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.

The Israeli atrocities against Gaza in the Winter of 2008/9 were not well-publicized in the West, but they were as ugly a series of war crimes as the American attacks on Fallujah or the use of chemical and uranium weapons anywhere in the Middle East.

These are some websites which show graphic evidence of how evil the Israeli attacks on innocent civilians were.  They should be viewed with caution.

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.


Some of the worst war crimes during the long war crime known as the Iraq War occurred at Fallujah.  Doctors are seeing high rates of birth defects there as a result of the chemicals used during the the brutal crushing of the resistance there.

It is not easy to find material on Fallujah.  Here is some of it.  The best known of the videos is probably “Fallujah:  The Hidden Massacre.”

We don’t  hear much in the news about Sri Lanka, but the genocide of thousands of Tamils is an atrocity that stains our conscience.  I really don’t understand it very well, and perhaps someone closer to the conflict can explain it, but I think that, as usual, there is probably it is all about racism, and perhaps the hand of Western (i.e. European and/or American) capitalism involved as well.  I don’t know much about these sites, either, and welcome comment upon them.

Most of this blog is actually about the criminals in Washington.  I’m talking about nearly everyone in government.  Here are a few sites that deal specifically with the criminality of the Bush-Cheney and Obama Regimes.
