Responses from US and European Diplomats and Politicians to the Russian and Chinese Veto to the UNSC Draft Resolution on Syria have elicited responses which can no longer be described as normal diplomatic courtesy and etiquette.
Susan Rice, the highest US Diplomat to the United Nations and other used strong language such as “disgusting” and “disgusted”. In private meetings, Russian politicians and diplomats are said to have “warned” France, and other NATO countries from military intervention. This “warning” however, is late. In numerous articles the author has documented that NATO has been operating inside Syria at least since August 2011, and after a recent article based on Palestinian Intelligence, it became obvious that the aggression was planned since at least 2010.
Rather than discussing the breeching of diplomatic etiquette by Rice, let us have a look at the Draft Resolution in question and see what it implies.
The Resolution was sponsored by:
Bahrain, Colombia, Egypt, France, Germany, Jordan, Kuwait,
Libya, Morocco, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Togo,
Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom of Great
Britain and Northern Ireland and United States of America:
The United States, the United Kingdom, Qatar, and the new Libyan Government, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, France, have for months financed, armed, trained insurgents, supplied mercenary fighters to the so called Free Syrian Army, and in all possible ways violated international law. It is stunning that these nations would at all sponsor a resolution against a government of a country, against which they admittedly are waging war.
The sponsors of the resolution are concerned about the deterioration and security in Syria, asking to end all violence:
Expressing grave concern at the deterioration of the situation in Syria, and profound concern at the death of thousands of people and calling for an immediate end to all violence,
The Syrian government has lifted the emergency laws. Pervasive reforms have been implemented. New parties established and approved. Amnesty has been granted for those who were caught up in the emotions of the violence and committed crimes. The Syrian government has time and time again allowed the insurgents a cease fire, time to withdraw, and more, and is actively encouraging to end the violence. The violence however is continued, and continued with the participation of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the USA, UK, and other NATO Countries. See articles on “Syria” between August 2011 and February 2012 on nsnbc for ample documentation. See also the Arab leagues Observer Report.
Mindful that stability in Syria is key to peace and stability in the region,
It was the government of Syria that warned about the regional destabilization that will result from NATO´s destabilization of Syria.
Noting the announced commitments by the Syrian authorities to reform, and regretting the lack of progress in implementation,
Comprehensive reforms have been implemented in spite of the NATO led aggression. Further implementation of reforms is pending on the Syrian Governments ability to secure Syrian citizens safety and the integrity of the country and it´s institutions.
The resolution then continues with these implicit UN-TRUTHS.
