He didn't miss a beat. He and Annan are part of the problem, not the solution. Since January 1, 2007, he's been a reliable imperial tool. He supported NATO and killer gangs in Libya. He ignored grievous crimes of war and against humanity. He blames Assad for Western generated violence in Syria.

On April 6, he did again. A UN statement in his name said:

"The Secretary-General strongly condemns the latest escalation of violence. He deplores the assault by the Syrian authorities against innocent civilians, including women and children, despite the commitments by the Government of Syria to cease all use of heavy weapons in population centres." 

"The 10 April timeline to fulfill the Government's implementation of its commitments, as endorsed by the Security Council, is not an excuse for continued killing." 

"Such actions violate the consensus position of the Security Council, as expressed in its Presidential Statement of 5 April, for a peaceful political settlement to the Syrian crisis to be ushered by full implementation of all aspects of the Joint Special Envoy's six-point proposal."

"The Syrian authorities remain fully accountable for grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. These must stop at once."

"The Secretary-General demands that the Government of Syria immediately and unconditionally cease all military actions against the Syrian people." 

"He reiterates that it is the responsibility of the Syrian authorities to now deliver on what they have promised, and to implement, fully and unconditionally, all the commitments under the six-point plan of Joint Special Envoy Annan."

The imperial blame game holds victims responsible for aggressor crimes. Not a word in Ban's statement points fingers the right way. It's appalling and duplicitous. It shows support for insurgent violence and Washington's regime change plans.
