Hello London, Hello London. Warships hailing convoy in international waters


AT 23:00GMT, two Israeli ships are approaching IHH Mavi Marmara, drones heard overhead, satellite connection becoming interrupted. Passengers have donned life jackets, some prepare gas masks, maybe equipment Israel may prefer not reach Gaza. Descending on Freedom Flotilla: one large destroyer is visible, three total on radar. Challenger I reports being contacted as well. Blinking lights of something hovering above. Abbas Al Lawati writing from Marmara.
UPDATE: Inflatables approaching ship as communications cease.

Last tweets from ShiptoGaza-Greece aboard Eleftheri Mesogeios:

    Well, here’s where the Empire dies. Massed troops in Afghanistan, readied for the spring offensive, with of course only 3 weeks left of spring. Pranking with North Korea, both of which are on the borders of China. And the stated aim or one of the stated aims of the PNAC bastards who organized the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq was to divert the world oil trade to “the West” and away from China. Add India into the picture with, as was pointed out 4 years ago, has 80 million more Radical Muslims than Iran and unlike Iran HAS verified Nuclear Weapons. How very swell.
    Also China has Nukes, a large border including Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Just the thought of nukes flying close to their border is going to introduce some drastic measures..

    We also happen to owe them a massive amount of Bond funds, sold to hide the Tax that we’ll owe for another couple of decades to fund the war.

    At this point a blatantly “Client” aka Puppet State throws its American Provided 4th largest military in the world into the meatgrinder. Perfect storm.

    Of course America and the rest of NATO are bankrupted by The Wars more than any other factor, that’s what breaks us.

    Because the Rich aren’t going to accept being broken without taking out “their” workforce/consumer base first.

    I’ve never lived on the Rez before. Wonder if whoever takes over the management of our corner of the Former Empire are going to have a Rez f or us
