Syrian Endgame: The Battle for Aleppo and ‘Plan C’

By Prof. Tim Anderson, August 04 2016

The battle for Aleppo has forced the al Qaeda groups into their desperate last stand, as the Washington-driven proxy war on Syria moves into its final stages. The liberation of Aleppo will be the beginning of the end. The online maps have been misleading. Even before the Russian air power intervention of September 2015 the Syrian Government controlled 85% of the country’s populated areas.

By Eric Zuesse, August 05 2016

A four-minute video that was posted to YouTube on April 29th documents that the US government has been lying about an organization, the White Helmets, the US government hires to assist Syria’s al-Qaeda, called «al-Nusra», to dispose of corpses of persons al-Nusra executes.

John Kerry And Al-Qaeda Join Hands: “Very Different Track” Attack On Aleppo Fails

By Moon of Alabama, August 05 2016

Early May U.S. Secretary of State Kerry set a deadline for “voluntary” regime change in Syria: [He] said “the target date for the transition is 1st of August” in Syria or else the Assad government and its allies “are asking for a very different track.” Hoping that “something happens in these next few months,” he said the political transition would not include President Assad because “as long as Assad is there, the opposition is not going to stop fighting.”
