noun ( pl. same)
an act or situation provoking or justifying war.
ORIGIN Latin, from casus (see case 1 ) and belli, genitive of bellum ‘war.’*
" In theory international law today allows only three situations as legal cause to go to war: out of self-defense, defense of an ally under a mutual defense pact, or sanctioned by the UN." **
Forgive me for being so blunt: SCREW the UN (United Nations ***). I know when U.S. citizens are under attack - and it is especially clear when a puny bellicose state of religious extremists fire bullets into the heads of American citizens. From the link:
Since our active-duty military won't prevent or respond to the murder of civilians - American or otherwise - it is up to civilians (American and otherwise) to defend themselves. The gentleman in the video above sounds like one balsy-S.O.B. - in my opinion a MODEL CITIZEN.
Although this man's group had complete control of several Israelis they didn't kill them. Contrast that with the treatment afforded the aid-bringers by the Israelis.
Look at our military branch responsible for the defense of U.S. interests (that includes U.S. citizens) at sea - the U.S. Navy disgraced themselves a second time by their inaction concerning the incident with the Gaza aid flotilla.
From the article linked first sentence above:
Now consider this response from a representative of the little-bitty state of Israel:
"Apologize for what?" the Israeli spokesperson says. The Israelis are investigating themselves - so if we just wait long enough for their smokescreen, ahem, investigation - they will be able to explain away shooting Americans multiple times in the head.
This monkey from Israel will never explain that one to me. If I were in charge I'd order the assassination, since it is now public American policy, of the Israelis that killed ANY AMERICAN CITIZENS. So take your self-investigation and shove it Mr. Little Puppy State Israeli Representative. And keep talking - because now that the Federal Government of America will simply kill anybody for whatever they deem "terrorist behaviour", and since "terrorist" cannot be defined - we'll just call you a terrorist Mr. Israeli tough-guy.
The mainstream media in the U.S constantly reminds Americans that violence is never the answer - that is - unless the U.S. Federal government needs somebody dead - or the Israelis need somebody dead - then it's perfectly acceptable, explainable and forgotten as soon as our lying Corporate media fills the airwaves with more of their nonsense. But perhaps it is time to shoot back at the Israelis - after all take a look at what happens to those who don't fight back:
