COUNTING THE COST OF GREED: SYRIA
My take on this sensitive matter is that the greedy eyes of the power players would not sleep until the oil wealth of Syria becomes extinct. Counting the cost of greed in Syria is like a Hollywood horror movie. The poor masses of Syria would continue to lick there wounds until an almost impossible solution is carved out from the "Throne of Grace".
ISIS seems like the only lone wolf in this power tussle, all thanks to their radicalized Islamic veins. I see ISIS as the most stubborn grasshopper of the Syrian civil war. Unlike the other gladiators, their thirst for blood and oil has stirred them up to fight to the finish.
Assad can not divorce himself from the ugly gains of partnering with Vladimir Putin. I do not see this unholy alliance ending anytime from now. Greed seems to be their common ally.
The American backed liberation fighters are no saints. A whoosh of political power would give them the license to loot the treasury of the impoverish nation. Just like the case of Libya, an avalanche of problems would still be the victor. The corruption wind would corruptly turn their hearts into solid rocks of greed, this would be followed by gun combats and suicide bombings.
America and Russia would stop at nothing to wear the crown of the world's most powerful nation, they have both stained their hands with the bloods of the innocent and the awful cadaver of the guilty. Morally, America is committed to peace in Syria but she would prefer to have her own puppet on the "Presidential Throne" of Syria..
Perhaps, Syria shall smile again when a selfless president becomes the commander in chief of Syria. Only an unbiased umpire can heal this hope drained nation.
