Water Crisis in Syria, "We think it was worth it."
Water contamination and a water blockade have been occurring in Damascus, Syria which evidently involves the White Helmets, the Nobel Peace prize nominated, NATO sponsored, terrorist affiliated, propaganda "organization". If it involves the White Helmets, it also involves the U.S. and Britain.
"The blockade of water from Wadi Barada to 5 million people in Damascus is taking an interesting turn. The U.S. and UK financed White Helmet organization seems to be directly involved in it. This increases the suspicion that the illegal blockade of water to civilians in Damascus is part of a organized campaign under U.S. command. The campaign is designed to block utilities to government held areas as revenge for the liberation of east Aleppo."
As Moon of Alabama described it yesterday:
"After the eastern part of the city of Aleppo was liberated by Syrian government forces, the local rebels and inhabitants in the Barada river valley were willing to reconcile with the Syrian government. But the al-Qaeda Takfiris disagreed and took over. The area is since under full al-Qaeda control and thereby outside of the recent ceasefire agreement. On December 22 the water supply to Damascus was suddenly contaminated with diesel fuel and no longer consumable. A day later Syrian government forces started an operation to regain the area and to reconstitute the water supplies."
Now some "civil groups" have offered access to the water supply under the conditions of that the Syrian army halt it's operations, which isn't going to happen. One of those civil groups has been identified as the White Helmets.
"The U.S. and UK government created and paid White Helmets are “impartially”, “neutrally” and “for all Syrians” blocking the water supply to 5 million Syrians in Damascus. U.S. military and CIA officers run the “operations rooms” in Jordan and Turkey that direct the insurgency."
This is apparently part of a larger, coordinated strategy because the water supply was attacked in Aleppo and electricity and gas lines have been destroyed/cut in Damascus.
It follows a common tactic in war. Evil, immoral tactics that hurt innocent people, especially children. War tactics the United States government knows all too well.
Many know that the U.S. sanctions placed on Iraq in the 90's resulted in the deaths of at least half a million children. Most don't know how the sanctions caused those deaths.
"Confirmed by documents of the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), “the U.S. government intentionally used sanctions against Iraq to degrade the country’s water supply after the Gulf War. The United States knew the cost that civilian Iraqis, mostly children, would pay, and it went ahead anyway.”
The primary document, “Iraq Water Treatment Vulnerabilities,” is dated January 22, 1991. It spells out how sanctions will prevent Iraq from supplying clean water to its citizens.
Iraq depends on importing specialized equipment and some chemicals to purify its water supply, most of which is heavily mineralized and frequently brackish to saline,” the document states. “With no domestic sources of both water treatment replacement parts and some essential chemicals, Iraq will continue attempts to circumvent United Nations Sanctions to import these vital commodities. Failing to secure supplies will result in a shortage of pure drinking water for much of the population. This could lead to increased incidences, if not epidemics, of disease.
The document notes that the importation of chlorine “has been embargoed” by sanctions and food and medicine will be affected. That and other documents listed at the link confirm that the United States knew the sanctions would kill hundreds of thousands of children.
They all knew it:
At a House hearing on June 7, Representative Cynthia McKinney, Democrat of Georgia, referred to the document “Iraq Water Treatment Vulnerabilities” and said: “Attacking the Iraqi public drinking water supply flagrantly targets civilians and is a violation of the Geneva Convention and of the fundamental laws of civilized nations.”
I frequently call Obama, Kerry and Clinton war criminals for the war in Syria, among other actions, and that they're responsible for the deaths of thousands of children. By the time it's done it might be hundreds of thousands, just like under his Democratic party predecessor, War criminal/child killer Bill Clinton and his sidekick War criminal/child killer Madeleine Albright. The Democratic War Party continues to kill children.
