The talks in Geneva were designed to fail so that the US-led Western alliance and its Arabian client regimes can intensify the war in Syria by pumping more weapons into the hands of the mercenaries.
The Geneva-II Conference was not intended to usher peace in war-torn Syria. The participants talked past each other and only traded accusations. Nothing was achieved; none was expected.
Few informed observers expect anything of substance to emerge from the Geneva-II talks currently underway in Switzerland. The only hopeful sign is that at least some Syrian opposition groups are sitting across the table talking to Syrian government representatives even if they have been cajoled into coming there by their foreign masters. Will it lead to a solution? There is little hope at present unless there is a change of mind.
