US two-faced toward Syria

The United States recognized the Syrian Opposition Council, Syria's newly formed main opposition group, as the sole "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people on Tuesday. It is evident that the US-led Western countries are determined to push their own agenda on the Syria crisis.

This will only further complicate the 21-month crisis in Syria, as it runs counter to the international consensus on solving the crisis through political resolutions and pushing for dialogue between the Syrian government and opposition forces.

Nothing is clearer than the US-led Western countries are maneuvering for a regime change in Syria. In an interview with ABC News, US President Barack Obama did not hesitate to call the US recognition "a big step" in the so-called international efforts to unseat Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
