So, if the article is accurate, then it appears the UK and France, along with our own plotters, boxed Washington into a corner with no way out but to intervene, then they themselves backed off, leaving us to take the brunt of it all.

VERY Machiavellian, I must say.

I don't think former French Foreign Minister is a Muslim Avenger.
He states very clearly The Arab Spring was a British intervention (criminal) in the affairs of Syrian Peaceful Existence.
The Jew control Britain as you very well know.
The chances of achieving justice on behalf not the martyred, murdered crippled and maimed is non existent here on Earth.
The ICC at the Hague is a Jewish kangaroo county like the many the vermin Jew have presented me too.

Eternal Damnation is the Fate of the Jew if humanity wants it they can share in it too.

Assad dictatorship shot the protestors every single western democracy assesses it that way.
Even Tsar Putin blames Assad for the uprising.
Dictatorships fall but then it's easier to blame someone else.

Well, I've never been against seeing Assad step down in an orderly fashion, to avoid the chaos and sectarian civil war and continued bloodletting that the West seems to want to conveniently ignore, if not provoke.

However, I'm not yet thoroughly convinced that certain Western states did not deliberately escalate, if not orchestrate, these early demonstrations to provoke a response, similar to the Iranian 1953 coup.

"Britain and the U.S. selected Fazlollah Zahedi to be the prime minister of a military junta that was to replace Mosaddegh's government. Subsequently, a royal decree dismissing Mosaddegh and appointing Zahedi was drawn up by the putsch plotters and signed by the Shah. The Central Intelligence Agency had successfully pressured the weak monarch to participate in the coup, while bribing street thugs, clergy, politicians and Iranian army officers to take part in a propaganda campaign against Mosaddegh and his government. At first, the coup appeared to be a failure when on the night of 1516 August, Imperial Guard Colonel Nematollah Nassiri was arrested while attempting to arrest Mosaddegh. The Shah fled the country the next day. On 19 August, a pro-Shah mob, paid by the CIA, marched on Mosaddegh's residence. According to the CIA's declassified documents and records, some of the most feared mobsters in Tehran were hired by the CIA to stage pro-Shah riots on 19 August. Other CIA-paid men were brought into Tehran in buses and trucks, and took over the streets of the city.[16] Between 300 and 800 people were killed because of the conflict. Mosaddegh was arrested, tried and convicted of treason by the Shah's military court. On 21 December 1953, he was sentenced to three years in jail, then placed under house arrest for the remainder of his life. Mosaddegh's supporters were rounded up, imprisoned, tortured or executed."

And lest we not forget, Mosaddegh was a democratically elected and progressive leader, only to be replaced by a UK and US backed figurehead, certainly no less dictatorial or brutal than Assad.

Mohammad Mosaddegh was the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 to 1953 when his government was overthrown in a coup d'etat orchestrated by the British MI6 and the American CIA.

An author, administrator, lawyer, prominent parliamentarian, he became the prime minister of Iran in 1951. His administration introduced a wide range of progressive social and political reforms such as social security, rent control, and land reforms. His government's most controversial policy, however, was the nationalization of the Iranian oil industry, which had been under British control since 1913 through the Anglo-Persian Oil Company (APOC / AIOC)(later British Petroleum or BP).

Mosaddegh was removed from power in a coup on 19 August 1953, organised and carried out by the CIA at the request of the British MI6 which chose Iranian General Fazlollah Zahedi to succeed Mosaddegh
