    Syrian War Updates

    other than few skirmishes, war was thought to be over.

    history :

    discontended civilians supposedly formed rebel groups to overthrow Assad's government. After being unable to do so, civil war broke out. US, Uk and Turkey - supported rebel groups fought iranian - supported Assad's government. Russia intervened and with a major turn of events allowed Assad to regain much of Aleppo. Russia provides aid and material for Syrian citizens including meals, stationary and to the children's delight toys.

    Aleppo was, like Syria, independent and a vibrant booming city free from external influence that for several dynasties was the center of the world - adjoining people of various cultures to a common ground.

    - Lavrov: Russia waiting for US to provide details on proposed safe zones in Syria

    - https://www.rt.com/news/378293-russi...ia-safe-zones/

    Moscow is waiting for Washington to lay out the details of how it intends to establish safe zones in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, adding that the proposal must also be agreed upon by the Syrian government.
    The US side informed us that this concept (safe zones) is currently in development, the top diplomat said, adding that Moscow will wait for further details from Washington.
    Meanwhile president Trump of the USA says that the Gulf is going to supposedly pay for these safe zones:

    As for funding the project, Trump said were going to have the Gulf States pay for those safe zones. Theyve got nothing, but money.

    Didn't that start in the first place because Assad was in power and people were revolting against it?

    It started because the West wanted to expand the democracy protests that started out in Tunisia. They thought whatever succeeded in Tunisia would happen in other nearby countries, but that didn't happen and led to a much worse situation.

    The alternatives to Assad are terrible, and the Syrians are focused on surviving rather than who leads them. The focus should be to eradicate Islamic State completely and then try to solve the Syrian crisis.

    Though the talks in Geneva weren't so promising; a ceasefire that includes Aleppo has been created:

    US, Russia agree to include Aleppo in Syrian ceasefire deal

    Moscow and Washington have agreed that the ceasefire in Syria should include the city of Aleppo, which has recently been the scene of the county’s heaviest fighting.

    The ceasefire in Syria doesn’t apply to terrorist organizations, including Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al-Nusra Front.

    The French and German foreign ministers praised the ceasefire in Aleppo, saying it would be critical to renewing peace talks on ending Syria’s civil war.

    “I believe everyone knows and can conclude that there could be no return to the political talks in Geneva if a ceasefire in and around Aleppo is not observed,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Wednesday prior to the official announcement of the agreement.

    Meanwhile, it appears that the western presence in Syria is against Assad's government and not against ISIS:

    The US and the EU cannot bring peace to the Mideast because instead of real action against Islamic State terrorists they prefer to talk about their desire to displace Syrian President Assad, the head of the Chechen Republic has told reporters.

    “Today there are no more doubts that the main target of the West is Assad and not the ‘Iblis State’ terrorist organization,” Ramzan Kadyrov told reporters on Tuesday, using wording suggested by Russian Muslim scholars to describe the group that calls itself Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

    “Since the start of the armed support of the Syrian opposition by the United States and Europe and the beginning of air strikes on ISIS, the peace process has not advanced even one millimeter. On the contrary, Western forces cause tens of thousands of young men from all over the world to come to Syria and Iraq,” the Chechen leader added.

    He especially emphasized the fact that it is common knowledge already that Islamic State finances its operations by selling oil extracted on captured territories, yet no one has tried to stop this trade.
