Richard Black ger på ett bra sätt en välbehövlig genomgång av situationen i Aleppo.

Another interview recently published by the former military Jack Murphy was with a Green Beret soldier who served in Turkey and Syria. The Green Berets are special forces of the U.S. army. They are specialists in training and fighting with indigenous guerrilla groups against governments the U.S. dislikes. The soldier interviewed was ordered to train ”moderate Syrian rebels” in Turkey. Parts of the interview (paywalled) are quoted here:
”No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort”, a former Green Beret writes of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian insurgents, “they know we are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘Fuck it, who cares?’”. “I don’t want to be responsible for Nusra guys saying they were trained by Americans,” the Green Beret added.
Murphy states bluntly: “distinguishing between the FSA and al-Nusra is impossible, because they are virtually the same organization. As early as 2013, FSA commanders were defecting with their entire units to join al-Nusra. There, they still retain the FSA monicker, but it is merely for show, to give the appearance of secularism so they can maintain access to weaponry provided by the CIA and Saudi intelligence services. The reality is that the FSA is little more than a cover for the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra. …
It is one thing when Russia says somesthing, but another when Reuters, WSJ, and independent German and U.S. subject experts report this as facts. The first can be shunned as ”Putin lies” but the others are extremely hard to refute.
Syriens FN-ambassadör intervjuas av Russia Today. Han säger bl.a. att en FN-medarbetare gjort besök på ett sjukhus i Aleppo, men det fanns ingen sjukvårdspersonal där, jihadisterna hade istället gjort det till sitt högkvarter.
Med tanke på alla dessa påståenden i västmedierna om flygbombningar av sjukhus.
