U.N. Chief Calls for Immediate End to Syria Fighting


U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday called on all warring parties in Syria to stop fighting immediately, saying there is no military solution to the conflict.

"The military option cannot be a solution. The violence must stop immediately," Ban told reporters in Kuwait City after talks with Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Sabah.

"This is totally an unacceptable situation. We cannot let the situation continue this way," Ban said.

Ban also said that all problems should be resolved "through a political process."

Earlier U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said that Ban has formally warmed Syrian President Bashar Assad against using chemical weapons in the country's civil war.

U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said the letter was handed to Syrian authorities on Tuesday.

There is no politican process ya Ban. Bashar wants to stay until 2014. Then he wants elections where he will be the only living candidate. He will not go to a neutral location for any talks. Three different negotiators/observers have tried.

The only solution is war in this case because an animal only understands one thing. Kill or be killed.
