Clinton: UN Security Council Failed Syria | Middle East | English

Via VOA, Clinton: UN Security Council Failed Syria | Middle East | English:
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the U.N. Security Council has failed in its responsibility by not passing a resolution condemning Syria for its brutal crackdown on civilian protesters.

Without mentioning Russia and China by name, Clinton said Wednesday the two countries would have to explain their vetoes "to the Syrian people."

Moscow and Beijing blocked a resolution Tuesday written by France, Britain, Germany and Portugal, sparking U.S. and European outrage. The watered-down measure contained only possible references to sanctions against Syria if Damascus pursues its military crackdown on pro-reform protesters.
A lot of us owe the Syrians an explaination.
