AN AMERICAN ISSUE
January 2, 2006
I can only say that if people are not willing to look at ALL the information, documentation and data on any issue, how can they blast other Americans who have done the research and call them ugly names? If you won't take the time to read books like Crossing the Rubicon, which is an amazing and horrifying piece of research, how can you call your fellow Americans all kinds of nasty and unflattering names because they have looked at all sides of an issue? How can you make an informed decision on something as horrific as 9/11 and Iraq, if the only information/data you have is opinions from Kerry, Bush, Rush or Shawn? It's human nature to cling to a comfortable illusion, but it's also dividing Americans at a time when we should be a nation united.
"There are some who, uh, feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is: Bring 'em on. We got the force necessary to deal with the security situation. " - George W. Bush, July 2, 2003.
What is happening right now isn't a matter of how much "butt" our troops can kick in Iraq. Our military are the finest and we support them 100%. However, a foreign policy based on lies puts our military in harm's way instead of having them home on U.S. soil as our first line of defense. It is not and never has been (until the US unconstitutionally joined the communist UN) the responsibility of our military to remove dictators around the world in any country or meddle in the squabbles of foreign countries. If this were the case, we would have already invaded communist China and Russia - the two biggest terrorist host countries on this globe.
Let me enlighten the American people about a few facts and please bear in mind: I do not belong to any group or organization, not moveon.org or any others. I do not give money or support to any of these groups or organizations. I seek only the truth and demand that my government come clean and operate within the constraints set forth in the U.S. Constitution.
How many Americans have any idea about the use of chemical weapons in Iraq? How many Americans have any idea what happened when our soldiers came back from Gulf War I? If you think the video of the commie Chinese skinning dogs and cats alive was bad, viewing a video of humans scorched by chemical weapons is enough to drive anyone to rivers of tears.
Here are a few statistics that Americans might find shocking, see Ruppert's site:
"Out of the 580,400 soldiers who served in GW1 (the first Gulf War), of them, 11,000 are now dead! By the year 2000, there were 325,000 on Permanent Medical Disability. This astounding number of 'Disabled Vets' means that a decade later, 56% of those soldiers who served have some form of permanent medical problems! The disability rate for the wars of the last century was 5 percent; it was higher, 10 percent, in Viet Nam.
"The VA Secretary (Principi) was aware of this fact as far back as [A. D.] 2000," wrote Bernklau. "He, and the Bush administration have been hiding these facts, but now, thanks to Moret's report, (it) ... is far too big to hide or to cover up!"
"Terry Jamison, Public Affairs Specialist, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, Department of Veterans Affairs, at the VA Central Office, recently reported that 'Gulf Era Veterans' now on medical disability, since 1991, number 518,739 Veterans," said Berklau.
"The long-term effects have revealed that DU (uranium oxide) is a virtual death sentence," stated Berklau. "Marion Fulk, a nuclear physical chemist, who retired from the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, and was also involved with the Manhattan Project, interprets the new and rapid malignancies in the soldiers (from the 2003 Iraq War) as 'spectacular . and a matter of concern!'"
When asked if the main purpose of using DU was for "destroying things and killing people," Fulk was more specific: "I would say it is the perfect weapon for killing lots of people!"
I have spent hours reading the material in this section on Ruppert's site. In Viet Nam the use of napalm left behind a scorched country and fried people - civilians as well as Viet Cong. Our soldiers came home and began dying slow deaths from Agent Orange and the effects of all these chemicals. I know many and correspond with them. Others I used to correspond with are now dead, including GI's who served in the first Gulf War. During Gulf War I, 300 tons of DU weaponry were used against Iraq. According to documented reports, U.S. forces have deployed more than 1,000 tons during the 2003 invasion alone.
More data on this crime against humanity can be found here. Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich, who I do not support in any way, did have a video available on his web site when he ran for president in 2004. This video in living color, unimaginable horror, captured the results of DU following the first Gulf War invasion. Cancer rates among the Iraqi people went up by 1400%. Photos of women and children burned; babies born with the most horrible birth defects, i.e. babies born with their intestines growing out of their bodies and a different head growing out of their head. An indisputable fact: DU destroys the soil for up to 400 years so an indigenous population cannot even grow food to feed hungry bellies. Other statistics show that since Gulf War I there has been a fivefold increase in cancer, especially leukemia and a five to eight fold increase in children born with genetic defects.
Quoting Jesuit Father Simon Harak who maintains close contact with the Manhattan Project, the only group that devotes itself exclusively to DU after visiting a Dr. Jenan Hassan in Basra: "Depleted uranium is 60 percent radioactive. It is also heavy metal toxic. It is a byproduct of the uranium enrichment process of nuclear weapons production from which uranium's most radioactive isotope, U235, is recovered for re-use in new fuel rods. The DU weapons used in Iraq were far more deadly, far more enduring-Japanese scientist Katsuma Yagasaki estimates that DU's radiation has a half-life of 4.5 billion years-and far less publicized than car bombs and roadside bombs. The DU was present in missiles, tank shells, and rocket-propelled grenades. Formidable at armor piercing, these weapons were known to aerosolize on impact into tiny particles that could be inhaled or ingested."
I cannot find the words to describe the effects of DU and other chemical weapons used in Iraq on the indigenous population. Our soldiers coming home from this current invasion are already dying from the effects of DU. They won't be having a "Happy New Year!" There have been many intensely researched columns over the years by respected journalists giving all the facts and numbers of how many of our soldiers have suffered and died from "Gulf War Syndrome" and how many are now coming home and dying. I have read mainstream papers (Washington Post, Sept 2, 2003, citing the US military Central Command as their source) exposing very disturbing facts, i.e., since the launch of this undeclared war until the publication of that article, more than 4,500 US troops were evacuated for "medical reasons other than combat or non-combat injuries." I was at Walter Reed Medical Hospital in late 2003 and saw the carnage for myself.
I also strongly and respectly urge Americans to get the DVD Beyond Treason: The U.S. Government's Long History of Conducting Deadly Military Experiments. See what Dr. Doug Rokke, Director of the U.S. Army Depleted Uranium Project, Dennis Kyne, NBC Medical Specialist and Veteran's Advocate and Jeuren Moret, Geological Scientist and International Radiation Expert have to say about the use of DU in the Gulf. This isn't for the weak and timid, but it should be watched and shared among friends, colleagues, family and church members. We have got to get the truth about this out to as many Americans as possible.
Long after one of Bush's rah-rah, carefully crafted public appearances or press conferences, the effects of DU and other chemical weapons will still be killing our soldiers as they return home to a fact deficient population who waved their flags in favor of this war, but never see the real causalities.
In the next few years we will see the same thing as we did after Gulf War I: babies born to our soldiers deformed in the most God awful ways in sickening numbers while their fathers slowly waste away. There will be those who automatically knee jerk and cry this can't be so! God forgive us, it is. War isn't just hell, the lasting effects are well documented. If you view all the videos I have mentioned above, it's no wonder thousands of soldiers returning from Viet Nam went insane or have never been able to get those images out of their heads. The same has and is happening with Iraq and our precious soldiers coming home who cannot get those images out of their minds. See Fallujah: The Hidden Massacre
War should always be the method of last resort. Anyone who has spent the time to research 9/11 and Bush's naked aggression against a non threatening country should be very, very afraid of what is coming in 2006. The truth about 9/11, which has birthed this entire "war on terror" is an American issue. Those who choose to stay in denial, who won't do one single minute of research if it disagrees with Bush, their favorite radio talk show host, cable network host or columnist, do so at their own risk. The rest of us weep for what has happened in the name of black gold, but we will not get down on our knees and submit to tyranny for an illusion of safety.
