U.S., Western States causing failed state; thousands die, thousands protest

Syrians protest
Foreign interference

Entrenched paradigm: interference, destabilization, provocation, lawlessness, impunity, violence
Editing, re-reporting, brief comment by 
Carolyn Bennett

The geopolitical struggle intensifies and nations must support a political, nonviolent solution.

The biggest problem in Syria is finding a mechanism to solve the crisis. This can be done only if pressure is exerted on regional powers and regional states now funding and arming the Syrian opposition. 

Middle East
If nothing is done to stop the violence, Syria will become a failed state. ─ Lakhdar Brahimi, UN-Arab League peace envoy to Syria

anny Makki is a graduate in International Relations and regular commentator on the crisis in Syria. He spoke with Press TV. This is some of what he said.

Since the very first day of the Syrian conflict, Makki said, “The United States has rejected any political solution.

By providing non-lethal aid, supporting the Syrian opposition politically, providing stinger missiles and other forms of weapons, the United States has been one of the major protagonists in making the crisis continue.

For the last forty years, the United States of America has wanted to seek the downfall of Assad, both Assad Junior and Assad senior. They want a moderate pro-Western government in Syria that allows for U.S. hegemony, U.S. plans and dominance in the region.

Displaced Syrians
The United States wants the death of Arab nationalism, the death of any powers and forces that fight imperialism in the region; they want a pro-U. S. government such as exists in Jordan or that existed in Egypt under Mubarak.

The United States wants the death of the Arab kind of nationalism, of an Arab ideology that rejects colonialism, rejects imperialism ─ this is exactly what is happening in Syria.

The United States has an atrocious history of human rights within the Middle East and has never been a friend of the Syrian people or the Syrian government.

Victims of geopolitics
What obstructs a nonviolent process in resolving the Syrian crisis, Danny Makki concludes, is “the absolute intransigence of Western governments and Western regimes and reactionary Arab regimes. They block any political solution. They block any political settlement that negotiates a peaceful ending to what is happening.

“In this day and age,’ he says, “this is an absolute travesty.”

he UN Human Rights Commissioner today released a United Nations report showing that at least 60,000 people have died in the Syrian conflict.

Commissioner Navi Pillay noted that since the conflict has not subsided in the weeks between November 30 and the turn of 2013, the total dead likely exceeds 60,000.

For the study, researchers analyzed five months of data, cross-referencing seven sources to compile a list of 59,648 individuals reported killed between March 15, 2011, and November 30, 2012. The number of casualties, much higher than we expected, Pillay said, “Is truly shocking.”


Lashback, backlash 2011: “Syrians Denounce Presence of U.S. Ambassador”
Syrians protest
Foreign interference

Friday, July 8, 2011, “Hundreds of Syrians gathered in front of the U.S. Embassy in Damascus to protest U.S. Ambassador Robert Ford’s violation of the principles of diplomacy and his blatant interference in Syria’s internal affairs.

“Syrians in most provinces (thousands gathered at Bab Touma Square in Damascus) reiterated adherence to the independence of decision-making in Syria, rejecting all forms in foreign interference, stressing commitment to national dialogue and reform, and denouncing the presence of Ford in Hama to incite its people.

Protesters carried banners and repeated slogans denouncing the blatant U.S. interference in Syria’s affairs and demanding that the U.S. ambassador leave the country. They also saluted the Syrian army, saying that the army is supported by all of Syria, underlining the importance of the Syrian people’s national unity in confronting the conspiracies targeting their country.

Yemenis protest U.S.

Libyans protest U.S.
he United States’ presence and performance in the Middle East demonstrates the deeply critical failure in America’s moral leadership and adherence to the rule of law.
