It must be obvious to even the blind that Bashar al-Bastard has no intention, nor did he ever contemplate, abiding by the peace plan.
Now that the UN Peacekeeping Force has decided to end their mission because of the dangers al-Bastard is free to continue as before or indeed worsen the attacks on the phantoms in his head.
The bombings, destruction, slaughter of innocents has only worsened since the date of the ceasefire. al-Bastard is thumbing his nose at the world.
The veto by Russia on western intervention and then to be caught with its pants down sending a ship load of arms and the supply of attack helicopters to the regime needs to be looked at very very closely by the UN. Such duplicity, is treason. They need to be removed from the Security Council because obviously they cannot be trusted… security implies trust, after all.
“all military-technical cooperation with Syria is limited to defensive weapons”. “As regards helicopters, there were planned overhauls of equipment supplied many years ago,” the ministry said.
The ministry statement follows a denial by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. “We are not delivering to Syria, or anywhere else, items that could be used against peaceful demonstrators,” he said.
The ministry’s statement follows claims by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that Russia was supplying helicopters to Syria that were being used against civilians.
Clinton later clarified her statements, acknowledging that Russia was returning used equipment to Syria.
“Whether they are new or they are refurbished, the concern remains that they will be used for the exact same purpose that the current helicopters in Syria are being used, and that is to kill civilians,” Source: Can-India Read more
That statement itself proves that the Russians are updating contracts signed years ago, thus sidetracking the supply of ‘new’ weapons.Returning, or sending… it doesn’t matter, they are supplying arms to al-Bastard.
Look at that machine of destruction above!
What hope have the opposition forces against such technology? How can a mother protect her children from the hellfire sent from above?
“limited to defensive” WTF is Lavrov trying to kid? Defense of whom?
A responsible attitude by the Russians would have been to withhold the arms and helicopters until the situation was resolved…
The ball game has been changed by the Russians. They arm the regime, then it is only just that the world arm the opposition so they can defend themselves and the Syrian people…
“Oh but that’s creating a civil war!” You all cry in unison.
The civil war was declared when al-Bastard killed his first civilian! Any idea that the situation in Syria has been anything but a civil war is pure naïvete.
Meanwhile, thumbs are twiddled and Syrian women and children die!
