Aleppo at risk of a new siege

As Western governments still fail to find an agreement on Syria, the Syrian regime of Assad is again thinking of a new siege of Aleppo.

The Syrian Forces of Opposition are much concerned , few days after having succeeding  in the break of the siege. To sum up, Aleppo under siege have been a starving town , without humanitarian corridors; when open, these corridors were hijacked by Assad’s forces,and the trucks of food partially benefited to the regime, not the besieged population.

Now, two cities are of strategic importance: Homs, because it was the second city to revolt in 2011 , and Aleppo.

In the rest of the country, Russian planes bomb the civilians with napalm , and nobody is aware, nobody is shocked.It is as if Syria disappeared of the geopolitics; it reappears only with preoccupations about Islamic State: in the West, security measures are taken in schools and in public places, as everybody fear an attack, from Jihadists formed in Syria.

And Aleppo? And the use of napalm , as in the Vietnam War?

Syria: from a legitimate revolt against a dictatorship to a genocide; five years of inaction from our part; five years of complicity.
