Why Is It Ok For Israel (ANYONE) To Kill?

U.S. seeks ship to move arms to Israel
By Stefano Ambrogi

LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S. is seeking to hire a merchant ship to deliver hundreds of tons of arms to Israel from Greece later this month, tender documents seen by Reuters show.

The U.S. Navy's Military Sea lift Command (MSC) said the ship was to carry 325 standard 20-foot containers of what is listed as "ammunition" on two separate journeys from the Greekport of Astakos to the Israeli port of Ashdod in mid-to-late January.

A "hazardous material" designation on the manifest mentions explosive substances and detonators, but no other details were given.

"Shipping 3,000-odd tons of ammunition in one go is a lot," one broker said, on condition of anonymity.

"This (kind of request) is pretty rare and we haven't seen much of it quoted in the market over the years," he added.

The U.S. Defense Department, contacted by Reuters on Friday in Washington, had no immediate comment.

The MSC transports amour and military supplies for the U.S. armed forces aboard its own fleet, but regularly hires merchant ships if logistics so require.

The request for the ship was made on December 31, with the first leg of the charter to arrive no later than January 25 and the second at the end of the month. Continued...

Why is it OK for Israel (for anyone) to kill?

I am saddened by what is going on in the Gaza strip. Israel’s, killing, maiming of innocent children, hardly qualifies under the axiom of "THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS". What end? It seems there's no end, only beginnings for more mayhem. Technological war, blitzkrieg itself, just perpetuates the disquiet and thus, allows no healing, only relapse.

During his visit to Israel on July 2008, President-elect Barack Obama told the media: “If somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep, I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that. I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.” However, on the slaughter of Palestinian children by Israeli forces, Obama has failed to condemn Israel and seems to espouse sickening contradictions.

There is so much depravity in this world perpetrated by man on man. We are supposed to be the intelligent animal. Will we ever start using that intelligence? Dismally, I think not. thinkingblue

PS: If the Palestinians were launching a blitzkrieg upon Israel and innocent Israeli children were being slaughtered with the help of a Super Power, I would feel as appalled. No one is in the right here, only wrong is going on. It is wrong to kill, it is especially wrong to kill innocent children who did not ask to be born into insanity. There are no words for the gloom that's happening, it should not be taking place and should end. But if everyone looks away, worse, condones it, these macabre wrongs will never be righted and the guiltless will go on suffering, deeply paying for the inanity of those who are suppose to protect them. The silly sophomoric,” IT’S YOUR FAULT, NO IT’S YOUR FAULT, MOST ASSUREDLY IT’S THEIR FAULT”, doesn’t work any more! If we care anything about our planet, if we care anything about our children, we must all seek ways to end the savagery.
