Hillary Clinton Says Russia and China Will Pay A Price For Standing With Assad

The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood's best friend
Paris (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lambasted Russia and China on Friday for blocking efforts to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has lost a key general to defection.

Speaking at the Friends of Syria conference in Paris, Clinton called on Russia and China to "get off the sidelines" and accused them of "standing up for" al-Assad's regime. She urged the other 100 or so nations and organizations represented at the summit to "make it clear that Russia and China will pay a price" for that position.

"I ask you to reach out to Russia and China and not only ask but demand that they get off the sidelines," she said. "I don't think Russia and China believe they are paying any price at all, nothing at all, for standing with (the) Assad regime."

But it was unclear whether those two nations would reverse their long-standing opposition to forcing al-Assad from power. The two trade partners of Syria have vetoed previous efforts by the U.N. Security Council to condemn the violence in Syria and oust al-Assad. Neither Russia nor China was represented at the Paris meeting.

  1. The degree of tax scams out there grows each and every year. There are cons out there that are out to acquire as much information as they can from you so they can report taxes as you and pickup your refund. What's even scarier is that all these crooks demand is a computer and a database of email addresses. The victim regularly has no idea who did and it's practically hopeless to track. Get the info to stay firm this tax time of year.
