United Nations secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, made a statement at the opening of General Assembly's annual ministerial meeting on Tuesday, that actually depicts the degree of degeneration of international relations and institutions:
“Present in this hall today are representatives of governments that have ignored, facilitated, funded, participated in or even planned and carried out atrocities inflicted by all sides of the Syria conflict against Syrian civilians,”
The head of the United Nations actually admitted that in the meeting were present some representatives of the big corporate interests who conduct proxy wars in a brutal geopolitical game, sacrificing millions of lives. Moreover, he can't do anything about it!
Ki-moon of course wouldn't dare to name specifically those representatives, because he would have to refer not only to the Russian officials for supporting the Assad regime, but also to the Western leaders and their allies, who are the main responsible for the Syrian chaos, after all.
Therefore, he would have to refer to Saudi Arabia and Turkey, as plenty of evidence showed that these countries, allies of the Western powers, conducted a proxy war against Assad, by supporting ISIS barbarians through various ways.
He would also have to refer to the United States and other main Western powers that armed and trained various groups of the so-called "Syrian opposition", which were related in many cases with extremists close to ISIS, in another proxy war against Assad. The result was the absolute chaos in the Middle East.
Under different circumstances, many of these representatives could be easily charged with war crimes, but not in this world.
A small sample of the Western determination to topple Assad regime can be identified in Francois Hollande's statements as he “blamed the Syrian regime for the collapse of a recently-brokered US-Russian ceasefire. 'The Syrian tragedy will be seen by history as a disgrace for the international community if we do not end it quickly,' he told the General Assembly in New York.”
The goal of West remains the same. No matter what it takes, no matter how many more people will lose their lives and homes, Assad must be eliminated. That's all they care about, in order to open the road for the corporate invasion, as they did in Libya.
Think about it. These hypocritical clowns frequently wonder why the fascists are rising in Europe and elsewhere. They should look in the mirror, and just for once, make an honest self-criticism.
