Trigger Point Thursday


Analysis of satellite imagery of a deadly attack on an aid convoy in Syria last month showed that it was an air strike, a UN expert said on Wednesday.

At least 20 people were killed in the attack on the UN and Syrian Arab Red Crescent convoy at Urm al-Kubra near the northern city of Aleppo, which destroyed 18 of 31 lorries, a warehouse and clinic.

The United States blamed two Russian fighter jets that it said were in the skies above the area at the time of the incident. Moscow denies the charge and says the convoy caught fire.

“With our analysis we determined it was an air strike, and I think multiple other sources have said that as well,” Lars Bromley, research adviser at UNOSAT, told a news conference.

    Call it the straw that broke the peacemakers’ back.

    Since we have lost the respect of the World we will be taunted and assaulted.

    Our government, specifically the DOD, has ruined our reputation by invading sovereign countries under the guise of ‘fighting terrorism’. This has made us the terrorists in the eyes of our enemies.

    Like the Roman Empire before us, we will fall and fall hard. No amount of nice can repair what we have destroyed, our reputation, thanks to the over-zealous actions of our DOD. Instead of fighting terrorism we have created even more through our actions.

    You can thank the warhawks for creating this mess, while they sit back cozy and comfortable in their guarded compounds we the people will bear the brunt of their actions as we have all along with infrastructure neglect, poverty neglect and Wall Street robber barons taking what is left after we spent Trillions on illegal wars.

    Shame on you America for allowing wars instead of Peace dominate our reputation. While you are spending money on yourselves, engaging in self-absorbedness, people halfway around the World are dying without reason, enjoy your self indulgence while you can.

    Send a Thank You card to Obomber and the Joint Chiefs for putting us on the road to Hell, and hope they get there before the rest of us.

    Down to the Foundry to check tomorrow’s special, then back to Waddell & Reed for a standup supper of horderves and then back home in 53 minutes.

    Day 5: 245+53=299 minutes.

    Home from the symphonic band concert followed 10 minutes later by the symphonic wind ensemble concert; my eyes leaked tears during “There are no words”, a memorial to the victims of the Orlando massacre. Afterwards talked briefly with Alice, beginning with “You look lovely! If I were more your age I would woo you.” She took it in good stride. I then offered career related suggestions.

    Paid my respects to the conductors and the French horn professor. Also the trumpet professor, who seems to have taken a liking to me.
