Secretary Clinton gave a very non-committal, diplomatically sanitized report in Denmark today on why intervention in Syria was not a feasible option at this time. If not now - when? While offering various rationales against a U.N.-sanctioned intervention - Libya-style - she utterly failed to offer any alternate course of action to end the interminable conflict and bloodshed in Syria. Making the matter of intervention dependent on Russia's consent is an admission of impotence both for the U.N. as well as for the U.S. and places them in a very vulnerable position vis-a-vis Russia. Since - according to Clinton - civil war in Syria is almost certainly unavoidable if the current situation continues unabated, intervention on a humanitarian basis should be an imperative to be espoused and embarked upon by the U.N. and the community of nations.
