Civilian Casualties and Effectiveness of U.S. Drone Strikes in Yemen

In 2017, the United States military said that it carried out more than 120 strikes in Yemen, more than three times as many as strikes as 2016. For many years, we at the Mwatana Organization for Human Rights documented the impact of U.S. drone strikes in Yemen through detailed field research. In 2017 we investigated eight drone strikes and ground operations and found that U.S. operations were responsible for the deaths of at least 32 civilians – including 16 children and six women – and injured ten others, including five children. (The results of these investigations will be released in a forthcoming report.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there was a way to insure perpetual war, to satiate the monied blood-craving elites of the US military/industrial complex, the US government has certainly gotten this recipe down to a science.

And from Reuters, we have a companion piece, about the US government approving more weapons sales to Saudi Arabia with which to perfect its genocide in Yemen:

U.S. State Dept approves possible $1.3 billion artillery sale to Saudi Arabia

Doesn't it just make you feel ever-so-proud to be an American, understanding that your government has absolutely zero problem partipating in Saudi war crimes in Yemen?!?

Heavier Violence Threatened as Friday Gaza Protest Looms

Between the Israeli gunfire at the border on Friday itself, and other incidents, at least 21 Gazans have been killed in the past week. This centered around week one of the Land Day protests, but many are expecting that the violence around the protests could get more severe as the weeks go on.

This Friday’s protest, dubbed the “day of tires,” has both Hamas and the Israeli government threatening responses beyond simple border protests, and the bloody cracking down on such protests, Israeli officials have indicated that the use of live fire on demonstrators was needed to defend the border fence.

Israel’s far-right government has tried to position its killing of protesters as “self-defense,” while portraying them as terrorists. Israeli military officials are expressing growing concern that the policy could backfire, saying they aren’t confident that they have the crowd control capacity to deal with tens of thousands of Gazans if they force the issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli government, in its usual fog of hubris, just does not at all comprehend how horrific the optics here already are.

And they will get far worse, particularly if such demonstrations are led by women, children, and infants, in their fathers' arms.

Cleaning House, Enabling War

Think about it for a second. An embattled, scandal-ridden administration suddenly fires two hawkish, though tenuously mainstream, foreign policy advisers and replaces them with off-the-grid warmongers. Connect those dots and it gets scary, fast. In fact, the situation is starting to resemble a Hollywood-style, Wag-the-Dog, drum-up-a-war-to-distract-the-populace scenario.

With whom? Given the proclivities of Pompeo and Bolton, the obvious candidate is Iran. After all, as their records suggest, both the incoming secretary of state and the national security adviser suffer from acute cases of Iran hysteria and have been beating the Islamic Republic war drum for years now. So look for Trump and his two new subordinates to strike a less than substantial deal with nuclear North Korea (to show their cuddly diplomatic side) and then pivot toward tearing up the Iran nuclear deal in May and heading for military action against non-nuclear – and so more vulnerable – nuclear-pact-adhering Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you, but these two appointments, taken together, are causing the hair on the back of my neck to stand up straight, and do Zumba; and I move like a brick!!

Trump's Establishment-Defying Plan to Exit Syria Likely to De-Escalate Conflict

President Donald Trump’s pledge to withdraw all US forces from Syria reveals his continuing determination to defy Washington’s national security establishment to scale down the war in Syria, analysts told Sputnik.

Last week, Trump said that the United States would pull its forces from Syria "very soon," but CNN reported that this decision is probably opposed by some high-ranking officials in the president's administration.

Incoming US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford have recommended that Trump not immediately withdraw troops from Syria, as the move would go against national interests, local media reported on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump has the absolutely correct idea here.

So I would like to politely ask incoming Sec State Pompeo, and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Dunford the following question: precisely whose "national interests" in Syria is served by the continuing US presence in here?!?

Because it is certainly are not those of the American people.

Is it because Israel wants regime change in Damascus, but only at the costs in American blood, and American money?!?

If in fact that is the case, I would politely suggest that the Israeli military invade Syria, and just see what Russia is going to do about it; because Russia most certainly will not let such nonsense stand for very long.

RESIDENTS OF ILLINOIS VILLAGE HAVE 60 DAYS TO SURRENDER GUNS OR FACE $1000 A DAY FINE

Residents of Deerfield, Illinois have 60 days to turn in their “assault weapons” or face fines of up to $1000 dollars a day.

Earlier this week, the The Village Board of Trustees passed an ordinance which banned certain types of “assault weapons” and large capacity magazines, including the the Ruger 10/22, which can accept magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

Semi-automatic pistols that can hold more than 10 rounds have also been banned. Law enforcement and retired law enforcement members of the community are exempted from the ban.

Residents will have to either sell the weapons, transfer ownership to someone living outside of the town, turn them into police or pay the exorbitant fines, which range from $250 to $1000 per day per gun. The deadline is June 13.

Authorities justified the ban by pointing to the recent spate of mass shootings, including last year’s Sutherland Springs shooting, which was stopped by a man who used one of the very guns Deerfield has now banned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but have these city authorities ever read the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution?!?

The disputation of this law should go all the way up to the Supreme Court.

SANDBERG: FACEBOOK USERS WOULD HAVE TO PAY TO OPT OUT OF SHARING DATA

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says that while Facebook doesn't sell or give away its users' information (it just allows third party apps to do that), the company still "depends on your data," and if users wanted to completely opt out of all of the platform's data-driven advertising, they would have to pay for it.

Sandberg made the comments in an interview with Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie in an interview set to air Friday morning.

So "we don't have an opt-out at the highest level," she acknowledged. "That would be a paid product." -NBC News

The Today interview was one of many Sandberg gave on Thursday as part of a massive damage control and image rehabilitation campaign in the wake of a massive data harvesting scandal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very interesting that Ms. Sandberg did not quantify what the cost for leaving Facebook would be.

How incredibly hubristic; this person may be a female of the species, but appears to also have been endowed with titanium "male attributes", which click when she walks (that ... has to be at least a little disconserting to her corporate colleagues!! :-))

'IF MY PLANE EXPLODES, ASK THE CIA’ – DUTERTE AFTER REQUESTING ARMS FROM RUSSIA & CHINA

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte isn’t ruling out that the US might be very annoyed and consider his decision to procure weapons from China and Russia a threat, after Washington refused to supply Manila with arms.
The Philippines has been seeking modern weapons and small arms to step up combat against ISIS-linked Islamists, ever since Duterte assumed office in June 2016. However, Washington’s refusal to sell assault rifles, over concerns about the country’s human rights record amid the ongoing war on drugs, has forced Duterte to seek new suppliers. Manila, which has long depended on the US for weapons, turned to China and Russia to fill the gap.

READ MORE: Philippines ‘very seriously’ concerned that US intelligence tags Duterte a ‘threat to democracy’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Duterte has a very clear grasp of how the United States government deals with governments it does not like.

The Pentagon Spent $60 Million on a Power Station in Afghanistan that Doesn’t Work

The United States has spent more than $800 billion on the never ending war in Afghanistan, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The bulk of that money was spent fighting the Taliban, but billions have also gone toward rebuilding the country and investing in its infrastructure. A lot of those projects haven't gone well, and a $60 million power system in northeast Afghanistan that doesn't provide any power is just the latest example.

According to a new report from John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) mismanaged the project so badly that its powerstation isn’t connected to a power source, hasn’t been tested, and “may be structurally unsound and pose a risk to Afghans who live near transmission towers and lines,” or who work at the station.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but purely predictable from this government and its misuse of our military.

The Afghani people have been so betrayed by the US invasion and occupation of their country, under completely false pretenses, which was undertaken for the control of the pipeline routes, and control of its opium poppies, I hardly know where to begin.

WASHINGTON AND RIYADH'S TERROR ENTERPRISE

What began as a means for the House of Saud itself to establish, expand, and eventually consolidate political power on the Arabian Peninsula in the 18th century has now become a finely honed tool of geopolitical power integrated into Washington's foreign policy.

A remarkable admission was recently made in the pages of the Washington Post in an article titled, "Saudi prince denies Kushner is ‘in his pocket’."

The article would quote Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, stating (emphasis added):
Asked about the Saudi-funded spread of Wahhabism, the austere faith that is dominant in the kingdom and that some have accused of being a source of global terrorism, Mohammed said that investments in mosques and madrassas overseas were rooted in the Cold War, when allies asked Saudi Arabia to use its resources to prevent inroads in Muslim countries by the Soviet Union.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War crimes, and the hush-money to "paper them over" in the corporate, presstitute media; this is what the US government, Saudi Arabia, and Israel had in common, before the advent of the independent media.

And I will be very happy to tell THE B.O.Y. to his face,(AKA, The Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia'sPrince Salman) that I am profoundly unhappy with the US colluding in Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

If we were younger, and had the money, I would love for Mike and me to be able to immigrate to a country which doesn't indulge in these obscenely immoral activities (I hear that the Principality of Andorra is just lovely, and expats from other countries can get extended visas).

Unfortunately, we are too old, and too broke, to make that happen.

I have no power in the Bowels of Power in DC, as I am neither monied, nor connected in any meaningful way; but as long as I have breath in my body, I will continue to peacefully witness to any war crimes in which the US government and military are involved, and share that information with the rest of the world.

NEW SURVEILLANCE CAMERA SOFTWARE ALLOWS LAW ENFORCEMENT TO IDENTIFY GROUPS OF PEOPLE IN REAL-TIME

Imagine walking down a public street on your way to dinner with your family, now imagine police knowing exactly who you are and the names and ages of every family member.

But wait it gets worse, because the surveillance doesn't stop there.

Once you have entered the restaurant, police can use Project Green Light, Project Nola or any other police cam-share program to spy on you while you are eating.

The above video warns everyone that police smartphones could store up to one million faces and their laptops could have access to 50 million faces. (To find out more about police facial recognition smartphones click here.)

What makes this video truly frightening is how it reveals that a police department's server could have access to a staggering one billion faces! There aren't even close to one billion people in the U.S., so why would a police department need access to that many faces? (Look for the answer below.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF any governmental, or policing, website, wants to know what I am thinking, they only have to read my posts on Mike's blog! :-)

I am a Christian Pacifist Activist, meaning that I am constantly, gently, exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical differences with moral, rational, hard-won negotiations, rather than through war.

But I have to ask; since when has my position on this....someone who tries to tell the truth as she sees it, advocates logic, and never, ever advocates violence...caused me to be viewed as any kind of a criminal, or enemy of the state to my government?!?

That, my friends... is where this surveillance starts to get really scary.

Neither Mike nor I would willingly hurt a brother or sister human being. So why would we be targets of such surveillance?!? Because we cannot, logically, go along with a government narrative that promotes war as the only answer to this country's problems, at all costs?!?

Sadly, the short answer to the last rhetorical question I have asked, is most certainly, yes.

DHS CONFIRMS PRESENCE OF CELL-SITE SIMULATORS IN U.S. CAPITAL

The Department of Homeland Security has finally confirmed what many security specialists have suspected for years: cell-phone tracking technology known as cell-site simulators (CSS) are being operated by potentially malicious actors in our nation's capital.

DHS doesn't know who's operating them or why, or whether these fake cell towers are installed elsewhere in the country. While EFF has its hunches, one thing is certain: the federal government and cell-service providers have been sitting on their hands for far too long. Now is the time to fix the underlying problems with our worldwide cellular communications infrastructure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the DHS and NSA are impotent to identify these alleged "malicious actors" and stop this?!?

THEN SACK THE LOT, AND RIGHT THE HECK NOW!! There are people in this country far more qualified, and capable, and patriotically motivated, to keep this country safe from this kind of nonsense, and they should be allowed that opportunity

WATCH LIVE: 5 WOUNDED BY LIVE FIRE ALONG GAZAN BORDER AS "GREAT RETURN MARCH" PROTEST BEGINS

After more than 20 Palestinians were killed during protests along the Gaza border fence last Friday, all of whom were subsequently labeled as violent terrorists by the IDF, and hundreds more were wounded (many of them under the age of 18), thousands of Gazans marched to the border for the latest in a series of planned demonstrations leading up to the anniversary of Israel's founding on May 15.

Palestinians have a much different interpretation of that day: For them, it's the anniversary of the Nakba (literally "catastrophe") when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced from their land during the establishment of Israel.

The demonstrations, deemed "the Great Return March" by their organizers, are meant to agitate for "the right of return" - the ability for Palestinians to return to their ancestors' land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Palestinians understand the optics of these demonstrations far better than do their Israeli counterparts.

And because of this, I am very fearful that the next wave of Palestinian demonstrators... may well be women and children.

Hamas, please; do not allow this to happen; the IDF is very keen about exterminating the future of a potential Palestinian state, and the IDF would love nothing more then to have the opportunity to kill Palestinian women and chilren without mercy.

SIX TEENAGERS HAVE BEEN STABBED WITHIN 90 MINUTES IN ANOTHER NIGHT OF VIOLENCE ON LONDON’S STREETS

Six teenagers have been stabbed within 90 minutes in another night of violence on London’s streets.

A 13-year-old boy was among the victims of four separate knife attacks, which took place as protesters gathered elsewhere in the capital to demand action to prevent young people dying.

Earlier, Tottenham MP David Lammy said violence in London was the “worst I’ve ever seen it” and warned there was “absolutely no sign” of an end to the bloodshed following a spate of murders as drugs drive turf wars between gangs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Londonistan, under the watch of Mayor Sidiq Khan, is not faring well at all, with regard to youth violence; and he has got to appear to be doing something, or he will wind up a one-term mayor.

What the UK should be doing, is to follow Portugal's lead, and just pull the rug out from under the drug gangs, by legalizing small amounts of drugs for personal use, but giving people counseling to get them off the drugs.

Portugal’s Example: What Happened After It Decriminalized All Drugs, From Weed to Heroin

Of course, in the UK, that will happen after pigs discover they are aerodynamic, as the cartels managing the street gangs are making too much money, and money fuels both money laundering, which the banks love, and very covertly and quietly, election cycles.

And if you don't believe me, please take a good look at the following image:

HOW GUN CONTROL LAWS FOR “MENTALLY ILL” COULD DISARM THOSE WHO QUESTION AUTHORITY

In the growing debate surrounding the natural right to self-defense, one of the most popular proposed methods of gun control has been restrictions on gun-ownership for those who are deemed to be mentally ill. This is a measure that is often suggested by liberals and conservatives alike, but it is important to stop and consider what something like this might entail.

When any collective group is banned from owning a gun, they are effectively turned into second-class citizens. In the case of mental illness, that classification is so vague and open to interpretation that it could possibly be applied to over half of the population, depending on which criteria you use.

Mental illness can be very hard to identify since there is no kind of official test for most conditions, most people are diagnosed according to the subjective opinions of the doctors that observe them. Even the most severe conditions, like schizophrenia, can be very difficult to identify and is often misdiagnosed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the reality for me, and thinking Americans like me.

I simply understand that the US government has lost its ability for moral, hard-won negotiations as a way in which to resolve its geopolitical differences, and has surrendered these capabiliites to those war hawks in government who believe that war is the only way in which to achieve the US government's agendas, which may well not be the agendas of its hard-working citizens.

Particularly after the US war criminal, President Bush, proclaimed that Iraq's Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction as the "justification" for the war in Iraq, I can never believe anything that the US government has to say again, ever, even if it is about the weather, where sometimes, it just may, possibly, get correctly.

I am thoroughly exasperated that the US government continues to collude with the Saudi government in war crimes in Yemen.

The assassination of innocent non-combatants, including infants, women, and the medically fragile elderly; the attempts at starving of a people into submission, with which the US military assists by blocking Yemeni ports; and the possible introduction of weaponised diseases, such as cholera, and diptheria, are all war crimes.

The US presence in Syria, in order to destablilise the country, and create regime change in Damascus, is unbelievably morally obscene, and makes one realize that President Trump is getting his marching orders on this from Tel Aviv and Netanyahu.

It is a known reality that the US government has armed and trained armed mercs to attempt to destabilise the country. The US military has "dug in", and shows no sign of leaving soon, even though President Trump has made noises in that direction.

This is not a President in control of his government.

All of the above are facts, not conspiracies.

I would like to be hopeful about the allegedly upcoming summits with North Korea and potentially, Russia; but given the US government's history in the 21st Century, I can only believe that they will be of value to ratcheting down international tensions when I see it.

Soon-To-Be Ex-Teacher Sick Of Parents Who Coddle And Enable Their Kids Reveals What Was The Last Straw

Julie Marburger, a sixth-grade teacher at Cedar Creek Intermediate School, is at her wits end in the profession that she previously had such a passion for. “It has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember to have a classroom of my own,” she wrote. “And now my heart is broken to have become so disillusioned in these short two years.” She has already made the decision to quit teaching, and eloquently outlines why in a desperate and passionate post about the shortcomings of parents, administrators and government support.

Her post has resonated with many people, being shared almost 400,000 times over social media and prompting an outpouring of support and sympathy from fellow teachers who are also struggling to cope. Julie believes that teachers are leaving the profession “in droves” and there is a major crisis looming in the education system unless something changes soon.

HERE’S WHY ZUCKERBERG WON’T LOSE HIS JOB ANY TIME SOON

Equifax, eBay, Yahoo, Target — if you patronize these companies and do business online, there’s a chance your data was exposed in one of the largest breaches of the 21st century. Thinking Facebook should be on that list? Here’s why it’s not.

Facebook is indeed guilty of exposing data about 50 million users without their authorization, but the people who acquired that data didn’t hack a single line of code. Instead, they hacked the system. They used social engineering in the most apropos setting you can imagine: the world’s biggest social network.

The plan worked. It might seem like Facebook is in hot water now, but don’t go looking for sweat on Mark Zuckerberg’s gray T-shirt. The boy-wonder CEO has one hell of a get-out-of-jail-free card.

Stolen, Fair and Square

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be a really good time to leave Facebook, never to return, because it has absolutely betrayed the trust of its users.

The tools are available on line as to how.

25,000 sealed federal criminal indictments: White and Black Hat endgame scenarios

~25,000 sealed federal indictments since October 2017 is 50 times more than usual, and therefore game-changing news seeming to mean one of three sets of facts:
a) .01% arrests for ongoing illegal rogue state empire annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions, OR
b) .01% patriot arrests to remove our voices from revealing the illegal rogue state empire (.01% = ~30,000 Americans), OR
c) yet another disinformation rogue state PSYOP to waste patriots time and energy.

It's Not a Conspiracy Anymore; Public Belief in 'Deep State' Soars

the Monmouth University Polling Institute released the results of a survey that found that "a large bipartisan majority ... feel that national policy is being manipulated or directed by a 'Deep State' of unelected government officials ..." According to the survey:"... six-in-ten Americans (60%) feel that unelected or appointed government officials have too much influence in determining federal policy ... The survey appears to confirm that democracy in the United States is largely a sham ... The data suggest that representative democracy is a largely a fraud, that congressmen and senators are mostly sock-puppets who do the bidding of wealthy powerbrokers, and that the entire system is impervious to the will of the people. These are pretty damning results and a clear indication of how corrupt the system really is.

A Special Relationship Born in Hell

America's enabling of the brutal reality that is today's Israel makes it fully complicit in the war crimes carried out against the helpless and hapless Palestinian people. So where was the outrage in the American media about the massacre of civilians? Characteristically, Israel portrays itself as somehow a victim and the U.S. media, when it bothers to report about dead Palestinians at all, picks up on that line. The Jewish State is portrayed as always endangered and struggling to survive ... There is no net gain for the United States in continuing the lopsided and essentially immoral relationship with the self-styled Jewish State. There is no enhancement of American national security, quite the contrary, and there remains only the sad realization that the blood of many innocent people is, to a considerable extent, on our hands.

Israeli Army’s Lies Can No Longer Salvage Its Image

It is has been a very bad week for those claiming Israel has the most moral army in the world. Here's a small sample of abuses of Palestinians in recent days in which the Israeli army was caught lying ... A half-century of occupation has not only corrupted generations of teenage Israeli soldiers who have been allowed to lord it over Palestinians. It has also needed an industry of lies and self-deceptions to make sure the consciences of Israelis are never clouded by a moment of doubt - that maybe their army is not so moral after all.

A brief, unhappy history of Israeli massacres

If you look over Israel's history, you find that the massacre has been a ready tool in the Israeli war-chest; and Israelis have not been prosecuted for carrying them out. Indeed, a couple of those responsible later became prime minister! Here, largely from my own memory, is a rapidly-assembled list of massacres, defined by Webster's as the killing of a "number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty" (and yes, a couple precede the birth of the state).

ISRAEL IS PREPARED TO KILL MORE UNARMED PROTESTERS IN GAZA

Israel’s army expects up to 50,000 Palestinians to attend protests in Gaza on Friday, and is prepared to once again use deadly force against unarmed demonstrators, one week after Israeli snipers fired at least 650 bullets at Palestinian civilians, killing 15. With President Donald Trump apparently ignoring last week’s massacre in a phone call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, senior Israeli officials brushed off pleas from human rights groups to rescind orders that permit snipers to open fire on protesters who approach Israel’s perimeter fence.

Crazy California State Senator Proposes Bill Regulating Internet Content & 'False Information'

A California Democrat who authored SB277, the notorious law which eliminated non-medical vaccine exemptions for California's public schoolchildren, is at it again. State Senator Richard Pan, a 52-year-old pediatritian and Harvard graduate from the Sacramento area, introduced SB-1424, which states, in part, "This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information."

Male voice choir is told it must let women join

The push for gender equality has forced many men to change their tune. Now it has gone beyond golf clubs and dinner societies to target a male voice choir.

Members of the Derbyshire Constabulary choir decried political correctness yesterday after the area’s chief constable severed all ties with them.

Peter Goodman, who took over the force last summer, had told the choir to accept women or face losing its 60-year association with the police service. After concluding that a mixed group would take years to establish, the choir said that it would change its name later this year to the Derbyshire Community Male Voice Choir.
