Odds stacked against fragile peace in Syria

12.05.2013 19:26

For anyone who has been critical of the Western narrative on Syria, the ongoing diplomatic circus begs a very basic question: How can countries which have bankrolled and armed the insurgency honestly broker a meaningful peace deal? Well, they can’t.

Besides plans to eventually implement a no-fly zone (repetition of the Libya war strategy), there will no doubt also be calls for a 'humanitarian' military intervention by Western powers and allied states such as the U.S., Britain, France, Israel, Turkey, Jordan, etc., however in reality this is akin to an arsonist calling themselves a fire fighter. The covert escalation of the Syrian conflict by these states has contributed significantly to worsening the crisis. But this was a key strategic objective as destabilisation operations generally precede direct military operations.

P3. As their covert proxy war/regime change operations have largely failed, this 'negotiated resolution' is likely disingenuous (deceit). The U.S. request for Russia to halt the transfer of anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria during recent talks on a 'diplomatic resolution' (that is inconsistent with U.S. sponsored actions) is no coincidence. These anti-aircraft systems would significantly compromise any eventual military intervention.

P2. The U.S. maintaining a fundamentally inflexible position of demanding regime change means that a 'diplomatic' resolution is unlikely. They are also increasing their support of militant groups (and efforts to prevent Russian arms from reinforcing the Syrian government).

P1. It may be that recent manoeuvres by the U.S. (of disingenuous 'diplomatic resolution' rhetoric) is intended as a seeming concession to Russia in an attempt to manipulate Russia into cancelling contracts for advanced anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria. "Israel has warned the United States that Russia plans to sell sophisticated missile systems to Syria that would complicate any foreign intervention there" (US is warned of Russia arms sale to Syria: report, May 09, 2013)

If this truth doesn't trash Clinton's election chances, nothing will.
