Report: Cameron Calls for Coup by Syrian Army

British Prime Minister David Cameron has called on members of Syria's army and other security forces to overthrow the government of President Bashar Al-Assad, according to a Friday report by the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper. He promised, in return, that they would not be prosecuted for their slaughter of the Syrian people.

Cameron was reportedly fed up with the inability of the G-8 economic powers to reach agreement on the need for Assad to leave, which is why he opened the diplomatic initiative aimed at people close to the Syrian president.
