The world continues to witness a new wave of colonialism as the West continues to infiltrate and dictate the politics in the Middle East by being catalysts of destabilising the region as evidenced by unfolding events in Syria.

France, Germany and Britain spearheaded an outcome at the UN General Assembly Third Committee on Tuesday where a resolution was adopted condemning Syria for human rights violations.

However, analysts say the results are not conducive to solving the crisis in Syria. China and Russia abstained from voting.

Political analyst, Dr Tafataona Mahoso said Syria is now being punished for its resistance of Israel and US domination of the Middle East, adding that it will only be a temporary success.


“What we are seeing now is the western penetration of institutions in Syria including the split of the army, so that part of the military forces are now joining the so-called resistance,” said Dr Mahoso.

“The Americans are determined to have a regime in Syria, which is supportive of them,” Mr. Chasi said.

For diplomatic analyst, Ambassador Chris Mutsvangwa, the Syrian issue is further exposing the hypocrisy of the West as the same revolts are being experienced in Egypt yet there is no talk of the security council.

Following the brutal assassination of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi by NATO-backed NTC forces, European nations were heaping pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government to halt what they called a bloody crackdown against civilians.
