"We're nowhere near that yet!"

"...Abdelbaset Sieda, speaking in a telephone interview with The Associated Press, said the opposition is making "serious" preparations and consultations to announce a transitional government, but admitted it is not imminent.
On Monday, French President Francoise Hollande called on the Syrian opposition to form a provisional government, saying France would recognize it. But Hollande's statement, believed to be the first of its kind, was quickly shot down by U.S. officials who said it was premature to speak about a provisional government when Syria's fractured opposition hasn't even agreed yet on a transition plan.
The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly on the matter, cited persistent disagreements among the Syrian National Council and rival opposition groups, and between Syrian opposition figures campaigning outside the country and rebels fighting the Assad regime on the front line.
"We're nowhere near that yet," one U.S. official said.
Sieda said the U.S. comments show the international community was not ready not ready" to take decisive decisions when it comes to Syria...."

In our world there are two types of people; followers
or leaders. Leaders usually are few percentage in our
plant, and to have a good leader it needs a lot of gut.
These people in the Arab world can and will not be able
to reach to the level of leaderships .
A leader ( Dr. Bashar Assad ) who opened the doors for those to leave Syria are a bunch of people who only care for money, and the good people of Syria will not honor or listen to them regardless if they are inside syria or outside.
