From Bill Moyers’ daily report:


“A complete meltdown of humanity” –> That’s how the UN has described the situation in Aleppo as the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, including support from Russia and Iran, push deeper into the city. They anticipate winning control within a day or two. The advancing pro-regime troops have shot dozens of civilians and burned others alive, a UN human rights office spokesperson tells NBC News, and observers worry that thousands of civilians crammed into a rebel-held, one-square-mile section of the city could die as well. “Real massacres” are taking place, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told The Guardian.


This is Vladimir Putin’s latest foreign policy triumph. Donald Trump’s best friend.
