The European Union has announced that it lifted an embargo on Syrian oil in order to help the Syrian opposition, but this was just talk designed to cover the west’s failure in offering true support to the Syrian uprising. It was a bid to tell the western public that the EU was not standing idly by amid the massacres in Syria, and that it wants to help the Syrian uprising. The announcement of the decision, which was justified as an attempt to ease the suffering of civilians, is just talk, and has nothing to do with the reality of things on the ground.
