TEHRAN (Basirat)- Because the US has taken a passive position on Syria, it always attempts to prevent Russia from achieving its goals in the Arab country either through a diplomatic deadlock or supporting terrorist groups pointlessly.

When all the players involved in a crisis lack a strategic capability to end a lengthy war, they should just remain hopeful that the opposite side may accept defeat and grant them the glory of victory. Therefore, the reason that the parties are not ready to admit the defeat of their regional policies, after six years of war in Syria, is that financial and human costs of the ongoing crisis for the warring factions have not been that much significant.
 
The US, in cooperation with its European allies, is trying hard to achieve its regional goals through means of diplomatic pressure and instrumental use of the terrorist groups operating in the Arab country.
 
The regional states, such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are not directly involved in the Syrian crisis and, therefore, their military expenses and war casualties cannot bring them to their knees. However, the only country which is directly involved in the crisis is Russia, which is pursuing its own interests in the region via providing aerial support for Damascus and controlling its expenditures.

Although the prolongation of the crisis could prove costly for Russia in the long run, but because Russians, in their calculations and evaluations, know that the US and NATO offensive approach for pressing Moscow cannot be deterred, therefore they see their active presence in the Syrian crisis as an opportunity to move the conflict from eastern Europe and the Baltic region to the US play ground in the Middle East. This is similar to what happened in Ukraine last year or other crises in the Baltic region which were aimed at mounting geopolitical pressure on Russia. In fact, Moscow is trying to reduce the US and NATO’s pressure on its frontiers by taking the initiative and directing a forward defense against potential threats.

Consequently, from Russia’s perspective, Washington should either accept Moscow’s supremacy in Syria, which is unlikely, or this ongoing crisis should be used as leverage of pressure against the US. Actually, this is Russia’s initiative which has thrown the US into a sort of confusion.  

This is why US Secretary of State John Kerry in the Swiss city of Lausanne on Saturday evening announced equal participation of all parties involved in the crisis as the only solution to the war, and one day later on October 16 attended London talks on Syria with the participation of Washington’s regional and European allies during which he threatened Iran and Russia.

Because the US has taken a passive position on Syria, it always attempts to prevent Russia from achieving its goals in the Arab country either through a diplomatic deadlock or supporting terrorist groups pointlessly. And Russia sees the Syrian crisis as the right tool to take the initiative from the US in the process of the ongoing conflict. Therefore, this conclusion can be drawn that no deal is expected in the short run.
