54 Ways War Profiteers Victimize Soldiers And Civilians - Poem by O Anna Niemus

The children of the poor
lured into the military by
promise of college and bonuses...
lured by the pawns of war profiteers
wanting fresh victims for their
sacrificial altars
*************************************

THE ILLEGAL RACIST, OIL, AND NEOCON WAR AGAINST THE PEOPLE
OF IRAQ

War Profiteers' Victims: Soldiers & Civilians

121 soldiers have been involved in murders since returning
from Iraq. The US regime trains these men as killing machines
and pretends surprise that random as well as machine
killing occurs.
NY Times Jan 13,08


(If you are one of the 14% of Americans who support
the illegal and violent actions in Iraq and Afghanistan please
read on) . Every Iraqi, Afghan and
American soldier is equal in the
eyes of God.

deaths in the US military since 1980

-

No War in History has
had such a high ratio of casualties
to deaths.. as of August,2007, over 3681
deaths, over 40,000 casualties

Bring Them Home Today! ! ! ! ! !

suicides, homelessness, over 40,000
wounded, blinded, paraplegic and
otherwise mutilated men and women..
land mines, depleted uranium, sniping, food poisoning.. toxic vaccines..

The Humvee is the most frequent tomb for American soldiers in Iraq.

GOD BLESS ALL BEINGS

****

I HEALTH HAZARDS

1 DEPLETED URANIUM 81 times the world's average, http: //www.mfso.org Dutch soldiers refuse to remove the depleted uranium,
which can cause immediate damage to the prostate before its longterm effects. This is extended to children of soldiers with birth defects are caused by depleted uranium, napalm and other toxins.

2 LETHAL VACCINES of Chiron, Aventis Pasteur, Lilly, Roche and Glaxo Smith Kline over 100 million doses at 20 to 40 a shot.. or several billion for war profiteers

Kolavic-Gray, Shellie A., et al. 'Large Epidemic of Adenovirus Type 4 Infection Among Military Trainees: Epidemiological, Clinical, and Laboratory Studies.' Clinical Infectious Diseases (October 1,2002) : 808-811.

The latest victim is a servicewoman from Norton Ohio.

3 FOOD POISONING from packaged meals and from Halliburton
contracted cafeterias

4.137 DEGREE HEAT, (multiplied by as much as 55 lbs of
carried gear) has caused fatal heart attacks to dozens. http: //www.democracynow.org Such heat can turn
soap bars into liquid, turns metal packaged ingredients more toxic.. and its opposite:

5 FROSTBITE US soldiers in Afghanistan are getting frostbite.39 soldiers
died of frostbite in 1 night in Korea. The generals' feet
have been warm..

6 INSUFFICIENT MEDICAL PERSONNEL AND SUPPLIES NPR reported insufficient medical supplies and medical
personnel for the several thousand injured.

7 GUTTED VETERANS' ADMINISTRATION an underfunded understaffed undersupplied VA hospital system
gutted by the illegal administration.
(There are Republican senators
who have voted 11 times to
cut veterans' benefits)

8 AGENT ORANGE American soldiers are still dying, untold thousands, from
Agent Orange, napalm in Vietnam, in Colombia

9 GULF WAR SYNDROME American soldiers are still dying, untold thousands, from Golf War Syndrome. Those who have not died in some cases have passed birth defects to their children


10 HUMAN GUINEA PIGS While corpses have been blown apart by the Army for land mine shoewear tests (rather than sign the landmine ban)
7000 American soldiers have been used as human guinea pigs.
Captain Joyce Riley, USAF, one of the many truth telling
whistleblowers in the US military

11 CANCELLED MEDICAL BENEFITS for WW2 vets, as international cartels' hireling judges rule that the WW2 recruiting officers had no legal right to offer these contracts. In the same week, billions were sent to Ariel Sharon who is using some of the money to
separate Palestinians from their olive orchards, grapevines, places of work, food supplies etc.

12. HYGIENE VERY DIFFICULT Robert Wise,21, of Tallahassee, wrote home he had not
been able to take a shower in 20 days..just before
being killed in Iraq.

13 SANDFLIES Whether facial and other lesions are caused by sandflies as generals say or by depleted uranium, they are called Baghdad boils. The many lethal ingredients in chemtrails affect soldiers as well,

14. INSECTICIDES Insecticide disseminators at military bases have reactions from toxicity induced mental illness and metal poisoning to bone cancers.

15. CHEMTRAILS.. the chemtrails ingredients which poison the skies are in highest concentrations where they are stored and handled,

16. GUANTANAMO.. the torture of prisoners by the CIA
in Afghanistan and by the USA military in Guantanamo..
has returned to Blackwater Security personnel..
as the Wolfowitz cartel has reduced the standards of
international treatment of prisoners. Torture is a double
edged sword which returns to soldiers of the torture
hierarchy.

17 FOOD SHORTAGES
Food shortages were caused
by both inefficiency and Halliburton
and other profiteering.
'US marines down to two hot meals a day' was the headline of one story.

18 LACK OF COUNSELING
Buzz Williams, Marine and author: When a soldier most needs a listening ear and counseling, he is least likely to receive it.

19 VETERANS ADMINISTRATION GUTTED
In the few VA hospitals which remain, soldiers of the poor are made unconscious guinea pigs of pharmaceutical
drugs.. the VA is made the arm of the pharmaceutical industry. The Washington Post in February of 2007 did
a series on shocking conditions at Walter Reed Hospital
to which horribly mutilated soldiers are brought.

20 WEAPON BOOMERANGS
Dangerous new bullets used by USA military..
can boomerang on the soldiers..

21 MERCENARIES BAD FOR MORALE
Senator Biden said in April that a system which pays
private security as much as $1500 a day is bad for the morale
of those paid much less (peanuts) .

22 HUMVEE VULNERABILITY Humvee vulnerability
TV news reported that 400 million will be spent on
new Humvee's.. war profiteers rejoice
as they continue to churn out a shoddy product, that even
though newly armored, is vulnerable in tires, low windows
and crowd caused rollovers

23 CARCINOGENIC PERCHLORATE in rocket fuel, explosiion materials
and on many military bases in
the water systems etc. is besides
a cancer causer a harmer of
thyroid function

24 DISRESPECT FOR SPIRITUAL DIETS the lactose intolerant sometimes forced into dairy
The Danish dairy firm Maersk has 2 billion a year in contracts
Halliburton and other war profiteers are not providing enough
health options in the way of vegan alternatives, fresh fruit,
vegetarian protein.

25 HIGHEST CASUALTY TO DEATH RATIO EVER the highest casualty to death
rate in history over 3681 American
soldier deaths over 40,000 casualties
(over 2 million deaths for Iraqis
since Churchill bombed 9000 in 1920,
since sanctions, Desert Storm,
and now the worst of all..the 'Coalition')

26
War is not the only cause of deaths in the US military.

Compulsory vaccinations, new viruses, Lariam, food poisoning,
helicopter accidents, training deaths, live ammo deaths in training, ,
friendly fire.. drowning in mud at Camp LeJeune and elsewhere
are some of the causes of military fatalities

nonlethal: broken ear drums from flight training
... frostbite

27. AMMONIA Ammonia contamination by
the Army Corps of Engineers

28 CHILD DEFORMITIES
Children of soldiers born deformed
because of depleted uranium


29 DRINKING WATER SUPPLIED AT HIGH PRICES BY
HALLIBURTON'S KBR IS CONTAMINATED
Troops sickened by Halliburton KBR water


GOD bring the tankfodder poor home now..

II VIOLENCE FROM A VIOLENCE GENERATING SYSTEM

1 RAPES Congress in February 2004 hearings on American servicewomen,100 of whom have reported being raped

2 SUICIDES. Blinded, paraplegic, horribly burned and other soldiers kill themselves at higher rates than the general population. (from conscience, from stress, from drug reactions, etc.)


3 PTSS Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.. plagues untold millions.. some in a recognizable way.. some in a hidden way.

4 ANIMAL CRUELTY In Florida, California and elsewhere US soldiers have been ordered by military to destroy or to take to the pound their pets.

5 ALCOHOLISM AND DRUG USE Alcoholism is greatest among Marines but a growing problem in all
services as the slaves of war profiteers feel trapped and
seek escape. The Pentagon released a study in March 2004 indicating 1 in 5 in the military have a serious drinking problem.

6 ASSOCIATION VIOLENCE Any involvement in a violent system has negative associative effects for those involved.

7a. EXPLOITATION While USA soldiers are dying for perhaps l/2 of minimum wage, assassins from Blackwater Security
(http: //www.blackwatersecurity.com) are profiteering from
the outsourcing of war at the rate of $1000 to $2000 a day.

7b VIOLENCE TO CIVILIANS
MAN OUT OF MARINE CORPS A YEAR KILLS FOUR AND WOUNDS 2 IN COLUMBUS OHIO CLUB

Columbus police identified the gunman as 25-year-old Nathan Gale of Marysville, Ohio, a former lance corporal in the Marine Corps.

8 Roche's Lariam has caused at least 4 Marines to kill
their wives.

9 Officers returning home after ordering around privates
like pawns... throw their weight around with relatives
friends and coworkers.

III MILITARY INEFFICIENCY

1 FRIENDLY FIRE DEATHS http: //indymedia.org


2 LACK OF PROTECTIVE GEAR such as vests


3 LAND MINES which US cartels want kept legal (US Govt
and Israel,2 of world's only non signers of the treaty)

4 HUMVEE OVER ROADSIDE BOMBS has happened so frequently..

5 TRAINING DEATHS

6 MACHINES MADE BY WAR PROFITEERS dangerous designs in Osprey helicopters
and vulnerabilities in Chinook and Black Hawk helicopters
(LK: 'If you want helicopters to work better, stop
naming them Black Hawk, Apache and other Native
American names.) ..
Sikorsky one of companies

7 BOMBS by some of the 13,000 cluster bombs dropped,2000 of which are by
Blair's troops.

8 OFFICERS who care more about career than the safety of their soldiers

9 SOLDIERS ARE PROGRAMMED
to believe that what they are doing is for the freedom
of their own country
The idealism of soldiers in every illegal and immoral war
has been manipulated as they have been programmed to
think they are protecting their country.

10 WHAT IS A PRIVATIZED MILITARY? MERCENARIES
More and more military operations are being given to
private war profiteer companies, interested in money, not
the welfare of the soldiers. CACI, Titan, Blackwater
Security


IV, V, VI, VII

IV IRAQIS

1 IRAQIS.. MORE THAN TWO MILLION
HAVE DIED SINCE CHURCHILL FIRST
BOMBED FREEDOM FIGHTERS IN 1920..
AND SINCE THE UK THROUGHOUT
THE 20TH CENTURY HAD SEVERAL
INVASIONS...
OVER HALF A MILLION FROM SANCTIONS
.. OVER 250,000 IN THE HIGHWAY
OF DEATH ALONE IN 'DESERT STORM'
.. NEARLY A MILLION IN THE 'COALITION' WAR

Iraqis are fighting the occupiers of their own country.* Each day the situation becomes more dangerous as volunteers pour into Iraq from Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria
1. IRAQIS ARE THE CHIEF VICTIMS

a. DEATHS AND INJURIES
b. NO ELECTRICITY
c. NO WATER
d. FOOD SHORTAGES
e.500,000 REFUGEES IN OTHER
COUNTRIES
f. THEIR OIL STOLEN BY SLANT
DRILLING IN KUWAIT, BY INTERNATIONAL OIL COMPANIES
g. THEIR ART STOLEN AND BOMBED
h. THEIR ELECTED LEADERS HANGED
BY INVADERS
i. THEIR FREE MEDICAL CARE WIPED
OUT BY PAUL BREMER OF KISSINGER
ASSOCIATES
j. THEIR NICKEL A GALLON GAS
IS IN THE HANDS OF PETROPLUTOCRAT
PRICEGOUGERS
k. THEIR CHILDREN CAN'T GO TO
SCHOOL


2 THE MUSLIM WORLD
With torture, with assassinations of family members of Saddam Hussein and the hanging of the elected leader
of Iraq, with many other forms of violence, the USA military has violated international law and USA law. In violating the rights of others they put American soldiers
as well at risk, just as the arms race begun by USA and Likud war profiteers has caused weapons response in other countries.

3. Iraqi oil has been slant drilled
by the Kuwaitis with the help
of George H W Bush. The Olmert
regime is guarding a Haifa pipeline
now, an action which shows contempt
for the Iraqi people.

4. The racist US media does not
report Iraqi cumulative casualties
more than infrequently.




V BUSH REGIME LIES AND HYPOCRISY

From Xoa:
Quote:
41% of American soldiers in Iraq are national guardsmen.. people who enlisted after being told their commitment would be 'one weekend a month, two weeks a year'.

These weekend warriors are spending two years fighting an illegal war, away from their wives and children. No wonder so many are committing suicide.
More and more generals, admirals
and officers in general are criticizing
the disastrous war in Iraq.

See Loose Change, the video 100 million have seen about the real
cause of Sept 11 bombing of World Trade Center
http: //video.google.com/videoplay? do...q=loose+change


900 BILLION in Pentagon contracts,40% of them unbid,
analyzed, with the 100 biggest war profiteers listed.
The few are making billions while the children of the poor
are getting screwed. Through Dov Zackheim and Donald
Rumsfeld,2.3 TRILLION disappeared from the P
