Syria awaits mil­i­tary strike!

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Gazi Has­san

Fi­nally, the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity came to be­lieve that Syr­ian Govern­ment used the banned chem­i­cal weapon against civil­ians in Gouta. This is the cross­ing of the red line Obama men­tioned months ago. Barack Obama is try­ing to per­suade Congress to launch a mil­i­tary strike against po­lit­i­cal, mil­i­tary and in­tel­li­gence au­thor­ity of Bashar As­sad. In Bri­tain, David Cameron could not per­suade the par­lia­ment to use mil­i­tary forces, Hol­lande is col­lect­ing pub­lic opin­ion, and they’re with launch­ing a mil­i­tary strike against Syria.

All worlds news­pa­pers are fol­low­ing Obama’s stance, they want to re­veal what de­ci­sion will Amer­ica make re­gard­ing launch­ing mil­i­tary strike and lim­it­ing the power of Bashar As­sad who has been car­ry­ing out mas­sacres be­fore the eyes of in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity, and more than one mil­lion peo­ple es­caped to neigh­bour­ing coun­tries. Amer­i­can Se­cu­rity Coun­cil hasn’t yet made fi­nal de­ci­sion, but Amer­i­can of­fi­cials are with pro­tect­ing na­tional in­ter­ests. This time, Obama’s steps will be tough, be­cause Bri­tain didn’t de­cide; this will give Syria a new op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue its mas­sacre, de­pres­sion and de­struc­tion. In both moral and po­lit­i­cal prospec­tive, Obama must limit these ac­tions of Syria, which are against UN prin­ci­ples and hu­man­ity. The events re­mind the Amer­i­can peo­ple of Amer­ica’s pol­icy in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Le­banon.

In ad­di­tion to that, this ac­tion may rec­tify Amer­ica’s at­ti­tude in Egypt events, the at­ti­tude which the op­po­si­tion with both Is­lamist and sec­u­lar sides were dis­sat­is­fied of.

It’s not far off that it chooses the ex­pe­ri­ence of Libya, which its al­lies in NATO car­ried out airstrike against Gaddafi with­out re­turn­ing to In­ter­na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil. Obama at that time at­tacked Libya with­out Congress ap­proval. Again the US pres­i­dent sent troops to Korea in 1956 with­out the back­ing of Congress. It's not far that Obama does the same.

But we should re­mem­ber that the co­op­er­a­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion of Arab coun­tries is im­por­tant. Iraq and Jor­dan stated they will not al­low their lands to be used for at­tacks against Syria. Iraq seems to be com­mit­ted to the re­la­tion­ship and al­liance with Syria and Ira­nian govern­ment. Jor­dan also can­not join the mil­i­tary al­liance due to in­ter­nal and po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion. This may not be a good re­ac­tion for Amer­ica.

What's hap­pen­ing will drive the area into ten­sions and in­sta­bil­ity, al­though we should not for­get Rus­sia as an al­liance of Syria has cho­sen a neu­tral stance re­gard­ing mil­i­tary strike. What is worth ques­tion­ing is the at­ti­tude and the sup­port of Iran and Hizbulla and other Shi­ite groups at the time of any mil­i­tary or air strike against the power of Bashar As­sad.

In­ter­nally, cit­i­zens are hid­ing or es­cap­ing to neigh­bor­ing coun­tries. Syr­ian govern­ment wants to move the mil­i­tary and in­tel­li­gence bases and hide them, so as not to melt down in front of the heat of at­tacks in the first strike. What will be the re­ac­tions of Syr­ian govern­ment to these kinds of at­tacks? As they say they will pass the mat­ter over to the whole Mid­dle East, the fire will burn ev­ery­where. Do they want by this to form an Eastern war front from Iran to Is­rael bor­ders? Will the neigh­bors, es­pe­cially the ones who are de­nom­i­na­tion­ally close and al­lied join the front, or will Iran want to keep it­self off the war and Syria is in the hot and se­ri­ous front against West and Amer­ica. We should not for­get that the fail­ure of Mus­lim Broth­er­hood rul­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in Egypt changed many things in the bal­ance and the fu­ture of anti-Euro­pean Is­lamist move­ments.

The strike is close due to the fault of Syr­ian au­thor­ity by us­ing chem­i­cal weapon in Gouta, ev­ery­one want to rec­tify the his­toric mis­take that they al­lowed Syria to be free in strik­ing op­po­si­tion, be­cause what is now hap­pen­ing in Syria is the most se­ri­ous vi­o­la­tion against hu­man­ity in the 21st cen­tury. That's why it's not far that Barack Obama takes a step to­wards a mil­i­tary ac­tion against Syria. What has been hap­pen­ing so far is a de­ci­sion by Syr­ian au­thor­i­ties them­selves, be­cause they chose closed-ended ways and used banned chem­i­cal weapons. There­fore, all in­di­ca­tion shows that the mil­i­tary ac­tion against Bashar As­sad will get quicker and closer. As a re­sult, the bal­ance of power would change and fi­nal­iz­ing the is­sues might go into a brighter di­rec­tion. We should not for­get that Syria is now liv­ing in a bro­ken psy­cho­log­i­cal sit­u­a­tion; its friends also re­mained silent, its mil­i­tary is go­ing to­wards hid­ing. The word of the Syr­ian mil­i­tary of­fi­cial is also a de­feat who said they have 8000 com­man­dos ready for sui­cide at­tack and fight against West plans. This is all de­feat, be­cause the West will at­tack through air, As­sad's sol­diers are wait­ing the end of dra­matic events in the nooks and cor­ners.
