Israel deploys sonic booms in Gaza

"Israel is deploying a terrifying new tactic against Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip by letting loose deafening "sound bombs" that cause widespread fear, induce miscarriages and traumatise children." The Mail and Guardian reports

These are the same sonic booms that are terrorising whales and dolphins as well as other marine animals in oceans across the planet. The oil companies (god damn them) are using sound to search for natural gas under the ocean floor (since they realise the oil is running dry). These booms are causing whales to beach themselves because their primary method of orientation and communication - ie sound - has been destroyed.

There's something so similar about the tactics and the intention of the sonic booms being used to terrorise the Palestinians and those destroying the oceans.
