Vietnamese children flee from their homes in the South Vietnamese village of Trang Bang after The United States Government taxpayer funded, manufactured, financed, and supplied Vietnamese planes accidentally dropped United States Government taxpayer funded, manufactured, financed, and supplied napalm bombs on the village, located 26 miles outside of Saigon.
From The Journal Times;
Here in Wisconsin, guns and hunting are a large part of our traditions and sporting heritage. I grew up shooting guns at my family’s farm. We made our own shotgun shells in my grandpa’s basement. My family, like many families with these traditions, continues to support legislation that improves safety.
I treasure this tradition, and I know what responsible gun ownership looks like. But as responsible gun owners, we also have to recognize that something has gone horribly wrong in the culture around us.
When I first heard about the shooting at Parkland High School, I felt numb. Seventeen brave, promising, caring people are gone from our world. It’s hard to conceive the magnitude of the loss.
In the aftermath, I was unable to reconcile with the fact that once again, our country has allowed young people to die because we are unwilling to take on the gun manufacturing lobby.
So according to Greta Neubauer, D-Racine, who represents the 66th District in the Wisconsin Assembly, young people died because of the Gun Lobby. So the People must be disarmed to make America safe for Democracy?
At this current time, The United States is waging at a minimum, 7 undeclared wars, inciting others, and supplying weapons of mass destruction to others.
So 17 died at Parkland HS in America – where was your voice when over 100 innocent Yemenis who were attending a funeral were killed by a US Ally using American Taxpayer funded & supplied jet aircraft and bombs?
U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition found responsible for Yemen funeral attack that killed more than 100
CAIRO — A Saudi Arabia-led investigation into an airstrike last week on a Yemeni funeral has concluded that Saudi-led coalition jets “wrongly” bombed the ceremony, killing more than 100 people, after receiving faulty information and not following proper procedures.
“JIAT has found that because of noncompliance with Coalition rules of engagement and procedures, and the issuing of incorrect information a Coalition aircraft wrongly targeted the location, resulting in civilian deaths and injuries,” the statement said.
Mohammed Atbukhaiti, a senior Houthi official, welcomed the findings but said they showed how the coalition is “disorganized and reckless” and treats “the lives of the Yemeni people in a careless and disrespectful manner.” He urged the United Nations and the international community to independently investigate other human rights violations.
“This has not been the first incident where the Sandi-led coalition has targeted civil gatherings, killing and injuring large numbers of civilians,” he said.
Last Saturday’s attack on the Grand Hall, one of the most prominent venues in the Yemeni capital, was one of the deadliest single assaults of the 20-month civil war that has upended the Middle East’s poorest nation. At least three airstrikes hit crowds of mourners gathered inside the complex for a funeral for the father of a senior official in the Houthi administration.
The seven one sided wars the U.S is currently waging, and other inconsistencies
There are many who aren’t aware of the status of the United State’s foreign politics. Saying that American politics are flawed is an understatement, especially when considering the new President elect, who won the election by alienating all those who have suffered institutionalized discrimination and reinforced white supremacy. But I’m sure you as a reader, are sick and tired of reading about the same flawed domestic policies in your country. Instead, here’s a glimpse at American foreign policy; the United States is currently waging war against seven, yes you read right, SEVEN countries.
The United States has been bombing Iraq for on and off for about 25 years. The reason varies from year to year, but ultimately the war started because of an arms conflict where the United states and the United Kingdom believed that Iraq allegedly had weapons of mass destruction. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the war was started on a hunch and assumptions rather than fact.The Bush administration believed that Sadam and his government posed a threat to the United States because he maybe had WMD. After over half a million Iraqi lives were lost, in 2011 the United States troops left Iraq, only to come back in 2014 because of the threat of insurgency. Now, they’re still bombing it because the United States has gathered intelligence that proves that Isis is located in Iraq.
The United States is waging a very complicated war again Syria, since there are at least four coalitions fighting each other. The four coalitions are the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army, The Islamic Front, The Syrian Islamic Liberation Front and Independent groups such as ISIS. Because there are so many groups and factions fighting each other, there is often confusion on who’s on whose side. The United States goal is to knock our ISIS and Bachar Al Assad. So, while the United States is bombing Syria and most recently the last children’s hospital in Alleppo, Syria is being ravaged by it’s civil war. It has now become an immense humanitarian disaster as half of teh country’s 22 million people have either been killed or displaced. On that note, there has been a little less than half a million confirmed deaths in Syria.
AFGHANISTAN & PAKISTAN
The United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001 in response to the tragic 9/11 attacks. They have been fighting them for fifteen years, making this war the longest war in American history. They targeted the terrorist groups the Taliban and AlQaeda, both splinter groups of the Mujaheddin. The interesting factoid here is that Al Qaeda and its former leader Osama Bin-Laden had ties to the CIA and the American government during the Soviet War in Afghanistan. The CIA allegedly armed and trained the mujaheddin to fight and win against the Soviet Union during the cold war. The Taliban was formed by the Pakistani Intellegence Agency (ISI), but was allegedly funded by the United States. The United States was believed to have provided $3 billion to build this Islamic group by providing them with ammunition during the Cold war. After the Soviet war ended, the United States lost track of the ammunition they provided the Taliban, and thus was taken aback when millions worth in weapons that they had provided were allegedly being used against them. In 2004, they started bombing the northern border of Pakistan along the Afghan border because it was believed that Taliban and Al Qaeda troops hide out there.
The United States war on Yemen is incredibly complex. The U.S is conducting drone strikes to target Al Qaeda camps but is also currently supporting Saudi Arabia’s massive attack on the Houthis, a group of Yemeni rebels. Yemen is currently a monstrous humanitarian disaster as ” 80% of the Yemeni population is in desperate need for humanitarian aid to meet even it’s most basic needs.” There is even evidence that Saudi Arabians, who are backed by the U.S, are deliberately targeting civilians. The UN confirms about 10,000 civilian deaths in the Yemen since the drone strikes started in 2015, killing almost 13 civilians a day. According to the Guardian, more than one third of all Saudi led air raids on Yemen have hit civilian sites such as school building, hospital markets, mosques and economic infrastructure.
More on that, click on the following links:
On October 8th, 2016, a U.S backed, Saudi led airstrike on a funeral took place, killing 140 people and wounding 525 people.
According to the Associated Press, the aftermath of the strike turned the funeral location into a lake of blood and strewn unidentifiable body parts.
Libya is also dealing with political unrest, which first started at the hands of Muamar Gaddafi but now is because of civil insurgence and U.S bombing. In 2011, the United States bombed Libya to in order to get rid of Gaddafi. The consequence of his assassination was that the country descended into chaos and ISIS attempted to establish a stronghold over the Libyan government. The Americans also continued to bomb Libya because they didn’t necessarily like the person they replaced Gaddafi with.
In March of 2016, an American drone strike killed 150 people in Somalia allegedly targeting the terrorist group Al Shabbab. The Obama Administration put out a statement that claimed that everyone of these 150 people was part of Al Shabbab. No one but the American government has independently confirmed that particular statement. The only information we have of the 150 deaths were from the government that killed them.
The question remains; who does the United States consider as an enemy combatant on the global War on Terror. According to the New York Times, the administration considers all military age males in a strike zone combatants… unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent. This is very convenient as it is scary to realize that any one male over the age of 18 standing near a location the U.S has decided to bomb because of suspicious terrorist activity is automatically an enemy of the U.S. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Financially, since the beginning of the war on terror in 2001, the United States has spent around $4 trillion and about 1.3 million Americans have died in combat zones all around the world. To this day, there have been 4 million and it is even speculated that that number is nearer to 5 million deaths in the Middle East, a byproduct of the War on Terror.
One last thing:
ZERO of these one sided wars have been approved by Congress, and is thus more evidence of the rift in America’s system of checks and balances.
Confused? Here’s a simple breakdown of what’s going on in the United States’ foreign affairs. Educate yourself.
United States drones have killed way more innocent people than the alleged lone shooter at Parkland High School. What do you have to say about that – Greta? Since as a Taxpayer – you are an accomplice! SO why do you, Greta Neubauer, D-Racine, who represents the 66th District in the Wisconsin Assembly, remain silent and allow taxpayer dollars to fund undeclared wars in foreign countries which kill innocent civilians and destroy property?
Further – the Government trained and supplied Police Officer who was assigned to Parkland High School to act as a Guard refused to exercise his duties in accordance with his training and instead acted to protect his own life, mislead others, and then demand that taxpayers fund his retirement!
The Broward Coward –
Just released CCTV footage from the February 14 Parkland, FL school shooting shows Broward County Sheriff’s deputy Scot Peterson drive up to the high school building as a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members – only to hop off, unholster his gun, and run behind a concrete wall for cover.
“The video speaks for itself. His actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Scott Israel on Feb. 21. After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination,” the department said in a brief statement with the video’s release.
Peterson, 54, dubbed the “Broward coward,” was blasted by Sheriff Scott Israel a week after the shooting, telling reporters that Peterson should have “went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer,” adding that the deputy’s failure to act left him “devastated. Sick to my stomach. There are no words.”
In response, Petersen issued a statement through his attorney denying any wrongdoing – and said that he thought the shots were being fired from outside the school.
Internal radio dispatches released by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office Thursday reveal Peterson immediately focused on Building 12 and radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.”
What’s more – Peterson warned his fellow officer to stay away – despite wounded students and staff inside who required assistance. Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) policy requires deputies to engage an active shooter and eliminate the threat.
“Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away,” shouted a panicked Peterson as people screamed in the background.
Hillary Clinton is Evil! (REMIX)
“We came, we saw, he died!”
Government is a Death Cult – and Greta Neubauer is a Proud Member of that Death Cult:
Clearly, Greta Neubauer, D-Racine, who represents the 66th District in the Wisconsin Assembly – is Dazed & Confused as to who the instigator of evil is, and kow-tows to her Masters. Hopefully she enjoys her membership in the Death Cult of the American Empire.
“We came, we saw, he died!”
To choose between the lessor of two evils is still to choose evil.
