MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH

Miscellaneous Subjects #186: Heavenly Hope from Matthew and Hellish Horrors Made in USA
I did not think I would send you another compilation this week but I received yesterday (Tuesday) a new message from Matthew Ward - through her channeling mom Suzy - and it is such an important one and gives such great hopes that I'm sure you'll all want to read it immediately below. May I also recommend to your attention Suzy and Matthew's third and just released (May 15) new book, the shining result of their absolutely unique collaboration - no other such Earth/Heaven-mother/son collaborative tandem existing to my knowledge - "Illuminations for a New Era", available directly from Suzy through http://www.matthewbooks.com as well as her 2 previous books.
Frankly these messages from Matthew are to me one of the best sources of reliable knowledge and informed Light available today. Reading his latest one below, I'm sure you will concur with me on this. The previous one I forwarded you that Suzy read at the Wesak Festival in Mount Shasta brought the whole audience (2,000 people) on their feet for a long and heart-stirring standing ovation. Well deserved!
Then you'll find two horrifyingly disturbing articles describing the absolutely evil (I cannot find any better word to describe this) legacy of the American-led "liberation" of Afghanistan - after reading this one can only wonder in horror what it will be like in Iraq after the latest round of depleted uranium bombings close to and inside large population centers. That the world remains almost silent about the insane, abhorring crimes against humanity continuously perpetrated by the U.S. Army of mass destructions is completely baffling to me. The mass-killing and cremation of 6 millions Jews by the Nazi, now a distant memory for far too many people, looks like it is being re-enacted on a far larger scale and for possibly countless generations to come - UNLESS the ET make good on their promise of decontamination help as mentioned in Matthew's message below.
Perhaps we would help our case here if we could just ban forever the use of these diabolic depleted uranium weapons... And while we are at it, we should also forever ban the very existence of massive standing armed forces whose sole purpose is to kill and destroy...
Peace is not only a state of mind... It is also a resolve to help bring about Peace on Earth, through all possible non-violent means, with unrelenting courage and steadfast persistence.

Finally people around the world are seeing the true colors of this Administration and the depths of lies in which it has fallen. Mostly the American public is still spared this disgraceful reality by its right-leaning media. No wonder they don't seem too concerned (according to alleged polls on this) about this non-existence of those WMD in Iraq. All this shocking information is there below for you to un-cover..."
"Today I weep for my country. I have watched the events of recent months with a heavy, heavy heart. No more is the image of America one of strong, yet benevolent peacekeeper. The image of America has changed. Around the globe, our friends mistrust us, our word is disputed, our intentions are questioned.... What is happening to this country? When did we become a nation which ignores and berates our friends? When did we decide to risk undermining international order by adopting a radical and doctrinaire approach to using our awesome military might? How can we abandon diplomatic efforts when the turmoil in the world cries out for diplomacy? Why can this President not seem to see that America's true power lies not in its will to intimidate, but in its ability to inspire?... May God continue to bless the United States of America in the troubled days ahead, and may we somehow recapture the vision which for the present eludes us."
-- Senator Robert Byrd, (Dem. - West Virginia)
"A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague."

Nemesis Stalks Chicken-Hawks: Iraq Failure Fuels Countercoup (May 30)
President Abraham Lincoln famously pointed to a principle of republican leadership in a national crisis, with his optimistic epithet, "You can't fool all of the people all of the time." And all signs are that time is up for the ignoble lies of the Straussian conspirators in the United States and Israel who pushed the Iraq war, and want America involved in world imperial "perpetual wars." As of May 22, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer was gone; Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had cancelled his trip to Washington to see President Bush; Gen. Tommy R. Franks, CENTCOM chief and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars' commander, was gone; calls were being made on the floor of the Congress for the resignation of Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, the leading warmonger, and disciple of fascist philosopher Leo Strauss, in the Bush Administration; Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) was denouncing the entire rationale of the Iraq war as a pack of deliberate lies coming from the Bush Administration; and the Central Intelligence Agency had assembled a panel of retired analysts to review "what went wrong" and "whodunnit" over the concocted intelligence reports that hyped a "clear and present danger" of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, and predicted an Iraq where milk, honey, oil revenues, liberty, and democracy would flow after Saddam Hussein was defeated and ousted.
Bush Planned Iraq 'Regime Change' Before Becoming President
A SECRET blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure 'regime change' even before he took power in January 2001.
How We Got Into This Imperial Pickle: A PNAC Primer (May 26)
Wolfowitz: Iraq war was about oil (June 4)
Oil was the main reason for military action against Iraq, a leading White House hawk has claimed, confirming the worst fears of those opposed to the US-led war. The US deputy defence secretary, Paul Wolfowitz - who has already undermined Tony Blair's position over weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by describing them as a "bureaucratic" excuse for war - has now gone further by claiming the real motive was that Iraq is "swimming" in oil. The latest comments were made by Mr Wolfowitz in an address to delegates at an Asian security summit in Singapore at the weekend, and reported today by German newspapers Der Tagesspiegel and Die Welt. Asked why a nuclear power such as North Korea was being treated differently from Iraq, where hardly any weapons of mass destruction had been found, the deputy defence minister said: "Let's look at it simply. The most important difference between North Korea and Iraq is that economically, we just had no choice in Iraq. The country swims on a sea of oil." (...) Mr Wolfowitz's frank assessment of the importance of oil could not come at a worse time for the US and UK governments, which are both facing fierce criticism at home and abroad over allegations that they exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein in order to justify the war.

Latest message from Matthew on the key role of ETs
May 31, 2003
MATTHEW: Fear about global terrorism is subsiding; the concocted SARS scare is dwindling; no weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq; atrocities committed in that war and in Afghanistan are coming out, as is scientific evidence of ground-level explosions toppling the twin towers in New York City. In the minds of the puppets of the dark forces, something of profound nature is needed to de-emphasize these tactics that failed to sustain mass fear. Something profound is needed to divert attention from their results as well as from the tattered world economy, mass death from disease and starvation in many countries, more exposures of fraud, and the like. From what we are seeing, this could be the anticipated incursion of an alien force bent on enslaving us.
The dark minds need something of that dramatic nature to divert your focus from the actualities and reunite you all in fear of another of their misrepresented situations. This one is not a new idea. It has long been in governments top secret military contingency and strategy plans, but not intended to be set in motion unless the population started strongly resisting their control. And you are! You are embracing compassion, understanding, sharing, helping, all of which is increasing the light on Earth and making it more and more difficult for those in the camp of the darkness to keep a cover on their deception, corruption and brutality. So the time may come when they are motivated to unveil the underground extraterrestrials as a last resort to their own intent to enslave the world through fear, and Id like to get a jump on this possibility.
First, just a note about the purpose of fear in the dark agenda. Energy with fear attachments is anathema to the energy of light. Reception to light is essential for both cellular restructuring so bodies can survive in the higher light densities into which Earth is evolving as well as for people to attain spiritual clarity, also a requirement of life in the higher frequencies. Clearly, the controlling forces do NOT want light to expose their dark deeds, and inciting fear is one of their most effective means of preventing that. But it isnt working well any longer, and they are becoming desperate to strengthen their ebbing control through greater fear-filled measures. The ultimate is sending the underground population of aliens up to the surface.
When this alien civilization commonly called little grays arrived over 50 years ago, they didnt expect to be trapped in Earths atmosphere, but they were, and ever since then they have been largely unseen residents. They came to offer their advanced technology in exchange for permission to conduct experiments with the Earth humans with whom they had soul contracts for enhancing their species. They were betrayed. An attempt to annihilate them after receiving their technology failed some UFOs are your governments creations using that technology and stories of abductions were distorted or fabricated even as they officially were called hoaxes. The stories of gentleness in cooperation were suppressed. Although these people differ from you in appearance, they are a human civilization and, like you, some have lower light frequency than others. A few of those lower beings abused the soul contracts, which specified Earth individuals conscious memory of their agreement, and dreadful fear and suffering were caused to the few who did not remember.
But as a group, these people have no more desire or intention to take over and enslave all of you than do the many millions of bona fide extraterrestrials who are assisting you in this unprecedented time on your planet indeed, in the universe. Your world leaders know the truth about the presence and purpose of all of these civilizations, and they know none pose an iota of danger to you! Totally to the contrary, the danger posed is to their continuance of dark control on the planet.
There are approximately 17 major groups of extraterrestrial forces actively working on your behalf. Many are in spacecraft surrounding Earth, but members from some of these civilizations are right there among you. In their homelands they may not have the same shape and features familiar to you, but their manifesting capabilities permit them to easily adapt to the appearance of the population in which they are living.
They are able to achieve this as well as attain increasingly influential positions because of their extraordinary intelligence. Their brains are not as constrained by the still-prevailing third density limitations as are the vast majority of Earth human brains. Some of these individuals are born to Earth parents, others simply appear. Their highly developed psychic abilities alert them to danger from those commanded to eliminate them once they are seen as dangerous to the aims of world leaders. They are able to manifest protective shields, disappear by de-materializing, see beyond your vision and hear beyond your hearing. When it is safe to do so, they will reveal themselves for who they really are, and when love and peace reign completely, they may choose to continue to help if invited or return to their homelands.
The far greater numbers of extraterrestrials are using their advanced technology literally to hold Earth together during these years of mammoth cleansing. At this time the largest contingent of life preservers in human civilizations near Earth is from Arcturus, and the next in number is from Lyra. Both were the original homelands of some of your planets earliest settlers, your ancestors. Forces from the Pleiades is not the largest in members, but it has the most potent technology for clearing the lower atmosphere, and others of Earths earliest settlers came from this origin.
In my Wesak message I mentioned specific invaluable contributions of these and other civilizations, and Id like to repeat that for the benefit of you who arent familiar with it or as reminders to you who are:
Their various forms of technology have kept Earth in regular orbiting and have prevented the tides from moving as rapidly as the other effects of the accelerated energy, which you sense as time passing faster and faster. These light beings also have dispersed the kinetic energy build-up far more uniformly than would result from release through earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that otherwise could sever entire states and submerge coastlines, and they have reduced the power and size of tornadoes and other fierce storms.
Their knowledge is being filtered to your scientists, who subconsciously will be inspired toward discovering and developing energy sources to replace the current siphoning of Earths gas and oil, which are her very blood. The advanced capabilities of these higher light beings will aid in restoring those natural resources as well as cleaning up the polluted air, water and soil, which are other parts of Earths body.
They are reducing the most drastic effects of what are known as chemtrails, and of radioactivity from weaponry or leaking storage containers and in particular, the effects of depleting uranium. Depleted is a government-devised term meant to convey a completed process, as if less harm can result. Despite sciences longevity estimate of the effects of this ongoing decay of lethal toxins, eventually they will pose no harm at all to physical bodies.
Your space brothers are helping your own efforts to preserve the lives of the cetaceans. Species-wide, the cetaceans are the most spiritually and intellectually evolved beings on Earth, and their bulky forms are anchoring the light energy being beamed to the planet. The dark forces are aware of this crucial service, and it is their influence that has been behind the killing of whales and dolphins. By Gods own mandate and the work of the high light beings combined with yours, that deliberate destruction will not continue!
Another example of help you are receiving is the heightening of conscience. That layer of the soul that guides the consciousness in line with the souls chosen missions is being reinforced by the intensifying light the high beings are adding to your own and beaming to all.
Some of these space brothers are in your midst. Along with shining Earth souls, they are gaining influence in governments, international corporations, law and justice systems and the banking and medical fields the major establishments that for so long have prevented the populace from getting past their controls. You will see the top ranks of these institutions either turning into honorable leaders or being forced out by others who will take the reins and provide fair, caring and meaningful services to all the people. These leaders will see that Earths abundant resources no longer are exploited, but are shared equitably.
Along with this great spectrum of virtually unrecognized extraterrestrial assistance, there are some misunderstandings and some grave concerns about what might happen. First, there will be NO nuclear detonations! By Creators decree and a unique withdrawal of free will, those who would use their free will to cause nuclear explosions will be thwarted in their attempts. Acting upon this decree is Gods responsibility and by His instructions, your space brothers have prevented and will continue to prevent detonation of nuclear warheads in space weaponry.
Some of those preservation and restoration measures are being managed by human civilizations and some by vast and powerful collective souls you could call suprahuman or a force field. A very special service being rendered by some of those highest light forces is the amassing and directing of light toward the groups working in dimensions nearer the planet. These beings could be considered the arms providers to the arms bearers, with the arms being love in its tangible use as directed light to your Earth and each of you.
Please know that NONE of these civilizations is imposing its powers on your planet, but rather by Gods request, are aiding Earths free will choice to continue living. Rapidly reaching the state of non-viability, she had the choice to physically die, in which case only her soul would evolve, or live and ascend the limitations of the third density into which she had fallen through her human populations abuse, neglect and ignorance. However, in her desperately damaged state, she no longer had the capacity to sustain life, and she is recovering only because many millions of lighted souls are assisting in this process.
Nevertheless, it would be wrong to believe that all extraterrestrials interfacing with Earth are benevolent. By far the most powerful are those in the highest light frequencies, but there are alien civilizations that have been wreaking havoc on the planet for eons, primarily the darkly inclined reptilians. But it wouldnt matter what civilization the dark forces used to spread their agenda of violence, greed, control and suffering. The influence of the reptilians whose nature is dark is waning by the second, and the reptilians who are light beings are aiding in this victory for the light.
It is time for your world to stop wondering if Earth is the only populated place in the universe and know that she is not. It is time for your world to know that all civilizations are connected at soul level. Each soul is a part of God, thus the universal brotherhood whether high spiritual beings or dark, whether primitive or greatly advanced intellectually and technologically, whether beautiful or ugly by your standards is One.
The Silent Genocide from America
Mohammed Daud Miraki, MA, MA, PhD
Director Afghan DU & Recovery Fund
When Bush jr. said, "we will smoke them out!" he lived up to his promise, making life an unattainable reality for the unborn and unsustainable reality for the living sentencing the Afghan people and their future generations to a predetermined death sentence.
"After the Americans destroyed our village and killed many of us, we also lost our houses and have nothing to eat. However, we would have endured these miseries and even accepted them, if the Americans had not sentenced us all to death. When I saw my deformed grandson, I realized that my hopes of the future have vanished for good, different from the hopelessness of the Russian barbarism, even though at that time I lost my older son Shafiqullah. This time, however, I know we are part of the invisible genocide brought on us by America, a silence death from which I know we will not escape." (Jooma Khan of Laghman province, March 2003)
These words were uttered by an aggrieved Afghan grandfather, who saw his own and that of others' familial extinction at the hands of the United States of America and her allies. Another Afghan, who also saw his demise, said:
"I realized this slow, yet certain death, when I saw blood in my urine and developed severe pain in my kidneys along with breathing problems I never had before. Many of my family members started to complain from confusion and the pregnant women miscarried their babies while others gave birth to disabled infants" (Akbar Khan from Paktika province, February 2003)
The perpetuation of the perpetual death in Afghanistan continues with the passage of each day. Every day, people see the silent death striking their families and friends, hopeless and terrified at the sight of the next funeral in their minds' eyes. This indiscriminate murder of the Afghan people continues while those, whose tax money paid for the monstrous weapons and brought about this genocide pretend as though all is well. The horrific pictures of those dying--whose bodies do not correlate to their age since they have internalized so much uranium dust that it impacted the morphology of their bodies--remain in the memories of those still living who are fearfully waiting for their turn of disaster. The pregnant women are afraid from giving birth to babies--horrified to see a deformity instead of a healthy child. This is the legacy of the US "liberation", an indiscriminate murder of the weak and the unarmed that do not have any means of self-defense. In fact, there is no defensive measure against such Weapons of Mass Destruction because these deadly particles of uranium oxide--the dust formed after uranium pulverizes upon impacting a target--remain in soil, water and cover the surface of vegetation for generations to come.
When a US bomb or that of her allies landed on an Afghan village or town, the land and its people have become part of the deadly legacy of silent death. This death sentence is different from any other type because in this type death sentence all the people, their land and future generations are condemned to an inescapable genocide. The tragedy that makes this state of affairs so dreadful is the unavoidably invisible threat that targets everyone indiscriminately. Moreover, the threat has become endemic to the fiber of existence, contaminated the land, water and its inhabitants. In fact, when Bush jr. said, "we will smoke them out·" he lived up to his promise, making life an unattainable reality for the unborn and unsustainable reality for the living, hence, sentencing Afghan people and their future generations to a predetermined death sentence.
The true extent of this disaster is unfolding as time goes by. In light of the continuous revelations about the quantity and types of weapons used in Afghanistan, the worse has not fully materialized. Everyday, US AC 130 gunships, A-10s and B 52s bomb Afghan villages and towns at each turn when a unit of US troops encounter resistance. Consequently, not only, the perpetual death continues but rather, every round of depleted uranium is one additional nail in the collective coffin of the Afghan people.
The usage of great number of munitions and armaments dropped by US jets resulted in upsurge of various health problems weeks into 2002. This pattern is different from that experienced by the Iraqi after the first Gulf War where it took years for many of the birth defects, deformities and other health conditions to surface. This points to the enormity of uranium weapons used in Afghanistan, a fact, illustrated by many investigators world wide, notably Dai Williams in England, and Dr. Durakovic from the Uranium Medical Research Center in Canada, and Dr. Marc Herald in the United States among others. Furthermore, various international newspapers and media outlets notably Le Monde Diplomatique, Guardian, Frontier Post, BBC, CBC, Al Jazeera among others have reported the types of weapon systems used against Afghan targets--villages, towns--and mountain cave complexes. According to the BBC (April 10, 2002), more than 6600 J-dam bombs were dropped on Afghanistan. On October 2002, Boston Globe also reported:
"In contrast with older weapons, the new generation finds its way with advances such as target-elevation data and satellite signals. The JDAM already has proven itself in Afghanistan. By February , commanders had dropped 6,600 JDAMs, consultants estimate - so many that stockpiles ran low and officials had to scramble up more production from a Missouri factory."
By October 2002, the first anniversary of US invasion of Afghanistan, more than 10000 tons of bombs landed on Afghan soil. (Socialist Worker Online, October 11, 2002) Imagine the magnitude of carnage and contamination caused by such barbarism. While another report by Kate Randall on December 2001, put the number of US bombed dropped at 12000:
"Since the US launched the war on Afghanistan October 7, more than 12,000 US bombs have been dropped on the country. According to the Pentagon, about 60 percent of these bombs have been precision-guided by satellite or laser technology. However, many of these bombsdropped by B-52s and other aircraft from tens of thousands of feet in the airhave strayed off course, hitting civilian targets." (WSWS, December 29, 2001)
In another report, a year after September 11, 2001, Matt Kelley of the Associated Press put the US munitions statistics as follows:
"U.S. and coalition airplanes have conducted more than 21,000 flights over Afghanistan, dropping more than 20,000 munitions. About 60 percent of the ordnance dropped on Afghanistan has been precision guided, the highest percentage in any conflict."
Similarly the Guardian reported on April 10, 2002:
"More than 22,000 weapons - ranging from cruise missiles to heavy fuel-air bombs - have been dropped on the country over the past six months·. US pilots dropped more than 6,600 joint direct attack munitions (J-dams), the satellite-guided bombs· One in four bombs and missiles dropped by the US on Afghanistan may have missed its target"
The new generations of hard target weapons whose warheads are made of dense metal have contributed to the heavy contamination of land, water and general population.
The following munitions have been deployed in bombing the poorest country of the world, Afghanistan:

Perpetual Death From America
By Mohammed Daud Miraki, MA, MA, PhD
"If they had killed us once, it would not be so bad. But what the Americans have brought upon us is not only depriving us but our future generations of our basic god given human right, the right to live. They will be killing us for generations to come" (An Afghan Victim of US-UK bombing) In Afghanistan, elders used to cite an ancient saying "we are made for death and death is made for us" to point to the inescapable reality of facing death sooner or later. However, when this natural phenomenon changes form from its natural course to one tailored by humans, it becomes a tool of life deprivation. This tailored and forced deprivation of life on millions of people took a form of its own when used for cleansing generations of people of their basic human right, their right to live. Specifically, for millions in Afghanistan, their natural course of life and death took a sharp turn when US-UK military used uranium based weapons. This violation of immense proportion transformed the natural process of birth, growth and death into the inescapable horrors of perpetual death. Perpetual death is characterized by continuous murder of people of a community, state or nation. It takes several forms. It could be exercised by conventional means of imposing war and destruction on people. The Russians have institutionalized this horror in Afghanistan by its invasion of the country in 1979 and sustained perpetual death there by planting millions of mines scattered all over country. The United States government also shares this responsibility after it abandoned the Afghans, leaving them to death and despair and refused to help them by clearing the millions of mines left behind after the Sovietsí retreat. These mines have been maiming and killing Afghans daily since the early 1980s. However, the form that is exercised currently is the indiscriminate use of the Weapons of Mass Destruction, namely the usage of uranium based weapons. This mode of the perpetual death lives up to its name because it continues to foster deaths of thousands silently and indiscriminately. In fact, the usage of the Weapons of Mass Destruction alters the texture of the ecosystem wherein the victims reside. This ultimately condemns the people living there and future generations to death, and deprives them of their fundamental human right, the right to live. The perpetrators of this horrible crime are the governments of the United States and that of the United Kingdom. The US and the UK are the only two countries used these horrible weapons indiscriminately in Iraq during the Gulf War and Balkans in the 1990s and in Afghanistan from October 7th, 2001 onward. Meanwhile, based on past experiences with victims of the US-UK bombing in Iraq and the Balkans, every informed source suspected to have similar situation in Afghanistan. Tragically, the US-UK armed forces have used three times more uranium based weapons in Afghanistan than they did in Iraq or in the Balkans. In fact, the types of Weapons of Mass Destruction used in Afghanistan are more potent than those used in Iraq.
This became evident with the recent report by the Uranium Medical Research Center (UMRC), establishing the presence of a mysterious metal in Afghan soil samples and urine samples of victims. The investigation carried out by the two teams of experts, one concentrated on the city of Jalal Abad while the other on the capital Kabul. The two teams gathered data and established the use of uranium-based weapons there. They discovered symptoms in population of illnesses associated with exposure to depleted uranium contamination similar to that in Iraq and Balkans. This added to the curiosity of the investigators and collected soil samples from impact sites to investigate them here in the US. The investigators were also surprised to find high concentration of uranium in the urine of subjects from Jala Abad. In fact, the level of uranium was 400% to 2000%, the highest level of uranium ever recorded in civilian population. Incidentally, the uranium discovered in the urine samples from subjects in Jala-Abad exhibited characteristics more potent than depleted uranium. The report said the following in regards to the impact of the uranium-based weapons: "Dr. Asaf Durakovic, a professor of nuclear medicine and radiology and a former science adviser to the US military, who set-up the independent UMRC, has been testing US, British, and Canadian troops and civilians for DU and uranium poisoning over the past few years. His findings confirm significant amounts in the subjects' urine as much as nine years after exposure."
The above quote points to the perpetual death imposed on population of any country where the USA and the UK had used uranium-based weapons. "Durakovic and his team have searched for possible alternative causes, such as geological or industrial sources, or the likelihood of Al Qaeda having uranium reserves. But the uranium found is not consistent with the "dirty bomb" scenario proposed by the US (in which stores of radioactive materials might explain the findings), nor is it connected to DU, or an enriched uranium-type dust that has been found in Iraq and Kosova."
In Iraq, it took up to five years to have any significant effects of exposure to depleted uranium, however, in Afghanistan only after one year, the UMRC research group suspects that 25% of newly born show symptoms of exposure to uranium weapons. The latter factors further strengthen the hypothesis of the UMRC that the US-UK militaries are using uranium ore in their weapons in order to increase its destructive capability. The usage of uranium ore also makes it difficult to trace these weapons to the US-UK militaries and creates a distortion as if the uranium had come from the local uranium deposits. The conclusion of the report was: "However, marked differences between natural uranium and the uranium used in the metal fragments found in Afghanistan was uncovered with the use of an electron microscope, which revealed the presence of small ceramic particles produced by the high temperatures created on impact. This method of disguising uranium would benefit governments that are under pressure from the growing anti-DU lobby."
"The only conclusion is that the allied forces are now possibly using milled uranium ore in their warheads to maximise [sic] the effectiveness and strength of their weapons, as well as to mask the uranium, hoping that it may be discounted as part of any local natural deposits."
The destructive effects of the uranium-based weapons became evident in the beginning of the bombardments in Afghanistan, when Reuters reported that people died from minor injuries. Public Health Minister Mullah Abbas said: "Our findings prove that this is true. These bombardments have radioactive rays and chemical materials that also cause cancer." (Reuters, October 29, 2001) The news report continued with quotes that further added credibility to the claims of many that the US and the UK had used uranium-based weapons in Afghanistan. Dr. Wazir a surgeon at Wazir Akbar Khan Hospital had said the following amidst the bombardments: "We have some patients with superficial injuries with symptoms of chemical weapons." (Reuters, October 29, 2001)
According to Dr. Wazir a 10 years old boy, who had superficial injuries died from respiratory problems after the bombing, while another individual, a 50 years old woman also died from minor injuries. The doctor continues by citing three of his other patients-two girls aged 12 and 15 and a boy aged 15-who had only sustained superficial injuries from the US bombings, died hours later from breathing difficulties and internal bleeding. Dr. Wazir continued: "These are only three examples. There have been other cases where we suspect chemical weapons have been used. Most of the victims have had respiratory problems and internal bleeding for which there is no apparent cause." (Khalifa.com, October 30, 2001) At the fighting front north of Kabul, where Taliban forces were pounded night and day, many dead Taliban soldiers had no visible injuries except blood flowing out of their mouths, internal bleeding consistent with uranium based and chemical weapons. Furthermore, many dead Taliban soldiers had severe discoloration of the skin, orange, without being burned, while others had their rifles melted in their hands. This aroused suspicion among Taliban and others that weapons used by the US-UK military were not conventional weapons. Many Taliban soldiers that survived the bombing in the north have died after returning to their native villages in the south and southeast of the country. They had no physical injury upon their death, however, died from internal bleeding and other bizarre symptoms including uncontrolled vomiting, diarrhea, and blood loss in urine and stool. Their families were shocked with disbelieves.
Another bizarre, yet tragic scene was reported near Rish-Khor military base in Kabul. Multiple witnesses reported seeing dead birds on tree branches with blood coming out of their mouths. As one witness put it: "We were amazed to see all these birds sitting quietly on [tree] branches; but when we shook the tree the birds fell down and we saw blood coming out of their mouths. Then we climbed the trees to see those that were still stuck on tree branches, all of them had bled from their mouths. Two of the birds appeared to be partly melted into the trees branches."
These various claims by witnesses of the US-UK bombing amply establishes that Weapon of Mass Destruction have been used. Amidst the nonstop bombing, Taliban Public Health Minister Mullah Mohammad Abbas had expressed concerns about the utility of depleted uranium by the US in Afghanistan. The Minister was anxious about the long-term contamination of large areas in Afghanistan. He was aware of the US indifference to the well being of people in other regions and said: "They used uranium in Kosovo and our concern is that they will do the same thing in Afghanistan."
According to Dai Williams, independent DU researcher, there has been 50 to 100 times greater health hazard in Afghanistan than had been in Balkans from the usage of uranium based weaponsódepleted uranium, dirty uranium and uranium ore. As pointed out above, the efforts of UMRC to expose the so-called mystery metal used in the bombing in Afghanistan strengthened by the efforts of other researchers aimed to explore the ongoing ëAfghan War Syndromeí similar to the ëGulf War Syndromeí, which has caused horrific congenital deformities in Iraq. According to the Washington based Center for Defense Information, several hundred tones of weaponsósmart bombs and cruise missilesóenriched with the so-called mystery metal aimed for hard targets such as caves, bunkers and command and control installations were used in Afghanistan. The problem becomes more severe when one compares, the hard target weapons used in Afghanistan to the ones used in Balkans. Dai Williams compares the weapons, namely hard target weapon in Afghanistan to that in Balkans as follows: "The mystery metal is 50-75% of the weight of the bombs - up to 1.5 tons in the GBU-37 Bunker Buster bombs. If this is DU then target zones will be 50-100x more contaminated than by the pencil-sized 30 mm (0.27 kg) anti-tank shells used in the Balkans War, and more like the DU ammunition fire in the Gulf War. DU oxide is known to travel up to 25 miles by wind so large areas may be affected by each bomb."
What this translates into is more deaths, morphological changes in people, congenital deformities and various types of cancers. In this tragedy, an intertwined horrifically fatal relationship emerges between the individual and his/her environment. Since Afghans, as other people worldwide, live in their respective localities, where they have lived from childhood on, are forced to make painful choices. On the one hand, they do not want to leave their villages and cities because those are their homes. On the other, hand, they can not remain there out of concerns for the safety of their families from uranium poisons as well as further bombings. Tragically, they have no choice and no place to go. Even if they could, for the overwhelming majority it is too late because uranium dust has already determined their fate, diseases and inevitable death.
In their attempts to "smoke-out" the Taliban and Al Qaida, the US has bombed these ancient tunnels and caves that villagers throughout Afghanistan have been using for water supply. This not only worsened the existing situation characterized by drought and lack of water, but it also permanently destroyed the ecological centers in east, southeast and southwestern Afghanistan, and created a perpetual source of disease and death for populations living in those areas. According to Fred Pearceís article ëdying of Thirstí in the New Scientist, November 17, 2001, the US military bombed the kajaki dam, which waters land in southwestern Afghanistan that supports over 1 million people. In the same article, Fred Pearce articulates the following: "Afghanistan, which is in the third year of an unprecedented drought, relies on a mixture of ancient and modern water-supply systems. As well as relying on the Kajaki dam, the south of the country is peppered with hundreds of water-supply tunnels, often running for tens of kilometres [sic] into hillsides to tap water reserves deep underground. The tunnels, known in Pashto as karez, are now a [sic] target for American warplanes. Military strategists claim that bin Laden and Taliban troops may now be hiding out in the karez, many of which are wide enough to accommodate companies of men. They say the karez made impenetrable hideouts for the mujahedin during their guerrilla war with Soviet occupiers in the 1980s." Therefore, the traditional systems of water, Karez system of tunnels, whereupon thousands in Afghan countryside rely, have been permanently tailored to serve as sources of perpetual death for locals living there.
The following photos are reminders of the US-UK murderous legacy of perpetual death experienced in Iraq but now in Afghanistan
What would you do, if your entire family except a young sister had perished in the US liberation attempted in Afghanistan? These beleaguered souls are probably dead due to depleted uranium dust. If they are alive, they will most likely die from dreadful diseases. This is one example among thousands in the tragedy of perpetual deaths imposed on the poor and gallant people of Afghanistan I wish to conclude with the following quote from one of the victims of US-UK bombing in Afghanistan: "Tell the Americans, they kill us to sustain your way of life, when they enjoy living, they better think about the 15 members of my family. Tell them that they are guilty. Only if they had conscience, they would know that they are as guilty as their government."

Subject: Alternative resistance - Palestinian children triumph of beauty/light over darkness
I am sure you will be inspired by this small yet wonderful triumph of the children of the Aida camp over the policies of restriction, brutality and oppression of the israeli occupation. These children, under the wisdom and inspired guidance Abed, have renounced violence as a means of resistance and choose instead to resist a force that attempts to crush their spirit by affirming Life, beauty, creativity, dignity and freeedom in the face of overwhelming military force. This little band of children, many of their faces etched with pain beyond their years, one of them with a bullet lodged in his body which doctors are afraid to retreive, carried the memories of their people, their culture and their message of freedom out and here to Cairo, defying the confines of the camp (amazingly considering the restrictions imposed upon movement) and inspired us with hours of drama, dance, song, tears and laughter with an irrepressible spirit of childlike energy and passion. Please read on .. (Amy is a dear friend and one of the Egyptian/Canadian organisers).

When I first went to palestine and took the step of calling Abed, director of the Rowwad theatre and cultural centre for children in Aida camp near Bethlehem, I had little idea of where this initial contact would lead. From the desolate Bethlehem checkpoint, I made my way to Rowwad centre, two tiny adjoining rooms where nearly 20 children repeated their play for me from start to finish while the tears streamed.
It's been a long, frustrating, beautiful, joyous, obstacle strewn journey from that day in January 2003 to May 22 when the children, all 23 of them, arrived exhausted and uncertain at Cairo international airport. Even then and probably as I write, I cannot comprehend the magnitude or meaning of this journey in which the Rowwad children crossed three borders and spent three days travelling to cover a distance most of us can do in an hour's flight. That journey, in its literal sense, pales by comparison to the wider journey many of us here and there have been making across real and forebidding boundaries as part of this initiative, this alternative resistance.
In their hostel on day one, unsuspecting young journalists found themselves suddently surrounded by Palestinians they had neither expected nor understood. Listening to their amazement was like a bolt of lightning. Even I hadn't quite understood how unlikely it is that a group of Palestinian children from a refugee camp should come to be in Cairo or indeed anywhere outside their camp. The restriction of movement contrasts so sharply with the movement of resistance.
On both performance evenings, the spontaneity of the standing ovation, of the rare type which doesn't hesitate before rising, doesn't slyly consider the neighbour or those behind before jumping to its feet, was not only a tribute to the message and the power of the performance; it seemed to honour, in its own unacknowledged way, the very presence of these young people from another reality among us.
At poolsides, on the streets, in the poor quarters of Cairo, at restaurants and on buses, the chorus was always the same: are these children really from Palestine? are the stories we hear and see really true? how is this happening?
It happened because one person had a vision, an inspiration to do the impossible and break the chains that silence. It happened because others around him were propelled to action, one step at a time, each step drawing each of us in closer and closer to a centre we hadn't imagined. It happened because even those who admitted their utter skepticism about our proposal were nevertheless surprised by their own inner will to contribute. It happened because each person who was touched by the idea added one more block, overcame one more obstacle (and they were innumerable, the obstacles to movement), offered one more possibility until the door which seemed so impossibly shut was sufficiently enlarged by the sheer belief of so many that we walked towards the Rowwad children as they walked towards us.
The children spent 10 days in Egypt. If I'd been convinced of the strength of their performance in their small centre, I was astounded by its expansion on the stages of Cairo on which they'd had virtually no practice time. Even my son, who understands not one word of Arabic let alone Palestinian, was moved to tears by the power of the emotion. And so, even across the language barrier, the children of Al Rowwad reached out and brought us a voice which we seldom, so seldom ever hear and which together, we celebrated.
Abed offers the children the chance to resist with beauty. Through their journey here, they offered us a chance to resist with beauty and movement.

Larry King wrote in one of his books that Bush (senior) was the only person he ever interviewed who replied that he couldn't remember when asked where he was at the time of the JFK assassination.
Is the former Head of the CIA the father of lies? Duh!

Was George Bush involved in JFK assassination?
The Men Who Killed JFK:
Nelson Rockefeller Allen Dulles Lyndon Johnson of Texas George Bush J. Edgar Hoover
Rodney Stich's book "Defrauding America" tells of a "deep-cover CIA officer"assigned to a counter-intelligence unit, code-named Pegasus. This unit "had tape-recordings of plans to assassinate Kennedy" from a tap on the phone of J. Edgar Hoover. The people on the tapes were "[Nelson] Rockefeller, Allen Dulles, [Lyndon] Johnson of Texas, George Bush and J. Edgar Hoover."
Could George Bush be involved in the JFK assassination?
In 1963, Bush was living in Houston, busily carrying out his duties as President of the Zapata Offshore oil company. He denied the existence of a note sent by the FBI's J. Edgar Hoover to "Mr. George Bush of the CIA." When news of the note surfaced, the CIA first said they never commented on employment questions, but later relented said yes, a "George Bush" was mentioned in the note, but that it was "another" George Bush, not the man who took office in the White House in 1988.
Some intrepid reporters tracked down the "other" George Bush and discovered that he was just a lowly clerk who had shuffled papers for the CIA for about six months. He never received any interagency messages from anybody at the FBI, let alone the Queen Mary.
It is also worth noting that a CIA code word for Bay of Pigs was Operation Zapata, and that two of the support vessels were named Barbara and Houston.
Many say that George Bush was high up on the CIA ladder at the time, running proprietorial vehicles and placed in a position of command, responsible for many of the Cubans recruited into "service" at the time. All through the Iran-Contra affair, Felix Rodriguez, the man who captured and had Che Guevara killed for the CIA, always seemed to call Bush's office first.
From The Realist (Summer, 1991):
"Bush was working with the now-famous CIA agent, Felix Rodriguez, recruiting right-wing Cuban exiles for the invasion of Cuba. It was Bush's CIA job to organize the Cuban community in Miami for the invasion.... A newly discovered FBI document reveals that George Bush was directly involved in the 1963 murder of President John Kennedy. The document places marksmen by the CIA. Bush at that time lived in Texas. Hopping from Houston to Miami weekly, Bush spent 1960 and '61 recruiting Cubans in Miami for the invasion....
"George Bush claims he never worked for the CIA until he was appointed Director by former Warren Commission director and then president Jerry Ford in 1976. Logic suggests that is highly unlikely. Of course, Bush has a company duty to deny being in the CIA. The CIA is a secret organization. No one ever admits to being a member. The truth is that Bush has been a top CIA official since before the 1961 invasion of Cuba, working with Felix Rodriguez. Bush may deny his actual role in the CIA in 1959, but there are records in the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba that expose Bush's role..."
On the Watergate tapes, June 23, 1972, referred to in the media as the 'smoking gun' conversation, Nixon and his Chief of Staff, H.R. Haldeman, were discussing how to stop the FBI investigation into the CIA Watergate burglary. They were worried that the investigation would expose their connection to 'the Bay of Pigs thing.' Haldeman, in his book "The Ends of Power", reveals that Nixon always used code words when talking about the 1963 murder of JFK. Haldeman said Nixon would always refer to the assassination as 'The Bay of Pigs'.
On that transcript we find Nixon discussing the role of George Bush's partner, Robert Mosbacher, as one of the Texas fundraisers for Nixon. On the tapes Nixon keeps referring to the 'Cubans' and the 'Texans.' The 'Texans' were Bush, Mosbacher and Baker. This is another direct link between Bush and evidence linking Nixon and Bush to the Kennedy assassination.

End the Seattle Police Vendetta Against Demonstrators -- Chief Kerlikowske must resign
Seattle Mayor Greg Nickles and Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske put on a show of brutality yesterday for cops and spies attending the Law Enforcement Intelligence Unit (LEIU) conference. Ever since the 1999 anti-WTO demonstrations, the police have been on a campaign to prove they run Seattle regardless of whose rights they violate. Any group engaged in the legal exercise of their First Amendment rights is a target, from antiwar demonstrators to African Americans protesting police abuse.
In last night's siege, police from several cities used pepper spray, concussion grenades, rubber bullets and agents provocateur to break up a peaceful demonstration. A dozen protesters were arrested, many suffered cuts, welts, contusions and stinging eyes and four were taken to the hospital. Guerry Hoddersen, Seattle Radical Women, said, "Downtown Seattle was like the Oakland, California wharf in April where police shot at unionists and antiwar protesters who rallied to oppose military shipments to Iraq."
Over 700 champions of civil liberties attended a rally and march organized by the No Big Brother coalition to protest the annual LEIU gathering. The LEIU is a private, clandestine organization designed for sharing information, training, and techniques among 250 U.S. and Canadian police agencies. Founded by the International Association of Chiefs of Police and funded by tax dollars and law enforcement associations, it is a secret police force that is accountable to no one. It maintains databases on myriad activist groups, in a way forbidden to public agencies. Luma Nichol, Organizer of the Freedom Socialist Party, observed, "It's not supposed to be a crime or against the law to disagree with your government, which is what most of us do to end up in the LEIU files.
The 700 participants had a permit to go around the block housing the Red Lion Hotel where the LEIU was meeting. But half way through the route, they were stopped by the police. People milled in the street for a half hour and many left, thinking the march was over. That's when the agents provocateur started fistfights in the crowd and the police charged a handful of demonstrators throwing garbage.
Once again, Seattle police nametags were covered up and other officers put tape over their agency names. Washington State Patrol claimed that they did not have to abide by Seattle's rules on wearing nametags. The police did not give the crowd orders to disperse before attacking people as they headed back to Westlake Center--where protesters intended to disband. Demonstrators were pepper sprayed and shot with pellets on their backs as they were fleeing the concussion grenade attack. At least one undercover officer was filmed throwing punches on Northwest Cable News TV before leaping to the safety of the police line when teargas was sprayed. And some police were seen with assault weapons.
The police had tried to disrupt plans for the LEIU protest at the last minute - despite organizers having obtained required permits - by insisting that march organizers must buy insurance because the protest was an "event," like a festival or street fair. They backed off this requirement the morning of the march under threat of a lawsuit.
Yesterday's military-type assault on protesters shows that the Seattle mayor and police chief still adhere to a "wrong and strong" policy. Rather than negotiating with protest organizers, they try to intimidate, harass, confuse and provoke demonstrators. During the invasion of Iraq, for instance, they ticketed passing drivers who honked in support of protests at the federal building, a violation of freedom of political speech. They corralled demonstrators who were walking on sidewalks and detained them for hours. They charged into lines of marchers and divided them up into little segments so that demonstrations were broken up, leaving protesters vulnerable to individual assault by the police.
City Council hearings on this situation do little to improve it. People blow off a little steam and the cops go back to acting like this is Baghdad and demonstrators are criminals and looters.
Said Nichol, "Chief Kerlikowske has to go and the mayor and city council must be held responsible for these attacks on First Amendment rights. We are not living in a police state yet, but we will be unless people stand up for their rights now and hold elected officials responsible for the acts of their police forces."

Screwing The Poorest Children
Urge Congress to Undo This Immoral Act
Last Minute Deal Eliminates Tax Credits for Poor Kids
So Millionaires Can Have Bigger Tax Cuts
So here is the scene: A handful of Republican leaders from the House and Senate were holed up in a conference one weekend trying to hammer out the final details of the tax cut, but they've got a problem. They'd like to give more money to millionaires, but were bound by a pledge to cap the tax cuts at $350 billion.
Then suddenly, "Eureka! We can just amend it so that the poorest families don't get the new $400-per-child tax credit available to richer families. That will leave billions for deeper cuts in dividend and capital gains taxes." So, after a last-minute wording change, the bill was quickly passed by both houses and signed by the President last week. What a disgrace. In the end, people earning over $1 million will bring home an average of $93,000 extra this year while a single mother of 2 struggling to make ends meet on $18,000/year will get no help.
These huge tax cuts are a bad idea, but what really galls me is thinking about that moment when somebody in Congress offered up this latest idea to take from the poor to give to the rich, and a majority said "sure." These are not the American values I was raised with.
A lot of us are making a stink, and this one could get turned around. Click on the link below to send your faxes urging your Senator and Representative to amend the Bush tax cut to include the children of low-income families.
Then please forward this to anyone else you think believes in basic fairness.

Early Monday morning the Republican led Congress passed FCC reform as promised. What this legislation has done is allow the few elite corporations to own all of the media in America so they can further spew their Bush-oriented mis-information to an already ill-informed voter constituency. Just as the Facist regimes did prior to WW II. Each day we are losing our democratic Rights and many feel that we have long passed the point of no return. Complaining about this or that will do you no good as that is part of the scheme.
