hmm A little more than “smoke rising” 15 February 2010Posted by marisacat in 2010 Mid Terms, 2012 Re Election, DC Politics, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, Iran, Israel/AIPAC, WAR!.
Mohammed Salem, a Reuters photographer based in the Gaza Strip, won the second prize in the Spot News Singles category of the World Press Photo of the Year 2009 with this picture of smoke rising during Israel’s offensive in Gaza January 8, 2009. [UK Independent]
A little more than “rising smoke” …in this pic. A spectacular picture of White Phosphorous over Gaza. The duality seems to play off the rising minarets.
Speaking of aggression.. Spiegel has a short interview with Hans Blix on Iran:
hmm for some reason, either my system or Spiegel isn’t cooperating with “highlight”, to cut and paste…. but he states that Iran perceives a threat from the US, rather than Israel. The offshore missiles, our carriers, and the possible covert ops inside Iran. Blix also says Iran won’t just sit there and not respond to an attack.
Well, why would Iran not respond? I would assume we are counting on it…….
