ALEPPO REBS BEGIN TO BLUB
Syrian rebels facing an onslaught by regime troops in Aleppo last night appealed to the outside world to come to their aid, saying they had little more than willpower with which to defend themselves.[source : Syria: Aleppo rebels plead for help as army threatens onslaught, The Daily Telegraph, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/9433735/Syria-Aleppo-rebels-plead-for-help-as-army-threatens-onslaught.html, 28/07/2012]
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Haj Morea, their leader in the city, commented on fears expressed by Western leaders, including William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, that the regime in Syria was about to perpetrate another massacre.
Both the USA and the UK are expressing their fears of a "massacre"
"This is the concern: that we will see a massacre in Aleppo, and that's what the regime appears to be lining up for," said a spokesman for the US State Department.
Mr Hague said: "This utterly unacceptable escalation of the conflict could lead to a devastating loss of civilian life."
It could well be a massacre in Aleppo, but a massacre of armed Sunni terrorist types, including al Qaeda. Hague is using the definition of "civilian" very, very loosely. If there is a massacre of civilians it will be by the rebs themselves, or the civilians will be used as human shields by the rebs.
I would suggest to the Syrian al Qaeda rebs that there is a very, very simple solution to getting themselves out of the graves they have dug for themselves; surrender.
