Lendman Reports that Russia Keeps Making The Same Mistake Over And Over

Farcical Ceasefire in Aleppo

by Stephen Lendman

Russian/Syrian good faith ceasefire efforts to provide humanitarian relief for thousands of eastern Aleppo residents held hostage as human shields by US-backed terrorists failed as expected.

Ceasefire plays into their [ISIS] hands, letting them regroup, rearm and mobilize for further attacks – with full US support and encouragement.

Russia and Syria know what’s going on and why. So why extend ceasefire another day, two or longer, letting terrorist forces grow stronger? The only way to liberate eastern Aleppo is by smashing them entirely, forcing their remaining elements to surrender or die.

On Friday, Russian General Sergey Rudskoi said extending the humanitarian pause followed requests by pro-Western organizations, including the UN, supporting America’s imperial project.

Russia agreed despite “so-called opposition groups and their curators” preventing anyone from leaving eastern Aleppo. Those trying risk death or serious injury.

A western Aleppo resident told RT International that so-called Free Syrian Army and al-Nusra terrorists “open fire and beat and torture everyone…try(ing) to leave (areas of) the city” they control. His trapped family held hostage can’t get out – nor others in the besieged part of the city.

Another Western Aleppo resident said thousands of eastern city hostages have no food, water, electricity or fuel. “They’ve got nothing,” she said.

Rudskoi said Russian “requests to the Americans to make a positive influence on the fighters of the so-called opposition to make them stop the firing, to let civilians leave, and leave themselves remain unanswered.”

Washington is deliberately and maliciously obstructing ceasefire and efforts to deliver desperately needed humanitarian aid to eastern Aleppo residents.

It’s no secret why. Sustaining hostilities serve its interests, going all-out to prevent Aleppo’s liberation – so far short of direct intervention likely coming under Hillary’s leadership next year, risking direct confrontation with Russia.

According to Rudskoi, eastern Aleppo terrorists mobilized around “1,200 (heavily armed) militants, among them 30 (suicide) bombers…read(ying) to…attack from the militant part of the city.”

The longer Russia extends its humanitarian pause, the stronger terrorists get, the longer it’ll take to defeat them.

US-backed eastern Aleppo fighters continue terrorizing thousands of residents – while their daily shelling kills civilians in liberated parts of the city.

In the last 24 hours alone, eight died, over 30 injured, some seriously. Putin said Russia is willing to suspend airstrikes as long as needed – “until the terrorists in (eastern Aleppo) intensify their activity.”

On Friday, he met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande, and Ukraine’s US-installed puppet leader Petro Poroshenko.

So-called Normandy Four talks accomplished nothing toward resolving conflicts in Syria or Ukraine. Sergei Lavrov and John Kerry discussed conflict in Aleppo by phone. A Russian Foreign Ministry statement followed, saying:

“The heads of the foreign ministries…discussed the ways to normalize the situation in the eastern part of Aleppo, where Syria’s government forces and Russia’s Aerospace Forces have announced a humanitarian pause in their military operations and are ready to extend it if al-Nusra Front and illegal armed groups that have joined it do not violate the ceasefire regime.”

Diplomats talk endlessly, achieving nothing substantive, while Syrians die. How long will Russia continue the ceasefire charade?

It’s harming, not helping defenseless victims, delaying Aleppo’s liberation, key to hoped for eventual triumph in Syria over US imperial ruthlessness!

"Hidden manna from the promised "White Stone", Rev 2:17 P1446:5, 131:3.3 . . . It is evil to see sin where there is no sin; TO SEE NO SIN WHERE THERE IS SIN. Evil is the path of FALSE DOCTRINES. Those who avoid evil BY SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE gain joy by thus embracing the truth. Make an end of your misery BY LOATHING SIN. When you look up to the Noble One, turn away from sin with a whole heart. Make no apology for evil; MAKE NO EXCUSE FOR SIN. By your efforts to make amends for past sins you acquire strength to resist future tendencies thereto. Restraint is born of repentance. Leave no fault unconfessed to the Noble One. 131:3.4 (1447.1) “Cheerfulness and gladness are the rewards of deeds well done and to the glory of the Immortal. No man can rob you of the liberty of your own mind. When the faith of your religion has emancipated your heart, when the mind, like a mountain, is settled and immovable, then shall the peace of the soul flow tranquilly like a river of waters. Those who are sure of salvation are forever free from lust, envy, hatred, and the delusions of wealth. While faith is the energy of the better life, nevertheless, must you work out your own salvation with perseverance. If you would be certain of your final salvation, then make sure that you sincerely seek to fulfill all righteousness. Cultivate the assurance of the heart which springs from within and thus come to enjoy the ecstasy of eternal salvation. ~~ Urantia Book Paper 131 ~~
