In a striking rebuke to Syria’s embattled government, Russian leader Vladimir Putin has warned that the Assad regime’s days may be numbered and a ceasefire with rebel forces must be reached.
With international support waning for President Bashar al-Assad, Mr. Putin declined to stand squarely by the dictatorship that he was once thought to prop up.
“We don’t have a special relationship,” the Russian leader said in an interview with the editors of six major international newspapers, including The Globe and Mail.

China and Russia's stand on Syria is the same. Let the Syrians sought out their future without foreign intervention. They know foreign intervention will bring about more instability and uncertainty as well as give opporturnity to extremist groups to seize control and destabilise the region. Most groups will claim that they were victimised and will only show their true colour when they take power. They are playing on your sympathy for military support so China and Russia are staying out. They have to be consistent here as when they deal with their own they expect to see no foreign intervention too. No one wants to be the world policeman except US and its slowly but surely weakening her financially. Maybe that is the aim of these countries...to weaken her. Wake up US something is not right with the big picture here. US should always remain strong and a deterrent to bad people with devilish intentions. You can't be a deterrent if you are already weak. So stay strong and keep out of other people's affair like China and Russia. The free world needs you to be strong.
