Syria’s fate on the line at UNSC meeting

A major diplomatic battle over the fate of Syria has begun at the United Nations, with Russia and China the only Security Council member states to challenge the UN’s right to ‘meddle’ into sovereign states’ internal problems.

­In hopes of convincing Russia and other resolution opponents to change their minds ahead of a vote later this week, the speakers repeatedly maintained that there will be no similarity between the situations in Syria and Libya.

First, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that a comparison of UN actions in Syria to those of the UN and NATO in Libya would be a ‘false analogy,’ a statement French Foreign minister Alain Juppe rehashed in his speech.

One thought on “Syria’s fate on the line at UNSC meeting”

  1. How many Nations are going to have their Sovereignty violated by the excuses of the UN. I would not be surprised to find out that the “Terrorists” in Syria are being armed and supported by the US and its cronies as has been the case from the Balkan state collapse to Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia and soon to be Iran all for the sick agends of the US, France, Germany as well as Great Britain and their associated parasites. How many are going to fall to this tyranny?
    The sooner it is stopped the better!
