The US voices outrage at the Syrian Army’s success in clearing Syria’s largest city of Aleppo of anti-Damascus armed groups.
US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Sunday that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has lost all legitimacy by attacking the armed groups in the city.
“If they continue this kind of tragic attack on their own people in Aleppo, I think it ultimately will be a nail in Assad’s own coffin,” Panetta told reporters.
Comment: In a well known tradition of his people, Panetta is trying to outperform the best illusionists. He really believes that we will buy it. His warmongering and hypocrisy may become a nail in Panetta’s own coffin, somewhere not too far from Nuremberg. Today’s crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity will sooner or later be judged. Panetta is on the record.
