Kerry Blames Russia for US Crimes in Syria
by Stephen Lendman
Obama and neocons infesting his administration bear full responsibility for war on Syria, rogue state partners in high crimes sharing it.
ISIS and other terrorists wouldn’t be involved if America and complicit allies hadn’t deployed them there in the first place – all of the above and much more what media scoundrels never report.
John Kerry is a despicable character, an unindicted war criminal like his predecessors – notably Hillary Clinton. His spokesman admiral John Kirby said he spoke to Sergey Lavrov on Thursday morning by phone, Kirby saying:
“Secretary Kerry expressed grave concern over the deteriorating situation in Syria, particularly for continued‎ Russian and Syrian regime attacks on hospitals, the water supply network, and other civilian infrastructure in Aleppo.” 
“The Secretary made clear the United States and its partners hold Russia responsible for this situation, including the use of incendiary and bunker buster bombs in an urban environment, a drastic escalation that puts civilians at great risk.”
“The Secretary stressed that the burden remains on Russia to stop this assault and allow humanitarian access to Aleppo and other areas in need.” 
“He informed the Foreign Minister that the United States is making preparations to suspend US – Russia bilateral engagement on Syria – including on the establishment of the Joint Implementation Center – unless Russia takes immediate steps to end the assault on Aleppo and restore the cessation of hostilities.”
Fact: America and its rogue “coalition” partners bear full responsibility for terror-bombing hospitals, civilian infrastructure and other civilian targets – along with using ISIS and other terrorist groups to massacre Syrians, including committing gruesome atrocities. 
Russia and Syria scrupulously focus entirely on combating US-supported terrorists, wanting civilians protected, not terror-bombed or otherwise harmed.
Kerry’s duplicitous accusations reflect longstanding US hubris and arrogance. Saying Washington is preparing to suspend bilateral relations with Russia should be welcomed with cheers in Moscow. 
Sergey Lavrov would be relieved of having to deal with a gangster state bent on destroying his homeland, consistently breaching every agreement reached, seeking dominion over planet earth – aggressive wars strategy of choice, Russia on its target list.
I’m able to speak my mind freely, expressing views on any topic without regard for political correctness or any other constraint.
Diplomats operate by different standards and norms, careful not to offend counterparts – at least most often.
There’s a time and a place for everything. Kerry’s arrogance demands an appropriate slap-down.
How do you say go to hell in Russian – diplomatically, of course?
