Assad Pulls Ahead in Syrian War. Putin, Khamenei Are Co-Victors
DEBKAfile Video February 26, 2013, 3:42 AM (GMT+02:00)
Tags: Bashar Assad Syrian rebels Russia negotiations Video

March 5 has been set as the date for peace talks to open in Moscow between the Syrian opposition and the Assad regime, DEBKAfile reveals here exclusively. Opposition leader Moaz al-Khatib is waiting to meet the Assad regime’s representative, possibly Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem, in the Russian capital by the end of February to set up the talks. Bashar Assad has taken his resignation off the agenda and insists on reserving the option to run again for president in 2014. He is backed in this by President Vladimir Putin. And even the Syrian opposition appears to have tacitly bowed to this precondition – an admission that the rebel movement has reached its limit and Assad’s genocidal, no-holds-barred tactics have paid off. With all their acclaimed victories, rebel forces know that their desperate bid to conquer Damascus was repulsed by the Syrian army’s superior fire power and heavy armor. They were thrown back from the heart of Aleppo, Syria’s largest city. And they failed to gain control of Assad’s chemical arsenal. Ferocious fighting failed to bring the big Syrian Air Force bases into rebel hands. Now, most of the fighting opposition to the Assad regime is ready to negotiate terms for a ceasefire as the opening gambit for a political settlement. They face their enemy standing firm as the unvanquished ruler of Syria and commander-in-chief of its armed forces at the cost of Syria 80-100,000 Syrian lives and a ravaged country. In so doing, Assad has cemented the Tehran-Damascus-Hizballah alliance. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s’s sphere of influence now stretches from the Persian Gulf up to the Mediterranean – his reward for the billion dollars worth of aid per month he poured into buttressing Assad. His other ally, Hassan Nasrallah, whose Hizballah operatives fought shoulder to shoulder with Syrian troops, emerges as the strongman of Lebanon. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Assad’s staunch backer in diplomacy, arms and moral support, congratulates himself for picking the winning side in Syria’s civil war and, moreover, frustrating US and NATO designs to remove the Syrian ruler from power. Those are the winners. And the losers are the United States, the Gulf emirates and Saudi Arabia, Israel and Turkey. Barack Obama’s vision of a democratic, liberal “Arab Spring” has collapsed. Al Qaeda is a ubiquitous presence as transitional governments struggle to their feet – or not - in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. Israel finds a tighter than ever Syrian-Hizballah-Iranian noose closing around its borders as Tehran’s nuclear weapons program marches on. Turkey gambled heavily on bringing about Assad’s overthrow as the key to its bid for regional power– and missed.

  • from a neutral perspective... if that was a war NATO/US/ISRAEL were involved in...

    they lost in total.... pocket change in arms/funding whatever you believe.

    and in return:
    a whole heap of extremists from around the world got killed...
    a whole heap of soldiers from syria got killed...
    Syria's economy and infrastructure set back decades...

    is this actually one of the greatest victories of all time?

  • the rebels couldnt win shit....they had to fake victory videos in the hope of creating the perception of making advances! not to mention faking massacre vids, shabiha killings and lets not forget their crimes, videotaped and attempted to be passed off as saa crimes.

    this was a media war ultimately, and they lost, the sad thing about the whole crisis is they had to kill so many to achieve their aims.

  • This might be good news... But no offence, as soon as someone says "Iran's nuclear weapons program" you know it's bullshit.

    Iran has a civil nuclear program for energy, science and medicine.

  • You people do not understand. Assad has slaughtered thousands of his own just to hold power. The people revolt because his regime had been a 40 year ruthless dictatorship. These people aren't terrorists or extremists, they are Syrian citizens. Assad will kill millions of his own and destroy his cities just to hold power. He does not care about the people of Syria.

  • Isn't Debkafile an Israeli propaganda outlet? Why the hell would they paint such an optimistic picture for Assad? Some kind of psych-op going on maybe? Anyway I want Assad to win, I'd have a secular Syria over a fundamentalist Syria anyday. the Syrian army it seems had a lot more in the tank that Nato,Israel and some Arab states gave them credit for. The Syrian army it seems historically(at least recently), are the best Arab army in the Middle East by a long chalk.

      It seems like a stalemate if anything but even if what this is saying is true I don't know how I feel about the axis they're pushing, Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, Russia...not good.

      On the other side I don't support Israel or what they're doing either. I don't know

      Who has the upper hand in the negotiations though? If this is true and Assad will be allowed to stay in power then all of this uprising is for naught.

    • @Blklight I think that Assad would resign after negotiations. This would be one of the main demands of the opposition. And he could take his money and retire. But without negotiations killing will go on and Syria is seeing another failed state at the horizon.

    Just like 'Taliban peace talks' that are repeatedly denied by the leaders of the Taliban administration.

      Turkey will be a winner cause the looted stuff from Syria really pushed their economy and material welfare. And please don't try to tell me they don't transport stuff worth billions of dollar to Turkey. It's well-known and verifiable that the snackbarians even dismantled whole factories from northern Syria and transport them to Turkey they also sell 2nd-hand cars near the Syrian-Turkey border..etc.

      You can't feed your children and yourself with pride. You can't heat in the cold winter days with pride, you can't reanimate your loved ones with pride etc.
      And to see your family suffer will raise crime and despair so without any doubt the Syrian citizens are already loosers of this conflict.
