No running water for almost three weeks, due to contamination by ‘rebels’ is making the lives of over 5 million people in Damascus a nightmare. Mainstream media concern for Syrians has disappeared since the evacuation of terrorists and their supporters from Aleppo but the two events are closely connected. Because the siege of East Aleppo is over, the extremists can stop the water supply to Damascus without fear of retribution from the Syrian government. The fact that so many people were allowed unrestricted movement to Idlib hasn’t softened the ‘rebels’ attitude and unless the water situation is brought back under control soon, the terrorist clearance of East Aleppo will be a hollow victory.
Bellingcat’s ridiculous ‘investigation’ by Nick Waters into the water crisis tries to blame the government but numerous comments to the article, including an extensive rebuttal by PavewayIV, leave the hapless Waters floundering. His profile on the Bellingcat website claims he’s an ‘open source analyst’. His CV is further embellished by the fact that he’s an ex British military officer. So neither Waters nor Eliot Higgins, Bellingcat’s proprietor, have any detailed knowledge of the area or can claim to be experts in water related issues. I assume open source analysts are people that are able to read Twitter and Facebook posts, while having the ability to look at photographs. This image must have escaped Waters’ attention:
The ‘moderate rebel’ looks clearly pleased that damage has been done to the water system at Wadi Barada, yet the clowns at Bellingcat are implying that it was a Syrian government air strike that caused the damage.
This is an excerpt from the article on Bellingcat:
Evidence of Bombing on the 23rd December
From the available media, and rebel claims, it appears that there was regime bombing on the 23rd of December, in and around the location of the spring structure.
Water’s conveniently brushes over government accusations of diesel contamination, despite a rebel boasting of doing just that.
Higgins and Waters, in common with the other fools at Bellingcat have no credentials to support their claim of their investigative skills. Due to his anti-Russian and anti-Assad history, accusations of being involved in British Intelligence surrounds Higgins and with his ex-military friend Waters, who would argue.
Hayan gas processing plant attack.
I just did a Google search for this: ISIS attack gas processing plant Hayan
Try it yourself, nothing relevant comes up at the top. So I tried to do a search with duckduckgo search engine and three out of the four leading items were about the ISIS attack on Hayan. If the mainstream media aren’t reporting it, I suppose search engines will struggle.
I didn’t think my experiment would produce such telling results. The MSM have ignored the gas terminal attack but it is crucial in providing energy to many Syrians.
These attacks are a familiar tactic and the psychopathic nature of Obama indicates he’s very capable of reminding his terrorist friends that legitimate governments will falter if basic human needs aren’t fulfilled. Hence the realisation that energy and water shortages are a very useful weapon. It’s difficult to ascertain the extent of the damage to the Hayan gas terminal because of it being ignored by major news media, however knowledgeable Twitter users seem to think it’s a disaster of huge proportions. Let’s hope they are wrong.
