On August 25, 2013, Huanqiu (the Chinese edition of Global Times) published an editorial titled, “Military Strike against Syria? Obama Needs to Take Time and Think More before Taking Action.” The article stated, “Because of Russia and China’s objections, the UN Security Council cannot possibly pass a mandate authorizing military strikes against Syria. If the United States and NATO want to attack Bashar Assad’s regime, they may use the ‘Kosovo Model’ and air strike on Syria without a UN mandate.”
According to the article, even if Western countries can oust Bashar from his leadership position; it does not mean that a stable situation will arrive in Syria.
