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

Posted by feww on October 8, 2017

US War on Afghanistan: “Operation Enduring Freedom” has resulted in hundreds of thousands of causalities at a cost of $1.08+ trillion

At least 111,000 Afghans, including civilians, soldiers and militants, are estimated to have been killed in the 16-year war.

The Cost of War project estimated that 360,000 others have died from indirect causes related to the war, based on a ratio of indirect to direct deaths in contemporary conflicts.

Documented Civilian Deaths
More than 31,000 civilian  killed in war-related violence in Afghanistan, with 29,900 others wounded.

During the first half of 2017, armed conflict continued to cause severe harm to civilians across Afghanistan, killing and injuring civilians at levels similar to the same period last year. Between 1 January and 30 June 2017, UNAMA documented 5,243 civilian casualties (1,662 deaths and 3,581 injured), marking a decrease of less than one per cent in overall civilian casualties. Civilian deaths increased by two per cent while the number of civilians injured decreased by one per cent. 3 Between 1 January 2009 and 30 June 2017, armed conflict in Afghanistan has claimed the lives of 26,512 civilians and injured 48,931 others.

Child casualties increased by 9% to 436 killed and 1,141 wounded, compared with the first 6-months of 2016. Female deaths rose by 23%, with 174 women killed and 462 wounded.

Congolese Refugees fleeing rebel attacks to Uganda

Mass exodus of Congolese refugees from eastern Democratic Republic of Congo fleeing a rebel attack on the town of Kamango began on Thursday.

As of early Sunday, at least 60,000 refugees had crossed the border into western Uganda’s Bundibugyo district, an increase of 25,000 in 24 hours.

“We were woken in the darkness before dawn on Thursday by shooting, gunshots,” said a female refugee who crossed the border with her three children.

“I just grabbed my children and what I could carry, and we ran towards Uganda, we were frightened of being killed.”

“The town of Kamango in the northernmost part of North Kivu province was attacked and briefly occupied Thursday by a Ugandan-led rebel group, the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF),” AFP reported.

Obama’s War of Terror Replayed at Home

Posted by feww on December 15, 2012


[December 15, 2012] Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.

  • SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,183 Days Left to the most Fateful Day in Human History
  • Symbolic countdown to the ‘worst day’ in human history began on May 15, 2011 ...


Global Disasters/ Significant Events

28 gunned down in another shameful display of Earth dwellers sick psyche

Dressed in black battle fatigues and a military vest, a heavily armed gunman walked into an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, killing at least 27 people, including 20 children and himself. The 28th victim, the alleged shooter’s mother was later found dead at her home.

Wondered Why!!

Could it be that the countless massacres of women and children by the U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan and elsewhere had something to do with this, a ‘karmic’ fallout of the serial wars perhaps?

“We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years,” Obama said during a televised appearance in the White House.

They Were All-American Kids!!

“I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do,” said the Mechanic of Death in Chief.

After all, these were “beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,” living in a wealthy, wooded New England town,  not some Afghan kids living in squalor who would grow up to be terrorists [sic.]

“Our hearts are broken today, for the parents, and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children and for the families of the adults who were lost,” said the Ace of Spades, calling for “meaningful action” to prevent more massacres.

Thousands of Afghan children and adults have been killed by heavily armed gunmen dressed in battle fatigues and military vests in Obama’s war of terror on Afghanistan.

Disaster Calendar – July 21, 2011

Posted by feww on July 21, 2011

2011 Disaster Calendar – July 21 entry

Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,700 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Obama’s war on Afghanistan. From April to mid July 2011, special operations raids in Afghanistan has resulted in the killings of 834 Afghans, said a report.
  • USA. Death toll from the ongoing extreme heat in the United States has climbed to more than 61.  At least 22 more people have died as a result of the ongoing extreme heat in the past few days, NOAA said. The death toll was 39 on  July 13, 2011, UPI said.

[KUDOS to USA Today for journalistic integrity!! The paper has gone out of its way to convince readers why fatalities from the prolonged heatwave are so low, as the official death toll suggests, against not just common sense and investigative instincts, but despite the big white elephant under the heat dome.]

[Death toll grows as heat persists in KC: “The new deaths would mean 13 people have died from the heat this summer in Jackson County, already surpassing the previous three years’ totals combined.”]

  • Ohio, USA. Summit County in Ohio has declared a state of emergency after flood damage caused by the storms earlier this week, a report said.
  • Ontario, Canada. Aski Nation Grand Chief Stan Beardy is asking the provincial and federal governments to declare a state of emergency amid growing wildfires in the province, a report said. “More than 115 forest fires are raging across northwestern Ontario, and Beardy says thousands of residents are in immediate danger from the growing flames and dense smoke.”

  • Chile. The Chilean President has declared large parts of La Araucania in Chilean Patagonia  a disaster areas following  four days of continuous and intense snowfall which have left some areas buried under 9 feet of snow, a report said.
    • “The government has resolved to help those affected, especially those living in Lonquimay,” Chile’s president said. “We declare the zone a disaster area in order to give us greater tools to help our fellow Chileans.”
    • “In four days we have had four months worth of snowfall,” said Regional Governor Miguel Mellado. “We’ve got a very difficult situation here.”
    • The disaster declaration covers the following area: Lonquimay, Curralehue, Melipeuco, Curacautín, Pucón, Cunco, Vilcún and Villarrica, the report said.
    • It’s estimated that at least 6,500 people living in the disaster zone are currently isolated.
