Rock-a-bye Baby...

Do you remember this nursery rhyme ?

Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

I woke up humming it and have not stopped since...I remember humming it to the babies I rocked to sleep. I wished, I was given the time to hum it to my own before he was gone. And now am not so sure anymore...

I am not so sure, what is worse -- losing yours or waiting for 9 months, going through the motions, the nausea, the aches, the heaviness, the labour pains, the blood, the tears -- the birth pangs of the new Iraq.

Imagine you're an expecting mother in the new Iraq or a father to be. Imagine the anticipation, the preparations, the plans you dream for your child. You dream, there is nothing wrong with dreaming, unless you want to pull these away from us too.

So you dream, knowing full well, that a lot of them won't come true. It's difficult, all is difficult. All is survival. No more prenatal care, no more decent hospitals, no doctors, no nurses, no midwives... But you dream nonetheless. Maybe your husband is still lingering, rotting away in a prison, and you dream that by the time he comes out, if he comes out alive, he will at least be greeted with fresh new blood, an untainted blood. His child.

Maybe -- you say to yourself and authorize your self to dream a little more...

You may be worried and anxious that you will not find the means to support him/her, but something in you trusts that the One who made it possible, will also somehow, somewhere provide. Hope-- this new little one gives you hope.

And then arrives the day. And you're either lying in some dirty hospital bed with no sheets, or on the floor in your home with no furniture, and you say to yourself -- patience, it's coming. You keep propping yourself with more positive thoughts, and despite your miserable conditions, you still find the tears of joy flowing on your face, washing away some of your pain. You have managed to give Life in a sea of Death.

And then...the reality of the new Iraq hits you, slashes you away, cuts deep inside of you like a sharp knife, another tear in your soul.

And you're told you've just given birth to a monster baby. A deformed thing. You can't tell his eyes from his nose. Or maybe she looks like a fish, with her deformed mouth and her skin scaling away in your arms. Or maybe his head has a thromboblastic tumor the size of a grapefruit. Or maybe, her spinal cord is missing several vertebrae so she falls over like a shrivelled vegetable, like a wilted flower...

And you sit and watch him/her, slowly agonize and die, or worse still, living life lying on his/her back unable to sit, crawl, walk or talk...

The birth pangs of the new Iraq -- all there, for you to witness.

White Phosphorus, Napalm, DU, cluster bombs...a few colors on your criminal artistic palette -- the art of murder. The colors of your rainbow.

During "Operation Desert Storm" in 1991, it is a well known fact that Depleted Uranium and Napalm bombs were used in Baghdad and Basra.

During "Operation Iraqi Freedom" - from 2003 until this very day, again depleted Uranium, white Phosphorus, Napalm and cluster bombs were and are used.

Two sure documented cases -- Falluja in 2004 and Mosul in 2007. (for the Mosul pictures - click here. Warning - graphic images that may shock you - To hell with you.)

And more studies show that the ever growing rates, of the following -- child deformities, cancer and other diseases, in particular of the neurological kind are a DIRECT RESULT of these weapons of mass destruction. You wanted to know where the WMD's are -- they are right here in Iraq being used by YOU.

As far back as 1991, I collected hundreds of pictures, from Iraqi pediatric hospitals in Baghdad and Basra. I showed them to a visiting Western consultant pediatrician. He sucked on his pipe and said "this is all very strange. I can't tell for sure. We need to wait longer to see if more of these "cases" are reported."

And we have waited from 1991 until today, and these "cases" are multiplying at a vertiginous rate. So how many more "cases" do you need ? O' so civilized members of the international "scientific" community.

I wish I had a scanner, I would have scanned all of them for you to watch. But knowing what kind of people you are, you'd probably have a fit of ecstasy at the sight.

Infants born with holes in their backs, two tumors instead of two eyes, no kidneys, no mouth and no lips. three hands, no toes...and not mentioning the cancer wards where thousands of Iraqi children have died thanks to your colorful "rainbow."

Only a few days ago, Al-Jazeera interviewed a doctor in Falluja who spoke of the deformities of Iraqi newborns and the long term effects of these forbidden weapons and agents, on the DNA make up of the Iraqi population. Another doctor from the South, by the name of Haidar Shama'a was also interviewed and he confirmed that he saw similar cases in Basra as far back as 1991.

But being the typical sectarian bastard that he is, he added -- " we can't be sure that the cases in Falluja are due to DU or Phosphorus, it may be something INHERENT to the genetic make up of the people of Falluja.".

He reminded me of the Western consulting pediatrician. But I somehow found him even more repugnant than his western counterpart, who sucked on his pipe, while examining the pictures of our little ones, our little monsters, courtesy of USA, GB and Iran. Yes, Iran -- seeing the heinous, sectarian, racist, fascist attitude as per the uttering of this piece of shit called Dr.Shama'a regarding the little ones in (Sunni)Falluja.

So where was I ? Ah, yes - the nursery rhyme.

Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

And the wind blew, the bough broke, the cradle fell. And since, we have not stopped rocking our babies into a total silent hush, into an eternal sleep.

Here is some info about an ACTUAL nuclear bomb:

"...Most sources refer to a great number ... born with deformities ... [this is] commonly accepted urban myth and unsupported by the actual events and studies.
... Both Japanese and American medical institutes launched a massive and thorough epidemiological study after the war. ... deaths from nuclear effects are not the alarmist tens of thousands up to 105,000 claimed in several sources. The subsequent deaths are actually less than 1,000 from the combined cities. ... from the pregnant women irradiated by the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bursts only 30 fetuses subsequently developed mental disabilities after they were born and no physical deformities were noted. There have also been no significant birth problems ..."

Don't try to lay this pile of poo at our door and make us own it. Saddam did far more to poison the environment for Iraqis. I am sure those massive oil well fires caused plenty of cancer

You went to all that trouble of denying Iraq was poisoned by yankee nuclear weapons but then try to convince SANE humans that Saddam poisoned the environment with "OIL WELL FIRES".

Are you a comedian by day?

Dearest Layla,
Great post, yet again.Thank you.

You said and rightly so :
" During "Operation Desert Storm" in 1991, it is a well known fact that Depleted Uranium and Napalm bombs were used in Baghdad and Basra.

During "Operation Iraqi Freedom" - from 2003 until this very day, again depleted Uranium, white Phosphorus, Napalm and cluster bombs were and are used."

I would like to add, lest the greg's of this world forget or deny, that throughout the SANCTION years -i.e between 1991 and 2003- Iraq was continuously being bombed also and it wasn't with coloured marshmallows, of that we are sure!!!!

I think Greg harbours a lot of jealousy against President Saddam Hussein. Every time a topic comes up, he never fails to mention Iraq's LEGITIMATE President, like a child going tit for tat. I guess we shouldn't be surprised - after all, Iraq was led and held together by a MAN (who remained a MAN to his untimely death at the hands of the USans and their stooges) while the US has to make do with an imbecile with nothing in the space between his ears, a pathological liar and murderer of innocents - men, women and children, someone so out of touch with reality and the rest of the world, he is a laughing stock globally. And, yet, he continues to blabber on the world stage hoping someone is listening, but the entire world has tuned out.

Go and enlighten yourself, Greg, before you write infantile posts. It may be possible that even a USan might develop some intelligence, insha'allah.

A Criminal Record ...

The story is told of a very rich Pakistani millionaire who went to Australia to watch his 'boys' play cricket. The Aussie at passport control sat fingering through his passport for ages, looking as unfriendly as he could manage.

At last he growled: 'Have you got a criminal record?'

The Pakistani businessman smiled sweetly and said, 'I am terribly sorry, Sir; unfortunately, I don't have one. Nobody told me that it was still a requirement to get into your good country.'

I don't understand how anyone can be inspired to feel anything else but love for such an intelligent, creative, wise, generous, honest, virtuous people as the Iraqis.
Greed, power lust, racism, religious obsessions, nothing can explain such a perversion of the natural instinct of attraction towards the Beauty.

Teach me your ways, so I can live with strength in my heart and peace in my soul.
In Jesus name, I cast all my burdens onto you Lord.
Take me Lord and give me a new life.

Not my will, but your will be done!"

Then wait patiently for the miracle to happen within you. Watch as the Holy Spirit makes the hate dissolve. Your anger will disappear. You'll laugh at those who come against you, because you know that God is with you. Listen, as the Holy Spirit guides you through the trials and tribulations. Be amazed by what God will do for you!

It's amazing that some people claim the bible is wrong, yet we can flip thru it and see ourselves within the pages. Over a thousand years old and the human condition can still be studied in it’s pages. The names and faces have changed, but everything else is still the same. You’ll see haters, betrayers, friends, saints and sinners. Most importantly you’ll see the grace and mercy of God.

As a father of 4; I can tell you in all honesty that I have often wondered if having children at all today isn’t just a selfish act.

How difficult and deeply hurtful and frightning it must be for children in the Middle East to learn that many in the Anglo-Centric nations, (particularly America) not only wish; but are taking actions; to see them dead because someone who shares their skin colour pissed on an American flag; or because someone’s RV has high gas consumption.

By the way, I am throughly detested by what the U.S. and Israel have been using in their wars against the innocent, such as depleted uranium and cluster bombs, both of which should be banned by international law so that the they can be charged for war crimes against humanity.

Your comment about the certainty of use of DU bombs is totally false. There is no such thing as a DU bomb. DU is not used in bombs. It was used in kinetic energy penetrators used only against armored vehicles. There were no tanks in Fallujah, so DU was not used in either of the two intensive infantry assaults on dug in Al Quaeda and Sunni insurgent forces that had turned Fallujah into a mini-Taliban like state within Iraq. Are you the voice of the Sunni insurgency? If not, do you believe in the truth or just like to post lies? Your readers deserve to know.

The monstrous birth defect photos first appeared in a German Doctor's book after he came back from being indoctrinated by Saddam's government in 1993. At least one of his photos was immediately challenged when it appeared in the British Medical Journal. Had the other photos also been published in a medical journal, I am quite sure that did that every single one would be challenged by a number of the physicians who view it as being due to rare genetic diseases and not due to depleted uranium as claimed by Saddam (and Layla's) propaganda.

Dr Tillman Keller of the German publisher advised as follows: the first two of your photos show babies with the Harlequin Fetus Syndrome, see

The British Medical Journal published this correction (the misattributed photo in question was the only photo that they had previously published with the article)

In this news story (14 August, p 401) we published a picture of a “boy with unknown skin disease thought to be linked with use of depleted uranium.” This caption was incorrect. We received several electronic responses ( pointing out that this disease is dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

Depleted Uranium and cluster bombs are two entirely different things. Cluster bombs have a bad habit of not all exploding when they are dropped, but are one of the only munitions that are effective against a wide area, such as an area where someone is launching missiles. New cluster bombs are going to be required to defuse themselves at some short period after they have been used so that they no longer will kill or maim the innocent. Depleted uranium is not used in bombs and is not banned by any treaty. It is not considered a weapon of mass destruction and it is not a "nuclear weapon". DU kinetic energy penetrators were exceptionally successful in destroying Saddam Hussein's massive armored force, so his government began this propaganda campaign that has been continued by Layla and the ignorant peace activist posters who support her distortion of the facts. If any of you want to write me, I will be glad to point out some facts - I don't deal in myths; and if I can not verify information, I don' post it. I work for no one, I am an independent researcher who in the beginning just knew enough to know that DU had nothing in common with nuclear weapons or nuclear fallout and since then have dug very deeply looking for facts. In the process, I found out that many of the frequent posters and people quoted by other frequent posters such as Douglas Lind Rokke, Leuren K Moret, Chris Busby, Asaf Durakovic and others were liars, more interested in having people idolize them and come to their personal appearances or buy their books and DVDs than putting out factual information about either themselves or DU. I have exposed these con artists and will continue to do so. The DU issue has poisoned relations between US and many Iraqis and others in the Mid East and it has been a manufactured controversy that began with Saddam Hussein's propaganda.
