Peace in Their Time

From Yahoo News:
Annan says Syria accepts peace plan, fighting enters LebanonBEIJING/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria has accepted a ceasefire and peace plan drawn up by U.N. and Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan, his spokesman said on Tuesday, even as Syrian troops thrust into Lebanon to battle rebels who had taken refuge there.
The headline sounds like a modern day version of "Chamberlain says Hitler accepts peace plan, Germany invades Poland."  Certainly Assad does not have the means or inclination to launch a global war as Hitler did, but let us hope Annan and other negotiators do not have the gullibility or naivety of Chamberlain either.
