People in Aleppo are being massacred, are we sure the fight is against ISIS?


Syria's army said it had taken 98 percent of the territory once held by opposition fighters in east Aleppo, however couldn't there be a better way to solve this?


The UN estimates that nearly 500,000 people have been killed since the Syrian conflict began in March 2011, and more than half the population has been displaced.

Every time we thought it couldn’t get worse, it did. And now, again, the horror is plumbing new depths. Families are running out of food, of water, of medicine. There are no more operational hospitals and not a single ambulance to rescue the ever-growing number of wounded and sick. In this city of death, even the clowns are dying. The man who tried to block out the horror by entertaining the children, distracting them for a moment, was killed. Was this the death of hope?

This could ever have been possible without a bloodless outcome. There was no possible solution to involve communication with Assad. Airdrops into besieged areas, where rebels horde and the civilians starve would be an awful way to extend hostilities.

Aleppo is being liberated from terrorists. I am quite glad that they'll be under a fairly secular government and I hope that Assad retakes the country from the hands of foreign backed head choppers. Exporting democracy has failed and we have created a power vacuum whereby one strong man is replaced by an even worse Islamist power.

But help me understand that if removing the regimes across the Middle East in recent years hasn't worked out well. Why would removing Assad be any different? Also Why is the Aleppo situation any different from that in Mosul, or any other city that required liberating from terrorists rather than rebels?

By funding these Islamists the UK and USA have prolonged this conflict and deepened its impact. Obviously the aim was to topple Assad but to what end? Did they think that a Government could be formed from amongst the dozen of so rebel factions who are not only currently fighting Assad but each other? If Assad falls then civil war will rage indefinitely. If these rebels were the moderates they claimed to be and not vicious jihadists then they wouldn't currently be using the people of Aleppo as human shields. If the UK and USA cut support to them then it would go a long way to cutting short this war.

Why are these rebels heroes, the government forces are committing all the atrocities and nowhere is there any coverage of the rejoicing in the streets as the army takes over. I am as appalled as anyone by the Assad regime, but faced with an armed insurrection and civil war, what do you think that any government might do? And if the rebel heroes want to save civilians and themselves, why don't they just withdraw from an irrecoverable situation and leave the city?

I am shocked at how many articles and reports are given in such a depressive tone as if they wanted the so called rebels and jihadists to win! The amount of fake unverified tweets being aired as the absolute truth of the horrors the big bad "regime" are carrying out. There's been footage of civilians celebrating in the streets now that they are free from the rebels, but this gets spun around with the media saying these people have to act happy or they will be disappeared. Not everyone has been willing to blindly swallow what's been spoon fed to us
