British Escalate Violence in Syria
March 18, 2012 • 9:17AM

Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan addressed a closed-door meeting of the UN Security Council by video link on March 16, and told them that his discussions with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had been disappointing so far—presumably because Assad had not acquiesced to his London-scripted demands. Annan also called for a "stronger and more unified message" from the UNSC, a transparent attack on Russia and China's continuing opposition to the British-Obama policy of regime change, destruction of national sovereignty, and war.

Today, a car bomb exploded in Damascus in front of the aviation intelligence department and a police building, killing 27 and injuring 97, according to reports on Syrian TV. Video footage shows the front of the building blown away. No one has claimed responsibility yet. And Western media continue to try to give the impression that Syrian opposition forces are demanding foreign military intervention, with Yahoo news and AFP reporting on several thousand protesters in Aleppo demanding "immediate military intervention by Arabs and Muslims, followed by the rest of the world."
