USA complicit in Israeli war crimes

How to explain America's actions other than being complicit in and supporting war crimes - the bombing of Gazans in breach of the Geneva Convention let alone human decency.      Here is a situation where almost without fail most civilised nations around the world have, justifiably, condemned Israel's actions in bombing Gaza, killing countless Palestinians, many of whom have been children.   Israel has even bombed UN facilities.   Yet, the USA, despite all of this, has in the last days supplied bombs to Israel for use in Gaza.   Incredible!

"The Pentagon on Wednesday announced its recent approval for unlocking a massive stockpile of ammunition for use by the Israeli Defense Forces who continue to pummel the civilian population living inside the Gaza Strip where the death toll now nears 1,400 people—a majority of whom are civilians, including close to 300 children.

Worldwide condemnation over Israel's attack on Gaza has reached previously unseen levels, but the U.S. government has stated that its commitment to Israel will not waver and that providing weaponry remains standard policy despite accusations that Israel's behavior in Gaza amounts to "war crimes" and international calls for an immediate humanitarian cease-fire.

"The United States is committed to the security of Israel, and it is vital to US national interests to assist Israel to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defence capability," said Pentagon spokesperson Rear Admiral John Kirby as he spoke of the new ammunition shipment. Kirby said the delivery of new U.S. weapons—despite Israeli bombardments on hospitals and emergency shelters that the United Nations has called indicative of "war crimes"—as "consistent with [U.S.] objectives."

According to reports, the Israeli military last week requested access to a "little-known stockpile of ammunition" maintained by the Department of Defense inside Israel for "emergency" purposes.  The sale was approved just three days later on July 23."

So, which are the democratic countries in Europe?

It's probably taken by most that all the countries in Europe are equally democratic. Not so, concludes a survey. Some are more democratic than others.

"Denmark's democracy is in rude health while the political systems of Britain and France have some major shortcomings, according to a new Swiss-German study ranking the quality of democracy in 30 nations. Germany achieves a respectable score but falls short of a top 10 slot.

Germany is more democratic than France, Britain and even Switzerland, according to a study released last week by the University of Zurich and the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB), a research institute funded by the German government.

The 'democracy barometer' measures how well 30 established democracies implement the principles of freedom and equality. Denmark gets top marks, while Britain and France are found wanting, ranking 26th and 27th respectively. Costa Rica came last, just behind South Africa and Poland.

The study spans the …
