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.
GRA : How, in your opinion, will deploy the situation after the overthrow of Bashar Assad? According to the information, disseminated through the media, there are already dozens of catastrophic scenarios.
F.F. : Syria is important for the security of Russia, which seems to be aware that the destabilization of the whole Mediterranean region and the muslim world not only threatens to thwart the efforts of Moscow to continue to be present in the Mediterranean (thanks to the naval base at Tartus), but also paves the way for new color revolutions or uprisings in Iran and even in the smallest countries of the former Soviet Union. So, fall of the Assad regime would make easier destabilize not only Iran but also Russia.
GRA: One possible scenario is the territorial division of Syria into three parts. Chagry Erhan, Director of the Center of Strategic Research of the European peoples, believes that the Baath regime, that is being removed from power, will try to create a new state on the basis of belonging to a madhhab through Latakia-Tartus, what can lead to a decision of destruction or assimilation of the Sunni population. In addition, such a step (creation of a new state) can undertake also Kurds. And here raises a difficult question – how to prevent the partition of the country? Erhan believes that once the government will intervene in the process by violent means, this will lead to more bloodshed. How likely do you think, this scenario is?
F.F. : I do not know if this scenario is actually possible. But I know that the geopolitics of chaos is the only viable strategy for the U.S. to be able to continue to be the policeman of the western oligarchy. There is no doubt that the essence of geopolitics of chaos consists in the dissolution in the global market of the national identities that represent or (better) may be a barrier to globalization “made in Usa”. From this point of view, the conflict in Syria shows that the main objective of the U.S. is not so much to dismember Syria but rather prevent that Russia (also with China) can create a true multipolar balance. And the “balkanization” of the Middle East is a necessary condition for this western geopolitics. But this time it seems that Moscow is aware of what the real issues at stake.
