2008 Pulitzer Prize winning photo: A missile, caught in mid-air, as it falls on a target in the Gaza Strip while young Palestinians scramble for safety.
"Palestinians run for cover as a missile fired by the Israeli military falls to earth during an Israeli air strike on a Hamas Executive Force building in the Nusseirat refugee camp in the centre of the Gaza strip, 25 May 2007. Warplanes pounded the Gaza Strip for a ninth day today as Palestinians continued to fire rockets into Israel despite a call from Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas for a truce."

Woah. I’m pretty sure, this horrifying picture-which just might be one of,if not the most, powerful image I ve seen in living memory-quite possibly, almost positively, was captured on the very same day that I graduated from Highschool, in the priveledged suburbs of Detroit, MI-where it was extremely extremely rare that I ever lived a day in actual fear, in fear not only for my own life, but a much more powerful fear and immense worry concerning the lives of all my loved ones. I grew up in a world truly kept a world away from this life reality (which sadly, I know, continues in many ways today..in fact, hasnt even really stopped in alll the life that Ive lived since graduating HighSchool all those years ago now). Did any single one of my Highschool teachers ever take a mere couple of days to even just, on a foundational level, break down the basics of the Middle East…Of course not! (or, if any of them did, I sure as hell remember not even once in class thinking, well that does not seem fair for the Palestinians one bit…which is to say, if any of them did, the way it was taught, no doubt, was straight out of some highly biased/Doctored sad excuses for history/politcal studies text books- themselves having been written/editorially approved by a relatively-miniscule faction of fanatical…. fireNbrimstone preaching, warhawk screeching, City on the Hill cheerleading, globalist Babel raising, flag sucking zombies infected with measley to mankind blind patriotism…. and largelybehind the scenes, morally corrupt and/or embarassingly clueless, sad excuses even for beurocrats, from either Texas or California (for nearly all of the USA s highschool textbooks compile the content of their teaching books, directly based upon the two largest markets, which are Texas & California.)
If they did show images like this, if kids growing up in public schools in America were treated as if they could handle the world as it is, and not the world how America wants us to see it/ wants the world to be (which will not be happening anytime soon ((UNLESS…)) because the system which was never fixed to begin with, of course, wishes to continue to reap the massive false idol paper profits off of a whole multitude of both, their cowardly covert actions done from the shadows , as well as whatever blatant outright violations of global / common sense law/ethical concerns they can trick the dumbed down populace into paying for. Of course, we help fund both these outrageous behavior types. violently ongoing their world shaping schemes) then I dont think it would be very long, perhaps at most a couple generations of properly taught and maximally empowered students, before there would be some major policy changes, in the right directions finalllly…. concerning what all them crooked bankster gangster, spook vouyerists and covert global game playing, weapons of death dealing millitary industrial complex etc. heads of useless industries incorporated (which near totally control this country and/or any politician they buy an election for) in the near hopeful future think they can get away with.
