The failure of the European Union to agree on a new arms embargo for Syria is undermining the peace process, Moscow says. But the delivery of S-300 surface-to-air missiles may help restrain warmongers
The impact of the S-300 missile delivery would prevent the Eu/ USA/ France implementing another ‘humanitarian bombing mission’ like they did in Libya, the no-fly zone, before creating a regime change which is what the west is looking to do here in Syria. Syria is the domino to topple before moving into Iran.
Russia is the problem as this move shows, because the west doesn’t want to be drawn into a conflict with Russia, we might say, just yet.
In the game of chess, the West has threatened a piece and Russia has moved to protect it, and the west has backed down within hours. The Syrian conflict will go on then, and as much as the BBC proclaims the UN’s estimation of 80,000 lives lost since the conflict began in 2011, it is clear to me that if the political leaders wished to see an end to this conflict then peace talks would be the order of the day with repeating meetings until progress was made.
Peace is a problem because it leaves Assad in power, and its not the conflict they want ended, its Assad’s rule. That’s why the West will supply arms to the ‘rebel’ forces, but one must ask, who are the rebel forces? No one seems to be clear on this. Could they be mercenary fighters paid for by the West? After all the West seems to have a motive for the conflict, and a motive to supply arms to continue the conflict until regime change is effected. Its just Russia is a thorn in the side of their plan.
That’s why Russia has said…
Russia says it will go ahead with deliveries of S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Syria, and that the arms will help deter foreign intervention.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the missiles were a “stabilising factor” that could dissuade “some hotheads” from entering the conflict.
