Hamas Pier Final Follies?

| July 10, 2024 | 50 Comments

US military’s Gaza aid pier will be permanently removed

By Lolita C. Baldor, The Associated Press

The pier built by the U.S. military to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza will be reinstalled Wednesday to be used for several days, but then the plan is to pull it out permanently, several U.S. officials said. It would deal the final blow to a project long plagued by bad weather, security uncertainties and difficulties getting food into the hands of starving Palestinians.

The officials said the goal is to clear whatever aid has piled up in Cyprus and on the floating dock offshore and get it to the secure area on the beach in Gaza. Once that has been done, the Army will dismantle the pier and depart. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because final details are still being worked out.

Another Biden masterclass in foreign policy on display. The UN has really shone here as well, with UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) spox stating roughly 500 trucks of humanitarian aid alone — never mind commercial supplies — are needed each day to meet the basic needs of the Palestinians. The pier could never hope to meet this level of support. The supplies stockpiled on the beach have sat there for the last three weeks due to IDF hostage rescue efforts and are just now being delivered to UNRWA warehouses.

But, Joe’s Handlers can tell their Hamas sympathizers they Did Something in Gaza. This was the goal all along. Thanks to AW1 Rod for the head’s up.

I want my dollar back. Or whatever my share was. I know some people don’t pay any taxes but I pay a lot every year. So it might even be that I spent $3 on the worthless pier.

KoB

Could be closer to $5…seems like I read somewhere that there’s only about 60 million or so people here that actually pay taxes But with the amount of $ that has been pissed away in the last few years and considering the debt load, $325 million is a rounding error.

Odie

And not in the people who pay taxes favor

Odie

Should have said the rounding error is not in our favor.

BlueCord Dad

Just sayin’…

Once again the DC Swamp is throwing away our tax dollars to try and buy votes. First is was the student loan debt redistribution, and then this Mongolian Clusterfuck. What can you expect from an administration full of unqualified DEI hires, morons, and perverts with their mentally incapacitated boss? We got the exact result we expected.

Odie

We’re taking it out and bringing it home as it has no military value for our opponents. I mean, it’s not like it’s a helicopters or weapons or something like that .

It’s not like the “Aid” already there won’t get seized by the Militants while they let Women and Children starve, wait, never mind…

In other news, I’ve heard that the Iranians have still failed to upright their capsized Warship, five attempts so far!

How many Hajj underwater welders have they lost so far?

Do they even have any qualified Underwater Welders to begin with?

Try Underwater Goat Fornicators and you might find a bunch.

Just ask the goats:

This exercise also proves that this type of pier technology is totally useless in the event an amphibious landing is needed. Better go back to old school like in WWII or at Inchon. At least that worked more than a few hours.

Not exactly. Nobody ever envisioned not having a trained crew on the land side. And they did indeed deliver hundreds of truckloads of supplies. That are all sitting on the beach now rotting.

No, what I think this proved, was nothing new. Don’t do things half-ass and expect him to work.

Whoever the moron who proposed the idea of using the pier in the first place should be curb stomped and fined for what it has cost the U.S. taxpayer.

It hasn’t been deployed in a real-world environment since being used to deliver humanitarian supplies in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake there. It worked fine there, but it’s not designed to work in high seas.

The program hasn’t been properly funded in years, and replacement parts are difficult to come by. (Companies that once furnished parts have either gone out of business or simply don’t carry the parts anymore.) Repairs are difficult to make because it is difficult to make precise welds on high seas.

Big Army would say it has invested in the program, but that would be a lie.

It was doomed to fail.

My guess is it was on a list of 3-5 proposed COAs that made it up to the NCA level. As the White House only gave a damn about the optics and not the functionality, they didn’t question the specifics – and many here know how difficult it is to convey key details to decision-makers unwilling to hear them.

No doubt, several officers should resign in shame over this failure and several more should have resigned in protest of the entire boondoggle in the first place… but the ultimate blame lies with only one lying dog-faced pony soldier, and we all know he has no sense of honor.

Odie

They’ll pass the blame down to the lowest officer they can who will in turn pass it down to the lowest enlisted they can find.

Hack Stone

Maybe they can recall Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Scheller, who was shitcanned for stating the obvious as to the Afghan Withdrawal. Then they can shit can him over this one too. Did anyone fact check Donald Trump when he said no officers were fired for the Afghan fiasco, since at least this guy was?

Odie

FJB… both of them.

FEB. Fuck em both.

Well, when you pull something out of your “4th Point of Contact” (parachutist reference) and the Boss says GO FOR IT. You use it as a lesson in what not to do, or “How Can we do it better next time?”

You know: Two Bags Full Sir….!

Figures, the super-duper “humanitarian pier” is neglected Haiti-surplus crap.

Ahh yes Haiti, remember the money The Clinton Global Initiative skimmed off of the Earthquake relief? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Not completely relevant to the posted subject, but it does involve Biden. Dr. Jill Biden. Somewhere in the Marine Band, there’s a master troll.

That is absolutely awesome, hope the Chief got a LOM for his efforts!

My inner band geek is gonna laugh for days on this.

That’s some damn funny shit right there!

Sounds like this.

Odie

The show has been off the air long enough not to be recognized by the current occupants “helpers and staff”.

Oh to be a fly on the wall when somebody figures it out, if they ever.do.

Forest Bondurant

In the article it reads (in part): “Michael LaRosa, Jill Biden’s press secretary, says the entire story is bunkum.”

There’s the lie right there. Anything from the White House, regardless of who said it, is lying.

LaRosa lied to the Washington Examiner – and so by extension – has lied to any American who read that article.

That pier has a peer, that appears to functions apeerently just as well. For your review I present to you, the fishing pier where fishing is not allowed… or even possible. Your tax dollars at work.

Thank God and the Seabees it’s gone.

It was never meant to work. Another money laundering scheme from the Clinton Global Initiative playbook.

Hack Stone

Can’t they turn it into a tourist attraction like the Steele Pier in Frantic City? Instead of a horse high diving from a tower, they can toss homosexuals off of it. Instead of firing air rifles at duck targets, they can fire RPGs into Israel. And the kids will love the bumper suicide vehicles.

JustALurkinAround

That anyone thought this would work is staggering. The amount of power generated by water and tides is almost unfathomable.

Not that I can’t think 6 feet deep.

As Carlin said, and I’m paraphrasing, it’s still another attempt to control nature.

“starving Palestinians”

An official survey was done recently and it turns out almost all Palestinians report that they have adequate food. Sounds like Israelis come in during the daily 4-hour IDF pause to distribute and sell food. The Palis struggle to get their own money to pay the Israelis because Hamas has laid claim to it, of course. Capitalism vs socialism in action!

Forest Bondurant

Yeah, that’s not what Cindy McCain would want people to believe.

She’s the Executive Director of the World Food Programme, another extension of the failed money pit known as the UN.

(Another lying bitch elitist…)
