Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin spoke with his Israeli counterpart on Wednesday amid Israel’s new bombing campaign in Gaza and reaffirmed the US’s “ironclad commitment” to Israel.

“Secretary Austin conveyed the Department’s ironclad support for Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself and its people, and he strongly condemned the launching of rockets by Hamas and other terrorists groups that targeted Israeli civilians,” the Pentagon said in a readout of the call.

The US has failed to condemn or even really address the Palestinian children that have been killed by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza. Austin also “reiterated the importance of all involved parties to take steps to restore calm.” But Israel appears to be set on escalating the situation and has rejected a truce offer from Hamas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, how soon will the US be bombing Gaza, killing women, children, the medically fragile elderly, and bombing hospitals and schools?!?

And if you do not think this is a real possibility, you have not been paying attention: the US military is still doing this in Yemen as I type this.

HEY, WAR CRIMES ARE US!!!!
