New independent media channel Russian Insider and RussiaWorks.ru have teamed up to release intense drone footage of the latest country to be laid to waste by war. Filmed during a recent Syrian Army offensive on rebel held positions in the suburbs of Damascus the footage captures the overwhelming destruction in its rawest form, an apocalypse in motion.
The aerial footage was recorder during fierce clashes between the Russian backed Syrian Army and the American backed Islamic State soldiers. As buildings are pounded into dust, and dust is pounded into even finer dust it becomes no clearer why this is necessary.
If there is any question of whether and how an entire civilization can disappear here is the evidence happening before our very eyes.
