Horrific UN And US Death Statistics
Expose Obama’s Fake War On Terror

By Dr Gideon Polya

22 May, 2009

The Bush (now Obama) War on Terror has been described by sensible and humane observers of the carnage as a "fake anti-terror war". The following statistics derived from authoritative UN, US and medical literature sources bear out the racism, dishonesty and criminality of the genocidal US Alliance (the US, UK, NATO and racist White Australia).

Thus we are told that about 3,000 people were killed in the 9-11 atrocity and it can be estimated from conservative sources that about 7,000 Western civilians have been killed by Muslim-origin non-state terrorists in the last 40 years (this figure including about 2,000 racist Zionists colonizing Arab lands and ignoring mounting scientific evidence for US involvement in the 9-11 atrocity) (see “Is US responsible for 9-11 atrocity? Scientists find [unignited] nano-thermite [high explosive] in WTC dust “: " ) .

However the number of people actively or passively murdered in the Bush (now Obama) War on Terror (1990-2009) now totals 9-11 million (this figure including the 0.6 million opiate drug-related deaths, 50,000 of them American, due to the Bush - and now Obama - complicity in the US Alliance restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry) (see “9-11 excuse for US global genocide. The real 9-11 atrocity – millions dead [9-11 million] in Bush Wars [1990-2009] “: ).

Thus post-invasion non-violent excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan now total 3.2 million; post-invasion violent deaths may total up to about 4 million; post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths accordingly total 3-7 million; and post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 2.3 million (90% avoidable due to Occupier violation of the Geneva Convention i.e. 2.1 million); in addition, refugees (including the 1.5 million Pashtuns driven from NW Pakistan under Obama's robot bombing attacks) total 4-5 million – Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention (see “US Afghan Holocaust (3-7Mdead) and Jewish Holocaust (5-6M dead)”:
afghan-holocaust-3-7m-dead-jewish-holocaust-5-6m-dead- .

As of April 2009, in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories post-invasion non-violent excess deaths total 0.3 million, 1.0 million and 3.2 million, respectively; post-invasion violent deaths total about 10,000, 1.3 million and 2-4 million, respectively; post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths total 0.3 million, 2.3 million and 3-7 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.2 million, 0.6 million and 2.3 million, respectively; and refugees total 7 million, 6 million and 4-5 million, respectively – a Palestinian Holocaust, an Iraqi Holocaust and an Afghan Holocaust; a Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide and Afghan Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention. These are egregious war crimes due in part to Occupier war criminal non-supply of life-sustaining food and medical requisites demanded unequivocally by Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War – thus the Gaza Concentration Camp has been under US-backed Israeli blockade for 2 years and according to WHO the “total annual per capita medical expenditure” permitted by the Occupiers in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan is US$124 and US$29, respectively, as compared to US$6,714 for the US (see “Pro-Zionist Western holocaust denial”: ).

A good example of the monstrous disparity between asserted “terror deaths” and horrendous US-backed response is provided by the most recent Apartheid Israeli Gaza Massacre in which about 1,400 Occupied Palestinians were murdered in retaliation for zero (0) Israeli deaths from Gaza rockets in the preceding year.

The ostensible excuse for US-backed Apartheid Israel’s latest Gaza Massacre in what the Catholic Church describes as “Israel’s Gaza Concentration Camp” was “Gaza rocket terror”. However “terror” is directly proportional to the “proportion of people killed” and the ACTUAL number of Israelis killed by Gaza rockets and mortars since the start of the Second Intifada 8.25 years ago is TWENTY EIGHT (28), this corresponding to a 21st century “annual homicide rate” in units of persons killed per million per year of 0.5 (Israelis killed by Gaza missiles) – as compared to 0.5 (rapist husbands murdered by raped wives), 1.0 (violent husbands murdered by battered wives), 15 (Israelis by Israelis), 56 (Americans), 100 (Americans by guns), 164 (Palestinians killed violently by Israelis), 200 (African-Americans), 473 (citizens of Detroit, Michigan, USA) and 902 per million per year (annual Palestinian non-violent deaths through war criminal, Geneva Convention-violating Israeli-imposed deprivation) (see ”Palestinian-Israeli Death Ratios. Nazi-style Israeli Gaza War Crimes”: ).

We can usefully zero in on a further incisive example from the above statistics, specifically the homicide rate in Detroit Michigan of 473 homicides per million of population per year (for other related statistics see ”Palestinian-Israeli Death Ratios. Nazi-style Israeli Gaza War Crimes”: ).

Detroit has a population of about 1 million and this means that on average 473 people are murdered there every year. Accordingly it takes 3,000/473 = 6.3 years for as many people to be murdered in Detroit as were killed on 9-11 (very likely by the US with Israeli complicity – see “Is US responsible for 9-11 atrocity? . Scientists find nano-thermite in WTC dust “: " ) .

This statistic also means that it takes 7,000/473 = 14.8 years - less than a double term each for pro-war Bush and for pro-war Obama i.e. 16 years - for as many people to be murdered in Detroit as the number of Western civilians allegedly killed by "Muslim origin non-state terrorists" in the last 40 years (this figure including Israelis colonizing Arab lands and ignoring scientific evidence pointing to US and Israeli complicity in the 9-11 atrocity that killed 3,000 people).

While the perpetrators (as opposed to "alleged perpetrators") of most of the "terror" atrocities against Western civilians are actually unknown in the legal sense of not having been brought to trial and convicted, the perpetrators of most of the Detroit murders are African-Americans (the murder rate in the African-American community being about 4 times the US average) .

On the basis of the Iraqi Genocide and Afghan Genocide examples, should Obama (with the help of the UK, NATO, Apartheid Israel and racist White Australia) be bombing the African-American suburbs of Detroit with the US Air Force and unmanned drones, shelling, rocketing, shooting, driving hundreds of thousands of African -American Detroiters from their homes to "make America safe from African-American terrorism"?

Obviously not - Obama should be spending money not on guns and killing women and children (not to mention the men) but on "green jobs", housing, health, education etc to make life for all Detroiters happier and more relaxed and by getting rid of the Guns that kill about 29,000 Americans every year – and indeed getting rid of other factors that avoidably kill about 0.9 million Americans every year (see “Devaluation of American lives. 7 million Americans & $49 trillion lost under Bush”: ).

But Zionist-, Bush-ite-, neo-Bush-ite- and military industrial complex-beholden war criminal Obama won't even try to stop the circa 29,000 American lives lost annually from the "terror" of Gun Deaths while spending hundreds of billions of dollars actively and passively murdering about 650,000 people annually (mostly Women and Children) in the American Empire from Occupied Haiti eastward to robot-bombed Pakistan (Occupied Haiti, Occupied Somalia, Occupied Palestine, Occupied Lebanon, Occupied Syria, Occupied Iraq, Occupied Diego Garcia, Occupied Afghanistan, robot-bombed NW Pakistan) (for details see “Hey, hey, USA, how many kids did you kill today? Answer: 1,000 “: ).

Zionist- and neo-con-beholden, pro-war Obama (more a murderous slave-owner Simon Legree than a quietly acquiescent slave Uncle Tom) presides over the ongoing mass murder of 650,000 Indigenous inhabitants of the American Empire each year – and ignores the preventable death of 0.9 million Americans each year from avoidable causes ranging from Guns to smoking.

The Bush (now Obama ) War on Terror is a "fake terror war" indeed – in horrible reality it is a cowardly and racist War on Women and Children, and specifically a cowardly and racist War on Arab, Muslim, Asian and non-European Women and Children.

Dr Gideon Polya published some 130 works in a 4 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (CRC Press/Taylor & Francis, New York & London, 2003). He has recently published “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: and ) and an updated 2008 version of his 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History, Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2008: ). He is currently teaching Biochemistry theory and practical courses to second year university agricultural science students at a very good Australian university.
