Diplomacy seems to be the only option with Syria

The conflict ridden country which has seen continued clashes and civilian as well as military deaths since March last year, hasn’t seen much change rather things on the ground seem gloomier for the people of Syria who are battling not just the agitations within the country but conflicting opinions about the reality of the situation around the world making the end seem farther that they had imagined. While talks and discussions in the west and the middle east after Kofi Annan’s peace plan proposal for Syria was introduced, have gained renewed pace the extent of their impact is essentially a function of the receptiveness of the Assad administration in Syria which is facing increasing international pressure and internal security failure making the entire situation turn against the government which claims to have no part in the blood bath and civil disruptions which were a collective result of masked militia and hysteria created by the opposition as a means of turning the populace against the pro-Iranian government to facilitate American-Israeli interests in the region.

The opinion in most discussions that has been underlined is the need to exercise restraint and indulge in diplomacy at all levels of interaction with the Assad administration in order to have any positive result especially in terms of obtaining a cease-fire and admission of international medical aid into the country. With Secretary of State Hillary Clinton assuming a skeptical stance in regards to any change in the Syrian situation has clearly indicated the American inability to avail any end to the crisis due to severe economic and political constraints obviating the minutest possibility of a military intervention in Syria in contrast to Libyan crisis last year. However, while reports have already emerged about acceptance of Annan’s peace plan by Assad, the skepticism although misplaced is prevalent. While Clinton’s position in disparaging the Syrian acceptance of the peace plan is self-defeating and downright self-contradictory, analysts believe that a proxy war against Syria is being desired such that there occurs no American or Israeli participation but the eventual intent of regime change is fulfilled ultimately. To what extent this is true is a matter of vehement debate in several circles in America.
