"While the people have demanded the fall of their regimes in streets and squares across the Arab world this year, those regimes have offered a persistent, if predictable, reply: 'the people just aren’t ready for us to go yet.' This accusation of unpreparedness has taken a few different forms in different contexts: 'The people are too sectarian' (Bahrain and Syria); 'too tribal' (Libya and Yemen); 'too Islamist' (Egypt, Libya, Syria); 'too underdeveloped', 'too radical' 'too violent', 'too weak and defenseless', et cetera. In every case, the people are portrayed as inept and a threat to themselves. Meanwhile, regimes clinging to power in the face of mass protests portend that the only solution to this unpreparedness is their steady hand ferrying their societies into the harbor of democratic governance (eventually)."
THAT WAS THE SAME EXCUSE EMPLOYED BY THE MILITARY DICTATORSHIPS IN LATIN AMERICA UNTIL FEW YEARS AGO.
"In a report published ealier in Arabic last June 24th about the political falling dues that would change the course of the Western pressures on Syria, we had details and information about the issue telling that France and Britain had set next September a deadline for ending the military operations in Libya and for finishing the toppling of Colonel Mua'mmar Al-Gaddafi."
"Damascus fears that NATO may redeploy its forces to Syria after the termination of its military campaign in Libya. If this happens, Syria’s prospects for democratic development will be killed stone dead, according to both left-wing and liberal groups of that country’s moderate opposition."
"French President Nicolas Sarkozy has called a high-level meeting on Libya's post-Gaddafi future and promised support - but no military action - for opposition forces in Syria. The event is to take place in Paris on 1 September - the 42nd anniversary of the coup which brought Colonel Gaddafi to power."
"Bashar Al Assad's political decisions have rendered him illegitimate in the eyes of many Syrians. But fear of what could come next has kept his regime alive. [...] Syrians' fears are further reinforced by the fact that most of the opposition conferences were organised by the Muslim Brotherhood, the only non-state actor in recent history to slaughter other Syrians along sectarian lines."
"Russia has submitted its own draft resolution on Syria to the UN. The draft is sanction-free and does not condemn Damascus for its actions against protesters, but urges President Assad to implement the promised reforms."
"Yasser Hourieh, head of the Baath Party Regional Leadership in Syria and deputy chairman of National Dialogue tells RIA Novosti correspondent Sergey Sarymov about the course of events in Syria and implementing reforms, explains the connection between the geopolitical situation in the region and the events inside the country."
