France on Wednesday slammed as "indecent" Russia and China's "blocking" of a proposed United Nations resolution condemning Syria's deadly crackdown on anti-regime protests.

"It is indecent because (Syrian leader) Bashar Assad has mobilized incredible resources to neutralize his opposition," said Defense Minister Gerard Longuet.

"Countries... like China... and Russia must accept common rules: one does not deal with one's opposition with cannon fire," he told LCI television news channel.

French Prime Minister Francois Fillon on Monday said it was "no longer acceptable" that Russia and China were allowed to block a proposed resolution to the U.N. Security Council on Syria.

France, Britain, Germany and Portugal have proposed the resolution condemning the crackdown by Assad's government. Russia and China are strongly opposed and Brazil, South Africa and India have raised strong objections.

Mobs attacked the French and U.S. embassies in Damascus on Monday after the ambassadors of the two countries last week traveled to the flashpoint protest city of Hama, north of the capital.

Why France and the US explain why they sent their ambassadorsto hama?
If this is a Syrian revolution, then let the syrians deal with it...but I guess the revolution in Syria is probably financed by France and the US...
I can believe that The March 14 is also one of those thugs/ mob gangs for those countries....what a joke!

Afterwards, France and the US slammed their heads against one another and then went home with a big headache. Their spouses were so upset because could not enjoy a hot night with them, so they went out together and had a wonderful time of cross-Atlantic passion.
