The Forty Martyrs Armenian Cathedral in Aleppo was re-consecrated on Saturday, four years after the jihadist rebels ransacked the building.Let us remember that the Syrian Arab Republic's recovery of Aleppo City after ferocious and prolonged combat made possible the re-construction of this ancient Armenian cathedral.
His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, visited the historic church after its reconstruction meant it could be opened again after Jabhat Al-Nusra razed parts of the compound back in April 2015. - Al-Masdar News
The Syrian Arab Army's front against al-Nusra just west of Aleppo City protects this cathedral and all the good people of Aleppo while re-construction continues.
Let us remember that al-Nusra is the Syrian branch of al-Qaida. They destroyed as much of this cathedral as they could manage while they held that part of the city. The al-Nusra were John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman's good friends. The three senators often visited them as well as the other FSA unicorns who were under al-Nusra's control. According to these three fools anything was better than the Syrian government. Now, who would have given then that idea?
And then there is the matter of the Borgist and neocon insistence that the US and our SDF allies defeated IS in Syria all by our selves. The fierce fighting done by the Russians and the SAA/allies is simply ignored by the swampies in DC.
Well, pilgrims, Reuters says that Bolton torpedoed the Hanoi meeting by persuading Trump to stiffen his terms at the last minute. Bolton is also leading the US toward a major geopolitical defeat in a failed attempt to remove Maduro in Venezuela. How long is Trump going to put up with this fool and his sidekick "ole first in his class" at State?
Perhaps a change in faces might result in different policy.
