It is time for the brotherly Arab country of Lebanon to help the artificially-created Syrian entity from further descending into chaos and civil war. The Syrian entity was artificially created by French colonialism at the end of World War I, which placed the Alawite minority clan into positions of power to the detriment of the vast Sunni majority in the country.
The Alawite sect benefited from its collaboration with the colonial power and forced France to clobber together an artificial country made up of vastly diverse sects, cities, and religions. The Mediterranean seacoast cities of Tartous and Lattaqiyeh (Alawite) have nothing to do with the desert cities of Damascus, Homs and Hama (Sunni Arabs), or with any of the other cities in the far north (Aleppo and Qamishli) which are more Armenian, Kurdish and Turkish than Arab, or with the southern Druze cities where the uprising began.
Lebanon should repay its sister Syria by sending peacekeeping troops into Syria to separate the clashing sides there and put an end to the massacres and brutality that both sides have shown. As a model of religious coexistence, Lebanon can provide the stability that the Syrians need to learn how to live together in harmony. The Lebanese can teach the backward Syrians how Alwaites, Druze, Sunnis, Kurds, Armenians, neanderthals and cro-magnons can coexist together without the savage rule of the Assad clan or the violence that opponents of the Assads are demonstrating in the streets across Syria.
The Arab League should set up an ARAB DETERRENCE FORCE (قوة الردع العربية) made up of 90% Lebanese troops and token troops from other Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait. The Lebanese troops can separate the belligerents and impose the order needed in the streets of the artificial Syrian entity until such time as negotiations can be held between the parties and decisions are made to create a separate Alwaite country on the Syrian coast, a Syrian Arab Sunni entity from the cities of Homs, Hama and Damascus, annex the Kurdish north to the very successful Autonomous Kurdish Region in northern Iraq, and annex the southern Druze region to the Golan Heights.
The Lebanese having experienced those tensions during their civil war of 1975-1990 have a lot to teach the Syrian brutes about the benefits of peaceful coexistence. The Lebanese will not undertake the shelling of the Syrian cities, like the Syrian troops did in Lebanon in the 1970s and 1980s. Instead they will hold workshops and peace rallies to teach the Syrian primitives how to function in the modern world without killings, massacres, and the brutality that the Syrians have been capable of in both Lebanon and Syria. The Lebanese troops will not kidnap ordinary Syrian civilians and put them in jail for the rest of their lives, like the Syrians did during their "peacekeeping" in Lebanon back in the 70s and 80s.
We propose that the Arab League, which has now suspended Syria's membership in it, reconvene and immediately issue a call for Lebanese Army troops to enter - without waiting for a formal agreement - into Syrian territories and begin separating the protagonists. If the troops arrive in Damascus, they should seek to arrest the top levels of the Syrian artificial entity's government - Bashar Assad, Buthaina Shaaban, and all the hoodlums and gangsters running the dictatorship there - and hand them over to international justice where they have to be tried for Crimes Against Humanity. Lebanese troops will not resort to bombing these people or killing them, (which is what Syria did when it entered to put peace in lebanon). They will simply arrest them very humanely and hand them over. This way, the barbaric and backward Syrian people will learn how to handle these situations without resorting to violence and bloodletting. This is how a country like Lebanon can begin civilizing the primitive country of Syria.
