UN Security Council P5 meet over attacking Syria hits roadblock; Russia, China "walk out"

US Ambassador Samantha Power criticized the Russians and Chinese in a series of Twitter messages, saying their refusal to back the British draft was their latest effort to block action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"Unfortunate outcome of P5 meeting: Russia ~~amp;amp; China continue to block meaningful Security Council action on Syria, impeding UN path forward," Power wrote.

Earlier, Power left the meeting of the permanent five council members without commenting to reporters, as did envoys of Britain, France, Russia and China. The draft resolution was sent back to the governments of the five countries for consultations, according to a Western diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were private.

Of course I have no love for Samantha Power nor husband Cass Sustein. These people are so obsessed with themselves, how can they provide leadership at the highest level of decision making?

This is a false statement - Just an afterthought on Syria Crisis.

US bases decision on findings Israel's IDF Unit 8200 and more war rhetoric from retired intelligence chief general Amos Yadlin.
