The US voices outrage at the Syrian Army’s success in clearing Syria’s largest city of Aleppo of anti-Damascus armed groups. US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Sunday that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has lost all legitimacy by attacking the armed groups in the city.
This is while Syrian security forces are clearing more areas across the country of militants.
The United States has said it is enlarging its assistance to Syria’s fractured opposition. Also, according to Reuters, the White House will soon authorize greater covert assistance to the armed gangs. Washington has already thrown its support behind Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey for arming the Syrian opposition.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Professor Michel Chossudovsky, director of Centre for Research on Globalization, to further discuss the issue.
