After bombing hospitals and aid convoys during the latest abortive cease-fire in the Syrian War — notice I didn’t say “civil war” because this is now a global conflict — Moscow on Thursday generously proposed a 48-hour window to allow relief supplies to enter the besieged city of Aleppo, which Syrian government forces are doing a very good job of reconquering with Russian support.
The offer is the centerpiece of a brutally effective propaganda campaign in the textbook “hybrid warfare” scenario we are witnessing in the Middle East. Russian President Vladimir Putin is just simply mopping the floor with President Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry, in Syria and elsewhere. Mr. Kerry still can’t get over the fact that another world leader actually cares about the country he leads and pursues its interests, instead of chasing after some greater, secret agenda that doesn’t include national borders.
