The EU Joins the Syrian War More Directly

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry went to Europe urging that the European Union drop its embargo on shipments of heavy arms into the hands of the Syrian rebels. Are we surprised that the EU has now done exactly that?

The article says “British Foreign Secretary William Hague says the amended embargo puts pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to seek a non-military solution to more than two years of fighting.”

This is a bald-faced lie. Remember that a political process occurred in February of 2012 when a new Syrian constitution was passed overwhelmingly. Further details on the referendum are here.

The EU’s decision affirms that the EU intends violently to overthrow Assad and install a new government, both actions in violation of their solemn oaths in the U.N. They are not seeking a “non-military solution” to anything, not by intensifying the fighting.
