Iraq is Fucked (songs for Iraq)

I know what you're thinking..."duh, of course Iraq is fucked." and you're right, but I just wanted to reaffirm that, and explore a typically unexplored issue.

Of course the war is looking more and more never ending. We are trying to put more responsibility on the Iraqi security forces so we can gradually step back. I think the Iraqi security forces are the only ones who don't want us to do that. They may be even more hated than the U.S. military. So the war will never end, at least untill it's useless and unlivable. That is not a good prospect.

How else are they fucked, they're poor. So economic stability in the country is a fairy tale.

Other than the constant danger of any Iraqi civilian being shot in the back or seeing a relative shot in the head, there are also more abstract health risks that they and veterans of the war have to deal with.

The U.S. military has admitted to using depleted Uranium. They originally began using them as DU "penetrators," which are shells that are used because they're extremely high density and can penetrate heavy armor, not because they're radioactive. The U.S. Government does not believe that these radioactive particles are dangerous, because there is no proof that it is what's causing the spike in cancer incidents in adults and children after the first Iraq war, as well as an increase in birth defects. Soldiers have also suffered from what is called "gulf war syndrom." Veterans of the first Iraq war are 60% more likely to get cancer than the rest of the population. Is this a result of DU? It's hard to tell when there are so many other contaminants in the air in Iraq. For example we know that Saddam used chemical weapons against the kurds. What happened to these? They probably got blown up by American missiles and are floating around somewhere in Iraq. The country is basically a stew of toxins both chemical and radioactive. This makes it very difficult to blame it solely on DU particles. but one thing is for sure, it can be blamed entirely on the Bush family. Actually that's not fair, I'll give Saddam 2% blame.

DU emits alpha particles. Although these particles cannot penetrate through clothing or skin, if they are inhaled and trapped inside the body can do major damage to cells before leaving the body. THe thing is when a DU shell was taken to Germany for testing, the scientists wore radioactive suits to protect themselves and there was extreme caution exercised in not letting civilians anywhere near it. These are scattered all across Iraq. Sixteen US military vehicles were hit with friendly fire, (DU shells) they were sent to a decontamination facililty in South Carolina where they had to be buried in a low level radiation waste dump because they were too dangerous. We wouldn't want any westerners getting contaminated. THe people in Iraq are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. especially since the areas where the shells were found will remail contaminated for 4.5 billion years.

THis shows the utter brutality of war. The complete disregard for human life, the indifference for anything other than their plan that's like a game. It's the simply the x's and o's of the corporate controlled government. How could anyone not see that this war is for oil.

The Coup - 5 Million Ways to Kill a CEO

I am sick of hearing soldiers use the "I was just following orders" excuse. That's not an excuse, It's the same excuse that was spoken in Nazi Germany. It's time for people to take responsibility for their actions. If I ever hear another soldier proudly say those words I swear to god I will spit in their face. and face the consequences. So many people look at our soldiers as noble heroes, and some of them are. but so many people think soldier is synonomous with hero and are afraid to question their morals. I've met many people who serve(d) in the war, and most of them are my age and like video games just like I do. They played too much halo and now they have the want to take the next step from their previous life of harmless virtual manifestations. Then there are the ones who needed money for college, most of the people my age while not all of them fall in one of these two catagories. What both of them have in common is that they're apolitical and detached. Many of these people are former friends and former classmates and I don't hate them, I just feel sorry for them. In my experiences soldiers get irrationally enraged when you question their morals, and I don't want to get beaten.

So when the random guy in the army who's republican, but knows nothing about politics that comes to my porch at 3 in the morning tanked, I'm civil. And since I am also drunk at 3 in the morning we usually end up hugging eachother with him saying

"man I respect you and I respect your opinion man" and I say
"Man I repect you too but man you have to realize the war is bullshit."

Here's to signing up for the army

Adult. - Bad Idea

How can they think that it's ok to kill because someone they don't know is starting a war for a reason that has nothing to do with them. They are pawns and are totally ok with that.
Here's to going somewhere other than Iraq.
