UPPDATERING

Syria needs an overhaul – Lavrov, Brahimi

”Implementing a workable ceasefire supposes the presence of international observers on Syrian soil. Sending them is a matter for the UN Security Council. The next Syrian mission must be considerably stronger than the last one that had to be rolled up in August.”
Mr Lavrov urged the Security Council to get down to considering concrete plans for its next Syria mission. He also pointed out that Russia is the only outside power that continues to maintain contact with both the Syrian opposition and the Syrian government. This makes it the best possible mediator in the Syrian conflict.

Intervju med Thierry Meyssan – ”Al-Qaeda-NATO nexus destabilizing Syria” – av Kourosh Ziabari för Tehran Times

This war against Syria began in February 2011, at the same time with the war against Libya, and many people are confused, because quite at the same moment, we have the revolutionary events in Tunisia, and some may think that the revolution in Tunisia is equal to the imperialist wars in Libya and Syria. Of course, when the U.S. sent some troops to Syria to wage a war, it didn’t send men in uniform; they used secret agents to make trouble inside Syria and justify an international military action. Because Russia and China vetoed their draft resolutions at the UN, they weren’t able to enter Syria with the assistance of NATO, as they did in Libya.
So they choose the plan b, and this plan was to send mercenaries with the financial aid of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and destabilize the country and to provoke a military coup d’etat inside Syria, and Ms. Clinton repeatedly talked about such a coup in Syria. But as this plan failed, we saw two big operations; one being the July 18 when they bombed the residence of the main leader of the National Security Council of Syria, and also September 26 plan when they tried, but failed, to kill the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff. A great resistance by the army hindered their plans for a military coup. So, they don’t have any other solution, and probably they will accept the peace plan of Russia.

larouche.se – Syriska rebeller har amerikansk luftvärnsteknik

Rysslands försvarsstabschef general Nikolaj Makarov rapporterade i RIA Novosti på torsdagen den 24:e oktober om hur syriska rebeller nu förfogar över bärbara luftvärnsrobotar (ManPADS), inklusive amerikansktillverkade Stinger-robotar. Generalen tillade, att Ryssland fortfarande utreder från vem artilleripjäserna kommer.
Redan i augusti hade amerikanska NBC rapporterat, att ManPADS av oklar kvantitet och kvalitet nått rebellerna, möjligtvis med Turkiets, Saudiarabiens eller Qatars hjälp, vilka varit de ivrigaste förspråkarna av militärt stöd till oppositionen.

sana.sy – Lavrov: Foreign Forces Must Assume Responsibility Regarding Sides They Support in Syria, Brahimi: Bombings in Residential Areas Classified as Terrorist Acts

In a joint press conference with Brahimi on Monday, Lavrov said his talks with the UN Envoy seek to find new steps to end violence and bloodshed in Syria and launch dialogue, regretting that Brahimi’s efforts for a truce during Eid al-Adha holiday weren’t heeded.
Lavrov stressed that the sending observers or peacekeeping forces to Syria must be approved by Syrian government, and that such a decision can only be taken by the Security Council and after the Syrian government agrees to it.

He called on all foreign forces to assume their responsibilities, specifically regarding the sides they support in Syria, stressing that the urgent issue is committing all the Syrians who are fighting each other to a ceasefire and have them initiate dialogue.
Lavrov said that sides in Syria must be pressured to send balanced signals rather than have certain sides support specific sides to perpetuate violence, stressing the need to convince these sides to commit to a ceasefire and transition to political dialogue.

Sharmine Narwani på Russia Today – US MILITARY COMMANDER QUESTIONS TURKEY STORYLINE ON SYRIA SHELLING

Hon pratar om något som inte tagits upp mycket, inte heller i alternativa medier, amerikanska militärers uttalanden om att de inte vet vem eller vilka det är som skjutit granater mot Turkiet från den syriska sidan – Origin of Syrian shells into Turkey unclear, US general says – resonemang på moonofalabama.org om vad dessa uttalanden kan betyda – Obama To Erdogan: Don’t Trick Us – kan det vara så att USA försöker dra sig ur Syrien-projektet? Mera troligt är väl i så fall att man bara vill vänta till efter presidentvalet.

Narwani har också intervjuats av Press TV – Disarming foreign-backed insurgents will lead to ceasefire in Syria: Analyst (inslaget finns av någon anledning i två versioner här är den kortare – Foreign-backed Syria insurgents used ceasefire to recharge: Analyst) – än en gång har ett försök att få till stånd en vapenvila missbrukats av de väpnade gängen, enda sättet att få slut på det ohyggliga våldet är att de som backar upp och beväpnar dessa gäng slutar upp med det.
