3. Too late to edit, but I just happened on an article about why Russia and China have been refusing.
(Found it while I was browsing the cnn site for newer articles to post in LBN and GD.)

http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/05/world/meast/syria-china-r...

Not to say that the article is gospel, but it does attribute monetary issues, like arms sales from Russia and imports by Syria from China in general.

An excerpt:

"Analysts say both China and Russia have their reasons to maintain good relations with Syria.

Russia is one of Syria's biggest arms suppliers. And China ranked as Syria's third-largest importer in 2010, according to data from the European Commission."
