of "God Bless America," we should put "God Forgive America"
bumperstickers on our cars. Americans, as participants in horrendous
war crimes, should ask for forgiveness. America is a killer nation—not
only do we kill Iraqis and Afghans, but we are in the process of
"After forming microscopic and
submicroscopic insoluble Uranium oxide particles on the battlefield,
they remain suspended in air and travel around the earth as a
radioactive component of atmospheric dust, contaminating the
environment, indiscriminately killing, maiming and causing disease in
all living things where rain, snow and moisture remove it from the
atmosphere," writes independent scientist and international expert on
radiation, Leuren Moret.
"Global radioactive contamination from atmospheric testing was the
equivalent of 40,000 Hiroshima bombs, and still contaminates the
atmosphere and lower orbital space today. The amount of low level
radioactive pollution from depleted uranium released since 1991, is
many times more (deposited internally in the body), than was released
from atmospheric testing fallout."
In short, we will pay for
the crimes of our government—a government several magnitudes more
destructive than the Nazis—and so will our children, and our children’s
children, in fact the entire human race will pay for 4.5 billion years
(the half life of uranium). In order to understand the incomprehensible
dimension of this, consider that the earth and solar system are 4.54
billion years old. Scientists believe the Homo sapien genus is a mere
400,000 years old.
God forgive America.
us nuclear war (and using depleted uranium is indeed nuclear war) is
required in order to save us from "al-Qaeda," a phantom created by the
very government Bush represents. In order to protect us (so we may die
from depleted uranium and other toxins released in our names), Bush
tells us we must "stay the course" in Iraq.
As the Iraqis
have learned, this "course" consists of mass murder and unspeakable
crimes. In the town of Ishaqi, Iraqi civilians—including babies and
grandmothers—have paid the ultimate price for Bush’s determination to
fight the "al-Qaeda" poltergeist. "What goes through George Bush’s mind
when he sees the dead bodies of Iraqi women and children loaded on the
back of a pickup truck like garbage? Is there ever a flicker of
remorse, a split-second when he fully grasps the magnitude of the
horror he has created?" muses journalist Mike Whitney.
Bush and his Straussian neocon handlers are not inclined to look at the
grisly photos of dead babies in Ishaqi. Instead of addressing the
issue, the Pentagon tells the corporate media the massacre of innocents
is little more than a "pattern of misinformation" contrived by
It is sincerely curious how things work.
For instance, as the war crimes committed in Haditha ripple across the
news cycle, we learn about the fate of the Christian Peacemakers Teams
members, abducted nearly four months ago by the so-called the Swords of
"A gruelling four-month ordeal for
two Canadian peace activists and a British colleague held hostage in
Iraq ended Thursday in a bloodless military operation by multinational
forces," reports CanWest Interactive.
"U.S. Army Gen. Rick Lynch said in Baghdad that the coalition forces
were tipped off to where the hostages were by someone captured
It should be noted that the Swords of
Righteousness Brigade is linked to the Islamic Army in Iraq and the IAI
is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, itself a documented British and
U.S. intelligence asset (for details, see my New Swords of Righteousness Brigades Video
blog entry from earlier this month). Evidence abounds that much of the
"al-Qaeda in Iraq" and Iraqi "insurgent" violence is the result on
Anglo-American black ops, as the capture and subsequent release of
several British SAS and American "counterinsurgency" terrorists over
the past few months reveal.
In a deranged sort of way, it
makes sense for counter-ops to kill abducted peacemakers,
humanitarians, and journalists, as Tom Fox and Margaret Hassan were
killed. It makes absolutely no sense for the Iraqi resistance to kidnap
and murder these people, most working to help the Iraqi people.
forgive monsters who slaughter the peacemakers. God forgive Americans
who tune out reality in preference for televised football games and
sit-coms while a pathological government kills hundreds of thousands of
innocent people in their names. If you believe in God, now is the time
to ask for forgiveness. Now is the time to get off the sofa and out of
the gym or mall and demand that your government stop murdering not only
Iraqis and Afghans, but the entire planet with depleted uranium and
other war-making toxins and poisons.
It will be too late on
the day you sit helplessly by and watch in horror as your child dies
from cancer caused by depleted uranium blowing in the wind. "I am
death, shatterer of worlds," declared Robert Oppenheimer, head of the
Manhattan Project, quoting the Bhagavad-Gita, after the explosion of
the first atomic bomb.
Let’s call a spade a spade—this largely ignored horror has a name: omnicide, the murder of all life on the planet.
God forgive America.
