With the rising of “Overthrow Syria”, some rational voices opposing external interference, and advocating to resolve the crisis by political means have appeared within the Arab League.

A blind pursuit of force to change the regime of other countries is like opening a Pandora's Box, which not only fosters the warlike tendencies in international relations, being contrary to the tide of peace and development of the 21st century, but also complicates the Syria issue and the regional situation.

Syria’s domestic oppositions situation is pretty complicated due to different interest demands and political pursue. Some analysts believe if Western powers arm the Syrian opposition, it will mean indirect support to al-Qaeda and Hamas, as both groups strongly support the Syrian opposition. With the escalation of violence, Syria may slip into civil war. Furthermore, the “spillover effect” of Syrian situation appears, involving the regional hegemony and sectarian violence among the Middle East countries, as well as the geo-strategic competition between the United States and Russia. Once the war breaks out, it will lead to disastrous consequences.

In recent years, Western powers' military interventions only left terrible messes in the end in most cases. Time proves that the choice of military force means choosing the wrong side of history.
