Utförlig artikel av Christof Lehmann – The Dynamics of the Crisis in Syria. Conflict Versus Conflict Resolution. (Part 1)
After 19 months of violent conflict in Syria a feasible solution seems farther removed than ever. The influx of fundamentalist Salafist or Wahabist fighters which have been streaming to Syria since the failure of two major Free Syrian Army assaults on Aleppo in June and July 2012 made it increasingly difficult to build a coherent and credible Syrian political and military opposition among the proponents of regime-change.

Det här är viktigt att dokumentera, om det kan slås fast att vapen användes och poliser dödades redan i början av oroligheterna, mars 2011 – Syria and the Myth of the Peaceful Start of the Protests
“In an uncharacteristic gesture intended to ease tensions the government offered to release the detained students, but seven police officers were killed, and the Baath Party Headquarters and courthouse were torched, in renewed violence on Sunday.” 
Obviously, the unexpected kindness of the government, following both reports, was answered by the fact that, for the first time, police officers were killed by protesters, who had already brought weapons with them – apparently, they have appeared with the intent to exert violence.
The incidents in Daraa show, that the story of the supposedly non-violent protests, to which the government has responded with raw power from the beginning, belongs to the realm of fairy tales.
Although the UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay has demanded the investigation of the six, in the same month, killed protesters on 22 March 2011, but she said no word about the killed police officers or the presence of “armed protesters”; she even spoke about “peaceful demonstrators” , and at the same time, she has prejudiced the Western reading of the events, and she also has instrumentalized the victims.
