Ministry of Defence said:
Commenting on the Commission of Inquiry’s report on Syria, issued today, the Foreign Secretary said:
The report by the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria paints a devastating picture of human rights abuses and suffering. Our thoughts are with all the Syrian people who continue to endure this terrible situation.
The Commission’s report confirms that the Assad regime bears overwhelming responsibility for the situation in Syria, and for the worst human rights violations and abuses.
We therefore welcome the Commission’s call for the UN Security Council to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court, a course of action that we strongly support. We will remain at the forefront of international efforts to ensure accountability for the crimes being committed in Syria, and will continue to support the work of UN Commission of Inquiry.
The UK condemns in the strongest possible terms all human rights violations and abuses in Syria. We call on all sides to respect international humanitarian and human rights laws, and to pursue a genuine Syrian-led political transition.

So does Hague then wish to ignore the right of millions of people who are happy with the Assad regime then? Or will it all be blanked out once the Euro Med project (or whatever its called this week) has been completed and the West finally gets to insert Western Banks into the country to offer the people loans to rebuild their country .... and thus remain forever in debt to the lovely Western Banks....
And will Hague then ask the 'Syrian' rebels to be so awfully kind as to put down their arms and chemical weapons so that they are not used against their Western benefactors? Well, we don't want a repeat of the Libyan incident now do we now? It's awfully bad for the old morale. After all, the USA likes its ambassadors to return home alive ...
