Thank you, Soldiers, for defending our American Free Speech!

Thank you, Soldiers, for defending our Free Speech! You all military sweethearts are doing such a damn good job, too! Here is a you tube film of you USA soldiers going about your hard work protecting our American Free Speech rights. Love you, Storm Troopers and Snipers, Drone Mechanics, and Nuclear Weapons people! Love you DEARLY. Pacifist Kathy Kelly at Whiteman (funny the name, ay?) AFB.

Why do they kill? Who orders the killing? Why do the grunts do what they do?

“Who has given the license to kill and in what court? Who has declared that they can hit anyone they like?”   “How many ‘high level targets’ could there possibly be?”   “What kind of democracy is America,” Safdar asks, “where people do not ask these questions?”   From Kathy Kelly's commentary on CounterPunch today “All of us ask, ‘Why?’ They kill people with computers and they can’t tell us why." They also kill people with plain old fashioned bombs and guns too. Why does the US occupy Afghanistan? Why do the American people mainly sit passively by like a herd of sheep?

Freedom Flotilla II faces Shayetet13 in showdown at the naval siege of Gaza

It promises to be quite a showdown. Israel has repeated that it will let no ship through to Gaza, the IDF has promised "surprises" for the would-be blockade-runners, while this relief convoy is upping the ante with luminaries political and literary. The US boat is carrying novelist Alice Walker and a who's who of peace activists, no less than Medea Benjamin, Kathy Kelly, Ray McGovern, and Ann Wright. There will be journalists from CBS, CNN and NPR, so you'd think Israel wouldn't dare jam their signal and superimpose its own news package like it did with the Mavi Marmara, but maybe it won't have to. 24699

I am the soldier who slept in your home.

When Voices For Creative Nonviolence activist Kathy Kelly visited Colorado Springs, she spoke of survivors of a family in Gaza who returned to their home to find a message left etched on their wall by an IDF soldier, it read "Sorry." Kelly saw in it the glimmer of hope that Israeli soldiers were beginning to show some humanity. Hasbara efforts have taken this gesture a reservist's letter step further. You can read it below uncut. Does it look to you like these propagandists need some counseling advice? Probably the rapist is the last person who should be asking his victim to be calm, especially by recounting the details of the violation, and especially if the rapist is unrepentant and laying out the justification for his act. Parental Advisory: Graphic Insensitivity. 6534

American pacifist Kathy Kelly reports from Gaza

"Yet, all the world helps after an earthquake," said a doctor at the Shifaa hospital in Gaza. "We feel very frustrated," he continued. "The West, Europe and the U.S., watched this killing go on for 22 days, as though they were watching a movie, watching the killing of women and children without doing anything to stop it. I was expecting to die at any moment. I held my babies and expected to die. There was no safe place in Gaza." 6199
