EU to toughen sanctions after Syria bloodbath
EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS – The EU is likely to toughen sanctions against the Syrian regime after some 100 people were reportedly killed in the city of Hama when government tanks stormed in on Sunday (31 July), crushing protests in the five-month-long stand-off with President Bashar Assad.
“I am shocked at the latest reports from Syria that large numbers of civilians have again been killed in a totally unjustified assault by Syrian security forces on the town of Hama, using tanks and other heavy weapons against citizens exercising their right to peaceful protest,” EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said in a statement.
Condemning the killing which took place on the eve of the holy month of Ramadam, Ashton said that the actions “once again show the hollowness of the promises of reform made by the government” and urged Assad’s government to engage in a real dialogue with opposition.
Germany has requested that the UN Security Council meets on Monday to discuss the situation. Punitive measures have so far been put in place at EU and US level only.
The UN Security Council – made up of 15 permanent and rotating members – has so far failed to agree even a resolution condemning the Syrian crackdown because Russia and China – both allies of Damascus – have threatened to veto it.
Brazil, India and South Africa have also indicated they do not support the draft French and UK text for fear it may lead to another military intervention as in Libya.
Meanwhile, the EU is likely to toughen sanctions against the Assad regime by blacklisting five further people from his entourage. The EU has already banned some 20 people from travelling or doing business with member states, including a dozen firms linked to the Syrian army. – EUObserver
Satan is desperately trying to save his beast but no salvation will come for the United States. The financial crisis will worsen. All plans conceived will fail. The economy will go down in ruins. The government will take aim on the religious community to try and gain its wealth from the reserves of the churches, but all will fail as the debt ratio climbs and the economy continues to shrink into oblivion. Nothing can change this from happening. It’s Father’s will.
And because Father began the economic fall with Satan’s prized beast it will continue to quake a path of economic failures around the globe. It will be a domino toppling effect. Satan will be forced to consider the restructuring of the monetary system with the European Union leading the way. As the image of the beast rises to help end the worldwide crisis, the United States will sanction its authority.
Revelation 13:15 “He was permitted to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”
Those that resist the rise of the image of the beast will be executed for resistance to the new authority. There will be a one world currency. There will be a removal of Christianity.
