Brave US soldiers have again terror-bombed the middle east for democracy. It was a successful pro-democracy operation if you consider that the democratically-elected President Bashar Assad is now in control of more of the country than at any time before US bombing began.
This particular bombing occurred in 2017 and featured some of the most CentCom things you will ever see:
Given the dam’s protected status, the decision to strike it would normally have been made high up the chain of command. But the former officials said the task force used a procedural shortcut reserved for emergencies, allowing it to launch the attack without clearance.Later, three workers who had rushed to the dam to prevent a disaster were killed in a different coalition airstrike, according to dam workers.
For the uninitiated, this is what has been going on in the Middle East ever since the US showed up in Iraq in 2003: terrorists bomb something and then bomb the ambulances that show up ten minutes later. Mostly it is Iraqi Resistance and ISIS who are known to do this bit but it is totally unsurprising that the US has copied them in this regard. After all, CentCom is running a terror campaign in everything but name:
Mission: USCENTCOM directs and enables military operations and activities with allies and partners to increase regional security and stability in support of enduring U.S. interests.
If I enabled military operations and activities with allies and partners to increase regional security and stability in support of enduring White interests, I would be in a strung up in a closet in Tunisia for the rest of my very short life.
The former officials said the report warned that a strike could cause a critical malfunction and a devastating flood that could kill tens of thousands of people. The findings echoed a United Nations report from January 2017, which stated that if attacks on the dam caused it to fail, communities for more than 100 miles downstream would be flooded.The military report was completed several weeks before the strike and sent to the task force, one former official said. But in the final week of March 2017, a team of task force operators on the ground decided to strike the dam anyway, using some of the biggest conventional bombs available.
Let’s. Fucking. Gooooooooo. MAGA hat back on. We are bombing brown people for Israel; step aside or get bowled over. UN libtards are absolutely seething.
A military report obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit shows the operators contacted a B-52 bomber circling high overhead and requested an immediate airstrike on three targets. But the report makes no mention of enemy forces firing or heavy casualties. Instead, it says the operators requested the strikes for “terrain denial.”The two former officials said the terrain denial request suggested that allied forces were not in danger of being overrun by enemy fighters, and that the task force’s goal was likely to preemptively destroy fighting positions in the towers.
This story is impossibly retarded. CentCom have got to all be 95-IQ Mestinx and NoC to be doing Wile E Coyote stuff like this, right? Well, the commander of CentCom who set the stage for a lot of these NoC-brained processes was an NoC and we just did an article about this Raytheon puppet yesterday.
However, the commander at the time of the 2017 attempted terror-bombing was a guy named Joseph Votel who had all the right qualifications for the job.
Votel oversaw a massive wave of US violence directed at civilians by allowing American junior officers and NCOs under the Task Force Talon Anvil to call their own shots with regard to airstrikes in densely-populated areas.
The former Air Force intelligence officer, who worked almost daily on missions from 2016 to 2018, said he notified the main Air Force operations center in the region about civilian casualties several times, including after a March 2017 strike when Talon Anvil dropped a 500-pound bomb on a building where about 50 people were sheltering. But he said leaders seemed reluctant to scrutinize a strike cell that was driving the offensive on the battlefield.Every year that the strike cell operated, the civilian casualty rate in Syria increased significantly, according to Larry Lewis, a former Pentagon and State Department adviser who was one of the authors of a 2018 Defense Department report on civilian harm. Mr. Lewis, who has viewed the Pentagon’s classified civilian casualty data for Syria, said the rate was 10 times that of similar operations he tracked in Afghanistan.
So, what the NYT is describing here is actually not called a strike cell, it is called a terror cell. The NYT must have just got confused and concocted an all-new and artistically anodyne term for terror cell by mistake. It was what we in the journalism biz call “an oopsie.”
Just so no one is confused: the bombs failed to destroy the dam. Quick action from various militias opposed to one another allowed them to call truces to destroy lesser dams and flood less-populated areas. Even when CentCom tries to do a terrorism, they can’t quite do it right because the American military is falling apart after two decades of demoralizing, pointless action. All the moral and upright people who were in the military have thrown their uniforms straight in the trash long ago and are milking some sweet bennies this very instant. Many veterans are essentially getting paid to kick back and do whatever they want, including writing articles exposing the dishonorable behavior of the US military. That is what our sources are saying, anyway.
Additionally, so that no one is confused, flouting rules set up to protect the dam was an outright attempt to destroy the dam and kill the population. It is a strategy that has been pursued by the USAF in the past, including in Korea where an astonishing 20% of all North Koreans died due to bombing or famine caused by the intentional destruction of dams.
The bombing was long, leisurely and merciless, even by the assessment of America’s own leaders. “Over a period of three years or so, we killed off — what — 20 percent of the population,” Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay, head of the Strategic Air Command during the Korean War, told the Office of Air Force History in 1984. Dean Rusk, a supporter of the war and later secretary of state, said the United States bombed “everything that moved in North Korea, every brick standing on top of another.” After running low on urban targets, U.S. bombers destroyed hydroelectric and irrigation dams in the later stages of the war, flooding farmland and destroying crops.
If you think this was a mistake and the US forces were just trying their best with the limited means at their disposal, you may not be destined to make it on this Earth; you are just too much of a sweetheart and will probably always get ZOG’d. The good news is rubes won’t drag us down for long because every day it looks more likely that the system is collapsing and it will be Israel that gets MOG’d.
