Why we shouldn't go to War; Any War!
By: Gary Stonecipher
While the argument to justify going to War with Iraq rages on... and while the Bush Administration again is caught in another lie... there is "Proof" of why we shouldn't go to War; Any War! This is not a 'Liberal Left' vs 'Conservative Right' issue, this has nothing to do with Politics at all, this is about a Crime which was committed against our Military Personal while in the course of performing their duties.
696,628 U.S. Soldiers were sent in 1991 to fight a War in Iraq
467 U.S. Soldiers were wounded during the War
148 U.S. Soldiers were killed during the War (half by friendly fire)
183,000 U.S. Soldiers are now disabled
9,600 U.S. Soldiers are now deceased
The United States Department of Defense was directly responsible for a casualty rate of 350 times more (and growing daily) than the Iraqi Army actually inflicted! This enormously high rate of death and disabilities amongst the Gulf War Veterans is an unforgivable and truly condemnable criminal act. This is a case of Americans, in the course of committing an illegal act, with the full knowledge of the consequences, willingly placing American Citizens in situations resulting in their deaths and injuries. In other words; Acts of intentional physical and psychological trauma, premeditated murder and treason.
The treatment by the Department of Defense, plus the lack of treatment from the Veterans Administration the Gulf War Veterans have received to date, demonstrates the extent individuals in these two Government Departments will go to to cover-up their complicity in this matter. Any member of the American Armed Forces, who in the course of performing there patriotic duty, in no way deserves to be mistreated nor used for a guinea pig for the sole purpose of furthering a politician's political agenda.
These Veterans brought home an assortment of medical problems, and in many cases, they passed them along to their wives and unborn children; AGAIN! It seems the Department of Defense did not learn its lessons after using Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, as spontaneous abortions and horrible birth defects are again problematic amongst Veterans. These Military Abortions are caused by a multitude of chemicals and experimental injections, plus the new, but not so new radiation poisoning from the illegal use of Depleted Uranium 238 weaponry.
Depleted Uranium 238 weapons are an unacceptable threat to life, a clear violation of international law and an assault on human dignity. Depleted Uranium 238 weapons are a non-conventional weapons type, as it is considered a nuclear based weapon of mass and/or indiscriminate destruction, continuing to kill combatants and non-combatants in a most inhumane way, long after its use.
Radiation Poisoning causes the mutation of the DNA structure of an individual, causing genetic mutations which are passed on to offspring. Health Effects of Radiation Exposure on Unborn Babies can be very severe: Babies are Born with their internal organs outside their bodies, without sexual organs, without spines, with no heads, with abnormally large heads, with abnormal brain function, with stunted growth, with deformed limbs and with the threat of cancer which may develop sometime later in life.
In areas where Depleted Uranium 238 weapons have been used, serious birth defects have sharply risen; "One intern at the Basra (Iraq) teaching hospital, Dr Zenad Mohammed, who works in the maternity department, noted the number of defects over a three-month period beginning in August 1998. Out of approximately 2,000 births, she recorded 10 babies born with no heads, eight with abnormally large heads and six with deformed limbs." (Ongoing consequences of the Gulf War: Casualties increase from use of depleted uranium - by Phil Gardner, World Socialist Web Site , September 8, 1999 - Site http://www.wsws.org/index.shtml)
The hypocrisy of those who call themselves 'Right to Life' is fully exposed with these Military Abortions and Maimings, as I have never seen these 'Right to Life' people champion any other causes for A-Right-To A-Life, other than their own myopic viewpoint concerning Medical Abortions.
A personal note from the author:
To the Department of Defense;
There are small children playing on soil and drinking water contaminated by Depleted Uranium 238 weapons...
You Bastards! I hope you.....
To the 'Right to Life' hypocrites;
Either expand your scope on reality, or shut-up and go away... far, far away!
