Rude Awakenings

Reaper drops first precision-guided bomb, protects ground forces

An extraordinary look inside a drone-bombed home; Rude Awakenings was written by simmbiosis

 

… by  Snordster

 

 

Then I remember: Certain governments fly unmanned aircraft over residential areas and bomb houses where people they suspect of opposing them might be. Apparently, they were in the neighborhood and decided to drop by. While I didn’t really care one way or the other about them before, I think you can say I number myself among their growing opposition now.”

  1. John very interesting what you say but perhaps this disconnect is a good thing and of great survival benefit- why think/ponder depressive things throughout the day. It is better for one’s spirit to dissociate but for those who are on the receiving end of misfortune- war trauma, etc, it takes a heck of an effort to put it all aside.
    There does not seem to be a whole lot of parades out there for Iraq. I have encountered too many Army vets who don’t find positive meaning in what they have gone through. I don’t think another Wall in DC will restore the meaning in many vets lives. Of course, the Palestinians, Iraqis and many others must spend every day trying to put a lot of meaning into things.

  2. I largely agree with L. Dickerson. May I offer this Declaration for your consideration?

  3. The narrator speaking for the man whose house was destroyed and whose wife was killed said “…trying to make sense of it”. Many of us know that most of these drone attacks (with their “collateral damage”) do not make sense just as when the Israelis perform their nakbas on Palestinians. But the majority of Americans don’t seem to understand the reality of losing everything important that makes life worth living. I still think that these wars since 9-11 and then the NATO bombings during the “Arab spring” and then and now the ongoing drone attacks are seen by most Americans as something akin to a professional football game and /or proper revenge for what happened on 9-11.
    The reality of what has truly occurred does not penetrate. But for most readers of VT, the reality penetrates.
    It is common sense what Solzhenitsyn wrote many years ago “what if it were you” (undergoing terror , pain, and suffering).
    A mystic who I thoroughly researched and feel passes the hardest tests for legitimacy, the Italian Padre Pio, once told a very intelligent man that what some perceive as the devil in the world- that yes, these devils are all around. (Take a crowd of thousands and their may be hundreds of devils).

    When someone has lost what is most important- flesh and family- it again says something like- if there is a loving God, why are these things permitted.

  4. and tomorrow that house could be mine …. or yours…. because we leave fingerprints on VT who knows? ….. or just because ….. who knows? ….. I don’t think there has at any time, we have records of, been a regime more deadly that the USA. …. fortunately for mankind there is today Russia and China and Iran who all exhibit restraint, sanity, and determination. Fortunately….and then there are the natural laws … it is now only a matter of time before USA implode.

  5. yes, and they’ve even said they dont care if you’re an American, isnt TERRORISM cuz they said so!
    they have been exposed as funding their terrorist “brothers”, from Mexican drug cartels to mercenary invaders calling themselves “freedom fighters” in Libya, Syria, etc.. but they are not arrested. they wrote “laws” against supporting or funding terrorists, but its never terrorism when THEY do it, especially their own staged false flag terrorist acts, even when they are exposed for being so blatant.

    • yes they re-write the laws faster than they change their knickers.

      They determine what is ‘taught’ in schools thru to looneyversity

      They control ‘sickness’ parameters and call it ‘health’

      They glorify war, hero worshiping the courageous but dead warriors, while the living vets are too often the walking wounded/dead.

      And we are seen as the looneys.

      o God it is all so sickening

      But keep your passion alive captain obvious.

  6. life does not get ruder than this
    and even here in Oz,
    drones are on the way.

    I was devastated when I first saw the pictures on Hang the Bankers
    Children of the Drone

    devastated is not the word

    little children turned to dust

    and Obama and Cameron and Gillard/Rudd et al are bringing these monstrosities home.

    We SHOULD ALL BE UP IN ARMS with an intent to victory for once and for all

    Instead, the Governor of the Central Bank and his side-kick Le Grande are centre stage in Sydney tomorrow
    and people like myself would be thrown in jail for whacky do behaviour, should I speak out in the public arena otherwise infested with grovelling media hacks.

    I speak out anyway.
    Thank you simmbiosis and Snordster

    • as they oppress everyone while at the same time claiming to be “leaders of the free world”.. HAH!!
      from my simplistic perspective first they disarmed everyone, then they got rid of jobs to render everyone “dime a dozen” and tax the hell out of anyone left that is still somehow employed afterwards.
      no treasonous economic sabotages at all because they said so, right? same as they have done and are doing to Canada, New Zealand, the USA, England, and everyone else they “OWN”. they tried to to it to Iceland, starving the people while trying to call it a “terrorist nation” for daring resist bankster fraud.

      • Look at the late 20’s and early 30″s in Germany. They went from starving to highly productive when Germany issued it’s own currency. We need a US Treasury Dollar that is limited in number to stop the runaway FED/US govt. (and private) debt dollar from self destructing.

  7. 7 banksters to date have topped themselves John and lawrencedickerson.

    Do you read Les Visible? He is a precious contributor and ‘on the money’, which in this context is a dreadful cliche.
    Somehow, I am not sorry ;-)
