Twice in the past 20 years, Moscow felt the West has betrayed their good intentions in the face of a potential armed conflict: Iraq in 1991 and Libya last year. This may go far in explaining why Russia won't support a UN resolution on Syria.

With what is going on in Syria and what is going to go on for many years no matter what happens - after all, such things are hard to forgive, it is hard to understand the Russian stance. maybe they still identify with the past when they repressed the Russian people with similar means. Maybe they just don't want to be hypocritical as they may intend to return to such methods if things don't go their way.

There is a moral, ethical, social, issue in relation to Syria. No country should hold the cards over another. Why the hell do we have the UN?

Russia and China show why the UN is not working. It is in their very core of government to do the same to there people or anyone who might oppose them. On the other hand the US is not a saint when it comes to not getting its way
