ABSTRACT
NABILA Ramdani blames Saudi Arabia for manipulating the situation in Syria. Not all outside powers are backing the same groups, and it has been Qatar's insistence on defeating the Assad regime militarily that has most contributed to the destructive rise of extremist fighters. In recent days, the Saudis have sought to recalibrate their strategy, meeting for the first time with leaders of Syria's Muslim Brotherhood who dominate the Western-backed opposition. The UK, the US and others should support a diplomatic process to reconcile complicated regional agendas instead of using Syria as a bloody proxy playground.
