syrians caught in the middle of an unwinnable war

Sinem Cengiz

While EU foreign-policy chief Federica Mogherini was delivering a speech about the plight of the Syrian people at an EU event on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly last week, there were other concerns, calculations and plans in the minds of the leaders of countries involved in the conflict.
“There is no winner in this war. There might be military victories but there is no winner in this war — certainly not the people of Syria, who are paying the highest price,” Mogherini said at the event, which was attended by a large number foreign ministers, including those from Turkey, Russia, Lebanon and Jordan.
“Nobody will win, neither the war nor the peace, without a negotiated political solution. Too often we discuss of Syria but not with Syrians,” she added.
This is sadly the ugly truth. The discussions about Syria are concentrated more on the regime and the sphere of influence of other countries with vested interests rather than the Syrian people.
History provides a long list of examples, including the experiences in Libya and Iraq, that show no one can truly win a war when innocent people are affected. Even if one day the conflict ends, those who have been affected by years-long bloodshed will never be considered as winners, rather the losers in an unwinnable war.
Though the prospects of peace seem distant at the moment, there is still hope for a political solution in Syria, but not one based on models applied to other war-torn countries in the past. Since the beginning of Syrian war, several models have been proposed, such as a “Dayton-Type solution,” a version of the American-brokered peace accord that ended the Bosnian War in 1995, or a “Kosovo-Type” agreement.
