Here comes the fourth year of the revolution, ending with millions of homeless people and hundreds of thousands of martyrs and prisoners; the world has not managed to do much for the Syrians, but rather it managed to exploit the Syrian revolution to serve the interests of both according to its objectives and strategies; during this period, the United Nations was struck by a paralysis while trying to achieve progress towards a “resolution” of the question and to ensure the safety of civilians and ease their sufferings; for four years it sent a certain number of international envoys in Syria, of which three of them ended without a significant success.
Although Mr De Mistura and his team fully believe it is fundamental to give the Syrian people the right to have a dignified and secure life, this is out of their humanity and they found it was necessary to give a little concession to mitigate the horror of the tragedy that struck the Syrians everywhere, and they accepted the plan that they were offered by the studies and research centres based on giving topical anaesthetic to the burning Syrian areas.
The plan that was presented by the fourth envoy of the United Nations, even though it represented a degeneration of the proposals presented about the Syrian Revolution (compared, for example, to the plan of Annan), and which bet on the patience of civilians in Syria and on the willingness of the countries to end the conflict which started four years ago, some of them before discussing it thought this could be the first step in a series that could bear fruit and minimize the sufferings of the Syrian people, and that if the Syrian people had a main problem it wasn’t the barrels that were thrown over their heads, nor the loaves of bread of which they were deprived, but it was the system that threw these barrels and cut food and services for its people, treating them as sheep in a ranch.
Several months after the start of the work of Mr De Mistura, and after Assad allowed him to visit Damascus after having temporarily blocked it from visits, Mr De Mistura accepted to attend the celebration of the Iranian Revolution in Damascus and gave a speech in which he said that Assad was part of the solution in Syria; he gave this speech as a new concession with the ultimate aim of alleviating the sufferings of the Syrians and, in-so-doing, to implicate Assad in the political solution, as it was also confirmed by Mr Mistura.
The plan was aimed to open a dialogue between the regime and the rebels in several parts of Syria, without approaching them under a centralized system, but merely leaving out of the equation those supra forces trying to act as a substitute of the system or to impose themselves as its valid alternative; the abovementioned statement, which was declared several months after the start of the works for the plan, gave Assad a step forward the United Nations as a fait accompli which was necessary to accept.
Mr De Mistura will try to progress in his plan and to work to restore life in some places that were dominated by Assad, such as the area of Baba Amr and the old Homs, and to obtain the return of displaced people and refugees, through the involvement of the “internal dissidents” under the system and its sovereignty, and in spite of the fact that the last plan was not yet declared publicly and that its works were started a month ago by the centres of support of the plan of Mr De Mistura.
The three concessions were given to alleviate the sufferings of the Syrians, to achieve a better life for the Syrian citizens, who are tired of the four years of conflict, and to satisfy the conscience of the countries that believe that is necessary to find a solution to the “Syrian crisis” in a way to ensure its interests, and in spite of the fact that I don’t consider these concessions the only ones or the last ones, but this is already clear to the public.
God has full control over His affair
