Al-Qaeda Cut Leaves 5 Million Thirsty In Damascus - Western Media Unconcerned

There is a humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Syria and the "western" media ignore it. On December 22 al-Qaeda aligned Takfiris in the Wadi Barada valley shut down the main water supply for the Syrian capital Damascus. Since then the city and some 5-6 million living in and around it have to survive on emergency water distributions by the Syrian government. That is barely enough for people to drink - no washing, no showers and no water dependent production is possible. Article originally published at Moon of Alabama.

Who is genuine about fighting terrorism in Syria - and who are the terrorists?

This article was previously published (24/8/15) on Russia Insider.

  • But the US and its Coalition against ISIS?
  • What are their interests?
  • Do they care for Syrians and their army at all?

When George W Bush first declared the 'War on Terror' it seemed like just another of his 'mis-speaks' – surely he must have meant 'War on Terrorism'? But we didn't really bother because we knew it was neither, but just a label for wars of convenience on someone else's Terra.

about fighting terrorism in Syria when it
actually refuses to oppose Al Qaeda 1

Misreporting: Photographs depict [government] war crimes in Syria: prosecutor by David Mark on ABC's PM program - never retracted, even though claims have been shown to be fraudulent.
After years of openly arming al-Qaeda extremists, firstly in Libya in its war to overthrow the government of the late Colonel Muammar Qaddaffi and, secondly, in Syria against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, the Obama administration and its mainstream media mouthpieces have since turned this reality on its head and are claiming that the Syrian government is arming al-Qaeda.
With her usual rigour, the Syrian Girl compares these claims with known facts and logic in her YouTube broadcast.
