February 5th: Veto on Syria sparks Arab and Western fury

Green light for Assad to continue the massacre.

This was just a few hours after one of the worst day of killings.

Moscow continue selling weapons to Assad.

Any country would fight an armed uprising against a democratically elected Government. Sad when China and Russia are the ones standing up for democracy.

P.S. Is it all really about these guys trying to enforce Sharia rule?

No, Putin thinks he is Stalin and China is still a communist imperialist rogue nation. Only the remnants of those two empires could shamelessly support Assad, along with North Korea, Iran and probably Cuba and Venezuela. The face of real socialism.

putin certainly has many flaws but he's miles better than boris yeltsin who impovireshed and virtually sold out the nation to western interests.

russians are no idiots and they're aware of this all too well.

Good for the game. Unfortunately, USA won't have an opportunity to donate the gift of democracy to Syria along with missiles.

All those ships in Turkey that the left is just itching to use in a freedom run to the shores of an eastern Mediterranean country where people are being massacred. Why are they still in port and where are the left wing intellectuals that are willing to die to save the lives of a helpless and persecuted people?

Poor Syrians between a rock and a hard place. Outside threats just strengthen the regime, and the intervention would certainly lead to more deaths. Doing nothing about it is equally bad. The best thing would be if the oligarchy resigned peacefully, through combination of diplomacy, strong pressures and guarantees, done by the US, Arab countries, Russia and all others together, but there are opposed "strategic interests" that have nothing to do with ordinary people.

Re: Syria Uprising: China and Russia veto UN resolution to remove Assad

The Assads are Alawite Shi'ites, and as a religious minority in Syria they are eager to win the Christian vote.

Syria is one of the few Middle Eastern countries where persecution of Christians remains low...as opposed to the Western pets in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iraq, and Egypt.

The Copts of Egypt are facing increasing persecution by the Muslim Brotherhood stooges. Iraqi Christians have been all but wiped out.

If the Assads go, Syria is the next country to have its Christian minority wiped out by sharia.

It's a shame to all the evangelical "Christians" in the US who don't give a rat's behind about their co-religionists in the Middle East.

Btw: this whole story of the Assads brutally abusing the Syrian people is nothing but BS. We've seen this propaganda before and we'll see it again.
