May be they are handing the West rope to hang themselves eventually; when they are so eager to do that.
The West is bankrupt, and all they want is more war. May be China and Russia want to be generous, and allow them, to fight themselves into abyss.
Or may be China and Russia want the West to keep busy, so that they do not appear at their door steps; as they are encircling them already.
The West is going bankrupt with all these Middle Eastern entanglements, while Russia and China are swimming in cash! Could there be ulterior motives here?

Interesting that the BBC just interviewed a Malian on TV, who spoke of the weapon spillover into Mali initiated this crisis, yet night after night, the US media skirts around the Libya issue, never mentioning it.
American media treats the public like children, or worse - too mentally unstable for disturbing news.
The BBC is far from being credible source of news but the good news is british people are open minded and more aware of what is going on in the world whilst the american media is a Mere laughing stock and american people are the dumbest of the dumb selfish greedy idiots who follows their warmongering extremist evangelical scumbags like a herd of sheep obama is the best thing happen to america but when it comes to africa he is the most dangerous president since he came to office all the wars and move to africa

Oh dear, Rtloder I had no idea you were so affected by it. You may be assured and comforted to know the curry I offer is sweet and given to one worthy participator in this discussion in good heart.
I'm afraid I need ask you to forgive my ignorance in Syrian and that regions history, but what you accounted to me is really interesting. Quite interesting in fact, I hope you don't mind my curiosity's needs to delve deeper with just a few questions. Iraq becoming tribal was that with Saddam Hussein? I think it is good a president that allows people the freedom to worship how they like, if that is part of pluralism then that is admirable. If the Ba'ath party is as popular as it is, then perhaps voters would vote for a different leader from the same party if the policies is what matter?
If there comes peace to Syria, and to sustain peace Assad steps down, other countries may claim all the victory they like but it's the Ba'ath party and it's seats in Government that mean the most. So with fresh elections if the Ba'ath can retain the seats, policies that allow freedom of religion would remain, and you will still have the right to worship the way you like. Not everyone will be happy, but atleast this may be a step towards sustainable peace and prosperity for Syria.
Thanks to you inv e I've discovered a new leaf in my book that's added lead to my pencil. I may have mentioned it before the Ba'ath party was a reaction to Pan Arab failure when Syria seceded from Egypt 1961,but the unity it hoped to create with Iraq failed to eventuate. Syrian Ba'athists split from their Iraqi counterparts in 1966.
Iraqi Ba'athists got in by a military coup 1968. Then in 79 Saddam became President by party agreement. But he went straight to war with Iran, so there was never any good times to come back too.
Tribal worked in Iraq because Shia believe it's not wrong to pretend in order to save your life, Sunni are unable to bend with the wind, I know I'm one of them, but I had opportunity to study most don't.
Syria has got to be separate to give democracy a fair go. So does Iraq, maybe the Ba'ath Party will reconstitute itself, now Pan Arab is defunct, may be the President won't want to run, but one thing is for sure the administration of Government organs won't be surrendered except by the franchise of the Syrians,or by the demise of the Syrian Armed Forces. And if that happens we'll join with the terrorists and fight whoever is there, I won't, I don't fight I don't like even being bullied the way that I am, but theologically for me that will be the Will of Allah.
The dialogue we want to pursue is with 8 existing parties and the Socialist Movement and whatever the opposition want to throw up, except for foreign armed factions of which there are 35.
Its not only the fact that it wouldn't have worked 2 years ago, as Syrians were want to believe in pie in the sky and now they don't. But also because like in Iraq it has to work because huge displacements of people will not happen in the present situation.
The US created relative peace in Iraq by paying Sunni not to attack until they were gone, that's no solution now.
The fact is democracy with varying degrees of autonomy is the only thing that will work.
Religious divide is community, not political economy, but greedy people exploit religious community to advantage political economy and this is what has to change, there is no other way.

It was Eisenhower and Kennedy that had Lumumba murdered, but unless we can reach a settlement in the Middle East what pattern could you advocate in Africa, which is still pre Libya, with China and Russia unable to resist supporting the old Colonial
Role of imperial powers?

Somalia and the Congo DR are success stories for the recolonisation of Africa, there is little cover for a guerilla war in Northern Mali and it's an impediment to political solution, there are many African Nations
capable of forceful persuasion but they won't side with the Islamic Fundamentalists rampaging , Mali should call a cease fire and search for regional Muslim consensus.
The weakness of the French position is evident in their inability to scuttle the market value of recourse and produce, the never ending recession is impossible to exploit militarily, that's what they want a cover for their inability to pay all the parasites they got on their books.

No, there is no difference. No NATO member will do military action, without agreement of other members. So when one acts, they all act in the background, or silently.

Not true, if a Nato country is attacked, that is a different story, because attacking one is like attacking all, but there is not an issue for one to go ahead. If that country asks for help then it is voted on.
