Riot puppet. To a split in the camp of the Syrian opposition

46
In the capital of Qatar, the regular summit of the League of Arab States (LAS) begins. The main issue to be discussed will, of course, be the conflict in Syria. And for the first time, representatives of the opposition will officially take the place of Syria at this summit, although this contradicts the charter of the Arab League itself. The eighth article of the Charter of the Arab League speaks of respect for the state structure that has developed in Arab countries and the inadmissibility of actions aimed at overthrowing existing regimes. But who will reckon with some formalities if they interfere?


Riot puppet. To a split in the camp of the Syrian opposition


Who interfere?

Yes, actually, to those to whom the “Arab Spring” owes its success, as well as to those who, thanks to it, gained power. And so only Sudan, Algeria and Iraq vote against the recognition of the opposition by the legitimate Syrian authorities, and Lebanon abstains. But the majority of votes in the Arab League has long been owned by them. In general, it would be strange if, after so many efforts made to redraw the political map of the Middle East and North Africa, Qatar and Saudi Arabia would not enjoy the fruits of their efforts. Not for this they sponsored a series of revolutions to depict objectivity in the Syrian issue.

But not everything goes so smoothly with the "friends of Syria." The other day, the head of the Syrian opposition Ahmed Muaz al-Khatib resigned, having spent only three months in this post. Why all of a sudden? Not at all. Al-Khatib hardly harbors illusions about the reality of the victory of opposition forces in Syria. But, unlike other leaders of the opposition forces, he was apparently not satisfied with the role of only puppets in the hands of the authors of the “Syrian revolution”. He could, of course, master sponsorship and do what they said. But it seems that al-Khatib had ambitions. From the very beginning, he tried to pursue an independent policy, which was contrary to the plans of the owners of the opposition. So in February, he declared his readiness to conduct direct negotiations with the Syrian Vice-President, with a view to finding a political, rather than a military settlement of the conflict. He also believed that the emergence of a provisional government (now being created by the puppet "government in exile") carries the risk of a split in the state. A few days before his resignation, he even allowed the possibility of addition weapons opposition forces. But such a statement does not fit into the plans of the owners and sponsors. Such independence could not arrange them at all and, naturally, could not remain without consequences.

And here in the leadership of the opposition a coup was arranged. On March 19, a meeting of the so-called National Coalition of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces (NKORS) was held in Istanbul. This organization was created by the “friends of Syria” with the goal of giving the bandits, who are fighting with the legitimate Syrian authorities, the appearance of unity and even some civilization. Well, so that the representatives of the bandits could appear before the public not hung up with a machine-gun belt, but in a suit. Actually, al-Khatib was considered the head of this organization. But in Istanbul, an inconvenient leader was found to be replaced - contrary to the opinion of al-Khatib, a “provisional government of Syria” was created, headed by Gassan Hitt, an American radical Islamist of Syrian origin. Naturally, it was with him supposed to maintain official contacts and consider the "legitimate" Syrian government. It is no less natural that he immediately rejected any contacts with official Damascus and proclaimed as his goal the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad.

It would seem that the control over the opposition has been restored, and timid attempts to start talking about a peaceful resolution of the conflict have ceased. But it was not there. Al-Khatyb resigned, and after him 12 of his supporters left NKORS. Yes, plus the so-called Free Syrian Army took and did not recognize Hitt! I had to play back - the resignation of al-Khatib was not accepted by the council of NKORS, he was asked to perform his duties for some time. Otherwise, the figure of Gassan Hitt looks like a very fiction. He was just transported across the Turkish border, so that he could pose in front of cameras in Syria, ostensibly inspecting some territories controlled by the militants. A confusion could have happened: Imagine that the militants would have met their new “leader” with the question “who are you?”

Total: we have to admit that attempts to change the power in Syria according to the scenario of Libya fail. Not only is it not possible to achieve military success, so also part of the armed militants begins to think about a dialogue with the legitimate authorities. And even attempts to return them “on the right path” are not quite successful. Even no one pays attention to the provocations of militants with chemical weapons - nobody simply believes the reports. And the appearance of the unity of groups opposing the legitimate authority becomes difficult to maintain - reality breaks through even through the thick curtain of the Western media.

It should be said that the only way to resolve the conflict in Syria is the peaceful dialogue of all interested parties, without the intervention of external forces. For such a dialogue need some conditions. First of all, this is the cessation of the supply of militants with weapons and money. But the termination of their support on the goodwill of sponsors - is considered unlikely. And here the Syrian army has to prove to the militants the futility of the armed struggle. While the flow of money and weapons is not stopped, it is difficult to force the bandits to peace. But by the way, you can still. At least some of them. And here the split of the opposition should be encouraged. Let the opposition take the place of Syria at the Arab League summit - today it is inevitable. But if something comes out of their mouth, even slightly different from the position of the sponsors of the civil war, this should be noted as a sound desire for peace and settlement. Such statements are already appearing in the camp of the opposition. And it seems this is just the beginning.

    I am amazed at the will and firmness of the "London dentist" - Bashar al-Assad. Few expected that he was able to hold out for 2 years, and now those who have fled from all over the world suddenly realize with surprise that a lion is fighting against them, not a lamb. You can watch "In the world of animals", in nature, in such cases, these creatures always yell loudly, call someone for help, and then squabble among themselves.

      Well, without Russia, Assad, with all due respect to him, would not have lasted so long. It is gratifying that we understand that, in fact, the Syrian army is now destroying our enemies and providing it with the necessary assistance. Only a blind person does not see what kind of porridge is brewing in that region. The huge money of oil pseudo-states, and in fact wild tribes, consists of unlimited human resources of the poor and wild Muslim world. And in the future we will have to eat this porridge, we will hand over Syria, and then Iran.

        Moaz al-Khatib, the leader of the opposition Syrian National Coalition, said he is stepping down.
        Khatib wrote on his Facebook page that he had promised the Syrians to leave if certain conditions were not met.
        According to observers, Khatib thus expressed dissatisfaction with the position of the world powers in relation to the Syrian conflict.
        The opposition resigned the day after foreign ministers of the European Union did not support the calls of Britain and France to lift the ban on the supply of weapons to Syrian rebels.
        Hasan Hitto, an American businessman of Syrian descent, was elected prime minister in rebel-controlled territories.
        "The destruction of Syria's infrastructure, the detention of tens of thousands of people, the transformation of hundreds of thousands [Syrians] into refugees and the rest of the suffering - all this was not enough for the international community to make a decision and allow people to protect themselves," the oppositionist complains.
        Doper itself - what they use
        At the same time, Sebastian Asher, a BBC analyst specializing in Middle East issues, emphasizes that the international community is worried about disagreements within the Syrian coalition, which could only get worse after Khatib left.
        Everything is true, it will be worse worse, it’s one thing that they thought they would quickly seize power, Assad will be hanged and let's cut the loot, but not all as an adult, you have to fight, fight with fighters devoted to your country, and as we see cool warriors, and led by a real Leader and A peasant, and no less importantly, that the population is loving and supportive of its rightful president

        Everything is clear right there, with the fall of the USSR, territories that were under the influence gradually began to be rejected, some on their own, some under the influence, for example, of the Arab Spring, towards another camp. We are losing and will lose territory until the clan system changes within the country. Democracy is strong when it works, not when people talk about it. The independence of the courts, the control of income and expenses, the elimination of corruption in the bud, the abolition of immunity, up to the prident and so on.

    The split is a split, and weapons and money are coming, people are being killed, and our snot chew instead of real help to Assad and smilingly are smiling at the Turks. We must decisively help Assad with weapons and ammunition. Khrushchev, though a bastard, was not afraid to support Castro and Nasser, as well as Ben Bella.

      That is, to admit the fallacy of his early point of view on the conflict?
      To inform the whole world community: we have rethinked everything coolly, and now we will in the world support those shitheads whom we consider our own.
      And how does this position differ from the position of the Anglo-Saxons?

        The position is fundamentally different, primarily in that it is about supporting the LAWFUL government of a friendly state (of which there are not many), and not some rabble collected from North African and Arab garbage dumps.

          Yes, the government is legal. But, apparently, the country still needs political reforms. Because the "conservation according to Assad" does not solve the problem.
          We look at what GDP says about this:

          Russia will be consistent in its foreign policy: “The principle is not to encourage the parties to the armed conflict, but to force them to sit at the negotiating table and agree on acceptable conditions to cease fire and end human casualties, move to political procedures and political reforms that would be acceptable to all parties to a political conflict"and would not lead the conflict into a dead end, would not lead to the fact that one side will completely destroy the other then."

          I agree with him. It is promising and far-sighted. And in relation to Russia, too. Extrapolate the situation to us. Hypothetically ...
          The outside, another state, has the right to decide who is right here and who is not? Do you personally want the Amers or Franks to get in here, deciding to support someone?
          I note that the BRICS countries, and this is 45% of the world's population, support the Russian position.

            In any case, Syria before the war and Syria after will be strikingly different. But, first of all, it is necessary to stabilize the situation, and it is Assad who can do this (the "stabilizer" from the terrorists from the FSA painfully gives off carrion). You don't think you need to wait for the Libyan scenario to come true, after which there will be no one to talk to and nothing about.

              To stabilize the situation with arms supplies, money, equipment, advisers to Assad? .. Hmm ... And give our geopolitical opponents a reason to shout everywhere, like: Russia pursues its selfish interests, and does not defend international law!
              If we don’t want to live in the Anglo-Saxon system, then at least something must be different from them. Not?
              I believe that we need to stand on the point of view where we stand, and which is agreed with the same China. The conflict in Syria is an internal matter of a sovereign state.
              If, thanks to this position, an open and large-scale intervention of the West does not take place, Assad will crush this Middle Eastern trash. And Russia will win in everything.
              And selective support of one side of the conflict is a strategic defeat, with a possible tactical victory.

                If! But unfortunately, various kinds of "guardians" are actively pushing the situation towards open external aggression (latent aggression is already taking place). And if it does start, it will be too late to appeal for peace and negotiations, and the supply shoulder is large, and the opposition will be very significant.

                  Syria is now more than another regional conflict. In fact, there is a struggle between Russia and China for the restoration of international law, the general rules of conduct that have been lost since Yugoslavia. You propose to sacrifice the entire world order for the tactical goal, the victory of Assad. Do you understand this?
                  This is the path of the world mess, and world blood. When any country that is able to provide external assistance to someone will provide it and push their interests. And the United States is following this path of erosion of sovereignty. Although, the states, as a state, do not really need this. The erosion of borders, the elimination of nationally oriented states is necessary for the global TNCs and the financial elite.
                  To join us in this game means to play for “Uncle” and against ourselves. Because, the next blurred and disappeared sovereignty may be ours, Russian.
                  In general, this conversation is very large and long. Probably not for this thread.

If they will seriously fight with us, then only for domination of the world. And the rest of the war like Chechnya in the West is not fools - they don’t have enough money, and we have more dofig’s anger and more.
                    And Assad is being helped, it has been fighting for 2 years, it’s not without reason that our ships have been constantly hanging around there lately.

                      Oh ho ho ...
                      I will try again, point by point and succinctly.
                      How did the conflict begin?
                      With massive anti-government unrest and unrest in various cities of Syria, directed against the country's president Bashar al-Assad.
                      One of the objective causes of unrest is interfaith contradictions.
                      In the 22 million population of Syria - 90% of Muslims, of which 80% are Sunnis, the rest are Alawites. There are also Kurds, Christians, etc.
                      For almost 50 years, the Alawite community (the Ba'ath Party) has ruled the country. They occupy the most important posts in the power of its institutions, the army, etc. Bashar al-Assad - the main Alawite.
                      Assad is fighting a breakthrough of various groups, striving not only to change the political system, but also to dump the Alawites. In general, the composition of the “fighters” with the regime is very heterogeneous and contradictory. The mass of groups, sometimes with opposite goals, and recently, also fighting among themselves.
                      To resolve such conflicts, if the state itself is not able to resolve it, there is a UN and its Security Council.
                      What is the point of view of Russia? We believe that it is necessary to adhere to the UN Charter prohibiting interference in the affairs of a sovereign state. Any intervention: military, political, diplomatic. In the UN Security Council, we have repeatedly voted for a ceasefire, the beginning of a dialogue between the parties and AGAINST the support of any side by any state.
                      America acts in the logic of a unipolar world - President Assad must leave! PMC.
                      The motivation for such a solution is understandable - the creation of a constantly smoldering, and at times flaring up conflict. It is in the spirit of a strategy of controlled chaos.
                      Fans of Syria’s power support by Russia here on this branch, in fact, offer a VARIANT of the American solution - to kill the entire motley audience with the Sunnis and preserve Assad’s rule. That is, not to resolve the inter-confessional conflict, but to freeze, postpone, postpone it. And in parallel, lovers of minus, offer to declare on the eve, about the following:
                      Russia refuses to adhere to the principles of the UN, does not recognize its Charter, international law and will continue to act on the basis of its own ideas about correctness and justice. We are all charters - fuck.
                      Okay, let's say. But, you can not be a little pregnant. If we deny the rules of the game agreed upon with all countries (the UN Charter, and the Security Council as an instrument), then tomorrow there will be lawlessness, which could well end with aggression, interference in Russian internal affairs.
                      Try to understand a simple thing. After almost a decade and a half, Russia returned to world politics in order to participate in the new multipolar construction.
                      Syria is a Russian diploma on the topic: "Principles of the XNUMXst Century World Order."

                        So you wrote a lot, but all by. The UN no longer solves anything, except for Russia in general no one follows the UN charters. The world passed into the sole rule of the United States, or you did not notice it, which is very strange. So Russia's position is to look for paragraphs and paragraphs in the UN charter, while the United States, NATO and their henchmen Arabs spit on the UN and its charters, pursue an impudent and undisguised aggressive policy to change unfit regimes. Your position will lead to those predictable actions when exactly the same fire breaks out in Russia, when bearded men with weapons come to your house, will you be scribbling complaints to the UN at this time? It’s time to understand either Russia is defending its interests, or tomorrow a fire will spread to us. The strong one understands only the same strength, and no matter how polite the truth is, he will only answer with a fist.

                        USA and Europe, thanks to the position of Russia and China in the UN Security Council, they cannot openly do ANYTHING with Syria already more than 1,5 years. If you do not see this, then this is very strange.
                        The main thing is to provide "AIR" they cannot! If there is still no air operation in Syria, then Assad will hold out.
                        In the world, if you read the foreign press, they already openly say: "... They broke their teeth about Russia."

                    Oh ho ho ...
                    I will try again, point by point and succinctly.
                    How did the conflict begin?
                    With massive anti-government unrest and unrest in various cities of Syria, directed against the country's president Bashar al-Assad.
                    One of the objective causes of unrest is interfaith contradictions.
                    In the 22 million population of Syria - 90% of Muslims, of which 80% are Sunnis, the rest are Alawites. There are also Kurds, Christians, etc.
                    For almost 50 years, the Alawite community (the Ba'ath Party) has ruled the country. They occupy the most important posts in the power of its institutions, the army, etc. Bashar al-Assad - the main Alawite.
                    Assad is fighting a breakthrough of various groups, striving not only to change the political system, but also to dump the Alawites. In general, the composition of the “fighters” with the regime is very heterogeneous and contradictory. The mass of groups, sometimes with opposite goals, and recently, also fighting among themselves.
                    To resolve such conflicts, if the state itself is not able to resolve it, there is a UN and its Security Council.
                    What is the point of view of Russia? We believe that it is necessary to adhere to the UN Charter prohibiting interference in the affairs of a sovereign state. Any intervention: military, political, diplomatic. In the UN Security Council, we have repeatedly voted for a ceasefire, the beginning of a dialogue between the parties and AGAINST the support of any side by any state.
                    America acts in the logic of a unipolar world - President Assad must leave! PMC.
                    The motivation for such a solution is understandable - the creation of a constantly smoldering, and at times flaring up conflict. It is in the spirit of a strategy of controlled chaos.
                    Fans of Syria’s power support by Russia here on this branch, in fact, offer a VARIANT of the American solution - to kill the entire motley audience with the Sunnis and preserve Assad’s rule. That is, not to resolve the inter-confessional conflict, but to freeze, postpone, postpone it. And in parallel, lovers of minus, offer to declare on the eve, about the following:
                    Russia refuses to adhere to the principles of the UN, does not recognize its Charter, international law and will continue to act on the basis of its own ideas about correctness and justice. We are all charters - fuck.
                    Okay, let's say. But, you can not be a little pregnant. If we deny the rules of the game agreed upon with all countries (the UN Charter, and the Security Council as an instrument), then tomorrow there will be lawlessness, which could well end with aggression, interference in Russian internal affairs.
                    Try to understand a simple thing. After almost a decade and a half, Russia returned to world politics in order to participate in the new multipolar construction.
                    Syria is a Russian diploma on the topic: "Principles of the XNUMXst Century World Order."

    President of the National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (NKSROS) Moaz al-Khatib surprised by the US refusal to provide a missile defense battery to the Syrian opposition, reports Interfax.
    "There is an international will not to let the revolution win," al-Khatib said at the opening of the coalition forces' embassy in the Qatari capital of Doha on Wednesday.
    He noted that he had previously asked the United States to provide the Patriot complex to protect citizens in Syria from missile attacks by government forces.
    "At a meeting with Kerry, I asked to make sure that the Patriot battery range covers the northern part of Syria. He promised to study this issue," al-Khatib said at the Arab League summit. He explained that it is about protecting the territories held by the opposition.

    One of the most important techniques in this situation is "divide and conquer". The conductors of the "revolution" make full use of it. Assad needs to strengthen the contradictions between them - to come up with proposals for negotiations to specific groups, ignoring others. Offer options for solving the problem, tasty for some parties, unacceptable for others.
    Of course, it is difficult, but such stuffing should go in a continuous stream. It’s impossible to reverse the situation by force and army alone; it’s difficult to ensure the supply of a belligerent army at the BDK for distant lands.
    We need, as the GDP likes to say, asymmetric options. It is desirable that they destroy themselves. This may be the solution to the problem. All this riffraff will quickly arrange a redistribution of power if he suspects that they may be pushed away from the feeder. This is the flag in their hands and you need to hand it all the time

    Qatar and the SA have almost succeeded in this, but they cannot finish the job. If we rely only on a military solution to the issue, it is difficult to expect good results. In this direction, Assad should be activated.

        You should, before unreasonably sticking labels, carefully read what is written, and catch the change in the meaning of the words in quotation marks, to the opposite.

        "The philologist Ouspensky sees in the preventive function the main purpose of quotation marks: the linguistic meaning of quotation marks is, first of all, in indicating that the word in quotation marks is used in some other (alien, metaphorical) sense than literal or generally accepted, and it is not indicated in what exactly..."

          The word order is of great importance in the sentence. But it happens that a poorly constructed proposal leads to a double meaning. The dual meaning of the sentence makes it difficult to understand. The task of the speaker or writer to express their thoughts clearly. The word order also helps him (including).

          By the example of your proposal, I understand the thought expressed in two ways (in short): "For the SSA or for the opposition."

          As already mentioned: "Express your thought unambiguously."

          I sincerely wish you the same success that you wished me.
