Dunford again! From the World Socialist Web Internet web site.
Regarding the "warning" as seems to be the stimuli for the Russian Civil Defense drill that was the topic of the previous blog entry.
That rising violence as described refers to the saturation bombing of Aleppo? This I believe to be so!
"Top US general warns Syrian 'no-fly' zone means war with Russia"
"The enforcement of a 'no-fly' zone in Syria would mean a US war with both Syria and Russia, the top US uniformed commander told the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday".
"Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spelled out the grave implications of the policy advocated by both predominant sections within the Republican Party as well as Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton amid rising violence in Syria and increasing pressure by Washington on the Russian government to unilaterally agree to grounding its own aircraft as well as those of the Syrian government."
"Secretary of State John Kerry has repeatedly demanded that Russia adhere to what would essentially be a one-sided 'no-fly' zone under conditions in which US warplanes would continue carrying out airstrikes."
When the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs speaks in such a candid manner, we must all listen!
President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Secretary Clinton all BEWARE, you sail in dangerous waters!
