Half hearted against ISIS: Is West banking on Daesh against Assad tacitly?

sy

 

A matter of international deliberation (or rather, contention), the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has managed to capture the imagination of the entire globe, with the many speeches at the United Nations’ General Assembly (UNGA) session and a dedicated sideline summit bearing testimony to it. From the corridors of Kremlin to the alleys of the Senate, it can be said with staunch conviction that no country in the world today is unaware of the grotesque phenomenon that the ISIS is. Its graphic brutality, pillaging of historic towns, running of slave camps are some of the many blows that it has dealt to the moral fabric of humanity but which have hardly had any impact on its growing expanse. Rather than chipping at its might, these very acts and the feeling of power and virulence that these come to provide have managed to frisk away a lot of disaffected youth from across the globe onto its side. Added to it are the promises of a lavish lifestyle this ‘regime’ is coming to offer to those who offer their allegiance to it. An expanding ISIS is also sustained by the constant turmoil in the Middle Eastern region and the continuous international interferences in it. Sitting atop a vast wealth of resources and offering a strategically significant geographical space, the ever-so edgy region of the Middle East was made so by the international manipulations that were subjected on it from before the beginning of the World War I. Thus, part ISIS’ graphic brutality, part its effective propaganda, a portion of endemic volatility in the Middle East, and a great bit of international ineffectiveness has thrown a Molotov cocktail at an inflammable world order. Infact The Syrian civil war is fast degenerating into an unprecedented international crisis – in terms of deaths, refugees, and international diplomacy. First the Americans helped their Turkish, Saudi and GCC friends fund and arm the Syrian opposition. Then they allowed the growth of Jabhat al-Nusra and Da’ish. Then, when one American was beheaded by the groups, they – with NATO partners — started aerial bombardment of Da’ish in Raqqa. All this while they were aiding the so called ‘moderate opposition’ and allegedly fighting the caliphate. So, western powers, along with Turkey and GCC, first set up the Free Syrian Army, then aided – directly and indirectly – al-Nusra and ISIS to bring down the Assad regime. But then they bombed ISIS, which still seeks Assad’s removal, but remained friends with ‘moderate’ factions. Then Russia’s more pronounced entry clearly rattled some nerves. NATO was jolted. Russian airpower guaranteed Assad’s position – at least for the time being – and Da’ish’s fall, in the long run. That, among other things, explains NATO’s frustration, and what many are calling a gross miscalculation, which came out with Turkey shooting down a Russian jet recently. Even if the aim was not enhancing Russia-NATO tensions, there is, nevertheless, much more friction now than very recently. But the Paris attacks complicated the Syrian war perhaps more than most things. Suddenly France, Britain and Germany are also going to partake in bombing Raqqa in one form or another. Why these countries think militants are still holed up there, waiting for more countries to bomb them, is not explained. The only people who do really suffer are the few poor civilians still trapped there. Increasingly, it seems, Syria and the wider Middle East is becoming an open, entrenched space for proxy warfare. And with time, instead of coming closer to a solution, the Syrian quagmire is degenerating. Unfortunately, the best that the developed world can do, seemingly, is hop on to the anti-IS bandwagon and bomb away.
