Clinton: Russia Stance Won’t Work

While speaking in Denmark, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Russia’s policies make civil war in Syria more likely. “[The Russians] are telling me they don’t want to see a civil war. I have been telling them their policy is going to help to contribute to a civil war,” she said, adding, “the Syrians are not going to listen to us. They will listen maybe to the Russians, so we have to keep pushing them.” Clinton also explained that the case for military intervention in Syria gets stronger every day. A spokesman for U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron expressed a similar sentiment saying that “all the options on the table” are being considered.
