The second reason for the failure of the cease fire was the US attack on the Syrian military base which killed 83 Syrian soldiers allowing Jihadist terrorists to immediately overrun that base. This, in the eyes of many, was no “accident”, for the battle lines at that camp had been unchanged for over one year. US drones circled the area daily, and the US uses sophisticated guidance assisted bombs that can be exactingly precise.
This was not another of the many “accidental “bombings. An excuse the US has hidden behind on many occasions. It appears this was intentional. Either Obama knew of this, or he was defied and overruled by someone who gave the order to bomb the base, as a way of sabotaging the “cease fire”. It is common knowledge, not in MSM, but in informed circles, that there are those pushing hard to create an escalation of events with Russia, and using any means possible to overthrow Assad.
“For now, for us to control all the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war with Syria and Russia,”“That’s a pretty fundamental decision that certainly I’m not going to make.”
What legal right does the US have to bomb Syria? (Hint - None.)
“From our perspective the Russian intervention was extremely beneficial and they have the full support of the Syrian people which contradicts the western narrative. The west accuses Russia of targeting not only the terrorist groups but also the “moderate rebels”. Russia has been very successful in bombing the Islamic State groups so the West is trying to slow their progress by claiming they are targeting the non-terrorist groups and accusing Russia of aiding Bashar instead of targeting DAESH.”
You have not been told Aleppo is divided into two parts, western Aleppo, (1.75 million) is controlled by the Syrian government, but East Aleppo (250,000) is controlled by “terrorists”?
So a Syrian and Russian victoryover the terrorists and jihadistswould be a defeat for those in the USwho want the end of Assad.
Since East Aleppo is the stronghold of Al Nusra, formerly called Al-Qaida, why would the US introduce a resolution to prevent Russians and Syrians from bombing the terrorist stronghold? Russia vetoed the UN resolution and argued the US is trying to protect the terrorist stronghold from Russian and Syrian bombs.
