US AIRSTRIKES KILL 62 PEOPLE IN COASTAL SOMALI TOWN | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


US AIRSTRIKES KILL 62 PEOPLE IN COASTAL SOMALI TOWN

Over the weekend, US warplanes carried out at least six airstrikes against the coastal town of Gandarsh, Somalia. US African Command (Africom) says 62 people were killed in the strikes, and all were “terrorists” from al-Shabaab.

34 people were killed on Saturday, and 28 more on Sunday. The identities of the slain are not clear, and there is no way to verify Africom’s claims. This is, however, standard operating procedure for them, to both label all slain as militants, and to say they don’t think any civilians were killed or wounded.

This often doesn’t remain the case, however. When the US is striking a large number of people inside a populated area, it’s very unusual not to have some civilians killed along the way. Yet in remote places like Somalia, it often takes days to find that out.

In the meantime, the Pentagon has virtually total control over the narrative, and sticks to formulaic releases meant to spin the strikes as legal, claiming they preempted a plot, without providing any evidence of such a plot.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The degree to which the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika kills civilians, in its quest to "pacify" those citizen who DARE to live over, and around, resources the US government wants to expropriate, has become depressing in the extreme.

And according to Wikipedia, Somalia has a lot of those resources. The Economy of Somalia

The pattern is painfully familiar, if you know how to look at how this gets done; to get a stranglehold on an existing government, or regime change it; "pacify" those natives who do not want to be governed by an outside government (usually by assassinating people outright);expropriating those resources it wants, and insuring that only certain countries have access to those resources, and that they are only sold in US dollars.

Mike and I would love to move to a country which doesn't sponsor war crimes, to feed its economic appetite; unfortunately, we are both too broke, and too old for that to happen.
