London Uses "Friends of Syria" Meeting to Escalate Against Russia and China
February 26, 2012 • 9:52AM

Although the formal outcome of the "Friends of Syria" meeting held Feb. 24 in Tunisia, fell short of London's desire to immediately topple Syria's Assad by arming as well as recognizing the Al Qaeda-linked Syrian National Council (SNC) as "the legitimate representative" of the Syrian people, and enforcing regime change through foreign military-protected "humanitarian corridors," the underlying actual British objective of using Syria and Iran to target Russia and China to launch World War III is going full speed ahead.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague, in the London pre-meeting for the Tunisia gathering, threatened Russia and China: "It is very important in Moscow and Beijing for there to be a re-evaluation of the position" as Syria continues to slide "towards greater chaos and bloodshed." He denounced Assad as a "criminal regime" and said that Britain would move to recognize the SNC: "We will now treat them and recognize them as a legitimate representative of the Syrian people," the exact formulation that came out of the Tunisia meeting the next day.

Britain's Saudi agents joined the pile-on against Russia, with Saudi King Abdullah telling President Medvedev during a phone conversation that there was nothing to discuss. "The Russian friends should have coordinated with the Arabs before Russia used its right to veto in the Security Council. Now, any dialogue about what happened is pointless," DP-news quoted Abdullah saying. The article adds that Sheikh Saleh Luhaidan, former chairman of the Supreme Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia, has called on Gulf oil producers to stop selling oil to Russia and China.
