Russian creativity in the "Great World War" in Syria
First of all we have to accept that Russia is leading today an alliance, which consists of countries and forces that are fighting terrorism in Syria. I adopted the name "Axis of Values" for this alliance in a previous article, because the common factor in this alliance is not the religion or the sect or the common ideology, but the values. It has become clear for all countries and forces in this "Axis of Values" that, the current battle in Syria is a global war led by USA, and many European and regional countries are participating in it, but they all moved far from the values of freedom, democracy, human rights and state sovereignty guaranteed by international law. All these values became victims in the Syrian "Great World War" as a result of the behaving of an alliance claims that it holds these values but it practices something does not have any relation to these Values. When we talk about countries in the alliance led by the USA, we do not mean the people in these countries, but the governments representing the ruling elites in these countries.
I have used the term "Great World War", "quoting the writer Michael Awad" for the accuracy of this term in describing the Syrian war, it's a global war in all meanings and trends, global more than the first and the second world wars, both in terms of period or in terms of participation of great powers in this war, or in terms of equipment used and in terms of quality and numbers of the participants in this war, and finally in terms of affecting the future of the whole world, the impact of the effects cannot be ignored at the regional and international levels.
When we talk about the Russian creativity, we do not forget the immense creativity shown by President Bashar al-Assad and his great patience so that the world can actually see the truth in Syria, that the Syrian government is fighting terrorists not revolutionaries. And we do not forget loyal and creative attitude of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Islamic resistance in Lebanon, and Iran through the speed of decision-making and understanding the reality of the Syrian war, through the position announced by Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and declared that these terrorists are more dangerous than Israel itself, but they are its tools in the region.
When we talk about Russian creativity, we need to remember the international situation and the position of world public opinion through control of the western media, which can be summarized that Europe and the United States and their allies were representing the pro-democracy, freedoms and human rights and opposing dictatorships and repression in all its forms, and they therefore were supporting color revolutions as a sort of revolution, which aims to get freedom and to get rid of authoritarian regimes, of course, before this thing turns out and the color revolutions clearly were just tools of the United States and its allies to achieve geopolitical interests.
Russian creativity began in these difficult circumstances through the relatively rapid participation in the war against terrorism in Syria. The Situation of Russia is different from the situation of other of Syria's regional allies, who knew that the Syrian war is a war on the existence and the choice of their countries, they were previously on the US terror lists. The Russian vision could see the future correctly and knows that the Syrian war is a stage of the big world war that occurs in order to control the whole world, because this controlling of the world is the only remaining way for the United States and its allies to maintain their superiority, and perhaps their existence in the present form. Such Russian vision is represented by the rules and the geopolitical foundations of the philosopher and thinker Alexander Dugin.
The Russian creativity in managing the Syrian war was clear in the diplomatic behavior of the Russian leadership through adopting the step by step strategy to change the concepts, that was prevailing at the beginning of the Syrian war, through the policy of dragging the international and regional parties to new locations, to adopt new concepts enshrined in international law, and at the same time through exploiting the time to focus on western manipulation about the concept of terrorism. In addition to that, the Russian policy was able to demonstrate the fact that the militants in Syria are extremist terrorists carrying Wahhabism, and they do not hold any human values or any fundamental rules of the international law.
Observers can easily see the change in the terminology about the Syrian crisis. The Russian focus on the separation of the "moderate opposition" from the terrorists.
I am confident that the Russians know very well that there is no moderate opposition between the militants, who kill innocents in Syria. They brought the international community to the fact that United States and its allies have no influence on these "moderate opposition", or have an unwillingness to separate them from Al nusra-Front, of course, for the implementation of them in the project in Syria and in the region. In any case the concepts began to change, and it became clear that that the US-led war on terror is not real and Russia is behind the actual global battle against terrorism. Therefore Russia triumphed with its allies in the greatest and the most complex battle in the modern history in Aleppo. One of the results of this battle in Aleppo is the separation of the so-called "moderate faction" from terrorism, the situation now in Syria shows that the most large unusabke areas in Syria are with terrorist groups (Al raqqa and Palmyra with Daesh and Idlib with Alnusra-front), and no one can claim to defend the moderate opposition or the rebels when the Syrian army and its allies end the terrorist presence in those areas.
Through the Russian patience and creativity in the step by step policy, and of course, through the patience of the allies on the ground, after losing a lot of blood, a lot of the terminology changed, we moved from the concept of transitional government (the first Geneva Conference) to the choice of the Syrian people for its leadership (in the UN Security Council Resolution 2254), and now as we see, in the recent conference of foreign and defense ministers of Russia, Iran and Turkey, we moved to a new concept that does not only preserve the unity of the Syrian land under the leadership of al-Assad, but also marks the beginning of an alliance to fight Daesh and Al nusra-Front, which was until the end of the battle of Aleppo, was backed by the United States and all regional allies.
Next time will be full of pleasant surprises for Russia and for the alliance of resistance. The "axis of values" draws on Syria a new map for the entire world. Russia is leading the global war on terrorism and sacrificed for the values, we'll find an echo among the peoples of the whole world sustains the Russian position and seeks to get closer to Russia. We see some effects of that, peoples In the west started to know which bad situation their governments took them to, the winds of change began in the United States and in France and we will see similar effects in other European countries, the main culprit of this is really caused by the Syrian war.
The victory in the battle of Aleppo means a victory in the "Great World War" in Syria, and this great victory will have significant effects on the international geopolitical situation, Russia will inevitably be the largest international player who draws the lines of this new situation. Victorious Syria will be under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad, a main regional player practicing its role it deserves, through history and through the greatness of the sacrifices made by the Syrian people and their allies, and through the greatness of the blood of the martyrs.
