Caution: The images presented here are so horrific that it had me in tears just dealing with the ‘technics’ of uploading them. As with the Gaza victims file, I have left them off the Home Page. If you wish to view them click on the Continue Reading link. And I urge folks to do something about this, how can we stand aside? It is after all, being done in OUR name. The Ed
Dear readers and viewers:
These photos of newly-born infants have been taken by Dr. Mohammad Daud Miraki, a well-known Afghan researcher, anthropologist, sociologist and scholar. He visited Afghanistan to find out about the situation after the American invasion of Afghanistan. The deformed infants are the result of the uranium munitions used by American troops and bomber aircrafts all over Afghanistan under the pretext of fighting terrorism. However, the majority of deformed babies cases have been found in Pashtu-speaking areas which are bearing the brunt of the American attacks. American troops use weapons like white phosphorus bombs and depleted uranium which are banned on world level.
For the past eight years when American and Allied invading troops invaded our dear country Afghanistan, more than one hundred thousands Afghans have lost their lives during American aerial bombardment and ground attacks. No night passes without the American special operations force, joined by the CIA and Blackwater operatives launch raids on civilian houses and kill innocent people including children, women and old men.
American intelligence agents equipped with sophisticated arms violate human rights in Afghanistan and kill civilians with impunity.
We call on all anthropologists to come forward and expose the brutalities of the American invading troops committed under the name of war on terror. It is the responsibility of all writers, statesmen, and freedom-loving personalities to save the dignity and humane values from being effaced from the world at the hand of the evil empire of America.
VICTIMS OF URANIUM MUNITIONS USED BY THE US FORCES IN AFGHANISTAN
I took this photo on the last day of my journey: one the triplets
Afghanistan has become the disaster words could not describe, hence, I decided to illustrate this disaster via these photos of babies born deformed.
On many occasions, I pointed out that we need funds to build a research institute and the linked monitoring stations. Unfortunately, majority of you simply brushed off my request. I wonder if these photos could make you think.
Again, it is up to you, to do whatever you think is humane; however, it should not be too difficult. The funds for the research institute are very small price you have to pay after all your tax dollars–though you are not in control of– have nonetheless created this disaster. If everyone visiting this web site pays the amount they spend on soft drinks in a month, we would have the funds to build our research facility:
OUR CHILDREN WOULD BE BORN THIS WAY FOR EVER THANKS TO THE URANIUM MUNITIONS USED BY YOUR ARMED FORCES PAID FOR BY YOUR TAX DOLLARS [AND POUNDS/EUROS].
Due to the use of massive amount of uranium munitions used by the US forces in the initial bombing and subsequently, massive amount of congenital deformities occur all over Afghanistan. The rate of various cancers has gone up significantly. Leukemia and esophageal cancers are very high among children. According to doctors at maternity and children hospitals in Kabul, the rate of various congenital deformities have increased by many folds since the US invasion. In fact, the magnitude of man made isotopes was established by the Uranium Medical Research Center after their investigators made to trips to Afghanistan and collected urine and soil samples. They established that the rate of man made isotopes was gone up 2000 times in some subjects located near the bombed areas.
Since uranium used in the weapons have a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the US forces ensured that generations of Afghans suffer from cancers and deformities. This is certainly not development. In fact, it is the biggest crime ever committed by anyone in the history of humanity.
