An Intervention That The World Will Be Forced To Make
26 November 2015
By Abdulrahman Al-Rashed
The recent act of terrorism in Paris has confirmed one, definite thing; the
necessity for intervention in Syria and putting an end to this chaos, the
dangers of which have reached beyond the Middle East. In Vienna, instead of
solving the crisis with intervention, the proposed solution calls for an
ideal friendly political solution. There is no doubt that its inventors live
in a fantasy world if they believe that it is possible to achieve this in a
country where a third of a million people have been intentionally killed.
The proposed solution calls for a gradual transition, reassuring President
Bashar al-Assad that he will not leave until after the implementation of
numerous stages which may extend over a long time. Perhaps Assad will refuse
to leave after that, and even if he does leave, the fighting may not stop
until then. Therefore, intervention is inevitable. Today, acceptable
interference is that carried out under the UN flag, with the participation of
most of the concerned countries of the world financially and militarily. This
intervention must establish a system that combines all the parties and
components of the country, prepares for rule based on elections and
immediately begins a war on terrorist groups on Syrian land in order to
cleanse it of them.
It may take a year or two to remove Assad, ISIS and all armed terrorist
groups; however, this remains the best and fastest solution compared to the
Geneva and Vienna plans. It is possible to arrange the repatriation of
refugees, help those in need and stop proxy Turkish- Saudi- Iranian clashes
and limit American and Russian intervention.
Right now, western politicians are wasting their time and they are prolonging
the lifespan of danger and its causes in Vienna. The Vienna meetings like
Geneva 1 and Geneva 2 are prolonging the crisis and expanding the danger of
the Syrian civil war on the world; and this all because of a Byzantine
controversy surrounding how to tackle the Syrian crisis. The regime in Syria
is responsible for this war, is the enemy of most of its people and is
neither able to rule Syria nor defend itself.
