Blood Is on the Hands of the U.S. Government

Nov 13, 2023

On November 10, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that “far too many Palestinians have been killed, far too many have suffered in the past weeks” of Israel’s invasion of Gaza.

This is disgusting, despicable hypocrisy! Blinken is the spokesman for the U.S. government, which has enabled the Israeli government in their slaughter of the Palestinians who live in Gaza. They defended Israel’s invasion, saying that Israel had not just the right, but the obligation to invade Gaza. They funded the Israeli government as they fired missiles and dropped bombs on hospitals, schools, and apartment buildings in Gaza. Blinken and the U.S. government watched for weeks as the Israeli military conducted the mass killings of over 11,000 Palestinians—most of whom were not Hamas, but instead were ordinary Palestinians. Over 4,000 of those killed have been children. And now, all of a sudden, Blinken says it is too many killings? When did it become too many? When it went from 3,000 children to 4,000 children??? One is too many!!!

If the U.S. government wanted the killings in Gaza to stop, they have every means to do so. The Israeli government could not conduct this war on Gaza without the military weapons and financial aid they get from the U.S.—about 4 billion dollars a year, over a quarter of a trillion dollars since World War II.

The U.S. government backs up the Israeli government because this regime acts as their policeman in the Middle East. Today, the U.S. government is responsible, just like the Israeli government, for the mass killings in Gaza. The U.S. government has just as much blood on their hands.
