Diplomats attempting to negotiate an end to Syria’s bloody civil war said Thursday that they had agreed to try and implement a temporary “cessation of hostilities” in a week’s time as Russia’s prime minister warned that the use of foreign ground troops in the conflict could result in world war.
Those “diplomats” include Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the guy who sits in the US State Department’s chair John Kerry, and an unidentified UN person.
Never mind that the Daesh and al Nusra don’t agree, or that Russia won’t stop its bombing campaign.
Don’t worry, either, about that Russian threat of world war should anyone come in on the ground and thwart Russian ambitions in Syria.
Only Kerry could think this is a good idea. And, of course, Lavrov.
