Or does the concern lie with the fact that if the control of the portion of Aleppo, which has been occupied by US/Israeli backed thugs, swings back into the arms of Syria, the NATO backed destabilization of Syria is a fail! Is the US additionally concerned at the possibility of their thug/terrorist/killer inventory being reduced? One way or another?
The importance of the battle for Aleppo was written about here on January 16/2016 : Syrian Endgame Could Begin in Aleppo- Who Would Block This Pivotal Win? If you didn't read that post then, please, read it now.
It's an interesting read particularly in light of the coup attempt in Turkey.
By that I mean, Turkey had impeded the flow of NATO's jihadis, they built a wall at the border, and were making it difficult for the thugs to flow through. Contrary to main stream and alt media lies.
From January's post "Ask yourself what group or organization would want only to deny Syria’s combined allied forces from taking back Aleppo? The answer is NATO"
Continuing: "NATO occupied Turkey will play their role, but, not the civilian government which is increasingly left out of military decisions"
There is a recounting of a meeting between General Dunford etc., My own commentary written in January regarding that meeting as follows: "Which means the conversation was something like ..... we’ll claim you guys requested this help, but, it's really all part of the plan to prevent Syria from retaking Aleppo which would be the beginning of the end and that just can't happen"
Did the US and company, including Gulen followers, undertake the coup attempt in order to remove the obstacle of the uncooperative civilian government?
As of this moment the US/NATO terror army cannot count on support from Turkey's controlled military. The US/NATO terror army cannot count on cooperation from the civilian government in Turkey. Recall from the other day? General Votel Admits Allies Jailed in Turkey Amid Coup Backlash This lack of cooperation, and loss of allies, will make it difficult to counter Russia and Syria's move to take Aleppo. And isn't that really what the US is worried about? Of course it is! Still think the US wasn't involved in the coup?
The United States is trying to determine whether a Russian plan for a humanitarian operation in Syria is sincere, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday, adding that if it proves a "ruse" it could ruin cooperation between Moscow and Washington"depopulate the city so that the Syrian army can seize it" YAH, they want to depopulate the portion of the city containing NATO's thugs! That's why the amnesty was offered.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government and its Russian allies declared a joint humanitarian operation for the besieged area on Thursday, bombarding it with leaflets telling fighters to surrender and civilians to leave.
U.S. officials have suggested the plan may be an attempt to depopulate the city so that the Syrian army can seize it.
Aleppo, Syria's biggest city before the war, has been divided since 2012 into government and rebel sectors. Retaking it would be the biggest victory for Assad in five years of fighting, and demonstrate the dramatic shift of fortunes in his favor since Moscow joined the war on his side last year.As stated Syria has had control of a good portion of it's city for years now- It only needs to clear the terrorist held side.
This would also be an embarrassment for Kerry, who has led a diplomatic initiative with Moscow aiming to let the Cold War superpower foes cooperate against Islamist militantsAn embarrassment for Kerry. For the US. For NATO- Still think the US wasn't involved in the Turkish coup attempt? It was obvious the move on Turkey would affect the whole area. This is surely the reason that Russia and Iran had to have supported Turkey including warning the civilian government of the coup plot. Recall? Turkey’s Thwarted Coup: No Popular Support for Coup. Dead Erdogan desired? Did Russia Provide Intelligence?
Asked about the Russian operation, Kerry said Washington was still unsure of Moscow's intent: "It has the risk, if it is a ruse, of completely breaking apart the level of cooperation."
"On the other hand, if we’re able to work it out today and have a complete understanding of what is happening and then agreement on the way forward, it could actually open up some possibilities," he added, saying he had spoken with Moscow twice in the past 24 hours to try to clarify what Russian intentions.
The White House also voiced its doubts. "Given their record on this, we're skeptical, to say the least," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said at a news briefing.
Digression, from January's post:" There is no more appropriate city to begin Syria’s healing. A Syrian government victory in Aleppo will make it harder to rationalize Western backing for jihadi groups who want to keep up the fight against long odds in the rest of the country"
The fate of Aleppo in the coming weeks has the potential to be a turning point in a seemingly endless, multi-sided civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people, driven millions from their homes and drawn in most world and regional powers.
So the keystone coup, really was "Keystone" in more ways then I had even entertained!: Pt 2- Turkey's "Keystone Coup": A Failure to Project Power
Back to Reuters
Pro-government forces with Russian backing have advanced in the three months since the ceasefire collapsed, and imposed a siege on the rebel-held sector of Aleppo since early July when they closed the main road out of the city.
So far, the safe zones have not been used. Syrian state television accused the rebels of preventing civilians from leaving, which rebels deny. A state TV reporter in Aleppo said reception centers with health and food supplies had been set up around Aleppo to receive civilians, but so far few had come through because rebel fighters were threatening them.I've no doubt the rebels are threatening the civilians- After all they need dead civilians for the cameras- They need human shields. This is why NATO's thugs move into civilian areas. This is why the PKK took their destabilization to the cities of Turkey. They want dead bodies for the camera-
Privately, U.S. officials fear the Russian proposal masks the real intent of its Syrian ally, to separate boys and men from the rest of the population, claim they are terrorists and either imprison or execute them.The US worries about a reduction in their terrorist/thug inventory... hard to recruit more when your terrorists end up dead or incarcerated, right?
Yet another question: Does this put the planned creation of Kurdistan aka Israel 2.0 in jeopardy. We're going to have to see how this plays out!
UPDATE #1: The agenda pushing, war promoting, NATO loving Guardian- stop this battle cause it will just ruin all of our elitist/NATO plans- furled brows and hands a wringin'
The Guardian view on the battle for Aleppo: stop it now
This battle is an urgent humanitarian catastrophe which could end all hope of a negotiated peace
Typical warmongering NATO media- they don't give a hoot about a humanitarian catastrophe, because it has been NATO, supported by the main stream media, that has created the entirety of this humanitarian catastrophe!
The Guardian is fretting because Assad may not be outed. Overthrown or killed. Syria may not be split apart and Israel 2.0 may not get created- That's all there is to their concern!
