    Every time that the stupid and cowardly Russians agree to a U.S.-pushed ceasefire when the Syrian army are winning on the ground, it is followed almost immediately by the jihadis INTENSIFYING their operations and starting to attack. This has become so predictable that it’s not even necessary to follow the news anymore. Nothing can be won like this.
