Horrific events today relating to an attack on school children at a bus stop in western Aleppo. Sadly, deaths have occurred. It is one of the first times I have seen coverage from the western side (government side). Invariably, all coverage is usually from the eastern (rebel-held) side, as western media blames the Syrian government and Russia for the killings. Of course, who these rebels actually are is still very murky, probably something the Western media is keen to continue. The US continues to play games re Al-Nusra/Al-Queda, and appears to be in what Russia Today calls a “schizophrenic” relationship. Clearly the US and its twisted allies are fighting a losing political battle, but nonetheless seem to prefer the killing to continue in the hope they can still overthrow the legitimate government in Syria.
