Russia proposed a resolution extending its mission 90 days with no sanctions. Churkin said Western countries stonewalled him. As a result, Moscow won't ask for a Security Council vote.
Vladimir Putin earlier ruled out Libya 2.0. Moscow also said adopting the West's resolution would "direct(ly) support" insurgent mercenaries.
Western and regional states already supply weapons, other equipment, funding, training, and direction. Expect stepped up efforts ahead.
Washington and key NATO partners reflect gross hypocrisy. They bear full responsibility for ongoing violence. Calling off their dogs can end it. Resolutions are sham cover for imperial lawlessness.
Expect daily bloodshed to continue. Assad will be wrongfully blamed. He's doing his job responsibility. Conflict resolution is nowhere in sight.
A Final Comment
Two previous articles exposed the ICRC's imperial agenda . It's a predatory NGO profiteer. It's closely linked to Western political and intelligence interests. It falsely called Syrian violence a civil war "subject to the rules of international humanitarian law."
There's nothing civil about Washington's war on Syria. It rages. The laws of war apply. ICRC's statement changed nothing.
Nonetheless, media scoundrels jumped on ICRC's declaration. The Wall Street Journal headlined an editorial "The Syrian Civil War."
Allegations of Syrian war crimes were raised. Syrians now suffer the consequences it said. The region's stability is at risk. Washington, other Western, and regional nations have options. The longer they wait, "the harder it becomes to shape the outcome in Syria."
Other media scoundrels hype the same theme. Doing so doesn't resolve conflict. It furthers it. Washington planned it that way.
It won't quit until Syria is ravaged and destroyed. "Liberation" following "humanitarian intervention" will be claimed. That's been the scheme since the get-go.
