Deformed Iraqi babies and warmonger Rupert Murdoch

This video from the American Friends Service Committee is called Refugee Stories: Child of the Sanction. Fallujah.

From British daily The Morning Star:

Sky’s the limit on hypocrisy

Friday 04 September 2009

This week saw horrific but hardly surprising images emerge from Fallujah, where children continue to be born with grotesque and frequently fatal deformities.

Sky News ran a piece on the subject but somehow failed to draw any definite conclusions about the hideous mutation of babies in part of Iraq targeted with massive ordnance by allied forces and the happy-go-lucky use of depleted uranium and white phosphorus to carpet-bomb the place out of existence during their most recent jingoistic enterprise.

This would be the same [Rupert Murdoch owned] Sky News that was a tireless cheer-leader for the military campaign and got noticeably aroused by the technology on display but is now remodelling itself as the saviour of the children of Iraq. Talk about Damascene conversions.

There hasn’t been a transformation like that since David Shayler donned a blonde wig and demanded to be called Delores.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out why generations of Iraqi children have been effectively handed a death sentence at birth. It did, however, take one to load a warhead with enough fissile material to light up Las Vegas.

The Sky report stated that there was speculation chemical weapons may be behind the deformities.

No shit Sherlock!

These are babies with two heads and their internal organs on the outside. It’s going to take more than an illicit Woodbine to cause that kind of harm.

Then, in a particularly sickening piece of revisionism, Sky stated: “Yet even since we first started to give voice to the calls for help from the people of Fallujah (last year) things have got worse.”

We, mind you!

I seem to remember John Pilger reporting on the issue as far back as 2004 when he interviewed one of the poor sods whose job is was to clean up the mess – a man who now has 5,000 times the maximum tolerable level of radiation in his body.
