Abrief  history  of  the  Aleppo  battle

The main battling groups in Aleppo are Syrian Army and rebel militias consisting of Jabhat al Nusra, Ansar Al Sharia,Ahrar al-Sham. Rebels have deep connections with Al qaeda and are ideologically charged to convert Syria in to a theocratic state. There are also allegations that they tried to use human shields to protect them form Syrian Army attacks.

As Syrian forces are supported by Russia,Iran  Rebels are supported by Saudi arabia, Qatar, Jordan. Rebels demand for a Assad free Syria and if it happens, Syria may plunge in to civil war as like in Afghanistan. So, protecting the state structure is pivotal to prevent this. This is what the stand of Russia is. A diplomatic solution is a way forward.

Achance for peace in Syria

Syria is a regional problem that needs a regional solution. Moscow conference is aimed at this. Iran, Russia and Turkey are the participants to the same. in this Russia and Irana re supporting Assad regime and Turkey supporting Rebels. Turkey has changed its policy and stated engaging as instability in the region is leading to security challenges on home front. Recent killing of Russian Ambassador, serious bomb attacks and strengthening of Kurdish forces are an indication of this.

In this scenario, it can also be said the effective participation of all regional actors is very critical for success of peace. As rebels receive support from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan making them participate in the conference can help. It need to be noted that USA enjoys considerable hold on these countries.

 

Ayear of  living  dangerously

Situation across the border andLoc is worsening between India and Pakistan after surgical strikes. Though Pakistan has denied any surgical strikes across LoC, a low cost response has initiated. It consists of

  1. Violation of ceasefire
  2. Planned low intensity attacks on Indian forces in J&K
  3. Supporting of Kashmiri Uprising.

In these Indian side is facing a greater damage compared to Pakistani side.

Political parties shall resist from using Military gain for a political advantage. It can be stated that political triumphalism after surgical strikes has lead to worsening of situation. India appears to be in a commitment trap and dilemma as it is unable to counter every attack by noon state actors from Pakistan.

 

Ending the Manipur blockade

Manipur is facing a blockade since November 1, after CM Ibobi singh has announced for new districts. It is causing severe hardships for the people and alienation among groups.

Though administrative reasons are cited for creation of new states, lack of consultation and apprehensions that Naga majority areas are being divided has lead to blockade. It shows the importance of consultation and deliberation for decision making.

On the other side, centre did not intervene effectively inspite of the request of state tot end blockade. It is not in the spirit of Indian federalism.
