Oh yeah, Assad is still committing atrocities

Paul Iddon



It has been nearly two years now since the U.S. administration vowed to live up to its promise to militarily confront the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad after he crossed the “red-line” U.S. President Barack Obama had previously set. Hence the use of chemical weapons against his own people.

As you know that planned Anglo-American-French intervention never transpired. The U.K. pulled out after Prime Minister David Cameron sought parliamentary approval as did the U.S. when Obama decided to defer to Congress's decision. Only France had prepared to go ahead at the end of August 2013. French Dassault Rafale jet fighters armed with Scalp cruise missiles operating off the Syrian coast readying to commence operations were called back. A Russian-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution was instead agreed upon. Syria would have to give up its chemical weapons stockpile. Damascus agreed, likely knowing it would stave off a potentially devastating attack on it. Most of the declared chemical stockpile has subsequently been shipped out of Syria since that time.

Chlorine gas however has continually being used in Syria since that period. However such atrocities have largely been eclipsed by the rise to infamy of the Islamic State (ISIS) group following its rapid takeover across large swaths of Syria and neighbouring Iraq and its various crimes and atrocities. The United States did intervene militarily in Syria shortly thereafter (September 2014). But solely in order to launch air strikes against ISIS.

Now some attention is being re-focused on the use of chlorine gas by the regime. There are renewed calls in the United States for that country to take the lead in establishing a no-fly zone over Syria to stop the Syrian Air Force dropping such weapons. They were made after members of the United States Congress watched, to their dismay and disgust, footage of children succumbing to the effects of chlorine gas. Death from the inhalation of chlorine is truly a horrific way to die. The gas quite literally burns your lungs and then drowns you in your body's own fluids. Watching children die in such a way would make any decent persons stomach turn.
Former U.S. ambassador to Syria, Robert Ford, points out that the regime has been using such chemical weapons “with impunity.” Assad of course denies this, but if one actually watches this man speak (or read the transcripts of interviews he has given) you see he denies essentially all the actions forces under his command have been condemned for. Including the dropping of barrel bomb cluster munitions from helicopters of which there is ample evidence to verify has been a systematic tactic.

One doctor, Annie Sparrow, has worked on the ground in Syria. She too was, understandably, repulsed by the footage of Syrian children being killed in such a horrific way and said that she had, “never seen a more obscene way to kill children and never watched so many suffer in such an obscene manner.”

She contends that, “Syrian children and Syrian civilians deserve protection and the United States can provide it.” The chairman of the foreign affairs committee also believes that the United States and should lead the way when it comes to “denying Assad ownership” of the Syrian skies.
Again one is reminded of the aftermath of the infamous August 2013 Sarin gas attack in Damascus. Humane people being moved by footage of children succumbing to the affects of poisonous gas and wanting to take action to alleviate such horror.

One shares their compassion, their frustration and their anger. What the U.S. can feasibly do is a whole other question though. Even an ad-hoc extension of U.S. aerial operations in Syria to include (in addition to the ongoing strikes against ISIS in Syria's northeast) patrolling Syrian airspace to prevent the Syrian Air Force from targeting urban areas would likely entail an extensive operation to destroy the Syrian Air Force and the remnants of Syria's air defense networks and essentially confront the Assad regime directly.

That would involve a much larger commitment than the ongoing tit-for-tat strikes against ISIS in Syria. And if the U.S. were to engage in such operations with Turkey (the Turks say that if the U.S. takes action against Assad, establishes a no-fly zone and help them establish their long sought after “buffer-zone” in Syria's north they will then allow the U.S. to use Incirlik Air Base in southeast Turkey for operations in Syria, that would enable the U.S. to launch more frequent air strikes into Syria) that would likely entail giving a boost to forces in Syria that Turkey, among others, are supporting. Hence that umbrella network of so-called “moderate” (moderate in the sense they are not quite as bad as ISIS) Islamist opposition forces – the so-called Army of Conquest – which has the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat Al-Nusra high up in its ranks. That umbrella group has recently managed to overrun most of Syria's north-western Idlib Province which was a blow to Damascus. Smashing the military forces under Assad and giving Al-Nusra the ability and the momentum to overrun more Syrian territory and in turn threaten minority groups (Alawites, Christians etc.) wouldn't be a pleasant outcome to contemplate (that's not to say that a continuation of the status quo is a pleasant outcome to contemplate neither). Remember this all comes as Israel is being urged by its Druze minority to intervene directly in Syria in order to protect Syria's Jabal al-Druze region against Al-Nusra who may well massacre them if they are able to overrun their mountainous community.

Nobody knows what would have happened had the aforementioned Anglo-American-French attack on Assad gone ahead. We can speculate, we can say what we would have liked to have seen unfold would be what would have happened – say something like a scenario whereby Assad lost power and some non-sectarian rebel entity took control in Damascus and brought about a peaceful conclusion to the conflict. And what is left of the moderate opposition, if they ever truly existed, is doubtlessly much weaker today than it was back in mid-2013. The aforementioned Mr. Ford had long been urging the United States to arm and train moderate opposition elements in Syria fighting Assad. In recent months however he has admitted these elements have now been mostly destroyed/eclipsed by groups like Al-Nusra and ISIS and it would be counterproductive to support them at this late stage.

Unfortunately it appears clear that having been left bleed and burn for so long that there are simply very few, if any, solutions, military or otherwise, to this truly despicable, worst-of-both-worlds, state-of-affairs which continues to permeate throughout war-wrecked Syria.

It has been proven repeatedly that the rebels used the gas and it was Saudi Arabia that supplied it to them. Why did u even post this article Ponee? Don't u get it that it's Israel who benefits from the chaos and destruction of countries and its their proxies armies that have destroyed Libya,Iraq,Sudan,and Syria. They have been involved with the genocide along with the USA of millions of lives and they will keep going until they are stopped.

Really? Funny, so you are saying that Saudi Arabia, a country that hates Israel, and has no diplomatic relationship and indeed until it began to look like their one mutual enemy Iran was about to bamboozle our president into letting them continue their nuclear activities, did not even talk to them, is arming and supplying Israel's proxy army? You need to stay away from the kool-aid. Israel is as nervous about what is happening to their north as everyone else in the region, and that is first hand from "boots on the ground" in Israel.

@kenlej, I post articles without bias to one side or the other. It is to open the door to discussions.
