In “Bomb Blasts Hit 2 Security Facilities in Syrian Capital” one reads in the New York Times that delegates from the Arab league traveled to Damascus to start monitoring…
It is time to help the Syrian government and the true Syrian opposition to come to talk over a solution or else…
What else? Well, just before the arrival of the Arab League people, 160 persons have been killed fighting near the Turkish frontier, which means that Turkey has encouraged an attack to show that there is a resistance.
Second, now, the terrorist explosions in Damascus, killing a lot of civilians, show Al Qaeda signature.
Today the NYT published about the missiles stolen in Libya. Syria is no Libya. If, by misfortune, during the fighting, some of the most lethal and most dangerous Syrian missiles were taken by Al Qaeda or other fanatic Islamists, that the West, the Gulf oil theocracies and Turkey are financing, arming, training and supporting, what would happen to the world and its spoilt brat, Israel?
We know that Turkey is trying to use the Syrian turmoil to move into Syria and the Arab world, using fanatic Islamists and crying over thousands of Syrian deaths while denying its million and a half Christians’ genocide. What will happen then to the minorities in Syria if the Turks and Islamists were given their way? Another genocide or “only” ethnic cleansing like the “democratic” Turkish Republic did with its minorities and is trying to do with its Kurds?
The Arab League envoys should be strongly “advised” by their Western ‘protectors’ to make all the possible to help a dialogue between the government and the real internal Syrian opposition to reach an agreement, or else the world is at the brink of a great disaster.
