Russia: Reviving truce requires inclusion of all


by Jim W. Dean,  VT Editor  … with Press TV, Tehran

[ Note: Russia is demanding what it knows the US coalition cannot deliver, control over its own jihadi groups. It is beginning to look like these groups have been getting supplied enough from Saudi Arabia and Qatar that they may be countermanding US orders to cooperate with the ceasefire efforts.

And if push came to shove, who is going to be able to confirm if the rebels have really separated from the al-Nusra folks anyway? I don’t foresee either roll call formations any time soon, or the "good terrorists” wearing ankle bracelets.

I have found no reports of artillery fire being used inside the city. The SAA and Russians are going with the guided-bomb strikes only to keep the civilian casualties down. They were warned to get away from all jihadi command centers and concentrations.

The battle grinds on; and with it, the suffering of the people still trapped inside… JD ]

Russia says reviving a ceasefire in war-torn Syria is possible only if all warring sides are involved.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Russia’s unilateral concession is not enough for the revival. He also called for an investigation into the collapse of a ceasefire in Syria brokered by Russia and the US on September 9.

The truce came to an end after a week when U-S-led forces attacked a Syrian army base, and an aid convoy was hit. Russia’s top diplomat also reiterated his calls for the separation of the so-called moderate opposition forces from the Nusra Front terrorists.

He noted that there is evidence that the opposition militants have merged with the Nusra Front.

    Ass Carter AKA Fred Flintstone and General Joseph Dunford dime dancing with Lady Graham. Government leeches want more war, here’s hoping the Bear lays their torso wide open next cock up.

    Only one party had anything to benefit from striking a convoy like this…the US coalition. The Predator drone taking off and arriving a few minutes before the event happened, and then hanging around for half and hour and flying back to Incirlik should have a Congressional investigation to determine if it was a rouge operation, and if not, who ordered the mission and whether had carried ordinance. The big clue here is that the Predator was not roving to gather Intel over the whole Aleppo battlefield, but was sent to that spot for a specific reason, which we all can make a good guess as to what that was.

    US and Russian goals in Syria remain irreconcilable and always have been. It is the root of why the diplomatic venue has repeatedly failed. Come hell or high water, the best course for Syria and Russia now is to continue the current offensive in Aleppo and bring it under Assad’s control. There is only a military solution now,
