Exodus time in Syria

Former UN chief Kofi Annan, who has been mandated by the world body and the Arab League, to pull Syria back from the brink is in need of being heard by President Bashar Al Assad. With his earlier commitments to do away with violence and stop using indiscriminate force not being honoured, Damascus is already in bad light. The intention of the world community to see normalcy restored in Syria should be respected, and the only way to attain that objective would be a complete pull back of security forces back to the barracks and opening a window of dialogue with the aggrieved elements at home and abroad.
Nonetheless, it seems nothing has changed for the good in Syria in the last few weeks. The veto respite is apparently being used by Syria as a power-politics ploy to further strengthen its hold on the strife-ridden republic. Reports of manslaughter and excesses on women and children are now widely documented, which had compelled the UN’s humanitarian chief Valerie Amos to call on the international community to move in before it gets too late. Similarly, reports of diaspora and refugees amassing on Lebanese border are quite disturbing. This could come to explode the regional dynamics and threaten the country’s integrity in the long run. The dispensation in Damascus is simply misreading the good spirit of the world community and the dispossessed Syrians who had only longed for stability and reforms, respectively.
The reign of terror cannot continue like this and something serious is in need of being done, sooner than later. Russia and China who had shielded the regime to this day for reasons of real-politick have a liability to dispense when it comes to peace and security. Moscow has to revisit to what happened when it sent its foreign minister to Damascus in the wake of the veto triumph, and study its aftermath. Assad and his men have played tricked on the international community and that is squarely evident from the volatility that is surging day in and out. The crude manner in which locals are being victimised as the army seizes back the lost territory is horrendous. Annan and Amos should talk straight with Assad to make a difference.
