With fighting continuing in the northern Syria city of Aleppo despite yesterday’s ultimatum, Secretary of State John Kerry now says the US is “on the verge” of suspending all talks with Russia related to Syria, saying talks with the Russians are “irrational” and threatening to “pursue other alternatives.”
This is believed to mean another influx of CIA weapons to “vetted” Syrian rebels, which almost always ends up meaning the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front in practice. Officials say the plan is for more weapons to attack Syrian and Russian artillery, but that Obama still won’t send anti-aircraft weapons.
Unnamed officials were quoted by the Wall Street Journal as saying they believe more arms would be “too late,” and that they are pressing for direct US military action against Syria and Russia, though President Obama is believed to be at least somewhat averse to starting a full-scale war with Russia over the Nusra Front.
Russian officials downplayed the US condemnations and threats, with Deputy FM Sergey Ryabkov saying that they were uninterested in the US “emotional breakdown” over Syria. He suggested a two-day ceasefire proposed by the international community should be explored, but rejected US demands for another week-long pause, citing the last week-long one, only last week, during which Nusra was constantly attacking them.

The US empire is a crazed, mad dog. It acts selfishly, immorally, and irrationally. The world should prepare itself for a Clinton regime. These could be dangerous times.

I don’t see how the Russians could then avoid giving lethal weapons and support to the Taliban. Perhaps these buffoons should think it over.
Send anti aircraft weapons to deter an attack on more hospitals and babies and civilians.Once Russian jets start getting shot out of the sky pull out of Syria let Russia and Syria feel the costs of there actions paid for by the blood of the fighters it’s sending see if the public opinion of the Russian people changes is it worth the cost of those million dollar jets and is the sacrifice of the lives of it’s people worth saving the political future of a dictator left in control by his father.The only way to stop the Bob’s dropping is by making the Russians pay the price.See if it’s worth taking those bombing raids on the innocent people of Aleppo once they’ve got to start dodging anti aircraft missile s.
Oh yeah, give AA weapons to Al Qaida to shoot down Russian jets, what a great effing idea, what could go wrong?
There is a British lady on this site today that told the true story on Aleppo in a short movie . you need to check her story out . I believed her . She says there are no moderate rebel terrorists for the United States to fund . She says 250,000 people are held captive by the terrorists the U.S. is backing in East Aleppo 650 ,000 have already run to the west side . She claims all western news media is lying and not telling the truth about Assad or Syria . I followed Milosevic’s trail in the Hague and found out what kind of liars rule the world from the western side I don’t think you would be saying the things you say if you knew the truth . It took me years to change from your kind of thinking to mine . You only have to see this Ron Paul report today in ANTI war a movie on a British daughter of a former ambassador . She’s been living and reporting on Syria for some time I think you will change your mind .
The EAGLE says we need to give more dangerous weapons to Al-Qaeda and ISIS. And that sums up the US position perfectly.
too bad this whole crew won’t be investigated for providing material support to terrorists. But that only happens to stupid homeless people.
The story is actually different, but censored in NATO media: Both did escalate, but USA first and Russia did react: USA did bomb the UN convoy and the Syrian Army of Assad heavily. Russians wanted to stop them, but they did not. So they did bomb the US command center and kill a half dozen western staff. Of course USA/NATO want to keep it secret, that they are conducting this terrorist war in Syria. I understand, that they are somewhat angry.
Of course I was not there and can not be sure, that this story is the right one. I even do not remind which Russian source I did read (Sputnik (German),, english.pravda.ru or http://www.rt.com etc.).
But reading both sides of an conflict is always advisible, even if both should lie.
In light of the treacherous words and behaviour from Washingon, Lavrov and Russia have no further reason to trust the continuous lies and deceits, subterfuge and dissimulation from Kerry, and the false postures of the Obama regime pretending to desire peace, whilst arming, instructing and directing armies of extremist mercenary jiihadists with a singular ambition to destroy Syria and the entire Middle East for geo-political and economic hegemony. The nest of neo-liberal vipers guided by the likes of Nuland/Cohen, Powell, Rice, Wolfowitz and Kissenger under an executive office controlled by the totally flawed, pathological and deranged frau Clinton will bring humanity closer to nuclear confrontation than the Turkey/Cuban missile crisis that transpired just fifty-four short years ago: 14 October 1962
The euphemistic exercises in semantics truly seem to be leaving the Russians nonplussed. It’s almost like they expected better from us…
Once they get to the point of exasperation with the whole affair, I’d say the gig will be near up for NATO’s war in Syria.
Why didn’t he pull that stunt with Israel when they humiliated the United States when we were trying to get a settlement between the two sides there? Did we threaten to introduce CIA weapons into the West Bank and Gaza?
No doubt the United States insists on supporting the head chopper in Syria . The ones they can’t keep in Syria they want to bring to the U.S. so we can elect more democrats
