UN Sends Syria "Strongly Worded" Letter in Response to Mass Murder

Honestly, it's like they live in a dream world.
The Security Council today condemned the widespread violation of human rights in Syria and the use of force against civilians by the country’s security forces, calling for an end to the violence and urging all sides to act with restraint and refrain from reprisals, including attacks against State institutions…

“Those responsible for the violence should be held accountable,” the Council said in a presidential statement read by Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri of India, which holds the Council’s rotating presidency this month…

It stressed that “the only solution to the current crisis in Syria is through an inclusive and Syrian-led political process, with the aim of effectively addressing the legitimate aspirations of and concerns of the population which will allow the full exercise of fundamental freedoms for its entire population, including that of expression and peaceful assembly..."

[T]he statement sends other signals as well. It explicitly warns against attacks on government institutions. On the view of the Security Council, a full-scale revolt by the Syrian people against the government–a regime that has been killing protesters for weeks–is not justified. The Council statement also insists that the “only solution to the current crisis in Syria is through an inclusive and Syrian-led political process.” The meaning is clear: outside intervention is not a solution.

The Council is willing to concede that the Assad government has gone too far. But it’s not willing to acknowledge the right of Syrians to forcefully evict their repressive rulers and it does not accept that outsiders have the right to assist them in doing so.
A letter will not stop a genocidal maniac
