It seems that the one super power and ex-super power are,again,racing for achieving the highest rank in world order.Both have chosen Syria to exhibit their power.America and Russia are in continous struggle to make them appear as savior of world by defeating Daesh.On contrary,both are fighting not with Daesh but with each others.These powers are more interested in defeating other in the race of power.Syria has become the stage where Russia and America are exercising their arm force.Blocs are formed just to smooth the way of this cold war.
After Paris attack,Syria witnessed French air strikes which America encouraged.After Russia’s plane shot down by Turkey,Iran is accusing Turkey of buying oil from ISIS as well.Surely,Iran is ally of Russia and siding with Vladimir Putin.In these circumstances,when every nation is fighting for either America or for Russia,things are becoming more complicated. Daesh is gaining more power and world’s super powers are appearing as feeble and weak.America is afraid of losing its unipolarity and Russia is excited to achieve the older status and allies are more interested in getting profit from this alignment.And this scenario is predicting that something is going to happen which will be engraved in world’s history as “not-so-good” event.
People of Syria are suffering most in this fight of cross-purposes.They are displaced,brutally murdered for the sake of “peace” and harassed.According to Syrian Network Human Rights,death rate in Syria on November-2015 was of 250,000 in which 30,000 were children.No doubt,world is experiencing the process of dehumanization in the name of humanization.This needs to stop.Humanity needs to be restored.America,Russia and all their allies must counter Daesh rather than each others.This war of being sole lord of world would spread anarchy.It is the high time for Russia and America to understand the fact that Daesh is more powerful because they are more united and because their aim is one albeit evil.So,to counter Daesh these power must be determined.America and Russia can do wonder by uniting themselves against terrorism.They must not encourage the cold war and cross-purposes in Syria.Only,the unity between these power can guarantee the removal of Daesh.
