The Actual Victims Toll of 9/11
“Saddam never had any weapons of mass destruction but nevertheless, with the American invasion of Iraq, the Iraqis were destined to experience what it really meant to be bombarded with such weapons.”
Dr. Ashraf Ezzat
New Yorkers dumbstruck by the mysterious collapse of the towers on 9/11
It is still one of my most vivid memories ever, as I’m sure it is for many others. …The planes crashing into the towers, the hysteria and the blunders of the mainstream media, the initial silence and ineptness of the white house, and people all over the world glued to their TVs as they watched in amazement the towers of the world trade center collapse like a house of cards on September, 9, 2001.
9/11, … I knew that day that what I had just witnessed was going to haunt not only the United States but the whole world for years and years to come.
Nearly 3000 innocent people were killed in the terrorist operation most of them were Americans and as voices on the American street began to call for a swift action on part of the white house to retaliate the horrific attacks, the Bush/Chiney administration wasted no time and spared no expense, as if they had it all preplanned in advance, and before we knew it the American planes were bombing Afghanistan& Iraq- two countries that never posed any threat to the US.
But what did it matter, and why should anyone care that American boots were once again on foreign grounds as long as we were told that the boys were after Bin laden and his gang and hunting down Saddam to rid the world of the threat of his weapons of mass destruction.
Surely this whole war was a set up, for Saddam never had any weapons of mass destruction but nevertheless, with the American invasion of Iraq, the Iraqis were destined to experience what it really meant to be bombarded with such weapons.
American Depleted Uranium ammunition.
It was no secret, though may be still unknown to a lot of people, that the American and the so called coalition forces used Depleted Uranium ammunition in their air bombardment and on ground combat operations in Iraq.
For you who are not familiar with Depleted Uranium (DU) I would say that it is a carcinogenic heavy metal material that also emits alpha and gamma radiation. Once a particulate of DU has found its way into an organ such as the bone, the lungs, etc, it will be like having a tiny x-ray machine inside you, No way to get rid of it and moreover Cancer and birth defects are likely to be coming your way. It can never be cured and DU will last in the environment for eternity. Cool hey.
It is a waste material of the Nuke industry and in the battlefield it becomes aerosolized and thus its deadly dust particles become a permanent part of the world’s environment. It cannot be cleaned from the environment–ever! Its use is immoral and a crime against all humanity. The U.S. is a world major producer and the American army in Iraq has used tons of it.
The official estimates say that 9/11 victims were close to 3000. but if we bear in mind that the war in Iraq was an inseparable consequence to the New York attacks, and considering the hundreds of thousands Iraqis who actually lost their lives and the thousands who are born every day with congenital deformities, mental retardation and cancer due to their exposure to the radioactivity emitted from the abundant use of Depleted Uranium ammunition throughout the years of the war on Iraq, we could so easily add a couple of more zeros to the official New York estimate and still, we would be far from the actual victims toll of 9/11.
Families of September 11
Since May of last year, there has been a ferocious debate over the building of some Islamic cultural center near ground zero, or what was known as ground zero mosque. The American public opinion had been galvanized against this idea of a Muslim community center near the place where the 9/11 attacks happened. The main argument, including the president’s, was that choosing a spot near ground zero for the Islamic community center was totally lacking in wisdom as it hurt the feelings of the families who lost their loved ones in 9/11.
A nonprofit organization was founded in October 2001 by families of those who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks (FOS11). Its mission is to raise awareness about the effect of terrorism and public trauma and to champion domestic and international policies that prevent, protect against, and respond to terrorist acts.
Great mission indeed, but where FOS11 stand on the devastating and utterly futile Iraqi war, which has supposedly been waged on their behalf. I mean if they have been tremendously hurt by the building of a cultural community center aimed at bridging the gap between different creeds and cultures, then it would be fair to assume that the indiscriminate killing of more than one million innocent Iraqis must have been devastating news for them- putting in mind how they defined who they are and what their mission is.
I know that every human life counts and that FOS11 have been through a lot, but for that same reason I think they should have taken a firm stand against the military vendetta following 9/11 that has been tragically playing out for almost ten years.
The deaths of Iraqi children should have affected them in the same way losing their loved ones did. They, besides remembering 9/11 and participating in conferences and media events, should have explicitly said no to the post-9/11 wars on innocent people.
The families of September 11 should have made it clear that targeting innocent people with highly toxic and carcinogenic DU ammunition is not their idea of feeling vindicated or serving justice.
Their tragic loss shouldn’t have been the White House’s pretext for bombarding and shelling innocent people – who had nothing to do with 9/11 in the first place- with DU ammunition that turned their life into a nightmare that keeps recurring every time a child gets born in Fallujah or Baghdad.
Warning: The following video contains some very disturbing scenes. But we urge you to stick with it to the very end as the award winning Dateline reporter, Fouad Hady travels to Baghdad & Fallujah to investigate the devastating effects DU ammunition had on the new generation of Iraq’s newly born infants.

The Bush administration was controlled by AIPAC. Bush was a blackmailed puppet. 911 was done by the Mossad in order to initiate a war against Islam by American stooges. The Jewish Israelis needed another Pearl Harbor in order to initiate the war against Islam and fulfill A Clean Break a New Strategy for Securing the Realm on behalf of Israel. A Clean Break a New Strategy for Securing the Realm became PNAC in the United States.
If 911 truthers keep shouting the ridiculous “Bush did 911″ they’re going to make it very easy for Israel to do a nuclear false flag in the United States.

What you describe is at the top of my list for a “sleep-less night” as well. I can see no other way for THEM to advance the War with Iran agenda.

You clearly do not know what else he was involved in, during the wars…..”secret arms sales” and “passing technologies”. What is your experience based on? You should read Jim Fitzers article regarding radiation contamination.

You’re dead-on right Brian…but, and you probably know this, the “9-11 Truthers” who only press the mantra of Bush/Cheney/Madrasas in Pakistan/Saudis funding madrasas crap are just neo-con wolves in sheeps clothing..pointing the finger at other neo-con targets instead of at the actual perps who were arrested, detained and /or interviewed by the NYPD and FBI in the immediate days after 9-11….They would have done their job if they hadn’t been shut down and we wouldn’t have spent the last 10+ yrs chasing clouds, ghosts and windmills and spreading chaos, death and destruction..

Is that the “intent” of using DU weapons, to ensure there is no future generation of “potential terrorist”? Having managed to read through the article and watch the video (embedding gone, go to YouTube), it is difficult NOT to conclude that WE are better described as “the terrorist”. Use of weaponized DU is WAR CRIME!

Israel is well known for the disproportionate retaliation syndrome. You kill one of them, they kill 77 of you. If there’s one thing we must all remember, it’s that disinfo is everywhere in this world. There are simply paid dupes and ideologue-weirdos who would back any crime at all. Arguably, there are individuals and groups that have perverted views of what the world should look like in the future. Soon, Earth will be renamed as the planet Bizarro.

The military industrial complex has found a way to make a profit from depleted uranium, at the expense of everyone that comes into contact with it. This weapon of mass destruction is used for armor as well as shells and the World Health Organization has been suppressed to condone its use with some caution. Like Standard and Poors, they were either bought off, or manipulated by powers greater than theirs, or both.

This is why anybody volunteering for military service needs his head examined. Those who were in the fray at Fallujah came back with DU particles in their lungs. Smart-assed local commanders totally leveled many hospitals in Fallujah, leveled the whole town. Dust containing DU was absorbed into the local population and unlucky, and into “patriotic” American military volunteers. They say that today’s Army is the smartest ever in our history. Wrong. It’s the stupidest. To volunteer for duty in a military theater where this stuff is used is tantamount to an attack of insanity. And, rest assured that our government cares NAUGHT for your future suffering and death. The braying hyenas at DOD are laughing their asses off as you expire. Your body parts will be made into 10-10-10 fertilizer for somebody’s lawn. If I came home in a box to Dover, the last guy I’d want there to greet my bones would be this president.
