French press: The no-fly zone could have led to the overthrow of Assad, but this did not happen

The European press is discussing the tenth anniversary of the so-called "Arab Spring" in Syria. It is recalled that on March 15, 2011, large-scale protests against Bashar al-Assad were held in Damascus. The head of state was demanded to resign immediately, and these demands were traditionally supported in Brussels and Washington.


The French edition of Le Figaro publishes an article stating that 10 years have passed since then, "and Assad continues to remain in his place."

French columnist:

Some of the opposition-minded Syrians left Syria, and some resigned themselves to the situation. Only radical Islamists today do not want to fold weapon... The country is in ruins. At the same time, the population was exhausted by the sanctions, about 10 million became refugees and displaced persons.

Assessing the situation on the day of the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the "Arab Spring" in Syria, the following is noted:

Bashar al-Assad won. In doing so, he must share his victory with his Russian and Iranian saviors. The rebels, who were confident that the West would save them by creating a no-fly zone over the country, felt abandoned.

It is noted that the no-fly zone over Syria could lead to the overthrow of Assad, but this did not happen.

European press:

First, Iran began to supply weapons to formations loyal to Bashar al-Assad, and then Russia also created its military base in Syria and sided with the current head of state.

Le Figaro cites a statement from a Syrian pro-government source who requested anonymity:

We all need to sit down at the negotiating table to find a solution: Russians, Americans, Iranians, Turks, the Gulf states, and even Israel.

On his own behalf, the French author writes that before the elections in Syria "there are no alarming expectations, since Russia makes it clear that it continues to stake on Assad."

    "Insurgents" are still supported by Washington and Brussels, the Turks are supporting theirs and together they are robbing Syria.

        I wish they could create such a zone over France ...

        And information from the SAR (among other things, requiring confirmation) about the "no-fly zone" created by the Russian contingent for the Israeli Air Force, which regularly attacked Syria.

        Russia lands Israeli pilots in Syria

        The Israeli military aircraft, recently, showed great activity over the airspace of Lebanon and near the borders of Syria, however, around midnight, for unknown reasons, satellite navigation over the territory of Israel, Lebanon and part of Syria suddenly stopped working, which is associated with the use of a powerful electronic suppression systems.
        Immediately, the Israeli pilots reported to the takeoff ambassador that they were not able to navigate and monitor the situation in the airspace over Syria and Lebanon, therefore, they were forced to urgently return to base.
        According to the conclusion of military experts from Tel Aviv, as a result of the powerful impact of an unidentified electronic warfare system, the GPS system was partially disabled, and for all aircraft at the same time.

        The radiation was so powerful that it blocked access to satellite communications at a distance of tens of kilometers.

          Previously, the start of American combat activity could be assumed when gps began to give out minimal changes in position; and to increase the traffic of emails from the bases nearby. And the activity of the Russian Federation is tracked by local gps glitches - civilized notams are issued regularly. Technology however ...

        Naturally. How is it, smelly, bastard Russia with bears and balalaikas, together with Iran, pulled out such a tidbit from its mouth when it was only necessary to chew and swallow it ... And now there are different Anglo-Saxons and all the most civilized of civilized countries the only thing left to do is to drool over the fact that it was not possible to rob another country. How so, now because of this the crisis is unfolding ...

      There is nothing special to plunder. Both are trying to reduce the costs of supporting the bandits by stealing Syrian oil. Otherwise, it will be completely painful, they are eating up a lot of money, but what's the point? Assad sat and sits. And is not going anywhere tongue

      And what does the USA have to do with it? Or does the fact that they, like in their Wild West, have “staked out a plot” on the territory of the SAR, gives them the right to participate in the negotiation process?

      Okay - Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Israel, these are neighbors. AND Americans, WHO?

          Interesting precedent you indicated yes good

          It appears so. what .. Russia is gathering a "round table" from the neighbors of the Outskirts (but without it, just like you designated the negotiations on the ATS without her participation and taking into account her interests ), The United States does not cannibalize here, for there is no direct military force here, and decides the fate of the Outskirts fellow

          What? And the neighbors, some of them may be satisfied ... Someone and the territory may fall. How will they agree yes

            In fact, so ..... in relation to Ukraine, everything could be so. If we take the example of Turkey and the United States, then also the bases of the Russian Armed Forces, about 10 pieces with airfields and no-fly zones on the floor of Ukraine, should be a reality. And here the point is only in the position of the Russian Federation on this issue. Nobody asks the patient.

          The United States plays an exclusively destabilizing role in this region. Proceeding from this, the mattresses had already been rolled out earlier in the sense that they were not invited to participate in the Astana negotiations, where Russia, Turkey, Iran and Syria were represented, including a delegation of Kurds. It seems that in the future all issues related to the settlement of the Syrian conflict will be held in the same format. In the best case, the mattresses will be assigned the role of observers. winked

              and have their goals and provide them. Whether someone likes it or not.

              For the most part, nobody likes it. At the negotiating table there can be regionals and those who are there legally by invitation, or in agreement with the legitimate authorities of Syria. As you know, mattresses are outlawed there, and therefore they are "no one to call them", except perhaps only as occupation forces, which rely on barmaley and Kurds. There may be some changes to the Kurds in terms of loyalty to mattresses, depending on what role and what status they will receive in the new Constitution of Syria, which is currently being drafted by a joint group, including Kurdish representatives. The American enticement about the creation of an independent Kurdistan has actually vanished and is unlikely to be possible in the future, in view of the opposition of all regionals, and the Kurds may well be satisfied with the status of "autonomy", which can already be regarded as a breakthrough to self-determination and partial independence from the center. If this happens, the mattresses there will not be fun at all, since the situation may take the form of Afghan years of being locked up at bases with regular shelling and terrorist attacks. Somehow there are no strategic benefits request

Russia introduced the wrong one ... and oh mein Gott Bashar wins ... and maybe peace will come, which is generally unacceptable, because such masses of bandits can be disposed of only by the method of the Nazis ... otherwise what to do with them

    Half of the list should be crossed out. They have nothing to do there. And with the barmaley it is necessary to negotiate only with those who will cooperate with the investigation. That is, after unconditional surrender and surrender.

    Le Figaro Franchi (Germany) themselves are great hypocrisy. Useless NATO zone means the final death of the state which NATO has PLAN TO DESTROY! Only Russia has the ability today to make a no-fly zone in Syria, and it must do it! We must learn from other people's mistakes !!! When the Serbs liberated Drach on the Adriatic from the Turks in 1912 (today Albania), England, Franks, Germans, Habsburgs immediately put pressure on the Serbs to leave and then GARBAGE made an artificial nation and the state of Albania !!! If then Serbs sent garbage where necessary 1. World War would start in 1912, if Drach, Skadar and Valona would belong to Serbia at the end !!! 2 years in between did not bring anything to the Serbs, only GUSR managed to carry out its plans in the Balkans. The same thing in Syria, eats time to wait and eats time when you need to bring the RIGHT DECISIONS !!! Gave a no-fly zone over Syria to be made or not now?
