Hillary, Gaza is spread out and it makes no difference
From the mouth of the potential, glass ceiling crashing Democratic 2016 presidential candidate, who brought us "What difference does it make?" comes another frightening distortion of important reality.
In a television interview, discussing the situation of Israel being forced to bomb civilian targets in Gaza, Hillary Rodham Clinton actually rationalized Hamas' use of civilian locations for weapons storage and terror launching.
The problem is, and this is something — I’m not a military planner, but Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas, part of it is is that Gaza’s pretty small and its densely populated. They put their command and control of Hamas military leaders in those civilian areas.
No, as this rambling proves, Hillary is definitely not a military planner. Nor should she be President of the US or its Secretary of State. But remember, if she is, God, please forbid!, elected president of the US she will be Commander in Chief of the military. Terrifying thought!
As for Gaza's jammed population living on top of each other because the meany, evil Israelis force them to do so, making it "the most densely populated place on earth" a widely--but falsely--repeated statistic, here are the facts from the CIA Factbook.
As the graphic vividly demonstrates Athens, Paris, Hanoi, Boston, Calcutta, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York and even peaceful Geneva and Copenhagen are among the areas with a higher population density than Gaza. Not one of these cities are vomiting rockets into civilian areas from civilian areas. President Barack Obama's (D) hometown of Chicago, which does have a relatively high murder rate of civilians by other civilians, also has a higher population density but no, government officials are not shooting forth rockets from Chicago's many houses of worship, schools or hospitals.
Hillary, dillary, dollary--just why do you think Hamas and other Muslim terrorists are digging terror tunnels beginning in homes, schools, mosques, hospitals, markets? Why are rocket launchers placed there, weapons stored in them?
Hamas deliberately stores weapons, launches rockets and digs terror tunnels from these totally civilian areas because Hamas does not care for the lives of its own civilians let alone of the Israelis.
Get the facts and you'll discover the answers to those questions make a frightening difference.
