US searches for strategy to halt Syria violence

WASHINGTON (AP) – The United States appears to be out of answers on what to do with Syria.

The Obama administration says it is not considering invading Syria or arming its rebels to remove President Bashar Assad from power. Diplomatic efforts at the U.N. have collapsed. A new, much-touted option of humanitarian assistance for Syria’s beleaguered population is a longshot – and would only bandage over the violence instead of stopping it.

For now, Washington is relying primarily on what it has been doing for the past 11 months in a so-far unsuccessful bid to force Assad’s government to end its bloody offensive on opponents: sanctions targeting the Syrian regime and isolating it from the world economy.

It is also borrowing somewhat from a strategy used in Libya’s civil war, assembling a group of like-minded nations, led by Arab governments, to coordinate an international strategy against Assad. The goal is to pressure the Syrian leader into accepting an Arab-proposed plan to transfer power to his vice president and allow for a transition to democracy.

No matter the outcome in Syria, no matter who comes out on top, there will be NO winner and Syria will either continue right along with the status quo, Assad, a murderous dictator, or they will be consumed by the Arab Spring and ruled by the totalitarianism of Sharia.

Do you remember Iran? The Green Revolution?

Protests following the 2009 Iranian presidential election against the disputed victory of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and in support of opposition candidates Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi occurred in major cities in Iran and around the world starting June 13, 2009. The protests were given several titles by their proponents including Green Revolution, Green Wave or Sea of Green, reflecting presidential candidate Mousavi’s campaign color, and also Persian Awakening. The creation of the Iranian Green Movement was developed during these protests. The events have also been nicknamed the “Twitter Revolution” because of the protesters’ reliance on Twitter and other social-networking Internet sites to communicate with each other. Islamic politician Ata’ollah Mohajerani blasted the election as “the end of the Islamic Republic”. In response to the protests, other groups rallied in Tehran to support Ahmadinejad. SOURCE

How about that revolution in Egypt? How is that working out?

The 2011-2012 Egyptian revolution took place following a popular uprising that began on Tuesday, 25 January 2011 and is still continuing as of February 2012. The uprising was mainly a campaign of non-violent civil resistance, which featured a series of demonstrations, marches, acts of civil disobedience, and labour strikes. Millions of protesters from a variety of socio-economic and religious backgrounds demanded the overthrow of the regime of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Despite being predominantly peaceful in nature, the revolution was not without violent clashes between security forces and protesters, with at least 846 people killed and 6,000 injured.[18][19] The uprising took place in Cairo, Alexandria, and in other cities in Egypt, following the Tunisian revolution that resulted in the overthrow of the long-time Tunisian president. On 11 February, following weeks of determined popular protest and pressure, Mubarak resigned from office. SOURCE

What does the violence in Syria, the Iranian Green Revolution and the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak have in common?

The leaders of ALL 3 nations engaged in the KILLING of *innocent* protesters. 

Think about the actions of Saddam Hussein and Moammar Gadhafi; it’s the same thing.

Both killed MANY of their own people, both were overthrown, both are dead. These things seem to have a way of working themselves out in the Arab world.

In one case, it took the lives of several thousand U.S. troops and untold BILLIONS of U.S. tax dollars to remove a dictator and set up a puppet government that is now at a decisive crossroads in history; does Iraq descend into open civil war, winner take all, or does Nouri al-Maliki become the brutal, iron fisted dictator that Saddam Hussein was?

In Arab nations, for the most part, it’s going to be one or the other.

Let me be very clear in what I am saying; there is little, if anything that the USA can do that will effectively bring democracy to an Islamic nation. There is nothing that the USA can do to stop the spread of Sharia or the Muslim Brotherhood in these nations.

Lets be VERY honest about this, there is a battle on in the USA, right now, to stop Sharia law from being implemented and forced on American citizens.

I am seriously convinced that we need to sweep our own doorstep, and insure our OWN freedom before we again try to force American democracy off on a people that hate our guts, don’t want us or our brand of government and have sworn to kill us if we don’t submit to them and their 7th century hypocrisy.

    I don’t believe those Arab countries want Democracy, at least the type the US wants them to have. Those people have always been ruled by an iron fist; that’s all they know. They look upon us and our form of government as a sign of weakness. They’re pushing Shariah law upon us and are gaining some small victories. We have appeals courts in Denver overturning an Oklahoma law which prevents courts from considering Shariah or international law in decisions. The Philadelphia City Council issued a resolution to the states General Assembly to kill a bill which will prevent Shariah from being implemented in the states courts. This is looked upon as weakness as our own judges and politicians are throwing us under the bus.

    • BobF… I don’t think that Democracy is possible in the ME, since it is a violation of vile Sharia law. Kind of hard to figure that our so called leaders, over the years, can’t see the obvious.

    As far as I am concerned, all Arabs are lying, cheating, not to be trusted “sand niggers”.

    Both the blacks and the semi-blacks, (see, I am being nice and polite) should be thrown out of the USA. Both have hyphenated names, and are a waste for using up our oxygen supply. I hate detest names.

    None of them have ever done much good for this country, using these hyphenated names.

    I hear and see a lot of posers, but just like the newest movie out there about black pilots in WW 2 , the movie does not follow the written documented facts of these accounts, as logged in by the commanders.

    Wake up America, and see where it is heading, which is the slippery slope down to communism.

    The blacks are already there.

    Muslims killing muslims in the ME is a good thing IMHO. Leaves less for this country to worry about down the road. Arm the weaker side to make it an equal fight and let them go at it. Once that fighting is over we can take on the winner if need be or let Israel do it. Meanwhile, as stated, we have our own problems here trying to defeat attempts to legalize sharia in this country. I too am for expelling muslims from this country back to the sandbox of their family origin.

    The UN will do to Assad what they did to Qadaffy of Libya, they will name him Humanitarian of the Year.

  6. Yes, this Arab Spring has no good outcome.

    Over and over again, the history of Islam shows this: get rid of a vile dictator, then get something even worse.
