(Reuters) – Russia and the United States are close to starting joint military action against militants in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the RIA news agency on Monday cited Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu as saying.

“We are now in a very active phase of negotiations with our American colleagues,” Shoigu was cited as saying.

“We are moving step by step closer to a plan – and I’m only talking about Aleppo here – that would really allow us to start fighting together to bring peace so that people can return to their homes in this troubled land.”

This time it will be different. The U.S. is not lying to Russia. They will not continue to lie about Russian air attacks or ‘accidentally’ bomb the Syrian army or their allies. (/sarc)

Neo-jihad is the WORST kind of terrorism, it has its roots both in old school jihad that already killed more than half a billion humans in history, maybe near a billion and bringed slavery to many nations, destroying local cultures and they merged with nazis in 1941…

@Rizwan Khan : as successful as during Poitiers’ battle (AKA ma’arakat Balâṭ ash-Shuhadâ) in 732AD 🙂 Anyway, Mujahideen aren’t even able to fight without kuffar technology, this is laughable… TOW missiles are 50 year old technology, in case you don’t know and if you think muricans don’t know how to make the weapons they build useless… Same for the russians or chineses…

What? The US hanging their mercenaries high and dry? ISIS will abandon in droves. The US will never be trusted again even if the money is good.

This probably means that “the rebels” shall surrender and get a safe passage to their respective countries. Important is that Alep shall be liberated by Asad forces.

Mhhh, more likely to all get killed : it’s not Lavrov or Kerry talking but Shoigu and he said “Russia says close to starting joint military action”… US govt/DoS made HUGE mistakes in the syrian affairs… Pentagon is gonna clean the mess and well… Dead men tell no tales… I don’t think anybody wants shithadists back in their respective countries, in fact, if most of these countries let them go to Syria, it was in the hope to get rid of them definitively… I wouldn’t even be surprised if some EU countries were secretly paying for russian bombs or kerosene… Read more »

Well, it was high time for USA to understand that they were misleaded by some of their mid-east so-called friends double-agendas (and bribes?).
