DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:15 A.M.) – The Spokesperson for the U.S. State Department, John Kirby, blamed Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and his supporters for the ceasefire issues in Aleppo.

“The only thing that stands between where we are now and a permanent and enduring ceasefire in Syria is Bashar al-Assad and his supporters,” Kirby said.

Despite the large presence of jihadist rebels in east Aleppo, Kirby reluctantly blamed Jabhat Al-Nusra for obstructing humanitarian aid from reaching the besieged neighborhoods.

“We recognize Al-Nusra as a spoiler, we have concerns about co-mingling, I’ve talked about this ad nauseam,” Kirby added.

He himself doesn’t take this seriously. But he’s well paid to talk bullshit to the daily press conference, we’d probably all take his job anyday if it was possible, LOL!

Let’s say if that you were Russian, you’d be offered Maria Zakharova’s job. It’s exactly the same thing, you know. Although the DoS conferences are a little tougher exercise as you don’t just read a communiqué but have questions from several hard edged journalists to answer.

Kirby wants immediate unconditional surrender to the US sponsored mercenaries as any resistance prolongs the war. In this context the US honors only submission anything less causes ceasefire issues.

Kirby doesn’t wants anything, he simply doesn’t gives a f**k about what happens : he’s the spokesperson for the DoS, in other terms, he’s here to relay what Kerry thinks and to add some dollars to his admiral retirement pension especially as he’s doing exactly the same thing he formerly did for the Pentagon with much less hassle as he hasn’t to be also the head of the 2700 manpower DoD PR staff. I bet he’s better payed doing this for the DoS than he was when in charge of the full DoD PR staff + doing the same spokesperson… Read more »

State Dept. really sucks : while their job is diplomacy, they’re not diplomatic at all, worst of all, they do anything to fuel the problems while the militaries do the contrary. US system has gone bonkers!
