Syrian 'opposition' conference in Paris attracts...25 people

25 people have attended the 'opposition' conference in Paris, rendering it a total failure.

The number was far below even the most conservative estimates. Most of the 25 were Kurdish separatists.

The "National Forum for Democratic Dialogue" quickly spiraled into agenda driven secular politics. Not a single non-Syrian dignitary attended the conference, something they would need to give the meeting international legitimacy.

The meeting had been postponed twice before, because not enough people could be persuaded to attend.

After the liberation that shalaby brought to Iraq Syrian should be allert to the change that the US and the so called oppositin are planning,I hope the Surians are smarter evolution is best for Syria not a revolution,naim

Haha... which opposition is this exactly?

Can the opposition even be properly classified as a single entity :-p

This is kind of sad. But kind of funny.
