Staring At Starvation

The slow and intentional starvation of Gaza

The people in Gaza are being starved to death. It’s just a medieval siege with modern machinery. It’s barbarism via bureaucracy. It’s not just ‘Israel’, it’s the entire White Empire, America and all its bitches. They’ve cut off funds for the UNRWA that delivers food, while delivering even more bombs to the people literally bombing food supplies. The US Ambassador to the UN openly calls for a ‘final solution’. They are intentionally starving two million people to death, half of them children, while the world watches. While we all watch, helplessly.

In truth, this isn’t even the first starvation White Empire has executed recently. Empire regularly uses food as a weapon, and as a message to those that dare defy it. There was the starvation of Yemen for nearly a decade. The denial of aid to Syria even after a devastating earthquake. The theft of foreign exchange from Afghanistan as they retreated. The genocide of America and the Americas themselves. ‘Israel’ is really just Empire acting as it always does, just more mask-off with its atrocities.

Ever since World War II — when America got away with massive war crimes against civilians — war crimes have been their strategy. They call their ‘strategic bombing’ but it’s really just slaughtering civilians, discriminately. From Dresden to Korea…
