RADIATION detectors in Britain recorded a fourfold increase in uranium levels in the atmosphere after the “shock and awe” bombing campaign against Iraq, according to a report.

A U.S. citizen who cares about the catastrophic situation in Iraq due to the destruction of the country’s infrastructure by the US-UK and the 12 years criminal  sanctions  they imposed on the Iraqi people asks: How can they?

I was in Iraq in 2001. Saw the silent and rusting water plants
bombed in the 1991 war and unable to be repaired due to the US UK sanctions on parts needed.

Visited the Bashra children’s hospital with rooms and hallways overflowing with children dying from leukemia , other cancers and diarrhea from drinking sewer polluted water.


Our members of Congress have been aware of these conditions,
far worsened by another war in 2003 and continuing now.
How can they, and the millions of Americans who
support them, proudly stand and continue to wave our flag for THEIR freedom and democracy?
