Has the tv news told you the truth, or some version of "truthiness?
I suspect it is the usual "truthiness" (It may feel sort of like truth, but, it ain't even close)
Has the msm taken a long hard look at the massive increase in birth defects among the Iraqi children?
You know the kids being liberated? The ones being pacified?
I doubt they have.
But, I have previously and I do hope you will follow along with me while I bring you up to speed on the subject.
In 2009, November 14 and 15th I did two consecutive posts on this subject.
Their is a brief 27 minute documentary linked at the November 15th post, that I do hope you will take the time to watch, if you have not seen it already.
The documentary starts out looking back at the Napalm atrocities of the Vietnam "war"
I use the term "war" loosely, because war is nothing but wholesale slaughter of humans, that brings no peace, no freedom, no calm, no democracy.
Those are buzz words for the audience the war is being marketed too.
The documentary moves to Fallujah and Iraq.
The latest information on this sad and sordid war crime/crimes against humanity by the US forces is this.
Research, again, links the rise in Fallujah birth defects and cancer to the US assault.
When will justice be done for the children of Fallujah?
A study examining the causes of a dramatic spike in birth defects in the Iraqi city of Fallujah has for the first time concluded that genetic damage could have been caused by weaponry used in US assaults that took place six years ago.
The research, which will be published next week, confirms earlier estimates revealed by the Guardian of a major, unexplained rise in cancers and chronic neural-tube, cardiac and skeletal defects in newborns. The authors found that malformations are close to 11 times higher than normal rates, and rose to unprecedented levels in the first half of this year – a period that had not been surveyed in earlier reports.
The findings, which will be published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, come prior to a much-anticipated World Health Organisation study of Falluja's genetic health. They follow two alarming earlier studies, one of which found a distortion in the sex ratio of newborns since the invasion of Iraq in 2003 – a 15% drop in births of boys."We suspect that the population is chronically exposed to an environmental agent"
The report identifies metals as potential contaminating agents afflicting the city – especially among pregnant mothers. "Metals are involved in regulating genome stability," it says. "As environmental effectors, metals are potentially good candidates to cause birth defects.
The findings are likely to prompt further speculation that the defects were caused by depleted uranium rounds, which were heavily used in two large battles in the city in April and November 2004
You think war resolves anything? Or brings peace? Or democracy?
Then you live in a deluded mindset.
