Were Russia and China right to vetoe the latest UN resolution on Syria?
I don't think there's any question about the appaling wrong doings of the Assad regime and thousands of innocent civilians have died since the beginning of the up-rising March last year.
However time and time again, (including during the Libya uprising) Russia and China have vetoed all UN sanctions on the Assad regime.
Does anyone agree with this? Is there perhaps a side of the story that the western media isn't reporting? Maybe thre are conflicting views on how the crisis can be solved or are Russia and China only trying to protect their own political interests?
