Your choices: continue a campaign to restore order in Homs which is admittedly overrun by cross-border militants and foreign terrorists operating with NATO support and arms, fighting under the banner of the "Free Syrian Army." Or, spend your time instead purposefully killing women and children in front of British and French journalists before plotting over easily-intercepted radios their spectacular deaths in front of a watching world?
According to a recent report published by the Arabic Nakhel news agency, the Salafists have been stationed in Mafraq and Ramtha under the “pretext of receiving medical treatment” in Jordan.
The report also mentioned one of the reasons behind the resignation of former Jordanian Prime Minister Marouf Suleiman al-Bakhit on October 17, 2011.
Bakhit had disagreed that Jordan join the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council because the council required that the Jordanian territory be used against foreign countries “including Syria.” Bakhit had refused to agree to the Arab requirement despite pressures from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United States, Nakhel said.
Meanwhile, Russia has announced that it would not take part in the conference.
Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov on February 22 described the absence of Syrian officials at the 'Friends of Syria' conference as a big blunder by its organizers.

They steal all material wealth and then some. They systematically rob investors and strip mine economies for self-enrichment. They demand they get paid first. They hold nations hostage to assure it. They turn crises into catastrophes. They leave mass impoverishment, high unemployment, neo-serfdom, and human wreckage in their wake.
Gasoline prices have already increased by more than 10 percent over the last two months, following the increase in global oil prices, according to a report published on the CNN website said on Thursday.
According to the report, several factors, including supply disruptions in a number of oil producing nations, have caused the prices of the energy source to rise, leading in return to a similar increase in the prices of such oil byproducts as gasoline.
“But the biggest factor [behind the oil price upsurge] by far, say analysts, is fear that tensions with Iran will lead to an all-out war that causes a disruption in oil supplies,” the report said.
