The US attacked Fallujah twice in 2004, targeting the hospital the second time, because they didn't want the bad publicity they got when wounded civilians in the hospital were shown on TV.
They used illegal weapons, and weapons that should be illegal, such as depleted uranium weapons.
Now, again, there is proof that the suffering of the Fallujans continues although they are not being bombed at this time.
I mentioned on my radio show last year that we Southern Illinoisians are partially responsible for the increased birth defects, leukemia and other cancers in Iraq, since we have a depleted uranium weapons manufacturing company right here, in a wildlife refuge, employing lots of people. (Jobs, jobs, jobs! No morals allowed.)
One of my listeners told me an interesting story. She works as a driver for people wanting to go to the St. Louis airport, a two hour drive.
She had a Canadian professor in the front seat, and two teachers for military brats on a base in Texas in the back seat.
She brought up the fact that we make depleted uranium weapons to the professor.
The women in the back seat went nuts! They started screaming at her and the professor. The US wouldn't use those such things, and anyway, it was OK, and just SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
She said that the professor, (luckily), knew about the weapons and calmly tried to explain it to the teachers. They put their hands over their ears and refused to listen!
Yeah, but they heard!
I was pretty pleased that two women, deliberately and proudly ignorant, were exposed to the truth, as unwilling as they were to hear it.
