Armistice in Syria?

12-09-2016

A new US-Russian effort to impose an armistice in the Syrian Civil war, reached last saturday is not likely to achieve much. I urge readers to read the attached report of Amnesty International; to realize that the war in Syria has made 500.000 casualties in addition to the victims of torture; and to be aware that more than 5 million people are refugees. The impotence of the so called international community is shocking. Instead of bombing, training, sending weapons and giving other military support to one of the fighting parties, diplomats and politicians should have learnt from history that this is not the way to end a civil war. There are no legitimate parties in this civil war, qualified to receive support. The Assad regime has been and is an illegitimate terror regime.The various opposition militia's are no better. Only an international agreement to stop any kind of support to any of the fighting parties might make an armistice effective.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?

Neither Justice nor Order

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

This fifth and final volume offers a critical assessment of the state of the law of nations. In the twenty first century the world needs true global law anchored in the dignity of the human person rather than weak international law built on the interests of major sovereign states.
