This is breaking news currently on the news feed linked so thought it would be appropriate to post here. So it begs the question, is this an
indication that the West is seeking the UN Security Council’s vote on military intervention into Syria? Parts of the article suggest that sanctions
have not been effective at getting political change in Syria and some European countries are now seeking a stronger and forceful resolution. China and
Russia are voicing their opposition to any interference in Syria.
The article is not clear whether those European countries are looking to intervene in a military capacity, but not sure what other alternatives there
are given diplomacy, sanctions and open condemnation of the crackdown of the Syrian regime have been applied with little effect except for promises
from Assad’s government that have not apparently been fulfilled.
