The Electoral

Circus! 


Regular Hilo Peace Vigil participant and political pontificator, Danny H.C. Li said “The so-called Debate on Foreign Policy (between Democrat/Republican Presidential contenders) never took place… Instead, it was closer to a congenial love-fest that celebrated the role of U.S. Imperial ‘regime change’ Militarism. Barack “O-bomber” and “Romnesia” Mitt took turns in narrating a fairy tale of how ‘American leadership’ has brought democracy across the Middle East. But neither Pentagon mouthpieces dared mention the million of innocent Iraqi civilians that were killed by an illegal American Invasion and thousands of Afghan women & children were blown to smithereens by U.S. drones since 2008…On just about every single crucial foreign policy, there is complete bi-partisan support for the Wall Street-Pentagon ruling elite’s aggressive “Full Spectrum Dominance” program over the Planet. Blind support for Israel? Check! Massive military aid for repressive sheikdoms like Bahrain and Saudi Arabia? Check! Unsubstantiated wild claims of Iranian development of nukes? Check! Increased funding to America’s already bloated Dept. of Offense? Check! Increased use of drones and JSOC assassination teams on 3 continents? Check! A “Pivot to the Pacific” with thinly-veiled military alliances to choke off China’s sea lanes? Check!…”

     Refreshing alternative views were the comments of Presidential Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein and Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson on Monday reported by Raw Story. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/10/23/jill-stein-criticizes-u-s-slave-like-mentality-toward-israel/  Dr. Stein blasted both major-party candidates for having a “slave-like” mentality toward Israel.  For his part, Anderson seized on a remark commonly attributed to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about wiping Israel “off the map.” “He never said it,” Anderson said. “He referred to the regime in Israel one day being ‘on the dustbin of history.’ It is a misinterpretation, and it is so warmongering of both of these candidates to talk about how they will basically blow Iran away…” Watch Anderson and Stein’s remarks, posted by Democracy Now on You Tube Tuesday

Iraq Records Huge Rise in Birth

Defects

The U.S. has used tons of Depleted Uranium (DU) in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, etc. Depleted Uranium has a half life of 4.5 billion years. Its use is possibly the worst war crime ever committed, causing terrible birth defects and cancers and other health problems for a very long time, including with U.S. veterans.

[...] The new findings, published in the Environmental Contamination and Toxicology bulletin, will bolster claims that US and Nato munitions used in the conflict led to a widespread health crisis in Iraq. They are the latest in a series of studies that have suggested a link between bombardment and a rise in birth defects. Their preliminary findings, in 2010, prompted a World Health Organisation inquiry into the prevalence of birth defects in the area. The WHO’s report, out next month, is widely expected to show an increase in birth defects after the conflict. It has looked at nine “high-risk” areas in Iraq, including Fallujah and Basra. Where high prevalence is found, the WHO is expected to call for additional studies to pinpoint precise causes.

The latest study found that in Fallujah, more than half of all babies surveyed were born with a birth defect between 2007 and 2010… Prior to the turn of the millennium, fewer than 2 per cent of babies were born with a defect. More than 45 per cent of all pregnancies surveyed ended in miscarriage in the two years after 2004…

In Basrah in the south of Iraq, researchers found more than 20 babies out of 1,000 were born with defects in Al Basrah Maternity Hospital in 2003, a number that is 17 times higher than recorded a decade previously. In the past seven years, the number of malformed babies born increased by more than 60 per cent; 37 out of every 1,000 are now born with defects.

DU Used in Hawaii!

DU has also been used here in Hawaii in military training at Pohakuloa, Schofield Barracks,and possibly other sites on various islands. Recently, several Big island residents – patients of 3 Medical Doctors and a Naturopathic doctor – have tested high for uranium in urine, including levels exceeding three times the upper expected limit. The Hawaii Department of Health, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission need to conduct further investigation on this matter. Let your voice be heard! Email Gary.Gill@doh.hawaii.gov and tamara.powell@nrc.gov and your local elected officials and candidates running for office.

Protect the People & the Land!   Test for DU!
