Syria: External Opposition rejects Peace Talks in Russia

Syria: Staged opposition not interested in a peaceful solution.

Units of the Syrian Arab Army have eliminated several foreign-backed groups of extremists and religious fanatics near the Syrian capital Damascus.

According to some sources like Suria TV and contacts in the capital of Syria, these foreign-backed terrorist groups were liquidated by the Syrian Arab Army in the region between the two Syrian towns of Yabrud and Nabak.

Both Syrian towns are located about 55 kilometres away from Damascus and it is still the situation that some armed wings of the Islamist “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) are still active in the southern outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus.

Although the Syrian Arab Army has already carried out a lot of operations against these armed groups of religious radicals, terrorists and mercenaries, which are mainly not Syrian but citizens from other Arab countries, there are still more and more which penetrate into Syria in order to fight against the Syrian army and the government in Damascus – due to the constant support of Gulf States like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Turkey, Jordan and other Arab countries as well as some European countries and the US administration.

In addition, the cover by the NATO media of the crimes against humanity, which are carried out by these foreign-backed terrorists, helps a lot to maintain the propaganda that these armed groups only defend themselves against the attacks of the Syrian army and would fight for democracy, freedom and peace; although everybody who cares about situation in Syria should already know that there is no good side in this conflict anymore.

Both sides, if one is really able to speak about two sides although it is obvious that one should rather speak about more sides in this conflict, have committed crimes while the Syrian people suffer more and more from week to week.

Furthermore, the hypocritical sanctions of the West against Syria only harm the population as usual. That these sanctions would (only) harm the Syrian elite / leadership is a typical fairy tale of Western politicians.

Of course, these Western politicians and governments do know that these sanctions harm the Syrian people first but they just do not care because these sanctions and the decreasing living standard which go hand in hand with the sanctions and the upgrade of these terrorists with weapons and ammunition by the West (which means on-going violence, terrorism and massacres against civilians and minorities) should trigger the turning away of (more and more) Syrian people from their President Bashar al-Assad and the government in Damascus.

At least, after all the time, it seems that this plan of the West has partly failed because a huge part of the Syrian people still oppose this “regime change” by force and some even have increased their level of support of the Syrian government and their rejection of the Western-backed terrorist groups like the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA). Although the known “Salvador option” is working as this horrible plan is often (or even always) working, not all of the Syrian people have fallen into this sectarian trap and then started to lose their Syrian values.

This “Salvador option” always bares the dangers of a too religious society of different sects and this is a weak point in all Arab states (and some other areas on this planet). In addition, it is very obvious that this so-called “Salvador option” is a good way to destabilize a state and to decrease the level of support between the different sects and minorities within this state.

Of course, it also increases the clashes between these groups. Thus, religion is a weak point since centuries and if an administration such as the government of the United States does not care about the civilians of another state and starts to use this “Salvador option” in order to achieve their questionable geo-political and economic goals, it seems legitimated to say that this has always worked and will always work as long as this foreign state has a lot of different religious minorities / sects on its soil.
The “Salvador option” is a horrible method to achieve the destabilization of another country due to the fact that it also triggers a high level of violence between the different religious minorities and that these “sectarian conflicts” will stay for a very long time.

Richard Dawkins is truly correct with statements such as “At least the fundamentalists haven’t tried to dilute their message.

Their faith is exposed for what it is for all to see” or “Bush and bin Laden are really on the same side: the side of faith and violence against the side of reason and discussion. Both have implacable faith that they are right and the other is evil. Each believes that when he dies he is going to heaven. Each believes that if he could kill the other, his path to paradise in the next world would be even swifter. The delusional “next world” is welcome to both of them. This world would be a much better place without either of them.”

Not to mention the statements of others like Albert Einstein or Mark Twain who once said “Man is a Religious Animal. Man is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion — several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbour as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn’t straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path to happiness and heaven…. The higher animals have no religion. And we are told that they are going to be left out in the Hereafter. I wonder why? It seems questionable taste.”
The conclusion is easy and obvious – religious people can be easily misused in order to achieve specific aims. The levels of religiosity and the levels of being such an easy target to be misused could even be conformable lines. Of course, other values such as prosperity / poverty / education (…) affect these levels.

Now back to the Syrian conflict. The so-called external Syrian opposition – a staged bunch of Syrian exiles, Islamists, careerists and propagandists who are not united in their aims, goals and intentions – rejects the invitation to so-called peace talks in the Russian capital Moscow. As usual, this questionable Syrian opposition is not interested in real peace talks which could lead to a political solution for the crisis and conflict in Syria. They have always rejected such negotiations and talks.
This external “Syrian opposition” is still the staged political arm of the Western- and Gulf-backed terrorists in Syria and it seems obvious that real peace talks will not lead to the dubious aims of these militant fighters. Thus, that they reject the invitation to peace talks in Russia is understandable but condemnable.

That the Western NATO media only condemns one side of this conflict, the Syrian government, is a normal method in this propaganda war against Syria and only confirms that the Western mainstream media is not objective.

Russia has sent this invitation to the so-called president of the questionable “National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces”, Moaz al-Khatib, on Friday. Of course, Moaz al-Khatib has rejected to take part in these peace talks in Russia. Instead, Moaz al-Khatib said that he wants an apology of the Russian government for its support of the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the government in Damascus.

Such impertinence is then still backed by certain Western states and their violent regional allies like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the Turkish government under the head of the Ottoman madman Erdogan.
Of course, the further statements by Moaz al-Khatib only confirm that he is just another clown for the staged show of a so-called democratic opposition which is anything but really democratic. Instead, it is a bunch of religious fanatics, careerists and vindictive expatriate circles which receive their orders by Hillary Clinton.

He was so bold that he has even explicitly demanded an excuse by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov because the Russian FM Lavrov has “all the time said that the Syrian people will decide their destiny without foreign intervention”. What a hypocritical statement and demand by Moaz al-Khatib. Not to mention that it shows the true colours of this staged opposition council outside Syria, which has even not the support by the majority of the Syrian people.

Moaz al-Khatib suggested in a statement at the Qatari propaganda station Al-Jazeera that he and Mr Sergej Lavrov could meet in an Arab country (he sure means Saudi Arabia or Qatar probably…) if there would be a clear agenda” – This is again a brazenness.

The members of the several staged opposition council never were able to deliver a real again. Instead, a lot of them have constantly demanded a military intervention in Syria although this would trigger much more dead and also increase the already bad situation of many Syrians in Syria.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin has once again said shortly before Christmas that any decision about ending the conflict and crisis in Syria should be made by the Syrians themselves and he demanded that all different parties should be included in this process. Of course, the Russian President Vladimir Putin knows about the real stances and powers behind all sides in this conflict and he also represents a side – the Russian interests.

Vladimir Putin has also called for the establishment of a so-called “democratic order” that will “reflect the will of the Syrian people” although some would say that one should not throw bricks when he lives in a glass house due to the fact that Russia and a “democratic order” it itself not really congruent.

At least, the Russian President Putin has also once again underlined the need for a political process in order to reach a peaceful situation in Syria. Putin further said that Russia is not interested in a chaotic situation in Syria.

These peace talks are small glimmers of hope although it is very questionable whether these peace talks about Syria are really the way to solve the conflict in this Arab country.
Although peace talks about Syria sound good and desirable, it would be an important first step for peace if the Western governments and their allies, the totalitarian dictatorships of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, would just stop the delivery of arms and ammunition to the Islamist “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) in Syria.

So-called democratic governments in the West should not support the supply of weapons to Islamists and militants because this is just not democratic. It`s simple like that. Not to mention that the currently supported militants and fanatics in Syria are tomorrow’s enemies of the West.
