Tragedy in Fallujah

I remember when my daughter was born. I was so relieved when she appeared to be normal. A wreckless and somewhat wild childhood gave me reason for concern that she might not come out normal. I was terrified of birth defects.

What is happening in Fallujah, as a direct result of the weapons used by the U.S. military, is nothing short of tragic. As this article shows. The war in Iraq will continue to decimate the population long after the oil has run dry, and the military has ended their occupation. Depleted uranium shells being the culprit.

You may remember first hearing of Falluja when Blackwater mercenaries were captured and burned and dismembered. Their bodies were hung from a bridge in Fallujah. This act was widely promoted in the media. The military response was to attack Fallujah using incendiary weapons and possibly directed beam energy weapons, along with depleted uranium shells. As the first article shows, we see the effects. So sad that children have to pay the price.
