Washington doodt meer burgers dan terroristen in Midden-Oosten (en zet verarmd uranium in)

Washington doodt meer burgers dan terroristen in Midden-Oosten (en zet verarmd uranium in)

Meer dan 200 lichamen zijn in Mosul uit het puin gehaald nadat de door Amerika geleide coalitie bepaalde dichtbevolkte wijken bombardeerde.

Nooit kwamen zoveel burgers om in Irak door Amerikaanse luchtaanvallen. Het Amerikaanse leger heeft inmiddels bekend dat het de gebouwen heeft gebombardeerd waar de burgerslachtoffers zijn gevallen.

In andere delen van Irak en grote delen rond de Syrische stad Raqqa stijgt het aantal burgerslachtoffers aanzienlijk.


Volgens Airwars, een Brits onderzoeksbureau dat de gevolgen van luchtbombardementen op burgers onderzoekt, heeft de Amerikaanse coalitie meer burgerslachtoffers op haar geweten dan Rusland.

Op enkele kilometers ten westen van Raqqa bombardeerde de Amerikaanse coalitie een schoolgebouw waar vluchtelingen werden opgevangen, zo meldde het Turkse persbureau Anadolu.

Bij de aanval vielen honderden burgerdoden.

Verarmd uranium

Afgelopen week werd bekend dat bij de luchtaanval op een moskee in het dorp Al-Jin tenminste 49 burgers waren omgekomen.

De Franse krant Le Monde sprak van één van de bloedigste vergissingen van het Pentagon sinds het begin van de operatie in Syrië.

Washington maakt niet alleen veel burgerdoden in Irak en Syrië, maar uit onderzoek blijkt dat Amerikaanse troepen ook verarmd uranium inzetten in het Midden-Oosten.


Daardoor kan het aantal burgerdoden op de lange termijn nog flink gaan stijgen.

Verarmd uranium is een afvalproduct van de kernindustrie. Het ontstaat bij de opwerking van bestraalde kernreactorbrandstof.

Het wordt door westerse troepen ingezet tegen onder andere gepantserde doelen.

Verarmd uranium is minder radioactief dan normaal uranium, maar is nog steeds giftig en kan leiden tot geboorteafwijkingen en kanker.

Beduidend hoger

Washington ontkende steeds dat er verarmd uranium werd ingezet tegen terreurgroep IS in Syrië, maar Foreign Policy onthulde dat het Amerikaanse leger tijdens tenminste twee operaties in 2015 verarmd uranium heeft gebruikt tegen militanten.

Het aantal burgerdoden als gevolg van Amerikaanse luchtaanvallen tijdens de zogenaamde oorlog tegen terrorisme in het Midden-Oosten ligt ongetwijfeld beduidend hoger dan het aantal terroristen dat tot nu toe is gedood door de Amerikaanse coalitie.

Klik:>Prepare For Millions Of Jobs To Disappear Overnight Once Driverless Car And Robot & Drone Technology Perfected

by Geoffrey Grider

Yes, robots, drones and driverless cars will absorb tens of millions of jobs globally

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: There is a massive wave of technology about to be unleashed that will change the way we do business that will be as radical as anything you could possibly imagine. Every major tech company has been spending millions and billions of dollars to perfect robot, drone and driverless vehicle technology. Once fully implemented, you can say goodbye to jobs like taxi and limo drivers, delivery drivers, and factory technicians of every kind. It is being rolled out right now in huge companies like Amazon, Domino’s, and dozens of others.

·         Domino’s Will Begin Using Robots to Deliver Pizzas in Europe: Starship Technologies, the London-based company that has created six-wheeled self-driving delivery robots, will begin taking customers Domino’s pizzas in Germany and the Netherlands. Starship, launched in July 2014 by two former Skype co-founders, Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis, will whisk pizzas to customers’ doors if they live within a one-mile radius of certain Domino’s pizza shops in “select German and Dutch cities,” the company said in a statement. Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd., the world’s largest franchise licence owner of Domino’s Pizza, with operations in markets across Asia and Europe, has formed a group called Domino’s Robotic Unit to oversee the project. Domino’s has tested ground-based autonomous vehicles for pizza delivery in Australia and New Zealand in 2016. In November it also delivered a pizza –peri-peri chicken– by drone in New Zealand. “With our growth plans over the next five to 10 years, we simply won’t have enough delivery drivers if we do not look to add to our fleet through initiatives such as this,” Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Chief Executive Officer Don Meij said in a statement. source

·         California Finally Ready For Driverless Cars: Now, Silicon Valley’s home state is ready to toss the bag of flesh and bones and replace it with a big sack of cash. The California Department of Motor Vehicles today proposed new regulations that will finally prepare for the move from testing to commercialization. That’ll make for even better photo ops if you see one, and eventually some interesting ride-sharing experiences—definitely no unwanted chit chat if a robocar picks you up.California’s got good reason to welcome this tech. Some 3,000 people die on its roads every year, and self-driving cars could eliminate the human error that causes 90 percent of crashes. They could make more people more mobile, reduce emissions (maybe), and boost the economy. source

·         Amazon Launches PrimeAir Drone Delivery Service: We’re excited about Prime Air — a delivery system from Amazon designed to safely get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles, also called drones. Prime Air has great potential to enhance the services we already provide to millions of customers by providing rapid parcel delivery that will also increase the overall safety and efficiency of the transportation system. source


You are looking at the future, a future that is replacing humans with drones, robots and driverless vehicles. It’s a brave, new world, one that will not be run by humans, at least not the way you know things to be right now.

Dressed Like The Joker, A Defiant Hillary Clinton Takes The Stage Calling For ‘Resistance’ Of New Administration

Klik:>Dressed Like The Joker, A Defiant Hillary Clinton Takes The Stage Calling For ‘Resistance’ Of New Administration

by Geoffrey Grider

A spirited Hillary Clinton took on the Trump administration Tuesday in one of her first public speeches since she lost the presidential election, criticizing the country’s Republican leaders on everything from health care to the shortage of women appointees in top administration positions.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Is Hillary Clinton sending us a message with her choice of clothing? It’s hard to tell whether she sees herself as a dark Gotham anti-hero from Batman, or if she is planning on coming out and announcing she’s a lesbian. Either way the creepiness factor is rising rapidly. 

Cracking jokes about her November defeat and her months out of the limelight since, Clinton spoke to thousands of businesswomen in San Francisco, joking there was no place she’d rather be, “other than the White House.”

Without mentioning President Donald Trump by name, Clinton faulted the Republican presidential administration repeatedly, including calling its representation of women in top jobs “the lowest in a generation.”

She rebuked White House press secretary Sean Spicer, again not by name, for hours earlier Tuesday chiding a black woman journalist during a news conference for shaking her head.

“Too many women have had a lifetime of practice taking this kind of indignity in stride,” Clinton said.

“I mean, it’s not like I didn’t know all the nasty things they were saying about me. I thought some of them were kind of creative,” she said. “But you just have to keep going.”

Clinton declared herself appalled at a much-circulated photo showing an all-male group of Republican lawmakers last month negotiating women’s coverage in health care legislation, noting a social-media parody of it that showed an all-dog panel deciding on feline care.

Last week’s failure of the GOP health care bill, Clinton told a cheering, applauding crowd, was “a victory for all Americans.”

Clinton has kept a low profile after Trump defeated her for the presidency, except chiefly for sightings while she took walks outdoors with her husband, former President Bill Clinton. She said earlier this month that she intended to start speaking out again on public issues.

On Tuesday, she urged voters to resist Trump policies that she said included suspicion of refugees and voter suppression in some areas.

“These are bad policies that will hurt people and take our country in the wrong direction,” Clinton said, relaying what she had become one of her mantras since the November election.

“It’s the kinds of things you think about when you take long walks in the woods,” she said. “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.” source
