I’ve recently read about US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announce to reporters and photographers after her Tokyo Summit meeting that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime is about to end. True, because of his crackdown against the Syrian opposition and the Free Syria Army, 17,000 innocent lives were lost. I’m not one to hate on their civil war, but people are dying as we speak.
The statement came in coincidentally along with President Al-Assad’s statement that the US is backing the Syrian opposition and is trying to destabilize Syria for their own benefit. However, he himself is not believable. He states that his government supports the UN Special Envoy Kofi Annan’s six-point peace plan for Syria, but says that they’ve tried the idea the recent December. They held an elections for all electoral parties and the opposition only won a few seats.
Clearly, with a government such as Assad’s, the possibility of gaining votes and influencing votes is quite easy.
The Syrian opposition, once presented with the peace plan, evidently refused to cooperate. They stated that they cannot work with any of the Assad regime as they have blood on their hands. Clearly, both sides have blood on their hands. Their attacks on each other have cost many innocent lives.
But let’s get back to the point. Hillary Clinton just said something that wasn’t appropriate. Al-Assad is going down. She said that. Then Al-Assad thinks that the US is politically backing their opponents. It just might make things worse for the six-point peace plan. Hillary Clinton might have just made things worse.
What do you think?
