When are you going to prove there are no leprechauns in my basement?
IDF claimed there are tunnels under the cemetery they desecrated, a data center in the tunnels under the UNWRA HQ, a command center underneath Al Shifa. If they made a positive claim, they need to provide proof.
Yeah, well, the whataboutism aimed at the US seemed to be what started the off topic tangent, so I did that on porpoise . I don’t think there is a thread, I suppose one could be started and this could be moved over
The US funds and blindly supports Israel due to it being a supposed US aircraft carrier in a vital region, and in an election year, it’s probably also supposed to cynically pay off at the polling station. The US helping undesirable countries or individuals just because the perceived US benefit outweighs anything else is not new, from the US supporting Apartheid South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Chiang Kai Shek, Ferdinand Marcos and Augusto Pinochet etc. All citizens from the countries above were killed while the US turned a blind eye, or made empty public gestures denouncing them, all while US interests were supposedly advanced. It’s not that hard to see where Israel got the similar idea from, and the fact that Israel is basically protected by the U.S., Israeli actions are facing little REAL backlash, although pretty sure a backlash is coming for both the U.S. and Israel. Israel would love to pull the US into a wider and more public war in the Middle East for reasons mostly benefitting Israel, but it’s a smart and calculated bet by Israel that the US will ultimately follow their playbook.
Did the Japanese and German populations deserve to be collateral damage? Do the Israelis and Palestinians? Do the Sudanese?
I would say not, but on the other hand this is what happens often in war. As sad as things are for the Palestinians most Japanese (and I think Taiwanese too) see it an war issue. Maybe only in China people will side with Palestinians in East Asia I guess.
Durning this holiday, outside full of people in Southern Taiwan its nice to have peace
Nice day KHH waterfront with duck in the back
There was an important number not mentioned when the author was setting up the success, but apparently not important enough to that author to factor into the analysis, and whose exclusion torpedoes the whole thing IMO.
Suppose I’ll have to read it now and see if I can guess. No clues yet please.
I’m curious to see what you come up with
the number and nature of civilian casualties doesnt rate a mention, though thats a bit strategic too.
Its just another example of
Again with the “Everyone loves a winner, and thats all that matters” schmear.
