Exposing Falsehoods and Revealing Truths
It is still one of my most vivid memories ever, as I’m sure it is for many others. …The planes crashing into the towers, the hysteria and the blunders of the mainstream media, the initial silence and ineptness of the white house, and people all over the world glued to their TVs as they watched in amazement the towers of the world trade center collapse like a house of cards on September, 9, 2001.
9/11, … I knew that day that what I had just witnessed was going to haunt not only the United States but the whole world for years and years to come.
Nearly 3000 innocent people were killed in the terrorist operation most of them were Americans and as voices on the American street began to call for a swift action on part of the white house to retaliate the horrific attacks, the Bush/Chiney administration wasted no time and spared no expense, as if they had it all preplanned in advance, and before we knew it the American planes were bombing Afghanistan& Iraq- two countries that never posed any threat to the US.
But what did it matter, and why should anyone care that American boots were once again on foreign grounds as long as we were told that the boys were after Bin laden and his gang and hunting down Saddam to rid the world of the threat of his weapons of mass destruction.
Surely this whole war was a set up, for Saddam never had any weapons of mass destruction but nevertheless, with the American invasion of Iraq, the Iraqis were destined to experience what it really meant to be bombarded with such weapons.
It was no secret, though may be still unknown to a lot of people, that the American and the so called coalition forces used Depleted Uranium ammunition in their air bombardment and on ground combat operations in Iraq.
For you who are not familiar with Depleted Uranium (DU) I would say that it is a carcinogenic heavy metal material that also emits alpha and gamma radiation. Once a particulate of DU has found its way into an organ such as the bone, the lungs, etc, it will be like having a tiny x-ray machine inside you, No way to get rid of it and moreover Cancer and birth defects are likely to be coming your way. It can never be cured and DU will last in the environment for eternity. Cool hey.
It is a waste material of the Nuke industry and in the battlefield it becomes aerosolized and thus its deadly dust particles become a permanent part of the world's environment. It cannot be cleaned from the environment–ever! Its use is immoral and a crime against all humanity. The U.S. is a world major producer and the American army in Iraq has used tons of it.
The official estimates say that 9/11 victims were close to 3000. but if we bear in mind that the war in Iraq was an inseparable consequence to the New York attacks, and considering the hundreds of thousands Iraqis who actually lost their lives and the thousands who are born every day with congenital deformities, mental retardation and cancer due to their exposure to the radioactivity emitted from the abundant use of Depleted Uranium ammunition throughout the years of the war on Iraq, we could so easily add a couple of more zeros to the official New York estimate and still, we would be far from the actual victims toll of 9/11.
Since May of last year, there has been a ferocious debate over the building of some Islamic cultural center near ground zero, or what was known as ground zero mosque. The American public opinion had been galvanized against this idea of a Muslim community center near the place where the 9/11 attacks happened. The main argument, including the president’s, was that choosing a spot near ground zero for the Islamic community center was totally lacking in wisdom as it hurt the feelings of the families who lost their loved ones in 9/11.
A nonprofit organization was founded in October 2001 by families of those who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks (FOS11). Its mission is to raise awareness about the effect of terrorism and public trauma and to champion domestic and international policies that prevent, protect against, and respond to terrorist acts.
Great mission indeed, but where FOS11 stand on the devastating and utterly futile Iraqi war, which has supposedly been waged on their behalf. I mean if they have been tremendously hurt by the building of a cultural community center aimed at bridging the gap between different creeds and cultures, then it would be fair to assume that the indiscriminate killing of more than one million innocent Iraqis must have been devastating news for them- putting in mind how they defined who they are and what their mission is.
I know that every human life counts and that FOS11 have been through a lot, but for that same reason I think they should have taken a firm stand against the military vendetta following 9/11 that has been tragically playing out for almost ten years.
The deaths of Iraqi children should have affected them in the same way losing their loved ones did. They, besides remembering 9/11 and participating in conferences and media events, should have explicitly said no to the post-9/11 wars on innocent people.
The families of September 11 should have made it clear that targeting innocent people with highly toxic and carcinogenic DU ammunition is not their idea of feeling vindicated or serving justice.
Their tragic loss shouldn’t have been the White House’s pretext for bombarding and shelling innocent people – who had nothing to do with 9/11 in the first place- with DU ammunition that turned their life into a nightmare that keeps recurring every time a child gets born in Fallujah or Baghdad.
Warning: The following video contains some very disturbing scenes. But we urge you to stick with it to the very end as the award winning Dateline reporter, Fouad Hady travels to Baghdad & Fallujah to investigate the devastating effects DU ammunition had on the new generation of Iraq's newly born infants.
We have some very sick psychopaths feeding on the teat at the Pentagon and Congress. The videos of Fouad Hady should be required viewing ad nauseam for all members of Congress and the Pentagon. These sorry bastards are ruining our bad name even more than it already has been. Dr Fetzer's recent interview with Lauren Moret and Chris Busby brought out the use by the US military of a new kind of weapon used in Fallujah containing a mixture of enriched U-235 and deuterium. The women of Fallujah have been told to stop having babies due to very high levels of still births and severe deformities. That's a war crime if there ever was one. The kind of war crime that keeps on giving. Israel's use of the same stuff in Lebanon is contributing to the low sperm counts in Israeli men .... approaching extinction within five to ten years. If we don't put a stop to this nonsense pretty soon, the Human Race may be finished. On a lighter note, it looks like those puppies of yours haven't been missing very many meals either. It looks like they're growing like weeds. Cute little fellers.
Yes, Danny, hate to say it, but I think "sorry bastards" applies perfectly to 99 percent of congress and Defense Department. The USA has unjustly slaughtered hundreds of thousands of innocent people in one unjust war after another.
I think using the concepts of "democracy" or "protecting their human rights" or "freedom" and other terms have been used well to manipulate most of us. They've been doing this quite successfully for a long time and it is why all of our relationships, family and friendships, have been torn apart. Our minds have been controlled and a few of us are breaking free of our programming.
Would say best everyone disengage from television and use the Internet judiciously during the time left where it is relatively free.
More "eye candy" just for fun.
good comments from Danny and Jeannon, and yeah, cute little
good to hear from both of you, (just in case you wondered if anyone
yeah, bastards and whores. disgraceful stuff this eew ess of aye and
their fellow criminals do. and they have the nerve to bitch about some other
country doing blah blah blah. nothing could possibly compare to the hideous
crap they do.
it continuously baffles me that they get away with the horrid stuff they do,
and then the whores whine and bitch because they can't balance their stupid
war-mongering budgit. dum fux. let me in there, i'll balance it, you hoes!
i for one am quite proud of our occupy people, both here and abroad,
for standing up to the crap that has gone on, with the wealthiest hogs sitting
back not putting in their fair share while regular folks struggle every week of
their lives just to keep their housing and put edibles on the table. very proud
am i of them, and glad to see Swanson and War is a (forking) crime come out
with actual wording for what many of us would like to see happen.
i wish we would see the same gusto from anti-war folks about stopping
the horrendous CRAP (way too nice of a term, just being polite) that is done
in our name here in the blech uck of aye. the shame grows on a constant
basis. i know we have a lot of good people here, who don't want wars all
over the place and the rich getting richer while kids go hungry on a regular
basis. man, who knows what is next. i mean, not to say that peace people
haven't done much and often, i just want to see more and bigger and how.
very glad we the people have each other, for in togetherness there is
some semblance of sanity, and it helps to know we are not alone.
if any of you regular contributors have any suggies to put out there
as to how to get more of this group involved, feel free to say so, okay?
people cared enough to sign on, what else can we do here?
thanks again, you regulars, it is nice to check in here and see some
comments and things happening. both of you (Jeannon and Danny)
have been great to have on this group. lovies! sandy
and Danny, very glad your bud Gina is among us. incredible slide show!!!@
