Constant Pressure Accelerates The End-assad
Christian Science Monitor asked in her article you should be for Obama to invite Syria to step down a lion Is this important?
The newspaper pointed out that the Obama administration began to increase pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a bid to stop the brutal repression led by army tanks against the civil opposition in the country.
It was announced, the Treasury secretary said yesterday that the ministry Commercial Bank of Syria, the largest state banks, as well as the network’s leading cellular operator Syriatel to the sanctions list. And will freeze any assets of these institutions in the United States and has been outlawed on U.S. banks now have to deal with it.
In a statement to announce the move, said David Cohen, Undersecretary of the Treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence, said the ministry targeting the financial infrastructure that will help in providing support to the lion and its activities banned.
The newspaper said that the inclusion of the new sanctions may not have much practical effect because the United States severely restrict the economic interaction with the Assad regime. But the administration is also considering an additional step which is an open invitation to Assad to step down.
According to White House officials, the decision to terminate his attempt to push the Syrian regime to reform, and to terminate the call instead, is the result of brutal excess of the Syrian security forces towards the opposition rallies by human rights groups say it led to the deaths of more than two thousand people.
But is such a much harsher words will have a real impact to resign Assad has said that Obama has lost its legitimacy in leadership, should lead the country towards reform or step aside.
The newspaper said that Assad had contemplated an example of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who now face elimination after stepping down and decides to fight to the last breath is the preferred option.
But according to some experts, the issuance of a call from the White House to go to the lion would accelerate the disintegration of the government. According to this view, the Syrian elite sees the current U.S. sanctions to try to get Syria away from Iran as it is a tool to end internal repression.
Says one, the clear statement from Obama may break that belief could make Syria’s generals are reviewing their support to the government may make business elites in Damascus and Aleppo begins to move away from the lion.
But as long as there is an invitation to Bashar al-Assad to change or reform process, the leadership position, then add considerable legitimacy and it will say army generals, then why should we challenge the leader of the international community still considers legitimate to some extent, despite the sanctions?
Based on that may not be for Obama but to take this rhetoric, the next step. The evolution of the situation make the Arab states begin to issue appeals to take a stand.Across the GCC and the Arab League expressed concern and called on Assad to withdraw from the brink. More important is what she said Saudi Arabia, the events in Syria is not acceptable to have called to stop the killing machine, and summoned its ambassador in Damascus.
The paper, that these steps by the powerful Gulf state represents an important development the United States should be exploited quickly and to do what it can to maintain the increased pressure, causing a succession of external shocks – as well as to limit internal relentless on the part of protesters – is seeking to eliminate system as soon as possible in order to reduce the duration and extends grinding escalation of brutality and death and hatred that seems to be moving now towards a sectarian conflict and civil war.
