China silent on Syria as violence, diplomacy grows

BEIJING –  The Chinese government has kept silent about the crisis in Syria following the latest escalation of violence there and intensified diplomatic efforts.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pressed President Hu Jintao on an urgent need for action to stop the violence during a visit to Beijing Wednesday amid a push to get Russia and China to back a tougher response to attacks by President Bashar Assad’s regime.

China’s Foreign Ministry said Hu discussed Syria with Ban but did not provide details.

Most state media outlets carried reports on Wednesday’s bombing in Damascus without commenting on China’s position. The Global Times newspaper’s Chinese edition says in an editorial that no matter how the situation unfolds in Syria, Beijing should maintain its position of opposing external military intervention.

    Assad makes Al Qaeda look like not so evil. Of course Assad is not a threat to the west but Al Qaeda is one.

    This is none of our business. Let’s bring the peace to Syria. But first lets burn down the Alawites and their supporters.

    Will the Russians engage the FSA if the Russians have a base in Syria ?

    If the FSA can take on the Assad regime at it’s full force what will Russia do ?

    What will you do with Russia when their business people start kissing your ass for business. Buy from them wheat like the NTC in Libya did after the end of the war ?

    The political councils forget. Do we forget ?
