The Syrian Rebellion

The Syrian Rebellion Characters ¾ 109 Orce clashed with an immovable object the regime versus people who conuered fear to challenge a despot of unspeakable cruel. Ajami tells the complicated tale of how Hafez al Assad father of the current President Bashar al Assad came to power through eliminating rivals and buying the allegiance of the military and the silence of other potentially influential groups Ruling for almost thirty years Hafez had one one goal in the year 2000 and that was for his son to succeed him which he did Portrayed as a modern Western educated physician who was worldly and sophisticated Bashar s reign has been even explicitly violent against any form of dissent using tactics like starving towns and cities of water and food The author weaves the tapestry of how complex the international stage is in Syria Although many large powers like Iran China and Russia have their hooks into Syria others like Hezbollah and Saudi Arabia also try to influence President Assad but he is like an orchestra conductor Ultimately the score that is played is his which means that he will likely remain in power no matter how much his people have to suffer Unlike most foreign policy books there is no magical policy prescription at the end Western intervention or arming the Syrian rebels would reading this story be a total disaster and would inevitably fuel the already strong anti American anti Western anti modernism which helps keeps regimes in place in the Middle East Good reading but not a happy story

Not uite what I was hoping for in that it s mostly focused on the current well as of a year ago conflict rather than the background Very much a first draft of history Still the early chapters help give an overview of who against who and the basic beats of 20th century Syrian history and geopoliticsKind of weirdly to my mind Ajami often dips into a sort of melodramatic speaking to posterity tone complete with poetically mixed up tenses history moved with velocity nowadays This dynastic inheritance in Syria was not destined to survive the second generation like he s narrating a goddamned play This wore out its welcome pretty fast Anyway further reading definitely reuired Who said Ibn Khaldun and didn t get any
