Comments on: Syria‚Äôs one hope may be as dim as Bosnia’s once was http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/10/06/syrias-one-hope-may-be-as-dim-as-bosnias-once-was/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: cettel http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/10/06/syrias-one-hope-may-be-as-dim-as-bosnias-once-was/#comment-1111398 Sat, 17 Oct 2015 21:19:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=43954#comment-1111398 How can Reuters have the nerve to allow Michael O’Hanlon, one of the incessant warners about “Saddam’s WMD” and the need to invade Iraq in 2002 right up through the invasion on 19 March 2003, to be a columnist? Any halfway intelligent and well-informed person knows he’s a serial-liar, no better than Bush himself was. And afterwards he has continued shilling for America’s ‘defense’ contractors. His present at Reuters is like flushing the toilet onto the Reuters reputation. Is this what you want? Are you as corrupt as he seems to be? (Or else as stupid as he then would be?)

What’s the point of having a country with such a weak central governance and such divisions among people that previously lived together? If you are suggesting to partition the country along ethnic lines, why not create separate nation states? What will a confederation of ethnic divisions achieve?

These deaths are almost entirely on the hands of the U.S. I’m glad to see Russia involved, and hope they will be able to kill at the terrorists, whether financed by the U.S. or not.

As soon as the west realizes that Turkey, the Gulf Emirates and Saudi Arabia are the case of this mess and takes action against them, the killing will stop (at least in Syria — the Jihadis will bring home their killing skills back to Saudi, etc).

Russia’s revenge for humiliation in afghanistan when the US provided anti-aircraft missiles to the mujahadeen

revenge too vs the EC for backing the Ukrainian gov’t

2 Are Assad’s mobsters profiting nicely from the ethnic cleansing trade?
who provides the escape transport & de facto permits?

3 mr Netanyahu claims that israeli-russian relations are ‘good’ –
what does this portend? will Israel also be a party to a syrian settlement?

4 how will any deal treat Lebanon?

Well, almost 70 years later and that’s clearly not working out to “everyone’s” advantage. Maybe dividing the Middle East (including Israel, Saudi Arabia and the other big players) into 100 “individual autonomous sectors” would solve all or problems: oil, refugees, religious intolerance, ignorance, war, genocide, terrorism, famine, income equality, random acts of violence, etc. By logical extension, why not divide the USA into 52+ “sectors” to solve the same issues? Think before you speak (or write!)

These strategists seem unintelligent and out of touch with reality at best, of the nations they are meddling with that otherwise, were minding their business.

First of all, there are no “moderate” Jihadists in Syria. Second, claiming that Russia is avoiding bombing Daesh (ISIS) is absolutely absurd. Russia is bombing all extremists in Syria.

The USA is just angry because Daesh is their backdoor into Syria. Now, that backdoor is going to be forever shut as Russia wipes Daesh off the face of the earth. That has got to hurt.
