The Absurdity and the Danger of any Acceptance or Legitimacy of the Assad Regime for any Purposes

Bashar al Assad's envoy to the United Nations(UN) has claimed it's time for Western nations to accept that his president is here to stay and that these nations should work with Assad to combat terrorism in the Middle East. 

Hence, Assad's envoy, has determined that Western nations should legitimized the children-gassing regime that now sits in Damascus, Syria, in exchange for cooperation in the fight against the Islamic States(IS).

As reported by Reuters, Syria's envoy Bashar Ja'afari, in the an interview with the News Service in New York, on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the Syrian war which has killed more than 200,000 people and displaced millions from their homes, claimed that Assad was ready to work with the United States(US) and others to combat terrorism in the Middle East.

Reuters cited Ja'afari:"We don't want any vacuum in the country that would create chaos such as happened in Libya and Iraq and...Afghanistan...President Assad can deliver..." Ja'afari added that Assad "...is the man who can deliver any solution."

Bashar al Assad has certainly delivered blood, death, mayhem, destabilization and the expansion of terror activities to the extent that youth from all corners of the Globe are drawn to Jihad because of his reign of terror in the Levant.

Let me be explicitly clear here: it is absurd and dangerous for any nation state to consider any legitimacy or acceptance of Bashar al Assad's regime in Syria for any purposes. Assad lost all credibility and legitimacy on August 21, 2013, when his forces gassed 421 children to death at Ghouta. Hundreds more victims died in that fateful event at Ghouta, but the fact that Assad used chemical weapons to gas hundreds of children to death, cannot ever be forgotten, accepted, legitimized not wished away. He must stand accountable for crimes against humanity. Thus the International community must continue to reject Bashar al Assad.

Moreover, claims by his UN envoy to the effect that some European countries including Sweden, Denmark, Romania, Bulgaria, Austria, Spain, the Czech Republic, Norway and Switzerland, have expressed a willingness to work with the Damascus regime because it represents the lesser of two evils compared with the Islamic State(IS), is preposterous. Assad's existence at the helm of Syria has been a major recruiting tool for the IS. Assad has bred terrorism in the Middle East. And that terrorism has been exported beyond the borders of the Middle East.

And should some European countries dare to go against the same rejection that US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, has lodged against Assad for widespread human rights violations, what will they do when larger and more sophisticated cells of extremists en-flamed by Assad's retention emerge in their pristine neighborhoods?

I opine that any acceptance or attempts of legitimacy of the Bashar al Assad regime for any purposes will compound and increase the dangers from extremism in Western societies.
