michael: Putin and Assad only care about cooperation if it helps them take Aleppo. So threatening to stop cooperating unless they back off Aleppo is worse than a waste of time.. That statement shows them we don't see their game, so we can't yet be calling them on it. Very simple-- Mr. Assad... Your planes are bombing towns and hospitals with cluster bombs, phosphorus, chlorine (war crimes) ... Starting in one hour- Any plane you put in the air, we will shoot down. Any cluster bombs or Chlorine shells you fire- we will knock out the source of weapons the use of is a war crime. We won't shoot down Russian jets, but they are not now or likely later to bomb Aleppo. That will back Russia and Assad off. We could also supply limited amounts of anti-aircraft batteries and stingers- to allies we trust specifically to defend hospital sites.
