Syrian Crisis Solution: Britain Suggests Safe Exit for Assad

November 8, 2012  •  From theTrumpet.com
 

British Prime Minister David Cameron has floated the idea of a safe exit, with possible immunity from prosecution, for embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In an interview on Tuesday with Al-Arabiya television in the United Arab Emirates, the British premier responded in a desperate tone to a question on what to do if Assad asked for a safe exit: “Done. Anything, anything to get that man out of the country and to have a safe transition in Syria.” Even though Cameron still would “favor [Assad] facing the full force of international law and justice for what he’s done,” the prime minister has indicated clear support for an arranged exit. “I am certainly not offering him an exit plan to Britain,” Cameron said, “but if he wants to leave, he could leave. That could be arranged.”
