Aleppo: How Americans are Being Lied to


EIR's Jeff Steinberg sits down with Virginia State Senator Richard Black to discuss the reality on the ground in Aleppo, Syria vs. the lies permeating the Western press. Having recently returned from a tour of Syria, including a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Black is committed to educating his fellow Americans about how U.S./UK strategy of regime change is destroying this once prosperous, non-belligerent and progressive country.



Here is a retired US Marine Colonel, State Senator Richard Black, explaining how the Syrians and Russians are fighting against terrorist forces in Aleppo, and that civilians are NOT being targeted. He explains that the Syrian Army has a record of offering amnesty or safe passage for civilians and fighters in various areas held by extremist forces (who are paid mercenaries) in order to remove them from the battlefield. A huge fact raised is that the terrorists used a heavy armoured brigade (3000+ troops) in Aleppo with 95 tanks, and that this attack failed to breakout their encircled forces. This is a very reasoned assessment of the situation.

ps. The situation unfolded as estimated on this blog, where instead of breaking out of the encirclement the jihadists threw resources into what was a cauldron of fire that lead to massive losses.
They has opened themselves up to concentrated attacks by the Syrian Army and Russian Air Force. The huge losses they sustained were unsurprising. They fed themselves into a meat grinder in trying to keep the pocket open. In the end they are expendable troops, intended as fodder in a war of attrition.
