More Babies. There Are Always More Babies…

More pictures, More babies.

I wonder what the reaction would be in the US to pictures like these. Pictures from ONE HOSPITAL in ONE CITY. A city that we happened to have bombed heavily.  What if that tables were turned? What would be the reaction, the outcry?

These innocent babies are the product of Bush’s war. Don’t make him a hero now…

When Will There be Justice for the Babies?

I haven’t updated this blog in a while. Not because there haven’t been any babies, there are always the babies.  Thanks so much to the brave doctor(s) who maintain(s) the Birth Defects in Fallujah Facebook and Twitter accounts. Without his or her or their documentation we wouldn’t know. I wish there were something I could DO about it…at the very least I try to help them to spread the news.

This is not right…

This is just one of the babies that has been born since I last updated this blog. Here are some others:

I think of these babies often. I hope that someday the world changes and we elect leaders with compassion and a conscience.  I don’t know what else to do except pray for that, and post pictures of the babies.

More Babies in Fallujah

I encourage anyone reading this blog to follow Fallujah Birth Defects on twitter – @FDefects. I am posting some of their recent pictures below. That all of these babies were born in Fallujah in just the past few weeks just doesn’t seem right. How many more babies have to suffer?  I am sickened and saddened that I live in a country that caused this and won’t take any responsibility for it. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. But I am sorry. All I can do is help them to show the world. We can all do that…

Thinking of Mosul

This blog is primarily about the babies in Fallujah…but only because they are what moved me to try to understand the horrible effects of the US occupation in Iraq.  So I focused on the situation in Fallujah, but really all of the people of Iraq have suffered from our misguided war. It saddens me so to read about the latest US atrocity, the bombing of civilians in Mosul”

Of course the US will do everything in its power to avoid taking full responsibility. When will this end?  We must continue to oppose those who perpetrate these war crimes. My thoughts go out to all of the families. NO ONE deserved this. Peace…
