I don't see it happening within five years.a legitimation to meddle in internal politics of a sovereign country.
I could make a case that a country ruled by a dictator is not sovereign.
What I hear, what I hear? Fighters for freedom and democracy come together to help another tormented country. Among the famous fighters for freedom and democracy are the princes of Saudia Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain (?). Do not know if coming from Yemen and the UAE, Afghanistan and perhaps Pakistan, probably Iraq. Of course, a great friend of freedom and democracy around the world, the famous a only one-U.S, is always there to help and united demo-freedom fighters from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Pakistan, Afghanistan...
After all, ask Keleraba, he never lies.
Sovereignty isn’t a free ticket excuse to kill people without having outsiders interfering, we have had Responsibility to Protect (R2P) for years now where military measures can be taken against states who fail to protect their own citizens.
it isn't and outsiders are interfering already.Sovereignty isn’t a free ticket excuse to kill people without having outsiders interfering
as a last resort.we have had Responsibility to Protect (R2P) for years now where military measures can be taken against states who fail to protect their own citizens.
You're just theorizing, no such international law is on paper. Whoever interferes has to work around the law, which is basically declaring war on Syria. There has been so many warnings to their government, and they don't listen to anyone, it seems the only option. Question is how bad it has to get, how many civilians will die before anyone takes action.
I think most will agree that Assad belongs into a prison, the questions is how to get him there without turning a whole region into a war zone.
As kher already mentioned there is the legal backdoor with R2P already.Whoever interferes has to work around the law
At the moment whoever interferes has to work around Russia and China - or get them on their side, which might be a refreshing approach.
The resistence is armed and waging war and the "coallition of the willing" that's pushing for intervention contains some not so democratic countries which makes me doubt the sincere intentions to improve things and that in this situation any side apart from the civillians caught in between the fighting are innocent.
How many will die during and afterwards?how many civilians will die before anyone takes action.
Whatever is done the region is involved, the violence is in Syria right now, but it's a regional problem.without turning a whole region into a war zone
Question for everyone: What do you see in the next five years for Syria?
I'd bet on a civil war for another two years, increasing number of refugees in surrounding countries. An international trade embargo.. I think Assad might be weakened but still there.
