RT Russia Today with Yulia Shapovalova: Calls to stop Syria ‘killing machine’ at UN as Russia, China slam sanctions

by

Jacob Hornberger, the founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation, told RT that the only thing UN resolutions can do is “pour fuel onto the fire.”

“That is the whole idea of these resolutions,” he explained. The real thrust of any resolution on Syria would be regime change, he added: “It begins with sanctions. It goes into embargoes, blockades. But ultimately, the quest is to remove a dictatorship, and install a US regime even if it happens to be a dictatorship.”

And Ali Rizk, an expert on Middle Eastern affairs, believes Russia’s firm stance on the issue – and its veto power in the UNSC – will keep President Bashar Assad’s enemies from toppling his government.

“I think we are heading towards people taking into consideration the Russian proposal of  power-sharing, with Bashar Assad staying in power,” he told RT.
