    The US and France have been pushing hard for a Security Council resolution which would lay the ground for open intervention in Syria. This was opposed by Russia and China, and the interventionists had to settle for a non-binding condemnation. What the media does not mention is that the Arabs are dead set against anything that is done in the name of the so-called Freedom to Protect. The F2P as it is called is the most cynical instrument that has ever been devised to justify the murkiest and most malevolent schemes that the West may wish to dream up, and Ban Ki-moon has earned my everlasting loathing for fathering it. It is the justification for Nato’s intervention in Libya. The Arab people don’t want Western intervention under F2P or whatever other pretext, because they know what Western intervention will lead to. What is not being mentioned much is that Arab leaders are not keen on the F2P either because they know it can be used against them any time that suits the West. Hence the unprecedented stirring of the Arab League and the belated awakening of the Saudi King and Erdogan. My guess is that the Arabs and Turks would have preferred to stay out of what is happening in Syria, but have to act in order to forestall further meddling by the Americans.
