Pentagon: Civilian casualties
in Gaza ´too high´

Reuters, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/31/2014 2:13:31 PM

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon called on Israel on Thursday to do more to protect civilian life during its military operations in Gaza, saying the conflict was taking too high a toll on civilians. "The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing. Gaza officials say more than 1,370 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in the

Comments:
Okay, Colonel, would you please tell us how many fatalities are just right?

There would be little or no casualties if the Palestinians would:

1. Stop using their women and children as human shields;
2. Their leaders would stop diverting the aid money into tunnels to attack Israel (and into their own pockets); and
3. Stop attacking the Israelis (remember, this crisis began with Palestinians kidnapping, torturing and killing three young Israeli men).

No condemnation of Hamas? How about the Hamas soldier who attacked an Israeli patrol with a rifle in one hand and a baby under his arm. I guess that´s ok with the Pentagon. All civilian casualties are caused by Hamas and Hamas alone.

Who is counting the casualties?
Who is deciding who qualifies as a civilian?

Since it is the arab terrorists that are giving out these numbers, they are suspect.
The arabs claim that anyone not in uniform is a civilian, but their forces do not wear uniforms.

Result: Phony statistics!

If this colonel has ever been in Iraq and seen combat and the news reports, he should understand this!

What is the purpose of the pentagon? Support and promotion of the American armed forces should be somewhere in its mission statement. How do these statements serve that mission? Point of fact they undermine American interests, Israel is our only dependable ally in the area. Undermining them is against American interests. SO SHUT UP

Now, send them more armaments to defend themselves and the world from these miserable barbarians! Otherwise, keep your comments to yourself!

Hamas´ tells the three UN humanitarian orgs how to count the dead: as civilians or as soldiers.
Hamas refuses to name the dead males so researchers cannot prove they had ties with Hamas.
Hamas also counts children 3 times each, using spelling variants.
The media then reports these phony numbers as if they are true.
Hamas is stealing food from their own civilians now.
I expect them to fall soon.

I am of the opinion that Israel should just obliterate the Gaza strip.
It is better to say "Oops I´m sorry", than "Please may I".
The world will get over it. And most importantly, Israel will survive.
As far as the UN´s Moon is concerned, let´s remove American troops from the Korean Border, and see how he reacts to missles lobbed from North Korea daily.
As for Colonel Warren, I bet if Patton were still around, he´d have some words for you.

A U.S. Marine who vanished from his unit in Iraq and later wound up in Lebanon for eight years will face trial on desertion and other charges, the military said Friday. Maj. Gen. William D. Beydler has referred 34-year-old Cpl. Wassef Hassoun for a general court-martial on charges of desertion, larceny and destruction of government property, according to a news release from the Marines. No date has been set for Hassoun´s trial at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, where he is being held. The case began in June 2004, when Hassoun disappeared from a base in Fallujah, Iraq.

Determined Kurdish forces have been striking back against advancing ISIS militants in a besieged town on the Syrian-Turkish border. In a dramatic firefight taking place this evening, the forces could be seen advancing onto the ridgeline occupied by ISIS extremists near the Kurdish town of Kobani. Dozens of Kurdish spectators gathered just metres away to cheer on the fighters in a chorus of deafening shouts and applause, as red flares from tracer bullets propelled across the darkening sky. Footage of the live firefight was filmed from the Turkish side of the embattled border, which has been under attack from ISIS extremists for the

Britain has bought 20 Tomahawk missiles from the US in preparation for its bombing campaign against Islamic State. Costing £1million each, they are fired from submarines and can be computer-programmed to turn corners. They have already been fired in the Gulf by the US and are likely to be among the first weapons used by the British military in Operation Shader. The submarines loiter offshore before going to depth to fire the Tomahawks which can cover more than 850 miles, can be retargeted in flight and can loiter above a target for more than two hours.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious.
