War Scenarios for Syria (II)

War Scenarios for Syria (II)

DAMASCUS/BERLIN (Own report) – German government advisors’ new war
threats are accompanying the fragile ceasefire in Syria. If the civil
war in the country continues, Western states would either have to
accept “the limits of their influence” or decide military
intervention, writes an expert for “security policy” of the German
Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP). An array of
gradual intervention options could be conceivable, ranging from arms
supplies and training programs for the Syrian insurgent militias, via
partial occupation of Syrian territory (“creation of safe areas”) to
western invasion. According to the government advisor, this last
option is improbable, but German participation should be assured in
any case. Human rights organizations are deploring that Western
supported militias (often Sunnites), fighting against the Assad
regime, are also committing serious crimes. Experts are warning that
Islamist forces could take power in Syria with the support of Qatar
and Saudi Arabia, the most reactionary regimes in the Arab world.
Their regime could become just as repressive as the Assad regime.
Libya’s development could serve as an example.
