imagine 100s of those flying at your city
you might need a raincoat
You realize that is the impact from a rocket that had been shot down hitting the ground right?
I might be heavily misinformed, but I am pretty sure that those rockets are meant to disperse shrapnel, not cause structural damage as their payload is not very heavy.
I mean, during wars they used specific cratering bombs to destroy runways because tarmac is actually pretty resilient - it’s meant to survive constant wear and tear. You need a heavy bomb with a delay fuse to penetrate through the top layer, dig itself into the ground and burst from the underneath.
I’m not taking sides because the IDF also uses fragmentation bombs on civilians so fuck them.
My problem with arguments derived from this image is that most of us on Tumblr have always lived in relative peace and yet there’s people out there who pretend to know war.
That’s exactly what they’re designed for. They aren’t built to cause structural damage, they’re built to completely explode before going into the ground, ensuring that their shrapnel is dispersed above the ground in all possible directions.
Source: myself and my personal experience in having the same kind of rockets fired at me by the Taliban in Afghanistan. They weren’t trying to blow up our compound, just terrorize us and shower us with shrapnel in the hopes that maybe some of it would hit us and it would injure/kill one of us. And that did happen from time to time. One reason why Hamas has been so ineffective in their rocket attacks is because unlike the base I was at in Kandahar, Israel has a state of the art missile defense system capable of giving civilians plenty of warning and even capable of shooting the rockets out of the sky.
lol uh no they’re designed like that because its fucking WWII era tech.
they aren’t designed not to kill, they are not POWERFUL ENOUGH TO KILL
and they cost about 0.05% that any israel shell does
btw you know how stupid you look crying about some katsyushas being fired at you in afghanistan, where you went half way around the world to get paid to kill people who have never even had 1% of the resources you waste daily

what perfection this is
If it’s good enough for him then it’s good enough for me
"I will never apologize for the United States — I don’t care what the facts are… I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — George H. W. Bush as Vice-president, during a presidential campaign function (2 Aug 1988), commenting on the Navy warship USS Vincennes having shot down Iran Air Flight 655 in a commercial air corridor on July 3, killing 290 civilians, as quoted in “Perspectives”, the quote of the week section of Newsweek (15 August 1988)
Things the Israel/Palestine conflict is about
- Land use
Things the Israel/Palestine conflict is not about
Things the Israel/Palestine conflict is not
- A conflict
Things it is
- Settler colonialism
- Military occupation
Spot the difference!
One is peaceful, the other likes to torch things
"Peaceful" lol, way to make me fucking laugh. Pro-Israel supports genocide and apartheid.
Anti-Israel is against abuses of the human rights of Palestinians at the hands of Israeli zionists.
Note that it’s illegal to rally in support of Palestine in Paris. But not illegal to rally in support of Israel in London.
So who REALLY caused all that damage I wonder???

I dunno, I still think your standards are too high.
A woman like that is gonna cost you an arm and a leg.
A girl like that can really leave you feeling hollow.
