The early media personalities sometimes gave us glimpses of the future. Edward R. Murrow was one of them.

  1. U.S. shipped 989 munitions containers to Israel week before Gaza invasion

    Australian Herald 10th April, 2009

    In the dying days of the Bush administration, and a week before Israel launched an aerial bombing campaign, followed by a land invasion of the Gaza Strip, the U.S. military shipped 989 containers of munitions to Israel.

    Each container was 20-feet long with a total estimated net weight of 14,000 tonnes. The shipment reportedly reached Israel last month at Ashod, 40 kiometres north of Gaza. The huge arsenal of munitions will replenish those expended in the Gaza War.

    According to Amnesty International in the UK, the shipment included white phosphorous.

    Unless my math is faulty, we shipped to Apartheid Israel about 14 MILLION tons of high quality weapons for their pre-planned Gaza invasion.

    Or about nine pounds of WP, ammo and explosives for each Gazan.

    If we assign a number, like say each ton was worth $1,000 dollars, that means we gave that nation of war mongers and land thieves an extra 14 BILLION in December 2008.

    Wonder how many vets who are languishing in a VA hospital from wounds received fighting a war for Israel could have been helped with that money?
