Oh Dude!' - Video Shows American Slaughter of Civilians in FallujahTim King Salem-News.com
These are American tax dollars; American soldiers fighting in your name.
(SALEM, Ore.) - At Salem-News.com we constantly report the dark side of war, with countries like Israel, Sri Lanka, Bahrain and so many others slaughtering people for unjustifiable reasons.
This video shows U.S. forces dropping a 500 pound bomb On Iraqi Civilians in the street ~ shows Iraqis killed in a tremendous explosion, followed by an aviator's voice saying, 'Oh dude'.
Exposing this is why Bradley Manning is rotting behind bars; he exposed the reality of what was going on in Iraq and it is not a good reality. The country never lifted a finger toward the U.S. The leaders of this nation absolutely lost their way.
I was in Fallujah only briefly while covering the war in Iraq, so I am as much of an outside observer of this as anyone else, but I have had contact with doctors in this Iraqi city on several occasions who update Salem-News.com on the terrible number of birth defects that have taken place since the U.S. war on Iraq was launched.
It absolutely has a feeling that matches the immense death that has taken place there. Mostly U.S. Marines, but the Army too, took on the resistance in this city with the latest, worst, most devastating weapons. The American supremacist ideologies that drove the unjustified war to start in the first place, left Fallujah soaking in depleted uranium (DU) and a host of other post-war presents that promise to kill and maim for years to come.
These are American tax dollars; American soldiers fighting in your name. This is what they did and what they never wanted you to know. Bradley Manning is the conscience of America, along with Julian Assange; and there's not a damned thing any of us can do about it. This is U.S. funded Genocide. It is up to Americans to get with the program of Truth, Justice and Peace before it is too late.
But as the song 'Try Not to Cry' by Samy Yousef says:
I throw stones at my tongue
Sometimes music can be a metaphor for life. In some events it offers all we need to see what we are and have become.
Maybe it makes Americans proud, I'm sure not one of them. This incident in Fallujah reportedly happened the same year that the famous Wikileaks footage of Iraqi journalists being slaughtered in the streets was recorded. Those men made the fatal mistake of trusting the Americans not to do exactly what they did.
Of course in that event the Americans waited for a mini van to start picking up wounded, with two small children clearly visible in the passenger window... BOOM! The U.S. Army was an army of one. I feel far more akin to those dead journalists than the monsters in the helicopter; they are murderers and war crime criminals, even though nothing will ever come of their actions.
And let's not forget that American Army medics refused to treat the severely injured children- refusing access to their ambulance. Funny, there were no injured Americans.
These words from 'Try Not to Cry' seem especially appropriate:
Hmm, a little boy shot in the head
