Israel-Hamas War thread, has the powder keg exploded?

The US draft ended because, people have to remember, the army was headed towards open mutiny during Vietnam. The domestic protesters and political opposition were completely shrugged off, but the fragging let the brass know that they couldn't keep the show going indefinitely.

Iraq 1 and 2 were entirely done with volunteers, mercenaries and the "poverty draft". Loyalty (and war crimes) were way up and fragging had all but disappeared. The recruitment numbers are irreversibly in the toilet after Iraq 2; that type of force is basically depleted at this point.

The capital-W West has spent the last couple decades fantasizing about filling in that gap by just going harder with bombs and robots. I'm not sure how much of that is pure propaganda copium at this point. We're seeing heavy use of drones now but they aren't exactly a replacement for actual trained infantry.

I'm Gen Z and I cannot imagine a draft right now. It would be conscription in its rawest form. Gen Z left-wingers hate the United States and all it stands for, and right-wing Gen Z disagree with the basis for this war. It would be Vietnam 2.0, the civil unrest would be crazy.

Didn't even know there was an RNC debate the other day, timestamped them talking about Israel vs Palestine, some really unhinged takes where they borderline salivate in envy at the prospect of smoking the middle east.

My favorite is Nikki Haley's "It is not that Israel needs America. America needs Israel." :?Puzzled?:
Like damn bitch then why are we sending them billions in tax dollars every year then??

At least this bloodlust desire is a bi-partisan issue...

The Campaign Against Antisemitism has released a statement saying that Sir Mark Rowley, commissioner of the Metropolitan police, is "failing" Britain's Jews. It also says that Rowley has "serious questions to answer" about why the march was allowed to take place.
Man, I wonder why people think Zionists are shady motherfuckers when they go around trying to ban protests that hurt their feelings and criminalize holding any position on Israel that isn't pure bumlicking.

holy shit this is actually insane
Imagine being a vetern and telling your grandchildren years later that you served as a corpse cum collector lol

Jokes aside though, Israel has a long history of doing stuff like this. They literally maintain skin and organ banks harvested off dead Palestinians

I find it so fucking funny that the Jews lose the meme and information war so badly and that the Goyims they cultivate (Gen Z) is absolutely in support of Palestine.

America is a "democracy" where there is no one you can vote for who isn't a genocidal maniac.
Not even that. Your vote doesn't do jack shit and the compacts/agreements between the states that say that the popular vote must be used in X, Y, Z events haven't been given the green-light by congress. Interstate compacts/agreements need congressional approval so it's all null and void. My advice is not to get wrapped up in all the political stuff. Live your life and enjoy it. Don't get wrapped up in this stuff.

Happening going on in DC tonight, pro-Palestine demonstrators are getting physical with the police at the DNC headquarters. Can't tell if they managed to occupy the building or have already been expelled from it.


Hearing whacky things like this are actually happening almost makes the adrenochrome conspiracy stuff sound less outlandish ngl
