Returning players deepening Packers roster

Go Pack!

140731-sherrod-300GREEN BAY–An already deep roster is getting deeper.

“Derek Sherrod is fully recovered. You can see that. He just needs to play. He needs to practice. He needs a full training camp,” Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said of the team’s 2011 first-round draft pick, whose career up to this point has been derailed by a broken leg he sustained late in his rookie season. Sherrod’s recovery further deepens an offensive line that also welcomes back Bryan Bulaga following a season lost to knee surgery.

“It was good to get Nick (Perry) back out there. You can’t have enough really good football players,” McCarthy added of the team’s 2012 first-round pick, who particiated in his first practice on Thursday since last season. The first two seasons of Perry’s career have also been compromised by injury.

Add to the list of returning talent safety Sean Richardson, who missed most of last season with a…

Uncle Sam is resupplying Israel with more ammunition and bombs

According to Stars and Stripes the US government (Barack Obama and crew) is shipping a resupply of ammunition and bombs to Israel. Isn’t that hypocritical? Obama and Kerry demanding a cease fire at the same time they are resupplying their client with more ammunition and bombs? Why on God’s green Earth would the Palestinians EVER TRUST any American government?

WASHINGTON — As conflict continues between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, the Department of Defense has released arms to Israel from a weapons stockpile maintained within the borders of the close U.S. ally, a defense official confirmed Wednesday.

The ammunition sale from the weapons stockpile, established in the 1990s for use by both countries in case of emergency, took place within the last week, following three weeks of battle between the Israeli military and Hamas militants in Gaza.

More than 1,300 people, the vast majority Palestinians, have been killed since Israel began launching airstrikes and ground incursions in response to continuous missile fire from Gaza.

Israel can make emergency requests for immediate release of arms from the stockpile that are contingent upon presidential approval.

Instead, the United States elected to supply 120mm mortar shells and 40mm grenades from the stockpile because the arms were approaching the date they would require replacement, he said. Israel regularly buys such ammunition when the United States rotates its stocks, he said, and the United States would meanwhile send new ammunition to refresh the stockpile.

The real question is, “Haven’t they, Israel and Uncle Sam, destroyed and killed enough this month?” Oh ya, I forgot that the month is ending. It’s time to reload since a new quota period is about to begin.

Honestly, where in the world is the morality of these two governments? This is just sickening. Americans, wake up to what the government is doing on your behalf and with your tax dollars.

 

US is No Safer After 13 Years of War, a Top Pentagon Official Says

Mike:

What’s the word for “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”?

The outgoing head of the Defense Intelligence Agency says that new players on the scene are more radical than Al Qaeda, and the core Al Qaeda ideology has lost none of its potency.

The nation is no safer after 13 years of war, warns a top US military official who leads one of the nation’s largest intelligence organizations.

“We have a whole gang of new actors out there that are far more extreme than Al Qaeda,” says Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which employs some 17,000 American intelligence collectors in 140 countries around the world.

Gaza: A human tragedy

Mike:

In case you’d forgotten that America’s “friend” is still busy making friends for us. Feeling safer?

2014720123856518734_20Boom! It’s 3:05 am. We wake up for suhour, the pre-dawn meal in Ramadan, after a long and horrifying night made worse by the thick presence of Israeli surveillance drones in Gaza’s sky. Friends on my Facebook newsfeed complain of sleep deprivation and continuing Israeli air strikes around them. The radio has a bad signal, so I turn it off. My two-and-a-half-year-old niece flinches as a deafening explosion strikes a nearby area. Her forefinger pointed upwards, she exclaims, “wawa!” (a colloquial Arabic word babies use to say they are in pain).

On July 7, Palestinians found themselves in the throes of yet another Israeli aggression. Thirteen days into the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, over 400 Palestinians have been killed, most of them civilians. At least 77 children are among the dead. Thousands of people have been injured and over 50,000 displaced. Some 15,000 houses have been destroyed or severely damaged…

Those who carry out this violence, and those who sponsor this inhumanity, have much for which to account.

Gaza, Israel and ‘Human Shields’

Mike:

Terrific points from Ms Gillespie. You won’t read or hear any of this in the main stream media.

What does it mean to use human shields? Employed by the Germans and Japanese in the second word war, the tactic is premised on an underlying trust in your enemy’s humanity. It appeals to the compassion and mercy of the combatant that they not slaughter the innocent in order to avenge their target. The ‘shield’ is not the human bodies surrounding the ‘guilty’ party, the shield is the clemency that mankind instinctively affords the innocent. The shield evaporates only when confronted by an enemy who is not merely a fellow solder locked in a power battle, but a psychopath unconcerned with the pain of others. Such is the case with the Hamas. They are faced with an enemy who is willing to obliterate pregnant women, babies, kids, handicapped people, schools and crowded hospitals in order to smash their target. The Israelis repeatedly demonstrate a pathological disregard for…
