US Secretary of State John Kerry slammed Russia on Monday for "enabling" Syria's President Bashar al-Assad to stay in power in the war-torn country, after Geneva peace talks broke off without result at the weekend.
" Russia needs to be a part of the solution and not be distributing so much more weapons and so much more aid that they're in fact enabling Assad to double-down. Which is creating an enormous problem."
At the weekend, Kerry blamed the Syrian regime's "obstruction" for the breakdown at the talks.
On Monday he also lashed out at Syria again, saying the regime "refused to open up one moment of discussion legitimately about a transitional government".
"Everybody should agree that the Assad regime's attitude is what has made these talks tougher," he added.

Truly Team Obama has no clue with what they are doing overseas.....really to try and blame just Assad is Pathetic. Now to call out the Russians for providing Arms.....while the Saudi and the US providing weapons and aid. While all around the region and the UN knowing. Is quite lame.
Its increasingly clear this Administration does not know how to proceed forward. They need to wake up.....Syria is not going to be handed to the Sunni and the Saud. Assad is winning.....there is no reason for him to even listen to this BS. No reason to respond.
The entire UN knows the US has backed the Rebels/Terrorists and have done so despite knowing who was all involved with the opposition. When they set up the Original leadership. Trying to fall back onto Obama's words of Assad must go, isn't working. Its not going to work.
So go back and tell Obama get over it.....No one is listening to your lying ass anymore.
