The world will know less about what is happening in Gaza because of what happened today.

Which is why it was done.

Also, I'm just gonna throw this in before anybody tries being all like "HuRr tHeY sHoUlDn'T HaVe tErRoRiStS ThEn!!!"

It sure is funny how some people's opinion about the destruction of private property has radically changed from last year, now that we're talking about war crimes being committed against an ethnic minority lol.

And Ted Cruz is promising to go to Israel to give them whatever they want.

I wonder if the flight there connects through Cancun.

I'll be blunt, before this attack i avoided taking sides. This attack has changed that. This wasn't an attack on hamas or palestinians, it was an attack on the eyes of the world in an effort to blind us from what is happening.

Shouldn't waging war on the press be against international law or something?

Welcome to the party, pal. Just wait until you remember what Israel did to Ethiopian immigrants under this whole new perspective.

There's only three reasons people support Israel anymore:

1. You can't tell the difference between Judaism and Zionism.

II. You're a straight up ethnonationalist.

c. You're an Evangelical who's hoping that Jesus blows it all up.

Someone should tell The Hague.

Mind you, I'm picturing The Hague as a tights-wearing superhero, cape fluttering behind him in the wind.  Not quite sure what his powers are yet.

ALSO, I used intentionally ambiguous language.  I know you aren't supposed to attack individual members of the press, but I don't know if it's against the rules to break their stuff.

Might be in the same section of the rulebook which prohibits intentionally bombing hospitals.

Not the same rule, obviously, but in more or less the same general vicinity. I'm not too sure that a war crimes tribunal will care too much about the difference between targeting specific individual members of the press and targeting the hotel they're staying at (bullet with someone's name on it vs bomb addressed "To Whom It May Concern")

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know why we haven't greenlit a link on this yet.

Thanks for being patient, we're just light on mods today and want to make sure there's a mod to cover the thread before we green one because threads on this topic tend to get somewhat heated. If we can scare up a mod with some time to spend in it, we'll get it green for you.

Microwave?
Anybody who eats lunchables should be drug into the street, and fed a proper f*cking sammich!
Only the lazy and inept buy lunchables. And then they feed 'em to their useless children.

In the time since Israel bombed the Associated Press, BBC, and Al Jazeera, the following has happened:

- Biden called BiBi and BiBi told Biden to get bent
- Israel tried blaming it on Hamas being in the building without providing proof
- AP has asked for documentation on the BBC
- Protests have started in major American cities
- In LA, the cops started protecting the Israeli embassy from the protestors
- Palestine has started retaliating for the razing of buildings by firing rockets at Israel

Yeah, among other reasons you should never vote for me to be your president, I would 100% withdraw all support from Israel. No troops, no guns, no bombs, no ships, not even a goodbye.

One of them is just like "that weirdo that keeps talking about Pokémon and posting furry porn isn't going to be there, is he?"

And the others are like "you know he is, and he's going to be belligerently replying to pro-Israeli posters by posting that damned picture of farm equipment rotating a cow for some reason."

Some days I wonder if we should evacuate the Palestinians to the USA and give them, I dunno, Wyoming or somewhere else with a lot of empty federal land to live in.  Might be cheaper than all the f*cking about in the Middle East that we do.  Whatever Republican nutjobs live wherever we're putting the Palestinians can just live out their fantasies about being relocated by rail car carriers to FEMA camps or whatever.
