A Final Comment
On Friday, Syria's government wrote identical letters to US Security Council president Susan Rice and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
They'll fall on deaf ears and blind eyes, but nonetheless state:
"The terrorist acts committed by the armed terrorist groups in Syria have increased during the last few days, particularly after reaching an understanding on Kofi Annan's plan."
"In addition to the bombings whose preliminary evidence revealed the involvement of al-Qaeda members and the crimes committed by the other armed terrorist groups, instigation was escalated by some sides who claim care for Syria and making the UN Special Envoy's mission a success, while at the same time acting contrary to Annan's plan and the return of security and stability to Syria."
"The outcome of some meetings recently held indicated that the main goal of their participants was to shed more Syrian blood to the extent that some of them announced establishing funds to finance and arm these groups which we have already provided you with proofs in previous letters of their acts of killing, violence and terrorism."
Syria provided Arab League monitors proof of terror gang crimes. It called on member states to stop them. It's doing it again now. Nonviolence can't happen without both sides cooperating and international support.
Russia said Syrians alone must resolve their conflict free from outside interference. Washington, rogue NATO partners, and complicit regional despots have other ideas.
