The defiant posture being taken by President Bashar al-Assad of Syria is causing more concerns. There are increasing numbers of deaths and suspicious activity being preformed under his authority. From the beginning he has stated this was the insurgences actions, but results are clear, this is his own directions. The call has gone out, as other nations are removing Syrian diplomats and sending them home. The need to bring this issue to an end is clear, but the unwillingness of the United Nations to take action is also clear. Still Syrian is not the only place this issue is on-going, many in the Middle East want the same and getting nothing in return.
Every since the Syrians have begun protesting, the official response was outside insurgences were causing troubles. But insurgences can not last long without public support and the up-rising has lasted, even still going strong. President al-Assad wants to think of himself a world leader; he must realize such requires his people’s acceptance to his actions. Yet even the neighboring nations are against his very presence as the removal of diplomats shows. The results of his attacks on his own is leaving President Al-Assad cut off and without much support.
Sending the diplomats home is but one clear step the world needs to take, one long in coming. The nature of removing diplomatic contact is to insure there is more pressure on this national government to behave. But in reality, Al-Assad has already ignored so many calls to decrease the violence and even refused to all U.N. observers and press a clear understanding. His intentions are only to bring out more violence and continue using force to kill opposition. This demands more of a clear statement and willingness by world leadership to clearly state how this issue must end.
The end is going to come, the only questions is how it will arrive? We have seen already some Middle Eastern nations changing authority, but not all with peaceful means. The U.N. and world leaders need to make a clear plan of action, this to insure there is a peaceful means to end this matter. But even as such they also need to state the requirements to meet specific stages and punishments if these are not kept to. Otherwise this matter will simple degrade into more confrontations and violence interactions that will leave the Syrians at a great lose for years to come.
We have seen this before, across the Middle East such representations have occurred. These national publics are still complaining as there have been no real changes, just those in authority replace others. Yet the public is still suffering and their needs are not being met, just as before. The interest directed by the government is only on those in authority, not the bases of public interest. But if the public controls and directs its own government, these continuing conditions are not acceptable.
The world leadership must consider taking action, the results of which must also be determined by the willingness of this leadership. The concerns would be to develop a strategy that avoids further violence and punishes those who would support such violence. But as the past results have indicated, this world wide leadership is neither willing nor capable to do such. Instead the arguments will continue but with little to no results for the Middle Eastern public. Yet without the world leadership to point the way, one must consider the public doing this instead. So the future is for them to consider, yet will they also have the means to do so peacefully?
