Any Acceptance of Assad is a Betrayal of Humanity and an Endorsement of Terror

Any acceptance of Bashar al Assad is a betrayal of humanity and an endorsement of terror.

Based upon compelling evidence the United Nations(UN) has provided backed by humanitarian organizations and media reports, Bashar al Assad's regime has gassed children and civilians to death. The incidents have been numerous and the suffering at times, has been a slow suffocation of life, as chlorine gas singed the lungs of young children.

Therefore, there could be no condition nor circumstance that could legitimize any relations with Bashar al Assad apart from the setting of his trial for crimes against humanity.

Recent reports of western acceptance that Assad could "stay for now" must be explained carefully and all suggestions of any relations with Assad must be rejected. 

It would be a travesty of international justice and humanity to forge any relations with Assad whose war upon the Syrian people has killed more than 250,000 people and displaced millions. Any relation with Assad would be an endorsement of terror since he and his regime's reign have fueled the unprecedented rise and spread of violent extremism and terror, from the Levant to western safe havens. 

Also to accept Assad because Vladimir Putin's wills such, is an equal travesty of humanity in light of Putin's human rights record and his personal agenda. Any perceived acceptance of Assad based upon Putin's desires and pledges to help in the fight on terror could deal devastating blows to groups such as the Islamic State(IS) in the short run. However, over a longer period of time, the violent flame of the IS and others could become more intense as it mutates in response to perceived collaboration between Assad, Putin and the West.

Sensibly, western nations must never compromise the tenets of liberty and of rights and of justice to satisfy short term objectives because terror appears to flourish under conditions where these fundamental rights are absent. So relations with Assad must be rejected, collaboration with Putin limited, and the unyielding principles of justice and of human rights sustained to the highest degree.
