Syria: Effective American Leadership Needed

Syria’s long-suffering people need U.S. leadership, and they need it now.

The situation is dire as activists say more than 14,000 people have been killed since the uprising began in March 2011.

But effective action has been held up at the United Nations due to Russia’s diplomatic protection of the Assad regime, which it is aiding.

On Thursday, Russia withdrew its support of a U.N. plan for a national unity government in Syria, because Moscow refuses to support the ousting of the murderous Assad regime. In fact, Russia has actively helped prolong the violence through its continued supply of weapons to the regime. And rather than helping Syria to become a safer, more secular nation, Russia still insists on including state sponsors of terror and Islamist states such as Iran to help resolve the situation.
