While the rest of the world were trying to send a strong message to the Assad regime, Russia and China have once again vetoed a UN resolution to condemn the regime for the continued carnage against their own citizens.
Well, what can we expect of R&C? They have always liked to do things their own way. They don't like to been seen as being dictated to for the think that they are taikos in their own right.
Of course, they are taikos in their own right, but that is beside the point. They probably see their geo-political and economic interests as more important than that of the lives of the Syrian people themselves.
In effect Russia and China are saying that it is alright to attack your own citizens, however else they may try to justify their opposition to the latest UN resolution to condemn the Assad regime.
By saying that you are against a resolution to give a strong message to the Assad regime, you are in effect telling the Assad regime that it is alright to continue what they have been dong for a year and a half already i.e attack and kill their own citizens.
But this time Russia and China may live to regret their intransigence. However you looked at it, the Assad regime has long completely lost any legitimacy to stay on in power and will collapse. There are no two ways about it.
We have seen how one dictatorial and tyrannical regime after another collapse in the past couple of years and what makes you think this one won't?
