Someone caused $2 Million in Fire Damage to Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Equipment . Contractors may pull out as Insurance and bad PR costs soar.
( from Anti Media, with thanks, photos added ) Jasper County, IA — For the second time in recent months, someone or some group has set fire to construction equipment at the Dakota Access Pipeline site in Reasnor, Iowa. The incident, which caused damage of an estimated $2 million in equipment, is being treated as arson. It’s unclear who set the fire, and there are currently no suspects identified.

Despite the lack of evidence or suspects, Reasnor Assistant Fire Chief Don Steenhoek laid the blame on Dakota Access Pipeline protesters. “[I]t’s pretty senseless,” Steenhoek told local news outlet KCCI. “They’re not getting back at the pipeline. They’re just hurting the guys trying to make a living and put it in.” Continue reading Sabotage! $2 million in Diggers Torched at Dakota Pipeline
AL BAB (KDN) – Turkish jets carried out 26 air strikes on US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, in northern Syria, killing 10 civilians, Kurdish sources on the ground said on October 20.
SDF: 19 people were killed as well as 39 wounded by “the barbaric Turkish bombing”
Local sources said that the Turkish terror army conducted airstrikes against Kurdish-led forces in support of ISIS jihadists who recently lost a dozen villages to US-backed forces in Aleppo province. Turkish army claimed it killed around 200 SDF fighters but a Syrian Kurdish leader told AP that those who were killed in the airstrikes were 10 civilians.
Turkish terror state desperately sought to join the liberation campaign of Mosul but it was excluded by the US-led International Coalition.
The Turkish air strikes could only be carried out with permission of Russia, under the latest cynical deal which includes a new gas pìpeline to Europe. They would also need the green light from the US forces (‘coalition’) who even more cynically overlook Erdogan’s mega purges and anti Kurdish fascism, perhaps in the hope of ‘wooing him back from Russia’.

What is the SDF?… a fast expanding multi ethnic, multi religion, anti sexist, non authoritarian federation
by wikipedia... Since its founding last year dozens of rebel militias of all ethnic and religious hues have flocked to join the SDF (see long list and details below), as they can retain their identities and participate equally, embracing the new ideology of ‘Democratic Confederalism’ of the Rojava revolution. By May 2016 the SDF had up to 80,000 fighters and the percentage of Kurds was only about 60% and falling (wikipedia). Continue reading Rojava Revolution gets support: Mass Desertions to join SDF
ACCORDING to the latest available figures from the Central Statistics Office a total of 487 people died as a result of that thing Ireland doesn’t talk about in 2013.
The deaths continue on from a trend started in 2007 which has seen the numbers of people dying from that thing we don’t talk about increase.
While a number of factors have been attributed to the rise, concerns have been raised about the prevalence of that thing among the youth of Ireland.
“It’s troubling, and I want with every fibre in my body for something to be done about it, but look if it’s alright, I’d prefer you didn’t bring it up at all,” spokesperson for the Irish Commission On Things We Don’t Talk About Suzanne O’Gorran told WWN.
The government also stressed its reluctance to talk about the thing, but is said to be relieved the statistics have come close to levelling off.
“That is a relief as we can now look into how to continue to do nothing about it, if we get this right, we could even cut funding a bit,” a government spokesperson shared with WWN. The government confirmed it was available to talk about the recovery, road safety campaigns and sugar tax.
Many members of the public have admitted to being aware of someone they know doing that thing, but owing to the troubling nature of talking openly about something in Ireland, they remain reluctant to speak.
