Depleted Uranium Wars,
the Ultimate Crime
9/11 event triggered the 'war of liberation' for Afghanistan and Iraq. And what a liberation
resulted from those wars. For many it became a liberation by death. Apart from the
war-deaths and the countless wounded and civilian deaths, Afghanistan was
'liberated' to become once again the
number one supplier of heroin in the world at a tune of 5000 tons
annually. Heroin kills too in many ways, and it is killing Afghanis as
Nevertheless, the worst killer that came out of
Afghanistan, as the public begins to recognize, is a less visible killer
that was silently spread across the
world in the form of depleted-uranium nano-particles. And those are
particles that no one can see. Some are smaller in size than the
wavelength of light that carried in the air with the physical characteristic
that is typical for the dispersion of a gas. Those minuscule radioactive particles
have never existed in the natural environment until now. And now they are
everywhere. According to conservative estimates as total mass of 2.8 million kilograms of uranium has been
vaporized in DU-weapons and become a part of the world in which we live, where it
remains radioactive 'forever.' Some suggest that real figure is probably
twice as high. Thus the whole way of looking at the evidence
changes. In the depleted
uranium war against mankind we will never see any smoking-gun physical
evidence as we see it to some degree in the 9/11 theatre. We can only see
the result from the DU-poisoning in the world as it effects people in the
form of birth defects, cancers, and a vast array of chronic illnesses that
are historically not normal. In some cases it takes years for the evidence
to emerge. In Basra (Iraq) it was said that people's grapes and vegetables
in their gardens had mutated and could no longer be eaten, and the same
was observed in fish from the river. Obviously a new type of exploration is required that
corresponds with these radically different parameters that are involved,
before the truth is fully known. (see: The
US Military Is In DU Denial.)
modern big increase in the dumping of radioactive uranium into the
environment, which 'depleted uranium' (DU) is, began with the Tora Bora
bombing in Afghanistan in 2002. The 15,000 pound 'fuel-air' bombs that
were used in Afghanistan to crack
underground bunkers, utilized uranium oxide as fuel that burns in the air at
temperatures between 10-20,000 degrees Celsius. They were called the 'daisy cutters,'
because their intense deadly fire typically spread over a wide area in the shape of a daisy. The immense air pressure
from this enormously intense fire kills everyone in its range and collapses buildings and
ever underground structures while the uranium itself vaporises into sub microscopic
particles that are dispersed into the air and carried around the world
with the winds. An estimated 800,000 Kg of uranium was vaporized in this
manner in Afghanistan, the equivalent in alpha emitters to 160,000 modern nuclear bombs. The evaporation of
this massive amount of uranium into fine particles that
are dumped into the environment, with some of it being carried around the
world, is typical for all depleted uranium type munitions and bombs. Close
to two million kilograms of DU was used in Iraq where the human suffering
and death toll has been most intense.
evidence that the
public presents on the Internet, the resulting wave of uranium dust from
the Tora Bora bombing, for example, was registered as far away as England at the
Aldermaston monitoring station. Thus with the introduction of depleted
uranium (DU) into a wide range of weaponry a new page of history was opened up
that became uglier with each new wave of DU-poisoning being added to the wave of death that
began with the DU-poisoning
of the environment during the First Iraq War in 1991. The resulting effects
from this growing mass-poisoning of our planet are gradually beginning to unfold.
the term 'DU' stands for 'depleted uranium.' The term is used as a
deception. For weapons purposes and in terms of it deadly effects there this nothing
depleted about it.
so-called 'depleted uranium' is depleted only in terms of its usefulness for making
atom bombs or power-reactor fuel. Depleted uranium has 40% to 50% of its
fissionable component removed that is essential for bombs and for nuclear
power reactors. In any
other respect the so-called depleted uranium has lost none of its
qualities, including its deadly qualities in the form of alpha radiation
that is inherent in all forms of uranium.
Natural uranium contains
99.3% of the non-fissionable form of uranium U238, and 0.7% of the fissionable isotope
U235. The 0.7% of U235 provides neutron radiation that is rich enough in
the natural concentration
to power a nuclear power reactors moderated by heavy water or graphite.
Modern light water reactors, however, which are are more efficient and less expensive to
build, require enriched fuel in the 3%
range of U235 concentration. The
residue of the enrichment process to produce this fuel is called 'depleted uranium.'
(Bombs require a much higher concentration, but uranium bombs are rarely
used anymore in nuclear weapons. Plutonium is a more 'ideal' fission
material for nuclear weapons.)
principle 'depleted uranium'
consists of 99.7% of uranium U238, a powerful emitter of alpha radiation
that causes biological damage, and 0.3% of the fissionable U235 that is of
negligible significance as a neutron emitter. The reduced amount of the fissionable U235 in DU makes the
DU a waste product for the nuclear-power industry. This waste
product could be converted back into to useful fuel in a fast breeder reactor.
The fast breeder reactors, however, appear to have been banned for political
reasons since every major component of the fast breeder program has been
shut down. Thus, by shutting the fast breeder program down, the potential resource
that it would use has become a waste product that has become a major storage
liability for the industry, which makes is dirt-cheap for weapons production.
the current political environment the enriched reactor fuel that the nuclear
power industry requires is produced by separating the fissionable U235 out
from either natural uranium or from from the uranium of spent reactor fuel in which the U235
concentration has dropped below a certain threshold. In both cases, what
is left over
is called, depleted uranium. In practice the DU that is used to enhance
munitions and the (non-nuclear) uranium-enhanced bombs comes from spent reactor
fuel. As such, the DU typically contains some of the fission by-products that makes radioactive
waste a storage liability. For military purposes, however, that doesn't
matter since all types of depleted uranium are
equally as efficient. In either case the physical properties of the uranium metal
remains the same, which is the chief factor for which uranium
is used in non-nuclear weapons and bombs, the kind that were commonly used
in the Second Iraq War, which were essentially 'dirty' bombs.
uranium (DU) is ideal in military applications for two physical properties that are unique
to uranium as a metal. One is that the metal it is extremely heavy and
extremely dense. It is thereby able to penetrate the armor of tanks or
thick concrete like cutting through a block of butter with a hot knife.
And it really does become a hot knife. That's the other quality
for which DU is used by the military. Uranium is extremely flammable at
high temperatures. On impact the uranium metal heats up and then explodes. The
impact friction heats the uranium so intensely that the metal becomes flammable and burns
up in an extremely high temperature explosion. The
is said to be so fierce that some children that were playing near a tank that
was hit had their
clothes and skin burnt off instantly. Of course the 'enemy' soldiers
inside the tank suffered the same fate. The Americans soldiers called
them, 'crispy critters.'
Sadly, that is how we loose our humanity.
What we call war has now drifted far into the range of insanity and
inhumanity. And this is probably intended. The physical effects of the DU-use qualify the conduct of this
war for this
description of insanity. But
the DU story doesn't end there. There is a side effect associated with exploding
uranium that is still worse in its effect.
The superheated uranium that explodes into a fierce fire in the range of
5-10,000 degrees C., and up to near 20,000 degrees is special cases.
vaporizes in the process of burning at these enormously high temperatures.
As it vaporized it forms an invisible dust of superfine nano-sized
particles. Half of
the particles, by volume, that result from a DU explosion are so fine that they are smaller in size
than the wavelength of light, and more than 30% are said to be substantially smaller
than that (smaller than 0.18 microns - see table
of particle sizes). They are so small that they disperse in the air like a
gas. Being smaller than the wavelength of light, the vaporized DU-gas particles literally vanish from sight. Nevertheless they remain
radioactive with a half-life of 4.5 billion years. (see article on
the discovery of radiation and the
transmutation of elements)
the radioactive nano-sized particles of uranium behave like
a gas, they are easily carried with the air currents over long distances. The larger particles, of
course, get eventually rained out or settle locally onto
the ground where they become a part of the environment in which people live and
work. They also get into the water, and become a part of the
food that people eat. We really don't know for how long the minuscule
particles remain suspended and in the air and the environment before they
become washed out into the oceans.
small particles that remain suspended in the
air become a part of the air and are inhaled with the air (typically
a minimum of 50,000 particles a day). Once inside a person the minuscule particles, in some cases,
become absorbed into the
cells of the human body or become trapped otherwise, where they do their damage.
The nano-particles of insoluble uranium oxide can be as small as 1/10,000
the diameter of a red blood cell. They are most certainly small enough to
elude the filtering celia in a person's air passages and then become lodge
in the lungs, even the deepest lung sacs.
fact, the trapped particles can cause enormous damage.
act like miniature cannons that fire off high energy particles at a rate
of 12,000 shots per second that can wreck the DNA chains by blasting links out of
them or damage links, etc, or
they can cause chemical changes in cells, or injure the human cells in many other ways.
Scientist and radiation expert Dr. Rosalie
Bertell testified, “DU is a very powerful alpha particle emitter, with
each particle carrying a force of about 4.2 MeV (million electron volts).
It requires only 6 to 10 eV (electron volts) to break the DNA or other
large molecules in the body.”
Then, if a cell is damaged by DU-radiation, pray
that the radiation has killed it outright, because if it survives in its damaged
state and is still able to reproduce, that cell would no longer be fit
as a team player in the body's organization, and like a fungus would replicate
itself without restraint and become a parasite, a cancer that exists and
grows without a purpose until it disrupts the organization in the body
so severely that the person dies. That is still called “low level”
Smoke - A new kind of gas warfare)
biological damage that is inflicted by uranium is caused by two types of radiation. The typical DU
particles emit both Alpha and Beta
The Alpha radiation comes almost exclusively from the
non-fissionable uranium U238 that makes up the bulk of the DU in the 95%
range or higher. Alpha radiation can
also come from plutonium-239 and the highly exotic americium-241, which
may all be present in minute quantities as fission products if the DU is produced from spent reactor
fuel. The Beta radiation in DU comes exclusively from fission by-products.
The two types of radiation are radically different from each other.
doesn't penetrate far. A couple of inches of air will stop it, or a heavy
piece of paper. Nevertheless
the short-range penetration is sufficient to cause great damage in the
miniature environment of the human cell or a whole lot of them. Alpha radiation is a type of radiation that emits nucleonic clusters
made up of
2 protons and 2 neutrons. The clusters are ejected from the core of the
radiating atom with a velocity equal to 1/20th the speed of light. The
biological damage that even the tiniest speck of an alpha emitter can cause,
becomes soon large enough that it can be seen visibly. In the human lung tissue
alpha-damaged cells typically
appear in star like
clusters as shown on one of the websites. The damaged (altered) cells are subsequently
replicated. They typically spread throughout the body since they don't belong
to any specific function and multiply without control as no function controls
them. If the DU gets into the blood stream and subsequently gets stuck in
some of the most sensitive parts of the body, almost anything can thereby become effected. The end result is the development of a large array of
biologic failures including diabetes, leukemia, lung cancers, teen age breast cancers, and stomach
cancers in boys, and so on. Over 90 different diseases have so far been
attributed to DU-radiation (both Alpha and Beta Radiation). In some cases
persons are diagnosed to suffer from several different types cancers simultaneously,
or entire families being simultaneously infected, as un the case of a
family of nine. (see: Depleted
Uranium - The Perfect Monster - Kills Quietly) The most visible
evidence is found in the DU-related birth defects. Caution, you may not want to see this.

is radically different that alpha radiation. Beta radiation emits high energy electrons
from the surrounding sphere of the emitting atom. The electrons are infinitesimally minute
in mass (one trillionth the mass of a neutron),
high energy with which they are ejected in terms of speed causes considerable harm to living cells.
Beta radiation is a high energy radiation that penetrates much farther than alpha
radiation does. Nevertheless, a barrier of 3mm of aluminium
can stop it. Beta radiation is causing major damage biological damage by breaking
down chemical bonds and creating disruptive ions with their
electrical energy. The effects of Beta radiation are typically chronic
illnesses that are developing over long periods in the range of 5-30
rare cases as third type of radiation, gamma radiation is also present in DU in
minute amounts. Gamma radiation consists of high energy photons that have enormous penetrating power. A centimetre of led
cannot stop it. Thick lead shielding is typically required just to attenuate
Geiger counter can detect all three types of radiation. However, the alpha radiation
inside the human body, which makes up over 95% of all DU-radiation,
will decay long before it can reach a counter. The internal radiation that
is lodged inside a person's body is therefore not measurable.
Because of their small
size of the airborne DU particles, smaller than the wavelength of
light, and their extremely low density in the air, the airborne presence
of uranium requires elaborate processes for detection, even though a single
nano-particle of uranium is theoretically sufficient to cause a deadly
cancer if it enters the lungs, etc..
the DU story doesn't end here. It gets still worse. If the nano-particles of uranium get into
the blood stream and create DNA-defects in the reproductive system, then the human blue-print
may become gradually alerted. The resulting birth defects that have been
observed so far are varied, but often dramatic.
They are mostly too horrible to describe, with such
ghastly effects as growing tumour instead of eyes, or intestines growing outside
the body, and so forth. In Iraq, over a ten-year period following the
First Iraq War birth defects increased ten-fold over the natural
frequency, and cancers increased twenty-fold and in recent years
thirty-fold. Accurate comparable figures are not available for the Second Iraq War in which over
five times as much DU was dumped onto the country, and much of that in
the cities in the form of bombs. Against this background the thirty-fold increase
in lung cancers is probably a conservative figure. When all is told, the
actual increase in the cancer rate in Iraq, resulting from the DU-bombing
(that is till going on) might be a hundred-fold.
comparison with the Iraqi experience, the six-fold increase that is being
reported for U.S. lung cancer rate is not astonishing, but might be just
the beginning and might be echoed in other types of cancer as well. While
we might not see the fifty-fold increase in America that Iraq experienced
(that would add eight million annually to the list of cancer patients), we
will most likely still see a major increase above the near-one-million per
year that has already been observed.
sad reality is that some people say that the Iraqi deserve what they are
getting, because they are an enemy, and an enemy deserves to die, so that
the DU-bombing may continue. Most likely many in the Muslim world are
saying the same about the unfolding tragedy in America. And so, mankind is truly loosing its humanity as
human beings. No one deserves to die. No one deserves war. War is a
tragedy that is 'eating' humanity. War has become obsolete with the advent
of DU-weaponry. The purpose of war is to destroy and kill human beings.
The DU-weaponry is super-efficient for this purpose as the former
US military researcher tells Gay Alcorn explains. It kills people
people indiscriminately over long distances as its DU-poison is carried by
the wind. The military made it clear they won't give it up, regardless of
the worldwide health consequences, because the mission of war is to destroy
and kill, so, let's hide the secondary effects. The DU-weapon is as
efficient for the purpose of war as any atomic bomb. It is in effect a
nuclear weapon without the nuclear explosive. It is a weapon of mass
destruction that kills quietly and slowly and continuously for all times,
and what is more ideal about it for the military than that is the slow
kill-rate that makes the DU-wars it politically acceptable. The DU-weapons
are for all intents the ultimate weapon, except for the one glitch that
mankind cannot live with the consequences. Certainly the world's children
deserve better than having to live a personally poisoned radioactive
environment, even if the present society doesn't care.
imperials most likely have also their own cause for celebrating as the
rising human toll is putting any thought of creating a new renaissance
further and further out of sight. And more than that, the potential long
term death toll is powerfully advancing the imperial's world-depopulation
project that has been on the imperial front-burner for almost two
centuries since the time of Thomas Malthus. Of course since the imperials
and their Neocon stooges control the global 'show' almost totally the
mounting wave of horror that flows out of the modern DU-war-zones
continues unabated, with vastly more in the planning stage as the
stockpiling (pre-positioning) of 2.7
million DU-bombs in South Korea indicates. (see: Korea
And what is worse
than the increasing cancer-rate, etc., in this escalation of insanity, is
that mankind is thereby beginning to loose the DNA blueprint of
itself as a species. It is being suggested by some concerned people who
are raising this particular alarm flag on the
Internet, that Iraq has already been so deeply polluted with two-million kilograms
of uranium having been pulverized over its territory that the whole
county, or large portions of it, should be deemed technically unfit for human habitation.
Nevertheless, people still live there, though not without the dire consequences of living
in a basically uninhabitable environment. The sad reality is that Iraq,
Yugoslavia and Afghanistan are essentially no longer suitable for human
habitation, and therefore uninhabitable. (See: Depleted
Uranium is WMD)
horrific assessment that the public presents on the Internet in respect to
the DU-poisoning of our planet might well be true. It might even be an understatement if one considers that the resulting DNA damage typically becomes accumulative over
time so that the population in a heavily infected region will eventually die out if it remains
in that environment. The resulting trend could have tragic
consequences for the whole of mankind.
The radioactivity of uranium has a half-life of 4.5 billion
years. In practical terms that's
forever. We don't know yet what the long term practical effects of the global
be, but we do know that the effects observed so far have already become too
ghastly to contemplate.
effects of DU-poisoning from short-term exposure that were experienced by soldiers
serving in Iraq hint at things to come. The brief exposure of the soldiers
serving in the First Iraq War has put over 300,000 of them
disability before the year 2000. That figure now exceeds 500,000. Some
returning soldiers have secondarily 'polluted' their wives or girlfriends through intercourse,
without being aware of it, and this in some cases so severely that hysterectomy became necessary to save
the affected women's life. Thousands of poisoned veterans apparently also committed suicide
as their life had been too deeply destroyed that made living unbearable. Apparently
the situation is worse in Iraq itself as the real conditions filter out
into the open by the "scuttlebutts" that tell their stories.
Doomsday Coming For U.S. Forces In Iraq?)
the DU-exposure doesn't remain contained in Iraq. The DU nano-particles are carried
with the winds across
the world and have polluted the global environment. DU-fallout from
the Tora Bora bombing in Afghanistan had been registered in far away
England. The same has occurred from the much larger fallout that
originated with the 'Shock and Awe' bombing of Iraq in
suggested by the public on the Internet that the DU-poisoning has already severely blanketed
most of the USA. The evidence for that appears to be just beginning to
unfold. It was reported on CNN on March, 8, 2006 that a six-fold increase in lung cancer has been
experienced in the US for the first two month of 2006. The historic
yearly average of 175,000 new cases had been reached by the end of February
with 172,000 new cases diagnosed. In terms of the timing of this large
increase in new lung cancers in the U.S., the increase falls within the two to five year time-span
that has been observed for the development of lung cancer if one starts
counting backwards. That takes us to the Tora Bora bombing in Afghanistan
in October 2002, and the 'Shock and Awe' bombing
in Iraq five months later. This unfolding horror show might also be
intended as a slowly dying society becomes less like a force for universal
economic development that would threaten empires. The DU-war might be a
war for the crippling of mankind and its potential to create a new renaissance
on this planet.
The meteorological mechanism
certainly does exists for the DU
pollutants from the battlefields in South Asia to reach America (first and
foremost). The battlefield output
falls within the northern Hadley Band of the Intertropical Convergence Zone
in which the tropical trade winds occur. On the American continent the
pollutants are subsequently carried northward from the intertropical zone by the polar anticyclone that flows out
of northern Canada into the Gulf of Mexico and then returns northward across the
U.S. Atlantic region where most of the US population is concentrated, and
from there partially across the Atlantic back to the arctic in a continuous circular
pattern. Another path for the fallout to reach America from the battle
fields in South Asia is provided by the northern jet streams that
carry the fallout from South Asia directly into the
USA coming in from the West,
The massive increase in lung cancers that has bee
observed may be due to the DU-pollution that became concentrated in the USA
since the major DU-bombing campaigns began, especially since the "Shock and
Awe" bombing. The six-fold increase in U.S. lung cancers that
has been reported on CNN (March 8th, 2006) is not likely caused by
"increased smoking" and other conventional causes, but reflects
what its known abut the highly unconventional cancer effects of
low-level background radiation has been a part of the environment of our
planet for as long as the planet has existed, the pulverization of uranium
into fine particles in the 100 nanometre range and less has added a whole
new dimension -- a different kind of dimension -- to the low-level
planet-wide background radiation. The entire crust of the Earth has always
been a natural nuclear fission 'reactor' that contributes presently 33
kilojoules of thermal energy per year per square metre
of the surface of the Earth to its warmth, (reduced over 4.5 billion years
of radioactive decay from 117 kj/sqm/yr. -- See: Zbigniew
human biology has efficient defensive processes to deal with natural
uranium and other natural radioactive particles. The modern nuclear power
reactors are a concentrated extension of this natural fission process. The
nuclear power industry therefore produces in essence no new types of radioactive
hazards, and with proper handling the hazards that are produced can be
contained. In fact, the resulting waste products can be recycled into new
fuel and the highly concentrated radioactive waste be burnt up in the same
reactor. Compared with the large scale health hazards that are associated
with any other thermal plant for producing electricity and process heat,
the modern nuclear plants are essentially the safest and cleanest power
plants ever built.
same cannot be said about nuclear weapons, especially the depleted uranium
weapons, the dirtiest of the dirty bombs. It's the minuscule particle size
produced by the DU-weapon that the human body has no defective defences
against. And that is the difference that makes a world of difference in
the biological sphere. All low-level background radiation is not the same!
Some day this difference will be recognized. With DU particles as small as
1/10,000 the size a red blood cell the 'DU-invaders' find the door to the
body almost totally unprotected. Also the invading pollutants are small
enough so that they don't necessarily kill the cells that they become
lodged in or nearby, but tend to just damage them, especially their DNA
structures. It's from from the damaged cells that cancers develop.
It is impossible of course, at this stage, to
forecast any future trends in the global cancer picture, but the public's reaction on the Internet
to what is already happening is
beginning to unfold -- slowly as this unfolding may be compared to the
magnitude of the problem. Some people find the
already existing increase of potentially one-million cases of lung cancer
per year quite alarming, especially since the care-infrastructure no
longer exists that could provide treatment for this rapid increase in
It also appears that the
growing sense of alarm reflects a growing
uncertainty about the whole DU-cancer issue for the lack of honest reporting.
Honesty goes out the window when truth becomes classified as a national
security secret. It might well be that the DU-poisoning, and the
enormous health problem that results,
is a staged event to give the nuclear power industry a bad image in a
future smear campaign in order that might be conjured up to shut down
nuclear power on the planet completely. So far, every scare campaign that
has been staged to shut down nuclear power on the planet has failed. The
scare campaigns failed mostly due to the high safety record that is
inherent in the modern nuclear power industry, and also because of the
world's growing need for a new power resource.
the DU-hazards have fundamentally no relationship to potential
nuclear-power hazards, the DU-hazards might be used as an excuse to shut
the nuclear power industry down on which mankind's future depends. The
vast majority of mankind could not exist on this planet without large
scale power production. Power production is the key to everything that we
regard as civilization. From efficient agriculture to the dinner table our
civilization is an energy intensive process. To advance civilization,
especially towards an Ice Age Renaissance with indoor agriculture, more
advanced energy production is a key requirement. Sine we are presently in
a neo-feudalist age in which any new renaissance is feared, it is not
surprising that one sees nuclear power and anything that is related, being
sabotaged and turned into villain. There certainly is no better way
imaginable to vilify the nuclear power industry than to have it stop
recycling its waste products and to make it's waste available to the
military to dump it into the environment in vast quantities in the most
finely pulverized form that spreads across the world. Of course that's
presently not classified as a hazard.
It appears to have
been the historic practice of
any fascist war administration
to treat the truth that it wants to conceal from the
public as a national
security secret . This
means that the field is wide open today to speculation, and also to fear as to how deeply
the DU-pollution has already penetrated the American home ground. We are
officially treated with lies, such as, 'DU-is harmless,' while the evidence
is in the opposite and is already too horrific for words to describe it. Thus one can only speculate therefore, whether the six-fold increase in
lung cancer that has been observed is merely a spike on the long term
horizon, or the start of an up-ramp.
Doesn't the public have a right know
how many more people might have been infected, that are still developing the
symptoms that might not show up for years after an infection. And how many might yet be infected according to the prevailing
DU-density in a given area? And of course, one would want to know how to prevent future
infections if that is indeed possible?
The protection of human life doesn't seem to be a thing of great concern to a
War President that has permanent war his agenda in the service of imperial
objectives. Human life is probably of no greater significance to a War
President than the nation's laws and the very Constitution that he regards
as a but "goddamn piece of paper," as the Scriptures appear to be
regarded by him that he placed his hands on while being sworn to uphold the laws and
the principles of the Constitution.
ever-mounting wave of tragedy that the public is now facing in its daily
life tells us how deeply the
fascist takeover, which Franklin Roosevelt had warned about, has already penetrated
America. The depth of the penetration is especially evident when one
that another massive campaign is now being launched to bomb another large country (Iran) with probably another enormous dose of increased DU poisoning
being spread across the world that is mankind's common home, especially
when it is already deadly in its smallest beginning. (see: Blowing
Smoke - A new kind of gas warfare)
The new campaign
for the bombing of Iran is now fast moving towards
the implementation phase in spite of all the
evidence of the dangers that such bombing campaigns bring to the whole of mankind.
In a fascist world, ruled by 'men of war,' nobody cares about that.
The fascism in America has
apparently reached so deep and become so wide-spread that the new (insane)
campaign to bomb Iran might not be stoppable by any means. Officially the pre-emptive
campaign is said to be 'required' to prevent Iran from acquiring the capacity to produce
an atomic bomb in five to ten years time (according the official US
estimate), which Iran says it has no intentions to build, Nor has any proof
been shown that Iran has plans to create a nuclear bomb in the future. Thus, the
entire insane campaign to blow up another country in a huff is evidently intended
for some other
purpose, an imperial purpose that fascism has historically been
to serve. The official reason, obviously is sheer hypocrisy, as Mr. Mark
Weber, Director of the Institute for Historical Review, points out (below)
in a recent interview
(March 26, 2006).
government has said a lot about Iran in recent months, and the rank
hypocrisy of the Bush administration in this matter is just amazing.
Bush denounces Iran for not being a democratic country, while he himself
came to office in an election in which his opponent got more votes than
he did. Iran has not attacked another country in more than two
centuries, although it has been attacked by other countries repeatedly
over the last hundred years. In 1941 two allies of the United States --
the Soviet Union and Britain -- attacked, invaded, and occupied Iran. In
the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution, Iraq attacked Iran with the
connivance and support of the United States. To denounce Iran as a great
threat to world peace is not only untrue, it's amazing hypocrisy coming
from an administration with the record that this one has.
so the DU-wars will likely continue since society doesn't care to call the
hypocrisy for what it is. Consequently more and more of the deadly
vaporized uranium will be dumped into the global environment. Nor is Iran the only country set up to be
destroyed with the more efficient non-nuclear uranium munitions and bombs.
Ira is one of many countries on the list of "centers of tyranny"
that officially tallies up the nations that don't like the 'flavour' of American democracy that has
opened the flood-gates to the new age of the rich 'for-profit-wars.'
America has made it clear that those wars are not designed to end, but are
meant to go
on for 100 years and more, apparently to keep the profits flowing.
Together with Iran, North Korea is also slated to become eliminated soon.
reported (according to the Korea Times, Dec. 23, 2005), the U.S.
military has already 2.7 million depleted uranium bombs pre-positioned in
Times 12/23.2005) And even that appears to be just another beginning as the
thermonuclear bomb has been openly put onto the table to be used against Iran.
stockpiling of 2.7 million depleted uranium bombs might also mean that their is
another 'Dresden' in the making, and one that is many times worse.
bombing of the German city of Dresden in the last days of World War II is
said to have been the most brutal single act of genocide in all history up
to that time. The bombing attack had put twice as many people to death than Hiroshima and
Nagasaki combined. In one single 14-hour circus of madness 700,000 firebombs
were dropped onto this city that had previously swelled to a city of
one-and-a-half million by a large flood of refugees from Poland and Czechoslovakia,
mostly women and children fleeing the war. The allied forces themselves were just a
few dozen miles away from the city on the night when the first of three waves of the Lancaster
bombers arrived. The pilots would likely have heard the chorus of the
people's screams had their voices not be drowned out by the drone of those
thousand Merlin engines that relentlessly powered the work horses of this
armada of death. The bombs created firestorms that became hotter than a
steel furnace, with a plume of smoke rising that could eventually be seen
in London, 650 km away.
that the city had needed at this time was one more day or two. So close
liberation. When the liberation finally came
it was meaningless. More than 260,000 corpses were collected in the
aftermath of the
estimated 500,000 people that were burned to death that night.
speaking the event was an allied attack against fascism. In real terms it
was a fascist attack against humanity, a showcase of terror to illustrate
the might of the British/American imperial machine and the 'colour' of its
the madness had a purpose. A
showcase of the West's awesome power had been desired, probably by Winston
Churchill. Such a showcase had been planned for just a few days before the Dresden
bombing. It had been planned for the
conclusion of the Yalta conference. The imperial goal apparently had been
to inspire Russia to subject itself to the awesome power of the West in the
coming postwar period, as if to say to Stalin, "resistance is futile."
it turned out the scheduled showcase of strength had been called off in
Yalta, apparently due to bad weather. However the plan apparently had not
been abandoned so that Dresden became selected for it as a backup location. It
is suggested by historians that the imperial goal had been to terrorize
Russia in to cowardice, whose soldiers were probably at the scene when the city
was still burning. The goal might have been similar to America's
"Shock and Awe" bombing of Iraq. In the more modern timeframe it appears that a four-times larger event
than the bombing of Dresden is
planned for North Korea, for which 2.7 million depleted uranium bombs have
already been pre-positioned. The evident strategic goal is to terrorize China
into subjecting itself to imperial rule, and possibly also Russia. Those
2.7 million uranium enhanced bombs would certainly stage an awesome show of western imperial
strength and resolve. But to what end? Who will bear the cost? Dresden was
rebuild as time went by. It is a beautiful and liveable city again. But
can the same be said about the world after another few million kilograms
of vaporized uranium are added to the air around the world and to the
global environment? Will the world remain suitable for human habitation?
Will its cities remain liveable?
these questions we see the face of modern fascism shining through. By all appearances
this face is the same 'face' that
we have always beheld under the emblem of the 'swastika' in its many
forms. We saw this face reflected in Maitre's wheel, in Goya's cross for
the Inquisition, an in Hitler's perversion of the swastika into an emblem
of universal terror and evil. For as long as fascism remains a feature on
this planet the swastika will remain the
enduring emblem of fascism. The swastika is the universal emblem of horror regardless over which nation, religion, or ideology it presides,
because the horror is always the same no matter where and how it unfolds
and by whose hands. In the modern days of DU warfare the swastika is also
becoming the universal emblem of suffering that mankind might soon become
unable to escape.
appears that we are nevertheless still at the beginning stages. In terms of the
progressing poisoning of the world with depleted uranium one sees no future for mankind. The only path on which mankind
appears to have a future is the
path of love for itself, for its humanity that is under attack and so
easily thrown away as worthless for countless reasons that don't amount to
anything in comparison with what we are prepared to throw away. The
pivotal point here literally is the Principle of Universal Love and its
universal expression. Do we have enough love for ourselves and one-another
as human beings to prevent any further destruction of the world in which
we live before the boundary of no return is crossed and mankind is lost.
face a unique situation in the sphere of DU-wars where the full
consequences won't show up for a decade or two. We get no feedback in the
DU-wars from our actions until it is too late to escape the consequences.
We are literally forced into a higher regime of thinking and acting that
has never been a necessity in the past. That puts us into the realm of
having to defend ourselves with the only option we have, which is our love
for our humanity as a matter of principle. Nothing less than the Principle
of Universal Love will inspire us to block the path to war, which has
become a path to DU-war, a war against humanity universally. The active
expression of the Principle of Universal Love that closes the door to war
is Our Universal Kiss. War cannot be stopped by passive means. An active
devotion to peace is required. A kiss is an active thing.
to Our Universal Kiss may be a hard path to tread as it
requires society to surrender many of its 'treasures,' such as its acquired greed,
in order to make room for its natural humanity and for it to give up its stolen profits for a productive prosperity. We must give up
our 'glee' for destroying and find our prosperity and security in building
a richer world, and throw away the sword along the way for honest cooperation among a universal
humanity of equals. That is the kind of Universal Kiss that alone builds civilizations and creates the much needed
renaissance in the world in which bombs have no place no matter by what name they are
LaRouche wrote in 2005: (concluding) Civilizations
do not vanish because they lack options, but because they foolishly
reject the changes which must be made if that civilization is to live
out the storm.

exploration is presented by Rolf A. F. Witzsche, an independent researcher,
publisher, and author of eleven novels. The novels are focused on exploring the Principle of Universal
Love, the principle that is reflected to some degree in every bright
period throughout history with the added challenge for today to give it an
active expression as Our Universal Kiss.
