Cheney Spoke of Need to Establish US Presece in Mid-East

by D. Burbeck Tuesday, Jun. 27, 2006 at 8:58 AM

By D. Burbeck Mike Malloy of Air America Radio said a few nights ago that in the '90s Cheney used to speak of the need to establish a U.S. presence in the Middle-East. I had never heard this before, but it came as no surprise.

Mr. Malloy had Greg Pallast on a few days later - investigative

reporter for the British Guardian Newspaper - who has discovered and

disclosed a document of the oil companies' written before the war which

states that the goal of the occupation in Iraq would be to control oil

production in accordance with what the Saudis wish. He said, essentially

it called for "shutting off the spigot" order to raise prices. Now things

make much more sense. Things are not going badly in Iraq. Things are

going just as the oil giants had planned.

I have recently been increasing my capacity for riding a bike from

two blocks (hilly area) to 3+ miles. I would gladly have reduced the

use of my car by 50% if our Gov't would not have illegally invaded

Iraq and put our troops in this horrendous harms way. But you must,

by now, understand......this administration did not illegally invade

Iraq so that you and I could drive our cars as we have in the past.

They invaded Iraq so that the oil companies and the industrial war

complex could make ASTRONOMICAL profits......the likes of which

the world has never seen! But the human costs of their mega profits

are also ASTRONOMICAL.... and should not be accepted.

To reap these profits they have not only put our troops in danger of

bombs and snipers along the roads. They have placed them in a

radiation hazard that was intense even before the "shock and awe"

mission began. Of 700,000+ troops that went to Iraq in the first

Gulf War, over 500,000 are now on disability from what is called

Gulf War Syndrome - which is a long list of painful, deadly illnesses and

birth defects in offspring - but they are all caused by the exposure

to the radiation poisoning from the illegal use of uranium weapons

in a secret fifteen-year-long nuclear war.

San Francisco Bay View Newspaper correspondent Bob Nichols

is the recipient of the Project Censored Award and has been

researching and writing about these illegal radiological weapons

for years. He states "The Pentagon knows it is a nuclear war. They

want to hide it by insisting the Nuclear Wars all have a big boom

from thermonuclear weapons." But according to all International

Conventions, these weapons are "nuclear weapons" - weapons of

mass destruction - without the mushroom cloud.

In a recent email interview Mr. Nichols had this to say when asked

if the troops are aware of the severe health problems awaiting them,

"The Troops are told exactly, precisely NOTHING - Period! That is the

way it has always been. The Los Alamos Nuclear Weapons Lab Memo

of 1991 ordered all personnel to lie about depleted uranium weapons

to maintain the "political viability" of uranium weapons. That is the long

and short of it. The Troops do not count as much as a truck. They are

truly "throw away soldiers"" in the eyes of the Brass.

It's not only our troops that have been exposed to this "planet killer",

but so have the millions of Iraqi civilians over the past 15 years.

There has been reported enormous increases in cancers and birth

defects in Iraqis, as well as our troops.

What has been established in Iraq, Mr. Cheney?

Remember the figures? 700,000+ of our troops sent.......over

500,000+ now on disability from radiation exposure after being

in Iraq only a FEW MONTHS in 1991! If our troops from GW l are

experiencing this kind of degradation of health, ask yourself how

many people of Iraq have had children with horrible birth defects

or have found out that they have cancer. Now, ask yourself how

these people feel about the US occupying their country; destroying

it and the citizens' health - forever - with illegal uranium weapons.

This radiation contamination has a half-life of 4.5 BILLION YEARS.

The insurgency is not wanting for people who are willing to drive a

car bomb to kill our troops. There are thousands upon thousands

of them, and the numbers increase day by day, thanks to the inhumane,

illegal use of uranium weapons by the US and UK Military. Do you see

the living and ever-lasting hell that has been created in Iraq? Can you

understand what we are sending our troops into?

Our government's criminal use of illegal uranium weapons is one of

the most evil things ever committed on this planet, and if you think the

people of the world are not aware of it........please think again. This is

a huge issue in the international press.

The American people would not stand for this if they knew the facts.

But we are lied to by our corporate sponsored Government, and kept

in the dark by our corporate media. They use words like "low level

radiation.....depleted uranium.....minimal and manageable risks". BULLSHIT!

That's complete, bloody-murder BULLSHIT! The experts tell us that

the so-called "depleted uranium" retains approximately 60% of its

lethal radiation but when it is used as a weapon it becomes extremely


This is a most urgent matter! We MUST put an end to the use of

these abominable, illegal, radioactive weapons.

Leuren Moret, famed scientist/whistleblower studying the fall out

of illegal uranium weapons states "The use of depleted uranium

weaponry by the United States, defying all international treaties,

will slowly annihilate all species on earth including the human species,

and yet this country continues to do so with full knowledge of its

destructive potential"

She also reported "....the American Free Press dropped a “dirty bomb”

on the Pentagon by reporting that eight out of 20 men who served in

one unit in the 2003 U.S. military offensive in Iraq now have malignancies.

That means that 40 percent of the soldiers in that unit have developed

malignancies in just 16 months." And still the government denies that

these illnesses are the result of uranium weaponry.

This is a concern to every living being on this planet, as the radiation

released in these battles is carried by the wind all around the globe right

into our back yards. Please take a few more minutes and become informed -

and inform others - about this most volatile issue. Read what the experts tell

us.....but the corporate media keeps from us. Every human being on Earth

should be screaming at the top of their lungs to stop the use of these hideous

weapons since it looks as though a 60+% majority of the American people that

are against the occupation of Iraq, are unable to end it through our so-called

democratic government.

I would like to thank Mr. Bob Nichols for his help and contributions to this
