airstrikes

2

Yesterday we had a nightmare called Israeli-bombing-is-back-again. 10 aggressive Israeli airstrikes hit several areas of besieged Gaza strip just during dawn, for a minute we thought that’s it, we’re back to war again as we still remember how did the previous war start. I hope there will be no wars soon, we had enough already.
However, we’re in a ceasefire now aren’t we?! Who’s breaking it now?!
Let’s wait for the Israelis bullshit and see how they’ll justify their crimes.
Btw, did the Western media mention this recent assault? I’m sure they did not. They are Israel allies, they can’t say anything against it.
Turning a blind eye to Gaza is not surprising by such a media.

You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests. This is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. It’s really 19th century behavior in the 21st century.

John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State, about Russia’s response to the fascist coup in Ukraine, on NBC’s Meet the Press, March 2, 2014

JOKE OF THE WEEK from the mouthpiece of the the U.S. administration that invaded Libya, threatens to bomb Syria, regularly massacres civilians with drones, proclaims its right to assassinate anyone anywhere anytime, is re-colonizing Africa, continues to occupy Afghanistan, etc.

Thanks to Tanya Gilbert

I wonder if Kerry’s speechwriters realize that they just wrote his epitaph…

NATO airstrikes rock Tripoli during the night

Witnesses claim Gaddafi’s compound was the target: Some have cried foul over NATO’s increased bombings against Gaddafi territories, saying that the mandate for civilian protection, but the U.N. resolution authorizing the no-fly zone uses a rather vague phrase in defining the mission. It states: “…to take all necessary measures to protect civilians under threat of attack in the country, including Benghazi, while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory.” A pro-military force type might read that and say, “well, the civilians are in danger as long as Gaddafi is in power.” We’d likely agree with that. It is a bigger and bloodier mission than expected, however, and that may have consequences in public opinion and diplomacy. source

New York City, July 9, 2014

As of last night, Israel has murdered at least 41 Palestinians, including 13 children, injured more than 100 people and deliberately targeted at least 60 homes. The bombing of the open-air prison that is Gaza continues unabated with the full support, blessing and funding of the US government. Entire families have been massacred, children’s legs blown off, full blocks leveled–all to the sickening glee of the Zionist state.

Yesterday, thousands took to the streets of NYC to stand with the people of Palestine.

There is no middle ground here. You are on the side of the oppressor, or you stand with the oppressed.

NATO airstrikes rattle Gaddafi’s home/military compound

NATO unleashes attacks in Tripoli: The strikes early Monday morning came with reports from NATO officials that nobody had been badly harmed, though Libyan state TV later claimed 45 civilian casualties. The odds of civilian death in this regard aren’t negligible, as Gaddafi has hosted throngs of still-loyal citizens at his sprawling residence to act as human shields, fully hoping that the risk of killing them would deter NATO from launching attacks like this one — be warned that there is a small amount of graphic imagery in the video. source

Palestinians confront Israeli soldiers during a demonstration against Israeli military action in Hamas, near the West Bank town of Nablus, Monday, July 14, 2014. Israel began its campaign against militants in the Hamas-controlled Gaza last Tuesday, saying it was responding to heavy rocket fire from the densely populated territory. The military says it has launched more than 1,300 airstrikes since then, while Palestinian militants have launched nearly 1,000 rockets at Israel.

I the sweet Syrian baby
Lying in the safety of my hospital bed
I am targeted as if I am a terrorist
America has your ego been fed?

I the innocent Syrian baby
Lying between the destructed rubble
My innocent life taken abruptedly away
America and UN what the hell can you say?

I the angelic Syrian baby
Six feet under I now lay
Such inhumanity is disgraceful
But in paradise I shall play

US coalition airstrikes destroyed a children’s hospital “Aisha” in Bukamal Syria. This is exactly who the US and her allies are targeting in Syria and Iraq. Don’t be fooled. This babies was the true target!!
