Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urges Syrian supporters of Bashar al-Assad to abandon the dictator to avert civil war. She adds that Russia is supporting Assad at a time that it should be trying to remove him.

Washington — The United States is appealing to pro-government business, religious and military figures in Syria to withdraw their support from the regime of President Bashar al-Assad to avoid civil war.

“As bad as the Assad regime is, it could get worse,” Clinton said in Copenhagen, Denmark, May 31. “We … call upon the business leadership, the religious leadership, the military leadership … to stand up now and call a halt to further support for this regime.” If the status quo continues, Syria will fall into a “sectarian civil war.”

Clinton said the United States is working with the international community to alleviate suffering while supporting the mission of former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan to negotiate a cease-fire as a first step to launching a political transition that would result in the emergence of a democratic government.

The secretary said Russia is “propping up” the Assad regime at a time that it should be working on a political transition.

At the United Nations in New York on May 31, U.S. representative Susan Rice criticized Russia for sending a ship laden with arms to the Syrian government. The ship is reported to have docked at the Syrian port Tartous during the past weekend.

“This is obviously of the utmost concern, given that the Syrian government continues to use deadly force against civilians,” Rice said. “It is not technically … a violation of international law since there’s not an arms embargo, but it’s reprehensible that arms would continue to flow to a regime that is using such horrific and disproportionate force against its own people.”

Rice said the Syrian government is going to have to feel much greater pressure, particularly from its partners and supporters, to fulfill its commitments to the Annan plan “because, up to date, it hasn’t felt sufficient compulsion to do so.”

 The West doesn’t care much about Syria because there is not much oil in there. However any concern of theirs for Syria lies over their love for Iran, a strong ally of Syria. And we all know what their love for Iran means! They don’t want to ruin things for the Iranian Mullahs; they are Mullahs’ ass kissers after all, all the land’s natural wealth would make it worth their while.

So this is how it works.

Phase 1) at the early stage of the crisis in Syria when there were civilian protests going on, U.S., EU, and UN decided not to interfere, they just provided the required tranquility for Assad to be able to kill as many as possible. That was an easy way for the West to get rid of young Syria intellectual nationalists. The West waited long enough not only to make the killings a record but actually to let the outsider terrorists and Al-Qaida get a chance to get into the Syria and mix in with the Syrian protesters.  Soon after that the civilian dissidents changed into rebels and insurgents.

Phase 2) U.S. has made sure to get arms in the hands of insurgents inside Syria via underground connections ad also through the UN medical and support convoys.

Phase 3) U.S. asks Russia informally to talk Assad into leaving office. But Russia responds negatively and instead help Syrian government with the weaponries by sending a ship laden with arms to the Syrian port Tartous.

Phase 4) The game of politics for now is to make a balance in the ongoing war between the insurgent and the Syrian government until a civil war erupts in the country. In the meantime sending UN convoy over to Syria, setting up a miserable peace plan and signing off ceasefire agreement, etc, all fail. The only thing the West is good at is: issuing rhetoric condemnation remarks against the crimes, which are just bunch of political craps.
