FROM THE HEART OF SYRIA, ON RUSSIA’S CHRISTMAS WISH … AND OURS

On Russia’s Christmas wish that Aleppo, by Christmas, know peace; you haven’t spent any time here lately Vlad, have you? cc: @PutinRF_Eng  @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st

Vladimir, Russia’s Christmas wish that Aleppo be by then sounds so sterile as to seem disconnectedly, disingenuous. cc: @PutinRF_Eng @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st

President Putin: The poor choice of words of Russia’s Christmas might reflect the naïvete of any Russian citizen who smells not, Aleppo’s stench. cc: @PutinRF_Eng @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st 

Or perhaps, Sir, Russia’s Christmas wish is the product of the cynical thinking of the career diplomat, remote, from carnage. cc: @PutinRF_Eng @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st

Or perhaps Russia really hopes Aleppo’ situation’ can be ‘resolved’ by year’s end or maybe a career diplomat was left, with little to say. cc: @PutinRF_Eng @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st

Alas, for we trembling wretches, huddled in fear in what’s left of Aleppo, wishes and words matter little. cc: @PutinRF_Eng @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st

What matters is that the barrel bombs and bullets that terrorize us are borne of state action. Only state action can save us. cc: @PutinRF_Eng @CNN @UN http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAkWy07?ocid=st
