/ Changing my mind about Syria

I've just seen on the news how Jihadists in Syria, aided by the rebels, captured some of Assad's fighters and beheaded them in a public beheading.

Now my problem wasn't with beheading people - FFS if an army has just dropped sarin gas on my community I'd cut the feckers heads off - don't get me wrong war is war.
My problem is with the anti government people who took their family down to watch.
On the news it showed a row of kids (maybe about the same age as my 7 year old daughter plus or minus a year or two) sat watching. I thought that this was the kind of thing that happened in Britain 600 years ago when they used to drown witches.

If these people want to live a medieval life style - leave them to it. Taking a 7 year old kid to watch a public beheading. F*cking savages.

I ain't sure there's going to be a satisfactory consensus to this thread. But for the sake of the discussion, at what age do you think children can start going to public beheadings?

Can't say I think 7 year olds should go to beheadings either, but then my life so far has conditioned my philosophy to regard any beheading as bad. Maybe if I'd spent the last two years worrying daily for my daughter's life, culminating in a sarin gas attack, I might be inclined to feel differently, and might feel my daughter should see what happens to the people I held responsible

Bad shit. But its war and these elements are basic components of that. Peoples behaviour shifts as the pressures of war shift.

I was invited to executions in afghanistan and georgia and tho i chose not to go, some went stating its their duty as a form of propaganda. Children were taken so they were indoctrinated into the tribal directive. Grim shit and the foundation for perpetuating conflict.

It wont represent every syrian tho. They need to be helped to stop this, not abandoned because of it.

in most cases i dont think they do. syria, despite being a pariah state, isnt afghanistan or somalia, its been a modernish state for a long time.
the dark ages blood lust has arisen out of the chaos of war. 2 years ago these people i dont doubt on the whole were quite normal, but have changed from what theyve been exposed to.

whats happened is the rise of extrajudicial law. the state has failed so jihadist-types get to act out their twisted islamist fantasies and others get caught up in it willingly or otherwise (in afghanistan i saw the way people were pressured to attend these things, like a new movie, it was all about being seen to be there). its exactly what the taliban did.

what to do? uphold a better alternative. its worked in other areas, where vicious locals were curtailed by more powerful regional commanders who tow a different line. its not easy, as those regional leaders are often warlords themselves, but take it far enough up the chain and you start to get powermongers willing to do deals with international bodies out of a want for legitimacy. we are now seeing this with al-shabab, the afghan taliban, hezbollah etc, and theres a long history of it working.

its not a pretty process, but when chaos has rewritten a regions playing field its one of the few choices. it demands a very focussed process.

what makes it hard is that, as nasty as syria has become, its still in its formative stages. it hasnt coalesced into a mature conflict yet, its still highly localized. this makes 'trickle up' politics impossible. sadly in some ways foreign intervation would push this along (depending how it went).
from the start theres been renegade groups plying for international recognition, but they control little reliably. there simply hasnt been the time for the playing out of relations to settle. by comparison, afghanistan, chechnya, somalia, tajikistan had all be at it for decades.

its one thing to settle conflicts between factions, but another to reboot a system thats been so wiped out. within that process are numerous well defined stage where this sort of mob blood lust flares. the goal is to resolve the playing field before we go thru too many of those, because each builds upon the other as far as inter-group slayings go.

I can't add much more to what ice solo has written above, other than to say I've actually been to Syria and can assure you that people there were certainly not "f**king savages" or that people want to "live a medieval lifestyle". The fact that millions of Syrians have left the country kind of indicates they don't want to. I found it (back in 2002) a fairly modern and reasonably tolerant country - superficially fairly similar to Turkey. They were doing everything they could to avoid the chaos of Iraq spilling into their country.

Since you can quite easily imagine beheading someone and really don't see how it's beyond the pale to imagine you'd eventually force other people do watch. Even the kids - if it's for the good of the cause.

Sorry, it was a little unclear.

If some crazy religous lunatics had taken over your patch (happened here in London a few hundred years ago) and wanted to impose orthodoxy on you at the pain of death, you might find yourself taking your kids to a public execution just to keep your family safe and under the radar. That wouldn't make them savages but people in a really horrible horrible position.

The secular, non-jihadist Syrians are probably very pleased to hear that...

People standing by their beliefs regardless of evidence is part of the problem here no?

I tend to bang on about this, but how much difference is there between beheading people as a means of execution and the use of every day weapons in war? The end results are the same, with beheading possibly one of the more humane ways to die.

Agreed, its not pre-watershed viewing and the treatment of prisoners should prohibit summary executions. But the "horror" of a beheading is probably heightened by the less than honest depictions in the media of what our own weapons do in the battlefield.

I believe they're trying to get something together.

Does anyone else think that the only way this can end without a lot of bloodshed is to partition the country? I just can't see the two sides cohabiting peacefully again for many many years.

ice.solo - on 14 Sep 2013
In reply to Eric9Points:

maybe, but i see it more partitioned like somalia rather than sudan, ie rather than separate, fairly stable states, one or two stable areas with other areas uncontolled and shifting between groups. assad my well regain control of damascus, or hole up in another city and claim a new seat of power, but elsewhere its hard to see him ever having full rule again - too much blood has been shed.

thing with partitioning is it rarely goes well. usually theres mass atrocities when populations shift (syria is already a classic example from the carving up of the post-ottoman era), and then for decades theres enclaves and unrecognized states that foster unrest. true, tho, it may be a better alternative than any other going.

an issue i see also with partition is that of islamist held areas forming fundamentalist mini-states. possibly like whats happening in pakistan, these areas become backward and attractive to those with agendas unhealthy to the larger region.
Eric9Points - on 14 Sep 2013
In reply to ice.solo:

Yes, I don't disagree with any of that but surely this where the UN can play a role by attempting to ensure that a transition is made as peacefully as possible. I think it would be essential that some sort of agreement is made between the two sides first. How did the partition of Cyprus unfold? From what I remember it was relatively bloodless.


Regarding Islamist mini states. I wonder if the Syrian people would really put up with foreign fundamentalists telling them how to live in their own country.

No good solutions though, only some may be less bad than others.

Enty - on 14 Sep 2013
In reply to shaun l:

Ok just to clear things up once and for all. No I don't condone beheadings. Especially public ones with kids watching - this is what shocked me on the news last night.

However, I can see a limited case for the death penalty in as humane way as possible. Vacuum chamber or lethal injection. Paerticulary for cases like April Jones and the Indian woman on the bus. I say that more so as the father of a little girl.

I don't really want to argue about the difference between the beheadings on the news last night and a muredering rapist getting a lethal injection. I can see a difference maybe some people can't.

I know what weapons do in the battle field. I can also see the difference between a soldier joining up, then knowingly going into battle and getting horrendously maimed or killed by some horrible weapon and a summary execution like a beheading. But then we're off on the Geneva convention thread again.

ice.solo - on 14 Sep 2013
In reply to Eric9Points:

UN maybe, but it grinds slowly and they need a mandate to even start, which can be vetoed by the security council and weve just sat thru all that. even something like no fly zones and sanctuary zones are hard to enforce over a scape as complex as what syria has become. unlike iraq and the balkans (sort of), things are not very defined for most of it. the kurds would do ok, but partitioning ideologies more so than ethnic groups is complex.

cyprus was one of the better partitions - but theres been many more that have been the darkest moments of humanity. cyprus was between 2 modern recognized states, with formal militaries over defined territories. syria lacks many of those elements.

islamist enclaves: i can see it. they need not be foreign at all, as we are already seeing jihadist groups taking hold. like what exists elsewhere, there may be locals with a minority of foreign instigators not unlike what we see in lebanon, iraq and afghanistan.
without a functioning state (of any sort) its very difficult to intervene to protect populations within syrias borders. with sovereignty gone, one set of rules goes and others initiate.
David Martin - on 14 Sep 2013
In reply to Enty:

While they are in the midst of war, its unsurprising though that more immediate forms of justice and retribution occur. I think we'd all like those in charge to be the sorts who like Mozart and listen to Gardeners Question Time, but those are hardly the types who are going to be calling the shots in the midst of a civil war.

I wouldn't hold a beheading against the Syrians, especially from the relative safety and civility of peacetime England.

I can't see a partition working at all. I would prefer to see it ending up something like Lebanon, which isn't great but there is a political role for former terrorists rather like we have in N Ireland. And it's a democracy (at least a bit). Tho I'm happy for someone with more knowledge of Lebanon to point out why this is a bad idea...

No, thats not the truth, that was the truth. Not now. They did exist, now don't. I'm not saying race crime doesn't exist but not mass lynchings, mock courts.

Come on be sensible. The US isn't perfect, but Powell reckons he'd not have made it so high in the UK as he thinks the UK is more racist institutionally. The problem with the US is the black/poor association, so its hard to disconnect causation and correlation. But look at areas like Camden, NJ, white or black those kids are screwed from birth. Thats not a race issue.

All I'm saying.. is as travelled.. experienced.. I don't think the US is that much more racist than the UK. In fact I think Eastern Germany/Poland and much of eastern europe is far more openly racist.

But you cannot really class the US as one country. I imagine china is similar. Its like classing Europe as one. The South West states are so different due to the people and environment, immigrant issues, than say Boston, or the New England area.

Portland, OR is incomparable to the flyover states. And I've not seen it all but spent weeks/months at a time in TX, Az, Me, Ma, Va, OK and also visited many of their surrounding states. And its all so different. Much like Europe.

I love how your only form of defense is attack. Personally I find that international travel, and more importantly, spending a considerable amount of time in individual countries gives you a better perspective on society, not just within the UK.

You haven't visited America though, have you? Or Syria. Or anywhere else in the middle east.
Or in fact any of the communist/socialist utopias you profess to love - like Czechoslovakia or Chile?

And just to state the obvious - I'm not naming any countries here that I haven't spent any time in.

Of course I aim to move to the US. I love the place. I've lived in England, Wales, Scotland, NZ, Germany and many many months in the US. For me I love the US.

I imagine you have the same racist views on Obama, Condoleeza Rice, Clarence Thomas (just to name a few successful African-American political figures)

Hmm, random insults. No actual answers.
Other than the fact that clearly you DO believe that any successful black political figure must be a "field negro".

As usual your inability to conduct any form of civilised discussion is tedious and childish.

I'm out.

In reply to Gudrun: Wow Gundrun! you really are the most aggressive, ignorant and out of touch twit that ever posted on this site. Reading your pathetic childlike arguments gets more painful every time. For the record, I couldn't be more anti of most US foreign policy, but your hate filled bile does nothing but persuade me maybe i need to reconsider. Ben
