Cameron has promised that members of the army and security forces would not be prosecuted for what he called “atrocities committed against the Syrian people”, if they took part in the coup.
The British premier failed as the host of the recent summit of Group of Eight(G8) leaders, which was held in Northern Ireland, to rally support for attempts to oust Bashar al - Assad through providing heavy weapons to foreign terrorists fighting the Syrian Army or get involved directly in the conflict militarily.
The London - based daily Al - Quds Al - Arabi reported that Cameron is attempting to “launch a new diplomatic effort geared at[President] Assad’s supporters, promising to ensure their survival when their leader is forcibly removed from power”.
The question here is how on earth is conspiring for a military coup in a third country defined as “a new diplomatic effort” as cited in the London - based newspaper. Of course, British authorities have a long hand in interfering in other countries’ internal issues from diplomatic interference to military intervention as evidenced in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Iran and so forth.
The leading editorial in Al - Quds Al - Arabi entitled “Britain and the option of a military coup in Syria” explained Cameron’s rationale for suggesting a military coup.
“Cameron wants to eliminate the strength of jihadi groups and strengthen the moderate Syrian opposition government, ” the editorial reads, “so that a dialogue can be held with the leaders of such a coup... But what happens if such efforts fail? The only resort will be for Britain and its allies to invade. ”
Syria crisis started as pro - reform protests but with interventions from the United States, UK and its regional allies it soon turned to a massive insurgency which took in numerous terrorist groups from all over Europe and Middle East to wage one of the bloodiest wars the region has ever experienced.
The war, which many fear is turning to a “war of hatred”, has already taken more than 100,000 lives.
