After Netanyahu says he would wait for a new U.S. president to reach a better military deal for Israel, American officials fire back.00:09 08.02.16 | 5 comments
Folks, the reason I have been seeking pictures of the region of the explosion which caused the casualties on the beach in Gaza is simple. Any burst at ground level, or below, would cause a crater. Only a burst above ground level would not. Israel has said that their artillery was firing at a point '400 meters' beyond the place where the family picnic was happening. There are basically two means of causing a shell to burst above the ground. One was invented by a guy named "Shrapnel" in the 19th century and involves a time fuze, the other is a proximity fuze invented in the US in the mid-20th century which will explode a set distance from an a target. Either will cause the shell to burst above the ground, causing casualties over a wider area, and no crater. Mistakes happen. People are only human. And some times the results of human mistakes are horrible. Sorry if reality does not meet the desires of those who hate so passionately on both sides of this issue.
