CONTENTS
Stopping the carnage
A GROUP
called the Greek Committee for In-ternational Detente and Peace (EEDYE) aswell as members of the Communist Party-affiliated union PAME said this week theywere planning to stage rallies outside the American Embassy in Athens to protest theplanned Nato military intervention in Syria.Their mobilisation is clearly tied to the ideathat the ‘forces of Imperialism’ are at it again,itching to get into the fray and impose theirwill on Syria.But the question in Syria is not really one of‘western imperialism’ versus the rights of theoppressed. It’s a moral one. Does the worldstand by –as it has done so many times inother conflicts-as Syria plunges deeper intochaos and a humanitarian crisis? Sittingback and firing off accusations of a Natoconspiracy as everything unravels in Syriais not a solution, given the bloodshed overthe past two yearsOf course, no one can prove -without adoubt -who is exactly gassing who. And the Americans know only too well what it meansto enter a war on false pretenses. And re-ports of Al-Qaeda having infiltrated the rebelgroups have proliferatedBut video footage out of Syria, confirms thatthe use of chemical weapons on the groundis indeed a heinous reality. The West has, sofar, come under fire for “doing nothing” tostop the conflict and stop the senselessdeaths of unarmed civilians. And Obama hasbeen repeatedly mocked for repeatedlyredrawing his “red lines”.The truth of the matter is that diplomacy andsanctions have so far failed to end the con-flict and hundreds of thousands have per-ished. That doesn’t necessarily mean themilitary option is the sole way forward. Whatis crystal clear though is that something hasto give in Syria.If the military option is the wrong way aboutit, then its opponents must come up with analternative. And fast. Because time is not onthe side of the Syrian people. Just pointingthe finger of blame on ‘western imperialism’for everything wrong in the world can, inmany instances, be indeed justified. But itwill do nothing for the Syrians. At least notnow.
