Bombing In Iraq
By Bob Nichols
28 March, 2006
Nine days after the start of
the American president's 2003 "shock and awe" uranium bombing
campaign in Baghdad, an invisible radioactive uranium oxide gas cloud
swept through Britain's towns and countryside and throughout Europe.
Respected scientists reported
on the unrevealed gas cloud after conducting research on specialized
high volume air filters in England. Dr. Chris Busby and Saoirse Morgan
stunned Europe in a Sunday Times of London article on Feb. 19, 2006.
Their scientific paper, released March 1st, 2006,  proved the event.
With all the vigor of delusional drunkards, British nuclear and military
spokesmen predictably denied the reality of an invisible radioactive
The military claimed that
a Chernobyl-like event in the area was probably responsible, but no
explosive meltdowns of operating reactor cores have been reported or
observed in 2006 anywhere in the world. Evidence of the truth of the
gas cloud panicked the military into frantic, irrational, ludicrous
denials. The military spin was later refined and the new Chernobyl claim
In America, lightweight wannabe
spin doctor Dan Fahey issued the cover up talking points.  The "nuke
sycophants" will take up these siren call lies as per instructions.
Bush's radioactive "shock
and awe" gas cloud descended on Britain and Europe like a warm,
deadly ticking blanket and stayed throughout the American and British
shock and awe bombing campaign in 2003. Bush's radioactive cloud lasted
more than five weeks at high radioactive particle concentration levels.
There is no gas mask filter fine enough to trap this radioactive gas
and protect humans.
At Aldermaston, England,
where the data was collected and where the British Atomic Weapons Establishment,
complete with air monitoring facilities, is located, the deadly uranium
oxide gas measured about 48,000 radioactive particles per square meter.
The average radioactive dose, according to official government index
based calculations, was about 23 million radioactive particles for the
average adult male in Britain and Europe.
Yes, people breathed this
poison gas, absolutely. People throughout England and presumably throughout
Europe breathed in large quantities of this radioactive uranium poison
What are the effects of the
poison gas cloud? After a steady decline for 41 years, the infant death
rate has started inching up, many researchers think because of the Central
Asian nuclear wars. The infant death rate is the most sensitive measure
of the health of the human race. Like the proverbial canaries in a coal
mine, the tiniest babies die first.
George W. Bush, as the current
appointed manager of the senior American political and military establishments,
oversees a vast empire that knows exactly what the effect of millions
of pounds of deadly weaponized radioactive ceramic uranium oxide gas
and tiny aerosols are on the health of people throughout the world.
They used uranium munitions in Iraq anyway.
The American political and
military leaders wanted to use genocidal weapons. You might even say
the U.S. military went out of their way to use these radiation-based
genocidal weapons in Iraq. Lots of them, too.
Indeed, the American permanent
war establishment has known the effect of poisonous uranium oxide gas
since 1943. A declassified World War II memo to Gen. Leslie Groves,
director of the ultra-secretive Manhattan Project to make atomic bombs,
listed two reasons to use radioactive gas: One was to kill people, and
the other was to contaminate their land. 
A British newspaper quotes
Dr. Busby, a government adviser on radiation, as saying: "This
research shows that rather than remaining near the target, as claimed
by the military, depleted uranium weapons contaminate both locals and
whole populations hundreds to thousands of miles away." 
There were and are laws in
England that require notification of the government when levels of radioactivity
are reached around the nuclear weapons complex at Aldermaston. No notification
was made. When the records were requested, the clearly labeled "shock
and awe" time frame data was omitted.
The Defense Procurement Agency
in Bristol supplied the missing data to scientists Busby and Morgan.
The real British patriots are the ones who provided the deleted incriminating
data to Busby and Morgan.
Bush and his faithful followers,
the neocon fascists, will be remembered as securing their place in history
by exposing hundreds of millions of people to high levels of internal
radiation poisoning. Make no mistake about it; this is real radioactive
uranium gas. The Americans used this genetics changing and killing weapon
on men, women and children. It made no difference to the Americans.
The citizen opposition liberal
groups in America who only stand on the street corners with signs are
misdirecting legitimate citizen outrage and protest. These groups are
more than just not effective; they contribute to the protection of the
multi-national corporations, senior political and military leaders involved
in these pre-planned war crimes.
About ineffective protests,
the famous author Ward Churchill says: "(N)o one really cares a
whit that a sector of the beneficiary population (American protesters)
has chosen to bear a sort of perpetual 'moral witness' to the crimes
committed against the Third World. What they do care about is whether
such witnesses translate their 'professions of outrage' into whatever
kinds of actions may be necessary to actually put an end to the horror."
 When will the protesters awaken and take action to put an end to
this horror? Never? Sometime? When?
A well planned effort
The American military is
nothing if not well planned. When the decision was made to go nuclear
in conventional warfare with the promiscuous use of radiation dispersing
uranium weapons, including land mines, bullets, shells, missiles and
bombs, the proper and correct Army rules and regulations for radiological
clean-up were created as well. These rules have the force of American
law throughout the world. However, the same government that adopted
these rules is not following them, even in the United States.
Army Rules and Regulations
on Radiation Poisoning (AR 700-48 and TB 9-1300-278)  unambiguously
specify that U.S. troops and local civilians exposed to radiation poisoning
will be treated. Radiation casualties exist, and provisions are made
for their care as best as can be done for a non-curable bystander affliction:
radiation poisoning. Clean and treat rules also apply; they are just
In short, the regulations
say that if the U.S. military is going to use radioactive weapons, then
it must clean up the radiological contamination and treat the casualties.
It is consistent with the philosophy of some "if you break it,
fix it" former U.S. military leaders. The applicable rules and
regulations are a common sense approach and the only responsible radiological
warfare position for the only superpower on the planet.
The rules are not followed
even in the United States itself  but are buried away in their mountains
of paperwork. Why has this approach been rejected by the senior U.S.
political leadership? http://tinyurl.com/bk2yn
Marion Fulk, a consultant
physicist at the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, is one of the
original Manhattan Project scientists. When asked if the main purpose
for using depleted uranium was for destroying things and killing people,
Fulk was more specific: "I would say that it is the perfect weapon
for killing lots of people." 
Dr. Rosalie Bertell, a respected
scientist who serves on a variety of Pentagon committees, says about
1.3 billion people have already been killed, maimed or diseased since
the nuclear age started.  Is this the Pentagon's purpose for using
uranium munitions and rejecting the legally mandated task to treat and
Most reasonable people would
agree that racking up 1.3 billion people killed or maimed since the
beginning of the nuclear age and the American uranium bombing tragedy
spreading the gas cloud to Europe and Britain is not the "treat
and clean" approach to radioactive warfare set out in the regulations.
On the contrary, the Bush
radioactive gas cloud is just the opposite. The plain purpose of exposing
hundreds of millions of people would seem to be to kill and sicken more
people. As a rare Pentagon admission said, "The properties of uranium
do not change."
Famed former Lawrence Livermore
Nuclear Weapons Lab scientist Leuren Moret has spoken about the dangers
of so-called "depleted uranium" in 42 countries. In "Exotic
Weapons," the author, radio and film celebrity states, "Since
1991, the continued U.S. military use of dirty bombs, dirty missiles
and dirty bullets threatens humanity and all living things ... and is
turning Planet Earth into a death star."  
Massive carpet bombing of
whole countries with uranium bombs appears to be the current war fighting
plan of the U.S. military. Unfortunately, U.S. troops are the first
to be sacrificed on the altar of the neocon warfare plan for total global
As former U.S. Secretary
of State and National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger said, "Military
men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy."
 American political and military leaders never asked the "pawns"
or troops if that was OK.
In the authoritative World
Affairs Journal, Moret states: "The Korea Times reported on Dec.
23, 2005, that the U.S. military has 2.7 million depleted uranium bombs
[pre-positioned] in South Korea. It is understandable why North Korea
wants nuclear weapons." 
North Korea is just slightly
smaller than the American state of Mississippi. Two million seven hundred
uranium bombs is enough to carpet bomb with workhorse Air Force B-52s
at the rate of 10 bombs per square mile. Some researchers believe that
grid bombing with uranium bombs was used in the American war in the
former Yugoslavia. There is clear circumstantial evidence that carpet
bombing with genocidal weapons is the preferred response of the American
military to local resistance efforts.
The San Francisco-based humanitarian
and war crimes lawyer Karen Parker states unequivocally that the use
of depleted uranium in American/U.K. weapons in Iraq, Afghanistan and
the former Yugoslavia is a war crime. War crimes are punishable by imprisonment
or execution, typically by hanging or a firing squad.
America's war criminal class
of senior politicians and military leaders has a powerful reason to
lie about using genocidal weapons for at least 15 years in Central Asia
- their very lives depend on it. In Johnny's Dad's words, the senior
leaders are "filthy rotten scum." 
Upcoming war crimes trial
The chief Nuremberg war crimes
prosecutor speaks knowingly and directly across more than 50 years to
resolutely instruct American citizens on exactly what our duty is today,
right now: "Individuals have international duties which transcend
the national obligations of obedience … therefore have the duty
to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity
from occurring." 
The statement was affirmed
by the Nuremberg Tribunal and is now international law and, by extension,
American law. It is our duty as Americans to prevent crimes against
peace and humanity. The fascist administration now controlling America
and the U.S. military cannot be allowed to continue these crimes. The
world and international law holds us all accountable, and the price
It is time to impeach and
imprison members of our government for their war crimes commensurate
with their degree of complicity and guilt. If the House will not impeach
and the Senate will not put them on trial; then we, all 300 million
Americans, have a problem.
We all are citizens of this
country and the world, and, as such, we must acknowledge the incontrovertible
evidence of war crimes by the leaders of the American Expeditionary
Forces in Iraq with the use of genocidal weapons. Bush and others crossed
the line long ago when they lied to get us into the Iraq War.
They continue to lie about
the damage being done with uranium weapons. One of the comforts history
provides us is a road map out of unthinkable situations, to a more or
less tenable, workable future.
The injured and maimed and
families of the dead are due treatment and/or compensation, the cleanup
must be initiated and whole countries rebuilt. That is the true legacy
of the neocons, the new American Nazis.
What people can do
Every single day thousands
of American military and government workers handle thousands of "sensitive"
papers that "prove" the War Crimes of the American Government's
senior political and military leaders.
These thousands of people
could, if they wanted to, create havoc in the fascist administration
by providing these incriminating papers and the "smoking guns"
of innumerable crimes they hold to the public: A "paper blizzard"
to teach a whole new generation that what's right is right.
About 40 years ago, it was
thousands of pages of the "Pentagon Papers" that did the trick
with the illegal Viet Nam War and President Nixon. Thousands more pages
are needed now.
The neocon or neolib papers
like the disgraced New York Times or the conservative phantom Washington
Post no longer will do the right thing. The timid NYT took almost a
year to publish the proof of illegal NSA government spying on American
citizens. Bush then bragged about the illegal spying on network prime
We do not need "timid"
now. Far less than that forced Nixon to leave the president's office.
