No surprise here...
BBC-An Arab and Western-backed resolution condemning the violent crackdown in Syria has been vetoed at the UN Security Council by Russia and China.
The two permanent members of the council rejected the draft resolution despite strong condemnation by US President Barack Obama of the violence.
"Condemning the crackdown" As if that was all this was about? Typical western media spin.
President Obama strongly condemns the violence? Yeah sure!
Russia and China were the only permanent Security Council members opposing the draft, reminding others that it was not their place to intervene in another country's domestic affairs.
Lavrov told an audience at the Munich Security Conference that there are too few demands being placed on Syria's armed opposition;
Had the West not armed the "opposition" the violence would have been non-existent as it was prior to this western created revolution that began with violent acts by armed opposition in March 2011.
Expect the Western media to play this story up in a big way. Keeping in mind that the US regularly uses it's VETO to protect Israel and the media stays silent.
