Syrians deserve peace after 10-year proxy war

TEN years ago, the ‘Arab Spring’ was on. Repressed peoples rose to challenge entrenched establishment, or so it was thought. First, the protests mainly affected Africa having started in Tunisia, burning through Egypt and Libya. Meanwhile, the repressive and monarchical Gulf states, except Bahrain, were left untouched. The flames in Bahrain were speedily extinguished by a punitive and brutal Saudi expedition which ensured that the minority monarchy continues its repressive rule.

So, while the Tunisian and Egyptian protests were genuine, those of Libya which overthrew President Mouamar Ghadaffi and Syria which was basically an attempted coup, were contrived by Western powers and their conservative allies in the Gulf region.

Syria was a beautiful, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious country. But the Western powers found it intolerable that it would not agree to be a satellite state and that it remained a power strong enough not just to resist the predatory Israeli state, but also strengthen Lebanon’s resistance against Israeli incursions. The conservative Gulf states which were actually the ones ripe for the ‘Arab Spring’ revolt, were uncomfortable with Syria’s radicalism and  its alliance with the Shiites in Lebanon and Iran.
