What ‘Plan B’? Syrian Crisis Resolution Has No Viable Alternatives

Despite continued warnings about some kind of ‘Plan B’ for Syria should the current ceasefire deal fail, there may really be no alternative to the initiative already in place.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has accused Russian and Syrian air forces of violating the ceasefire agreement that came into effect on February 27, and threatened some kind of Plan B “if it became clear that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government and its allies were not serious about the truce,” according to Reuters.

While the minister didn’t elaborate on the nature of this ‘plan B’, his statements echo those of the US Secretary of State John Kerry who declared earlier that the White House is looking at additional options in Syria in the event the recently negotiated cessation of hostilities as well as political transition process do not succeed.

“There is a significant discussion taking place now about a Plan B in the event that we do not succeed at the [negotiating] table,” Kerry said.
