Default International Syria envoy warns of surge in deaths

This title makes it sound like this Syrian Civil War could affect World Peace (like how many places are without death in this world, at least by Terrorists/Insurgents or those groups who are tied or are connected in why to many Countries.
Far to many terrorist actions or out right warfare, just a thought.) and it might well come close.

Yet one can see a few things in this Peace Offering, that other's from the Western Nations need to understand, more so thean what you will read. Plus at the site there are several links in this news story.

.International Syria envoy warns of surge in deaths

By By BASSEM MROUE | Associated Press – 8 hrs ago.

BEIRUT (AP) — The international envoy to Syria warned Sunday that as many as 100,000 could die in the next year if a way cannot be found quickly to end the country's civil war.

Lakhdar Brahimi, the U.N.-Arab League envoy for the Syrian crisis, told reporters in Cairo that if the crisis continues Syria will not be divided into states "like what happened in Yugoslavia" but will face "Somalization, which means warlords, and the Syrian people will be persecuted by those who control their fate."

Syrian rebels are fighting a 21-month-old revolt against President Bashar Assad's regime. Activists say more than 40,000 people have been killed in the crisis, which began with pro-democracy protests but has morphed into a civil war.

Since starting his job in September, Brahimi has sought to advance an international plan, reached in Geneva six months ago, that calls for an open-ended cease-fire between rebels and government troops and the formation of a transitional government to run the country until elections can be held.

Now just what is covered, and who is this transitional government?

Over the past week Brahimi went to Damascus where he met Assad then flew to Moscow, one of Syria's closest international allies, where he discussed ways of ending the country's crisis.

Now with Assad directly involved my faith in this plan would be, that needs a lot of lets think about it. Might be why it is 6 months old and how many has heard a thing about this plans till now! The games people play and the need to maintain some control.

"The situation in Syria is bad. Very, very bad," Brahimi said after meeting Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby. "It is getting worse and therefore if nearly 50,000 were killed in nearly two years if, God forbids, this crisis continues for another year, it will not only kill 25,000. It will kill 100,000. The situation is deteriorating."

Relate that any models/charts another words why make a strong statesment as above with out some facts.

The monthly death toll in Syria rose over the past months, as both sides have used heavier weapons and as the Syrian army started using its warplanes to attack rebel-held areas around the country.

And the fact that the Al-Qaida or a connected terrorist cell is already involved as quite a few have come to the aid from other locations to help the Rebels.

Brahimi said that peace and security in the world will be threatened directly from Syria if there is no solution within the next few months. "I warn of what will come. The choice is between a political solution or of full collapse of the Syrian state."
