Chemical WMD: US massacres + hypocrisy in Iraq

"Vivid images show civilians, including women and children, who had been burned alive in their homes, even in their beds. This use of chemical weapons ­ at the order of the Bushist brass ­ and the killing of civilians are confirmed by former American soldiers interviewed on camera.

"'I heard the order to pay attention because they were going to use white phosphorous on Fallujah,' said one soldier, quoted in the Independent. 'In military jargon, it's known as Willy Pete. Phosphorous burns bodies; in fact it melts the flesh all the way down to the bone. I saw the burned bodies of women and children. Phosphorus explodes and forms a cloud. Anyone within a radius of 150 meters is done for.'"

“'The US spends US$600 billion a year on death, coming up with weapons such as daisy-cutters, bunker-busters, cluster bombs and other tools of killing,' said peace crusader Helen Caldicott. "She added that the use of depleted uranium ammunition by US troops in Iraq is tantamount to using nuclear weapons. As a result, cases of cancer in children below five has increased by 700 per cent.'The women are afraid to conceive for fear that their offspring will be deformed.'”
