The Syrian government pressed its assault on rebel-held areas of Aleppo Saturday ahead of a showdown at the United Nations between Western governments and its ally Russia.German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier warned that the mounting tensions between Washington and Moscow over the conflict had created a situation "more dangerous" than the Cold War.U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made clear his anger at the Syrian army's Russian-backed onslaught in the battleground second city, saying that its bombing of civilians could amount to a war crime.The U.N. Security Council is to vote on two rival resolutions on the fighting, one drafted by France calling for an end to air strikes and a second by Russia that calls for a ceasefire but makes no mention of halting the bombings.Moscow has said it will veto the French draft.If Russia blocks the draft, it will be its fifth veto of a U.N. resolution on Syria.
