Attacks surge in Aleppo
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday that at least 49 civilians had been reportedly killed in rocket attacks carried out by foreign-backed militants in the government-held areas of the city of Aleppo over the previous six days.
Once Syria’s main commercial hub, Aleppo became divided between the government and militants in 2012.
The official SANA agency said on Friday that militants shelled a mosque in a government-held area of the city, killing at least 15 people and wounding 30. State TV said the attack on the Malla Khan mosque in the Bab al-Faraj neighborhood and its surroundings came when the worshipers were leaving after Friday Prayers.
Jamil blamed a group of militants supported by Saudi Arabia for the alleged collapse of a broad ceasefire which came into effect in Syria in late February for the warring sides to open peace talks under the auspices of the United Nations in Switzerland.However, the High Negotiation Committee (HNC) withdrew from the talks last week, accusing the government of violating the truce.
“The Riyadh group leaving the talks is one of the stages of this conspiracy against the ceasefire in Syria,” Jamil said, adding that militants supported by the HNC continue to derails efforts aimed at reaching a permanent ceasefire in Syria.
As I reported in a recent post...the US responded to the Syrian people speaking out--with their democratic voice--voting Assad back into the Syrian Presidency...with the appallingly antidemocratic and criminal invasion of northern Syria by "planting 250 US military boots on the ground". As in Latin America....the target country is not allowed to be democratic...just the hegemon (if that).
Meanwhile...in other illogical news...Russia is pointing out that
NATO greedy for geopolitical space, wants to encircle those who disagree – LavrovRussian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov points out the US attempt to "present things upside down" by building military bases encircling Russian borders and then accusing Russia of "acting dangerously" when it maneuvers around its own borders.
NATO expansion to the East enables the alliance to deploy forces next to Russia’s borders and then accuse Moscow of “acting dangerously” near the alliance’s bases, the Russian foreign minister told a Swedish media outlet.
“This is a dirty attempt to present things upside down,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Sweden’s Dagens Nyheter daily.
“NATO military infrastructure is inching closer and closer to Russia’s borders. But when Russia takes action to ensure its security, we are told that Russia is engaging in dangerous maneuvers near NATO borders. In fact, NATO borders are getting closer to Russia, not the opposite,” the Russian FM pointed out.
Common logic is just for the plebs. As the US has reinforced in the above two recent instances...it don't need no stinkin' badges and it don't need no stinkin' logic.
The song in the video below should be the new "National Anthem" of the US...I can't abide the warmongering "Stars and Stripes" anyway ("....bombs bursting in air...gave proof through the night...that Our Flag was still there.")
