The war in Afghanistan has reached new levels of insanity as a UN report shows US forces are killing more civilians than ISIS and Taliban combined.
For the last several decades, the US government has openly funded, supported, and armed various terrorist networks throughout the world to forward an agenda of destabilization and proxy war. It is not a secret, nor a conspiracy theory—America arms bad guys. The situation has gotten so overtly corrupt that the government admitted in May the Pentagon asked Congress for funding to reimburse terrorists for their transportation and other expenses. Seriously. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. A new report from the United Nations shows the US and its allies in Afghanistan have killed more innocent men, women, and children than the group they claim are the bad guys, the Taliban.
The report itself was published in late February, and found that Israel intentionally shot both children and journalists in the Gaza Strip during those protests. They noted that 154 out of 183 people killed at the time had been unarmed.

By: Middle East Monitor According to a report that was published on Thursday by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), seven million people in Yemen are on the verge of starvation, while 2.3 million children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition.
One-third of the total population needs humanitarian aid and protection, according to the report, which pointed out that everything is urgently needed there, including shelter, food, water, health services, sanitation and safety.
The 407 displaced families gathered in a camp outside the town of Khamir in Amran governorate (north).
The report pointed out that innocent civilians in Yemen were affected by a brutal conflict.
The report added that since the escalation of the conflict more than three million people have escaped from their houses looking for safety and security, while two million people are still internally displaced in the whole country.
The UN expressed its deep concern over the worst outbreak of the cholera epidemic in the world and pointed out that citizens are dying from treatable diseases as basic health services are no longer available.
Since the fall of 2014, Yemen has been witnessing a war between pro-government forces on the one hand and the armed combatants of the Houthi group as well as forces loyal to the former President Ali Abdullah Saleh on the other.
The war has led to difficult human and health conditions, in addition to a sharp deterioration of the economy of this poor country.
(ANTIWAR) Facing growing criticism over an attack earlier this month that killed hundreds of civilians in Mosul, the Pentagon today confirmed that it has video footage of ISIS forcing hundreds of civilians into the destroyed buildings, which they presented as “provoking the attack.” While this is designed to shift some of the blame away from the…
