Kofi Annan was asked by the United Nations (UN and Arab League (AL) to work out a peace plan for Syria. Kofi Annan adds to his series of failed attempts at mediation (and that was already the case in Yugoslavia, which should not be forgotten) with a further failed attempt at mediation, and reinforces his reputation by this failed attempt in Syria – if you want to fuck up something, just call Kofi Annan.
The plan by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, that had included six primary points to end the armed conflict in Syria, was torpedoed from the beginning. The Syrian government in Damascus stressed several times that they are interested to implement the points of this so-called peace plan for Syria.
On the other side, much more forces tried to destroy this plan from the first minute, because this plan was not really helpful to achieve the aims of the armed militias and for the useful creation, the “Syrian National Council” (SNC), based in Istanbul. Both are useful tools for the operators in the background.
The ceasefire, which was envisaged in the six-point plan, could not be implemented due to the attacks of the Syrian army, as everybody is able to read this in the mainstream media of the NATO countries, of course.
However, the Syrian army was rather on the defensive than at an offensive at this time. Of course, it would be surprising to read the real reasons for the failed six-point plan by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan in the Western media.
The gunmen and armed militias, among are Islamists, criminals, mercenaries and even idiots (pardon the word), which are funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, while they are also upgraded (weapons, equipment, ammo) by some other countries, have far more interest in spreading of chaos in Syria than the Syrian government and its forces.
For the Syrian government in Damascus, the implementation of the six-point plan by Kofi Annan would have been positive. But especially the armed opposition forces within Syria, e.g. the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), and the external Syrian opposition, have always railed against this six-point plan by Kofi Annan and have announced bluntly to continue their armed struggle until the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has resigned or will be overthrown. Not to mention that for some opposition figures the opinion prevails, that a dead Assad is surely the better Assad.
That the armed fighters of the Western-backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and the other armed militias, among are some jihadists, Islamists, mercenaries and the common criminals, who want to benefit from the current situation, stop at nothing, one is able to see again and again in the reports about the dead, injured, kidnapped, and abused people in Syria.
In addition, more and more friends and contacts in Syria report cruel stories about the horrible experiences of family members or friends, which suffered or still suffer under the radical gunmen of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) or under the rest of these Western-backed fighters in Syria. It does not make a difference.
But the world, many governments, still willfully closes up their eyes to the truth. And why not, a weakened or even destroyed Syria is the prelude and an optimal condition for the beginning of the so long planned campaign (war) against Iran.
After several rounds of negotiations in nice rooms and some massacres in Syria, Kofi Annan finally has declared his plan as failed. What a surprise. Others would say that his plan was already doomed to fail – even from the very beginning. Thus, there are similarities between the so-called peace plan by Kofi Annan and the results of the conference in Geneva.
The external Syrian opposition and the armed opposition forces and other criminal structures in Syria are not interested in. Thus, these sides want to further maintain the armed struggle against the Syrian army and the government in Damascus, by all means. This is not surprising, as stated. That they destroy their allegedly home country and also injure and kill Syrian civilians seems not to matter.
Thus, as usual, the West seems to back the “correct side”. Afghanistan, Somalia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Libya and other examples have shown this support for the “correct” and “very democratic” side already. Of course, finally the West is not interested in a real democracy in Syria and it is also questionable whether these Western governments are interested in peace in Syria.
Their machinations behind the curtains show another side. The realization of Kofi Anna is a belated realization and if he would not be Kofi Annan, some would put his brain into question. At least, this belated realization will probably cause that he receives further criticism.
After all, the plan has served the interests of the West and Gulf States like Qatar and Saudi Arabia to upgrade the terrorists with weapons and ammo, and to spread their guerrilla fights in Syria. For the first time (and somebody could ask him, why now and not earlier) Kofi Annan speaks about the points which were concealed until now: the so-called rebels get weapons.
The countries, which send weapons in the arms of the rebels, are not mentioned, of course. So far, no country has openly admitted the supply of weapons to the militias in Syria, but it is sure, a fact, that they receive weapons. Weapons which are also used to commit murder at civilians, and weapons which are becoming more modern, and above all, more dangerous.
At the Geneva Conference, the NATO vassals have mainly limited themselves to criticize Russia and China for their stance on Syria. But if you look openly and honestly at the policy of China and Russia, their Syria policy is much more neutral than the policies of other so-called democratic States. It is unacceptable and also hypocritical, that Russia is unilaterally criticized for its support of the Assad regime, while the NATO vassals cultivate and arm their own army in Syria.
Although Kofi Annan finally criticizes, after a far too long period of silence, even the countries that supplied the rebels with weapons, he does not mention any specific states. The fact, that Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey should especially get named at this point, is an open secret. But also other countries, including the United States, should be called to account much more intense at this point. Not to mention, that criticism on this would also be a first step.
To really bring a political change in Syria and to finally stop the violence, all countries need to pull together and all must be really interested to stop all sides which are involved in this armed conflict. That does not happen, unfortunately – no surprise, the interests gape so far apart. If the West really wants to achieve something in Syria, sides like the Iran have to be at the negotiating table, but this was prevented by the United States already, for reasons. The U.S. administration is allegedly not ready to negotiate with Iran.
No surprise, because the United States plan their dirty foreign policy for years, and so also the attack on this country. Annan has finally declared the failure of his plan, what will follow now, remains to be seen.
Also the stipulations which were met in Geneva were only good enough for the paper on which one has quoted them. As stated previously, the agreements in Geneva were also doomed to fail and not worth the propaganda hype in the West.
The Islamist “Syrian National Council” (SNC), based in Turkey, which was compiled by the U.S. in collaboration with the Muslim Brotherhood, has no tolerance and will not accept any diplomatic steps. The “Syrian National Council” (SNC), which can be easily named as an Islamist council because the majority of the members are confirmed Islamists (Reuters and opposition figures have confirmed this already months ago) is nothing more than a useful tool and the puppets of other interests.
If one wants to lead a country into a democracy, as they always pretend it, one has to show his willingness to negotiate also with his enemies. The Syrian president al-Assad was correct in his latest speech: Syria is at war. The Western-backed terrorist organization “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and the other armed militias and Islamist units want to continue the war till the last drop of blood, out of blind hatred and desire for power, they stop at nothing.
How long the situation in Syria will remain, however, as it currently is, is hard to predict. Again and again, there is foreign meddling in the situation in Syria, the up and down of the violent situation in Syria is controlled by foreign powers, the steps by the Syrian government are not accepted. As long as the Syrian borders are not closed and get secured in a much better way, more and more fighters and weapons will be smuggled into Syria – a situation without an end.
One should finally begin to act and not only to react. The new Syrian parliament should finally start to act. At least, some opposition figures are part of the new Syrian government. As Haidar has announced, the opposition is for political change, which is needed, but should not be implemented at any cost.
One can achieve political changes and the new beginnings of political means not in a situation where the violence occupies areas in Syria. It is also hard to start with the implementation of reforms and political changes when the unrest and destabilization is fueled by abroad on a daily basis. Not to mention the sanctions against Syria, which harm the Syrian population – what is, to be honest, known by all the Western politicians, but sanctions are implemented because of reasons, but not for the reasons they get sold with.
With bombings and other atrocities you kill the people and also destroy Syria, but this definitely does not change the actual situation in the country. Haidar is right and should be heard when he calls for a dialogue without preconditions. The problem remains the same since over a year now:
The “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and the “Syrian National Council” (SNC) have no interest in a dialogue.
They want to reach their goal and that is chaos and a victory over the Alawite system. It is not only about political demands for a long time now, but also about the struggle between Shiites and Sunnis and the battle for the supremacy in the region.
