MESOP Syria Audio Analysis: Aleppo – Airstrikes, Russia’s Propaganda & Chemical Weapons

12 August 2016 – MESOP  – On Thursday, I appeared on the Pat Kenny Show on Dublin’s NewsTalk for a long, wide-ranging discussion of the situation in Aleppo.

Beginning with the call of doctors for a halt to Russian-regime airstrikes, we considered the possibility of a ceasefire — close to non-existent amid Russia’s incessant propaganda and the aerial attacks, including the use of chlorine.
