World War II is sometimes described in history books as the worst military escapade of all times, and rightfully so. More than fifty million people from over fifty nations were fighting each other in theatres of war for six bloody years in which more than fifty million people were killed. But it was a 'clean' war.
World War II was a 'clean' war in that when the guns fell silent and the war ended, the murdering stopped. That, unfortunately is no longer the case. Since the beginning of the age of depleted uranium weapons in 1991 the age of the 'clean wars' was over. When the horrific Dessert Storm War against Iraq ended after a horror show of a few weeks duration the guns did fall silent, but the murdering did not stop. The utilization of depleted uranium in weapons felt behind a poisoned land loaded with sub-microscopic radioactive particles that kept on killing people through various types of illnesses.
During the ten years following the war the rate of people contracting all kinds of cancers increased 30-50 times above normal, and birth defects became so grotesque that the rivalled in ugliness the worst of the horror movies. That's the nature of a dirty war. The Second Iraq War that started with the Shock and Awe bombing and is still ongoing made matters 5 times worse, and the next wave of war promises to be 50-times worse again.
The dirty war has become a new phenomenon in the world that threatens to become globally destructive. Nor is there any place for society to flee to, where it could be safe. We can't get off the planet that we are one. We are stuck here and are condemned to suffer the consequences of our own creating. The following series of articles explore the question of whether we can survive the consequences.
War has shifted into a new phase. Nevertheless it remains what it has always been, a folly that makes absolutely no sense. Wars are not inevitable. Wars happen because foolish leaders demand war and a foolish society plays into their hand. This insanity can be avoided. Only peace is inevitable. When the warring nations have exhausted their strength and their resources, peace always resumes. Only now the question arises will this peace in the future be one without a human voice in it to be heard over the silence?
