Some impressive statistics on the performance of Bush Jr, Obama and Trump as Presidents of the USA

America's Military Drops A Bomb Every 12 Minutes, And No One Is Talking About It


Authored by Lee Camp via TruthDig.com,
We live in a state of perpetual war, and we never feel it. While you get your gelato at the hip place where they put those cute little mint leaves on the side, someone is being bombed in your name. While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names....

Once every 12 minutes.
The United States military drops an explosive with a strength you can hardly comprehend once every 12 minutes. And that’s odd, because we’re technically at war with—let me think—zero countries. So that should mean zero bombs are being dropped, right?...


But those 70,000 bombs dropped by Bush—it was child’s play. DeGraw again:
“[Obama] dropped 100,000 bombs in seven countries. He out-bombed Bush by 30,000 bombs and 2 countries.”
However, we now know that Donald Trump’s administration puts all previous presidents to shame. The Pentagon’s numbers show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, which is 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. And in Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.

Trump’s military dropped 44,000 bombs in his first year in office.

PS. And America is not at war with any country! All the fighting and bombing were committed in undeclared wars, illegal wars.  Imagine how much money the military industrial complex is making from wars and killings of other people. The Americans are the most peace loving people, the protector of human rights?

Sounds very familiar at home. Though not in terms of bombs but in terms of delusions.

However, the US wages wars and drops bombs to make money.

At home, they spent money, other people's money like no tomorrow. They gamble big time on other people's money in order to make a name for themselves. Then pay themselves by the millions of $$$.

Uncle Sam's military-industrial complex compelled it to wage wars and many countries became guinea pigs for experimenting new weapons. Bush Jr, Obama and Trump are war criminals. They escaped punishment by virtue of the fact that they are leaders of the most powerful nation and need not answer to the world. They deserved to be given a place in history as the modern version of Attila the Hun. Just like him, these war criminals are "Scourges of God" and their names will be cursed and spit upon by civilised people.

Otherwise how to get rid of obsolete bombs?

Small countries cannot buy them and drop on other small countries. They will be punished!

They would not sell to big countries, who after all can make their own.

So dropping them for target practice is the solution.

That is why they owed so much money to the rest of the world!

Guys, jaga baik baik when reading Zero Hedge. Many of us are fans of this site...but it is not to be taken too"seriously". I read it because it is entertaining and hilarious. Sometimes they hit the truth spot on. And they say things which the mainstream finds "uncomfortable".

People make a helluva noise over "conspiratorial content" which Zero Hedge is frequently accused of. I say fuck those assholes. A "conspiracy theory" is nothing but an alternative hypothesis, and you would test it the way you would any claim made by anyone. If you are going to accuse somebody of doing "evil deeds" for fuck's sake write it like you could make a TV series. And Zero Hedge does come up with some beauties. That's one of the reasons they're so popular. They slammed Bank of America. So after that, the pissed off management put up a firewall rule to block Zero Hedge website so that no one on BoA network had access. 😂

Caveat emptor

“Space as a war-fighting domain is the latest obscenity in a long list of vile actions by a vile administration,” writes Linda Pentz Gunter, who specializes in international nuclear issues for the organization Beyond Nuclear, this week. “Space is for wonder. It’s where we live. We are a small dot in the midst of enormity, floating in a dark vastness about which we know a surprising amount, and yet with so much more still mysteriously unknown.”

“A Space Force is not an aspiration unique to the Trump administration, of course,” she continued on the Beyond Nuclear International website of the Takoma Park, Maryland group, “but it feels worse in his reckless hands.”
