U.S. bombs middle east

By Adam Johnson | AlterNet

Council of Foreign Relations resident skeptic Micah Zenko recently tallied up how many bombs the United States has dropped on other countries and the results are as depressing as one would think. Zenko figured that since Jan. 1, 2015, the U.S. has dropped around 23,144 bombs on Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, all countries that are majority Muslim.

The chart, provided by the generally pro-State Department think tank, puts in stark terms how much destruction the U.S. has leveled on other countries. Whether or not one thinks such bombing is justified, it’s a blunt illustration of how much raw damage the United States inflicts on the Muslim world:

Sources: Estimate based upon Combined Forces Air Component Commander 2010-2015 Airpower Statistics; Information requested from CJTF-Operation Inherent Resolve Public Affairs Office, January 7, 2016; New America Foundation (NAF); Long War Journal (LWJ); The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ).

It does not appear to be working either. Despite the fact that the U.S. dropped 947 bombs in Afghanistan in 2015, a recent analysis in Foreign Policy magazine found that the Taliban control more territory in Afghanistan than at any point since 2001. The U.S. has entered its 16th year of war in Afghanistan despite several promises by the Obama administration to withdraw. In October of last year, President Obama reversed his position and decided to keep American troops in Afghanistan until the end of 2017.

The last four U.S. presidents have bombed Iraq, and that includes the current one since airstrikes were launched on Aug. 7, 2014. The war against ISIS was originally framed as a “limited,” “humanitarian” intervention. Since then, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has insisted it will be a “30-year war” and the White House has spoken vaguely of a “long-term effort” in both Iraq and Syria.

    Shameful waste of money and manpower

    I think: If that’s what a peace-minded man does, I’d hate to see what a war-minded one would come up with. But then I have to wonder, how much real power does any U.S. president have, and who is really pulling the strings behind the stage?

      Interesting post June, but yet they call him a p*$$y for not going after certain groups or writings orders to protect people.

      brilliant point – he is the 6th President claiming there’s shadow government – and there are two things that rule – Power and Money. If its not the President, its the Army and the Business monopolies !

      Raymond, I guess that is why a U.S. president gets the big bucks, he is the “whipping boy”. 😀

    • 621431984662217@facebook.com' Raymond Vaughn says:

      Absolutely, I don’t think too many could do that job under the pressures and opposition that he’s faced. Few forget that they did everything in their power to make him a one term president. Well, who’s crying NOW!

      For sure is a corrupt goverment and the way I see it is that they use laws into their advantage. Yes people vote but at the end the “goverment” is who call the shots. (They pick their battles) they supposedly have divided the power between them but at the end is corrupt so why stand for any of them?

      June, With expenses and travel (for work) President O only makes $550.000.00 (+ $19,000 entertainment). This is just a fraction of the Trump brand income. Forbes estimated his combined interests were worth $200 million (in 2011). However, Trump disputed Forbes’ claim, quoting $3 billion as his annual income. Of course, these figures are far below his actual net worth.
      Keep in mind that my intention is not to single out these individuals. I’m merely providing examples based on current information.

    I think that corporate military industrial complex own him. He also broke his promise to protect us from the GMO industry and their seed patenting which is nothing more than privatizing plant seeds so you cannot grow your own food without paying Monsanto. No doubt he was the better of the candidates and did some good things but I was disappointed he didn’t do more.

      He is an empty suit like all presidents since at least the early 1900’s. The uber mega-rich call the shots behind the scene. The Rothchilds, the Rockefellers and others who are part of the bilderburg group. It is a fact Obama meet with members of the group not long before for he was sworn into office. It’s on the net, no one knows what was said in the meeting. Dem or repub, left or right is all a scam.. the real truth is divide and conquer!

      Sorry Juan, you should be ashamed of your comment. It is a tiny minority of terrorists/extremists that are the danger hiding behind the misuse of the Islamic tag. Jesus was a prophet just like Moses and just like Mohammed. We are all aspects of the same Creator, the same God. We are all the children of God and as such we are Angelic, we are God. When we return to Spirit we get our memories back and our abilities. We communicate with all other souls and the animals with a Universal telepathic language. We go through a life revue when every thought and action is considered and judged by ourselves. You might regret some of the attitude and opinions that you hold at the moment. We all need to put Love back into the Earths negative energy field. It is not too late to consider this and become enlightened. http://www.josephspeaks.com

        Juan is precisely not aware and with no knowledge of his judgemental words saying Muslims are antiChrist. Remember that faithful or believers like Muslims follow and love all the Prophets and Messengers of Almighty God so, Muslims follow also the teachings of Jesus Christ. Therefore, Muslims love not only Prophet Mohammad but Jesus Christ also.

It’s ignorant puppets like YOU that should be eradicated with prejudice. It’s morons such as YOU that no longer belong among us. So…find a bridge & jump. Suck a bullet. Guzzle Draino. Whatever.

      Richard Jensen how can an aspect of God, as you truely are, use such language towards an aspect of yourself. We are all ONE, we are Gods children, Spiritual beings and as such we are all Angelic! we are God. When we return to Spirit we have a ‘life revue’ when every thought and action are considered and when we also get to feel the effect our words and actions have had on others. All this will sound incredible to you but it is TRUTH. Can I recommend that you study to word for word knowledge from Spirit. http://www.josephspeaks.com

I do believe we are all One and sometimes wish those liked minded (ISIS vs Juan types) to face off with each other and let the rest of us alone to live in peace. Guess I haven’t quite reached my “Angelic” stage? 🙂

    • 949624225091678@facebook.com' Graham Perrins says:

      Liz Adams we all regain it when we return to Spirit but meditation and channeling Light does work. The Light carries, Love, Harmony, Peace and Healing Energies. I started daily meditation just over a year ago and cleared up several health issues. I never get any aches or pains any more and feel wonderful every day. I am at the stage now where I see, flashes, visions, pictures etc. during meditation and can visualise and then see clearly places or objects that I am familiar with as if they were in front of me. Our minds still do have power. Good luck in the future. Be positive and we are most definitely One.

    I feel like almost any being who would strive for power in their life, whether political, spiritial, executive, etc., is going to have issues with their heart and a disconnect from humanity. Yes, Obama shed lots of tears for the victims of shootings, but anybody can learn to cry on cue in front of a camera. I don’t care how humanitarian a political leader may be portrayed, the red flag is in the fact that they are who they are. Power and control. The only kind of people I would ever trust as a leader would refuse to be a leader. We must lead ourselves and only trust our experience, though the integrity of our own experiences should be in question as well. Look at all the people spewing “facts” from the news, from the internet, from their neighbor, all spicing it up with their own little opinions. 500 people could witness an event and have 500 different perspectives. And most are convinced that the conclusions drawn by their human mind stand for Truth. Whatever helps you sleep at night, I suppose. Whatever makes you feel “smart” or “good”. Point is, there’s no use in trying to take our opinions about an event we didn’t witness, people we’ve never known, and compare them to each other.

    This should be on the front page of every newspaper.

    Charley Reese’s Final column!

    A very interesting column. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL.
    Be sure to Read the Poem at the end..

    Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel… He has been a journalist for 49 years. He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.

    Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.

    This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

    545 vs. 300,000,000 People
    -By Charlie Reese

    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a budget in over three years. The President’s proposed budgets have gotten almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time. ]

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

    If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ..

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
    Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.

    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees… We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.

    What you do with this article now that you have read it… is up to you.
    This might be funny if it weren’t so true.
    Be sure to read all the way to the end:

    Tax his land,
    Tax his bed,
    Tax the table,
    At which he’s fed.

    Tax his tractor,
    Tax his mule,

    Tax his work,
    Tax his pay,

    Tax his shirt,

    Tax his tobacco,
    Tax his drink,
    Tax him if he
    Tries to think.

    Tax his cigars,
    Tax his beers,
    If he cries
    Tax his tears.

    Tax his car,
    Tax his gas,
    Find other ways
    To tax his ass.

    Tax all he has
    Then let him know
    That you won’t be done
    Till he has no dough.

    When he screams and hollers;
    Then tax him some more,
    Tax him till
    He’s good and sore.

    Then tax his coffin,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in
    Which he’s laid…

    Put these words
    Upon his tomb,
    ‘Taxes drove me
    to my doom…’

    When he’s gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply
    The inheritance tax.
    Accounts Receivable Tax
    Building Permit Tax
    CDL license Tax

    STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

    What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
    I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

    In case you can’t be bothered to read the entire article, the gist is: “Congress is within its power to define the nature of U.S. Military engagement against ISIS.” In other words, ANY U.S. President requires authorization from Congress to order ANY military action.
    Why do you insist on blaming EVERYTHING on Obama? Call your Congress person. Your smear campaigns are falling on the wrong ears!

    e. I call it The “Ignoble” Prize, because the man who created the Nobel Prize – it was his name, Nobel. But his function was – in the first world war and before that – that he was the biggest manufacturer of arms. He was supplying arms to the whole world. Every war was fought with his weapons, both sides would be using his arms, and through these arms he collected great richness. Then his Christian guilt came over him at the time of his death, that “I am the greatest creator of war material – and all the people who have died because of my weapons.everybody who has died, has died because of my arms.” In any country, anywhere, both the parties were using his weapons. He was the only person who was refining and refining, and making better and better war material. He became afraid of hellfire. He donated all his money and created a trust, so that every year, just out of the interest, Nobel Prizes should be given to different branches of science, art, literature, music.any contribution to humanity. It was simply trying to erase his guilt.

  81. 10153365434635878@facebook.com' Shamil Taliesin says:

    the Nobel prize was founded by a man who earned money in the first world war by creating all kinds of destructive bombs, machines. The first world war was fought using the means supplied by Mr. Nobel. And he earned such a huge amount of money… Both the parties were getting war material from the same source; he was the only person who was creating war materials on a vast scale. So whoever was killed, was killed by him. It doesn’t matter whether he belonged to this side or to that side; whoever was killed was killed by his bombs. So in old age, when he had all the money in the world a man can have, he established the Nobel prize. It is given as a peace award — by a man who earned the money by war! Whoever is working for peace receives a Nobel prize. It is given for great scientific inventions, great artistic, creative inventions. And with the Nobel prize comes big money — right now it is near about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The best award, and two hundred and fifty thousand dollars with it; and it goes on increasing because money goes on becoming less and less valuable. And such a fortune that man must have created that all these Nobel prizes that are distributed every year are given only out of the interest. The basic money remains intact, will remain intact forever. Every year so much interest accumulates that you can give twenty Nobel prizes

  82. 10153365434635878@facebook.com' Shamil Taliesin says:

    Now the Nobel Prize has been given to politicians, even a man like Kissinger gets a Nobel Prize! And what is his contribution to humanity? I call it the Ignoble Prize because it is full of blood, the blood of millions of people who were massacred by Nobel’s weapons. No man of dignity should accept it.

  83. 10153365434635878@facebook.com' Shamil Taliesin says:

    Jean-Paul Sartre, refused to accept the Nobel prize. And when he was asked why, he said, “To accept the Nobel prize is in some way to compromise, is in some way to receive respectability from a society with which I am not in agreement. Perhaps the Nobel prize will weaken me. “They are so respectful to me — how can I go on fighting against everything they believe in: against their God, against their morality, against their politics?” He said, “Accepting the Nobel prize will be selling myself — that I cannot do.” And he was perfectly right.

    Sorry, are we supposed to be upset that many many bombs are being dropped to protect the world from ISIL and the lot? So should we in turn be impressed that they are doing more damage with select few bombs and a truck? Who’s side is the piece on? Is there any way to shut you people up who like to change your position everyday depending upon how it suits your political ident? Just wondering.
