13129 malformed children have been born in Iraq in the last five years. Their deformities have been caused by American Depleted Uranium munitions used in the American led 1991 "Desert Storm" war with Irak launched after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. The war saw heavy use of depleted uranium rounds by American and British forces and was followed by a punitive sanctions regime enforced by the United Nations primarily at America’s behest. The sanctions included preventing Irak from importing drugs for the treatment of cancers and birth defects. The current war on Irak was launched on the pretext that Irak was failing to comply with sanctions and had weapons of mass destruction.

Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.

Does "peace" mean that your aunt does not weep as she talks of how the young couples she serves ask her after the X-Ray

Well is it a child or is it a monster?

And how she curses the Americans who littered our land with Uranium munitions and then denied us the cancer drugs. Because we needed to be,


We sand niggers who had been abandoned to the tyrant you had supported for years needed to be,

According to the green zone government Ministry of Health the numbers of maimed children born with defects in Irak after the United States used over 940 thousand depleted uranium rounds in the war with Iraq in 1991 in the last 5 years is 13129.

The report from Al Melaf gives the statistics from a Ministry of Health briefing on the number of children born with birth defects since 2001 as 13129 in total.

The number of deformed children born last year was more than 1919.

Ninewa (Nineveh) province, has the highest number of children born maimed as 411.

Baghdad is next with 372 children born distorted.

Basra has seen the birth of 300 distorted children .

Between 30 to 40 children per month are born with defects attributed to their mothers inhalation of radioactive dust from depleted uranium rounds. The American army used depleted uranium during the last war and this was confirmed by a German team who visited Irak recently and were able to obtain a missile which proved after checking that the American forces used depleted uranium.

Editor’s note:

The full text of the report from Al Melaf contains interviews with parents and accounts their children’s deaths. I haven’t had the time to translate them. They can be found here.

Readers will recall that Albright was Secretary of State (Foreign Minister) under President Clinton. They may also recall that current American Senator and presidential candidate Senator Hilary Clinton was a willing participant in the Clinton "two for the price of one." electioneering which helped bring her husband to the White House.

I have been unable to find any expression of concern by Senator Clinton either for the fate of the children affected by DU or the sanctions regime which denied cancer and other drugs to treat those children or even any expression of concern about the health of American soldiers in that war affected by DU dust. I did however find plenty of coverage of her remarks about how she would not withdraw American troops from Irak.

Senator Clinton’s campaign recently launched an campaign advertisement in which her concern for ex-President Clinton’s health was highlighted.

A video report Paying The Price: Killing The Children Of Iraq on this topic can be viewed below the link will open in a new window. The report lasts 1 hr 15 min 4 sec the film was made before America launched the current war on Irak.

Note to Americans they don’t hate you for your freedoms they hate you for starving, maiming, and murdering their children.
