Post-Assad Syria: Western-backed Opposition has a Transition Roadmap

Bashar al-Assad - reption of a Lebanese delegation 21 April 2013

Staged Syrian opposition proposes roadmap for post-Assad government in Syria.

Several members of the so-called “Syrian National Coalition” (SNC) as well as other members of external Syrian opposition groups, partly or mainly backed by Washington and the Saudi regime, have created a roadmap for the post-Assad phase in Syria. The so-called transition roadmap for Syria shall achieve a “national reconciliation as well as justice for all of Syria’s victims,” according to a new statement of the staged external opposition, which has been created to present a political opponent beside the foreign-supported terrorist forces on ground in Syria.

However, more and more people should have learned that the most of these foreign-backed terrorists and jihadists between the borders of Syria are far away from having a democratical sense or to accept orders from so-called politicians far away. In contrast, under consideration of the recent massacres, car bomb attacks, kidnapping and violence against Syrian civilians as well as against Syrian Kurds (both sides represent the same group for many Syrians), it is to assume that every person who is capable of logical thinking, should have accepted the fact that this kind of opposition and their so-called ground forces are neither good for Syria nor good for the Syrians.

The so-called new or final roadmap by the external Syrian opposition will be presented in full length tomorrow. Of course, the Saudi-backed new head of the so-called “Syrian National Coalition” (SNC), Ahmed Jarba, who has won the last presidential elections against the Qatari-backed candidate, will take part in the presentation of the new transition roadmap for the post-Assad phase in Syria.

However, this so-called roadmap for the time after Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and after the current secular government of the Arab nation has not been officially endorsed by the main opposition group and all its important members.

Of course, this presentation of a so-called transition roadmap for Syria after the armed overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad and the secular government in the capital, Damascus, is just another staging by this powerless opposition groups and their heads who enjoy such a showmanship, while they have no real influence in the situation on ground in Syria.

Some say the Syrian conflict will be solved on its battlefield and not by political means. However, both is important, but this kind of so-called Syrian opposition is useless and nothing else. This roadmap to to achieve “national reconciliation and justice for all of Syria’s victims” is nothing else than another farce, while the foreign-backed terrorists in Syria lose the majority of the battles now.

The Syrian Arab army (SAA) gains more and more ground in several regions of the Arab nation and it does not look like the US-Israeli-linked external “Syrian opposition” will ever gain power in Syria. Further, it does not look like the Syrian President al-Assad will be overthrown by the armed jihadist and terrorist forces.

This new farce by the foreign-supported opposition outside Syrian borders says that the “national reconciliation” in Syria will be achieved after the armed overthrow of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad by “a long transitional justice process in which justice is assured for all of Syria’s victims.” So far, the most victims, of whom I know, are victims of the “opposition fighters” on Syrian soil. Victims of the foreign-supported terrorist groups as well as victims of the formerly US-backed Jabhat al-Nusra Islamists (al-Nusra Front) and other previously Washington-supported al-Qaeda thugs in Syria.

Although it is clear that no side is without guilt in such a long-term conflict and soldiers are sometimes sadly also the perpetrators behind torture, violence and other gruesome incidents. However, the majority of crimes and the most blood sticks on the hands of these opposition slaves as well as on Washington’s politicians and the heads of the Saudi regime, if one speaks about the backers of the armed terrorist and Islamist forces on Syrian soil.

Contrary to the Western propaganda and the propaganda by such propaganda papers like the Voice of Russia, the peaceful beginning of the “protests / uprising” in Syria is a myth and fairy tale in order to brainwash the people and to use it as propaganda, as usual.

The beginning of the protests in Syria were not peaceful, but already violent. That`s a fact, even confirmed by many analysts as well as e.g. German politicians and others who have carried out intense investigations about the Syrian conflict and acknowledge crimes by the Syrian forces in their results.

However, every statement about a “peaceful beginning of the uprising in Syria” is simply propaganda, nothing more, nothing less. If the editorial office of “Voice of Russia” would care about the security of Russia, they would not sell Western propaganda, but publish facts with the use of a common sense.

In terms of the so-called transition roadmap for the post-Assad government in Damascus, Syria, the proposals by these Western- and Saudi-backed opposition members also demands the disarming and restructuring of the Syrian Arab army (SAA), which currently consists of all parts of the Syrian society.

While the proposals call for a restructuring of the Syrian security forces and army “to uproot all corrupt officials,” they seem to have (willfully?) forgotten the fact that there are more Syrian soldiers fighting against their “ground forces” than the mentioned Syrian officials. The statement of the opposition about the “transition roadmap” for the post-Assad Syria says further that “all armed groups will be disarmed, demobilised and reintegrated into Syrian society.” Maybe as good as the staged Libyan Transitional Council has been able to do it…

The Syrian roadmap of the Saudi-backed opposition groups outside Syria, which are responsible for many violence within the country and whose members have never really cared about the lives of the Syrian families in the last two years, also demands a “hybrid presidential/parliamentary system” after the fall of al-Assad in Syria.

Such a “hybrid presidential/parliamentary system” shall be the new political system for Syria. Sounds like the perfect political system for a mainly Arab society. My ass. It rather sounds like a proxy regime with staged elections in favour of Western interests (not to mention some Gulf States and the regime in Tel Aviv).

This farce of a roadmap for Syria after al-Assad also is proposing the use of the 1950 constitution in Syria as the basis for a new Syrian charter, including an elected constitutional assembly mandated to decide on modifications.

This constitution of Syria makes it clear that the head of the currently secular Arab nation must be a Muslim and privileges the legislature over the executive. However, this roadmap is more “BS” than saying that Ahmed Jarba is supported by the Qatari regime (he is born Syrian, but meanwhile became Saudi – money is everything).

    Yeah, the US has filing cabinets full of road maps. Most have, stamped across them in huge red letters, ‘OOPS!’ Every time they drag one of these things out they should play (at full volume) Hank Snow’s rendition of ‘Ninety miles an hour down a dead end street.’

    The religious radicalization of parts of Syria’s society has started at least 10 years ago. A slow process set in with the American war in Iraq, which had its affect on Syria through refugees and activists who settled in Syria. The religious rift slowly got hold of ever wider areas throughout the country. Evidence was everywhere, and I believe it was unavoidable. The old Aleppo Souk was a boiling ground of radical Islam. In 1998 members of all religions, all nations and all races were welcome there. In 2003 the first anti-western sentiments were expressed by locals towards tourists or expats. By 2007 the Armenians would not go to the souk anymore, a western diplomat’s daughter was spilled with acid into her face and I was spit at and called f…. American, even though I am European. The same radicals are now fed with US weapons to finally revenge the Hama massacre with the help of Arab jihadists. They don’t give a …. where the money comes from, as long as they get it. The genuine political opposition in Syria has been dragged by them into a battle they never wanted. The root causes are nothing new. And, they go back many decades. Again, I don’t think it would have been possible to avoid this war. Just as it is impossible to introduce genuine democracy in which the vote has the power, and not the gun, in countries such as Libya or Afghanistan. Multicultural, -ethnic, -religious nations where there is no common respect for diversity are doomed to fail. The religion of the majority may also take over where the protection of state law fails or where affiliation to one or another group becomes an issue, or worse – an opportunity. Furthermore, forgiveness such as Nelson Mandela called for, has never been an option in the Middle East. Forgiveness is not taught, not understood and not appreciated by society and Islam there. If you cannot forgive, you will never be able to reconcile. Bold words, but true.

      I never have experienced any anti-western sentiments in Aleppo in the last years.. however, I did in Idlib and comparing my experiences in Idlib to aleppo or other places in Syria, it was (simple said) like another world and very very “religious” or to say it better..somehow radical.

    • M. Klostermayr

      Maybe that has been the reason.. or I just missed it when I have been there.. however, it was no surprise for me that Idlib has become one of the main strongholds of these fanatics two years ago. it was to expect in case something like this happens.. I am still surprised that the “government” has never done anything to counter these “developments” in the wrong direction. Although.. no, I am not really surprised anymore now. It might be a secular government but its secular for reasons and that many of them are lazy or corrupt.. is probably no secret.

        Unless I remember wrongly, all people of the book are instructed to respect other peoples of the book – – I’d suggest that one party is not supposed to slaughter another party out of hand, or throw mailmen off roofs of post offices, or crucify people in front of a government facility, or gas them with sarin – – throw acid in the faces of the women and children just because they don’t wash their feet in the proper sequence? That’s stupid. Personally, I have regard for all people of good will, and only despise those who are not. The evil ones are not worth the corrosive effects upon oneself which are byproducts of hatred upon the hater. Supposedly members of all sects of any of the three primarily religions are aspiring to Heaven, but darned few show it.

        ‘Democracy’ is a much bandied myth, the only fully functional example with a genuine history was Athens; anyone could be elected, by acclimation, to any office, but was limited by law to a tenure of 30 days; yes, he could be re-elected by acclimation, for another 30 day tenure, but the effect was the same; there were no lifetime office holders, and even when a tyrant was perceived as being necessary, and elected, he still had to answer to the people. There are very few countries who have successfully navigated the change from colony to republic; during the interstice there is almost always the need for a ‘dictator’ to establish among the people(s) a common purpose, commonality of the primary aspects of the culture, a national identity, smoothly functioning civil structures, integrated military comprised of all sectors of the citizenry – – eventually, the worst of the bugs get worked out and city councils get elected by the citizens, then county commission, followed by State legislatures and, eventually, a national government. Red China is in the beginning steps of this progression, but the Chinese are smart; ‘instant gratification’, to them, is anything under a hundred years. A ‘long term’ goal might hang out there a thousand years into the future. The peoples of the Middle East have been on site since Sumer and what have they learned from a history of that magnitude? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    Some of the North African and Middle Eastern countries were in train for the establishment of republics, and I’d not given them credit for that. Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon were on their ways, but have either been forcibly derailed by outside players, or are currently struggling for their national lives and identities. It’s too soon to tell, yet, how the game will play out, but Lebanon and Syria as still viable and have loyal, secular populations. Syria might make it – – I certainly hope so. Lebanon may, but only if its army becomes more than parade garrisons and begins to take the risks associated with protecting their country. Personally, I don’t see that happening, so the burden of defense will fall to Hezbollah, unfair as that may be, and distasteful to ‘the West’, whatever that is these days. Syria erred years ago, a continuing error, in that the Kurds have been systematically excluded in so very many crucial areas – – until now, when there are no other forces available to hold the northwestern and northeastern borders. When it’s all over the only thing that will be remembered about them is that they are Kurds, no matter that they are sectarian with faiths and sects running the gamut from Alawite to Zoroastrian Monarchists – – they are stull Kurds, and inclusion will not be possible for them, unless Damascus finally grows a brain. I don’t look for that to happen. Sorry, but that’s the way I see it. If Syria loses, it will be through its own stupidity.
