Kudos for the Evolving Nonviolent Solution to the Syrian Chemical Weapons Crisis!

Kudos for the Evolving Nonviolent Solution to the Syrian Chemical Weapons Crisis!

Three Cheers for 1) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's initial suggestion that President Assad of Syria give up his government's chemical weapons stockpiles in order to avoid attack; 2) for the Russian Government's followup proposal for international cooperation in this regard; and 3) for both President Assad's and President Obama's respective, intial positive reactions!

Of course there will be challenges in executing the intent of this spendid, principled idea successfully; and of course it will take longer than a week! But think of the "unholy mess(es)" that can be avoided — and the positive, hisorical example(s) that will be set — by taking the first, even if unsure, cooperative steps in this direction!

If we, the People of the World, and our representatives at the United Nations (however flawed the structural linkages have been to date compared with truly democratic ideals), will only hold positive intentions — with "gritty good will" when needed — we will find not only an overall, nonviolent evolution occuring that can lower tensions and start some degree of healing for this deeply wounded region — we will also find issues and processes that transcend the borders of Syria and the entire scenario arising that — when properly addressed — will hasten the evolution of safety and peace for all.  

It seems this unlikely turn of events signals at long last that humanity is on the threshhold of a "New World Order" worthy of the name — in tune with both common sense and our "Highest Common Ideals."

Weapons are always dangerous. I made a research on types of old weapons used in past for my project of http://www.essays.best/ on history. Of course there will be challenges in executing the intent of this principled idea successfully and of course it will take longer than a week. But think of the unholy messes that can be avoided.
