Bad Moon Rising Part 96 - War Is Peace

ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO, Israel and Hamas went to war, and there’s NO END IN SIGHT.

The killing by Hamas of more than 1,200 people in Israel, and retaliatory Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip that have killed thousands, have moved the conflict into uncharted territory.

[T]he starting point for many people is the United Nations’ vote in 1947 to partition land in the British mandate of Palestine into two states - one Jewish, one Arab following the destruction of much of European Jewry in the Holocaust.

Pretty much the whole world is against Israel’s genocide of the Palestinians - but not the warmongers that lead and rule my country.

The people that run the U.S. are posturing for something really big on the world stage.

IF IT WEREN’T FOR US, the Russian/Ukraine war would probably be over.  We’re messing with CHINA over Taiwan and computer chips. And now, were backing up Israel in their show show of horrible brutality of genocide against the Palestinian people.  And since we’re talking about the Holy Land - God.

The United Nations stepped in as expected, but HASN’T BEEN MUCH HELP:

Russia and China vetoed a US-drafted resolution that called for “humanitarian pauses” and Israel’s right to defend itself. A second draft resolution sponsored by Russia, which called for a humanitarian ceasefire, failed to garner enough votes to pass. The United States was expected to veto the resolution had it garnered enough votes to put it on the path to approval.

On January 10, in FORBES

Tuesday, defense officials told CNN that U.S. and U.K. Navy destroyers shot down a total of 24 Houthi missiles and drones launched from Yemen. The bill will be hefty.

A barrage of missiles and drones was fired at shipping targets in the southern Red Sea by Houthi rebels who claim to support Hamas and the Palestinian cause in Gaza. U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) told Reuters that there were no injuries or damage reported and added that this was the 26th Houthi attack on commercial shipping lanes in the Red Sea since Nov, 1

.

With enough firepower to flatten more than the middle east, are TWO CARRIER GROUPS of ours.

Are they there to keep the peace?

TIME:

As the U.S. leads a multilateral combat force into the Red Sea to protect international shipping lanes, I propose instead that it should act decisively to resolve the growing regional conflict at its root, instead of deepening its involvement in the quagmire of that conflicts symptoms. To do so, the U.S. should lead a multilateral peace-keeping force, with regional Arab and international allies, to physically intervene in Gaza and the West Bank and end hostilities within a political framework which will resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict. While this may sound far-fetched, it is the only realistic solution to a long-standing and intractable problem, and it would be in U.S. interests.

The U.S. has always been Israel’s strongest ally. This intervention should be viewed as exercising that support to its fullest, by decisively implementing a realistic, long-term strategy to ensure Israels security, instead of short-term reactionism that perpetuates the outbursts of violence. Only the U.S. has the leverage and relationships to convince Israel of this.

In his book 1984, Orwell wrote the three slogans of “The Party”

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

I’d be afraid to learn how many people actually believe those words today.
