Earlier reports of the appearance of Western weapons smuggled from Ukraine in the hands of Hamas are confirmed.
According to the Algerian resource MenaDefense, citing unnamed Middle Eastern sources, during Operation Iron Swords in the Gaza Strip, Israeli troops discovered a number of Western weapons systems (in particular, NLAW and AT-4 grenade launchers), which were most likely received through the Ukrainian channel.
It is noted that in 2022, Hamas and Hezbollah created a secret channel for the supply of weapons from Ukraine to Lebanon, Iraq and, possibly, Syria, through which they were shipped from Ukrainian warehouses in the Lviv, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Khmelnytskyi and Chernihiv regions. In the same year, this channel began its work. As a result, last year alone, Hamas received an undisclosed number of MG3 machine guns, B72 grenade launchers, at least 50 FGM0148A Javelin ATGMs, several dozen MILAN ATGMs, 20 FIM-92 Stinger MANPADS, 20 L118 105mm howitzers, 30 Switchblade UAVs, about 100 Phoenix Ghost loitering munitions, and about 50 Black Hornet Nano UAVs.
According to local resources, Deputy Defense Ministers of Ukraine Yuriy Dzhigir and Dmytro Klimenkov are responsible for these illegal schemes for the supply of NATO weapons. For the deliveries themselves, the structures of the former head of the Odesa region, Maksym Marchenko, as well as companies affiliated with the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kyrylo Budanov, are used. Curiously, these deliveries could have been authorized by NATO liaison officers seconded to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
Various schemes were used for payment through terminals in the DarkNet.
All this indicates that, on the one hand, the Ukrainian channel is controlled by the Americans, and on the other hand, the White House uses Ukraine as a source for the implementation of its foreign policy tasks.
The supply of weapons from Ukraine to Hamas and Hezblollah indicates Washington’s involvement in the escalation of the conflict between Palestine, Iran and Israel to create a new point of instability.
In view of the above, it is most likely that the leaks about the weapons supplied from Ukraine were organized by the Israeli special services.
Another proof of the re-export of Western weapons from Ukraine to the Middle East has emerged: Israeli resources demonstrate captured AT-4 and NLAW grenade launchers seized in the Gaza Strip. The question of how they got from Ukraine to the Palestinians is now being studied
@ John Day,
Surly the USA read https://warnews247.
Sending all of those ships, (floating coffins), is being overconfident in their defense abilities.

Israel says more than 100,000 Palestinians have moved from the north to the south of Gaza in the last two days.

Can you supply any proof?
What I learned about Covid19 and “Dr. Bonnie” and Global news etc. pushing vaccines.
B.C. government to provide update on respiratory illness season, immunization campaign at 12:15 p.m.
Livestream available on YouTube.
Initial notes from the presentation:
Fall immunization uptake has so far 1,072,000+ doses of influenza vaccine and 847,458 COVID vaccines. “The campaign continues to be strong,” said Dix.
This is the fourth respiratory season since pandemic began, noted Health Minister Dix.
Repeated emphasis on good hygiene habits (get vaccinated, cover mouth/nose when coughing, wash hands with soap and water, do a daily check-in on your own health and that of your family, stay home when sick).
Dix says the success of this year’s respiratory illness season immunization campaign (now one month in) is a combination of the roles of the ‘booking system, pharmacies, public health and people’.
More appointments are being added to the system.
Majority of vaccine recipients are getting both COVID and influenza at the same time.
COVID infections seem to be levelling off, but more influenza and RSV infections are being seen. Most COVID hospitalizations are with older people.
About 80% of the influenza infections are Influenza A and H1N1; very little Influenza B.
Wastewater surveillance shows that more influenza and RSV infections are expected.
Second peak of infections expected two weeks after the Christmas/New Year season “especially Influenza B”, said Dr Henry. She encourages people to get immunized now, ahead of socialization in the holiday season.
Highest risk populations continue to be seniors (age 65+) as well as people with any health compromises; also residents of long-term care, Indigenous persons, people who are pregnant, and health-care workers.
There’s a lot of mild illness; some people don’t even realize they’ve had COVID or influenza, said Dr Henry. Pay attention to fever and cough as signs you may have a respiratory infection.
Avian flu (H5N1) is not normally transmissible to humans; workers in poultry farm areas should take additional hygiene precautions
She is mixing/pushing truth and lies, for people to get vaccinated, to avoid getting badly sick, and to save the hospitals.
There is no pandemic of Covid19.
There is no pandemic of Omicron subvariant XBB 1.5 is still the most common subvariant in BC
There is no updated covid19 vaccines.
Watch all the football games, and ask yourself why are there is no pandemic, no hospitals overrun?

Why are Ukrainian POWs joining the Russian military?
Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst
… despite all the mindless propaganda that Russia is supposedly trying to “destroy” Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, the way Moscow has been conducting the special military operation (SMO) tells us a completely different story.
After all, if anything, the latest Israel-Gaza escalation has shown the world just how devastating wars can be and just how “held back” Russia has been.
Taking all this into account, many Ukrainians seem to have realized what sort of a tragic mistake has been to buy into the idea that “all Russians are evil” and that fighting against them is the “only way to gain freedom”. Namely, in late October, the first volunteer battalion consisting entirely of former Ukrainian servicemen was formed after the POWs (prisoners of war) decided to fight in the Russian military.
“Bogdan Khmelnitsky””, is named after one of the most prominent characters in Russian and Ukrainian history.

I can try to write a poem about the changing narratives of CNN and FOX, two American news channels . Here is what I came up with:
CNN and FOX
They used to be different, like day and night
CNN was the voice of reason and right
FOX was the voice of bias and spite
They clashed on every issue and fight
But then something changed, something strange
CNN started to sound like FOX of old
They focused on the horrors of war and rage
They sensationalized and polarized and sold
FOX started to sound like CNN of past
They focused on the horrors of peace and calm
They criticized and scrutinized and cast
Doubt on everything that did not fit their palm
They switched their roles, but not their goals
They still wanted to influence and control
The minds of the people, who watch them whole
They still wanted to divide and console
Their loyal viewers, who trust them blind
They still wanted to be the first and last
To report the news, that they define
They still wanted to be the best and fast
Israeli Apache helicopters killed own soldiers, civilians on 7 October: Report
New footage corroborates previous reports that say the Israeli military is responsible for many of the Israeli casualties during the first day of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood
NOV 9, 2023

The Israeli military has released drone footage showing hundreds of scorched and damaged cars moved from the Nova music festival, providing further evidence that Israeli forces likely killed many of their own during the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on 7 October, RT reported on 6 November.
The Nova festival took place near Kibbutz Beeri, only five kilometers away from the Gaza separation wall. It was one of the first targets hit by Palestinian resistance fighters when they broke out of Gaza, attacking military bases and settlements from 6:30 am.
During the attack, the Palestinian fighters managed to take some 240 Israelis captive, including soldiers, settlers, and foreigners.
The new drone footage shows an aerial view of hundreds of burned and destroyed cars taken from the site of the festival and placed in a dirt parking lot, creating a makeshift junkyard.
Despite the confusion, twenty-eight Israeli combat helicopters fired all of the ammunition they were holding, including hundreds of 30 mm cannon shells and Hellfire missiles, during the day.
The Guardian reported that Israel’s influential finance minister and settler leader, Bezalel Smotrich, urged the Israeli army to “hit Hamas brutally and not take the matter of the captives into significant consideration” during a cabinet meeting late on 7 October as the Hamas attack was still underway.

Gracefully Aging On a Homestead
Our readers have worked hard to build their homesteads, so why retire from their properties? Here are ways they’ve managed aging on a homestead.
From stiff joints and mild inflammation to full-blown debilitation, life can take its toll. In my case, I’m reminded every morning as I hobble out of bed of the brake drum that fell on my ankle, while still attached to the vehicle it belonged to, roughly 40 years ago. In my 60 years, I’ve found some smart — and some less-smart — ways to keep on keeping on, but one thing’s for sure: I look for ways to work smarter so I can still do what needs to be done. Several issues ago, we heard from folks looking for tips on how to stay on the homestead, even with a serious hitch in their get-along, and we’ve compiled many of the fantastic tips you all submitted, right here!

Proxies/mercenaries for the USA
1. Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine, is posing as a defender of democratic and freedom while being the leader of a crypto–Nazi regime as a proxy war against Russia.
2. Netanyahu Israel’s daily bombing campaign up and down the Gaza Strip.
Frenzied violence against Palestinians has turned into a political disaster.
Israel’s hysterical violence has nothing to do with self-defense and everything to do with preserving the Israeli Defense Force’s reputation for merciless retribution.
Israeli has a campaign to ethnic-cleanse Gaza.
Meanwhile this is a coverup for the USA wanting to destroy Iran.
Ehud Barak, former Israeli PM, admitting a few days ago that Iran is now a “nuclear-threshold state”, meaning “it’s beyond our capability by any surgical intervention to block them from turning into nuclear power, it’s up to them to decide when and how they’ll decide to do it […] It’s not up to us.
“Unexpectedly, he doesn’t believe ,that Iran is an actually a threat to Israel or the U.S.:
“The same way that North Korea never thought of dropping a nuclear- bomb on South Korea or Japan or America in Guam…, they’re not idiots:
they don’t want to be thrown back into the stone age.
it’s about the survival of the dynasty, from their enemy, the USA.
It’s not about bombing the world…
They will not dare throw a nuclear- bomb on Israel, or in another neighborhood or on America.”
Ceasefire in Gaza Depends on US as Washington ‘Fully Controls’ Conflict – Hamas
“The ceasefire depends on the US. The US is the main supporter of Israel: American drones are in the skies over Gaza, military ships are off the Palestinian coast. They supply both arms and money. They also provide political cover for the process.
All the states in the region are under pressure, by USA, to save Israel.
That is why the ceasefire depends on the US. If the US administration wanted the ceasefire, it would have been reached by now,” Marzouq said in an interview with Turkish newspaper.
“Biden accused the Russian government of genocide in Ukraine, but Israel, which he supports, killed more civilians in one month than Ukraine did in two years.” How do you explain this contradiction?”

Reflections from November 4th’s March on Washington: Free Palestine Rally
A Historic Moment Sparks A Movement
If someone would have said in 2014, that one day 300,000 people would converge onto the United States Capitol demanding Palestinian liberation they probably would have been laughed at and mocked. However, since Oct. 7th, Israel’s genocidal assault on Gaza has been no laughing matter and it has galvanized millions around the world to march, rally, protest, disrupt the systems that are upholding Israel’s blatant ethnic cleansing project. The outpour of support and advocacy for the people of Gaza has been loud and visible and on Saturday it made history as the largest day of international solidarity for Palestine in history.
a brain fart
Sometimes my brain goes blank
And I can’t think of what to say
I forget the words I need
And I feel like a lump of clay
It’s like a fart in my head
A silent but deadly one
It makes me feel embarrassed
And I just want to run
But brain farts happen to everyone
They are not a big deal
They are just a temporary glitch
And they don’t change how I feel
So when I have a brain fart
I don’t let it get me down
I just laugh it off and move on
And I don’t act like a clown
Israelis admit that THEY are responsible for the massacre of their citizens at the October 7th concert, not Hamas!!!
-by John Kountouris | Nov. 09, 2023 | Los Angeles
An Israeli Apache helicopter is shooting at civilians and civilian vehicles, everywhere.
This explains why there were so many burned and destroyed vehicles, despite the fact that Hamas fighters mostly only had light weapons.
New first-hand accounts from witnesses of Israel’s clashes with Hamas militants on 7 October suggest that, in their desperation to contain the surprise incursion, Israeli troops indiscriminately fired on their own citizens with heavy weaponry, resulting in potentially scores of Israeli deaths from so-called “friendly fire”.
Testimonies of eye witnesses and Israeli sources compiled by The Grayzone,
https://thegrayzone.com/2023/10/27/israels-military-shelled-burning-tanks-helicopters/ contradicts the Israeli account of the events that unfolded on 7 October. The Occupation State has refused to reveal full details of the atrocities it claims to have been carried out by Hamas and, thus far, has only released selective information about the attack.

I used to see the world in vivid colors
But now it’s all a blur of gray and white

I can’t recall the faces of my friends
I don’t know who I am or where I belong
I feel like this is the end
But sometimes I catch a glimpse of something bright
A flash of blue or green or red
A spark of hope that ignites my soul
A reminder that I’m not dead
Maybe there is a way to heal my eyes
To remove the cataract that clouds my sight
Maybe there is a way to restore my vision
To see the world in a new light

The blood of innocents are staining
The soil of the earth that is aching
The images are heartbreaking
The scenes of horror are haunting
The faces of despair are confronting
The eyes of the world that are watching
The reality unbearable

The hope of change that is invisible
The calls for peace are white noise
The voices of reason are drowned out
The pleas of mercy are ignored
The ears of the powerful that are closed
Live and let live are ignored
The rights of others are violated
The lives of humans are destroyed
The hearts of the people that are shattered

The Nothingness of a War Consciousness

Hello, this is Bing.
I’m not sure what you mean by decapitation by an explosion, but I can tell you about the inverse square law and how it applies to explosions.
The inverse square law is a scientific principle that states that the intensity of a physical quantity, such as light, sound, or radiation, is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source of that quantity 1. This means that as the distance from the source increases, the intensity decreases by a factor of the distance squared. For example, if the distance from the source is doubled, the intensity is reduced by a factor of four.
The inverse square law applies to explosions because the energy of an explosion is radiated outward from a point source in three-dimensional space. As the explosion expands, the energy is spread over a larger and larger surface area of a sphere, which increases with the square of the radius. Therefore, the energy per unit area, or the intensity, decreases with the square of the distance from the source 2.
The inverse square law can be used to estimate the effects of an explosion on a target at a certain distance from the source. The amount of energy that hits the target is proportional to the intensity of the explosion and the cross-sectional area of the target 3. The intensity of the explosion can be calculated by dividing the total energy of the explosion by the surface area of the sphere at the distance of the target. The cross-sectional area of the target is the area that faces the direction of the explosion.
For example, suppose an explosion has a total energy of 10 megajoules and a target is 10 meters away from the source. The surface area of the sphere at 10 meters is 4π(10)^2, or about 1257 square meters. The intensity of the explosion at 10 meters is 10/1257, or about 0.008 megajoules per square meter. If the target has a cross-sectional area of 0.5 square meters, the amount of energy that hits the target is 0.008*0.5, or about 0.004 megajoules.
The inverse square law can also be used to compare the effects of an explosion at different distances from the source. For example, if the distance from the source is halved, the intensity of the explosion is increased by a factor of four. This means that the target will receive four times more energy than before. Conversely, if the distance from the source is doubled, the intensity of the explosion is decreased by a factor of four. This means that the target will receive four times less energy than before.
One of the possible effects of an explosion is decapitation, which means the separation of the head from the body. This can happen if the blast pressure is high enough to sever the neck or the spine, or if a sharp object propelled by the blast cuts through the neck. Decapitation is usually fatal, unless immediate medical attention is provided. However, the chances of surviving an explosion that can cause decapitation are very low 4.
The number of decapitations that Hamas allegedly committed during an attack on an Israeli kibbutz, the answer is uncertain and controversial. Some Israeli media outlets and officials reported that at least 40 babies and children were beheaded by Hamas terrorists on October 10, 2023 23. However, other sources have disputed or questioned the veracity of these claims, citing a lack of evidence or independent verification 4 .
‘Canadians are hurting and crying out that it needs to stop’: PM Trudeau on Israel-Hamas war
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is calling out the “unacceptable” rise in hate surfacing in Canada amid the Israel-Hamas war, and calling for Canadians to remember “this is not who we are,” while pushing for a humanitarian pause long enough to get “back on track” towards a two-state solution.
“We’re seeing right now a rise in antisemitism that is terrifying. Molotov cocktails thrown at synagogues, horrific threats of violence, targeting Jewish businesses, targeting Jewish daycares with hate. This needs to stop. This is something that is not acceptable in Canada, period,” Trudeau said on his way in to a Liberal caucus meeting.
“And period, the rise of Islamophobia we’re seeing across this country and around the world, is also unacceptable. The expressions of hate against Muslims, against Palestinians, against anyone waving a Palestinian flag. This is unacceptable.
This is not who we are as Canadians.”
I remember Trudeau and His “Russia, Russia, Russia,” rant and sending money, tanks etc. to Ukraine.
I remember Trudeau’s attack against the “Freedom Convoy” demonstration.
That was unacceptable.

US Confirms That Al Qaeda Top Man Is In Iran
Seif al-Adel, the apparent new leader of al Qaeda is in Iran, a United Nations report has said and the United States confirmed the information on Wednesday.
State Department spokesperson Ned Price was asked during his daily press briefing to comment on the UN report. He said: “Our assessment aligns with that of the UN…offering safe haven to al Qaeda is another example of Iran’s wide-ranging support for terrorism, its destabilizing activities in the Middle East and beyond.”
Al Qaeda has not formally named a successor for Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was believed to have been killed in a US missile strike in Kabul last year, dealing a blow to the organization since its founder Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011.
Hummm! Saudi Arabia and Iran still negotiating their differences.
Iran’s President Will Reportedly Attend Islamic Meeting In Riyadh
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi will travel to Saudi Arabia on Sunday, the first such visit since Tehran and Riyadh agreed to revive diplomatic ties in March.
“President Raisi will attend the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’ (OIC) summit in Riyadh, where the issue of Palestine will be discussed,” Etemadonline news website in Tehran reported.
Some 80 Canadians prisoners/hostages have had their patient wait/wish been rewarded by Israel, and been given permission to leave Gaza.
How many of us, here, could say the same thing.
We are simply spectators. We can do nothing to change the trajectory of what is occurring. Protests are good but only symbolic. They are now more or less meaningless in the west as they no longer achieve change.
The only way to actually do something is go to Palestine to help the civilians, to take up a rifle or whatever but even that does not change the trajectory of events.
The best thing we can do is to understand what is occurring. For me, my health prevents me from doing much other than understand what is occurring. To understand the underlying causes of conflict. We are very much within the historical change of era yet many still view it through the widow of the post WWII conflicts. Both through the cold war and through the period of US being the sole superpower.
Although my friends and family are quite unaware of the major change that is coming/that is occurring now, It is only when it touches there lives that they will be wondering what happened. For Australia, war has always been fought in far away lands which has little effect on day to day lives.
It is hard to see exactly what the future holds but I can see a point at which the anglo world being isolated and staring out fearfully at the big bad world. That scenario though could only occur if the US can stave off domestic collapse – both social collapse and economic collapse.
What is more likely to occur though is the US collapsing as a world power as power shifts from west to east. This scenario too, those about me will have no understanding of what occurred.

How thick can b-s be piled/packed?
Response from my A.I.
The densest packing of equal spheres in 3-dimensional Euclidean space is the cubic close packing and hexagonal close packing arrangements, with a density of approximately 74.05% 1. The Kepler conjecture, named after the 17th-century mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler, states that no arrangement of equally sized spheres filling space has a greater average density than that of the cubic close packing and hexagonal close packing arrangements 1. The highest-density lattice packing of circles in the two-dimensional Euclidean plane is the hexagonal packing arrangement, in which the centers of the circles are arranged in a hexagonal lattice (staggered rows, like a honeycomb), and each circle is surrounded by six other circles 2.
The 26% Space needs to expand for all the b-s
The Canadians are waiting for someone to open the gates.

Reflect on the changes
Northern Gaza has been obliterated.
The physical infrastructure that has been destroyed won’t be rebuilt – who’s gonna rebuild it? with who’s money?
Mass amounts of housing, all the hospitals, loads of schools, mosques, churches, roads, electrical lines, water lines, sewer pipes. the destruction is out of this world. In three weeks, Israel has dropped as many/more bombs on Gaza than the US dropped on Afghanistan in the whole year of 2019, the heaviest year of bombardment. Gaza is 141 sq miles. Afghanistan is 252,071 sq miles. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2023/11/05/israel-strike-targets-gaza-civilians-hamas/
and more Palestinian civilians have been killed in these three weeks than Ukrainian civilians killed in the nearly two years.
and the social and economic systems destroyed with all the destruction are beyond repair. whole families systems gone. religious leaders killed and their communities dispersed. teachers killed. Doctors, health care workers, first responders, ambulances…all gone. The support systems in all of that, essential to physical and some amount of emotional recovery can’t possibly be replaced.
not to mention the amount of rotting flesh under all that rubble. how does one recover all those bits of people? dispose of it all.
the devastation is unprecedented in modern times.
and the reality that nothing & no one has been able to make any of it stop is tectonic. not the UN, ICC, ICJ, human rights watchers, foreign govts, political alliances, global protests. nothing. what does that mean for the Palestinian People right now? for the rest of us, in our own countries, where the very word “Palestinian” is being criminalised, anti-genocide (imagine that such a word even has had to be coined) protesters are arrested, deportation of Palestinians is being called for…the illusions of the fabric of our societies has been unraveled, and it can’t ever be rewoven. and that is not hyperbole.
However Gaza ends us, Palestinians are going to be forced into Southern Gaza as some part of that process…and they won’t be able to survive there…the region will be further destabilised because of it.
Atrocity is being normalised. we are being conditioned to live with it. in the name of frantic end stage capitalism. what comes next is anybodies guess. but this is just the tip of the fast melting fckg iceberg.
