Russia and Iran Get Closer as US Bombs Tabqa


By Gordon Duff with Dr. Bassam Barakat and Nahed al Husaini, VT Damascus

The vital Tabqa Dam, scene of recent fighting, southwest of Raqqah, has been damaged by recent US attacks in support of Kurdish forces fighting ISIS.  This dam not only controls the flow of the Euphrates River, a danger to tens of thousands of lives, but provides hydroelectric power to the region as well, a region that stretches over 300 miles.

Now a US bombing attack on the facility has killed the facility manager and seriously injured a number of technicians and engineers assessing previous American bomb damage.

Below is a video released by US backed Kurdish forces:

  1. Yes, if nothing else the US is predictable. Exxon/Mobile now has the tiller(erson) and “everything is on the table “. Well it’s easy to predict as Syria remains in real trouble. sure.the.NGOs inside Iran are stirring the.pot, and getting i ready as their next. All is going as planned. 5 ME countries, 3 down 2 to go.. If Russia falls too, wow! It moves the schedule up by at least 30 years. Tel.Avi will pay huge Xmas bonus come this December. Paid in counterfiet script with a 1099 in the mail. Brilliant stuff.

  2. C’mon you guys…can’t you hit a decent target properly? You were supposed to take out the dam entirely. Just pretend it’s a hospital and you’ll hit it . Now we’re going to have to nuke it. jebus, it’s getting so we can’t kill enough of these ragheads fast enough to satisfy our israeli bosses. So we gotta go in there and do it again, this time make sure you drop a few on the surrounding civilian villages to make sure. Make Bibi happy
    and he won’t threaten to nuke Amurca again.and
    America is damned. It’s flag a meaningless symbol, a piece of cloth that now, stands for nothing but war, death and destruction around the world. A militarized police state that has nearly stripped away the rights guaranteed to us through natural law; an out of control federal government that acts like the school yard bully and a massive spy machine that monitors everyone.
    Be ready for precrime convictions, middle of the night stop and talk raids that end in immediate execution and more TSA child groping.
    Have a nice day.
    or else, we’ll send in a cop to beat the crap out of you.
