At last, the president of the United States of America Barrack Obama, admits that there’s no solution in Syria during his presidential term, and in that admission there’s an honest stand of the Syrian revolution that Obama kept for four years, but the surprise came with the occasion he declared that stand in, as it came after his meeting with The Leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in Camp David, which was thought that Obama was going to propose an offer of a partnership for the Gulf leaders in solving urgent files of the area, as far as the issue the Iranian nuclear program, and especially the Syrian situation.
This honesty that manifested itself in an unprecedented way in Obama’s speech deflated a lot of hopes and analysis about reflections about the Camp David Summit on the field conditions in Syria. Naturally a stand to end the Syrian conflict entirely wasn’t suspected by Obama, except of a lot of hopes and outlooks for some scenarios that could be reached between the Gulf’s leaders and the United States president, was dependent on the summit as its basis, for an example; the decoding ban of the arrival of some of the Anti-Aircraft to the fighters of the Free Syrian Army that are known well to Washington as it communicates with them without a broker, especially in the south, and in that a standard for the success of the summit, proceeding from a base that the credibility of any stand by Obama is counted by his stand from Syria itself, certainly that in any American commitments outside the Syrian field, in which Iran has the broader influence, and the most dangerous currently, not so much to build upon, as how the Yemen crisis showed that the Gulf countries can deal with it on its own, and it did that with the “Operation Storm Decisive”, but the situation in Syria is different due to the presence of many regional players where their interests intersect a lot with the Gulf countries, but not to the extent that it’s a stand, or a unified vision for the perfect step in facing Assad’s Regime.
In the US-GCC summit, Obama was trying to evade talking about Syria in the speech he made following the departure of the delegations to the presidential resort, until the press conference which he held after the conclusion of the talks came, and in it, Obama showed a contradictious stand with the content of the final statement of the summit, while the statement ruled out Assad, from Syria’s future, Obama didn’t, and the American President turned to his fate only when the reporters and journalists started asking their questions, and the surprise came in the notch regarding with the chemical weapons, when Obama considered that the most important thing to Washington was getting rid of the Assad’s chemical arsenal. And when he was asked about the chlorine gas, which was excluded from the list of materials that needs to be delivered from Assad, and the reports increased confirming its usage in degrees that makes it a par with the chemical materials lately, Obama said: “Chlorine itself is not a chemical weapon”, but he redressed and said that in case it got proved, his country will exert pressures again on Assad’s regime’s allies to put an end to that, and he meant Russia by that.
If the USA President gave improvisational answers about Syria in the press conference, that placed him in contradictions with the final summit statement, and he’s fluent with that, John Kerry the Minister of Foreign Affairs used to make press conferences to explain his purposes, even in his “Arabiya” meeting yesterday he looked more clear, and courageous in saying his stand on Syria.
“Assad got rid of his Chemical weapons, and that’s why we didn’t shell him”, Obama answered “Arabiya’s” question, and this answer came frequent to his answer on one of the reporter’s questions in Camp David about the permanent hesitation on attacking the Syrian regime, but this answer has a supplement, Obama doesn’t have the ability on saying it, but everyone has the ability to discover it and all the Assad is doing after submitting the chemical weapons is a Syrian internal affair.
This relaxation that appeared on Obama during his interview, pushed him to verbosity more about what he was keeping to himself since years about Syria, he explained that he wasn’t enthusiastic on going through the operation of getting rid of Assad alone, but with an “International Alliance”, and he knows perfectly that this alliance will not be complete with the Russian and Chinese Vito in the Security Council, but even if Moscow and Beijing reached a stage of certainty that the Assad is a done dictator and there’s no wisdom in supporting him more, this doesn’t mean that getting rid of him is outside the framework of the “Political Solution”, because the stand in Syria, according to Obama, “is very complicated and there’s no near solution”, maybe, if the interviewer insisted on asking him when?, his answer would have been, after November 2016, that is when his presidential term and period ends.
Perhaps the best thing Syria earned from the USA, was from the American constitution, that doesn’t allow the president to run for presidency again for a third presidential term, so if Obama got a chance to look for a good valid seed in Bashar al-Assad, explosive barrels maker, maybe he’ll find it someday!
