I was eagerly waiting for this comment, @O_Rich_ #Syria #Iran #Russia #israel
.@O_Rich_ made the right reading of @ejmalrai 's article. Some might see conspiracies by Russia, but this is the right reading.
#Russia's most important achievement in #Syria is that it safeguarded the structure of the state and its institutions. And it is through this structure, and through these institutions that the state can reclaim the rest of #Syria. @O_Rich_ @ejmalrai
This is not about #Assad. This is not about the regime. It is about the structure of the state, the skeleton needed to keep Syrian society together, services, army, international presence, legality, etc... #Russia achieved this and prevented another Libya. @O_Rich_ @ejmalrai
It was unavoidable that #Syria was going to have these competing zones of influence after a brutal war that nearly everybody, regionally and internationally, participated in. However, the structure of the state and Syrian society are both intact. This is a remarkable achievement.
Wholeheartedly agree, you can even say multipolarity was created in #Syria when #Russia told the #US & its allies they can't break the Syria house.
