he Foreign Minister was speaking on the ABC’s ‘4 Corners’ program’ on – ‘the pre-condition for movement towards peace’ in Syria.  Read ABC Report below:

Assassination, defection could topple Assad: Carr

| Author: ABC 4 Corners | Date: 8th Oct 2012 | Link to On-Line Story | Watch ‘4 Corners’ iView here |

Foreign Minister Bob Carr says a major military defection and an assassination seem to be pre-conditions of movement towards peace in Syria.

Senator Carr says while there is nothing to suggest it is about to happen, the battle between president Bashar al-Assad’s regime and opposition fighters has become more even.

He has told the ABC’s Four Corners program it seems to be the pre-condition for movement towards peace.

“I think we’d know the conflict has evened up if there is a major defection from the Assad government, especially a defection that takes part of its armed forces with it,” he said.

“This sounds brutal and callous, perhaps an assassination combined with a major defection, taking a large part of its military, is what is required to get one; a ceasefire and two; political negotiations.

“I know of no intelligence data – none has flowed across my desk – that suggests this is about to happen but it would seem to be a pre-condition of movement towards what Kofi Annan said was essential and that is a ceasefire and two negotiations between all sides towards what was laid out at the Geneva conference in June.”

Senator Carr says Mr Assad’s military regime has not accommodated the desire for change among Syrians, which has resulted in the bloodshed.

“We’ve got nothing to do but trust the spirit of the Arab Spring,” he said.

“We do know there is a body of opinion in the Arab world running strongly that says ‘we do not want extremism, we want democracy denied to us for so long’.”

Senator Carr says it is unclear to what extent Islamic extremists like Al Qaeda are involved in the conflict.

Tens of thousands of people have fled Syria since an uprising against Mr Assad’s regime began more than 18 months ago.

Opposition activists estimate 30,000 people have been killed in the conflict which has developed into a full-scale civil war.

While opposition forces lack the strength to defeat the government forces outright, the military struggles to maintain control of many areas in the city – resulting in significant loss of life.

The Battle for Syria will screen on Four Corners tonight at 8.30pm on ABC1.

What was Bob Carr thinking when planting a ‘seed’ like ‘assassination’ as a means to end a conflict?

This is as big a gaff as when Peter Costello the Australian Treasurer at the time, leaked confidential discussions he had with Alan Greenspan about US Monetary policy that sent markets around the globe into a tailspin.

It shows once again that Bob Carr is out of his depth when dealing o the International stage.  Hell – you might think or want that to happen to help end the conflict, but to actually say it will set off another round of hate protests against Australia.

He needs to take a good look at himself and Gillard will stand by him because she has to – he was her choice to replace RUDD and again she has been seen to be a very poor Leader in the choices she makes.

WHat should one think – that to settle the issues we have in this Nation one should contemplate an assassination?   Totally irresponsible and he should be made to apologise to all Australians for putting them at risk and hand in his resignation as Foreign Minister.

    You’d have thought that Bob Carr had been around long enough to be smart enough not to make idle speculation to the media… I actually thought the guy was reasonably intelligent – certainly shows a lack of simple old common sense… Might be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks – he may have let something slip…

    Well said Des … yet as I scan all my Australian news feeds this morning – can’t find a yelp about the comment … I must be drinking a different cocktail …
