A Premature Congratulation to the Syrian Nation

December 7, 2016


Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy positively devastated the Syrian nation, which will not fully recover within our lifetimes from the senseless barbarity she unleashed for the most vile of reasons. And some of the “refugees” in the West are indeed legitimate refugees, not scheming jihadis or feckless deserters.

I would like to take a moment to shine a spotlight on America’s “canonical” Orthodox jurisdictions, all of whom either remained largely silent as their brothers abroad were subjected to genocide or, in some prominent cases, actively sided with the genocide to curry favor with the American regime they (understandably) figured would surely be the victor.

They were not the victor. Sovereignty prevailed. Arab Orthodox Christianity prevailed and will (barely) survive. The Syrian nation prevailed. The legitimate refugees will be heading home in the coming months to begin the arduous process of picking up the pieces of a war-torn nation.

From the very beginning of this very long war, they have had my support. And they’ll continue to have it. I’m a stakeholder (albeit a marginal one) in the victory of the Syrian people in their struggle against the twin forces of Jewish globalism and ISIS radicalism. It’s all the more winning for me in a year jam-packed with so much winning. As tired as I am of winning, I manage to find myself elated once again in 2016.

But it’s a bittersweet victory for the tens of millions of Syrians who have nothing left now but an intact nation in control of its destiny. But that’s a start. The recent past is horrifying and the present is miserable, but the future is very bright for a people who took on the entire world, faced down boggling odds, and won decisively. While Farage’s Brexit and Trump’s election may weigh more heavily in the popular media and global imagination, make no mistake that Assad’s victory in Syria overcame the greatest odds against the global elites and is the single greatest victory for nationalism of 2016.

The New York Times somberly reported today in its article entitled How the War Ends in Syria,

The civil war in Syria is over. Now it is time to stop the fighting.

Aided by Russia, Iran, Shiite militias and Hezbollah, the government of President Bashar al-Assad is on the verge of taking Aleppo, once Syria’s largest city. Supported by its powerful allies, the Syrian Army will then move to eliminate the remaining pockets of resistance, notably around the northern city of Idlib.

With Assad’s forces on the march in Aleppo and hope for some kind of eminent “surge” of money and weapons to ISIS and affiliates firmly squashed by Trump’s victory last month, it’s really just a matter of figuring out how to get America’s jihadi and mercenary proxies safely out of the country so that they can live to destabilize another sovereign regime another day.

The Assad regime has prevailed through tactics of unspeakable brutality — barrel bombs, starvation, the targeting of hospitals and rescue workers and the suspected use of chemical weapons — but it has prevailed.

Even the most gullible American voters have had it with this cloying and disingenuous moralizing. Hell, an analysis of the election results confirms a key reason for Trump’s victory was Hillary’s warmongering suppressing her own turnout. Millions of very left wing Americans who surely abhor Trump and everything he stands for couldn’t bring themselves to drag themselves to the polling booth to rubber stamp four years of Dubya in a pantsuit. War is hell, and it’s a hell that the New York Times clique and Hillary unleashed on the Syrian people.

Though the outcome is clear, how the war ends matters greatly. The United States has an interest in a result that allows as many Syrians as possible to go home, that ensures the total defeat of the Islamic State and other extremist groups, and that safeguards the Syrian Kurds, who have been America’s principal ally against the Islamic State.

What they’re trying to say here is that they’re eager to litigate the terms of their defeat. There’s no room for that. This was no half-victory. This was no gentlemen’s skirmish. This was a total war, and the fate of the opposition now lays entirely in the hands of the man whose tribe they viciously drove to the brink of extinction.

The United States and Russia could start by negotiating terms that would end the fighting between the regime and the moderate opposition. The terms might include an amnesty for the rebels, the right of Syrian refugees to return and equal access to reconstruction assistance. It could even include some promises of basic political freedoms, international monitoring and the removal of Syrian officials (not including Mr. Assad) responsible for the worst crimes.

That’s a pretty impressive list of demands you’ve got there. “We’ll agree to our eminent defeat on the condition that you go ahead and hand us all of our objectives and imprison all of your own generals for us.” …Ummm, no?

European countries have a strong interest in creating conditions to encourage refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey to return to Syria rather than heading west.

Is that how the whole refugee thing works? The way it ought to work is that they’re shipped back when the war stops. Why do the refugees set the terms? They were afforded “refuge,” and now they go back. Period. Full stop. Anything other than that unmasks them as mere invaders.

America should work to ensure the diplomatic engagement of European allies to bring an end to hostilities, as well as their financial support for reconstruction in Syria.

NATO (read: American) money needs to stay out of Syria. Not because we don’t owe them under the traditional “you break it you buy it” code, but because it would inevitably come with strings attached to further drag out the dispute and compromise Assad’s rule. We’ve been “helping” in Syria for several years now, and our help ain’t helpful.

Finally, the United States must provide long-term guarantees to the Syrian Kurds, who now control a large territory, not all of which is Kurdish. For now, the Syrian Army is in no position to take on the Kurdish forces, but eventually, Mr. Assad will surely try to recreate the centralized Arab state he inherited from his father. He will also want to use Syria’s oil resources — much of which are now under Kurdish control — to finance reconstruction.

The denial here is staggering. You lost.

One option is to establish an American-protected Kurdish safe area in northeastern Syria similar to the one created in northern Iraq after the first gulf war. That expensive option is complicated by the inability of the United States to use Turkish air bases to enforce it.

Strike that. The denial here is clinical. He’s actually speculating about our direct military involvement in a Korean-style bifurcation of a foreign nation. He’s still, after all we’ve all been through, under the impression that the United States military can and should be arbitrarily leveraged for even the most marginal of geopolitical objectives.

President-elect Donald J. Trump has stated his intention to work with Russia and Mr. Assad to defeat the Islamic State. The sooner America reaches out to Russia, ideally before January’s handover of administration, the better.

I’m sure Putin and Trump will find some way to manage the Syrian situation without your graciously free advice, you obsolete and irrelevant neocon cockroach.
