July 29 2014: How the Term ‘Human Shield’ is Used to Justify State Sponsored Massacres.
Abby Martin breaks through the propaganda rhetoric of ‘Human Shields’, calling out instances such as the second Iraq War and the current conflict in Gaza where the term has been used to demonize the entire demographics and populations subjected to being overthrown.
this is legitimately the most embarrassing picture i have seen ever in my life
the story behind this photo was: she actually cut her foot, and having a great sense of humor, posed for this photo.
omg i never noticed that thing on her foot
NOTICE THE THING ON HER FOOT
THIS IS TRUE COURAGE
THE WORST FEELING EVER IS WHEN YOURE SO ENTHUSIASTIC TELLING SOMEONE SOMETHING AND YOU CAN JUST PHYSICALLY FEEL THEM NOT CARING AT ALL SO YOU TRY HARDER BUT YOU JUST CANNOT GRASP THEIR ATTENTION SO YOU SLOWLY FADE OUT AND LET THEM GO BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY DO AND YOU WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR DAY TO TELL THEM SOMETHING YOU’RE HAPPY ABOUT
Darkness. That’s first thing I remember. It was dark, it was cold, and I was scared.
But then… then I saw the Moon.
Hospitals, ambulances, orphanages, schools, parks, mosques, churches, cemeteries, power plants & UN shelters - all targeted by ‘Israel’ using GPS guided smart bombs to slaughter the children of Palestine. It’s getting worse every day while you watch on screens from a distance, immobilized, not really understanding what Gaza means and bickering amongst yourselves about how you believe an oppressed people should resist their oppressor. Even to say enough is enough is so vapid these days. How many times can we say it? How far removed from the rhythm and beat of life can people be?
My heart breaks.
