Iraq War Atrocities
Never in human history have such genocide and cruelty been witnessed. Such a genocide
was never seen in the time of the pharaohs nor of Hitler nor of Mussolini
~ Mehmet Elkatmi
head of Turkish parliament’s human rights commission on Bush’s genocide in
the Iraq war. 2004-11-28, originally reported in the Sunday
Times of Australia, since withdrawn.
What does Elkatmi mean? He clearly does not mean Bush has already killed 6 million
people as Hitler did. He is referring to the cruelty. Even Hitler refused to use poison
gas. Hitler and Stalin only used a handful of tortures. Bush has concocted over 70. Bush
is a torture and atrocity gourmet. Further, Bush’s systematic extinction of the
Iraqi people apparently has no motive. It is violence for the sake of violence.

accused rapist and murderer

accused rapist and murderer
Six US soldiers have been charged with gang
raping a 14 year old Iraqi girl then murdering
her, and her 5-year old sister and her parents. Accused include Pcf. Steven Green of
Midland Texas, Spc. James Barker, Sgt. Paul Cortez, Pfc. Jesse Spielman, Pfc. Bryan
Howard and Sgt. Anthony Yribe. If these men are convicted, it would be fitting if
they were treated for the rest of their lives as dangerous sex offenders and driven
out of every town they try to live.
- The four soldiers — Pfc. Corey R. Clagett, Spc. William B. Hunsaker, Staff
Sgt. Raymond L. Girouard and Spc. Juston R. Graber have been accused of killing blindfolded Iraqi detainees
- Col. Michael Steele ordered his soldiers to kill all military age males.
- Lining up unarmed civilians and shooting them execution style, just as the Nazis
- American soldiers used white phosphorus in the operation Phantom Fury attack on Fallujah. Though white
phosphorus is not specifically banned, all incendiaries were banned by the UN
in 1980. White phosphorus spreads on the skin and catches
fire. It cannot be extinguished or washed off with water. In military slang, white
phosphorus is known as Willy
Pete. or Whiskey Pete.
Italian TV broke the story. The Boston Globe,All Headline News and Reuters reported
the story. Italian TV did a documentary on the American use of white phosphorus on
the citizens of Fallujah. You can play a low-res version of the movie online

the movie with BitTorrent

hi-res version. Last revised/verified: 2005-11-08
- Mark 77 Incendiary bombs All
incendiaries have been banned by the UN (United Nations)
since 1980. The department of defence has admitted to using MK-77 in Iraq.
MK-77 is just napalm in canisters.
- Bush has completely ignored the Geneva conventions in this
war. He has behaved even worse that Hitler in that regard. Read them for yourself the
Geneva Conventions treaty the USA signed at the UN
that it is flagrantly violating. America flagrantly
You smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells
like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a
hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn’t
find one of ’em, not one stinkin’ dink body. The smell, you know that
gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like… victory.
American soldiers used napalm in the attack on Fallujah. Napalm has been banned by the
UN since 1980. The Iraqi puppet government made this complaint against
the USA. Giuliana Sgrena, the
Italian journalist Americans shot at with 400 bullets, accused the Americans of using
napalm in Fallujah. : source

gas: even Hitler refused to use this.
- nerve gas: even Hitler refused to use this. On 2005-03-01, Dr. Khalid ash-Shaykhli of Iraq’s Ministry of Health
made the revelation at a Baghdad press
conference :U.S. forces used mustard gas, nerve gas and other burning chemical
weapons against Iraqi civilians in their November assault on the city of Falluja.
- Depleted Uranium:
featuring Pulitzer prize winner John Hanchette and Pentagon DU (Depleted Uranium)
expert Dr. Doug Rokke, a serving officer for
30 years. It is mostly about the experiences with
DU in the first Gulf
War. America, Britain, Russia and Pakistan all convert their nuclear power plant
wasted into DU weapons and sell them on the international market. A
DU round is 10 pounds
of solid uranium, contaminated with plutonium, americium, neptunium and uranium-236.
It catches fire the instant it leaves the barrel. On impact, 40-50% spalls (breaks
off into tiny bb sized shrapnel). The oxides form a fine inhalable powder. One third
of the Gulf War vets are on permanent disability. [The Gulf War soldiers were in Iraq
a tiny fraction of the time the soldiers are being kept in Iraq.] Rokke says he was
ordered to lie about DU, because the military was determined to continue using
it, despite the danger to US troops. Bush sent troops to Iraq with known defective
gas masks. In the Iraq heat, the sweat breaks contact at the side of the face. Since
the Iraq war started in 2003, American forces have fired at
least 120 tons of shells packed with depleted
- American soldiers used poison gas
in the attack on Fallujah. The US admitted to using banned white phosphorus bombs for illumination in the
levelling of Fallujah.
- According to the prestigious medical journal Lancet,
American soldiers killed over 100,000 civilians, most of
- In one month of the war, Associated Press tallied 3,240
civilians deaths in Iraq. The count was fragmentary, and the complete toll is sure
to be significantly higher.
- Before the war started, the World Health
Organisation estimated that 100,000 Iraqi civilians could
be wounded and another 400,000 hit by disease after the
bombing of water and sewage facilities and the disruption of food supplies. The
actuality turned out to be considerably worse.
- The UN estimate was
100,000 people would be
injured in the Iraq war.
- As of 2006-06-05 the estimate was at least 251,102 killed and 532,715 seriously wounded in
Afghanistan and Iraq.
- Iraqi ex-patriates who were in Iraq that I talked to estimated the number of
civilian deaths as a result of the sanction bombings between 1 and 2 million. I find
testimony of the victims more credible than that of the perpetrator of a crime.
- How many Iraqi citizens have died in this war? I would say
30,000, more or less, have died as a result of the initial incursion and the ongoing
violence against Iraqis.
George W. Bush, 2005-12-14.
- Killing 2/3 of the people in Fallujah. Not even Hitler was that
- American soldiers tortured prisoners at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay detention centre. The FBI
corroborated. The story was carried by UPI, The New York Times (which
did dozens of front page stories). Other papers carried it, but have since withdrawn
- Sgt. Erik Saar has written a book called Inside the Wire about his six months torturing
POWs (Prisoner Of Wars)
- American soldiers sexually abused prisoners at Abu Ghraib.
- American soldiers raped children, both male and female.
- American soldiers are issued candy that they hand out to Iraqi
children to attract them to form a human shield.
- U.S. soldiers held Iraqi women hostages in order
to pressure male
relatives to surrender.
- American soldiers cut off water supplies, bombed electric plants
and sewage plants causing epidemics of cholera, dysentery and typhus.
- American soldiers have forbidden Iraqi farmers to grow anything
unless they buy the seed containing terminator genes (to make the
seed sterile) from American companies such as Monsanto.
- American soldiers bombed hospitals, mosques and private
- Bush bombed the water treatment plant in Basra in order
to kill children. This is a repeat of this same Geneva convention violation during
the sanction bombings. This is deeply shameful thing to do because it targets
children specifically. They die faster from lack of water and they die more quickly
from drinking polluted water. This is a particularly grievous war crime. Dying of
thirst is a hideous torture millions of times more painful than you would ever
imagine. I have experienced being tortured this way personally. You must stop this.
- Ongoing burning crops using fireballs dropped from Apache helicopters.
- Assassinated the ITV (Independent Television)
news team after threatening
both the ITV and BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation)
did not arrest, they blew them to tiny pieces.
- Shut down websites that showed any of the dead soldiers,
civilians or destruction. They shut down yellowtimes.org. They shut down whatreallyhappened.com after PayPal cut them off so they could not
receive donations, (which PayPal later did to WikiLeaks). They shut down thenausea.org. I suspect they have a Denial of Service attack going
on aljazeera.net. You can
sometimes find the censored materials by searching with Google and selecting
- Destroyed the cameras of the Lebanon news team that discovered
40 dead Americans.
- The proposed Oregon anti demonstrator bill that provides a 25
year sentence without parole for any demonstrator, if anyone in a demonstration
interferes with commerce or is rowdy, even if that person was a plant. By this law
Martin Luther King would have got life at his first lunch counter protest.
- Dropped three precision bombs by
accident on Iran. They claim these thing are accurate to the foot, but they
could not even get the right country three times.
- Dropped five precision bombs by
accident on Syria 482.80 km (300 miles)
away from Baghdad. Strangely, no bombs at all fell by
accident on Israel which is 321.87 km (200 miles)
- Landed five precision Tomahawk
missiles by accident on Saudi Arabia.
- Sent a missile into a Kuwait shopping center.
- Bombed Children’s
Hospital in Rutbah.
- illegal ammunition used by military contractors.
- The United States stopped firing missiles at Iraq through Turkish
airspace Friday after a missile in flight fell in southeastern Turkey.
- The American soldiers destroyed the Iraqi TV broadcasting
station. The American government has intimidated, shut down or killed most of the
effective voices opposing the war.
The attempt to silence a man is the greatest honour you can bestow on him. It means
that you recognise his superiority to yourself.

- On 2003-04-02 US aircraft hit a
maternity hospital in Baghdad, the city’s trade fair, and other civilian
buildings killing several people and wounding at least 25, At least five cars were
crushed with drivers burned to death inside.
You may think to yourself, our boys could never do things like that.
Watch this video
of US soldiers tormenting a crippled dog. The video of them shooting a dog has been
pulled. People are more squeamish about killing dogs that killing Iraqi children.
While in Iraq we had a sport of killing dogs whenever the Iraqis weren’t shooting
us. So when I shot this one at about 50 yards with my M4 and it ran yelping to lower
ground, we had to finish it so my friends and I went to it and started shooting it.
I’ve never seen a dog take as many shots to the head at least 4 as this one did
and then after we thought it was dead we dug a hole and when I picked it up with the
shovel it came back to life, so we shot it a couple more times…its pretty funny.

The problem I had with choosing one source out of thousands of possibilities to
illustrate each point is that you may have decided to discount anything from the source I
selected. Before you dismiss these allegations, please do a google search yourself and see if you can find information
from sources you do trust. You would expect as much from any citizen in Hitler’s
Germany to investigate the allegations of atrocity, would you not, no matter how
strenuously the state denied them or how outrageously barbaric they sounded.
Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.
The Pentagon shut down websites with news about the war. Your best bet for
news is by passing it along in emails, or by searching Google for the lesser known sites.

In comparison the Iraqis have been perfect gentlemen with only two types of
- burning a corpse
- Washington Post’s report on the conditions in the Iraqi prisons: breaking
hand bones to the point of permanent deformity, dislocating shoulders by hoisting
prisoners into the air by their arms tied behind their backs, shooting, packing 122
prisoners to a cell and rape.
The atrocities of the Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan are nothing new.
They are a direct consequence of imbalance of power. Americans overwhelm their victims in
technology and wealth. That power necessarily corrupts. Humans, not just Americans, are
hard wired to abuse excessive power over others. It took 500 years for the atrocities of
the Spanish Conquistadors to become widely known. Spaniards, Nazis, Russians,
Americans… like all humans, are deeply in denial of their own atrocities. They
work hard to keep them hidden and to attack those who expose them.
The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side,
but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.
