This comes as a serious blow to the image of the US, the outlet says, however Russia seems to be not too eager to “finish off” its ‘American partners”.
The clean-up of the eastern Aleppo will put an end to the US policy in the region, to the six years of the Obama administration’s activity and will indirectly hit the electoral capacity of Hillary Clinton, the newspaper says.
However, it further notes, it seems as if nobody wants to corner the superpower.
The opening of a corridor for the militants who would wish to leave Aleppo is definitely working for the saving of the US’ image.
If the US were not back pedaling with the list of terrorist organizations operating in Syria, it would have been all over by now. The majority of the groups operating within Fatah Halab are the former “clients” of the US.
In such a stalemate Washington is still unable to get rid of ideological clichés and look at its former allies without the rose-colored glasses.
Amid the above developments, the outlet says, nobody seems to pay any attention to the arrival of Russia’s Tu-214R remote reconnaissance aircraft (RF-64514) to its airbase in Hmeymim.
The aircraft, fitted with cutting-edge optical and electronic equipment and radar systems was already used in Syria in February-March, but then was returned back to Russia.
And now it is needed again. It only remains to be seen what for.
