Is the US a Peace Supporter or Terrorism Sponsor?

A soon political settlement in Syria seems difficult amid incessant attempts by western and regional powers to abort what is seen as international effort to end the crisis in Syria and in the light of the recent decision of the US Congress to arm what it called "moderate opposition" in Syria.

The recently-held Geneva 2 conference was seen as an opportunity for Syrian parties, both government and "opposition", to discuss all crisis-related issues and prepare a common ground for the solution, particularly as the Syrian official delegation was ready and open to discuss everything in the light of the Geneva I communiqué.  But, what actually happened during the conference was shameful to a disgusting degree, as statements by delegations of some participating countries; mainly the United States, Saudi Arabia, France and Turkey in addition to that of the delegation of the so-called "opposition coalition" were so aggressive to Syria, biased and had nothing to do with political solution, the core issue of Geneva 2.

The US administration, even before the end of the first round of Geneva 2 talks, shamelessly, decided to resume arming the terrorist groups with much more sophisticated weapons than before. This blatant, but not surprising, double standard policy by the US, the "cosponsor" of the peace initiative called "Geneva 2", has unfortunately been adopted under the complete silence of the international community, which is meant to push peace efforts.

The content, timing and quick implementation of the US decision-(the first arms shipments arrived in Jordan two days ago and have become at the disposal of the already trained terrorists) - is a clear-cut evidence that Obama's administration has made a new deal with Saudi Arabia aiming to undermine political solution in Syria and urge the armed terrorist takfiri groups to carry on their criminal acts against the Syrian state and people.

The Saudi complete support for takfiri Wahabi terrorists won't stop even a Geneva 3 or Geneva 4 is held, because the kingdom's mad war in Syria is that of bone breaking. The Saudis know well that Geneva conferences won't help the kingdom achieve its hoped-for goal in Syria which has been the toppling of the "regime". They also realize that Geneva conferences on Syria won't be ceremonies to hand power over to their tools represented in the so-called "opposition coalition", which was described by Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minster Faysal al-Mikdad as a group of agents serving the agendas of foreign powers.

The US decision to arm terrorist gangs can only be interpreted as an American coup on political solution in Syria that goes in harmony with the Saudi willing to continue shedding the Syrians' blood and destroying the Syrian state in implementation of the Zionist-Saudi scheme in the region. The US administration sees in its decision a great opportunity for political blackmailing through benefitting from the dissemination of the Wahhabi takfiri thinking in the country to serve its goals in the region.

Thus, the process of reproducing al-Qaeda–affiliated groups in one American-armed and Saudi-sponsored organization called the "Islamic Front" is a desperate attempt by anti-Syria forces to change the balance of powers on ground in the country, thinking falsely that by doing this they will be able to impose political conditions in possibly coming Geneva conferences.

The Geneva 2 results and the US behavior didn't frustrate the Syrians or shock them, because they knew beforehand that solutions can't be made abroad under the supervision of historically colonialist powers and terrorism sponsors. They are aware that only national dialogue among the Syrians under the homeland's umbrella is the guarantee of peaceful political settlement that preserves Syria's unity and sovereignty.

Until a true international will to fight terrorism and dry its sources is evident, the Syrian Arab Army hand in hand with the steadfast peace-loving Syrian people will carry on the battle to eradicate terrorism nationwide with firm and strong determination and will keep eying a better Syria to all the Syrians.

Kerry and his ilk try to abort Geneva 2 Conference

During the opening session of the Geneva 2 conference, it was crystal clear that some states were working to abort the event and make killing, destruction and terrorist acts continue in Syria. In fact, these states do not want the crisis in Syria to be resolved peacefully. Rather, they want devastation to continue until they become able to impose their agenda on Syria and the region as a whole to meet the colonialist interests. The US, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, which have failed even to bring a tiny part of the so-called “opposition”, wanted to blow up this conference after they had felt being lost caused by the puppets they sent for negotiations. The delegation of the opposition that participated in the conference does not represent all the spectrums of the opposition, the majority of the opposition’s figures were absent, persons were invited on short notice with the aim of not leaving vacant chairs by order of the US and its allies believing the conference would achieve their sinister objectives . But Syria’s official delegation remained in Geneva and exerted  every possible effort to make the conference a success despite the provocative statements made by the US, Saudi and Turkish foreign ministers who stepped up escalation against Syria with the aim of prolonging the crisis and increasing the sufferings of the Syrian people. The representatives of the US, France, Britain, Turkey and Saudi Arabia spoke like war criminals during the opening session.  The speeches delivered by the US foreign secretary and his followers contained a mix of untrue and unrealistic information contradicting facts on the ground. Some of the speeches delivered seemed as if those who delivered them are ambassadors of terrorist organizations, not states or governments. They must be held accountable as war criminals because they are the ones who provided funds and weapons currently being used by the armed terrorist groups in Syria to slaughter the Syrian people and destroy their public and private properties. Kerry and his ilk delivered speeches that included flagrant intervention in Syria’s internal affairs claiming that Geneva 1 provides for handing power to lackeys and puppets appointed by Ford and his ilk.

The Syrian official delegation came to Geneva for the sake of their country, people and to stop terrorism, bloodshed through a political track that would be determined by the Syrians themselves. The Syrian stance to participate in the Geneva2 conference is consistent with the political choice of the Syrian state since the beginning of the crisis which views that the political solution is the only solution which is determined by the Syrians themselves away from any foreign intervention or diktat.

The Syrian delegation came to Geneva to represent the Syrian government and before that they have a popular authorization from the majority of the Syrian people as to defend their country, preserve its sovereignty, stop the bloodshed and carry out reconstruction process to rebuild what have been destroyed by the armed terrorist groups. But the so-called coalition opposition came to Geneva taking instructions from the former US ambassador to Syria Robert Ford whose suspicious role in the crisis in Syria became known to everyone, especially the death squads he contributed to bring to Syria to take part in killing Syrians and destroy the infrastructure.  For this reason, confusion and subordination continue to prevail among the so-called coalition delegation, and the formation of this delegation continued to change even before the start of the talks. Directed by Ford, members of the so-called opposition delegation have been making provocative statements to abort the conference. But their attempt failed and was disclosed before the world public opinion.

Iran’s participation Pivotal

Iran’s participation in Geneva Conference contributes to its success. The Islamic Republic of Iran has been a key player and a pivotal state on the regional and international arenas over the past three decades. So, it is illogical to exclude it from Geneva 2 Conference, because the US, Saudi Arabia and the armed groups do not want it to take part in the event. There is an absolutely apparent need for the participation of Iran in the conference, and foreign powers should not set preconditions for its participation.

The upcoming Geneva II conference on the Syria crisis will yield better results with the Islamic Republic of Iran’s participation, and its presence in it can pave the way for resolving the crisis in Syria. The United States and the foreign-backed opposition are against Iran’s participation in the negotiations, because they want to weaken its regional role, especially following the success of the Iranian diplomacy to strike a deal with the West on the Iranian nuclear file that preserves its right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. The United States and its Western allies should support Tehran’s attendance in the event if they truly want the peace talks to be fruitful and if they truly want to find a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria. Iran’s participation will be fruitful because it is able to affect a settlement to the crisis in Syria as a prominent regional country.

If Iran attended or if it did not, Iran's position will not be affected as its regional position and international role have never been related to its presence or absence from Geneva 2. UN Secretary-General spokesperson, Martin Nesirky, announced that the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon sees that Iran’s participation in Geneva 2 conference on Syria is useful. The Holy See also called for the participation of all regional sides in the upcoming conference highlighting the importance of Iran’s participation in particular.

Tehran is ready to take part in the Geneva II talks if invited and without any preconditions. Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif stressed the importance of Iran’s participation in Geneva 2 conference with no preconditions. Zarif affirmed that his country will continue exerting efforts to achieve stability in the region whether it's invited to the international conference on Syria or not.

Imposing any sort of preconditions for paving the ground for dialogue among the political parties in Syria will not help reaching a political solution to the crisis. Tehran rejects any preconditions on its participation in Geneva 2. Iran should be invited to the upcoming Syria talks without preconditions, because preconditions for Tehran’s involvement in the event are illogical and unconstructive.

Counterterrorism is expected to top the list of the conference's agenda after a common realization of the danger of terrorists' influx to Syria, having constituted a world terrorism network that threatens the security of the region and the whole world. For this reason, before inviting states such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, the US and the international community should ask these states to halt its political, media and military support for the armed terrorist groups which are committing atrocious massacres against Syrian people and their public and private properties.

Some Western Media Negative Role

At least four British men have been killed while fighting alongside al-Qaeda-linked terrorists in Syria, British media reported. The Times said in a report on Thursday that three of the British nationals were killed in August as their group attacked the Syrian government forces near the northern city of Aleppo. The men are believed to be from London. The fourth Briton was killed two weeks later while trying to ambush a Syrian army position.

The daily said the men were part of 10 British extremists who joined up with 20 other UK nationals to fight alongside the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.

According to the British intelligence agency MI5, between 200 and 300 young British men have moved to Syria to fight against the majority of the Syrians. The intelligence agency also raised concerns that the British militants would recruit new converts to their cause or even launch attacks in the UK. "Some of those who went out in the early stages of the conflict have been able to return to Britain, radicalize others, and go back to Syria with others in tow," The Times quoted a security source as saying.

According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the terrorists operating inside the country.

Extracts from British defense consultancy, IHS Jane’s, published in Daily Telegraph in September, show that some 100,000 militants are fighting in Syria. The militants have split into some 1,000 brands since the Syria crisis began, said the study, which is based on intelligence estimates and interviews with militants.

Meanwhile, western media outlets reported, according to American intelligence officials,  that dozens of Americans have traveled or tried to travel to Syria to fight with the terrorists since 2011. The Americans are a small subset of the mostly radicalized young Muslims with Western passports who are entering Syria from Europe, North America and Australia.

Actually, western media outlets not only report the news about foreign terrorists, but mourn the death of other terrorists. For example, the New York Times mourned the death of Al Qaeda-linked Syrian opposition fighter, Abdulkader al-Saleh, the leader of al-Qaeda affiliated al—Tawhid, as ''Pragmatic… Leader''. Thus, some of these outlets are indeed part of the ongoing crisis as means of disinformation, fabrication, lies.

Syrian Army's victory nearing, conspiracy in last chapter

The heralds of victory by the Syrian Arab Army are getting closer as the conspiracy against Syria is now in its last chapter. The Syrian Arab Army is achieving advance in confronting terrorism on all areas around the country through qualitative operations that eliminated many terrorist dens and gatherings. The field scene has changed and there will be no turning back. The advance achieved by the army can be observed on the ground and through the statements of the foreign leaderships backing terrorism, as they talk about the collapse of the terrorism project against Syria. The armed terrorist groups will definitely be crushed by the Syrian army, and those mercenaries will not weaken Syrian people’s determination and faith in victory.

The unity of the Syrian people is stronger than all sabotage acts. Despite all their sabotage and terrorist acts, the terrorists will not succeed in shaking the civil peace that has marked Syria for so long. The steadfastness of the Syrian people is stronger than terrorism which is targeting schoolchildren in their schools. The vindictive targeting of young children comes due to the severe blows that terrorists suffered at the hands of the Syrian army and security forces in several parts of the country.

The human values and international law are threatened of danger in light of the spread of international terrorism and the takfiri mentality if the UN will not move to confront that fatal mentality which tries to get the generations back to the ages of underdevelopment and illiteracy, as well as to the laws of women slavery.

More than two and a half year into the crisis, the achievements and services in Syria suffered a blow due to the methodical vandalism and deliberate destruction by armed terrorist groups, coupled with unfair economic embargo on the services sector by the countries backing these groups which cast a shadow on the Syrian citizens' livelihood.

It is very important at this stage to enhance the spirit of amity and tolerance among the Syrians to overcome the crisis. Syria will always embrace its entire people, including the mistaken when they decide to return to the right path. Syrians do not need to import religion or morality because their ancestors spread Islam and Christianity to the whole world.

 Syrian people do not need anyone to decide their destiny; the Syrians will not give up their dignity and will stay committed to the option of resistance.

The outside opposition holds its meetings in the Western cities and searching for whom to decide the fate of Syria on their behalf. More than 1,000 political and 150 religious TV channels are working to destroy Syria from within, and 83 states are sending their mercenaries to Syria for the same reason.

Syria is targeted for its firm pan-Arab principles and for supporting the Resistance to defend the rights and interests of the Arab Nation. The world will witness soon the victory of Syria over terrorism.
