MOSCOW — Russia on Wednesday lashed out at the United States for backing the armed opposition to the Syrian regime, saying Washington's failure to condemn the July 18 blast that killed top security officials meant it was justifying terror.
He criticised the US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, saying she had argued that the attacks in Damascus meant the UN Security Council had to agree a sanctions resolution against Syria last week that Russia later vetoed.
"In other words, to say it in plain Russian, this means 'we (the United States) will continue to support such terrorist acts for as long as the UN Security Council has not done what we want'," Lavrov said

Sadly this has nothing to do with free elections in 2014 or any other time, it is not about democracy, it is about control and how certain western nations wish to control everything. If it was about democracy the US would of backed the rebels in Bahrain, however the Bahrain government is pro USA and so no, a rebellion is not allowed there, not even allowed to be reported.
The whole thing is a sham, just as Libya was, the Russians know it and standing firm, good on them I say. I just hope it does not escalate in to something much worse and I do feel sorry for teh Syrian people caught in teh middle of this proxy war
...it is not about democracy, it is about control and how certain western nations wish to control everything.
