UN: US, Russia Fueling 'Military Escalation' in Syria

• AntiWar.com

As the US and Russia keep announcing ultimately fruitless ceasefire efforts, the UN's latest report is faulting both of them, along with other major powers involved in Syria, for continuing to fuel military escalation of the conflict through their actions on the ground.

The report detailed war crimes committed by numerous factions in the war, little to no accountability, and a seemingly interminable effort to make matters worse on the ground by seemingly everyone, in the hopes they could parlay to some benefit for their faction.

Russia's escalation is a straightforward one, backing the expansion of Syrian military offensives in the days leading up to ceasefires they supposedly desperately want. At the same time, the US is arming so many groups these days that half the time they're on both sides of major battles.
