The people of Syria should move fast to peace and not become smothered in temporary truces and in any lengthy and drawn out processes to peace.
The basic perimeters to peace are already in place and exterior pressures from Russia to prolong Bashar al Assad's length of stay in Damascus must be rebutted on the explicit grounds that Assad's presence spells strife, conflict, death, insecurity and division in the Levant.
Therefore, Syrians must not delay peace. They should not accept any peace as being temporary. Rather, Syrians must move ahead with international guidance and assistance to build and develop institutions designed to serve and to govern the people by people. It is within these institutions that good governance of the people could be achieved and where protection from the events of the last five years could be installed.
