Since the year 1945, the United States of America has attempted to overthrow at least 50 foreign governments – including most recently that of Iran. This variety of political play-making is not just bad diplomatic policy; when US President Obama signed into law, on July 1st 2010, sanctions against Iran he was not making a careless mistake. The United States of America’s foreign policy is comparably similar to that of a cold, calculated killer.
Economic Strangulation And Military Aggression Against Iran
Sanctions are silent but terribly deadly, killing assumed ‘combatants’ and noncombatants in one cowardly sweep – take for example US sanctions against Iraq: Researcher Richard Garfield estimated that “a minimum of 100,000 and a more likely estimate of 227,000 excess deaths among young children from August 1991 through March 1998″ from all causes including sanctions.
The United Nations peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon has confirmed that Israeli troops did not cross into Lebanon during Tuesday's deadly border skirmish.
The clash started after an Israeli army unit tried to cut down trees near the Blue Line, the UN-administered border between Israel and Lebanon. Both countries said the trees were on their side of the line.
At a press conference in New York on Wednesday, Alain le Roy, the head of UN peacekeeping, confirmed that the trees were on the Israeli side of the border.
I have seen much evidence that Israel crossed over into Lebanese territory to remove a tree that was blocking their surveillance cameras. They were warned by Lebanon on several occasions NOT to cross into their territory, yet they did it anyway.
A cross-border skirmish between Lebanese and Israeli troops on Tuesday left three Lebanese troops and a Lebanese journalist dead. According to UNIFIL, the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, the trees being cut down by the Israeli Defense Force on Tuesday were located on the Israeli side of the international border

We should applaud the UN for telling the truth. Lebanon was the aggressor here and fired the first shots. Hey do you think there's a conspiracy here because you are told Israel is not at fault by the United Nations? Does it not fit your agenda?
