Syria Ceasefire In Tatters – Why and What’s Next?

The apparent attack on a humanitarian convoy in the rebel-held part of Aleppo seems to be the final nail in the coffin of the latest ceasefire in Syria. The US blames the Russians for what it calls an “airstrike” on the aid convoy, but the Russians deny that they or the Syrians bombed the convoy. Was it a rebel provocation, like the gas attack at Ghouta in 2013? How do the Russians or Syrians benefit by attacking a UN aid convoy just as the world is watching Aleppo?

  1. Churkin recently made a comment which I have held as my personal view for a long time. Paraphrasing it: Countries which cause perpetuate war and chaos should be made to pay the lion’s share of the costs. This would go a long way to resolving the refugee crisis. Imagine if every EU member state sent Washington a bill.

  2. I think that Washington may actually want an “Islamic State” in Syria. That way they never have to leave. The D.I.A. has certainly made that ambition clear and our policy on the ground seems to reflect this as well. How can anyone make peace with a nation that seeks perpetual violence? Russia making peace with NATO makes about as much sense as Syria making peace with ISIS. Dime’s worth of difference.
