'Fog of pre-war over Syria'

6 years ago4 views

The UN Security Council is pouring over the details of a new draft resolution on Syria, put forward by Russia. It condemns all sides in the ongoing conflict, calling for violence to stop - but there's no mention of sanctions. Moscow's been trying to mediate a peaceful solution for months, but there's been little let-up in the violence. Over two dozen state security officers were killed in recent clashes by defectors. The Free Syrian Army claims to have more than 25-thousand troops, fighting to bring down President Assad. Western states still don't acknowledge that anti-regime protesters are armed. For more on this RT talks to Pepe Escobar, columnist and an Asia Times correspondent, joining us from Sao Paulo.
