Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has requested a list of "terrorist organizations" in order for him to take part in upcoming peace talks. But what about his own regime, responsible for 300,000 deaths since 2011? Muallem's demand is stomach-churning and illegitimate, particularly as it coincides with international shock over horrifying images of starving citizens in the besieged Syrian city of Madaya.
Assad's regime is the source of all terror. Without establishing such fact and then acting accordingly, Syria's nearly five-year-old war will not come to an end.Raed Omari
