But hey, who has been paying attention other then myself ? Most others have chosen to excuse the crimes, go along with the 5 eyes lying media, spread nonsense instead of facts, ignoring who these thugs really are and what has really been going on. Choosing to call them "syrian kurds" when reality is the vast majority of them are Turkish Kurds. All of them associated with PKK.
Digression: MoA, Zero Hedge, 21st Century Wire, SOTT, Saker and others all going along with the 5 eyes media lie - Hence my long time disillusionment with most alt media. You all decide who you want to read, but, I long ago made up my mind to discern only for myself.
Inform and think for myself. Listened to an interview yesterday at Our Interesting Times, with Ryan Dawson, and he was speaking realistically about the Kurdish militias- I smiled. Finally.
I tell you all if I had to read another claim of democratic, secular and equality regarding the murdering Kurdish militias, PKK/YPG... I’d have wanted to vomit- Never mind the "most effective fighters against ISIS" spin. As if the two aren't simply US/Israel proxies ?!! Thankfully more and more people are catching on to the reality of the situation. Hoping I played some small part in raising awareness?
BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have obstructed water to over 1 million residents of Aleppo City, today, a Syrian government source reported.
The Syrian Democratic Forces reportedly blocked the water from the Euphrates Dam that feeds into the Khafsa Pumps, halting the supply to people of Aleppo City.
While no reason was given for SDF’s actions, it is likely due to the recent tiff between their forces and the Syrian Arab Army in the southwestern countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
As I explained previously Syria wants their Dams back!
"Syria want's their Dams back and pardon the pun, they have dam good reasons for wanting their water/electricity supply and rich farmland back!"In that same post it was reported that the kurdish terrorists said, plainly, there was going to be hell to pay for Syria having the nerve to want to take their dam and territory back!
Kurdish leader "We confirm that if the regime forces continue their attacks on our sites in Raqqa governorate, it will oblige us to use our right to legitimate defense and retaliate.”Cutting off the water to Aleppo is the retaliation!
It seems to me I was the ONLY lone gal. amidst the cheerleading 5 eyes media, that mentioned the taking of the dam was going to lead to this.
Go back to this post from March
****Bonus for the interlopers (Kurd/Israel/America)- Taking the dam will enable the control of Aleppo city- Being very nearly entirely reliant on pipelines from the reservoir.
Ring, ring, ring goes the bell!
The PKK terrorist group's Syria affiliate, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) captured the three of the largest dams in Syria, where the terrorist organization already has invaded 23 percent of the country. (With plans to take 30% percent for their own) The Tishrin, Tabqa and Baath dams, all built on the Euprathes River, have the capacity to provide the majority of the entire country's water and electricity supply.
According to information gathered from the Assad regime's Irrigation Ministry, the terrorist organization was able to reach the regions of critical importance in terms of water and electricity resources, as well as agricultural fields, thanks to these dams. The dams have the capacity to supply 70 percent of the country's water requirements.
A total 60 percent of the agricultural fields in Syria are also under the domain of the PYD.
The Tishrin dam, which was taken from Daesh in 2015, has storage capacity measuring 40 meters long and provides irrigation to Manbij and Kobani.
However, the Tabqa dam, captured recently last month, has a wide energy and irrigation infrastructure with its electricity production and storage basin that measures 60 meters long. It is the largest water reserve in Syria and has the capacity to irrigate all fields from Manbij and Kobani to the Iraqi border.
Baath is the latest dam captured one among them and has the capacity to produce energy up to 75 megawatts (MWs) for a year.
The Tishrin dam can also produce electricity - to some extent - for the surrounding villages and towns. Tabqa, on the other hand, cannot produce electricity anymore due to damages incurred during conflicts between Daesh and the PYD as well as U.S. bombardments. Local sources, however, inform that the dam which was used for irrigation, has now been taken under the control of the terrorist organization in order to produce electricity. Lastly, the Baath dam is used for the irrigation of surrounding agricultural fields.
