Some May be More Dangerous Than Radiation Deconstructing Nuclear Experts PDF Print E-mail

Chris_Busby  Since the Fukushima accident we have seen a stream of experts on radiation telling us not to worry, that the doses are too low, that the accident is nothing like Chernobyl and so forth. They appear on television and we read their articles in the newspapers and online. Fortunately the majority of the public don't believe them. I myself have appeared on television and radio with these people; one example was Ian Fells of the University of Newcastle who, after telling us all on BBC News that the accident was nothing like Chernobyl (wrong), and the radiation levels of no consequence (wrong), that the main problem was that there was no electricity and that the lifts didn't work. " If you have been in a situation when the lifts don't work, as I have" he burbled on, "you will know what I mean." You can see this interview on youtube and decide for yourself.

05042010jpg Though president Obama and many other Americans have moved on, not wanting to look back, many of the children of Fallujah do not have the nicety of that choice. But who am I kidding, trying to appeal to Americans through the suffering of the weak is like I don’t know what, but it certainly is doomed to failure as much as trying to appeal to people through truth, whatever that may be. This is of course why Wikileaks has accomplished nothing nor is it likely to. The most likely scenario is already taking place with an intensification of the Terror Wars and domestic spying and harassment here at home. This, of course, is what people don’t like to admit about Wikileaks yet it is true all the same.

girl_of_Iraq  When you begin by bombing hospitals, devouring innocent people with hot jellied death is not exactly a stretch. It is simply part and parcel of the inhumanity of the Bushist mindset. Indeed, the slaughter in Fallujah was a microcosm of the entire misbegotten enterprise launched by those two eminent Christian statesmen, Bush and Blair:, the video below tells the story of Operation Vigilante Resolve and is called 'Fallujah - the hidden massacre' . All video clips are translated into Arabic and Italian language.
