(Amrit Pal Singh ‘Amrit’)
To protect the citizens is the main duty of government of any country. If people are not safe, the government is useless.
The government in Syria failed to protect its citizens. Now they have no moral right to stay in power.
With the help of Russian armed forces, Bashar al-Assad, the President of Syria can hold the power for more months or years, but it is clear that he is just a failure. He failed to protect his people. Now, he has no right to stay in the government.
Russian armed forces fighting against the Islamic State is fine, but it is the right of Syrian citizens only to decide who would rule the country. Fighting to protect a President who failed to protect his own people is not a good sign for a democracy.
