Why did this Syrian delegation quit the UN rights council? I am going to highlight the very big, glaring issue.
It has to do with agenda and perception.
GENEVA — The Syrian delegation attending a United Nations debate on the human rights situation there walked out of the meeting on Thursday.
"We declare our withdrawal from this sterile discussion," the Syrian representative, Faysal Khabbaz, said before leaving the room where government ministers and senior officials had gathered for the specially-convened meeting of the UN Human Rights Council.
Khabbaz said the debate "totally contravened procedures" and pointed out that the human rights in Syria was already on the agenda for discussion later in the council's session, which runs to March 23.
The representative accused some members of wanting to use the opening "high-level" segment and "convert it into slander and libel".
"We are convinced that the real aim is to cover up for the violence and murder perpetrated by armed groups against innocent civilians," said Khabbaz.
Since February 9, 18 hospitals, 48 health centres and 129 ambulances have been attacked by armed groups, he told the meeting before leaving.
The UN has demonstrated their one-sided war and death agenda for quite some time now.

Red Cross quit Homs as evacuation talks fail
It is NOT because of the Syrian government or Syrian soldiers either, it is because of the armed terrorists...
Red Cross and Red Crescent rescuers left the Syrian rebel city of Homs on Tuesday after talks to evacuate trapped Western journalists foundered, spokesman for the two aid groups said.
"Our team returned to Damascus at around 2:30 pm (1230 GMT) after negotiations yesterday and (returned?) today with a sheikh (religious official) who was serving as an intermediary," to evacuate the journalists, Abdel Rahman Attar told AFP.
"He asked for food and medical supplies for the residents of Baba Amr and our team accepted.
We asked in return to meet the journalists, but he refused," Attar added.
Who is He? Obviously 'he' is someone allied with the rebels!
Who are the journalist with? The rebels. Recall their videos, they are the guests of the "Free Syrian Army." Therefore it was the rebels/Free Syrian army that would not allow the evacuation of journalists. Why would they not release the journalist these "rebels" are such good guys.... I suspect they did not release the journalist/spooks because the journalist/spooks don't want to be freed. This has all been a psy-op. Perception Management!
Of course the way this article is written without clarity and intentionally so, to let the uninformed readers assume it is the Syrian government or soldiers. It is not.
The International Committee of the Red Cross in Damascus said its delegates had left Homs for the same reasons.
"The ICRC team has returned. The negotiations have been halted and the situation is very tense in Baba Amr," the rebel stronghold of Homs where journalists are believed trapped, said ICRC spokesman Saleh Dabbakeh
