Russia has correctly criticized the US as using a verbal smokescreen to conceal why the ceasefire is failing. The point is that Washington has negligible control over its declared moderate rebels. In fact, there is no control because in practice there is no distinction between the myriad illegally armed insurgents.
Like the ceasefire called earlier this year in February, this latest one is breaking down because all the militants continue to breach any cessation. As Lt General Vladimir Savchenko, chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria, points out, the US-backed opposition is using the ceasefire simply as an opportunity to rearm and regroup.
And Washington's policy is impotent about altering that. The CIA and Washington's allies in Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey armed the anti-government insurgents, including the known terror groups. The regime-change conspirators created a veritable Frankenstein monster over which they now have little control even to the point of getting it to at least appear to be complying with a ceasefire for tactical reasons.
The latest ceasefire is floundering like the previous attempt because Washington's assertions about moderate rebels dissociating from terror groups is total and utter humbug.
Risibly, as one could have predicted, John Kerry's bombastic appeal last weekend for US-backed rebels to separate from the extremists so that American and Russian forces could then get on with the task of eliminating the terrorists has been subsequently shown to be the consummate delusion that it is.
Washington and its allies are being caught out spectacularly in their lies over the Syrian conflict. The stone-cold truth is that they have been sponsoring terrorist proxies for the criminal purpose of regime change.
So conspicuous and damning is Washington's nefarious role in Syria's conflict -- which has resulted in 400,000 dead and millions turned into desperate refugees -- that this crime has to be covered up at all costs. But covering it up is becoming futile because of the increasing glaring reality.
Syria's ceasefire is flawed because Washington, the supposed co-architect of the truce along with Moscow, is not motivated by finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict. The conflict is all about regime change and deploying terrorist agents to achieve that. That is why the ceasefire is failing -- yet again.
The unbearable truth about Washington and its criminal gang of state-sponsors of terrorism has to be concealed from public view. And that is why Washington and the dutiful Western media lie machine are cranking up the explanation for the ceasefire unravelling as being due to the fault of the Syrian regime and its Russian ally for not delivering on humanitarian commitments.
This American smokescreen has been pumped out for nearly six years in Syria. It is really galling to hear the likes of John Kerry and Barack Obama talk about human suffering and the need for humanitarian ceasefires.
The suffering and violence in Syria will stop when Washington is seen for the criminal regime that it is. That day is coming. The American smokescreen is dissipating with each passing day because of its absurd contradictions.
And the terrorists -- state sponsors and proxies alike -- are finally being exposed.
