A boy holds placard reading "Russia is the Syrian people's enemy", during a demonstration against Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in Sermada near Idlib June 19, 2012. Russia and China have not agreed to any plan for the removal of al-Assad from power but recognize the dangers of an all-out civil war in the country, U.S. President Barack Obama says as Assad's forces bombard the city of Homs and clash with rebels.
