The High Negotiations Committee(HNC) - the umbrella group of Syria's political and armed opposition parties, has unveiled a plan for a political transition to end five years of war in Syria.
As reported by the BBC-News earlier this morning, the HNC has proposed holding six-months of negotiations with the Bashar al Assad government which would be coupled by a full ceasefire.
The Syrian Opposition then plans Assad to hand over power to a unity government that would govern Syria for 18 months and organize new elections. However, the peaceful transfer of power from Assad remains a major variable to the plan Syrian transition for Assad and Russia apparently have had no inclination nor plan to relinquishing control over Damascus.
Therefore, for the HNC plan for a political transition in Syria to work, Western nations might have to boost military support to the rebels. Whatever steps are needed to ensure a political transition of power in Syria should be taken in order to end the execution of the Syrian war and the prolonged embarrassment to modern humanity.
