Monsters at the End of a War

By: Sunday August 17, 2014 4:00 pm

August 15 was the end of World War II in Asia, 69 years ago, following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

I could not find a single reference to the bombings, or to the end of the war itself, anywhere in the American media. Even the Yazidis in Iraq, a big story a week ago, had yielded to the death of Robin Williams, who gave up his place at the top of the news to the shooting of a young African-American man in Missouri. There may be something else dominating the national agenda by the time you read this.

 

On Gaza, Key Israelis Speak of Ethnic Cleansing and Mass Killing

By: Tuesday July 8, 2014 5:46 pm

Found this remarkable comment by 46nd2 under a CNN article on the latest Israeli air strikes on Gaza, mostly on civilians and government officials. (At least 13 have died so far, all but two apparently civilians.)
