Iraqi Children to the USA..."Please, Can You Stop Killing Us?"

Maybe this is what the Shadow President Kushner was ensuring continued when he visited Iraq in April.
The Silent Slaughter of the US Air War By Nicolas J. S. Davies May 11, 2017

April 2017 was another month of mass slaughter and unimaginable terror for the people of Mosul in Iraq and the areas around Raqqa and Tabqa in Syria, as the heaviest, most sustained U.S.-led bombing campaign since the American War in Vietnam entered its 33rd month.

The Airwars monitoring group has compiled reports of 1,280 to 1,744 civilians killed by at least 2,237 bombs and missiles that rained down from U.S. and allied warplanes in April (1,609 on Iraq and 628 on Syria). The heaviest casualties were in and around Old Mosul and West Mosul, where 784 to 1,074 civilians were reported killed, but the area around Tabqa in Syria also suffered heavy civilian casualties.
In other war zones, as I have explained in previous articles (here and here), the kind of “passive” reports of civilian deaths compiled by Airwars have only ever captured between 5 percent and 20 percent of the actual civilian war deaths revealed by comprehensive mortality studies. Iraqbodycount, which used a similar methodology to Airwars, had only counted 8 percent of the deaths discovered by a mortality study in occupied Iraq in 2006.

Airwars appears to be collecting reports of civilian deaths more thoroughly than Iraqbodycount 11 years ago, but it classifies large numbers of them as “contested” or “weakly reported,” and is deliberately conservative in its counting. For instance, in some cases, it has counted local media reports of “many deaths” as a minimum of one death, with no maximum figure. This is not to fault Airwars’ methods, but to recognize its limitations in contributing to an actual estimate of civilian deaths.

Allowing for various interpretations of Airwars’ data, and assuming that, like such efforts in the past, it is capturing between 5 percent and 20 percent of actual deaths, a serious estimate of the number of civilians killed by the U.S.-led bombing campaign since 2014 would by now have to be somewhere between 25,000 and 190,000.
The Pentagon recently revised its own facetious estimate of the number of civilians it has killed in Iraq and Syria since 2014 to 352. That is less than a quarter of the 1,446 victims whom Airwars has positively identified by name.

Airwars has also collected reports of civilians killed by Russian bombing in Syria, which outnumbered its reports of civilians killed by U.S.-led bombing for most of 2016. However, since the U.S.-led bombing escalated to over 10,918 bombs and missiles dropped in the first three months of 2017, the heaviest bombardment since the campaign began in 2014, Airwars’ reports of civilians killed by U.S.-led bombing have surpassed reports of deaths from Russian bombing.
What's the cause of all this madness and death? All for the glory of Apartheid Eretz Israel.

  2. In 2008 I began posting such images of young Palestinian victims of Israeli violence. Thousands of images I viewed for each posting. Eventually everyone else began participating in what I now term "war porn". I was not desensitized, just ready to let others spread the information. And it was good for a bit but now almost all information comes from Talmudic sources and we are back to where we started. They now fully control the Palestinian narrative.

    Thanks for the reminder. And to think that Trump ~ to bring back those jobs to America ~ is wheeling and dealing arms to the Saudis (who are busy ogling Ivanka's posterior despite her modest dresses)so that they can continue to arm ISIS and bomb the hell out of Yemen.

    The older I get; the more government changes I observe: the more I truly believe that nothing ever changes; it just deteriorates until things explode.Since I am old and have had a long blessed life, I feel no sorrow for myself, but it is those who follow us, Greg. Did our work to open eyes bear any fruit there?

    I don't see it. They are still slaughtering babies for Moloch. We are still dealing with Babylonian filth.

    I could ramble some more here, but think I have said enough for the moment.
