Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

WAR OF TERROR ON SYRIA  – THIRD ANNIVERSARY

Syria: Tens of thousands slaughtered, more than 9 million displaced

On the third anniversary of war of terror waged by Saudi Arabia and Israel against the Syrian people, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, said: “three years have passed on this horrible Syrian crisis and that means more displaced people to expect. Today we have around 2.6 million Syrians displaced to neighboring countries and more than 6.5 million Syrians displaced inside Syria.”

Guterres expressed his gratitude to the “generosity of the Lebanese and the government of Lebanon,” for hosting most of the displaced Syrian refugees.

He called on the international community to “show more solidarity with Lebanon and provide financial support and share with it the burden because Lebanon cannot be left alone to confront the big challenges in these hard conditions.”

Meantime, Israeli forces continued shelling the Lebanese-Syrian border.

Return of Polio

In October 2013, an outbreak of polio was reported in Syria, more than a decade after the disease had been eradicated from the country.

The Irish Famine Killed One Million

Posted by feww on March 15, 2014

THE GREAT HUNGER OF THE 1840s
THE EMPIRE AND THE POTATO BLIGHT
.

Sick Politicians, Diseased Crops

More than one million Irish people starved to death and another million emigrated from Ireland during the The Great Irish Famine (an Gorta Mór) between 1845 and 1852.

The Great Hunger, which saw about 25 percent of the island’s population disappear, is also known as as the Irish Potato Famine because more than one-third of the population was then solely reliant on the cheap crop, which was decimated by a blight.

Ironically, Ireland  was still producing and exporting more than enough grain crops to feed the entire population. Up to fifty shiploads of food produce left the country each day.

Today, the Great Famine is regarded by many historical academics as an act of either direct or indirect genocide.

Famine dead had ‘mouths stained green’

The Famine dead are remembered in the Irish folk as having mouths stained green—their last meal was grass.
