Bet they don’t look at Palestinian girls like that.
soldiers aren’t monsters. They’re just doing their job
normally i don’t reblog this kind of thing but i have no idea how this utter nonsense got on my dash without some sort of correction and that “don’t be ignorant” post really got to me because it feels like this sort of thing should be common knowledge by now so
every version of this post should be reblogged with skepticism and corrections. your idiocy begins and ends when you rationalise, justify and misrepresent human suffering by posting cute pictures of soldiers carrying babies - with the caption “don’t be ignorant!” no less. this kind of mentality should not be mainstream, and you shouldn’t be okay with reblogging it. some soldiers are monstrous, because they’re doing monstrous work. any defense of it is unnecessary. your normalisation of a soldier’s work is acceptance of tyranny. it should be recognised when the orders they’re following are abhorrent.
Also, recall that time Israeli children were signing missiles during the 2006 war with Lebanon. If the above picture shows anything, it shows that IDF corrupts and indoctrinates children from a young age. these pictures of soldiers with kids they would kill in different circumstances (say if the kid was from the marginalized demographic or not being employed as pro-occupation propaganda) are so old, be it american soldiers in the numerous countries they have military presence in or Israeli soldiers.
Those pictures aren’t even fucking IDF soldiers, they’re American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq (which obviously isn’t any better than what’s pictured above), but the fact that you couldn’t even find pics to prove your asinine point is just……..
you turn and look at them like

“When you’re a girl, you have to be everything. You have to be dope at what you do, but you have to be super sweet, and you have to be sexy, and you have to be this and you have to be that and you have to be nice, and you have to — it’s like, I can’t be all of those things at once. I’m a human being.”
Gee I don’t know? Should I be arrested if I took some of the Queen’s shit?
A similar and equally ridiculous question was asked in a British newspaper related to the jewel and other artifacts stolen from the Subcontinent (now India, Pakistan and Bangladesh). It was about Koh-i-Noor; The Indian jewel in the Queen’s crown. It was confiscated from Kharak Singh in 1850 by the British East India Company and became part of the British Crown Jewels when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877. In simple words, Imperialist Britain stole it from the Subcontinent and never gave it back.
This is why I laugh real loud when folks from Europe or even USA tell me people from the “third world” are thieves and corrupt individuals. Last time I checked it was the fancy First World Folks sneaking in our lands, stealing our prized possessions and then having the shameless gall to ask if it should be returned but never returning what they stole.
Why is this even a question/debate?
