Obama’s Counted Days Writer: Nedal Naisseh Levant TV Regardless of the drastic and painful scene, taking place in many countries around us, especially in Syria, there is still a room for some fun and sarcasm that may steal a shy smile from an ordinary observer

 In this context, one might trace, also, bigger ironies which turn the hole tragedy into a complete comedy where the antagonists are losing at the end of the “Syrian play”, and the winner will, logically, be the protagonist. One of the main goals of the American-backed global world against Syria was to remove Syrian president Bashar Al Assad, and topple down his regime bringing, instead, a pro-western loyal and oriented puppet leader

 The familiar tone, at the beginning of the war, that the “chorus” used to chant and repeat was the “counted days” symphony, and that president Assad “_must_” leave his office, and should step down. Many optimistic war mongers specified few “counted” days or weeks for him to do that. Many others, may be more genius and pessimistic, gave few weeks for it. It’s needless to say that more than eighty countries, known, so sarcastically, as “Syria’s Friends”, pledged to achieve that goal. They spared no effort, through the last 44 months for it, hired, paid dear and imported fighters and mercenaries from all over the world, equipping them with most deadly and newest weaponry

Unfortunately, and with the continuation, and the escalation of war against Syria, it seemed that something contrary was taking place. President Assad opponents, having the full support and protection of US, were “leaving”, falling down and departing the stage one after another. It may take us one, or two more articles to cover the “festival” of, and count those who were losing and leaving their posts and places. The list may include presidents like Morsi and Sarkosi, down to Secretary of States like Mrs. Clinton, and Bin Jasem, reaching to Emirs and princes Like Hamad of Qatar and Bandar who was sacked, also, as Saudia’s Intelligence Chief after his drastic failure in toppling down Assad, and never to mention those who are lower in degree and responsibilities, statesmen or smaller players. Up to a certain time of the so-called Arab Spring, president Obama, through his local agents, succeeded in removing four major presidents and leaders in the region, among them Bin Ali of Tunisia, Mubarak of Egypt, Saleh of Yaman, and Qaddafi of Libya

 The common divisor among them was that they all have received the same “decree” to leave, and they did it. It will seem irrelevant, in this article, to wonder why Mr. Obama didn’t issue the same decree to his closest allies, especially those of the medieval tribal Sheikhdoms, who are considered to be the most atrocious, primitive and dictatorial regimes in the world

Regardless of the close up of his second term, it, symbolically, looks like Obama’s turn now to “leave” after losing Congress mid-elections, and what seems to be a great loss in the Middle East to bring his Muslim Brotherhood Group to office in Arab Spring countries. Obama who is considered, on a large scale, to be the main plotter and schemer of the whole project and the practical leader of it, has been turned, actually, into a “lame duck”, as many put it. Taking into consideration Chuck Hagel’s latest declarations regarding the need to cooperate with president Assad, all other predictions exclude president Assad’s departure or defeat, on the contrary while he is winning systematically on many respects. Obama, for the time being, may be waiting for someone to issue him the same decree he used to give to his colleagues. But, still, it remains a great enigma that all those who called for Assad’s departure are departing one after another. What a strange coincidence? Levant TV
