LET US TALK WITH RUSSIA and the  UN SECURITY COUNCIL

to stabilize Syria, Assad and to assure Russia a Warm Water Port

by Lucy Law Webster, WFM Council Member

 

            There are common interests shared by Russia and the USA. One of these would be to stop the war in Syria and assure Putin and Russia its use of the warm water port that is on Syria’s Mediterranean coast. This coast is fortunately in the part of Syria where Syrian President Assad is respected.

 

            Much of the rest of Syria is the home of people who want to change their government. The Kurds want a Kurdish homeland, many other groups are working and fighting for new Post Arab Spring democracy that would not be subject to President Assad. The UN should be instructed by the Security Council to organize referenda in the parts of Syria where the rule of President Assad has been resisted. There is or has been a small unit within the UN Dept of Political Affairs that has the skills to do this. Once these or similar steps are taken, ISIS will be much weakened and will be able to be defeated without much or any help from the United States or from the Israeli air force.
