You can always rely on the UN to live down to expectations;

Western nations have deplored the vetoing by Russia and China of a UN resolution condemning the crackdown in Syria on anti-government protests. The US said the veto was “shameful”, while Britain said it “lets the Syrian people down”. France also condemned the block at the UN Security Council. Russia and China said the proposed draft was “unbalanced”. The document was rejected just hours after activists accused Syrian troops of killing at least 55 people in Homs.

As I have long argued, the United Nations is an organised hypocrisy, and in a crisis, it will always do the same thing – nothing. There are those on the Left who shill for it, claiming it it has  the world’s highest moral authority. This shows their own detachment from reality. The League of Nations failed and the UN has failed. Tear it down and start again. Mind you, some people to appreciate the UN impotence…

Russia and China braved Arab and Western fury tonight by vetoing a UN resolution calling on President Bashar al-Assad to step down.

  1. Assad’s daddy once wiped out a town of 10,000 inhabitants because it was the centre of a revolt, yet little was heard of this and nothing was done or even said by that highest of all moral authority, the United States. Now that Syria is in the cross-hairs of this same moral authority which inflicted death and destruction on Libya just a few months ago, 55 reported deaths is cited as justification for whatever ‘humanitarian intervention’ massacre this great moral authority has in mind for Syria noting that yesterday the touted figure was over 270 dead. Furthermore, given that there is an armed revolt (arms from where?) taking place in Syria and that Syrian troops have been subject to massacres by these ‘freedom-fighters’, how many of the reported 55 dead were unarmed? Here is the reality of the new ‘corporate-friendly’ regime in Libya, which is the template for Syria:


    -(Tripoli) – A Libyan diplomat who served as ambassador to France died less than 24 hours after he was detained by a Tripoli-based militia from the town of Zintan, Human Rights Watch said today. Dr. Omar Brebesh, who was detained on January 19, 2012, appears to have died from torture.

    A preliminary autopsy report viewed by Human Rights Watch said the cause of death included multiple bodily injuries and fractured ribs. Photos of Brebesh’s body, seen by Human Rights Watch, show welts, cuts, and the apparent removal of toenails, indicating that he was tortured prior to death. Human Rights Watch also read a report by the judicial police in Tripoli, which said that Brebesh had died from torture and that an unnamed suspect had confessed to killing him. –

  2. Assad kinda makes Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-il look like a collection of Saint Thérèses of Lisieux.

    But the alternative could be worse.

  3. Shame on Russia and China but such utter hypocrisy on the part of another member of the UN Security Council who always use their veto to perpetuate the misery of the Palestinian people.

    People in glass houses…

  4. There are good reasons why Russia and China refused to support the UN resolution:


    – Unexpectedly, however, neither Washington nor the Arab League, which commissioned the Observer Mission to Syria in the first place, have accepted the interim report presented by the AL Mission.

    Why? Because the Mission –integrated by independent observers from Arab League countries– provides a balanced and objective assessment of what is happening on the ground inside Syria. It does not serve as a mouthpiece for Washington and the governments of Arab states.

    It points to the existence of an “Armed Entity”; it acknowledges that “armed opposition groups” including the Syria Free Army are involved in criminal and terrorist acts.

    “In some zones, this armed entity reacted by attacking Syrian security forces and citizens, causing the Government to respond with further violence. In the end, innocent citizens pay the price for those actions with life and limb.

    “In Homs, Idlib and Hama, the Observer Mission witnessed acts of violence being committed against Government forces and civilians that resulted in several deaths and injuries. Examples of those acts include the bombing of a civilian bus, killing eight persons and injuring others, including women and children, and the bombing of a train carrying diesel oil. In another incident in Homs, a police bus was blown up, killing two police officers. A fuel pipeline and some small bridges were also bombed. ”

    “Such incidents include the bombing of buildings, trains carrying fuel, vehicles carrying diesel oil and explosions targeting the police, members of the media and fuel pipelines. Some of those attacks have been carried out by the Free Syrian Army and some by other armed opposition groups.”

    While the Mission does not identify the foreign powers behind “the armed entity”, its report dispels the mainstream media lies and fabrications, used by Washington to push for “regime change” in Syria.
