Until Russia stops its hypocritical stance the war will continue. Russia is supplying weapons to SAA and at the same time wanting to broker a deal of cease fire, cannot work. Russia vetos all statements in the UN that condemn Assad but get pouty when the US ignored one they wrote about the bombing, what do they expect when the Russians act like spoiled children. Of course Qatar has weapons and so do Saudi and these are becoming more available to the Rebels, these countries want Assad out as they are tired of Assad's killing of his people and driving them to flee to other countries that must absorb the expense of feeding them while Assad just keeps bombing civilian areas with no remorse.

Can you imagine! It boggles the mind. Washington kills a UN move to condemn a bomb attack by rebels forces targeting and killing dozens of civilians, in the name of terror and nothing else.

So, the US conducts a so-called war on terror, yet will not join the UN in condemning a clearly terrorist attack.

If that's not a double standard, what the hell is?

PS: George is as usual, playing the FOOL.

The U.S. canít afford to condemn its clients, the terrorists in Syria. The terrorists would get confused about the instructions, and may become hesitant to fight. Actually, Russia the most likely expected such a reaction from the Americans, but wanted to expose them; as it successful did; if itís to any consolation.

I've had first hand experience with such 'clients'. They make first class fighters but don't turn your back on them. Things tend to go boom in all the wrong places.

Those AlQaeda terrorists who murdered 3,000 innocent American civilians at the World Trade Center, are now the West's pals! Obviously their "regime change" agenda takes precedence over their ethics.

Russia is exactly right! For years the american people have listened to the professional liars in jewish controlled washington dc talk about terrorist when in reality the american government is the biggest terrorist in the world.Even worse is the fact that the americna government is the creator of groups like alqueda that the american government claims to be against.The reality is the terrorist groups like alqueda were created to be used as a proxie force to fight american government created wars.Such terrorist groups were also created to scared the mostly dumb american population into supporting wars in the middle east.The honest truth is the wars of iraq,Libya,Syria,mali,tunsia,e gypt etc are about one thing and that is stealing all the resources those countries have to offer or getting them for pennies.At the same time the american government tries to keep those countries from becoming advanced in a military fashion.Another factor is the american government and israel trying to keep the dollar as the world reserve currency.We can all look at Syria as an example and by that I mean as long as the people stay united the american government and israel plans will fail.The terrorist american government and israel have for the last 2 years tried everything to bring Syria down but has failed and a great deal of it has to do with the people staying united against the common enemy.

Stay united? can a land divided by civil war survive? Syria is coming to ruins and u say aslong as the people stay united? You need more than words to make the people united and how can the people of syria be united when the international community cant unite themselves to stop this terrorism. When the Jews suffered at the hands of the Romans did Syria or muslims care? when The Jews suffered at the hands of Germany did Syria stand up for them? You claim Israel as terrorist so why arnt Muslims and Christians being killed in Israel? You lack knowledge in Truth. No one can Stop God. When he says it will be a Heap of Ruins than it will be. Muslim nations have terrorist and they create terror cells in different countries Just like their Pagan god allah they have a split personality they claim they want peace but any country whos religion is to teach others to strap bombs to themselves and die for their beliefs is an Antichrist religion.

And did you know that all the countries u named secretly are enemies of Israel. Look Israel is the most safest middle east country Christians can walk freely aswell as muslims and other religions how can one say that a country who gives rights for other minority religions to be accepted in their land is a terrorist nation? They only want whats best and safest for them and their people. Syria on the other hand Support terrorist groups like hezbolla and other shiite terror groups.
And donr worry No matter what people say or do you cant stop what God says will happen like he said to Abraham "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you"
Look at the muslim nations everyone of them they live unhappy they start civil war among eachother while Israel lives safely.
Arrogance to the Truth gets you nowhere. Accepting Truth in Jesus Christ you will find life.

Whatever feelings we have on this forum the following account from Al Jazerra should remind us all to respect human suffering, because the graphic details in this report and so many others that have happened recently by both sides is true babaricsism.

This is the article.

Syrian government forces have launched fresh rockets at residential areas in eastern Aleppo, killing at least 37 people and destroying scores of homes.

The attacks on Friday, which were called "Scud-type" by activists due to the scale of destruction, has been the latest in a series of strikes that appear to be conducted with the ground-to-ground Russian-made ballistic missile.

"The number of victims is more than 30 people and more than 50 houses are destroyed in this area alone," the Reuters news agency has quoted a Syrian opposition source as saying.

"And behind these houses there are more than 25 destroyed houses. And in this house we hold out things for a girl lost her family," he said.

"Six from her family were killed and she is alone she is three years old and thank God she survived. And now the
young ones are taking things out (from the house) and taking them to her uncle. This girl's life has been destroyed by Bashar al-Assad, by Iran, by Russia. And we have only our god."

On Tuesday, activists said at least 33 people were killed when a large missile of the same type as the Scud missile hit the district of Jabal Badro.

Indeed. The US also conducted a so-called war on terror by invading Irak and refused to join the UN in allowing the inspection team complete the final stage of its mission, and in fact ..... preventing it.

Without these AlQaeda terrorist fighters, those Syrian rebels would have been defeated long ago.
