Clinton to Syria: Stop, Or I'll Say Stop Again

The Detroit News: Clinton: Syrian regime must agree to cease-fire

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the Syrian regime will have "more blood on its hands" if it doesn't immediately comply with cease-fire demands being issued by a group of 70 Western and Arab nations.
Well, isn't that Assad's intent after all, to get blood on his hands? Kill off as many opponents as possible while the world utters some meaningless demands that he stop and cease only when there's a credible threat to his regime or all his enemies are dead?
In opening remarks to an international conference of the Friends of Syria group, Clinton said the regime of President Bashar Assad has "ignored every warning, squandered every opportunity and broken every agreement."
And its unlikely her latest demand that he stop will be heeded, unlike all the previous demands to stop.

Hillary's previous statements on Syria at the behest of the Obama Administration haven't done much either.

Its almost as if Obama is purposefully sending Hillary Clinton forth making ridiculous statements and ineffective demands without any real backing from the administration. Could this have been in order to deliberately render her ineffective and prevent her from being a possible contender to his campaign for reelection this year?

Or is this approach just in line with the Obama Doctrine with its approach of having America rely on soft power and platitudes in foreign affairs?
