Cavitation

"Think the Bosnia Conflict Was a Civil War?" (Short).  "New war".  Various imperialist tools.

"What I Saw Treating the Victims From Parkland Should Change the Debate on Guns":
"I have seen a handful of AR-15 injuries in my career. I saw one from a man shot in the back by a SWAT team years ago. The injury along the path of the bullet from an AR-15 is vastly different from a low-velocity handgun injury. The bullet from an AR-15 passes through the body like a cigarette boat travelling at maximum speed through a tiny canal. The tissue next to the bullet is elastic—moving away from the bullet like waves of water displaced by the boat—and then returns and settles back. This process is called cavitation; it leaves the displaced tissue damaged or killed. The high-velocity bullet causes a swath of tissue damage that extends several inches from its path. It does not have to actually hit an artery to damage it and cause catastrophic bleeding. Exit wounds can be the size of an orange.

With an AR-15, the shooter does not have to be particularly accurate. The victim does not have to be unlucky. If a victim takes a direct hit to the liver from an AR-15, the damage is far graver than that of a simple handgun shot injury. Handgun injuries to the liver are generally survivable unless the bullet hits the main blood supply to the liver. An AR-15 bullet wound to the middle of the liver would cause so much bleeding that the patient would likely never make it to a trauma center to receive our care."
Of course, this kind of argument would have no effect on a 'patriot' who fantasizes himself using his weapons and ammo defending 'liberty' in a Waco-like situation against an evil government.

"Their Meddlers and Ours" (Levine):
"It is relevant too that the American penchant for maintaining double standards has been conspicuously on display in recent years.  The consensus view about the 2016 election and others before it is that, of course, Benjamin Netanyahu’s meddling posed no problem, while the very thought that Putin might have entertained such an idea sparks outrage.

Were those two judged by the same standards, Netanyahu would come off worse by far.

Also, for anyone viewing the situation impartially, there could hardly be any doubt that actual Israeli meddling has been more harmful to the United States than anything the Russians are alleged to have done.  Israel was a strong backer of the Bush-Cheney wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; and the Israelis are working overtime now to drag the United States into a war with Iran.

It would be hard to imagine a more reckless idea.  The Iraq War brought murder and mayhem and continuing geopolitical instability to the entire region.  The consequences of a war with Iran would be worse by many orders of magnitude."

"‘Truth is the 1st casualty of war’: Syria’s East Ghouta battleground distorted by MSM propaganda".  The bad guys have a serious boy-who-cried-wolf problem, having been to this well so, so many times (this is also hurting the Rohingya, victims lost in the shuffle of so many Imperial-proxy-army promoting 'victims').  It is telling that the UN resolution protected the rights of the terrorist proxy army to continue to terrorize:  "Lavrov: US & allies refuse to amend UN draft to include guarantee militants honor Syria ceasefire".  "Syria - The Two East-Ghouta Campaigns - One Is For Liberation, The Other To Save Terrorists".  I'd really like to know from the imperialist critics of the Syrian government if they think if would be swell if the suburbs of their own capital city - say Washington or London - remained infested with human organ eaters and head-loppers, fully armed by foreigners and dedicated to constant terrorism until the entire country is destroyed.  Yinon is hell on civilians, yes, but that's fully on those who are recklessly virtue-signalling their sudden concern for civilians by propagating White Helmets PR, not on the people who are trying to stop it.

"Do You Believe Her Now?" (Abramson).  The argument that they can now remove him by proving that he lied.  Unfortunately, not going to happen due to Bill Clinton repercussions.

Jewish day school news:" Arizona Teacher Bonnie Verne Says Immigrants Should be Violently Killed".  "Israel agrees to halt deportations of Canada-bound asylum-seekers".  Note the Star's headline is strangely confusing (I'll bet, intentionally so), and shekels are flying in Canada to take much of the load that Israel should be taking (if international law applied to Israel) (my laughing emphasis in red):
 "The Canadian government is under the gun to resettle 1,845 of the African refugees whose sponsorship applications are currently in process, some for years.

“Canada does not support policies of mass deportations of asylum-seekers. The rights of asylum-seekers and refugees are laid out in the Geneva Convention on the Status of Refugees, of which Israel is a signatory,” said Adam Austen, press secretary for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

“As the country that resettles the highest number of African asylum-seekers from Israel, we are in direct contact with the Government of Israel to convey Canada’s concerns about the situation.”


A spokesperson for Immigration Canada confirmed it has reached an agreement with Israeli authorities to allow the Canada-bound asylum-seekers to remain in the country and not be jailed until their sponsorships are finalized."
Darn generous of the Khazars to allow our neo-Nazi foreign minister to express her concerns, just as long as she also takes the shekels and the refugees. "African migrants start hunger strike over Israel expulsion".  You just have to laugh at what the Khazars can get away with armed only with a complete lack of morality and the ability to beshekel foreign officials.

Metaphor.  Read it, you'll see!
