God Forgive America
God Forgive America

Instead of “God Bless America,” we should put “God Forgive America” bumperstickers on our cars. Americans, as participants in horrendous war crimes, should ask for forgiveness. America is a killer nation—not only do we kill Iraqis and Afghans, but we are in the process of killing ourselves.
“After forming microscopic and submicroscopic insoluble Uranium oxide particles on the battlefield, they remain suspended in air and travel around the earth as a radioactive component of atmospheric dust, contaminating the environment, indiscriminately killing, maiming and causing disease in all living things where rain, snow and moisture remove it from the atmosphere,” writes independent scientist and international expert on radiation, Leuren Moret. “Global radioactive contamination from atmospheric testing was the equivalent of 40,000 Hiroshima bombs, and still contaminates the atmosphere and lower orbital space today. The amount of low level radioactive pollution from depleted uranium released since 1991, is many times more (deposited internally in the body), than was released from atmospheric testing fallout.”
In short, we will pay for the crimes of our government—a government several magnitudes more destructive than the Nazis—and so will our children, and our children’s children, in fact the entire human race will pay for 4.5 billion years (the half life of uranium). In order to understand the incomprehensible dimension of this, consider that the earth and solar system are 4.54 billion years old. Scientists believe the Homo sapien genus is a mere 400,000 years old.
God forgive America.
Bush tells us nuclear war (and using depleted uranium is indeed nuclear war) is required in order to save us from “al-Qaeda,” a phantom created by the very government Bush represents. In order to protect us (so we may die from depleted uranium and other toxins released in our names), Bush tells us we must “stay the course” in Iraq.
As the Iraqis have learned, this “course” consists of mass murder and unspeakable crimes. In the town of Ishaqi, Iraqi civilians—including babies and grandmothers—have paid the ultimate price for Bush’s determination to fight the “al-Qaeda” poltergeist. “What goes through George Bush’s mind when he sees the dead bodies of Iraqi women and children loaded on the back of a pickup truck like garbage? Is there ever a flicker of remorse, a split-second when he fully grasps the magnitude of the horror he has created?” muses journalist Mike Whitney. Bush and his Straussian neocon handlers are not inclined to look at the grisly photos of dead babies in Ishaqi. Instead of addressing the issue, the Pentagon tells the corporate media the massacre of innocents is little more than a “pattern of misinformation” contrived by America’s enemies.
It is sincerely curious how things work. For instance, as the war crimes committed in Haditha ripple across the news cycle, we learn about the fate of the Christian Peacemakers Teams members, abducted nearly four months ago by the so-called the Swords of Righteousness Brigade.
“A gruelling four-month ordeal for two Canadian peace activists and a British colleague held hostage in Iraq ended Thursday in a bloodless military operation by multinational forces,” reports CanWest Interactive. “U.S. Army Gen. Rick Lynch said in Baghdad that the coalition forces were tipped off to where the hostages were by someone captured Wednesday night.”
It should be noted that the Swords of Righteousness Brigade is linked to the Islamic Army in Iraq and the IAI is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, itself a documented British and U.S. intelligence asset (for details, see my New Swords of Righteousness Brigades Video blog entry from earlier this month). Evidence abounds that much of the “al-Qaeda in Iraq” and Iraqi “insurgent” violence is the result on Anglo-American black ops, as the capture and subsequent release of several British SAS and American “counterinsurgency” terrorists over the past few months reveal.
In a deranged sort of way, it makes sense for counter-ops to kill abducted peacemakers, humanitarians, and journalists, as Tom Fox and Margaret Hassan were killed. It makes absolutely no sense for the Iraqi resistance to kidnap and murder these people, most working to help the Iraqi people.
God forgive monsters who slaughter the peacemakers. God forgive Americans who tune out reality in preference for televised football games and sit-coms while a pathological government kills hundreds of thousands of innocent people in their names. If you believe in God, now is the time to ask for forgiveness. Now is the time to get off the sofa and out of the gym or mall and demand that your government stop murdering not only Iraqis and Afghans, but the entire planet with depleted uranium and other war-making toxins and poisons.
It will be too late on the day you sit helplessly by and watch in horror as your child dies from cancer caused by depleted uranium blowing in the wind. “I am death, shatterer of worlds,” declared Robert Oppenheimer, head of the Manhattan Project, quoting the Bhagavad-Gita, after the explosion of the first atomic bomb.
Let’s call a spade a spade—this largely ignored horror has a name: omnicide, the murder of all life on the planet.
God forgive America.
