Israel could not commit mass murder in Gaza without US bombs.
Benjamin Netanyahu has admitted this when he told a group of local government officials, ‘We need three things from the US: munitions, munitions, munitions.’
The bombs have wrecked more destruction on the tiny area of Gaza than all the carpet bombing of Germany during the last years long carpet bombing of Germany during WW2.
Robert Pape, a US military historian and author of Bombing to Win, a landmark survey of 20th century bombing campaigns has said, ‘Gaza will also go down as a place name denoting one of history’s heaviest conventional bombing campaigns’.
The US has supplied Israel with earth-shaking 2,000lb GBU-31 bombs, which are four times bigger than the 500lb bombs that were typically the largest ordinance. It has also sent tens of thousands of artillery shells.
By any measure, Gaza is already a high civilian punishment campaign,” said military historian Pape. “It will go down in history as one of the heaviest ever undertaken with conventional weapons.”
Truly, Joe Biden has blood on his hands. It is high time to close Shannon Airport to the US military.
