MESOP TODAYS OPINION ON SYRIA –  Syria – Why Assad Has Become Irrelevant – By Amir Taheri

26 Aug 2017 – Asharq al Awsat – Hearing diplomats and policymakers talking about Syria, one is bound to quickly come across a cliché: There is no military solution! But what if the opposite were true in the sense that the five-year plus “problem” couldn’t be solved except through military action? —— It is interesting that all those who talk of “no military solution” are doing nothing but taking military action in Syria which, in practice, means dropping bombs from the air and killing vast numbers of Syrians. Just days after US Secretary of State John Kerry came out with the “no military solution” cliché, the Pentagon unveiled a new plan for intensified bombings in Syria. Kerry’s Iranian “buddy” Muhammad Javad Zarif, playing the role of Foreign Minister, repeated the mantra while touring Cuba just a day before his masters in Tehran granted “base facilities” to Russia from which to intensify bombing Syria and kill even more Syrians.

MESOP TODAYS CRITICAL QUESTIONS :  By Rebecca Hersman  – Director of the Project on Nuclear Issues and senior adviser with the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C.

Unpacking Syria’s Chemical Weapons Problem

August 25, 2016 – A series of three chemical weapons attacks in Syria within a two-week span in August 2016 occurred amidst increased scrutiny and criticism from the international community, which has sought to identify and hold accountable those state and/or nonstate actors perpetrating, organizing, or sponsoring these chemical weapons attacks. A number of reports released in recent weeks by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have revealed growing concerns about non-declared chemical weapons (CW) activities in Syria, raising the prospect that Syria might be hiding illicit CW capabilities in violation of its accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). Further, the international team from the OPCW-United Nations (UN) Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) yesterday released the findings of its year-long investigation into nine confirmed cases of CW use in Syria during 2014 and 2015.

Putin’s Geopolitical Chess Game with Washington in Syria and Eurasia
July 21st 2012/Oil Geopolitics
Since reassuming his post as Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin has lost no minute in addressing the most urgent geopolitical threats to Russia internationally. Not surprisingly, at the center of his agenda is the explosive situation in the Middle East, above all Syria. Here Putin is engaging every imaginable means of preventing a further deterioration of the situation into what easily could become another “world war by miscalculation.” His activities in recent weeks involve active personal diplomacy with Syria’s government as well as the so-called opposition “Syrian National Council.” It involves intense diplomacy with Erdogan’s Turkey regime. It involves closed door diplomacy with Obama. It involves direct diplomacy with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu.

MESOP “LEARNING OF ISRAEL”: REJECTION OF THE NON-IDENTICAL ENEMY – TRENCHES CREATE – FENCES BUILD – MONITORING – CHECKING – PENALTIES

Israel & the Alliance of the Imperiled – by Ethan Seletsky – The Jewish Advocate – August 26, 2016

Israel, despite constant existential threats and its history as a terror target, has kept its people relatively safe, earning a 2015 Global Terrorism Index impact rank of 24th. This rank is not only better than most Middle Eastern countries, but also is better than the likes of China, Russia and India. ——  Israel, through decades of thought and investment in counterterrorism, maintains security by reducing its areas of vulnerability and proactively targeting terrorist infrastructure and operatives. Israel has not suffered a major attack on its airports since the 1972 shooting at Ben Gurion Airport. Israel uses checkpoints and physical barriers in order to limit vulnerability and the activities of terrorists. Targeted strikes aggressively pursue those that seek to spill innocent blood. http://www.meforum.org/6224/israel-alliance-of-the-imperiled

MESOP : LONDON SCHOOL OF  ECONOMICS – Rojava at 4: Examining the Experiment in Western Kurdistan  – August/LSE Middle East Centre
In July 2012, Kurds in northern Syria began taking control of territory. This led to the creation of the largely self-governing areas known collectively as Rojava (Western Kurdistan), and a new experiment in local government which has deep significance for Syrian, Kurdish, Middle Eastern and international geopolitics.
Four years on from this unprecedented development, the LSE Middle East Centre convened a workshop bringing together specialists on Kurdish, Syrian and Turkish politics with colleagues from the UK FCO and DFID to examine the progress and nature of the Rojava project.

27 Aug 2016 – Turkish authorities have yet to assign blame for the recent wedding massacre at Gaziantep, but they themselves must shoulder a considerable amount of responsibility.

Officials knew months ago that the Islamic State (IS) was considering an attack in Gaziantep, yet they did nothing. Regardless of which group is ultimately found to have committed the Aug. 20 suicide bombing — which killed 54, including 29 children, and wounded more than 90 others — Turkey should have been prepared.  Read all  http://www.mesop.de/?p=77512

MESOP: FAMILIE MÜNKLER & SEINE FRAU

Gespräch mit Marina und Herfried Münkler  über Flüchtlinge : „Ein Traum für Deutschland“ !

Hat die Flüchtlingsdebatte die Wirkung eines nationalen Jungbrunnens? Das Buch „Die neuen Deutschen“ erzählt von einem Land, das seine besten Zeiten noch vor sich hat. – 26.08.2016, von Christian Geyer, Andreas Kilb und Regina Mönch FAZ

….. wir also lesen & sehen: Herfried Münkler, skeptisch dreinschauend neben seiner Frau Marina, die  satte 80 % des Gesprächs allein bestreitet, das die „Neuen Deutschen“ vorstellt, diesen „Goldene Zeiten“ fest versprechend – im Zeichen „eines nationalen Jungbrunnens“.  Natürlich in Buchform  – und wohl auch ziemlich allein von ihr verfasst, die aus einem gigantischen Reservoir von 2 letztjährigen VHS-Kursen für Migranten schöpft, was sie in eine regelrechte Agitatorin verwandelt hat, ohne aber praktisch-konkrete Hinweise zur Problembewältigung zu geben, außer einem: die von ihr dringend geforderte und als Lösung prognostizierte Geschlechtsquote bei der Flüchtlingsaufnahme: immer einmal „w“ / dann wieder einen „m“. Wofür  Marina M. sich selber eine arge List attestiert: „Die schicken dann vermehrt die Mädels alle nach hier“. Anstatt arbeitssuchende wie fähige Männer zu delegieren. Schlau, Marina ! – fast so schlau wie die Familienverbände Mesopotamiens, die keineswegs ihre jungen frischen unverehelichten Mädels alle in Marsch setzen werden, sondern Mütter mit Kindern oder Frauen, die schwanger sind. Die also nicht arbeiten können, sondern nun das Nachrücken der Männer fordern: womit dann, liebe Marina, alles wieder beim Alten ist.

Das Buch aber wird sich verkaufen: es ist der Kanzlerin gewidmet, deren erstes publizistisches Organ die Münkler gerne werden möchte, auch an Herfried ganz vorbei . Vernunft ist, wenn schon nichts, dann wenigstens Quote. (MESOP)      http://www.faz.net/aktuell/feuilleton/debatten/marina-und-herfried-muenkler-die-neuen-deutschen-14405574.html
