ZZ 48 Of The Ways The World's Militaries War On Animals
Nearly every military in the world harms animals. All wars are wars on animals birds and fishes as well as forests.
Trillions of Animals Died in World War I and II Countless trillions of animals died in World War II of atom bomb testing, of bombing, starvation, abandonment. Animals were bulldozed by tanks, shot
by machine guns. Zoos were intentionally bombed.
Family dairy cows were rounded up, butchered, and eaten. Animals
were victims of torture in military labs.20 million horses died in World
War I. They were the devoured, the blinded, the maimed,
the dis-armed, the trampled, the lamed
They died freezing, blown apart, drowned, unfamed,
these helpless victims, silent and unnamed

It is likely that military in other countries harm animals. Do citizens
of the US have a duty first to end cruelty at home? .
BOMBS WHICH BURN
1 People animals birds are killed burned blown apart by bombs, rockets, missiles.
2 People animals birds are blown apart by mines of war profiteers
both when forced into service as dolphin or dog minesniffers
or as unsuspecting victims of mines... A rhino whose legs
were turned to jelly by a landmine in Africa was one
of billions of animal, bird and other victims of landmines.
Children think the land mines are toys and blow off their hands
picking them up.
USE OF ANIMALS AS WEAPONS CARRIERS
3 The US regime under Reagan pretrained mules as Afghan ammunitions carriers. The mules were blown up not only by accidents on the trails but by combatants.
4 The US Navy has electroshocked porpoises and turned them into weapons carriers. (See Day of the Dolphin by former navy researcher Lilly)
BOMBING OF OIL REFINERIES
5 Whales, dolphins, fishes, turtles, sea birds are killed in oil spills from bombing power plants.15,000 tons of oil
have been dumped into the Mediterranean by the Israeli
bombing of a Lebanese power plant.
ZOOS BULLDOZED AND BOMBED
6 Animals are bulldozed (killed or backs broken) in zoos in wartorn areas.*

bombing the Berlin Zoo. The Israeli Defense Force
bulldozed the Gaza Zoo, breaking the backs of those
who survived deaths by crushing.
ENTOMBED BY BOMBS
7. Bears and other animals are sealed into Afghan caves by bombs
WHALES DOLPHINS KILLED BY SONAR OF NAVY SHIPS
8 Naval warships' sonar kills whales.

REFUGEE AND SOLDIER ABANDONMENT
11a Animals are abandoned in the US by refugees and by soldiers
11b Dogs taken overseas by the USAF, those which survived
the bombs, the landmines, the bullets, were often left behind...
in Vietnam, Iraq etc.
Propaganda by the US Air Force on the use of dogs
and other animals in the Iraq and many other wars.

INSTITUTIONAL SHUT DOORS
12 Animals are not allowed in to all refugee camps. The US Red Cross
after a worldwide outcry re its gunbacked separation of people
from animals has begun to change its rules on this.
ANIMAL HABITAT DESTROYED
13 Animal habitat (trees, orchards, vines, plants, watersheds) are destroyed by daisy cutter, bunker
buster and other bombs, cruise missiles etc. Tanks crush
sapling trees and add to the desertification of the planet.
They create erosion ruts and cause mudslindes in areas
14 Depleted uranium is giving animals as well as people
cancer,81 times the average in Baghdad.
BOMBING OF REFUGEES
15 Animals as well as people have died as supply convoys
were foiled by bombed roads and bridges, and as
convoys have been fired upon. In the Highway of Death
bombing directed by G H W Bush,250,000 white flagged
surrendering soldiers as well as refugees with donkeys,
cats, dogs, goats, cows, chickens etc. were carpet
bombed and bulldozed into graves.
UNABLE TO ESCAPE PENS, CAGES, ROPES
16. Some abandoned animals are left tied up without war
and are dying of thirst and or heat or cold
17. Motorists racing to get out of bombing areas are
mowing down goats, cats, dogs, chickens, sheep on the roads.
PROPELLER AND TANK DEATHS OF BIRDS, MARINE MAMMALS, FISHES
18. Naval warships carve up marine mammals in their
propellers as jetfighters carve up birds in their propellers.
Tanks have crushed untold trillions of small mammals,
ground nesting birds, frogs, snakes, ants in anthills,
and countless other species.
ALCOHOL RELEASED ABUSE
19. American soldiers drinking have shot
tigers and lions in the Baghdad Zoo.
20. Donkeys and dogs have been shot at Israeli govt checkpoints
21a. Currently Samuel Aronson of Brookhaven is irradiating squirrel monkeys in NASA's latest military research. http: //www.pcrm.org/resch/anexp/nasa.html
NA SA's military missions have involved secreting
animals aboard. This is unpublicized. Many secreted animals
were with the astronauts blown apart by Lockheed and
http: //www.indybay.org/newsitems/2009/10/31/18627296.p hp[/URL
NASA against public will announces it intends to irradiate captive primates in its war to militarize space
22 Animals die in military weapons research labs. Primates
have been irradiated at Barnes Air Force Base in Texas.
23 They have been put in restraining chairs for months
at a time in astronaut studies at Bethesda Naval and
24 Animals die in military contract ‘vaccine' research.
25 When PETA was successful in cancelling the US Dept
of Defense use of living dogs as target practice for the
(unnecessary) training of surgeons, the DOD simply
substituted goats, making them truly scapegoats.
26. Chemical and biological weapons from weaponized
anthrax to nerve gases have been developed on captive
animals for many decades. Recently biological weapons
developed by George Merck of the Merck pharmaceutical
company were destroyed after 45 or more years in
. In weaponized anthrax development by the CIA
and Ft Detrick,4000 primates were detroyed in just
1 experiment before captive primates and 1 billion dollars was given to Battelle
of Tennessee. The books of Leonard Horowitz document

MILITARY SURVIVAL TRAINING

SOUND BOMBS HARM DOGS' EARS
32. Israel's sound bombs have been reputed to
explode the wombs of Palestinian women. They harm
animals with sensitive hearing such as dogs and cats.
EXTERMINATION OF BIRDS AND OTHER BEINGS AT
a. The US military is secretly killing Canadian
geese on bases.
b. At Ft Campbell, Kentucky detergent was sprayed in winter
on thousands of blackbirds to destroy their feather oil.
Ann Free, Schweitzer biographer, wrote that as their lives
seeped out in heat and rose as mist, so did their souls rise
Many bases such as those in Aviano Italy employ exterminators.
The lethal insecticides they have used have destroyed
the brains of some soldiers as well.
[B]BOMBING OF PET MARKETS[/B]

Project. Wild mustangs were bombed by B29′s.
Brown cows' hair turned white from the radiation.
Trillions of individual beings were bombed in New Mexico
in the atom bomb testing. Around the world nuclear
tests have always resulted in the murder of trillions of
EAR BREAKING MACHINES
36 A San Diego company, American Technology, makes LRAD's, machines used against
the people and animals of Iraq, the people and animals
of Pittsburgh etc. The machine with 151 decibels destroys hearing
and is designed to disperse nonviolent protesters. Unlike human
beings who can generally cover their ears after the 1st piercing
ear drum buster, birds cannot.

5 ways the Navy kills animals
a. underground explosives
http: //forum.surfermag.com/forum/showflat.php? Cat=0&Number=2013710&an=0&page=0
b. carrier support for bombing of animals in illegal wars
c. laboratory research on animals at Bethesda Naval etc.
d. sonar… killing whales, dolphins and other marine mammals,
e. propellers.. killing marine mammals, fishes[/quote]
Dr Martin Seligman at the Univ of Pennsylvania shocked dogs
.. he is the 2nd APA president to work with the CIA in developing
torture techniques. He was recently given a 31 million dollar
no bid military contract.

47 The number of accidents in which flocks of birds are sucked into propellers multiplies in war and military training exercises.
48. USAMRIID DNA tests traced the origins of the socalled Spanish flu which caused 25 million or more deaths in WW1 to a Tennessee pig farm. The eating of animal flesh is the number 1 cause of premature deaths in the world every year.
In the war of the Israeli government against the Lebanese
people, a million animals died in an oil spill
created by a power plant bombing. Cows have died of thirst
on boats unable to land liveshipped animals. Animals
have died as relief supplies can't get into the many crisis
areas. The Olmert regime fired upon relief workers.
* The IDF killed many Gaza zoo animals
bulldozing the cages while the animals
were in them.. gazelles had their
backs broken. Many zoos are prisons.
