AL JAZEERA

Article “Friends of Syria’: Annan plan is last hope” reports:

“Every day that passes means tens of new Syrian civilian deaths,” said Alain Juppe, the French foreign minister, as he read out the conclusions of the meeting.

“It is not time to prevaricate. It is time to act. Though fragile, the [Kofi] Annan mission represents a last hope,” the statement said.

“If this were not to happen … the UN Security Council and international community would have to look at other options.”

WATCHDOG: We think he meant “It is not time to procrastinate” rather than “prevaricate.” Politicians can find time for the latter.

"....I have never made it a consideration whether the subject was popular or unpopular, but whether it was right or wrong; for that which is right will become popular, and that which is wrong, though by mistake it may obtain the cry or fashion of the day, will soon lose the power of delusion, and sink into disesteem." Thomas Paine, Common Sense, on "Financing the War", March 5, 1782
