White Phosphorus (Willy Pete) & Depleted Uranium Shells
(“never has so much ‘wanton destruction’ (in the history of this region) been caused” UN)
“Burned bodies, burned women, burned children; white phosphorus kills indiscriminately…when it makes contact with the skin, then it’s absolutely irreversible damage, burning flesh to the bone”. Jeff Englehart, (former) US Soldier served in Falluja Iraq. BBC European News Section. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article5447590.ece
1,000 dead and countless injured, the whole population in shock and thousands of new (possibly – justifiable) terrorists made in ‘Gaza’s Factory of Terrorists’ http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7828884.stm What shall we tell the children? see below.
Have we any proper verifiable pictures of the dead, the burned women, and children, and by this stuff – Iraq War. Full verification of its use, now in Gaza – fully publicised. I was burned by a ‘thunder flash’ in the eye. I know what this felt like! Imagine – White (sodium) Phosphorus, you can’t! Look it up in Key Stage 4 Chemistry. The use of MK 77 Firebombs fully admitted to by the forces in Iraq and a great favourite of the Generals – no doubt, as it causes so much abject terror in the enemy.
BBC TV News they must report on the use of White Phosphorus – fully. Are they doing a cover up? Robert Fisk, ‘The Great War For Civilisation The Conquest Of The Middle East’ ISBN-84115-007-X points out the spineless neglect in reporting the use of chemical weapons. World War 1 1914-1918 chemical weapons used. Iran Iraq War chemical weapons used and against Marsh Arabs. Not reported on properly and only ‘spinelessly’, for 4 years, and one of the sponsors of this war was our civilised Western Judeo/Christian – society. Better to be a ‘feral – failure’, of a white working-class boy, who is free; than some ghastly ‘stuffed up’ and middle-class civilised member of the Judeo / Christian society of today!
Regrets by Miliband on the eve of the ‘third world war’, and started by the so called heroes of the Judeo/Christian society, Bush and Blair. This is why parents should, and have, now, a much greater responsibility (on all sides) to free their children from this nonsense – it is very quite likely to be too late, unfortunately, all the warnings have gone unheeded by some greedy and gullible parents, and by most of our notoriously divisive, racist, stilted, and slow to change institutions, of course, very much including the ridiculous nonsense produced by our religions and churches in the UK and within our Schools! Recession and war will always make those people popular, as that is where their particular ‘business’ is most profitable – amongst: the captive child audiences UK. With all the captive vulnerable and gullible targets.
“This war was wholly a gain for the churches everywhere, opposed as long as they could; practically every innovation that made for the increase of happiness or knowledge – here on earth”. The BBC has defended a decision not to air a TV fund-raising appeal for Gaza, saying it wanted to avoid compromising public confidence in its impartiality.There is no defence for the BBC over this matter and they ‘fall short’ again, see, above – BBC ‘spinelessness’ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7846150.stm
John Ging Director of UN Relief Agency (who has been in Rwanda and Kosovo during crisis) has seen nothing as bad as this, as now, and in Gaza, “This is in full view of the whole world and is not acceptable by any measure”. From another reporter – “People are walking around in a total state of deep shock and denial, so deep; as if nothing is happening to them”!
A LITTLE BIT OF WHITE PHOSPHORUS ON THE ‘WRONG SORT’ OF PEOPLE DOES NOT MATTER! (one wonders where the students are? As in the 1960’s, with the Vietnam War, the USA’s use of napalm in that conflict)
In much of Europe the god fearing used to burn old women suspected of being…, an arduous duty they felt had been clearly put upon them by the Bible…so on…a ‘pre-enlightenment’ fact.
“Our attitude to what is going on in the world assumes a quality of flatness and indifference, life loses all structure. It is composed of many little pieces, each separate from the other and lacking any sense as a whole. The individual is left alone with these pieces, like a child with a puzzle. The difference however, is that the child knows what a house is and therefore can recognise the parts of the house in the little pieces he is playing with, whereas the adult does not see the meaning of the whole, the pieces of which come into his hands. He is bewildered and afraid, and just goes on gazing at his meaningless little pieces.” ‘The Fear of Freedom’ Erich Fromm.
“It is unthinkable in the twentieth century (21st!) to fail to distinguish what constitutes an abominable atrocity that must be and what constitutes that past, which ought not to be stirred up! We have to condemn publicly, the very idea that some people have the right to suppress others. In keeping silent about evil, in burying so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it and it will rise up again a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby, ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations. It is for this reason and not because of the weakness of indoctrinational work that they are growing up indifferent. Young people (people in power) are acquiring the conviction that foul deeds are never punished on earth and that they always bring prosperity. It is going to be uncomfortable, horrible, to live in such a country!” An extract from, The Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn. Nobel Prize in Literature 1970. (The problem of evil is that it refuses to stay in its box marked, evil. It keeps on coming out to play Mr Nice Guy, or at least – Mr Average). Problem in our country is, “That this country is run by crazy people. Remember what they have to do to get where they are. Their perspective is so narrow…so brief. A few years. In the best of them a few decades. They only care about the time they are in power”. Carl Sagan ‘Contact’.

Britain ‘an equal place to grow up’, or Britain’s ‘should grow up’!http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7823372.stm
This week’s big questions are:
Are parents to blame for the failure of white, working-class boys?
Should religious organisations be allowed to discriminate against women?
And, is it wrong to kiss and tell?

Darwin Day Campaign – Email Your MP!
2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of ‘On the Origin of Species’. We are asking our members and supporters to email their MPs, urging them to support to Early Day Motion (EDM) 377 tabled in the House of Commons to make Charles Darwin’s birthday – 12th February – an annual public holiday.
The motion tabled by Parliamentary Humanist Group member Ashok Kumar MP, which has already received the support of ten other MPs, says, “That this House notes the extraordinary achievements of Charles Darwin; notes that 2009 marks both the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species; welcomes proposals for the creation of a Darwin Day in recognition of the ground-breaking work of the British scientist responsible for the theory of evolution by natural selection; and calls for Darwin’s birthday, 12 February, to be designated a public holiday in honour of one of the fathers of modern science and one of Britain’s greatest, if not the greatest, scientific minds”.
Election of Barack Obama –
“In general, important civilisations start with a rigid and superstitious system, gradually relaxed, and leading, at a certain stage to a period of brilliant genius, while the good of the old tradition remains and the evil inherent in its dissolution has not yet developed. But as the evil unfolds, it leads to anarchy, thence, inevitably, to a new tyranny, producing a new synthesis secured by a new system of dogma. The doctrine of liberalism is an attempt to escape from endless oscillation. The essence of liberalism is an attempt to secure a social order not based on irrational dogma, and insuring stability without involving more restraints than are necessary for the preservation of the community”.
‘Whether this attempt can succeed only the future can determine’
Bertrand Russell “The History of Western Philosophy”.
“Becoming human is a process, not some event”
“Eventually, my rejection of authority spilled into self self-indulgence and self-destructiveness, and by the time I enrolled in College, I’d begun to see how any challenge to convention harbored within it the possibility of its own excesses and its own orthodoxy”. Barack Obama ‘The Audacity of Hope’. (poss, ‘the stronger the indoctrinated dogma, orthodoxy, and dogma – the stronger the rebellion’)
