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.
