I’ve recently read the news about US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stating that the Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad’s regime is about to end. The fact of the matter is that 17,000 Syrians have died in the terrorist crackdown of president Al-Assad in Syria in trying to crack down the ‘terrorists’ or political enemies of the state, namely the Syrian opposition and the Free Syria Army.
US Special Envoy Kofi Annan has employed a peaceful solution with a six-point peace plan. However, the Syrian regime may have accepted the offer, but still, there are many obstacles for the plan to pull through. The conflict is not just in the regime, but also in the Syrian opposition.
I’d call all of them hooligans.
For one thing, I’ve read in the recent news that, after meeting and in the protection of the Arab kingdom, the Syrian opposition refused the call to a national unified government. Annan states that this government is to grant seats to both the Assad cabinet and Syrian opposition.
The opposition states that they cannot work with the Assad regime because they cannot work with people that have “blood on their hands”.
The thing is, as if they didn’t have blood on their hands as well.
One of the reasons the conflict cannot end is because one side thinks that it’s smarter or more ruthless than the other. UN secretary-general Ban Ki Moon was correct to say that the conflict is becoming more sectarian in nature and more humanitarian rights are about to be broken. If one or both parties have this particular mindset, probably, the entire thing of diplomacy is bollocks.
When both sides think they’re right and leave no room for compromise, how can they achieve piece? By decimating the other party?
The Syrian regime states that last December, they’ve held an election for the purpose of allowing opposition to have seats in the house. However, they state that only few members of the opposition were able to win. At least that’s what the news says, but given their power, they have the ability to fix a vote, which makes the entire thing insignificant.
There is still a long ways to go before Syria finally manages to end its problems. But discussing with guns rather than language is a charlatan’s method. And they’re all charlatans til they can learn to accept the matter at hand that they need to help each other.
