    Clinton accuses Russia of delivering attack helicopters to Syrian regime | World news | guardian.co.uk

    About 10% of Syrians live in Aleppo. More than 2 Million people.
    It would cause apart from the bloodshed a more serious refugee flow.

    Aleppo is a huge city. If street fighting starts there, it could run for years s no invader could ever hope to take it street by street.

    It's also a really beautiful town with some wonderful old buildings and one of the greatest markets in the world, so I hope both sides try and preseve the heritage.

    A pretty stupid and irresponsible statement by Clinton.

    America: Stay Out Of Syria.

    Russia AND China will kick our asses there either in person or by proxy, is that what you want?

    Our Soldiers have served up to 7 tours in the Middle East. Isn't that enough?
