Syrian Massacre And Ourage Over The Russia/China U.N. Veto

This will be a short post because I just want to make a quick point. The United Nations failed to pass a resolution designed to stop what is being perceived as brutal killings of Syrian citizens by their government during a long running uprising. Some estimates say as many as 6,000 citizens have been murdered in the year since the protests began and the United Nations was attempting to intervene. Russia and China both vetoed the resolution, not surprising considering Syria is one of the largest weapons purchasers Russia has as a customer. Countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and France stated they were “disgusted” by the vetoes cast by Russia and China. All I have to say is this…..if you’re so disgusted, do something about it. Of course Russia isn’t going to offend a government that pays them for weapons and China is communist! They jail people for free speech in their country so why would they support legislation to support it elsewhere. The “disgust” expressed in the media by our country and the other supporters amounts to jack shit! I’m sure the Russians are drying their tears over our “disgust”. If the United States is going to talk such a big game with all its little brother countries behind it, then back up that talk. I’m not saying military action is necessary but give up this pathetic political correctness of being “disgusted” in the media and if the situation there is really so dire then do something about it, as opposed to asking permission from the friends of the people doing the killing!

I’ll Have more a little later.

  1. I agree. Instead of diplomacy if they feel that strong about it, go over there and do something. Then say “What?…What are you going to do about it?”

    • Im all for avoiding war but I get so sick of us and other countries looking at horrific situations and then saying “we’re disgusted” that other countries don’t want to butt in as much as we do. Its nothing but political positioning so they can say they care. Meanwhile, while they are so disgusted, hundreds more will die. Put up or shutup.If we really cared we’d do something about it.To me, every time we rant and rave at others not wanting to join us and then we do nothing we look like a bunch of pussies(sorry) for lack of a better term.grow some balls and don’t act like you care if you aren’t willing to do something about it.It’s just so political, you can bet if it was happening in Iran we’d be warming up the warships.
