That's war. In short, when hostilities start, it tends to get ugly. If Mexicans from mexico were to fire rockets into San Diego, which was won in a war by the USA, what do you think the US is going to do? Just saying.
Israel is a tiny country surrounded by enemies sworn to Israel's destruction. Israel does hit hard. It has to. The attack in London is an example of radical islamic fanatics hell bent on killing westerners.
yes, poor tiny country surrounded by enemies but has enough resources to go terrorize guatemalans, 1000's of miles away
strange isn't it what a poor tiny country is capable of.

In an interview on Thursday, Ben-Menashe said the Israelis supplied a total of six helicopters to the Guatemalans along with computers and software to keep track of alleged subversives who could then be identified and executed. Ben-Menashe said he learned of the mass slaughters during his travels to Guatemala and reported back to his Israeli superiors about the atrocities involving the equipment that they had authorized. The response, he said, was concern but inaction.



“They weren’t for killing these people, not at all,” Ben-Menashe said.“But they thought their interest was to help the Reagan people. If the Reagan people wanted it [the equipment sent to Guatemala], they would do it.[They thought,]‘this is bad, but is it any of our business? Our American friends are asking for our help, so we should help them.’”

After our phone interview had ended, Ben-Menashe called me back to stress that the Israelis were unaware of the genocidal nature of the Guatemalan military campaigns

just mass murders, not genocide!! cute explanation of how israelis are not guilty, but still and always the victims

That video excerpt shows how hopeless it is to deal with this garbage. He looked like he just killed a goat for supper. Islam always justifies murder. You are 100% right on your assessment of these animals. I tried real hard to see something of value to this species. Nothing. Only Nazi Gray can see any redeeming features, but it's always at the expense of Israeli's. So he/she don't count. Stories like these are not made up. Stay alert. Looking like Syria is ready to test the waters of war, again. The bright side? You don't have to go into Lebanon to find the rats of Hezbollah.
yes, compare this to the high civilization of US-israel

Death Lists

From first-hand reporting in Guatemala, journalist Nairn also observed the security advantages gained from detailed death lists. Nairn said soldiers under Gen. Otto Perez Molina, the current president,“described how they would go into town armed with death lists provided them by G2 military intelligence, death lists of people who were suspected of being collaborators of the guerrillas or critics of the army.

“They told how they would strangle people with lassos, slit women open with machetes, shoot people in the head in front of the neighbors, use U.S. planes, helicopters and 50 gram bombs to attack people if they fled into the hills.”

Nairn said,“The U.S. had also arranged for Israel to step in and become the principal supplier of hardware to the Guatemalan army, in particular assault rifles, the Galil automatic rifle. This was because the administration was running into problems with Congress, which wouldn’t go along with a lot of their plans to aid the Guatemalan military, so they did an end run by using the government of Israel.”

Israel’s Hand in Guatemala’s Genocide. May 23, 2013 By Robert Parry
The Guatemalan genocide of the 1980s does not just implicate President Ronald Reagan and his senior aides but the Israeli government which secretly supplied helicopters, guns and computers that were used to hunt down and exterminate Ixil Indians and other perceived enemies of the state
At the height of Guatemala’s mass slaughters in the 1980s, including genocide against the Ixil Indians, the Reagan administration worked with Israeli officials to provide helicopters that the Guatemalan army used to hunt down fleeing villagers, according to documentary and eyewitness evidence.
During testimony at the recent genocide trial of former Guatemalan dictator Efrain Rios Montt, one surprise was how often massacre survivors cited the Army’s use of helicopters in the scorched-earth offensives.
Journalist Allan Nairn, who covered the war in Guatemala and attended the Rios Montt trial, said in an interview,“one interesting thing that came out in the trial, as witness after witness testified, was a very substantial number of them talked about fleeing into the mountains and being bombed, attacked and machine gunned from U.S. planes and helicopters.
“At the time this was going on, I was aware this was happening in some cases, but from the testimony of the witnesses, it sounded like these attacks from U.S. planes and helicopters were more frequent than we realized at the time. That’s an example of how we don’t know the whole story yet – how extensive the U.S. complicity was in these crimes.”
Pary of the mystery was where did Guatemala’s UH-1H “Huey” helicopters come from, since the U.S. Congress continued to resist military sales to Guatemala because of its wretched human rights record. The answer appears to be that some helicopters were arranged secretly by President Ronald Reagan’s National Security Council staff through Israeli intelligence networks.
Rios Montt began pressing the United States for 10 UH-1H helicopters in June 1983, as his military campaign was ramping up. Since Guatemala lacked the U.S. Foreign Military Sales credits or the cash to buy the helicopters, Reagan’s national security team looked for unconventional ways to arrange the delivery of the equipment.
On Aug. 1, 1983, NSC aides Oliver North and Alfonso Sapia-Bosch reported to National Security Advisor William P. Clark that his deputy Robert “Bud” McFarlane was planning to exploit his Israeli channels to secure the helicopters for Guatemala, according to a document that I discovered at Reagan’s presidential library.

Nothing can distract from the brutal murder of Muslims by Muslims

State forces and militias loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stormed the coastal village of Baida on Thursday, killing at least 50 people including women and children, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The pro-opposition monitoring group said the final death toll was likely to exceed 100. Many of those killed appeared to have been executed by shooting or stabbing, it said, and other bodies were found burned.

Photos and videos are emerging from Syria of dozens of innocent men, women and children brutally murdered by Syrian militia gangs in Baniyas. The photos, pixilated due to their horrific and graphic nature shows bodies shot, stabbed and burned, lying in the village streets.

Some children are shown lying in pools of blood. Another toddler was covered in burns, her clothes singed and her legs charred. Some of the women victims were mutilated.

At least 77 people - 20 from the same family - were killed, a day after 72 died in nearby Bayda. Assad's regime claimed it had fought back against "terrorist groups" and restored peace and security to the area.

Hey, leave Henry alone...he's busy arguing with 2009. Know what you can do to make this a better place (besides thinking every once in a while)? You could post a link to the article you are citing, that way we're all on the same page.

You kind of missed the mark on all the Iran/Contra problems, didn't you? Guatemalan Mayans were purely collateral damage during an otherwise successful anti-communist campaign in Central America. You may want to rethink your anti APAC rant. At least with that you showed some familiarity with the subject.

Thanks Waleed, if it weren't for you keeping us on-topic, Grey would probably lose his mind over all the Iran/Contra gossip.

suzu doesn't give a sh!t about any of that stuff. This fat Jew hater just stops by hoping to talk to a real live Jew. Something the POS would never do in person. He/she will go back to the beginning of time to make his/her case against Jews. As neighbors, I have offered to console her/him in his/her time of need. But, alas, a face to face will not happen as that would require stepping out from behind that laptop and anonymity.

Since "Veterans Today" quite literally epitomizes the definition of "disinformation", and because I want to save you time, energy, and frustration, I've done the bulk of research in order to hopefully demonstrate why trusting "Veterans Today" may not be the best idea.

Is it me? Am I unreasonable when I ask if you are trying to make an argument, that you also present your supporting documentation?

It's reassuring to know there are others out there who recognize Grey's unimpeachable sources for what they are. If the internet had rest rooms, his supporting sites would be found on a roll hanging inside the stalls.

Is it you? Are you you? It's more work for us that are interested in the source, but google is amazing tool for locating sources. I found Fatso's garbage immediately. It also paints a picture of what these morons read for entertainment, hence their character. Although, Plate-In-The-Head was easy to figure out from the Gitgo.

Her's is a sublime sense of humor. I wish we were more interesting...give her a reason to stick around.

P.S. Elvis was the ONLY gunman on the grassy noll. The other guy was in the book depository across the street. I know a trick question when I see one.
