The opposition groups are becoming increasingly aware that their
best chance of meaningful change is not through a military fight
that they will almost certainly lose, and which will get them
killed in the process, along with their losing their support and
credibility, but through negotiations and participation in the
reform process and the dialogue that the government has offered.
This prospect -- of an end to the civil war and a negotiated peace
that brings about a reform process without destabilising the
country -- has led to desperation amongst the imperialist powers.
Despite their claims to the contrary, a stable Syrian-led process
is the last thing they want, as it leaves open the possibility of
Syria remaining a strong, independent, anti-imperialist state --
exactly the possibility they had sought to eliminate.
"but through negotiations and participation in the reform process
and the dialogue that the government has offered."
"a strong, independent, anti-imperialist state"
