Photos of Babies Deformed at Birth as a Result of Depleted Uranium (DU) 2003 photos: Dr. Jenan Hassan

My father fought Hitler in World War II for the right for his children and grandchildren to live in a FREE COUNTRY.  He was a  tailgunner and photographer in the Army Air Force and completed 52 missions over southern Germany and the oil fields of Vienna.

So, until they come to take me away to torture me along with the other Muslims at Guantanamo and the CIA’s black sites, I am going to continue posting sites that tell THE TRUTH about depleted uranium.

This evening a friend sent me links to two YouTube videos of the takeover of the National Archives two years ago by the Iraq Veteran Against the War.  One of the veterans (I think it’s Gordon Sturrock) gives an unforgettable speech about how we need to reestablish democracy in this country and arrest George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

The videos are at

The first one was taken during the IVAW takeover of the National Archives, and the second has an awesome speech with a prediction about the elections.

Ben Thompson made a promise that he would talk about what he saw in Abu Ghraib. On Saturday, September 27th, he kept that promise, testifying at the local Winter Soldier event in Madison Wisconsin. Members from around the midwest joined Thompson to talk about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to continue the work IVAW started last March at Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan outside Washington DC.

There are many people who feel the issue of nuclear disarmament is THE central issue of our age.  Like a lot of people, I suspect, I can’t even “get my head around” this problem.  It is too frightening, and I suspect that this is one reason that advocating nuclear disarmament is always a tough sell, and why public support for nuclear disarmament (and related issues like nuclear power plants and DU) doesn’t seem to get much “traction” in Washington.

At any rate, here are some good organizations and websites about this issue.  As usual, I will update this list as I become aware of other groups, and I welcome feedback and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.


P.S.  I have not included military or defense sites on this list.  There are, however, several general peace groups here, but I have not included groups which are focused on biological or chemical weapons, cluster munitions or other specific types of weapons.  I will post those at a later time, insha Allah.

The change in Administrations in 2009 did NOT mean the end of torture or the closing of Guantanamo.  AmeriKKKa is still a police state.

These sites have more information on torture, imprisonment and related issues.

Again, I will be adding to this list, so check back or contact me for more information or to suggest additions to this list.  I welcome constructive criticism, of course.

One of the true heroes of the twentieth century is Mordechai Vanunu, the man who revealed the existence of Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons and, as a result, spent TWELVE YEARS in solitary for it, and continues to be harassed and persecuted by the Zionist state to this day.

There are several websites associated with Vanunu.  Here are two, and if you know of others, please post them, and I will post any others I find, too.

Israel’s Dimona Nuclear Weapons, based on Vanunu revelations

“Must see” video about Dimona, based on Vanunu’s descriptions of the place.

THE most evil weapon in AmeriKKKa’s evil arsenal is depleted uranium.

When I found out about how horrible it is, and how long it lasts (the “half-life” is 4.5 BILLION years), I was literally in shock for almost a year.

Its use by the United States and Israel is a WAR CRIME.

To find out more about it, look at these sites, which are not influenced by the “masters of war” in the “five-sided building” (the Pentagon).
