This is excellent article written by a very wise 91-year-old man who knows a thing or two about diplomacy, conflict resolution, peace, and negotiation. This is also currently the number one most emailed article in the NY Times. So, lots of people sharing this with others. I certainly hope world leaders, and especially those from the 5 nations he mentions, will seriously consider his recommendations for a solution to the present crisis in this region of the world.
The United States, Turkey and Saudi Arabia should join with Russia and Iran to develop a peace plan for Syria.
