My favorite news story was when the Jews sent psychic assassins to Japan to kill off domestic terrorists.

Default Death Toll In Yemen War Far Worse Than Reported

Death Toll In Yemen War Far Worse Than Reported

Quote:
"The figure is regularly reported as 10,000 dead in three-and-a-half years, a mysteriously low figure given the ferocity of the conflict."

"Now a count by a non-partisan group has produced a study demonstrating 56,000 people have been killed in Yemen since early 2016. The number is increasing by more than 2,000 per month as fighting intensifies around the Red Sea port of Hodeidah."

“We estimate the number killed to be 56,000 civilians and combatants between January 2016 and October 2018,” says Andrea Carboni, who researches Yemen for the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), an independent group formerly associated with the University of Sussex that studies conflicts and is focusing attention on the real casualty level. He told me he expects a total of between 70,000 and 80,000 victims, when he completes research into the casualties, hitherto uncounted, who died between the start of the Saudi-led intervention in the Yemen civil war, in March 2015, and the end of that year."

No one said that no safety reports exist on vaccines, just that reporting regulations weren't being properly followed.

And where were you in the Vaccine Safety thread?
Well again, it's not that they weren't followed. The NCVIA's wording is pretty clear that they needed to issue a report by 1988, but was unclear on if/when they need to provide reports past that [so if these reports don't exist it is not against proper protocol]. The other part that is unclear is if these reports would be subject to public view or not (ie can be summoned via FOIA) [so if the reports do in fact exist, they do not necessarily need to be handed over to the plaintiff at request]. I'm also no professional in medicinal case law, so other provisions or acts could have been enacted since 1986 that supersede precedence here.

Either way, it looks to me like the plaintiff was going for a "gotcha" kind of result. They had to know the FOIA wouldn't go through (again the subpart they specifically cite is clearly not what they purport it to be), and if they made a complaint they can quietly dismiss their own claim while simultaneously claiming the DHHS didn't provide the documents. The existence (or submittal) of these documents doesn't prove or disprove anything, but these articles are making it out to be a smoking gun for vaccine dismissal. Which is not only disingenuous, but dangerously so.

► Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be taking over as the nation's Defense Minister as Avigdor Lieberman resigns.


► One U.S. pilot was killed and another was injured as a T-38 Talon military jet crashed at Del Rio, Texas' Laughlin Air Force Base on Novenber 14th, 2018 around 7:40 p.m. local time.


► UK scientists develop a quantum accelerometer which will allow for navigation without GPS, satellites or cell towers.


► German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for the European Union to create its own joint military. She also called for the creation of a European security council.


► Saudi Arabia & The United Arab Emirates have led over 5,000 military air raids on civilians in Yemen, and no one seems to give a $hit.

2 US Navy SEALs Charged in War Crime Probe

God I hate when I train people to murder civilians and they wind up murdering civilians. It's the damnedest thing.

Fix your broken link with this one. You're welcome.

I hate the war machine just as much as you do homie. On that, we can agree.
