Children of a Lesser God...

Al Jazeera does not want to shock its viewers with "too strong" pictures of deformed Iraqi babies...we don't want to disturb you with our birth defects, so you can keep sweeping it and them under the carpet, or maybe in tiny babies coffins...there they go, underground, deep in the earth's belly, well covered up in dust...and rest assured their cries will not wake you up either...

I am personally not too worried about your comfort zone...

During the sanction years, thousands of Iraqi children died as a result of your humane embargo, over half a million - 500'000 Iraqi kids...not to mention the start of birth defects when Iraq was bombed into oblivion in 1991 by bombs carrying Depleted Uranium Freedom and Liberation...to the extent that Iraqi mothers are discouraged from getting pregnant...oh but that's nothing too...who wants these savages to breed anyways ?! Only your race is allowed to breed and reproduce in the best possible conditions...

There is no cause for concern as far as you're concerned, because after all these are just Iraqi, Arab kids...lists of their names will never be published....no one will mention or remember them... Quietly they came and quietly they'll go...very much like your silence...


Synopsis

Doctors in the Iraqi city of Falluja are handling up to 15 times as many birth defects as they were one year ago.
The chronic deformities include multiple tumours, heart problems, nervous system anomalies and eye deficiencies.
Residents of the city blame the surge in chronic deformities on controversial weapons used by US forces against Sunni fighters in 2004.
White phosphorus and depleted uranium shells were allegedly among the munitions used...
