An interview with Marco Costa

 

GRA: Western media confidently say that the fall of the current Syrian regime is inevitable. In your opinion, how well founded this prediction is, and is there some political power that can bring order to this situation?

M.C.   I think that the media aspect of the story is essential, as the strictly war and geopolitical ones. Just as said the philosopher Baudrillard Jaen , in a postmodern society that is dominated by a "mediatic" reality, by communication's technologies increasingly pervasive and ambiguous, our situation, he argues, can be likened to a "ipereality." This is due to the total lack of distinction between objects and their representations, as it happens in the media world: the signs lose contact with the meaning of things, so that the end of the twentieth century was marked by her being a witness to the destruction of meanings unprecedented. For Baudrillard, the new electronic media presage a world of pure simulacra, models, code and digitality of artificial images that have become the "real", thus narrowing and eroding any distinction between the "real" world and that of ' mediated image. In essence, the narrative of a given political and institutional context - such as Syria today - always exceeds the actual reality of the facts. U.S. Imperialism has, in Syria today as in the past in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, the first major weapon in his service: the manipulation of information. Beyond the opinion of each individual on the Syrian political system, some aspects that are not reported by the Western media highlight: Bashar Al Assad is the legitimate President of the Syrian State, not because of some conspiracy or some strange formula, but simply because the majority of the Syrian people has freely elected in free elections, where, until proven otherwise, there is a representative parliamentary system with several parties that can contribute to power. I can not predict the evolution of the situation, I can only hope that Syria will be able to win his epic battle, and maintain its sovereignty and independence in the face of his assailants.

GRA:  How likely is a forceful U.S. intervention in the Syrian conflict and attempt to violently overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad (or the U.S. will keep a distance and will not dare to risk)? Under circumstances of such a possibility, what consequences it will bring to America itself?

M. C.   In fact, the Yankee attack has already begun, not even with a direct attack, but through indirect actions, international pressure, economic sanctions, infiltration of mercenaries and terrorists, huge loans to so-called rebels - ground proliferation of Islamic fundamentalism. There is a small detail, of which the United States must take into account: Syria is not alone to fight this epic battle. Yet another no recently expressed by Russia and China about a possible new actions of the Security Council of the United Nations on the Syrian crisis has sparked a real confrontation with the Western countries, also in favor of military solutions instead.

"The Russian position is well known, is balanced, and utterly devoid of emotions, which are ill-adapted to a situation so complicated. So, maybe it would not be correct to say that this position may change in the wake of pressure from anyone, "with these words Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for President Vladimir Putin has sought to stress the point of view of the Kremlin on the difficult situation in the country Arabic after repeated appeals to, more or less diplomatic, addressed by the EU and the U.S. in Moscow not to interfere with their plans for Damascus. Words which did not fail to replicate shortly after U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, always with the hypocrisy that characterizes it. "The Russians say they will not want to see a civil war, I tell them that their policy could trigger a civil war," he said from Copenhagen, where he is visiting, the former first lady.

An interview with Ali Reza Jalali

 

GRA : Western media confidently say that the fall of the current Syrian regime is inevitable. In your opinion, how well founded this prediction is, and is there some political power that can bring order to this situation?

Ali Reza Jalali : The current Syrian crisis represents the main geopolitical challenge in the Middle East, with important repercussions on stability of international relationships, both in the region and globally. We can say that this international challenge is the beginning of a new era and sign the transition from a so-called uni-polar world to a multi-polar global order.

As we have seen in recent months, relations between the countries members of the UNSC have cracked a lot, outlining a Western axis (USA, UK, France), who supports syrian opposition, as opposed to an Eurasian axis (Russia, China), who supprorts Bashar Assad and the stability of Damascus regime.

On the other hand, in the Middle East region, we can see two others axis: Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar (allies of the USA) against the "Axis of Resistance" (Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and some palestinians parties).

Qatar and Saudi Arabia seem to handle the media propaganda against the Syrian Government, while Turkey supports Syrian opposition (sympathizers of Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood [Syrian branch], liberals, terrorists from Arab countries, Afghanistan, Europe) with weapons and money.

In general, we can analyze the story from two points of view: in the media, the Syrian government would be coming to an end, even if it is more than a year since the Arab media and Western talk of an imminent fall of Assad. One of the leaders of the Syrian opposition (Burhan Ghalioun) spoke last summer (2011) about the end of the government in September, and now, a year later, Assad is still in power. This media propaganda is so strong globally, that world public opinion was influenced significantly. The ability to influence of the Western media has reached the peaks in Syrian crisis; in this, the support of the Arab media such as Al Jazeera and Al Arabya not be underestimated, since the absolute majority of the Arabs, be informed thanks to these channels. We can say openly that as regards the media war, the challenge is very difficult for Damascus government and Western dominance is clear. But from another point of view, the challenge is mainly on the ground.

An interview with Leonardo Olivetti

 

GRA : Western media confidently say that the fall of the current Syrian regime is inevitable. In your opinion, how well founded this prediction is, and is there some political power that can bring order to this situation?

L.O. : I do not think that Bashar al-Assad is near to the end. Bashar al-Assad's forces can count on a better equipment (tanks, fighter jets and artillery), more soldier than rebels' forces, and on the support of the majority of the syrian people. On the contrary, rebels can count almost exclusively on lightweight equipment (granades, gun, pistols, hand granades) and their tactics are based on guerriglia and terrorism. Actually, rebels control only some areas, near turkish and lebanese borders, military bases in the mountainous areas and a few parts of Aleppo (and I think Aleppo will be liberated soon by Assad's forces) and other small villages. In the long run, it's more probably (unless a foreign aggression) a victory for Bashar al-Assad's forces, who is the only Leader that can bring a new peace to Syria.

GRA : How likely is a forceful U.S. intervention in the Syrian conflict and attempt to violently overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad (or the U.S. will keep a distance and will not dare to risk)? Under circumstances of such a possibility, what consequences it will bring to America itself?

L.O.: During Syrian conflict, China and Russia used veto several times, and I think they won't change their approach on this topic. The only case of aggression is an action without the approval of the UN. Actually, Washington is trying to use the intrigue of "chemical arms", and this intrigue could be the 'casus belli' of the American aggression against Syria. This tactic is the last source for a foreign intervention, but, in my opinion, I do not think there will be a new "humanitarian" war in Syria. NATO have used much of their forces during the aggression in Libya, and not all NATO countries are ready to fight a war equally demanding (or probably more demanding). Moreover, the geopolitical and economical situation in Syria is completely different from past Libyan situation, and Russia, in the case of foreign aggression in Syria, will probably take a more clear position in favor of Bashar al-Assad. America will hurt by itself taking action in Syria, when it is not the only superpower capable of directing operations of this scale left.

An interview with Claudio Mutti

 
GRA: Western media confidently say that the fall of the current Syrian regime is inevitable. In your opinion, how well founded this prediction is, and is there some political power that can bring order to this situation?
C.M.: Western strategists and their Arab allies had announced that the Syrian regular army would be defeated before the end of Ramadan; but now it seems that they deluded themselves with false hopes, because the death squads of terrorists and mercenaries have registered thousands of dead, wounded and prisoners. Unlike the informations diffused by the embedded media, the armed gangs suffered a crushing defeat on the battlefields. Therefore I think that the Syrian Arab Republic will not collapse so easily as expected by U.S. and the others, notwithstanding its state of extreme weakness. At present, the Syrian government is the only political power which can face the disorder, if not bring order.
GRA: How likely is a forceful U.S. intervention in the Syrian conflict and attempt to violently overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad (or the U.S. will keep a distance and will not dare to risk)? Under circumstances of such a possibility, what consequences it will bring to America itself?
C. M.: The U. S. partecipation in the aggression against Syria is a matter of fact, because the mercenaries have been entrained by CIA in Turkey. Concerning a more direct intervention of U.S. against Syria, I think we must wait until November, when the presidential elections will be held. However, the U.S. strategy is clear: in its attempt to retard the decline of U.S. hegemony, Washington tries to divide Eurasia by all means; therefore U.S. want to subvert and balkanize Northern Africa, Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia. Then Syria will not be let in peace. 

 

"Tripolar world order"?

 

Adviser for geopolitical issues of Special Operations Command of U.S., head of the project "global governance" in Washington Foundation "New America", an influential political scientist Parag Khanna gives a new definition of the term "the second world." Noting the emergence of a kind of anti-ideological mentality, in the "second world" he includes countries that are midway between the "first world" and "third world". These countries have characteristics of both, their goal Parag Khanna defines as improvement of mutually beneficial relations with such strong political units as the European Union, the U.S. and China. In his opinion, these are "three empires", that are fighting for world domination. As for Russia, Khanna does not consider it a superpower, but certainly, considers it as one of the most powerful states. He puts Russia on a par with Japan and India. "Superpower - says Khanna - has a global reach, global influence and global ambitions. Superpower status means that it affects the decision-making at the same time around the world.” Khanna refers Russia to the "second world" countries. Following Brzezinski he sees our country as a prize, but not as the main player, and sharing the view of some Western political scientists, states that Russia will either submit or will be integrated. This opinion is shared by many experts on Sino-Russian relations. View of Russia from the West is not encouraging: for the next 50-60 years, political analysts predict China's dominance over Russia.

What is the role of the "second world" countries in the inevitably impending multipolar world? Parag Khanna believes that humanity is indeed moving towards multipolar model, and for the U.S. it means a fundamental loss of influence, because in this model United States are only one pole of power among other poles, which means that they will inevitably face the influence of such poles as Japan, India, Russia, China or Europe. In order to be factual political actors, none of these countries-poles need the approval of the United States. "The second world transformes into a self-contained anti-imperialist zone within which become stronger inter-regional relations. Russia has offered to build nuclear reactors in Iran and Libya, Kazakhstan and Malaysia hold conferences on the development of mutual trade relations, and between Iran, Indonesia and Venezuela forms the oil cartel. Chinese fly directly to Brazil, Brazilians - to Africa, Indians invest everywhere from Syria to Vietnam, and the investment fund of Abu Dhabi invests treasures of Emirate both in Wall Street, and Nanjing Road in Shanghai - symbol of the Chinese economic miracle."

 

An interview with Fabio Falchi

 

GRA: Western media confidently say that the fall of the current Syrian regime is inevitable. In your opinion, how well founded this prediction is, and is there some political power that can bring order to this situation?

F.F. : In every country there are ethnic, religious, ideological or social fractures, which can be exploited by foreign powers, in particular historical conditions. We know that in Syria there are armed gangs and terrorist groups, funded and supported mainly from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United States. They can count on the presence in Syria of a strong core of Muslim Brothers, historical enemies of the regime Assad.  Furthermore, they are stronger and more determined by the fall of Gaddafi. So once again the media circus and embedded journalists play a decisive role in what might be termed the atlanticist strategy of disinformation. A strategy that cannot arouse wonder if you keep in mind all the lies that the U.S.  said in the last years to justify the so-called "humanitarian wars".But the syrian army, being a conscript army, can rely on the support of its people and the Assad regime has shown so far to be able to defeat the rebels. In this situation, only Russia (with China and Iran) could play a positive role in this geopolitical area,  stopping "bullying policy" of the West.

GRA: How likely is a forceful U.S. intervention in the Syrian conflict and attempt to violently overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad (or the U.S. will keep a distance and will not dare to risk)? Under circumstances of such a possibility, what consequences it will bring to America itself?

F.F. : The U.S. would risk much to engage directly in this conflict. But the U.S. is increasingly dependent on some of their allies. And we should also take note that the United States, Britain and France have said they will try solutions outside the UN. Meaning that they are willing to do anything to defend an international system that is functional only to the interests of  "markets" even willing to start a war between Sunnis and Shiites, so as to strengthen the criminal regimes of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. And now we must also bear in mind that the israeli government  is  pointing the finger at Hezbollah and Iran.  And we know that Syria is the link between Hezbolllah and Iran.

GRA: How do you assess Russia's position in this issue? Is Russia able to compromise, yielding to the wiles of the West (for example, the proposal of Hillary Clinton to establish demilitarized zone), despite the fact, that Russia has already received a very difficult experience in the situation in Libya?

F.F. : Russia (along with China, Iran and Hezbollah) can inflict a decisive defeat to to the zionist and atlanticist arrogance, thanks to the determination and strength of Syria.

A.L.: The Baath Party is not giving up, the West, more and more alienated, turns his defeats in the reality, into victories in his virtual dreams. Today the Baath Party is the only force capable of imposing an order in Syria.
 

Alain de Benoist Critique of Liberal Ideology

From time immemorial, to be human meant to be affirmed both as a person and as a social being: the individual dimension and the collective dimension are not identical, but are inseparable. In the holist view, man develops himself on the basis of what he inherits and in reference to his social-historical context. It is to this model, which is the most common model in history, that individualism, which one must regard as a peculiarity of Western history, directly comes to be opposed.

In the modern sense of the term, individualism is the philosophy that regards the individual as the only reality and takes him as the principle of every evaluation. The individual is considered in himself, in abstraction from his social or cultural context. While holism expresses or justifies existing society in reference to values that are inherited, passed on, and shared—i.e., in the last analysis, in reference to society itself—individualism establishes its values independently of society as it finds it. This is why it does not recognize the autonomous status of communities, peoples, cultures, or nations. For it sees these entities as nothing but sums of individual atoms, which alone have value.
