    Unicef is the largest aid organization in most if not all of those nations. Great work by the UN putting addressing the problems you post about. Do you donate to Unicef? What are you doing to help?

    I donated to Unicef. I even supported Amnesty International for a long time, but they have become awful. Heck, I even supported Greenpeace a long time ago.

    When Israel purposely kills civilians, they continue to purposely kill civilians. Because they want to ethnically remove Palestinians from their own land.

    I disagree. They absolutely do gain something. There have already been hundreds of tons of aid delivery canceled. This helps Israel in its goal of mass starvation of Gaza. They want complete annihilation and their actions over the past 6 months prove this.

    ....did you just seriously say russia needs to be more careful bcz they don't have USA on their side?!?!!?! The fact that Russia has their own military complex and can manufacture their own weapons is reason for them to be LESS careful.

    Israel relies on US support which should mean they should be MORE careful as they're receiving aid from a 3rd country.

    its interesting that you think that those who call out people who cheer on the IDF when they kill aid workers are repulsive.

    Is the USA giving billions in aid to hamas? Last time I saw taxpayers are giving billions to Israel not hamas. Why would you compare the two? Youre not very bright are you?

    The US is far, far more powerful than Russia. Russia is not going to make impulsive moves that could potentially trigger direct involvement of US. Russia’s strategy seems to be to draw this out as long as they can until Ukraine gives up.

    Israel, on the other hand, wants to end this conflict quickly. And their weapons supplier (US) is with them on that.


    The US is not going to drop their support for Israel over something like this. See the immediate response from our spokesmen. The relationship is just too deeply ingrained in our military defense strategy (which includes investment in technology that we then sell to Israel).

    Anyway, that’s my take. Could be wrong.

    bro what universe are you living in?! Russia literally put their nukes on standby and positioned a nuclear submarine close to out shores and even placed one of their battleships near alaska?! What world are you living in which Russia isn't being super aggressive or ruthless?

    Russia relies on their own military complex and even they have basic norms and respect for aid workers. Israel feels empowered cuz they have usa backing which enables them to slaughter as many civilians as they want.

    Israel is committing war crimes in the open and that's a fact

    @AroundTheWorld and these other clowns use Palestinians and Hamas interchangeably. They are not.

    I suppose you can read this as aggressive. To me, it’s defensive posturing. The last thing Russia wants is military escalation or direct engagement by the US. Do you think this isn’t a concern of theirs?

    Russia is not trying to accelerate the conflict at this stage. They are (arguably) in control right now, and mostly just need to wait it out as Ukraine exhausts its supplies.

    https://www.ausa.org/publications/russo-ukrainian-war-strategic-assessment-two-years-conflict


    Considering Russia’s diverse bases of power, it is likely that battlefield stasis—or stalemate—will continue through 2024. In fact, this is probably Russia’s preferred course of action. It is likely that Russia is seeking to elongate the conflict through the upcoming U.S. presidential election, in hopes that the United States will elect a president who is not as friendly toward Kyiv and the Ukrainian fight for sovereignty—namely, one that will eliminate U.S. support to Ukraine’s war effort altogether.

    Israel feeling empowered to conduct their operations less cautiously because they have US backing is the crux of what I was trying to say.

    Zionists went from “even the US military tortured their prisoners in abu ghraib” and “even the US killed innocents in Hiroshima” to “even Hamas hasn’t apologized for killing civilians”.


    Pathetic losers.

    The only logical explanation.

    Very sad and unfortunate.

    Hamas caused this.

    Why did the rockets lose? Blame hamas!
    Why is it hot in Houston? Blame hamas!
    Why is tesla down today? Blame hamas!

    The only morons who this works on is American right wingers who are MAGA boomers with a iq equivalent of a dog @basso . The rest of the world isn't buying this garbage.

    Uk was one of Israel strongest allies and they recalled their ambassador. I'm in Europe right now and folks in America don't realize how isolated Isrsel is on the world stage @Nook .

    Bibi has been able to destroy Israel's image during this war. Hamas is not the reason why Israel is starving Palestinians. You can't blame hamas for everything

    They are not deliberately killing aid workers - because it makes them look bad internationally. Are they being careful to avoid non combatant targets like Palestinian civilians? I highly doubt it, not looking at how they have fought this war. If they were more careful, would they possibly of bit killed these aid workers? Yeah it is possible but we won’t know.

    Being a humanitarian aid worker in the Middle East in a time of war is a very dangerous job, and these people knew it.
