US Threatens to Apply the Terrorist Weapon Against Russia- 48 Hour Aleppo Truce?

The US talk has been over the top the last couple of day. 
Shrill would be the word "being sharply insistent on being heard"
From all I read, nothing new- Just more of the same. Including yet another threat aimed at Russia!

Saved this yesterday from WSJ

WASHINGTON—Secretary of State John Kerry told his Russian counterpart Wednesday that the U.S. was preparing to suspend its engagement with Moscow on Syria if Russia doesn’t take “immediate steps” to halt an offensive on Aleppo and restore a cease-fire.

Mr. Kerry spoke with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov via phone on Wednesday, their first conversation since a brief meeting last Friday in New York.

“The secretary stressed that the burden remains on Russia to stop this assault and allow humanitarian access to Aleppo and other areas in need,” said State Department spokesman John Kirby, describing the phone call between the two diplomats.
Mr. Kerry told Mr. Lavrov Wednesday that the U.S. was preparing to suspend preparations for the next phase of the agreement—establishment of a “Joint Implementation Center,” which would allow the former Cold War rivals to share targeting information on Islamist militant targets.
Russian officials didn’t immediately comment on the conversation between Mssrs. Kerry and Lavrov.

Russia says it would support 48 hour truce in Aleppo

MOSCOW - A top Russian diplomat says a United States' threat to halt co-operation with Russia in the Syria conflict constitutes an "emotional breakdown" and says Russia is willing to support a 48-hour cease-fire around Aleppo.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on Thursday rejected Washington's calls for a seven-day pause in hostilities, but said Russia is willing to support a 48-hour truce for humanitarian purposes
 Ryabkov was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying of the U.S. that "a certain emotional breakdown occurred."

What was the "emotional breakdown" comment a reference to?
Clearly it was a threat made by the US to employ terrorists against Russia

 US comments on a possible Daesh terrorist group threat facing Russia reflect a state of "emotional breakdown" that practically spurs the banned terrorist organization into action, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Thursday.
"Once again there was a certain emotional breakdown yesterday against the backdrop of the Obama administration's unwillingness to fulfill its part of the agreements that required great inter-agency efforts, primarily from our Ministry of Defense colleagues and of course the considerable efforts of [Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov. These poorly concealed invitations to 'apply' the terrorist weapon against Russia is a measure of the political baseness that current US administration has reached in its approach to affairs in the Middle East, and specifically to the situation in Syria," Ryabkov said.
Rybakov is stating that once again the US is threatening to apply the terrorist weapon against Russia

  3. The worst case scenario: Turkish army and FSA go to Al Bab (very close to Aleppo City), then ISIS successfully attacks Aleppo from the east side, Nusra attacks Aleppo from the west side, the US deploys special forces to Kurdish controlled districts in Aleppo City, and finally Turkey, the US, moderates and the Kurds are "liberating" Aleppo from bad guys (ISIS). This is quite unrealistic, but nonetheless possible.
