not only does USA fail to admit guilt in and apologize for (Dresden, Tokio, ...) Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Bikini, ....
it just 'happily' goes on committing atrocities and crimes against humanity ...
The "Toxic Legacy of US Assault on Fallujah" was found to be " 'Worse Than Hiroshima'", ( not covered in US, of couse, but e.g.) reported in INDEPENDENT, London, 24 July 2010

Thank you Wolf and Carol for your comments.

Its so inhumane at what their actions are causing; and the Elite Few(money hungry oil rogues) care two hoots; as they feel it wont affect them or their children; but with 'KARMA' and 'what goes around cums around', we never know; maybe one day, it will come back to bite them in the worst possible way. Btw I cant understand how, they sleep at night, knowing the truth about Depleted Uranium and its poisonous effects on human beings.

Its a sad, sad world we live in!!!

Thank you Mary for submitting this article.

What I need is a bullet prove medical research to convince the deniers of the impact of DU ammunition to human tissue.
If you ever find something like that, please send a copy to me.

Hi Mary and all. Last evening, the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp. publicly-funded station) carried a section about a Canadian soldier who has cancer as a consequence of dealing with 'depleted' (tragically, it isn't really) uranium in Bosnia. He and his wife have applied three times to the Canadian government for compensation and been refused each time. Sorry as I am for these individual human beings, I am angry that the piece made no mention whatever of the horrible impact on people who never volunteered to work with this poison. Of course I think primarily of Iraqis. This seems to me an example of where racism blinds people to the suffering of those seen as Others. In fact, we are all one - never more so than where nuclear poisoning is concerned.

STOP FUNDING WARS and any politician who supports them.

Thanks Mary. When they talk about charging Libya with war crmes; how about charging those, the US and Nato, for using these dreadful weapons first. Then get Israel for using white phophorous in Gaza.

Many great comments and thanks Mary for sharing this 'wake up' call for some who may have been sleeping through all via the clip etc..Problem is that most of them will never see this thread or watch the clip....they are busy trying to get a bimbo talking head and more corporate thugs elected to our new corporate government .

Hey, anyone up for givng up their right to vote again in the next so many willingly did in 2000...?
As for that corporate government...who missed out on the news that the Surpreme Court gave a green light to buy up congress, state and local officals/judges etc.
I guess many were not paying attention when Dubya and bubs decided to stop using our military for denfence but instead use it for invading and occupying other nations for corporate profit...via ...'preemptive strikes'..code for attack and invade a country without cause other than profit. At this point I am back to the point of the video and on topic once again.

Anyone wonder what happened and why they keep posioning the planet and all life on the planet...The people were too busy playing with their toys during the 'boom' to notice,or care about their actions...Too busy,too eager to fear for dollars to stand up and say NO FRICKEN WAY YOU CRAZY GREEDY SOB's.

So here we on a fried toxic filled planet,surrounded by death and distruction...and people still want to elect [that word is a big joke after the 2000 so called election but go with it ] Talking Air Heads to Corporate Political offices. That being the case how in the world does anyone think that anything can be done about this topic when fighting those kind of mindsets? They can't face the reality of what/who they support... much less what something like this has done and is doing to our world.

Until we get rid of those Neocons on the Supreme Court who favor all this madness and end Corporate Control via big bucks buying up any politican who throws their hat into the process it will not change. Third party,forth party , twenty parties...all can be purchased , now and in the furture . Find the head of the snake and cut it off if you want to change things...start with the ones who keep selling us out...Supreme Court Neocons...and on down the money chain to Congress ...and on to the state and local 'officals'.

You've got les than two years to do it..maybe less than one...who knows..Not I.

I couldn't watch the video for Internet connection problem. I am aware,however with the inhuman consequences of using DU.I still remember the article posted by Uhud our friend from Iraq and the pictures of the newly born children whose parents were subject to USA attacks using DU. It is a crime against human beings and the criminals who committed it shouldn't be allowed to run without punishment.Thanks Mary for this valuable article.

when humans think that they are not accountable, they become arrogant, ignorant and can do all kinds of evil things. watching these pictures of innocent dead babies was very hard, we can't imagine the pain their mothers must have felt. after 1991 US led sanctions in Iraq caused deaths of 1 million children and these two wars in 1991 and 2003 made things much worse.
please brothers and sisters in the US do what you can to stop your government from killings and war, this cycle of war must stop. i hope and pray that before the end of times we would see peace when we all learn to understand and respect each other, Ameen. peace to all.

Bee Hive, YES it indeed is very painful; can you imagine the mothers' pain, carrying that little angel, for nine months, only to find it. in this traumatic state; what pain the little baby must have endured??? GOD help us mortals, for our ongoing sins, such as these, to HIS Beloved creations.

PARSIFAL, i am afraid, no amount of Proof, will convince these evil Elite Few;( do you honestly believe that they were not aware of it in the first instance, to give up their golden duck. I believe 'Whats happening', is, ACTUALLY their 'EVIL PLANS' coming together.

SUSAN C- the government uses the soldiers(OIL), and then, just discards them, when their use is over. I have heard of many cases, where the soldiers health and claims for governmental assistance, are totally ignored; and their families are left destitute.

CARL - thank you; we need, to make every mother, aware of what her children are going to be exposed to; when they join the army. If there are
no soldiers to fight these 'UNPATRIOTIC WARS'(OIL) there will be no MURDERS
of innocent babies and fellow human beings.

CARY, yes!!! TODAY, wars are fought, to make the Rich, Richer; at the loss of lives of the poors!!!

WOODDRAGON, the NWO has their EVIL EMPIRES all over. Thank you for link.

TERRANCE - They love to 'turn a blind eye', when its their best buddies and off course, they REFUSE to look in their own backyards; its easier to blame the 'Bogeyman', they so carefully created, over the years; at last they can use the 'Bogeyman'(islamophobia) to put FEAR into the masses and use 'SCARE Tactics' to achieve all their EVIL Agendas.

MATLOOB and all others who NOTED, thank you so much.

Jae, Excellent comments!!!; very thought provoking; I only wish people would take heed and wake up, and realize that it is time to STAND UP
against this corupt and evil regime governing america. It was the people
who put them there; it is the people who can remove them. Take back your powers!!! destroy all the corporations that have taken over your government; bring back true justice and freedom ,that your ancestors fought so hard for, become the 'WE, THE PEOPLE WHO CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS, IF WE WILL.

ABDESALLAM - Sorry about your internet problem; Justice will prevail one day and these killers will answer for every single murder they have committed in every single country in this world, Inshallah(if GOD Wills) Ameen.

Patricia, painful indeed!! Its sad that almost Every government, UN are equally corrupted and power hungry; so who do we turn to, to put a STOP to these atrocities??? Look at how america the 'superpower' aids and abetts israel, in its atrocities and murders of innocent palestinians; the UN and the corrupt world puppets sit silently and watch, without lifting a finger!!! They ONLY know, how, to TALK, TALK, and TALK; as if they 'INVALIDS' who can do NOTHING about the Israeli Crminals!!!

Mary, thank you for drawing people's attention to this horror. I saw a report on this on yesterday's Al Jazeera International, the sick children, women and men, in Palastine hooked to tubes due to various types of cancers from the DU dust all over. And the other regions and the effects of this poison have been pointed out, it is so very horrific. These images are so horrible, I really have no words to express my disgust and anger. I cannot find other words than " heartless, mindless monsters", who inflict this pure torture on fellow human beings and go to sleep at night only to have it repeated again and again. I so hope that our appeals to American citizens as well as European citizens are taken with utmost urgency. These perpetrators are massmurdering so called "elite", with only one motivation. $$$$$..........................and the price is whatever it needs to be .Lying, stealing murdering, covering it all up and starting from the beginning.... People of the world, America, as well as the Israeli government, have played with your minds far too long, have gotten away with unspeakable crimes, and never been held accountable for anything. They have always justified or denied, usually blaming "terrorists" and tried to wipe their slate clean of any wrongdoing. Please, wake up from your slumber, this is real, your government has the most evil people committing the worst unspeakable atrocities and has you shaking your heads over the "terrorists" instead. These government officials are the real terrorists, who will spare no effort, no right, no life to get their dirty hands on Middle Eastern resources for their corporations etc.and conquer the region with no consideration to you or anyone else. The fact that America, a superpower, has 40% of their own children living in poverty should be a good hint.. no jobs, no health benefits, except for the rich, the list goes on and on...But when it comes to sacrificing your families' lives and health, sending them to the Middle East into wars that benefit noone except the elite, this they don't have a problem with, On the contrary, this is your duty expected of you!!!! Like Mary and so many others already said, it's not too late, but please let's make a start before it will be. Let's make this a joint effort to stop the murders and crimes against all humanity and bring the guilty to justice once and for all.

Plato said "only the dead shall see the end of war" Thomas Hobbes said " that war is the State of nature and is Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish and Short." Lao Tzu said that "War was a state in discord with its self or its neighbors. General Sherman said "War is Hell" a great many Philosopher throughout the ages have struggled with the concepts of war. So too will our children pay for the wars we make it is them that will be left to suffer and deal with the aftermath.
