If Syria is to Fall, Others Will Follow: The Pandora’s Box of Federalism

Ramzy Baroud

The apparent sudden Russian military withdrawal from Syria, starting on March 15 left political commentators puzzled.

Few of the analyses offered should be taken seriously. There is little solid information as of why the Russian leader decided to end his country’s military push in Syria. The intervention, which began last September, was enough to change the direction of the war on many fronts.

Russia pulled out because in my opinion they wanted to allow for a true attempt at peace in the region. If the US and the proxy states of the same (Turkey/Saudi Arabia) see this as an opportunity to prolong the war so that "their side" wins it will become obvious even to the deluded which country in fact behind the conflict.
