I haven't blogged much about Syria recently because I'm so discouraged. As suspected the Arab league monitor system failed. Sadly there was more daily deaths in Syria with the monitors in the country then there had been before. At least the Arab League has said, Syria is not living up to it;s end of the bargain and pulled out the monitors and is bringing a resolution to the UN.
If only Russia would see the light and go with the flow rather then against the resolution. Russia doesn't want to support action against Syria because then they can no longer sell their weapons. What is for sure is that Russia's hands are just as bloody as Assads.
I was too exhausted to go stand at the Russian Consulate this past Sunday but at least I was happy to hear about 50 people showed up even though the event was put together at the last minute. John Jantac took photo's. This coming Saturday there is a fund raising dinner that I will most likely attend, this should make me less guilty for missing the event on Sunday.
This morning the article in Al Jazeera has the US saying Assad's days are numbered. Let's pray that this is true. The Syrian people keep fighting and moving on and hopefully very soon Assad will be gone.
