NATO head Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday that Russia’s intense air strikes in Syria, mostly targeting rebel forces, are “undermining” efforts to find a political solution to the war.

“What we have seen is that the intense Russian air strikes mainly targeting opposition groups in Syria are undermining the efforts to find a political solution to the conflict,” Stoltenberg said as he arrived for talks in Amsterdam with EU defense ministers.

Stoltenberg made no mention that US-led coalition airstrikes were affect the political solution to the war, nor that terrorist groups like Al-Nusra and ISIS have been on in the retreat in Aleppo, Latakia, Homs, Dara’a and Damascus provinces.

When these so called rebels were headchopping innocent civilians and bombing schools and hospitals nobody heard American shill Stoltenberg say anything about undermining the peace process. Stoltenberg: go suck a lemon.

This Stolenberg or whatever his caricature name is, reminds me of a Nazi war criminal, or a villain from a Sci-Fi! Is that coincidental?

Ahh, bombing undermines peace efforts, doesn’t matter whose bombing. Umm, but this is complicated – lots of people in America make money bombing 3rd world countries. The money is provided by the American taxpayer.

Amazing but I’m not surprised at the double talk.
