Washington's Latest Security Council Proposal : Little Different from Its Last One

Washington's again trying to strong-arm through another anti-Assad Security Council resolution. While paying more attention to opposition violence, Russia said the document remains unbalanced.

A draft demands Syria grant "unhindered humanitarian access (and) condemns the continued widespread, systematic, and gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms by the Syrian authorities."

It also demands Assad "immediately put an end to such violations."

The hypocrisy's galling. Assad's more victim than villain. Washington, Britain, France, Turkey, Israel, and rogue Arab League allies bear main responsibility. Assad responded to violence their killer gangs initiated.

The draft merely called on "the armed elements of the Syrian opposition to refrain from all violence only after the government forces" cease attacks. Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov called it a "slightly renewed version of the previous document" Russia and China rejected.

Russia's Foreign Ministry added:

"We would like to warn our American and European partners from wishful thinking. Russia's stance on the Syrian settlement has never been subject to any short-term considerations and hasn't formed under the influence of electoral cycles, unlike that of some of our Western colleagues."

Syria's SANA news agency quoted Assad saying:

"The Syrian people, who have in the past managed to crush foreign plots"have again proven their ability to defend the nation and to build a new Syria through their determination to pursue reforms while confronting foreign-backed terrorism.''

RT also said Washington plans more aggressive intervention, including more aid for Syria's opposition. An unnamed US official said America's now helping opposition forces overthrow Assad. 

Admitting it signifies a significant change in US policy. Is direct military intervention next, putting a lie to Obama's latest denial of planned aggression.
