Kerry announces US-Russia deal on Syrian ceasefire


#1

(CNN)The US and Russia announced a plan Friday to bring about a ceasefire in Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry said.

“Today we are announcing an arrangement that we think has the capability of sticking but it’s dependent on people’s choices,” Kerry said in Geneva.

Appearing alongside Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Kerry said the pact calls for the Syrian government and the opposition to respect a nationwide ceasefire take effect at sundown on Monday.

He added that the accord will also prevent the air forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from flying combat missions anywhere that the opposition is present, calling this provision the “bedrock of the agreement,” labeling Assad’s air force the “main driver of civilian casualties” and migrant flows.

If Kerry negotiated the deal, then you can bet it will be bad for us. He is part of the bunch who stupidly sent billions of dollars to the main instigator of terrorism on this earth - the Iranians.

I can somewhat agree with this. However, I think between Iran and Saudi Arabia, those two places are where they feed Hamas and ISIS with weapon and cash flow. The amount of Oil in the region is sure to keep terrorism active in that region for decades if not centuries. That is unless something changes.

US and Iran were doing just fine until the CIA and the British decided to depose the popular and democratically elected leader Mossadegh.in 1953.
