Israel a fiefdom of the most violent people ever known

Not content with a Jewish State in Palestine. Most Zionists have ignored that every Arab country would accept an Israel within the 1967 borders, and a shared Jerusalem. Instead Zionists have become a war apparatus with their eyes on the whole world. This video concentrates on the devastation in Iraq, the financing by Wall Street Banksters, and Israel’s hand in it all.

Airpower Summary for July 16, 2007

4/23/2009 – SOUTHWEST ASIA (AFNS) — Coalition airpower integrated with coalition ground forces in Iraq and the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan during operations April 22, according to Combined Air and Space Operations Center officials here.

In Afghanistan, an Air Force B-1B Lancer destroyed a large compound used as an anti-Afghan forces staging base. The strike employed a variety of guided bomb unit munitions and was conducted in support of an Afghan and coalition clearing operation taking place in the area.

Near Shurakian, Navy F/A-18C Hornets conducted several strafing runs, targeting anti-Afghan personnel gathering weapons and rocket-propelled grenade launchers from a weapons cache. The strikes resulted in the destruction of the enemy force.

An Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II strafed an anti-Afghan motorcycle with its cannons. The aircraft carried out the strafing run after enemy personnel were spotted leaving a mortar site they had used to shell a coalition base.

In the vicinity of Sheykhabad, A-10s flew shows of force over an Afghan National Army convoy after the convoy started taking enemy fire. The aircraft, which also expended flares during their pass, dispersed enemy personnel and ended the attack on the convoy.

In the Garmser area, a coalition aircraft performed a show of force over a compound where enemy forces gathered. Following the aircraft’s maneuver, the aircraft conducted tactical surveillance as the enemy personnel ran from the area.

Joint terminal attack controllers assigned to coalition units verified the success of these missions.

In total, 75 close-air-support missions were flown in support of the ISAF and Afghan security forces, reconstruction activities and route patrols.

Twenty Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft flew missions as part of operations in Afghanistan. In addition, two Navy aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

In Iraq, coalition aircraft flew 29 close-air-support missions for Operation Iraqi Freedom. These missions integrated and synchronized with coalition ground forces, protected key infrastructure, provided overwatch for reconstruction activities, and helped to deter and disrupt hostile activities.

Thirty Air Force and Navy ISR aircraft flew missions as part of operations in Iraq. In addition, three coalition and Air Force aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft and C-17 Globemaster IIIs provided intra-theater heavy airlift, helping to sustain operations throughout Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Horn of Africa.

Approximately 150 airlift sorties were flown; 420 tons of cargo was delivered; and about 3,000 passengers were transported.

Iraq the Genocide, also Monsanto’s rule

with one comment

Video about Monsanto having the legal right to force Iraqis to use Monsanto GM seeds.

Here is a separate post about Monsanto from the other day:

Video: The world according to Monsanto

Iraqi farmers by law have to use Monsanto seeds

The USA is now trying to pass a similar law

Monsanto’s Bt Cotton Kills the Soil as Well as Farmers

.

Six years into the occupation…

– 72 months of destruction

– $607 Billions spent on the war

– 2 Million Barrels of oil being sold per day

– 2 Million Displaced Iraqis inside of Iraq

– 3 Million Iraqis forced to leave the country

– 2615 professors, scientists, and doctors killed in cold blood

– 338 dead journalists

– $13 Billion misplaced by the current Iraqi government

– $400 Billion required to rebuild the Iraqi infrastructure

– 3 hours average of electricity daily

– 24 car bombs per month

– 7 major mafias running the country

– 4260 Americans dead

– 10,000 cases of cholera per year

– 50 of my friends dead

– 22 of my relatives dead

– 15 abductions of close relatives and people I know and love

– At least 1.3 million Iraqis dead since 2003.

.

So the numbers speak for themselves. Six. Six months is what it took for most Iraqis to realize no good could come of this war and occupation. Six years is what it has taken the rest of the world. Six years, six million Iraqis displaced inside and outside of Iraq- well over a million Iraqis dead or dying inside of the country.

As a scientist, as a researcher- it is a disaster that will never be sufficiently documented with numbers or words. As a researcher, the numbers are so astounding that we go back and recalculate to make sure they are real. As an Iraqi, it is enraging. The numbers and statistics fill me with a rage and shame that make my heart throb and my blood boil. It’s a rage towards all who are silent and uncaring, and a shame at the little we all are doing.

Was Iraq for oil? No.

Was Iraq for oil?

No.

In fact Iraqi oil was embargoed for ten years (and smuggling proliferated). It permitted Saddam to be defiant, much as it permits the Iranians and Russians, so it is not the oil the imperialists are after, it is the need to deny any independence through income to others.

It is dubious if the cost of the Iraq war can ever be repaid, and the oil concessions have been going to Chinese and other countries, yet America remains – for Israel.

Here is a typical comment (interestingly not heard very often in Britain):

On an article:

OBAMA CAVES TO ISRAEL LOBBY [Freeman]

No one can ever say anything about Israel or they are condemned as a monster and a pariah in league with the Nazis. The Israelis are dictating our foreign policy and getting us into all kinds of wars and are protected by our politicians who know damned well if they dare speak out their careers are over. This latest example is another in a long line. Enough is enough! –source–

DU = Depleted Uranium used as a coating for weapons by (at least) USA NATO Israel

March 4, 2009 by niqnaq

In 2006, Japanese professor Dr. K. Yagasaki, by using the known amount of uranium used in the Hiroshima bomb — about the size of a two-litre milk container — calculated that a ton of DU used on the battlefield results in the equivalent of 100 Hiroshima bombs worth of radiation released into the atmosphere. So, when it was reported that 2,000 tons of DU were dropped on Iraq from 2003 to 2006, we need to understand that what was released in the Iraqi atmosphere, and then spread worldwide, was the equivalent of 200,000 Hiroshima bombs. The total amount of DU the US has used since 1991 is approximately 4,600 tons (1,000 in the first Gulf War, 800 in Kosovo, 800 in Afghanistan and a further 2,000 tons in the second Iraq war.) This amounts to approximately 460,000 Hiroshima bombs, ten times the amount of radiation released into the atmosphere from all previous nuclear testing worldwide. And, it’s important to note this calculation was three years ago. Since that time, we’ve had three more years of non-stop DU bombing. – Sheila Samples, ICH
