Many Kids Will Bush America
Kill In 2008?
Dr Gideon Polya
seem to have
been demonstrating against American racism, imperialism, wars and mass
murder all my adult life from the Vietnam era of the 1960s and 1970s
onwards. Back in the 1960s decent people chanted “Hay, hay LBJ,
how many kids will you kill today?” (LBJ being US President Lyndon
Baines Johnson who presided over the Indochina War - 13 million excess
deaths in total - from the assassination of President John Fitzgerald
Kennedy (JFK) in 1963 to the accession of President Richard Nixon in
we have been chanting “Bush, Blair, CIA, how many kids did you
kill today?” or the more general “Hay, hay USA, how many
kids did you kill today?” This article by a senior biological
scientist attempts to answer this question QUANTITATIVELY using the
best available data from UNICEF (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/index.html
) and the UN Population Division (see: http://esa.un.org/unpp/
We can get
an UPPER LIMIT estimate from determining the number of children who
die avoidably on Spaceship Earth with George Bush in charge of the flight
deck. I have published a huge book recently called “Body Count.
Global avoidable mortality since 1950”. (G.M. Polya, Melbourne;
copies in some major libraries; see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/1375/247/
). Careful research over several years and involving every country in
the world ultimately obtained the estimate that 16 million people die
avoidably each year (2003 data) of whom 9.6 million are under-5 year
We can accordingly
estimate that Bush US is COMPLICIT in about 9.6 million avoidable infant
deaths on Spaceship Earth each year (26,000 daily). However complicity
is not the same as actual, actionable RESPONSIBILITY.
Bush America cannot be held responsible for every country in the world,
under International Law it is certainly responsible for all countries
actually violently occupied by the US (Occupied Iraq, Occupied Afghanistan,
Occupied Diego Garcia) or by its war criminal surrogates Ethiopia and
Racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel (Occupied Haiti, Occupied Palestine,
is clearly set out in Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative
to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War (see: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/92.htm

to ensure that fair value is paid for any requisitioned goods.

To the fullest

authorities, the medical and hospital establishments and services, public

necessary to combat the spread of contagious diseases and epidemics.

from UNICEF it can be estimated that 608,000 under-5 year old infants
die ANNUALLY in the US- or US surrogate-occupied Occupied Territories
listed above, 90% avoidably - i.e. 550,000 - and due to Occupier war
crimes in violation of the Geneva Convention.
A quick inspection
of the WHO (World Health Organization) website (see: http://www.who.int/countries/en/
) reveals that total annual medical expenditure in US dollars permitted
by the war criminal Occupiers is only $19 (Occupied Afghanistan), $82
(Occupied Haiti), $135 (Occupied Iraq), ? (Occupied Somalia) and ? (Occupied
Palestinian Territory) as compared to the following hugely greater values
for the racist, war-criminal, mass pedocidal US Alliance Occupier Countries:
$3,123 (Australia), $3,173 (Canada), $3,040 (France), $3,171 (Germany),
$2,560 (the UK) and $6.096 (the US).
Bush, Dr Rice (aka Dr Death), Bush America and indeed ALL Bush-supporting
Americans are responsible for the 550,000 avoidable under-5 infant deaths
EACH YEAR in the above Occupied countries. For detailed data and analysis
see "US Occupation & Terror & Occupation. War crimes &
huge infant deaths": http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11968/42/
, from which one obtains the following summary data:
under-5 infant deaths” / “year 2005 population” is
370,000 / 29.9 million (Occupied Afghanistan); 122,000 / 28.8 million
(Occupied Iraq); 82,000 / 8.2 million (Occupied Somalia); 31,000 / 8.5
million (Occupied Haiti); and 3,000 / 3.7 million (Occupied Palestinian
Territory) – as compared to 1,500 / 20.2 million (Occupi-er Australia)
and 800 / 6.4 million (Occupi-er Israel).
annual under-5 infant death rate” (i.e. as a percentage: deaths
for every 100 under-5 year old infants in 2005 in a particular country)
was 6.7% (Occupied Afghanistan); 2.8% (Occupied Iraq); 5.5% (Occupied
Somalia); 2.7% (Occupied Haiti); and 0.47% (Occupied Palestinian Territory)
– as compared to 0.12% (Occupi-er Australia) and 0.12% (Occupi-er
deaths for impoverished developing countries is about 1.4 times the
total under-5 infant deaths (see "Layperson's Guide to Counting
Iraq deaths": http://mwcnews.net/content/view/5872/26/
(for detailed analysis see my book "Body Count. Global avoidable
mortality since 1950" (copies in major libraries): http://mwcnews.net/content/view/1375/247/
). Accordingly annual excess deaths in the above Occupied Countries
= 608,000 x 1.4 = 850,000.
to the questions posed above are that Bush America will be responsible
for (a) 850,000 excess deaths in US- or US surrogate-occupied Territories
in 2008 (of whom well over 50% will be kids) and (b) 550,000 avoidable
under-5 infant deaths in these Occupied Territories in 2008 or 550,000/365
= 1,500 avoidable under-5 year old infant deaths DAILY.
whether state terrorism or non-state terrorism is evil and repugnant.
non-state terrorists have murdered 7,000 Western civilians in the last
40 (FORTY) years (including Israelis and assuming no US or Israeli complicity
in 9/11 - ignoring the fact that in November 2007 former President and
intelligence-intimate Francesco Cossiga of Italy announced unequivocally
that 9/11 was due to the US CIA and Israeli Mossad) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/18569/26/
21st century Bush Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been associated
(SO FAR) with post-invasion excess deaths of 1.5-2 million and 3-6 million,
respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths of 0.6 million and
2.2 million, respectively; and refugees totalling 4.5 million and 4
million, respectively (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/19121/42/
UN agency- and medical literature-derived figures Bush US is clearly
the world's #1 terrorist state and the current world's #1 for mass murder
and mass pedocide (mass murder of children).
of human beings can be complicit in such mass murder? What sort of Americans
are complicit in this mass murder? What sort of American WOMEN are complicit
in this horrendous mass murder of BORN INFANTS? Well, George W. Bush's
Secretary of State Dr Condoleezza Rice (aka Wicked Witch of the West,
Dr Death), Bill Clinton's Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and
Hilary Clinton for starters.
ugly, racist Americans such as the Racist Religious Right Republican
(R4) Bush-ites might argue that Muslim, Arab, Asian, South Asian, African,
or non-European infants "don't count" (that, of course, having
been continuous, sustained American policy since the time of the racist,
genocidal, God-fearing first European settlers of America 500 years
ago) but what about the 20,000 AMERICAN INFANTS who die avoidably EACH
YEAR because of Bush policies (see "How Bush killed 100,000 American
is undoubtedly well ahead of the rest as the world's #1 climate criminal
state, and the #1 for terrorism, and mass pedocide. US state terrorism
(USST), US climate criminality, and US nuclear terrorism are the #1
threats facing the world today.
KNOWINGLY deny, ignore, excuse, minimize, obfuscate, support, advocate
or are otherwise complicit in the mass murder of CHILDREN have crossed
the line separating decent humanity from proto-Nazi barbarism, from
the unthinkable but real, barbaric actuality of Bush America.
therefore that outstanding Jewish American investor, philanthropist,
author, activist, Holocaust hero and Holocaust survivor George Soros
has demanded the "de-Nazification" of Bush America (see: "George
Soros: Bush America needs de-Nazification": http://mwcnews.net/content/view/12714/26/
decent people do to counter this horrendous Bush American barbarism
in 2008? Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity.
Decent folk must (a) inform others and (b) act ethically by applying
Sanctions and Boycotts in relation to all their avoidable dealings with
individuals, corporations and countries complicit in this continuing
mass pedocide, this continuing, remorseless Bush-ite mass murder of
