Security analyst Charles Shoebridge told RT:

"The Syrian government is responding in a way that any government would do if faced with a situation of urban warfare."

On July 28, Voice of Russia (VOA) headlined "Syria ahead of decisive battle," saying:

Syria sent reinforcements to Aleppo. Washington is silent about insurgent violence. Other Western and regional countries don't condemn them. America is the lead sponsor of regional terrorism.

Insurgents want Aleppo transformed into Syria's Benghazi. City residents largely support Assad. They say "militants have been instilling terror taking people hostage and using them as human shields."

Turkey is Washington's lead attack dog. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has internal opposition. Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemel Kilicdaroglu calls Turkey "a country in trouble."

"We do not want our people to pay the price for Western interests. We do not want Turkey to be dragged into the swamp....(W)e do not want war."

"We were supposed to be the (regional) game-maker." (Instead) we ended up being played. We tried to warn them on the consequences of sectarian fighting in Syria. We were expelled for doing so....Turkey does not deserve to be a proxy country."

Along with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Gulf states, Libya, and Jordan, Turkey is that and more. Regional states may get more than they bargained for.
