Where the Terrorists Come From
19 Sep 2006
Let's be careful about calling people
terrorists, but the people who are
strapping on bombs and walking into
a situation where they can murder
several dozen civilians can, I believe,
be considered terrorists and not
military personnel.
But the question is: "Who are these people, and why do they do such a
horrible deed." Are they so involved in the Islamic faith that they are
mindlessly killing for Alla? Have they been brainwashed by al qaeda
as to not think rationally?

No! This is not the case with the hundreds, now thousands of people
who have been willing to die for their cause in a disgraceful exhibition of
murderous rampage.

Most people are not aware of the casualties of the four wars since 1991
in which uranium weapons, so-called "depleted" uranium, have been used.
They will not understand that there are now many thousands of civilians who
are experiencing extreme mental devastation.

That mental devastation is the result of cancers, multiple cancers, hideous
birth defects in their children, and a plethora of other medical problems (1)
including a world-wide epidemic of diabetes (2), all due to the illegal use of
uranium weapons by the US, UK, and Israeli Military.

These unfortunate people are in an extremely hopeless situation. Can you
even begin to understand the depths of depression that they feel? Can you
even begin to understand the hate that they must have for the ones that brought
this plague, this everlasting death sentence to their families and their country?

Uranium has a half-life of 4.5 BILLION YEARS. At that time it will have turned
50% into lead.

That essentially means that the areas where these illegal weapons were
deployed are un-inhabitable FOREVER! Their towns are contaminated
FOREVER! How the hell would you feel if this was happening to you and your

Would you possibly desire to strike back? You bet you would! And that is
what the Military is creating in all of these wars where these horrible weapons
are used.

I know that this is a bitter pill to swallow. It is actually a very well kept secret,
or cover-up, however you wish to look at it.

The US Government denies that uranium weapons causes the "Gulf War
Syndrome" just as they denied the "Agent Orange" casualties and illnesses
of the Viet Nam War.

"The Los Alamos Nuclear Weapons Lab Memo of 1991 ordered all personnel
to lie about depleted uranium weapons to maintain the 'political viability' of uranium
weapons," a quote from Bob Nichols of the San Francisco Bay View Newspaper.

He has been reporting on these illegal weapons for years, and is currently
finishing a book on the past 15 years of "illegal nuclear wars" conducted
by the US Military.

When asked how these people could promote using these weapons knowing
that it's contaminating the entire globe, Mr. Nichols replied: "They are psychopaths.
They just don't care about anything except themselves."

Here are some quotes by Leuren Moret, a world-renowned scientist, activist and whistle-
blower who has dedicated over ten years of her life to making the public aware
of these very horrible weapons:

"The birth defects after the Gulf War l [were] maybe one a week. Now it's two
or three a day because the chronic daily 24-hour exposure of the people living
in Basrah, who are down-winders from the battlefields, has continued since the
Gulf War l. And they just have higher and higher levels of depleted uranium in
their bodies. It has destroyed the germ cells — the ova and the sperm."

"That was the battlefields. This time, the United States has gone in and bombed
their cities...bombed their cities to rubble, contaminated their water supplies."

"And the genetic future of the Iraqi people for the most part, is destroyed. For
every genetic defect that we can see now, in future generations there are
thousands more that will be expressed... But the environment now is completely

"Now, our soldiers are going to come back. They're going to be much sicker,
much faster. And the illnesses will be more severe." (3)

"Who are the real terrorists? I would say that it is
the US, the UK and Israel, who have released the
depleted uranium poison gas equivalent of more than
400,000 Nagasaki bombs into the global atmosphere
since 1991. Each tiny particle of depleted uranium
floating around the earth is not only a DNA landmine,
but once it enters a cell, it can cause a cascade of
diseases called Gulf War Syndrome." Leuren Moret

You did a heck-of-a-job, Billie and Bushie 1 and 2. Your nuclear wars will keep
America safe FOREVER! Thanks a lot.
