Hello! We’re Bombing You in About an Hour

Warmongers like to tell you that they follow bombing etiquette: they notify targets before dropping bombs. As if that makes it okay.

Israel repeatedly says that it notifies Gaza neighborhoods before demolishing them. The U.S. said that they notified Iraqi targets before launching airstrikes last Friday.

Only they didn’t do that. 

When pushed on the matter by The Intercept, a National Security Council spokesperson said this: “For operational security, we did not provide any kind of official pre-notification with specific details on these strikes.”

The strike killed seven civilians. Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani declared three days of mourning.

Why did the U.S. bomb these people? In retaliation for rebel attacks in the Red Sea that had nothing to do with the victims. According to

“In January 2020, Iraq’s parliament voted unanimously to expel US troops in the wake of the US drone strike that killed Iranian Quds Force Gen. Qasem Soleimani and PMF leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. But the US refused to leave and has significant economic leverage over Iraq, making it difficult for an Iraqi prime minister to kick US troops out.”
