What is happening in and to Syria?
Unravelling the New Western Doctrine in the Middle East
Kurdishaspect.com - By Dr Kamal Mirawdeli
The Times newspaper persistently criticizes Obama for his ‘failure’ to support the Syrian Opposition and passionately calls for the supply of lethal weapons to the Syrian Free Army to end the despotic dictatorship of the Ba’thist regime of Bashar Assad.
I wrote some comments in the free space provided by the newspaper, on a recent such article by the Times, but unsurprisingly it did never appear!!
I do not want here to dwell on the past attitudes and positions of the Times and West regarding Assad and other past and present dictatorial and fascist regimes of the Middle East including Saddam, Mubarak, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, etc.
I will rewrite below the bold points I made in my unpublished comments in the Times to reveal and unravel the reality of what is happening in and to Syria and its people:
1.MAD: Mutually-Assured-Destruction: The West’s policy which is sinisterly implemented by its client states and allies: Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey is the policy of Mutually-Assured-Destruction of the Syrian people by first dividing them into sectarian communities and then encourage, arm and finance them to fight to the finish and destroy each other. 2.Liberation of land without people: The result is a prolonged process of deliberate cruel inhuman and brutal genocide of a people and total destruction of their cities, villages, neighbourhoods including landmarks of their ancient civilization, historical monuments of their common struggle and peaceful-coexistence and all economic and social infrastructures and habitats that make living as human beings possible. All this in the name of liberation. 3.Trample upon International Law and Sovereignty: What the West, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia (and now Jordan) are doing is a flagrant violation of international law and all principles of sovereignty and human rights, it is deliberate intentional criminal indulgence in the genocide of a nation through aggressive intervention and the provision of finance and transportation of murderous gangs, arms, equipment and ammunition. 4.Genocide without punishment: What Urdogan is doing in Syria is hundred times worse than what of General Ratko Mladić did in Srebrenica in 1995 including the killing of more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys, as well as the mass expulsion of another 25,000–30,000 Bosnian Muslim civilians, in and around the town of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Syria so far more than 100,000 people have been killed, twice this number maimed, 1.500 million people have been uprooted and become external refugees, 4 million are internally uprooted and impoverished with brutal primitive conditions of killing with bare hands and daggers, extracting out hearts and sawing human bodies live giving no food for thought for the people like the Times Leader writers, Western humanists and liberal thinkers and Muslim clerics in Istanbul, Egypt, Riyadh and Qatar. 5.Destroy children and future generations: The main target of the Israeli-Qataris-Turkish genocide plan been children as with the elimination of security and normal life, family life has become impossible, neighbourhoods and communities have been uprooted, normal economy and transaction disappeared and poverty and famine have become rife. Mass displacement internally and externally means the loss of life and future of a generation of children and young people. 6.The New American Doctrine: Behind all this there is a new American doctrine replacing the 1990s ‘humanitarian intervention’ and the post-9-11 ‘democratic regime-change-fighting-terrorists interventions. This new doctrine is a revival of the old British classical Divide-and-Rule doctrine with a more lethal content. The policy now is: Divide-Destroy-Deliberate. Divide people into sectarian factions, make sure each faction is armed directly or indirectly, assure their mutual destruction , then deliberate how to intervene and harvest the gains through ‘democratically’ imposing political pimps and puppets as representatives of the vanished and vanquished people. 7.Invasion after Destruction: This new policy means intervention or invasion of countries after their assured destruction. This represents the reversal of the Iraqi experience which was the invasion of Iraq followed by destruction of its people and civilization. Now Syrian people are destroyed before any direct Western invasion. This also represents learning lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan experiments which cost thousands of American and Western lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. 8.The security and interests of Israel are paramount: The not-so-secret driver of these new policies, doctrines and practices is Israel. The Arabs were used to call the Kurds: ‘ the Second Israel’ in the Middle East. Now Qatar is the Executive Front of all Israeli policies and actions and Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey are happy to act as obedient clients while Western oil companies patiently wait for their new-colonial invasion and oil fields.
