Worrisome Security Council Presidential Statement on Syria


Washington wants regime change by any means, including war. Expect it.

After months of internal wrangling, Security Council members unanimously endorsed efforts to end Syrian violence. Or did they? More on that below.

Presidential statements are non-binding. However, with vague language, they risk potential slippery slope trouble. More on that below as well. 

Media reports called unanimity a setback for Assad. The statement's also characterized as "Western."

Hillary Clinton called it "a positive step. The council has now spoken with one voice." She also said Washington is working with Syria's opposition "to strengthen its preparation to participate in the Syrian-led transition process that the Council has endorsed." By any other name, she means regime change.

That alone suggests softened Russian support for Syria, or perhaps something else went on privately to cut an imperfect deal unlikely to end conflict. A greater one may follow, but only the fullness of time will tell.
