Lavrov Says Ceasefires were ‘Bogus,’ Nixes Future ‘Unilateral’ Meausres

Fort Russ News | September 22, 2016

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov made history today at the UN’s meeting of the Security Council, declaring that future unilateral pauses couched as ‘ceasefire agreements’ are off the table. He has skillfully referred to the mounting factual evidence of the US’s continued flagrant violations on any number of points of agreement over the course of this conflict.

These include primarily the violations of the ceasefire itself, in conjunction with officially leaked elements of the ‘secret text’ of the recent ceasefire which evidence that the US has been unable to reign in a number of groups signing onto previous ceasefires, let alone those groups the US claims to be moderates but did not sign onto the ceasefire, both of which continue to work closely with either ISIS or Jabat Al-Nusra. Russia has no doubt pointed out successfully that several of these groups are fictional entities, and are but operational synonyms of Al-Nusra (formerly called Al-Qaeda of the Levant), itself.

The impossible to ignore context here naturally is the ceasefire ending US joint attack alongside ISIS upon the Syrian Arab Army position at Deir ez-Zor which was sustained and lasted over an hour, despite calls from the Russian coordinating hotline which existed pursuant to standing agreements on deconfliction.

The other defining circumstances included the response of the US State Department at the emergency session of the UN Security Council a few nights ago, in particular the behaviour and callously undiplomatic remarks of representative Power, and the US’s following attempts to blame Russia for the attack on the Red Crescent aid convoy several days later, which increasingly appears as the result of either Al-Nusra militants on the ground or a US predator drone attack using an incendiary device.

Analysts and activists have long debated the utility of the ceasefire agreements. It had been noted, at times passionately, that the ceasefires were observed unilaterally by Russia and had the effect of allowing the US backed terrorist groups, whether organized under the ‘moderate’ banner or not, to rearm and regroup. Aid convoys had long been used as a backdoor to smuggle in needed dual-use basic supplies for repairing weapons, such as nuts, bolts, wiring – and even munitions and new weapons. It had long been documented that first aid and medicines intended for affected civilian populations generally wound up used by terrorist fighting groups inside of occupied parts of Aleppo.

Now this chapter comes to end, and it is revealed that Russia understood clearly all along that this was precisely the case. What was needed was a pretext, a consensus building show-and-tell to the security which provides Russia and its allies on the Security Council and in the international community that ‘we tried Ceasefires – and this is what happened.

This set up the footwork for the final proverbial ‘flying mare’ that launched US foreign policy and its media hologram over the Russian bear’s shoulder and onto its back.

  1. Someone is getting nervous about Syria and the fact that the president Syrians elected, Assad, is still in power.

    My criminal, out of control government is wanting a ‘No Fly’ zone over Syria, but only no fly for Russian and Syrian craft.

    The USA has and continues to commit a massive number of war crimes against, since we have NOT been invited by the Syria, we have no UN mandate and the US Knesset hasn’t declared war against Syria, unless they want to use the “Authorization to Use Military Force” against Syria, enacted right after the Israeli masterminded 9/11 False Flag.

    If they want to use that argument, then Kerry or the unhinged Powers needs to explain why the US is supporting al Sham, which was al Nusra, which had been al Qaeda in Iraq.

    For the USA to give political cover and air support to the same thugs that we’ve been told 6 million times attacked the USA on 9/11 is obscene.

    If Russia folds and agrees to the No Fly Zone, all Hell will be unleashed against Syria.
