

      Kunta-Kinte The politics of a radical======CONFUSION

      Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-09 19:46

      Well, he did last year: "head of government elected by the General People's Congress; election last held in March 2010"

      Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-09 19:50

      Anton you are clearly clueless, you haven't refuted not a single of my points but revert to you incoherent nonsense as mentioned by Onset on another thread. Slg you are just a broken record.

      GonnyVonYuri - 2011-08-09 22:16

      Kunta-Kinte - you're brainwashed by your moulana clearly - Possibly the largest US Base outside the US - 55 000 troops (excl Afghanistan) : Bondsteel - largest in the Balkans - i give up you brainwashed radicals who have hatred and evil in your hearts and do not really want peace : "Camp Bondsteel has many facilities on base for use by the soldiers... and can hold up to 7,000 soldiers which makes it the largest US base in the Balkans." :

      GonnyVonYuri - 2011-08-09 22:16

      The only reason they are in the Balkans is to save muslism who were being slaughtered by Milosovic

      GonnyVonYuri - 2011-08-09 22:19

      Kunta-Kinte "Norway and Canada are part of NATO, and caucasian, are you that ignorant." Arabs and Middle Eastern people are caucasian too - you totally have lost credibility now . USA is a multicultural country - a BLACK man is their PRESIDENT for godsake sake take off your blinkers!
