Well Russia and China do not want to set any precedent where , the Security Council can in future pass strictures on the human right abuses in their countries.

Who cares for Syrians? certainly not Assad.

There is a point here, although I will put it slightly differently. I would say Russia is the lock, China the key and the rest of the world the cage.

Just as any cage without the lock and key being ineffective, any embargo without the participation of Russia and China would be futile.
