THE POLITICAL AND MILITARY SPECTRUM OF THE SYRIA DISCOURSE.
The primary precondition for resolving the crisis in Syria implicit its national, international and regional dynamics is the understanding of the constituents of the political and military discourse.
That is, the current Syrian government and a peaceful domestic political opposition, the predominantly foreign backed political and militant opposition, the international backers of the pro-regime-change opposition, the United Nations, the Arab League, and the dynamics of their interplay with one another.
THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF SYRIA. (NCS)
THE REVOLUTIONARY COUNCIL OF SYRIA (RCS)
THE FREE SYRIAN ARMY. (FSA)
The Free Syrian Army (FSA) was constituted by deserted officers and troops of the Syrian military during the summer of 2011. Its official commander is Colonel Rias al-Assad, but the FSA failed to establish an actual central or general command structure. The FSA initially claimed that its function was to protect peaceful protesters from the military forces of the Syrian government.
In a number of well documented cases however, members of the FSA attacked peaceful protesters, blaming the shooting on the regular Syrian military. Some of these crimes have been committed in collusion with journalists from Al-Jazeera and led to the expulsions of Al-Jazeera journalists from Syria.

THE SALAFIST ~ WAHABIST FIGHTERS IN SYRIA
What the report of the International Crisis Group, which is funded by the self-proclaimed philanthropist, philosopher and multi billionaire George Soros, fails to elicit is, that the majority of the funding, training and arming of these groups is provided by Saudi Arabia.
Wahabi, or Salafi organizations represent a convergence of German World War II Fascism and a totalitarian and radical interpretation of Islam under the protectorate of the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia.
THE KURDISH MINORITIES IN SYRIA.
The Baath Party is the greatest Syrian Party. Although it has been criticized for holding on to governance under emergency laws too long, thus stalling a much wanted and much needed development of political competition and reforms, both the Party and President Al-Assad enjoy very high approval ratings.
~ Israel´s occupation of the Syrian Golan Highs and plans for a permanent annexation of the Golan by Israel;~ Syria´s support of Palestine against the illegal occupation by Israel and security concerns that arise due to this policy;~ the lack of convergence in the energy needs of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Russia versus those of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the USA and key members of the European Union;~ the position of Syria as the sole remaining ally to Russia in the Middle East,~ Syria´s role as a stabilizing factor in Lebanon and related security concerns; the threat of religious or ethnic fanaticism and ethnic or religious violence that threatens to undermine the protection of ethnic and religious minorities as well as equal opportunity which is enshrined in the Syrian constitution.
The potential legal and political and security implication with regards to the Syria crisis, which is the potential of spiraling into a regional war with global implications inherently dangerous.
~ Aggravate the crisis in Syria and obstruct national dialog national reconciliation and the building of a genuine democratic culture, genuine democratic institutions and a genuine political discourse toward reforms.~ Aggravate the influx of extremist organizations to Syria, creating grave security challenges not only in Syria but for the region as well as globally.~ Preventing populations in western and Arab nations who directly or indirectly support the armed or pro-regime change opposition from making informed decisions within their nation’s political discourse, thus obstructing both the Syrian reform process, reconciliation and Syrian, regional and global conflict resolution.~ Preventing members of parliaments from making informed decisions which have a direct impact not only on Syria and the Middle East, but which have potentially dangerous global, geo-politic implications.~ Prevent a genuine discourse for conflict resolution at the United Nations General Assembly.~ Psychologically bias honest brokers. The same principles which are active in courts of law, where the accused has been subject to being sentenced by the media are operand within the context of conflict resolution. Even though one has access to all available objective information it becomes impossible to make an unbiased decision.
