Farcical Syria Ceasefire in Name Only

Farcical Syria Ceasefire in Name Only

by Stephen Lendman

Syrian and Russian forces are strictly observing Geneva ceasefire terms as expected. US-supported terrorists violated them 23 times on day one, according to Russia’s General Staff, closely monitoring what’s going on daily.

According to Russian General Staff Major General Viktor Poznikhir, “Syrian government forces have completely stopped shelling, except for the areas occupied by ISIS and al-Nusra militants.”

“Unfortunately that can’t be said about the armed forces of (mischaracterized) moderate opposition (fighters comprised of cutthroat killers), backed by the United States.”

They’re shelling residential areas, killing civilians and injuring others. No cessation of hostilities exists. Expect none ahead. Endless war, related violence, chaos, and human suffering continues.

Washington and its rogue allies planned things this way. They control anti-government fighters, can stop attacks by ordering them ceased, along with halting supplies of weapons, munitions and other material support. 

Instead conflict continues with no prospect for resolving things. Hillary will escalate war if she succeeds Obama. He’s treading water, continuing proxy aggression, expecting her to take over in January, a breath-holding moment awaiting how aggressive she’ll be.

Obama exceeded George Bush’s worst crimes, bombing seven countries, waging endless wars of aggression in multiple theaters. 

Expect Hillary, if anointed president, to perhaps go where no previous US leader dared - waging thermonuclear war, creating overnight holocaust conditions in countries attacked, putting humanity’s survival up for grabs.
