1149 words - 5 pages

Advantages for Support and Intervention of the UN Resolution of 1653:

If South Africa was to support intervention into Assadistan and the UN Resolution 1653. It would base this decision on the fact that as a state that upholds Human Rights as an inherent and innate part of its citizens. It cannot allow for human rights abuse to occur on the African continent. This stands in line with the values of organizations that South Africa is a part of like the African Union and United Nations which are opposed to the infringement of Human Rights. Therefore as a member state of the United Nations, it is South Africa’s duty to ensure international peace and security within the international community. ...view middle of the document...

As well as impose and police a cease fire. React: it reacts to the needs of the people by providing humanitarian and medical relief to the citizens in need. Rebuild: the removal of any 3rd force activity that aims to escalate the conflict for their own benefit, as all foreign military and financial support will be withdraw from the current Government (Baylis and Owens. 2014, 486-491).

Moreover, taking into consideration an economic perspective, Assadistan is a country that is rich in natural resources and oil. A strong relationship with Assadistan once it has implemented democratic reform would allow South Africa the opportunity to be able to import oil and other natural resources at a cheaper price. This is in line with The Department of International Relations and Cooperation’s strategic plan 2013-2018 to strengthen political, economic and social relations in Africa by using economic diplomacy to increase bilateral trade and investment. Thereby increasing intra-African trade and serving South Africa’s national interest and foreign policy objectives (DIRCO, 2012).

In addition to the economy is the threat of terrorism. Terrorism is a global phenomenon that affects the entire international community South Africa’s support of the resolution ensures that Assadistan in its position as a failed state is no longer a breeding ground for terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and organized crime. South Africa’s support of the resolution aids in combating the war against terrorism. As terrorism will continue to flourish in Assadistan, if its citizens specifically the Hadi tribe members feel that they can achieve political power and redress grievances through collaboration with extremist groups like Al Qaeda. The support of the resolution would ensure that the citizens gain political power back and have other avenues to redress their grievances. Thus putting an end to a habitable environment for terrorism to grow and spread (Baylis and Ownes.2014, 368-370).

Besides being legal responsible to intervene in Assadistan which first needs clearance from the UN Security Council. South Africa’s support of the resolution ensures that she meets her moral obligation as a regional leader to protect civilians from ‘fear of want’ and ‘fear of need’( Baylis and Ownes.2014, 451/452) Therefore bearing in mind that Assadistan can longer be recognized as sovereign within the international community because she can no longer protect her own citizens. As a consequence South Africa and the rest of the international community must uphold the idea of common humanity by protecting and upholding the rights of others.
