I just saw this picture, courtesy of the brave doctors at the Fallujah General Hospital. Please, tell me, how this can this be described in any other way except that we bombed these poor people with weapons of mass destruction, with terrible harm-causing weapons. And this is the result.
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…
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.
Another update from the Birth Defects in Fallujah Facebook page. Look at this precious baby’s hands and feet.
And this beatiful boy’s legs
So many children born in Fallujah in July of this year with birth defects, and that’s just one month. This is not right. The US needs to take responsibilty for this. Our weapons did this. It’s just not right.
From the Birth Defects in Fallujah Facebook page today:
