“How to persuade Putin to drop his seemingly unshakable support for the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad is the main challenge facing the other leaders at this meeting at the lakeside Lough Erne resort in Northern Ireland. The bloody Syrian conflict has now raged for two years and at least 93,000 people have died.”
Well, nobody disputes the interest of Russia in the region, the despicable part is what would Russia do if some places under its direct influence end up with a similar bloodbath ?
Would it be not more reasonable Russia itself would facilitate a transition of the Assad family out of there, into a balanced system ? Syria seems to be Iraq in reverse, where again a minority is subduing a majority, a ‘hot spot.’
