So This is the Culture of Life

I spend considerable time trying to educate myself in the big-picture issues. About a month ago, I saw President Bush on TV and he looked sick, or badly hung over. I wondered if anybody else noticed, so I created a Google Alert on the phrase “is Bush sick”. Every day I’ve been getting at least 6 articles containing Bush and sick, and the variety has been sometimes amusing and sometimes sickening.

Today’s batch brought a resource so devastating I just had to pass it on to you. Here I present excerpts from 3 of the reports. Dick Chaney is, apparently, the most evil person ever, and he and his have unleashed enough Depleted Uranium (DU) to kill off all life on the planet. By 2020 the cancer rate will be 50%.

Various quotes from Iconoclast-Texas.com:

"Yeah, the concentration of the depleted uranium particles in the atmosphere all around the globe is increasing. There are indications that the U.S. will go in June and bomb the heck out of Iran. We’re monitoring the U.S. Army ammunition factories. They have very large orders for those huge bunker buster bombs that have 5,000 lbs. of DU in the warhead."

"The soldiers from Gulf War I in a group of 67 soldiers who came back, they had DU in their equipment, in their clothes, in their bodies, in their semen, and they had normal babies before they went over there to war. They came back, and the VA did a study. Of 251 Gulf War I veterans in Mississippi, in 67 percent of them, their babies born after the war were deemed to have severe birth defects. They had brains missing, arms and legs missing, organs missing. They were born without eyes. They had horrible blood diseases. It’s horrific."

"If they were in Bradley Fighting Vehicles, they’re coming home with rectal cancer from sitting on ammunition boxes. The young women are reporting terrible problems with endometriosis. That’s the lining of the uterus malfunctioning, and they just bleed and bleed and bleed. Some of them have uterine cancer — 18 and 19 and 20 year olds. The Army will not even diagnose it. They send them back to the battlefields. They won’t treat them or diagnose them. A group of 20 soldiers pushed from Kuwait to Baghdad in 2003 in all the fighting. Eight of those 20 soldiers have malignancies."

"The simple thing is, you take tons and tons of solid radioactive waste, and you spread it all over the world, both here in the states and overseas, in combat situations and non-combat situations, do it into the ocean, then refuse to clean it up and provide the medical care. It’s that easy."

"What we have is deliberate use of solid radioactive materials all over the place and the deliberate refusal to provide the medical care that’s mandated by Army orders and regulations, Department of Defense directives, and a simple refusal to clean up all the environmental contamination that must be done by the direct Army regulation. It’s that easy. There’s no accountability. Anybody that speaks up becomes persona non grata and the attacks just come flying your way beyond comprehension."
