Comment on Weapons paid for by US are Missing in Afghanistan: Did they go to the Taliban? by My Comment

July 29th, 2014 No comments

“Weapons paid for by the US have gone missing.”
US money in Afghanistan has “gone missing.”
US allies in Afghanistan have “gone missing.”
Afghan support for the US mission has also “gone missing.”
There seems to be a trend here!

A reminder of the colonial, imperialist, racist attitudes that were so common then, that have caused so much suffering, and that continue to do so.

Comment on Unlike Iraq, Iran, Libya, N. Korea, Israel has Impunity from Defying UNSC (Gaza Ceasefire) by Don Bacon

July 29th, 2014 No comments

Not to distract from Israel’s behavior, but also in Ukraine another US ally gets away with murder. UNSC Resolution S/RES/2166(2014):

“The Security Council…Demands that all military activities, including by armed groups, be immediately ceased in the immediate area surrounding the crash site to allow for security and safety of the international investigation.”

Australian and Dutch investigators have been unable to get through to the MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine for the third day running as fighting continues in the rebel-held region.

Ukrainian troops “had entered into” the towns of Shakhtarsk and Torez and “battles were continuing for the complete liberation” of the towns of Pervomaysk and Snizhne, the press office for the Ukraine military operation against the insurgents said.

FGM Un-Islamic

Muslim Council of Britain says female genital mutilation is ‘un-Islamic’

Group issues explicit guidance for the first time, condemning practice which it says is no longer linked to religious teaching

by Alexandra Topping, The Guardian, June 23

The Muslim Council of Britain, the country’s largest Muslim organisation, has condemned the practice of female genital mutilation as “un-Islamic” and told its members that FGM risks bringing their religion into disrepute.

The influential MCB has for the first time issued explicit guidance, which criticises the practice and says it is “no longer linked to the teaching of Islam”. It added that one of the “basic principles” of Islam was that believers should not harm themselves or others.

The organisation will send flyers to each of the 500 mosques that form its membership, which will also be distributed in community centres in a drive to eradicate a practice that affects 125 million women and girls worldwide and can lead to psychological torment, complications during childbirth, problems with fertility, and death.

Comment on Israel’s Gaza Campaign Endangers US Security: Why Obama & Kerry are Furious by Johnboy

July 29th, 2014 No comments

No, it wouldn’t require that.

All it would require is for Obama to stand up alongside some US soldiers in uniform, and then state that Israel’s actions are putting those brave boys in danger, and he won’t stand for that.

Followed by a media blitz of a carefully selected cross-section of Our Boys In Uniform pointing out that they are put in danger of blow-back every time Israel goes Whammer-Jammer! on poor defenceless civilians.

Get THAT campaign going and let’s see how much traction the Israeli Lobby can manage.

After all, in the face of THAT campaign there wouldn’t be a single member of Congress willing to stand up and say “F**k our soldiers, Israel is far more important that the lives of OUR men in uniform!”

Comment on Israel’s Gaza Campaign Endangers US Security: Why Obama & Kerry are Furious by spyguy

The “key human” theory has been WELL DOCUMENTED to be completely false.

Every humans is replaceable.

Sure the replacement will have different skills and may not be as effective in a particular area of expertise, but they will do OK any way.

Note that if the “key human” theory was valid, the US would fall apart after we replaced the POTUS after a 4 or 8 year period of absolute rule. Notice that the US continues to muddle on.

This is why, unless Israel kills all 1.5 million humans in Gaza, they will continue to have resistance. In addition, the more Gazans they kill the worse the resistance will become because Israel can not kill its way to peace and security.
