Since three years, the war in Syria has started. It has claimed the lives of thousands of people and forced additional three millions to flee their lands to live in harsh conditions in camps in the neighboring countries. For many people, the war seems pointless and peace is far-reachable. Yet peace is not as harder as they think if these three ways are used efficiently: active negotiations, cutting military support and national reconciliation.
The first feat that the international community strongly insists on for peace restoration in Syria is active negotiations. Both sides of the conflict in Syria, the regime and the military opposition, have to get to the negotiation table to wholeheartedly make every effort to reach a satisfactory solution to their crisis. Negotiations are indeed an effective way to solve international conflicts if both sides give concessions to progress .For instance, after the Second World War, France and Germany succeeded to put an end to their inherited hostility and restored their relationships. Moreover, both of Al-Assad’s regime and the military opposition should appreciate and respect each other’s proposals because if negotiations lack respect and appreciation, they will surely reach an impasse. Most importantly, convening”Geneva2”conference will lessen to some extent the intensity of the conflict. All the sides involving in the war should agree unanimously on the conference resolutions and strive to put an end to the ongoing sectarian war in the country. Negotiations remain useless if violence in Syrian is still escalating in unbearable proportions.
All of war and conflict impacts heavily on public services. This is especially true for the armed services as they are usually on the frontlines when it comes to trying to resolve conflict and bring peace. War is normally defined as a state of open, often prolonged, armed conflict between two or more groups, usually nations, states or other parties. Wars are usually begun through the clash of ...
The second step to be taken to achieve peace in Syria is to cut military support from both of the regime and the opposition for military support prolongs the uprising. Russia and China have signed transactions with Al-Assad’s regime to supply it lavishly with the latest weaponry. Also the opposition has received arms from their Gulf allies namely Saudi Arabia and Qatar with which poorly will fight the government troops. Furthermore, the International Security Council must intervene to stop the flooding of terrorists into Syria. These terrorists, already being trained and incited by fanatic organizations or individuals serving hidden agendas, have committed war crimes in Syria. For example, ”DAESH”( Arabic abbreviation for :the Islamic state of Iraq and Sham) an extremist Islamist militia in both Syria and Iraq has killed children and raped women and enslaved hundreds of civilians in territories under its control. If Al-Assad’s regime falls, these terrorist groups will constitute a real threat to the international security. Besides fighting terrorists, disarming each side from their weapons will quicken the ending of the conflict hence we will get closer to peace. If superpowers go on arming each side in Syria in a conspicuous violation of the international law, war will not witness an end and more war crimes will occur.
Reconciliation is the last part of the peace process. First, the regime and the opposition must put down their arms and this should be done exclusively under the supervision of the UN. Second, all the sects in Syria (The Sunnites, the Alaouites, the Shia…) are requested to hold a national conference in which they declare reconciliation in the presence of the UN’s representatives and all of the superpowers. The sects should sign a coexistence treaty and forget all their old grudges and prevent the war scenario from happening in the future. Third, Syria should be reunified and all citizens must cooperate if reconciliation was to see light. National reconciliation seems to be the safest way to achieve peace but it needs the struggle of the entire people.
In my opinion I do not think the United States of America should go to war with Iraq. Who knows what Iraq has over seas in their dirty, insane, third world country. They probably have bombs the United States does not even know exists. Iraq may also have another country on his side and ready to fight against America. Think of all we could lose if we went to war. Much needed money, military ...
The conflict in Syria is still intensifying and the entire world is just watching without showing even a teardrop to what is happening there. It is the responsibility of the UN and other influential
organizations in the world to implement the above discussed strategies; they should encourage active negotiations, prevent arms from being smuggled in Syria and promote national reconciliation. If all that is done, the war nightmare in Syria will be trampled into oblivion.
