I would not call the situation in Aleppo a total stalemate. Although the fighting forces inside the city have moved little over the past few month the opposition groups fighting in the surrounding country are making gains. This is cutting into the inner city supply lines and squeezing the regime forces tighter into a small perimeter on the West side of the city. Last report is that the Aleppo international airport is still shut down which further hurting supplies and reinforcements. The regime might still be able to pull divisions out from the city and move them to Damascus or the coast. But these regime soldiers are looking more and more like sitting ducks everyday.

The bodies found in part of Allepo that is controlled by Al-Qaida terrorrist groups, and not the Arabian Syrian Army.

Killing innocent and blaming the Army became an old story.

If these people were killed for religious reasons like the activist claims then they would have been killed by Rebels. The Gov is a secular force. It’s a bit sick that Reuters would even post that inflamitory statement.

Watch out what kind of hate you are promoting here Reuters. The Alawis are a sec of Shi’ite Islam and the Rebels are Sunni. The Sunni’s hate the Shi’tes with a passion and they are the ones trying to inflame the sectarian violence.

“My brother disappeared weeks ago when he was crossing [through] the regime-held zone, and we don’t know where he is or what has become of him,” said Mohammed Abdul Aziz.

Looking for his brother in the piles of bodies in this article. He blames the government. Who the hell would believe anything SANA said?

None of the bodies has any ID on them. So someone had them detained somewhere first most likely. Would be hard to strip 100+ people of their ID and items in plain view. Sounds like a government atrocity.

This article is pathetic. Not worth commenting.

Regime change has failed. The Syrian government is not changeable through deception. The El Salvador and Nicaragua option hasn’t worked and will not work. Wild Wild West please give this crusade for the sake of humanity…

For those who still don’t understand what they’re trying to do in Syria, just look at Mali or even Libya. The only difference is Syria has strong institutions and a disciplined army.

They tested Syria by sacrificing two turkish pilotes. The outcome was not pretty. And that plane was brought down by a relatively small weapon.

“Opposition campaigners blamed the government but it was impossible to confirm who was responsible.”

In reuterspeaks this means probably rebels did it but for the sake of our propaganda against Syria we can not say rebels killed civilians. As usual we must maintain our narrative that rebels never killed any single civilian in Syria. When evidence is black and white against rebels we should report it’s gray.

This so called massacre is discovered in one of “swathes of territories controlled by ‘advancing’ rebels” where there is not a single regular Syrian army soldier.

Every time there is a meeting in the UN(Brahimi is reporting at the UN on his mission)western media must report a “massacre”

This is exactly what Al Nusra is doing to people it’s killing: throwing them down from windows high above and into rivers.
