WHAT DID YOU SCREAM INTO YOUR TELEPHONE?!

"why is a puck called a puck? because dirty little bastard was taken."
Full of Hell at Mac’s Bar in Lansing, February 26th.
Why are you acting like Israel needs a legitimate reason to target civilians?
Are you aware of the 1996 Qana massacre?
Literally the same situation, but in Lebanon. Refugees flooded to the UN compound to take shelter from Israeli bombing. The compound was bombed.
Have you heard of the 2006 Qana massacre?
A three story building hosting 28 people was bombed in the same fashion. All 28 died. 16 of them children. This was in the same place.
So of course, what did Israel say? First, like all IDF responses to war crimes, they denied that they had anything to do with the explosion. Then when it was proven that it was the IAF, they claimed that Hezbollah was using the Lebanese as a human shields and firing rockets.
Human rights watch reported:
"Similarly, none of the dozens of international journalists, rescue workers and international observers who visited Qana on July 30 and 31 reported seeing any evidence of Hezbollah military presence in or around the home. Rescue workers recovered no bodies of apparent Hezbollah fighters from inside or near the building."
In response to the same accusations hurled at Hamas during “cast lead”, Amnesty International reported:
”contrary to repeated allegations by Israeli officials of the use of ‘human shields,’ Amnesty International found no evidence that Hamas or other Palestinian fighters directed the movement of civilians to shield military objectives from attacks. It found no evidence that Hamas or other armed groups forced residents to stay in or around buildings used by fighters, nor that fighters prevented residents from leaving buildings or areas which had been commandeered by militants.”
I find it kind of sad that in 2014 people still take the word of the Army of a country who needs to hire people to spread its propaganda.
What Americans don’t seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You’re nothing more than a serf or a slave.
In this way, the police state with all of its trappings—from surveillance cameras, militarized police, SWAT team raids, truancy and zero tolerance policies, asset forfeiture laws, privatized prisons and red light cameras to Sting Ray guns, fusion centers, drones, black boxes, hollow-point bullets, detention centers, speed traps and abundance of laws criminalizing otherwise legitimate conduct—is little more than a front for a high-dollar covert operation aimed at laundering as much money as possible through government agencies and into the bank accounts of corporations.
The rationalizations for the American police state are many. There’s the so-called threat of terrorism, the ongoing Drug War, the influx of [undocumented] immigrants, the threat of civil unrest in the face of economic collapse, etc. However, these rationalizations are merely excuses for the growth of a government behemoth, one which works hand in hand with corporations to profit from a society kept under lockdown and in fear at all times.

I hate my life, I’m such a mess, I wanna die, I’m so depressed.”
