    Men prepare to throw eggs at the Chinese embassy during an anti-Syrian regime protest in Tripoli, Libya, Monday, Feb. 6, 2012. Russia and China have vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution aimed at ending Syria's bloodshed, despite international outrage over a devastating bombardment of the city of Homs by President Bashar Assad's forces. The veto and the show of support by Russia last Saturday raised concerns that Assad's regime could now unleash even greater violence to crush the revolt against his rule, assured that his ally would prevent international action while continuing its weapons sales to Damascus.
