No more pretenses for Russia and Syria as their cease-fire agreement collapses and violence increases. The United States now made it clear that there is no more agreement while Russia blames America for everything that has gone wrong. Will the next world war ensue?
The United States and Russia are going all out on each other as the truce in Syria collapses. The United States just made it clear that no agreement seemed to have taken place as incidences of violence increased in the region.
Furthermore, a US official admittedly said that the Obama administration has been using the Russian rhetoric, blaming the Kremlin for almost everything.
“We can’t go out to the world and say we have an agreement when we don’t,” Yahoo quoted Secretary of State John Kerry following his meeting with top diplomats from Russia and more than a dozen European and Middle Eastern countries.
Relations between US and Russia seemed to have reached a new low after Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov went their separate ways following the truce negotiation two weeks prior. Violence has erupted once more and the two superpowers failed to reach a common ground.
“We can’t be the only ones trying to hold this door open,” Kerry told the press. “Russia and the regime must do their part or this will have no chance.”
Syria Continues to Suffer
In another report from RT, US Air Force Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski said that the Obama administration understands what it is doing with the Russian war rhetoric. However, the official also said the US government has no clue of what they are doing on the ground. The situation in Syria has gotten worse after an air attack left 18 out of 31 humanitarian aid convoy into pieces last Monday. Following this, UN decided to suspend all Syrian aid deliveries.
“We have very diverse information and it is still quite difficult to get a full picture of the situation. Very tragically, once again we have volunteers and staff from this year in the Red Crescent who has been attacked. We only have confirmation that one of them died on Monday,” Benoit Matsha-Carpentier of the International Red Cross explained the situation.
