"American leaders are perhaps not so much immoral as they are amoral. It's not that they take pleasure in causing so much death and suffering. It's that they just don't care. The same that could be said about a sociopath. As long as the death and suffering advance the agenda of the empire, as long as the right people and the right corporations gain wealth and power and privilege and prestige, as long as the death and suffering aren't happening to them or people close to them, then they just don't care about it happening to other people. American leaders would not be in the positions they hold if they were bothered by such things."

author William Blum

 

"There appears to be something about launching bombs or missiles from afar onto cities and people that appeals to American military and political leaders. In part, perhaps, it has to do with not wishing to look upon the gory remains of the victims, allowing American GIs and TV viewers at home to cling to their warm fuzzy feelings about themselves and their government."

author William Blum

 

"Do American leaders really believe the utterances that emanate from their mouths? When the word "god" is regularly invoked in their talks, while American Hellfire missiles are sent screaming into a city center or a village marketplace teeming with life? When they carry on endlessly about democracy and freedom, while American soldiers are smashing down doors, dragging off the men, humiliating the women, traumatizing the children. When they proclaim the liberation of a people and the bringing forth of a better life, while vast quantities of American depleted uranium are exploding into a fine vapor which will poison the air, the soil, the blood and the genes forever?"

VIETNAM
UNITED STATES (1960s-1970s)
AIR STRIKES, NAPALM, AGENT ORANGE, LANDMINES & CLUSTER BOMBS

"In spring 1966, US carpet-bombing had systematically devastated ancient village-based rural culture in South Vietnam as napalm rained from the sky, slaughtering helpless peasants."

William F. Pepper, 2003

 

"In Vietnam we terrorized peasant villages with bombing attacks using napalm and cluster bombs. "

Howard Zinn

 

"Most people will remember the picture of the horrified little Vietnamese girl - running away from her bombed village with her napalm burnt back - a showcase of the horror of war, which seems to be forgotten or impossible to imagine for the Washingtonian 'chicken hawks' sending ill-informed soldiers to war."

Seymour Hersh, 2005

 

"The Red Cross estimates that three million Vietnamese have been affected by dioxin, including at least 150,000 children born with serious birth defects. Millions of Americans and Vietnamese are still affected, directly and indirectly, by the wartime U.S. spraying of Agent Orange and other herbicides over southern and central Vietnam."

Aspen Institute, 2015

 

"The herbicide Agent Orange was a mixture used by the military to defoliate large swaths of Vietnamese jungle as a way of exposing North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops that were using the jungle as cover to move men and material into South Vietnam.
The mixture, which was used until the early 1970s, contained a chemical contaminant known as dioxin. Even though its use ended more than 40 years ago, the dioxin contaminant continues to have a harmful effect today. As many Vietnam vets know, dioxin has been linked to cancers, birth defects, diabetes and other ailments and disabilities."

J. D. Heyes, 2015

 

"In Vietnam between 1962 and 1971, an estimated 20 million gallons of defoliants were sprayed on 8 million acres of forests and crops. More than three thousand villages were contaminated, and 60 percent of the defoliants used were Agent Orange."

Marie-Monique Robin, 2008

 

"Agent Orange is a chemical weapon and clearly qualifies as a weapon of mass destruction. It was also aimed primarily at foliage in the jungle which is clearly a civilian target. Many civilians died or were severely burned by Agent Orange and many American soldiers who had handled the defoliant experienced effects many years later. Therefore, the use of Agent Orange, authorized by President Johnson on March 9, 1965, was a war crime. It should also be noted that this weapon of mass destruction was used in South Vietnam against the people whom the United States were supporting in this war."

David Model

 

"Planes sprayed the herbicides directly over at least 3,181 Vietnam villages. At least 2.1 million inhabitants - and perhaps as many as 4.8 million - would have been in the villages during the spraying operations in South Vietnam, whose total population at the time was less than 17 million. Almost 80 disorders have been associated with exposure, including cancers of the lung and prostate and more than a dozen other malignancies."

San Francisco Chronicle, 2003

 

"More than 400,000 tons of napalm and 19 million gallons of herbicides (including 11 million gallons of Agent Orange) were used to destroy the croplands and half the forests in the country. More than 2,000,000 Vietnamese - one-ninth of the population - were killed."

Daniel Hellinger and Dennis Judd

 

"'Anti-personnel' technology was deployed with impunity; the bombs which sprayed needles into flesh and organs and were difficult to detect in X-rays created little fuss. Although millions of gallons of Agent Orange were dumped on Vietnam during the 1960s, the outcry about its genetic and environmental effects came only as the war was ending. The good old blundering 'green machine' was a murder machine."

John Pilger

 

"I saw during my tour 20 deformed infants under the age of one. I thought it was congenital or something, from venereal disease, because they had flippers and things. It was common knowledge that Agent Orange was sprayed in the area."

Vietnam Winter Soldier Investigation, 1970

 

LAOS
UNITED STATES (1960s-1970s)
AIR STRIKES, NAPALM, AGENT ORANGE, LANDMINES & CLUSTER BOMBS

"A third of the bombs dropped on Laos failed to explode on impact, thus becoming UXO (unexploded ordinance). Some of the most harmful munitions were cluster bombs, which were dropped inside casings meant to open in mid-air and spread the "bomblets" over a wide area. About 80 million cluster bombs didn't detonate; less than one percent of all UXO has been cleared.
Typical victims of UXO include farmers, scrap metal collectors, and children. Many victims of cluster bombs are children, because the small, round shape of the explosives look like toys."

Brett S. Morris, 2015

 

"Between 1964 and 1973, the US Air Force dropped 260 million cluster bombs on Laos, or the equivalent of a fully-loaded B-52 bomber's payload dropped every eight minutes for nine years."

rawstory.com/, December 3, 2008

 

"The US has failed to acknowledge or pay compensation or provide medical assistance to thousands of deformed children born and still being born due to American military use of Agent Orange. The millions of gallons of this chemical were eagerly manufactured and sold to the Pentagon by companies Dupont, Monsanto and others greedy for huge profits."

Denis Halliday, 2013

 

"The herbicide Agent Orange, a mixture used until the early 1970s, contained a chemical contaminant known as dioxin. Even though its use ended more than 40 years ago, the dioxin contaminant continues to have a harmful effect today... Dioxin has been linked to cancers, birth defects, diabetes and other ailments and disabilities."

CAMBODIA
UNITED STATES (1960s-1970s)
AIR STRIKES, NAPALM, AGENT ORANGE, LANDMINES & CLUSTER BOMBS

"From 1961 - 1971, dioxin-containing defoliant Agent Orange was used, mainly in South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Millions of gallons were sprayed with devastating consequences because dioxin is one of the most toxic known substances, a potent carcinogenic human immune system suppressant. It accumulates in adipose tissue and the liver, alters living cell genetic structures, causes congenital disorders and birth defects, and contributes to diseases like cancer and type two diabetes."

Stephen Lendman, 2010

 

"Most of the Iraq War protesters (2002-2003) knew something about the bombings of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Panama, Yugoslavia, or Afghanistan; and they knew about napalm, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, etc. Those who marched knew that the impending war was something a moral person could not support; and that it was totally illegal, a textbook case of a "war of aggression"; one didn't have to be an expert in international law to know this."

William Blum

 

"The United States dropped more than 6 million tons of bombs during the Indochina war, including tons of napalm and lethal defoliants like Agent Orange, and it is directly responsible for the deaths of many of the civilians who died in that war."

Stephen M. Walt

 

SERBIA, YUGOSLAVIA
UNITED STATES & NATO (1999)
AIR STRIKES, CLUSTER BOMBS, DEPLETED URANIUM & SANCTIONS

"Neither I nor my colleagues have ever seen such horrific wounds as those caused by cluster bombs. They are wounds that lead to disabilities to a great extent. The limbs are so crushed that the only remaining option is amputation. It's awful, awful."

Yugoslav orthopedist during the U.S. bombing of Yugoslavia, 1999

 

"NATO bombed Serbia into submission under the pretext of a humanitarian war. During the bombing, the United States, Britain, and Holland dropped 1,765 cluster bombs containing more than 295,000 cluster bomblets. Not only did the cluster bombs result in civilian casualties and destroy non-military targets, but an estimated 20,000 unexploded bombs remained after the war waiting for innocent civilians to set them off."

David Model

 

"Since the 1991 US-NATO war aggression against Yugoslavia using highly toxic and radioactive uranium projectiles, the enormity of this war crime becomes clear: In Serbia, aggressive cancer among young and old has reached epidemic proportions.
... Every day a child suffers from cancer. The entire country is contaminated. By harming the genetic material (DNA) generation after generation, malformed children will be born.
... DU has characteristics that are particularly attractive for the defense industry: The DU projectiles have a high penetrating power because of the high density of the metallic uranium and are particularly suitable for breaking steel armor and underground concrete bunkers. DU is also a flammable material that ignites spontaneously when penetrating an armor plate and at 3000 degrees Celsius burns to uranium oxide dust while releasing highly toxic and radioactive substances (uranium oxide).
This uranium oxide aerosol reaches the human body through the air, water and, in the long term, through the food chain.
... In the lungs, the DU dust particles are also attached to the red and white blood cells and thus reach all organs of the body, so that in many organs cancer is produced and the genetic material (DNA) irreversibly damaged. Through the placenta, the DU can also reach an unborn child and cause serious harm to it. Potential long-term damage includes genetic defects in infants, childhood leukemia, cancer and kidney damage. "

Dr. Rudolf Hänsel, 2017

 

"Most of the Army's cluster munitions have an official 'dud' rate of 16 percent, but the actual rate is much higher; in Kosovo, some estimates put it as high as 25 percent."

Norman Solomon, 2003

 

"In 78 days the Pentagon dropped 35,000 cluster bombs on Serbia, used thousands of rounds of radioactive depleted-uranium rounds, along with bunker busters and cruise missiles. The bombing destroyed more than 480 schools, 33 hospitals, numerous health clinics, 60 bridges, along with industrial, chemical and heating plants, and the electrical grid."

Sara Flounders, 2008

 

LEBANON
ISRAEL (& UNITED STATES) (2006)
AIR STRIKES, LANDMINES, CLUSTER BOMBS & SANCTIONS

"During the Lebanon war more than two years ago, Israel destroyed much of Lebanon's infrastructure in a month of intensive air strikes. Even in the war's last few hours, as a ceasefire was being finalized, Israel fired more than a million cluster bombs over south Lebanon, apparently in the hope that the area could be made as uninhabitable as possible."

Jonathan Cook, 2009

 

"The United Nations estimated that Israel used up to 4 million cluster bombs in Lebanon (2006)."

www.spiegel.de/, December 3, 2008

 

"During the last 72 hours of Israel's attacks on Lebanon in 2006, Israel fired over 1,800 cluster rockets containing 1.2 million submunitions. For the two months after the official cessation of hostilities, casualties were still being recorded at the rate of three or four people killed or maimed per day. Israel, both a manufacturer and user of cluster bombs, is among the states opposed to an international ban."

David Cronin, 2008

 

LIBYA
UNITED STATES & NATO (2011)
AIR STRIKES

"In addition to the bloodshed and chaos which Barack Obama has inflicted upon the hapless souls of Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, Obama's Predator drones have killed as at least 1000 innocent people in Pakistan, Yemen, and Sudan; at least half of them elderly, women and children."

MS King, 2014

 

"The overarching need for total control of information requires media complicity. This was one of the great lesson defeat in Vietnam taught our leaders. The highly indoctrinated and well-rewarded managers who run the government will never again allow the public to see the carnage they inflict upon foreign civilians. Americans never will see the mutilated Iraqi, Afghani, Libyan and Syrian children killed by marauding US forces and their cluster bombs."

Douglas Valentine, 2017

 

"What does it take to be targeted as a US foreign enemy? Any country whose leaders choose to support their own citizens' well-being, independence and quality of life over US Empire's fascist transnational corporate interests is attacked economically through sanctions and embargos, politically through propaganda lies and threats, or militarily though unnatural disasters/weather warfare, occupied invasions involving long term bloody conflict or acts of terrorism, coups and assassinations. Just ask Cuba, Venezuela, Haiti, Panama, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Congo North Korea, Donbas, Palestine or Russia just to name more than a dozen."

Joachim Hagopian, 2017

 

AFGHANISTAN
UNITED STATES (2001-present)
AIR STRIKES, NAPALM, LANDMINES & CLUSTER BOMBS

"U.S. forces adopted a "bomb them with butter" strategy in Afghanistan - until media sources revealed that the cluster bombs the U.S. dropped could be easily mistaken for food packets. Despite this blatant Pentagon attempt at "humanitarian'' propaganda, only a courageous few famine-relief and refugee-aid NGOs criticized. Most remained silent."

Lance Selfa

 

"Cluster bombs are landmines. The crucial difference from those banned under international treaty is that they are dropped from aircraft. At the time of writing, an estimated 70,000 American cluster 'bomblets' lie unexploded in Afghanistan, already the most landmined country in the world. This is the nature of the 'war against terrorism'."

John Pilger

 

"Since 9/11, the United States has used cluster bombs in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen. The US has also exported cluster bombs to numerous countries, including Israel, which used them in its assault on Lebanon in 2006, and Saudi Arabia, which used them to attack Yemen in 2015."

Brett S. Morris, 2015

 

"When the United States bombed Iraq in 1991 for invading Kuwait, it dropped 62,000 air-delivered cluster bombs and delivered 110,000 by other means, littering the country with 24 to 30 million unexploded sub munitions literally a disaster waiting to happen.
NATO bombed Serbia into submission under the pretext of a humanitarian war. During the bombing, the United States, Britain, and Holland dropped 1,765 cluster bombs containing more than 295,000 cluster bomblets. Not only did the cluster bombs result in civilian casualties and destroy non-military targets, but an estimated 20,000 unexploded bombs remained after the war waiting for innocent civilians to set them off.
After 9/11, the United States launched its War on Terrorism. The first acts were the bombing of Afghanistan to eradicate the Taliban accused of harbouring terrorists, the destruction of terrorist training camps, and the attempted capture of terrorists, including the head of Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden. The U.S. dropped 1,228 cluster bombs containing 248,056 bomblets leaving an estimated 12,400 duds with the potential to kill years after the conflict. (Human Rights Watch)
The use of cluster bombs violates the First Protocol, Chapter II, Article 51 of the Geneva Conventions. This falls under the category of protection of civilians, "indiscriminate weapons" and weapons which 'are of a nature to strike military objectives and civilian or civilian objects without distinction'."

IRAQ
UNITED STATES (2003-present)
AIR STRIKES, SANCTIONS, LANDMINES, CLUSTER BOMBS, NAPALM & DEPLETED URANIUM

"Thirteen years of the US-UK driven embargo of Iraq resulted in the deaths of an average of six thousand children a month from embargo-related causes."

Felicity Arbuthnot, 2015

 

"It is clear that the Pentagon knew about the health risks long before Operation Desert Storm (1991) emanating from uranium-containing ammunition. Numerous military reports have acknowledged that uranium-238 can cause kidney damage, lung and bone cancer, lung disease, skin diseases, neurocognitive disorders, chromosome damage and birth defects."

Dr. Helen Caldicott, 2002

 

"Beginning in April 2004, the U.S. laid siege to the Fallujah, Iraq, forcing most of the population to evacuate, then shelled and bombed it - including with white phosphorous and cluster bombs. White phosphorous can melt skin and flesh right down to the bone. U.S. soldiers called it "shake and bake." Its use is generally considered a war crime because it's an indiscriminate killer. "

Larry Everest, 2015

 

"Tens or hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians are killed by the carpet bombing of cluster bombs; they are aimed at an area, not a target. Such bombs contain as many as 900 separate "bomblets" designed to be indiscriminate In Iraq, 1 to 1.5 million were dropped."

Wall Street Journal, 2003

 

"The US government sought to prevent the WHO (World Health Organization) from surveying areas in southern Iraq where depleted uranium had been used and caused serious health and environmental dangers."

Hans von Sponeck, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations

 

"In 2010, a study of cancers, leukemia's and birth defects linked to the use of DU (depleted uranium) proved that there were massive increases in cancer, a 38-fold increase in leukemia, 10-fold increase in breast cancer and infant mortalities were staggering,"

Felicity Arbuthnot, 2015

 

"The World Health Organisation (WHO) has categorically refused in defiance of its own mandate to share evidence uncovered in Iraq that US military use of Depleted Uranium and other weapons have not only killed many civilians, but continue to result in the birth of deformed babies."

UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq Denis Halliday, 2013

 

"After the start of the Iraq war, rates of cancer, leukemia and birth defects rose dramatically in Najaf. The areas affected by American attacks saw the biggest increases. We believe it's because of the' illegal' weapons like depleted uranium that were used by the Americans. When you visit the hospital here you see that cancer is more common than the flu."

Dr. Sundus Nsaif , 2013

 

"Rates of leukemia and birth defects in Iraq rose dramatically due to use of depleted uranium by the US military since 2003 invasion.
Cancer is more common than flu in the Iraqi city of Najaf. While doctors say the government discourages them from talking openly to the press on the disease, local families are scared of having more kids with birth defects."

Russia Today, 2013

 

"Internal pre-Gulf War data showed cancer incidence in Iraq at 40 per 100,000. By 1995, it was 800. By 2005, it doubled to 1,600. Annually, numbers increase."

Stephen Lendman, 2013

 

"From October 1994 - October 1995, congenital defects per 1,000 live births in Basra's Maternity Hospital (Iraq) was 1.37.
In 2003, it was 23. It represented an "astonishing 17-fold (increase) in the same hospital." From 2003 - 2011, annual evaluations were conducted. Congenital birth defect occurrences and types were reported.
Following US bombings, contamination increased dramatically. Cancer, other diseases and birth defects followed. They're at epidemic levels. They keep rising."

Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (BECT) article "Metal Contamination and the Epidemic of Congenital Birth Defects in Iraqi Cities.", Sept 2012

 

"Fallujah's (Iraq) has the highest rate of genetic damage in any population ever studied."

cancer expert Dr. Chris Busby

 

"Sanctions are leading to thousands of deaths per month, a possible total of 1 million to 1.5 million over the last nine years. Genocide is taking place right now, every day, in Iraq's cities."

UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq Denis Halliday

 

"In order to contain the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein, George H W Bush and his successor Bill Clinton secured UN support for the most brutal regime of sanctions known to history. The U.S. imposed a no-fly zone and staged regular missile strikes against regime targets.
The combination of sanctions and air strikes prevented reconstruction of the country's infrastructure, impoverished its people, undermined basic medical care, and consequently, led to an enormous increase in the mortality rate, especially among children. "

Ashley Smith, Socialist Worker, 2018

 

GAZA, PALESTINE
ISRAEL (& UNITED STATES) (1967-present)
AIR STRIKES, NAPALM, CLUSTER BOMBS & SANCTIONS

"I don't see how the United States can provide to Israel F-16s, gunships, Apache gunships, phosphorus, and cluster bombs to kill helpless people, children who are starving to death in Gaza. Israel controls the checkpoints. They control the arrivals and departures, supplies and people."

Helen Thomas - about Israel's war on Gaza, 2009

 

"Can anyone who is following the Israeli air attacks on Gaza - the buildings blown to rubble, the children killed on their way to school, the long rows of mutilated corpses, the wailing mothers and wives, the crowds of terrified Palestinians not knowing where to flee, the hospitals so overburdened and out of supplies they cannot treat the wounded, and our studied, callous indifference to this widespread human suffering - wonder why we are hated?
Our self-righteous celebration of ourselves and our supposed virtue is as false as that of Israel. We have become monsters, militarized bullies, heartless and savage. We are a party to human slaughter, a flagrant war crime, and do nothing. "

Chris Hedges, 2008

 

"You see a person on a path in Gaza, he doesn't have to be armed, you can simply shoot him. In our case it was an old woman on whom I did not see any weapon when I looked. The order was to take down the person, this woman, the minute you see her. There are always warnings, there is always the saying, 'Maybe he's a terrorist.' What I felt was, there was a lot of thirst for blood."

an Israeli army squad commander

 

"People have been referring to the Warsaw ghetto as the nearest analog in modern times to Gaza. There is no structure of an occupation that endured for decades and involved this kind of oppressive circumstances as Gaza. The magnitude, the deliberateness, the violations of international humanitarian law, the impact on the health, lives and survival and the overall conditions warrant the characterization of a crime against humanity. This occupation is the direct intention by the Israeli military and civilian authorities. They are responsible and should be held accountable."

U.N. special rapporteur for human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory, former Princeton University law professor Richard Falk, speaking about Israel's blockade of and attacks on Gaza

 

"Today, the Palestinian people in Gaza are the new Warsaw Ghetto, and those who are murdering them are the equivalent of those who murdered the Jews in Warsaw in 1943."

George Galloway, 2009

 

"If we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill Palestinians in Gaza. All day, every day."

Arnon Soffer, The Jerusalem Post, May 2004

 

"Israel's siege has turned Gaza into the world's largest open-air concentration camp - its impoverished inhabitants are being starved and subject to indescribable suffering. 80% live below the poverty line. About 97% of factories and workshops cannot operate. Gaza's industrial zone is completely closed. Unemployment is about 50%. In 2006 Israel bombed Gaza's only power plant, making Gaza dependent on power supplies from Israel and Egypt. Fresh drinking water is often not available for days at a time. Irregular power means that sewage treatment plants cannot function and that raw sewage gets dumped into the Mediterranean. Medicines are in short supply, and Israeli bans on travel mean that Palestinians seeking advanced medical care that is not available in Gaza are left to die."

Larry Everest, 2009

 

"All civilians living in Gaza are collectively guilty. There is no moral prohibition against the indiscriminate killing of civilians in Gaza."

Sephardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu in a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Jerusalem Post

 

"Gaza is an immense concentration camp - 1.5 million people squeezed into 140 square miles hemmed in on all sides by 25-foot-high walls separated by a vast expanse of bulldozed earth. The 2005 "pull-out" left Gaza still controlled by Israel from air and sea, its entries and exits prisonlike mazes electronically controlled and under constant surveillance. Bombing it, assaulting it with tanks and Uzis, is like shooting animals in a pen.
... There have been eight military assaults on Gaza since 2004; blockades started in 2005, and then a siege of medieval proportions in 2006, punishment for Gazans' having elected the wrong party for Israel and its U.S. patron."

Ellen Cantarow, 2009

 

"Since President Barack Obama was elected, leading liberals have talked about America returning to its true status as a "nation of moral ideals".
Tell that to an Afghan child whose family has been blown away by Obama's bombs, or a Pakistani child whose family are among the 700 civilians killed by Obama's drones. Or Tell it to a child in the carnage of Gaza caused by American smart weapons which were resupplied to Israel."

John Pilger, 2009

 

"Each day Israel's war machine chews up more bodies of Gaza's children while spitting out more lies. Cheering Israeli Jews perch on their fortified hills to celebrate each missile strike on the apartments and schools in the besieged Gaza. "

"Yemen are a people under attack by an undeclared super-power coalition comprised of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, US, UK, EU, UAE and Israel. As in Iraq, while the Yemeni people are under attack from super-powers, they are simultaneously being collectively punished by the illegal sanctions imposed by a corrupt United Nations body."

Vanessa Beeley, 2016

 

"In addition to the bloodshed and chaos which Barack Obama has inflicted upon the hapless souls of Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, Obama's Predator drones have killed as at least 1000 innocent people in Pakistan, Yemen, and Sudan; at least half of them elderly, women and children."
