Mouncif Marzouki is now a fan of GCC "solutions"

"Mr Marzouki said he believed the best way forward would be to push for what he called a "Yemeni solution", where Syria's President Bashar al Assad, like Yemen's former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, would be given immunity from prosecution and encouraged to leave the country."  Why should any Arab dictator be given immunity?  Marzouki rightly accuses the Syrian president of perpetrating massacres but then calls for giving him immunity?  Secondly, the recipe of the GCC in Yemen basically preserves the regime and protects the dictator.  Is that what the Syrian people want?
