Fighter jets bomb Aleppo

July 24th, 2012 · 19 Comments · BREAKING NEWS

Syrian fighter jets have bombed Aleppo, according to the BBC’s Ian Pannell.

Separately, ITV News reporter Bill Neely has caught on camera warplanes bombing Douma, in Damascus.

This is possibly the first time jets have been used in this conflict (although this is disputed, with some saying they were used in Rastan).

Using jets stinks of desperation, and shows just how hard the regime is having to fight to keep hold of Syria’s two biggest cities, Aleppo and Damascus.

It is a desperate move, because it is so flagrant. When the army sends in plain-clothed thugs to massacre women and children in their own homes, it can blame the opposition. When regular soldiers kill civilians in cold blood, it can accuse rebels of donning army uniforms. But when Syrian jets are in the skies, it has no-one to blame but itself. I wonder how Russia Today will report this.

It is also desperate, because it risks losing pilots and planes. It’s hard for a soldier on the battlefield to go AWOL. It’s a different story when you are at the controls of a plane that can fly at 1,000MPH.

The Syrian regime is bringing out the big guns. For Bashar, it really has got that bad.

    Of course fighter jets may not be also enough….
    It is recommended to use Sam rockets also to destroy the bunch of Islamist Jihadist rebels hiding in civilian buildings an city streets. This is not a desperate move; but a sign that the state is here and will not allow any impingement in the state authority and prevail order.

    This is a real war…everybody has to understand that

    The article writer should be more polite when talking about a president…He should have said president Assad and not solely Bashar.

    Dis he play golf with him to call him this way or didn’t he learned politeness at home or at university.

    When you see such comment; one reckons clearly the size of the international plot.

    At last, whatever all these say..Syria will remain a strong country with its faithful army and loyal citizens, who did not sold their soul to the devil as some did.

    The french proverb says:
    Rira bien qui rira le dernier…
    Just wait and see and you will be amazed

    The slandering had reached a point of a flagrant scandal. Bernard LEVY the zionnist declares today that he has plans for Syria as he did for Libya; while still some think that the syrian government is attacking its own citizens…Are these taking the whole world for dummies , crazy or ignorant.
    Anyway, time will show who is right and who is the plotter

    Fighting in Syria is a battle between two elements of moral behavior, both are repressive. Only progressive mindsets can create a new order and restore peace. Millions of Ecstasy pills dropped on Syrian cities will cause new behavior patterns. Sharia Law will not be wanted by Syrians high on Meth-Viagra. Sunni, Shi`ite, Alawite, and Christians can hug and kiss. The Ecstasy pill will be displayed on the nation’s flag and saluted by fun loving patriots.
