Syria Says Turkey Pressed Opposition to Reject Assad Proposal
2013-02-16
[An Nahar] Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad
Despoiler of Deraa...
's regime has sent a letter to the United Nations
...aka the Oyster Bay Chowder and Marching Society...
blasting Turkey's "destructive" role in the conflict that has ravaged Syria for the past 23 months, state media reported Friday.

The Syrian foreign ministry's letter accuses Turkey of harboring "faceless myrmidons from al-Qaeda's network", the SANA news agency said.

The ministry also accused Ankara of taking "increasingly hostile stances towards Syria, by blocking... measures taken by Damascus
...Capital of the last remaining Baathist regime in the world...
for a political solution to the crisis" that the U.N. says has left some 70,000 people dead.

The letter, published by SANA, also criticizes Turkey for "pressuring Syrian opposition members to refuse a political plan" proposed in a speech by Assad on January 9.
