'On the ground, pro-regime forces continued to tighten their grip on key urban terrain despite the diplomatic negotiations. Pro-regime forces mounted renewed attacks on opposition-held districts of Aleppo City following the expiration of a local truce on March 11. Pro-regime forces also increased the pressure on the besieged opposition enclaves on the outskirts of Damascus, including a major advance in Eastern Ghouta. The encirclement of Aleppo City and the expulsion of opposition groups from the capital remain two of the top strategic priorities of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad." ISW
I summon the obviously competent analysts at ISW to abandon their employment by the the Ziocon ISW and presumably by a vendu retired general whoever he is. If you leave these clapped out neocons I promise to try to raise the money to create a new home in which you can write without foreign interference. In the meantime I will send the Kagans and Nuland (down with Russia!) more money to keep you afloat. Come to Jesus-Muhammad-Moses!
Yes, the Syrian government is doing what it can to save Syria as a multi-confessional state, but, IMO they lack the means. Also, IMO the Russians seem to be susceptible to BS from Obama/Kerry. This is sad. It should seem sad to you.
How long will you persist in following this awful cause of deception? pl
