US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has asked Russia to support a draft United Nations Security Council resolution on Syria.

Clinton made the call during a phone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday, AFP reported.

“With regard to Syria, their discussion focused on action in the UN Security Council and how the US and Russia can work together to make sure that we can get to a UN Security Council resolution that supports peace and security in Syria,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Russia opposes a Security Council resolution against Damascus and has called for a diplomatic solution to the unrest in Syria.

Nuland also said Washington is stepping up contacts with opposition groups both inside and outside Syria.

Moscow says the Syrians themselves should resolve their differences without any outside interference.

Since the beginning of the unrest in mid-March, hundreds of people, including security forces, have been killed.

The shadowy opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings. But the government blames armed gangs for the violence, saying that the unrest is being orchestrated from outside the country.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has vowed to bring the people responsible for the killings to justice.

    Alex Jones is right that the world is at crossroads: without starting wars there is no way to prevent revolutions because govts have been in bed with banks, operating in a way to make more profit via death, destruction and deceit than with fair trade and development “for the general good”.

    One only has to look at the banking industry in this country with just over 3 million inhabitants and an average annual income under $6000, to know something absolutely doesn’t compute.

    As resources on the planet are finite, wasting what has been left on wars of conquest will make a transition to a post-oil type of technical civilization impossible, especially after an all-out nuclear war.

    Summarized, either a revolution in every NATO country could prevent WWIII, or a modern equivalent of the ancient Solon:
