RT: The 'war crimes' resolution on Aleppo comes during the extended humanitarian pause supported by Russia. Why do you think about the timing?
JJ: I think what they are trying to do is to take advantage of the fact that the Russians and the Syrians have voluntarily undertaken this pause. And they have problems with this because it does allow the terrorist forces there to regroup, to continue their shelling of West Aleppo, and so forth. But for their own reasons, and I think because they do care about the humanitarian concerns of the civilians in Aleppo, they have voluntarily agreed to this pause. What I think the resolution is attempting to do though, is to say "we demand," and the word is "demand" in the resolution, you make this pause permanent under the threat of war crimes charges, if you resume the offensive against the terrorists.
