SYRIAN CRISIS: AMERICAN INVOLVEMENT, A WAY FORWARD?

| 1 Comment
Am sure the whole world now knows of the Syrian civil war and the dastardly effects it has had not only on its citizens and the country itself but also the turmoil it has generated in neighbouring countries like Turkey with refugee figures rising daily. There has been diverse opinions as to the main issues that led to the civil war. It is however established that the people got tired of being ruled by one family since 1971 the Assad family with #Bashar Hafez al-Assad the incumbent president after he took over from his father who had ruled for 30 years. The civil war no doubt has degenerated to a genocide. The maiming of its citizens and the mutilation of countless souls have become a discussion of interest to many. The rise of child soldiers in Syria has been on the rise and become more worrying. Need we mention the use of various weapons of mass destruction to carry out the operations of both camps and its consequential effects on the environment.

White both camps of the government and the rebels have traded accusations, the onslaught on the people has failed to cease. There has also been various top government officials decamping from the government they term despotic. The most shocking thing as been the stance of the world super powers to stay aloof and watch Syria crumble like the walls of Jericho. It is rather bewildering to know that the world has often interfered in less severe civil wars than this with Libya a classic instance. There has been mere words and no actions as some have taken side with the government while others stand by the rebels. Everything seems to have become politicised to the extent that interests weigh far more than affairs of men.

Well, all that appears to be ending as America has taken a rather bold step by offering direct military aid and support to the Syrian rebels. This is just the beginning of a rather event yet to be unravelled bearing in mind that Russia is pro government and have been a major force behind the world ignoring this deadly war against the Syrian people.

I can't help but wonder that is this a step in the right direction or the way forward to end an already difficult crisis? Does empowering a party against the other not a way of deepening the war? America alleges that it has chosen to offer its help because the Syrian government has employed the use of chemical weapons.
