Here's the situation, the Syrian government is cracking down on protests by killing a lot of people. Protestors, doctors, kids, it doesn't matter, if you are perceived as anti-government or are somehow in the way, they may snuff you out. This is at least how the situation is being presented to the West. On the other side of the coin, China & Russia think that Syria should be able to crack down on protestors to "keep the peace" (or keep the current government). That, in a nutshell is what is going on. More after the jump.
