was the fact that the nation had been governed for such a long time under emergency laws that many of the political processes which were based on emergency laws had become informally established as systemic and that it would demand a great amount of political energy to overcome the inertia of the systemic colossus that was based on emergency laws, but which had become institutionalized.
and more imminent obstacle was the fact that Syria since 1973 has been in a permanent low intensity state of war with Israel and her allies.No open war, but intelligence and special operations here, there, tit for tat attacks, a shadowy subversion as well as a permanent public relations warfare that scapegoated and positioned Syria as rough state, sponsor of terrorism, torturous regime, and what not.
The involvement of foreign nations, the instrumentalization of local elements, and the goal to control resources, economy, and geo-politically as well as strategically significant locations.Popular consent with contemporary or Modo-Colonial transgressions is commonly manufactured by Western Main Stream Media by eliciting fabled advocacy for freedom, democracy, human rights or stability while nothing could be farther from the truth.
Four new political parties have been registered and can take part in the next coming elections, besides and on equal terms with the Socialist Arab Baath Party.Now those Syrians who really are interested in political and social reforms, regardless if they have ties to or are favoring the one or the other party or not have hard and difficult decisions to make too.
“What Syria of the Future and what Future for Syria do I want?How?At what cost?At what risk?Who is actually representing my ideas~ or at least a political program I can live with and accept?”
Since many of its members are anonymous; whom would I actually be supporting?Is it in the best interest of myself and my country to support a political organization that has ties to Brzezinski and Kissinger?
The only clear message from the NCS is “and us the power and we show you who we are and what we want” which is not exactly a signal that lets one assume that the NCS can provide reform, political stability, safeguard human rights, develop democratic, pluralistic institutions, guaranty gender equality and a policy that embraces the full spectrum of ethnicities and religions in Syria.
Do I really want to invest my trust in a shadowy organization with that track record?What alternatives are there?
It would not have had the military muscle to control the country from descending into chaos.
It would not have had the political program to unify the nation and its full spectrum of ethnic, religious and political groups, it has no official opinion on the Palestinian issue, no program how to deal with Israel that still occupies the Golan Heights.
In other words ~ a successful subversion would have resulted in a Syria that would have descended into utter chaos ~ and it would have taken years of misery, suffering and violence before the country could eventually have been stabilized.
The really important question is ”Do I really want to trust anybody who would inflict this infamy on me and my country in coalition with foreign elements ~ what more to expect of these people ~ are they having an ethical position which I can embrace ?”
to publicly turn the back on anyone who resists giving up the armed subversion attempt ~ if necessary to flee any area where armed insurgents operate.It would be the fastest way to reveal the fact that most of the armed insurgency consists of foreign or heavily foreign supported elements who are in fact a minority that tyrannizes an entire nation.It is the fastest way to bring an end to the violence, and most importantly, it is the fastest track towards being able to fully work for political reforms and future elections.It is the fastest way to maintaining Syrian sovereignty inside Syria, to the detriment of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel and NATO who would have liked the exact opposite.
It is also a solution that will be vehemently opposed by those foreign interests who would like to see a weak, unstable and chaotic Syria for the foreseeable future as part of the strategic isolation of Iran and Russia.The new Syrian constitution, which defines Syria as an Arab State, as part of the Arab Nation is after all a direct slap into the face of Modo-Colonialism and Zionism and it will be opposed as any nation that faces colonialism.
