Syria: West rebuffs proposal to work with Iran to solve crisis | Citizens for Legitimate Government: Syria: West rebuffs proposal to work with Iran to solve crisis 08 Jun 2012 Efforts to forge a united international response to the [NATO-engendered] Syria crisis have been dealt a double blow as the West rebuffed a proposal to work with Iran and Russia rejected a new US peace initiative. With violence escalating in the wake of this week's massacre of 78 Sunni villagers near the city of Hama, Kofi Annan, the international envoy to Syria met Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, to try to salvage his disintegrating ceasefire plan. At least 20 people were killed on Friday as rebels foreign terrorists stepped up a week-long offensive to avenge the killings in Qubair, the fourth incident of mass bloodletting directed at members of Syria's Sunni majority in a fortnight.
