And yes it was a fateful day…34 American sailors were murdered by a supposed ally, Israel and the US allowed the cowardly attack to go unanswered.

John McCain’s father is the one that allowed the attack to go unanswered…..

Sad thing is Americans thump their chest and hate Iranians because of the attack on the embassy in 1979 but yet the death of 34 American sailors means NOTHING to them.  I find that PATHETIC!

In case you are interested…..these are the dead killed by Israel…..

Never Forget and Never Forgive!

The brave men of the Liberty deserve better than this nation has given them…they died for nothing more than to preserve a notion of friendship.

Remember The USS Liberty!

Today my Saturday will be in remembrance of the American deaths from the bastards that attacked the US Naval ship, the USS Liberty…..since I am giving so much information for my reader to digest this will be my only post today.

As they say….it’s a small world…..look at how all these situations are intertwine…..

And we have been protecting Israel from paying for their crimes and the list is substantial ever since that attack.

These Americans should NEVER have been forgotten….and they have for most of the society….I hopefully can help their memory endure.

For those that need visuals……

Please help a country remember their dead…..sailors they have mostly forgotten.

REMEMBER THE LIBERTY!

Please Pass it On!

Learn Stuff!

Allow me to reiterate…..That is a lot of information to be digested so this will be my only post for the day……..

Have a good start to the weekend and may your day be filled with joy and love…..

Peace Out!

USS Liberty–Update 2019

FINALLY!

It is always good to start a new year with some good news….and this report to me is excellent news that is about 50 years to late…..but better late than never, eh?

I have been writing about the USS Liberty incident since 2009…it was a brutal attack by Israel on a US signet ship during the 6 day war and the attack was swept under the carpet for 51years…..my post are usually on the anniversary of the deplorable attack.

My post from last year that covers many of the articles written about the attack…..

https://lobotero.com/2018/06/08/08june67-uss-liberty/

I have been calling for a more open investigation into this act of terrorism by Israel against an unarmed ship…and I am never alone in this desire…..finally someone has also picked up the mantle for an investigation…..

Due to the persistence of surviving crew members and the continual emergence of new revelations, the national veteran’s group American Legion has passed Resolution 40 calling for Congress to “publicly, impartially, and thoroughly” investigate the attack by Israel on an American ship in 1967, in which 34 American sailors were killed and hundreds of others were wounded. The resolution comes despite a veil of government secrecy which keeps key documents on the attack classified more than 50 years later. [NSA USS Liberty documents]

The attack, which surviving crew members to a man say was deliberate, as well as a stellar list of high-ranking officials, has never been officially investigated outside of a Navy Court of Inquiry and an NSA probe. Surviving crew members were not allowed to testify to key points which did not fit the official conclusion that it was an accident.

https://hubpages.com/politics/American-Legion-Joins-VFW-in-Calling-for-Congressional-USS-Liberty-Investigation

Now is the time for Israel to face charges for this brutal attack….their disregard for the lives of an ally…..

We will see what kind of courage this new batch of Reps has or if they are the spineless bunch I believe them to be.

Israel should be held accountable for the deaths of 34 US sailors….many of us have been calling for this action for decades….finally someone is listening.

Time for the truth to come to light and sweep all the Israeli bullshit under the rug.

Closing Thought–05Sep17

Remember the USS Liberty!

I have writing about the cowardly attack by Israeli forces on the USS Liberty during the 6 Day War….an attack that has been ignored for 50 years….

This post is t5he combination of all the posts that I have written over the years….

Source: USS Liberty–The 50th Year – In Saner Thought

Now there is some good news for those dead sailors…the American Legion is calling for a congressional inquiry into the attack by Israel.

On June 8th 1967 the United States Navy intelligence ship the U.S.S. Liberty was attacked in international waters by aircraft and vessels belonging to Israel. Thirty-four sailors, Marines and civilians were killed in the attack. The deliberate Israeli air and sea onslaught sought to sink the clearly identified intelligence gathering ship and kill all its crew. It was in truth the worst attack ever carried out on a U.S. Naval vessel in peace time. In addition to the death toll, 171 more of the crew were wounded in the two-hour assault, which was clearly intended to destroy the intelligence gathering vessel operating in international waters collecting information on the ongoing fighting between Israel and its Arab neighbors. The Israelis, whose planes had their Star of David markings covered up so Egypt could be blamed, attacked the ship repeatedly from the air and with torpedo boats from the sea. When one Israeli pilot hesitated, refusing to attack what was clearly an American ship, he was instructed to proceed anyway.

Most Americans are completely unaware that a United States naval vessel was once deliberately targeted and nearly sunk by America’s “greatest friend and ally” Israel. The attack was followed by a comprehensive cover-up that demonstrated clearly that at least one president of the United States even back nearly fifty years ago valued his relationship with the state of Israel above his loyalty to his own country.

This is not justice for those dead but it will be a good start.

About goddamn time that America starting paying attention…..Israel needs to be held accountable for the deaths at their hands.

I would celebrate by jumping up and down but a broken foot makes that not such a wise idea….

USS Liberty–The 50th Year

This day’s posts are dedicated to the memory of 34 US sailors that died at the hands of a betraying ally……

Today, 08 June, is the 50th anniversary of the cowardly attack by Israel on a naval vessel, USS Liberty, in 1967…the attack killed 34 American sailors and wounded 170 others.

Below is an archive of all the posts I have done over the years about this attack….please take the time and learn about this event….I know it is a lot to take in but 34 dead Americans would appreciate your time……

To this day Israel has NOT been held accountable…..to this day Americans still think Israel is some sort of ally and friend…..to this day these brave Americans go not avenged…..

To me these attackers are despicable cowards and in NO way deserve our friendship or our help…..let alone any respect. Period!

Not Remembering the USS Liberty

I will be dedicating today’s posts to the attack on 08Jun1967…..

It is June and everywhere there are celebrations of the victory in the 6 Day War….nowhere in all this is there ever much mention of the deadly attack by Israel on a US naval vessel, USS Liberty, and the death and injuries that it caused.

If Trump were this “America First” dude then why did he NOT bring up this attack that the world knows about but the US and Israel choose to forget?  Why?

It is safe to assume that when President Donald Trump lands in Israel Monday, he will not have been briefed on the irrefutable evidence that, nearly 50 years ago – on June 8, 1967 – Israel deliberately attacked the USS Liberty in international waters, killing 34 U.S. sailors and wounding more than 170 other crew. All of Trump’s predecessors – Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama – have refused to address the ugly reality and/or covered up the attack on the Liberty.

Every American should be outraged at this dismal of American deaths….the US should sack up and confront Israel over this betrayal…instead of cowering to them like well beaten mutts…..only COWARDS allow this to go unanswered……

Then we remember the day……

There has been a lot of media coverage mostly written by Israelis or American Jews regarding Israel’s “victory” fifty years ago during the so-called Six Days War directed against its Arab neighbors but I have yet to see an account that mentions the fate of the U.S.S. Liberty. Nevertheless, the Liberty is not forgotten. This Thursday at noon at Arlington National Cemetery there will be a small gathering for the annual coming together with the survivors and friends of the most decorated ship in the history of the U.S. Navy, a victim of a particularly brutal and unprovoked attack by Israel that has been covered up for half a century by the powers that be in Washington. The moving service will include reminiscences by surviving crew members plus the ringing of a ship’s bell for each one of the thirty-four American sailors, Marines and civilians that were killed in the deliberate Israeli air and sea onslaught that sought to sink the intelligence gathering ship and kill all its crew. Present will be a number of veterans like myself and other Americans who are committed to ensuring that the story of the Liberty will not die in hopes that someday the United States government will have the courage to acknowledge what actually happened on that fateful day.

Remembering the U.S.S. Liberty – The Unz Review

This month 49 years ago the US Navy ship, USS Liberty, was attacked by the Israelis…..the incident has been swept under the rug then and is still a little known piece of American Naval history….I am trying to see that it is not forgotten….we as a country MUST remember these brave souls killed by an ally…..we must never forget this attack or the sailors that died!

Last Wednesday at noon at Arlington National Cemetery I attended the annual commemorative gathering of the survivors and friends of the U.S.S. Liberty. The moving service included the ringing of a ship’s bell…….

Two important lessons from Israeli attack on the USS Liberty

Another article on the murderous attack by Israeli planes on an American ship, the USS Liberty……this is a seldom remembered tragedy and the deaths of Americans should never be forgotten even if they are the result of an Ally….

I have been asked why I seem to be down on Israel……I point to this incident…….

Today, June 8, 2016, is the 49th anniversary of the cowardly and deadly Israeli attacks on the USS Liberty. The repeated Israeli attacks from the air and sea on the American Navy ship on June 8, 1967 killed 33 American sailors and Marines and one American civilian while wounding 174 Americans. This tragic case is offering every American lessons regarding the Jewish state of Israel and US politicians and military brass.

After repeatedly attacking the USS Liberty from the air and from the sea, once Israel realized the crew of the USS Liberty had been able to get a message off to the Sixth Fleet that they were under attack, Israel lied and said it was an accident. The survivors know that Israel is lying and that the repeated and deadly attacks by the Jewish state were very deliberate.

US military brass (bureaucrats in uniform) ordered the survivors to remain completely silent about Israel’s war crime. The Commander in Chief at the time, Lyndon Johnson, immediately accepted Israel’s irrational excuse that the attack was a mistake. Johnson even lied about the USS Liberty attack in his autobiography by claiming 10 men were killed instead of 34 and lowering the number of wounded from 174 to 100. (It’s interesting and revealing of LBJ’s complete lack of courage and character that he lied about being under enemy fire and received a Silver Star for gallantry based on that lie.)

Please help these fallen Americans to be remembered and to help have Israel be finally held accountable.

Thank you!

Liberty Survivors Say US Still Downplays Israel’s Attack on Ship

This article is a couple of days late….but at least someone remembers……

The U.S. Navy’s official story on the incident omits naming Israel as the attacker.

Nearly a half century after the USS Liberty — a lightly armed American spy ship — was almost sunk by Israeli air and sea forces during the Six Day War, survivors say the U.S. still prefers to avoid dealing with what happened and identifying who attacked the ship.

Strafed by machine-gun fire, hit by napalm and torpedoed over the course of the 75-minute attack, the Liberty has one of the most highly decorated crews in American naval history.

USS Liberty Veterans Association | Letter to Bibi

A letter was sent to Israel’s PM BiBi about the attack so many years ago…..[lease take some time and read the thoughts of those who lived through the attack…..

Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu,
Usually I write America’s political and military leaders on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.  I try to remind them about the men and women who serve this Country and the obligation that they have in protecting them and honoring their sacrifice.  I tell them about protecting our rights and freedoms and not let their ambitions stand in the way of the decisions they make.
I sympathize with the Jewish people with the horrors of World War II.
I also lost relatives during the war to the Nazis.  An uncle and a cousin, and two of my uncles were in slave labor camps.  I realize that the Jewish people need a homeland.  But the size of Israel has changed dramatically since 1948 through the acquisition of lands due to wars.  And this is where my sympathy with Israel ends.

Source: USS Liberty Veterans Association | Letter to Bibi

SAfter you have read this letter take a good look at the signees of said letter…..see anyone you recognize?

In case you were too f*cking lazy or uninterested enough to take a few moments to read then among the names are Obama, Biden, Boehner, Clinton, et al……and yet it is still taboo to mention this attack and the murder of American sailors in public.

Why is that?
