The title of a Reuters article released on March 12, 2012 is “West and Russia SPLIT over Syria; MASSACRE (continues) in Homs” (Web-site/URL: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/12/us-syria-idUSBRE8280G820120312).
“U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters after meeting privately with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov it was time for Moscow and Beijing to join calls for an end to the Syrian government’s repression of unrest. Clinton said it was up to Assad, whose army has led a year-long crackdown which the United Nations says has killed well over 7,500 civilians, to take the initial step”. “it was up to ASSAD?” Well, it’s clear that Assad WON’T DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY. “First and foremost, the Assad government HAS TO end the violence“. “has to” implies the use of the “force and pain technique” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“Lavrov said NATO had “GROSSLY violated” its U.N. mandate to protect civilians in Libya last year (2011) after rebels rose up to overthrow and kill Muammar Gaddafi”. “THERE IS NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that the Syrian authorities bear a HUGE responsibility for the current situation“. These 2 statements contradict each other. The first statement is BLAMING NATO while the second is SUPPORTING NATO and THE SYRIAN REBELS. “But, Lavrov added (that) there was no point in talking about who started the violence”, of course, because that would become the latest chapter of “who said what in the past; who did what” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). “He said (that) the Security Council should press for an “IMMEDIATE end to the violence” by all sides”. Again, these are , so “immediate” often DOES NOT mean “immediate”
According to “a medic in Homs”, “I saw two FEMALES who were RAPED, one was around 12 or 13 years old. She was COVERED IN BLOOD and HER UNDERCLOTHES WERE OFF“. This is eerily similar “One of the women was STRANGLED; she had BRUISES ON HER NECK. Some of the bodies I saw, especially the children, had their THROATS SLIT“. These are clearly GRUESOME/HORRIFYING descriptions/images.
According to a SANA (Syrian STATE TV), “The TERRORIST ARMED GROUPS have kidnapped scores of civilians in Homs, killed and mutilated their corpses and FILMED THEM TO BE SHOWN BY MEDIA OUTLETS“. Again, according to Assad and STATE TV, EVERYTHING is carried out by “terrorist armed gangs”.
Finally, according to George Sabra of the SNC, speaking from Istanbul, “We DEMAND by Arab and Western countries to protect civilians“. “MILITARY intervention”. WHOA. There’s a new concept, as far as SYRIA is concerned. “We DEMAND establishment of secured humanitarian corridors and zones to protect the civilians. We DEMAND (the) implementation of a no-fly zone over entire (i.e. ALL OF) Syria to prevent Assad from continuing massacres“. “demand” is a fundamental characteristic of “Difficult People” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI), but BASHAR AL-ASSAD IS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT because his motto basically is: Obey me or GET SHOT.
So, “West and Russia SPLIT Over Syria” ISN’T surprising because like CHINA, Russia insists on doing things their own way which means NOT following international norms/laws/procedures, just like CHINA which, of course, brings to mind the CUI XILING or “Future Wife” case again (Web-site/URL: http://www.se.cuhk.edu.hk/~wgao/publication/master-thesis.pdf). Gao Wei isn’t as bad as Cui Xiling, however, because Cui Xiling only has 3 publications in 10 years of postgraduate study (Web-site/URL: http://www.hksyu.edu/ba/CuiXiling.html).
