Syria’s Future at the Ballot

We maintain our position that the United States is on the wrong side in the Syrian conflict for encouraging and arming the so-called “moderates,” which consist of the insurgents and foreign fighters in Syria.
In August 2011, President Barack Obama said, “the time has come for President Assad to step aside.” This ill-advised policy has globally strengthened the al-Qaeda and their cooperatives whose ultimate goals are the destruction of the world, as we know it.
What is most needed in Syria is peace! Arming people in Syria would not bring peace, but would further increase the degree of carnage and destruction. Both Russia and Iran clearly see the destructive impact of al-Qaeda’s bloody ideology on the world and that is why they steadfastly support the Assad regime. After the tragic 9-11 and the Boston Marathon, the United States could have also come up with the same conclusion that al-Qaeda Syria is disastrous for the world. Unfortunately, the United States’, encouraging the Syrian conflict to oust Assad, has resulted in the deaths of over 150,000 people plus the displacement of over 1.5 million.
We urge the Obama Administration to stop supporting the Syrian conflict, whether directly or through surrogates (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and others) and allow the Syrian people to decide on their leader through an internationally supervised ballot. To start the process, the United States could work with Syria, Russia, and Iran to provide some incentives for the Assad regime to cooperate in favor of a democratic political institution where the Alawis, Shias, Christians, Jews, and other can all live in peace.
