Russia weighs in on Syria

A number of states, specifically Russia and China, were weary of foreign intervention in Libya.  Russia ended up abstaining when the critical vote on Libya took place in the Security Council.  According to Al Jazeera, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has now come out saying that Russia will actively support Syria so that it can settle its own affairs.  It is safe to say that no Security Council resolution endorsing intervention of any kind in Syria can avoid being vetoed.

This announcement comes the same day as the Swiss have set new sanctions against Syria, and the day after 27 were reported dead in a Syrian border town after a military crackdown.
