Vladimir Putin. Nu, nu-i reclama la sticle.

Vladimir Putin. Nu, nu-i reclama la sticle.

Ieri The New York Times a publicat un articol semnat de Vladimir Putin, în care acesta abordează problema siriana.

Mai la vale voi reda câteva extrase, netraduse din scrierea noului țar al Rusiei:

RECENT events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.

No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.

Syria is not witnessing a battle for democracy, but an armed conflict between government and opposition in a multireligious country. There are few champions of democracy in Syria. But there are more than enough Qaeda fighters and extremists of all stripes battling the government.

From the outset, Russia has advocated peaceful dialogue enabling Syrians to develop a compromise plan for their own future. We are not protecting the Syrian government, but international law. We need to use the United Nations Security Council and believe that preserving law and order in today’s complex and turbulent world is one of the few ways to keep international relations from sliding into chaos. The law is still the law, and we must follow it whether we like it or not. Under current international law, force is permitted only in self-defense or by the decision of the Security Council. Anything else is unacceptable under the United Nations Charter and would constitute an act of aggression. No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Reports that militants are preparing another attack — this time against Israel — cannot be ignored.

No matter how targeted the strikes or how sophisticated the weapons, civilian casualties are inevitable, including the elderly and children, whom the strikes are meant to protect.

Întregul articol, semnat Vladimir Putin, poate fi citit direct la sursă.

Citind printre rânduri, se pot trage câteva concluzii…

  • Dacă Vestul nu ține cont de părerea Rusiei și Chinei (țări cu drept de veto în Consiliul de Securitate al ONU) și îl arde la coaste pe Assad, se dovedește ca ONU e pus degeaba ineficace, putând avea soarte Ligii Națiunilor (dizolvată după WW II, pe același motiv).
  • Militanții de toate orientările, mai eles facțiunile extremiste, sunt momentan la ”cursuri de specializare” în Siria și ar putea folosi experiența acumulată impotriva ”sponsorilor” lor actuali sau a Rusiei (factiunile cecene).
  • Democratizarea Orientului Mijlociu nu decurge conform așteptărilor Vestului: Libia e departe de a fi liniștită, iar Irakul e macinat de război civil.
  • În mod sigur s-a dat cu gaz. Nu se știe însă de catre cine. Pare-se că ar mai fi pus la dospit încă un atentat ”false flag”, de data asta orientat împotriva Israelului.
