Clinton: Russia and China will ‘pay price’ for supporting Assad

Russia rejects in the strongest possible terms allegations that it supports President Assad in the Syrian conflict. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Moscow and Beijing must ‘pay a price’ for backing Assad.

“I do not believe that Russia and China are paying any price at all – nothing at all – for standing up on behalf of the Assad regime.  The only way that will change is if every nation represented here directly and urgently makes it clear that Russia and China will pay a price,” Clinton warned.­

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov  said the west is operating within a friend-or-foe framework that he called outmoded.

“We categorically reject that such a question would even be posed regarding the current situation in Syria and Russia’s ‘backing’ of President Bashar Assad. This is not a question of supporting certain political figures or leaders. This is a question of managing a crisis situation in the country within a normal political framework,” Ryabkov said.

“Unfortunately, we’re unable to get a basic understanding from our western partners. The west is still appealing to “friend-or-foe” terms. We considered such terminology to be a thing of the past,” Ryabkov explained.

Why has no Justice or Jury yet sentenced this Hag Clinton to the gallows yet.
She is ‘one’ of the greatest Traitors you have and is continually strutting the world stage trying to get the whole world to hate the USA.

Clinton is only furthering our disfunctional foreign policy. These SOBs ought to pick up a rifle and go into combat if they really believe the tripe they are spewing. They may think twice before committing our brave young men and women to war. Shame on these anti-american socialts. AMERICAN PATRIOT, In Liberty always, Bill
