A diplomatic world war over Syrian crisis-Middle East Today-02-10-2012

There is always a new twist to the uprising in Syria and now analysts say that the United States and Britain are hell bent on starting World War III under the garb of peace in Syria. Both the countries have been pushing President Bashar al-Assad for the past quite some time to quit in order to restore peace and stability in the volatile country. Arab League and other international bodies have presented dozens of peace plans to the dictator in order to bring normalcy, but in vain.

Edward Spannaus, an editor of the Executive Intelligence Review, said in an interview with Press TV that the US and UK are determined to foment civil war in Syria for their own vested interests but they do not know its implications. He warned that the irresponsible acts of both the countries may push regional countries to a war that could subsequently lead to Third World War. It would be disastrous and devastating, indeed. It should be noted that on Friday, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned both Russia and China of dire consequences if they continued to support the Syrian president.

It has been around 16 months since the uprising started in Syria. Hundreds and thousands of pro-democracy people took to the streets with a hope of easing out the dictator through a peaceful movement against his rule. The people were also inspired by the successful uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, where decades-old tyrants were thrown out through peaceful demonstrations and protests. However, the Syrian dictator has proved to be one of the most stubborn autocrats in the history of the Arab world. He has refused to bow down before the wishes of his people.

The uprising is still going on. More than 15,000 innocent civilians have been killed so far by the security forces loyal to the regime. The dictator is hell bent on quelling the protests and demonstrations against his rule through force and violence. Human rights activists working in the violence-wracked country opine that thousands of pro-democracy people have been picked up by the security agencies, while thousands are languishing in jails without any trial. They are slammed in the prisons just for raising voice against the regime.

Edward Spannaus lauded the role of Russian President Vladimir Putin for opposing a military intervention in Syria. He said the war would have serious consequences in the region and therefore the US and its allies must not be allowed for any military action against the Syrian dictator. It may be pertinent to mention here that both Russia and China also boycotted Friends of Syria Group conference, saying they are against any foreign intervention in internal affairs of Syria. Russia and China also vetoed a resolution in the UN Security Council against the Syrian dictator. The resolution was moved by Morocco a few months back.
