Russia and China on Tuesday vetoed a UN Security Council resolution, drawn up by European nations, threatening action if Syria's leader does not end a deadly crackdown on a pro-democracy movement.

It is the first Russian-China veto since the pair blocked UN sanctions against Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe in July 2008.


So the security council signal intentions to take action if Assad doesn't end the deadly crackdown? Sounds like a military threat to me.

In other news Assad threatens to attack Tel Aviv in case of NATO strike .

Looks like the US was not too happy about the veto outcome. Rice asserts this wasn't about military action though I wonder if the resolution was loose enough to involve it:

US 'outraged' after Russia, China veto Syria UN resolution


Rice says "the courageous people of Syria can now clearly see who on this Council supports their yearning for liberty"; UK's Hague says he's "disappointed," resolution was "entirely reasonable."

At the UN Security Council Tuesday, Russia and China vetoed a resolution tabled by the United Kingdom, Portugal, France and Germany that would have condemned Syria for its crackdown on protesters.

US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said the US is “outraged” that the Security Council “utterly failed to address an urgent moral challenge and a growing threat to regional peace and security.”

In damning, pointed language, Rice said that “the courageous people of Syria can now clearly see who on this Council supports their yearning for liberty and universal human rights-and who does not.”

The resolution received nine votes in favor and four abstentions from Brazil, India, Lebanon and South Africa. Russia and China cast the only votes against the resolution, which was drafted by France with the cooperation of Britain, Germany and Portugal.

“And during this season of change, the people of the Middle East can now see clearly which nations have chosen to ignore their calls for democracy and instead prop up desperate, cruel dictators,” Rice said.

“Those who oppose this resolution and give cover to a brutal regime will have to answer to the Syrian people-and, indeed, to people across the region who are pursuing the same universal aspirations.”

Rice bitterly noted that the Security Council “has not yet passed even a hortatory resolution to counter the Assad regime's brutal oppression.”

“Let there be no doubt: this is not about military intervention,” Rice said. “This is not about Libya. That is a cheap ruse by those who would rather sell arms to the Syrian regime than stand with the Syrian people.”

Rice said that the “crisis in Syria will stay before the Security Council, and we will not rest until this Council rises to meet its responsibilities.”

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was “disappointed” by Russia and China’s decision to veto the resolution.

“This will be seen in the region as a decision to side with a brutal regime rather than with the people of Syria, and will be a bitter blow to all those Syrians who have implored the international community to take a stand.”

Calling the resolution as drafted “entirely reasonable,” Hague said that it stressed the rejection of violence and that a political transition ought to be led by the Syrians.

The draft resolution, Hague made clear, was explicit that Security Council consideration of sanctions against Syria should not include military action.

“Those who blocked it,” Hague said of the resolution, “will have this action on their conscience.”


The world is being divided on developing issues in the Middle East. Future armaggeddon in its infancy.

I know they said they won't use military intervention. But sorry, they are wrong. We can't risk giving the Syrian people weapons incase of Al qaeda, the Haqqani network and the teletubbies (taliban) taking the weapons for themselves and using them against NATO. We can't just keep sanctioning them cause its already making things worse and you can CLEARLY see its not working.

No, if we use military intervention and take the criminal regime out, then problem solved. Yes people may argue that people will die, well wake up, people ARE dieing NOW. We HAVE to use military intervention or send in someone from the SAS/SBS or even the Navy Seals to take him out.

The invasion of Iraq was uneccessary, all NATO had to do was assassinate him (but we all know why we went in there), Afghan, is different to Syria, Afghan was "supposed" to be about the teletubbies (taliban) and Al Qaeda.

Syria, is just a government, who is scared. The Syrian regime KNOW the people of Syria want them out, so how do the regime try to solve it? By committing genocide. Instead of trying to improve the country they decide to kill their own civilians. A military intervention doesn't have to be another Iraq. Use air strikes, send in a special forces team (preferebly Black Ops) and take the bastard out. DONE.

I believe something needs to be done about Palestine aswell! I didn't mention Palestine cause this thread was about Syria.
