This war touches us all.


  • US illegally removes pages from Iraq UN report - Throughout the winter of 2002, the Bush administration publicly accused Iraqi weapons declarations of being incomplete.Yet it was the United States itself that had removed over 8,000 pages of the 11,800 page original report.

  • Rumsfeld's plan to provoke terrorists - Secret missions designed to stimulate reactions among terrorist groups, provoking them into committing violent acts which would then expose them to "counterattack" by US forces.

  • US & British forces continue use of depleted uranium weapons - Despite massive evidence of negative health effects, British and American coalition forces are using depleted uranium (DU) shells in the war against Iraq and deliberately flouting a UN resolution which classifies the munitions as illegal weapons of mass destruction.

  • US dollar vs. the Euro: Another reason for the invasion of Iraq - In November 2000, Iraq became the first OPEC nation to begin selling its oil for Euros. Since then, the value of the Euro has increased 17%, and the dollar has begun to decline. One important reason for the invasion and installation of a US dominated government in Iraq was to force the country back to the dollar.

  • US intentionally destroyed Iraq's water system - During the Gulf War the United States deliberately bombed Iraq's water system. After the war, the US pushed sanctions to prevent importation of necessary supplies for water purification. These actions resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians many of whom were young children.

  • Bush administration hampered FBI investigation into Bin Laden family before 9/11 - Under the influence of US oil companies, George W. Bush and his administration initially halted investigations into terrorism, while bargaining with the Taliban to deliver Osama bin Laden in exchange for economic aid and political recognition.

  • US rejected peace offerings from Iraq and Afghanistan - The charter of the United Nations specifies that “the parties to any dispute… shall, first of all, seek a solution by negotiation”. As we are beginning to see, President Bush and Tony Blair have somehow become exempt from international law.

  • Treaty busting by the United States - The United States is a signatory to nine multilateral treaties that it has either blatantly violated or gradually subverted. The Bush Administration is now outright rejecting a number of those treaties, and in doing so places global security in jeopardy as other nations feel entitled to do the same.

  • Homeland security threatens civil liberty - The Patriot Act of 2001 allows the US government increased and unprecedented access to the lives of American citizens and represents an unrestrained imposition on civil liberties. The Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003, also known as Patriot Act II, poses even greater hazards to civil liberties.

  • Washington buys friends by giving out weapons to rogue nations - Since the September 11th attacks, the United States has stepped up both gifts and sales of advanced weapons as a way to entice reluctant nations to support US military actions.

  • US implicated in Taliban massacre - A documentary entitled Massacre at Mazar released in 2002 by Scottish film producer, Jamie Doran, implicates U.S. troops in the torturing and deaths of approximately 3,000 men from Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan.

  • The US government’s tests of warfare agents on servicemen and civilians - In 1952, the US Army created a 19,000-acre, top-secret reserve in Fort Greely, Alaska for the explicit purpose of testing deadly chemical and biological weapons, and blasted hundreds of rockets and bombs containing sarin and VX nerve agents into the region’s richly wildlife-populated forests between 1962 and 1967.

  • US military bombing range destroys Korean village life - Every weekday for the past 50 years, from eight am to eleven pm, US fighter planes in Korea have dropped 400 to 700 bombs on the Koon-ni range, less than one mile from local villages, dropping depleted uranium (DU) shells.

  • US military's war on Earth - The world's largest polluter, the US military, generates 750,000 tons of toxic waste material annually, more than the five largest chemical companies in the U.S. combined. Part of the "Homeland security" campaign has been the varied and persistent appeals by the Pentagon to Congress for exemptions from a range of environmental regulations and wildlife treaties.
