Cancer Incidence In Fallujah Worse Than Hiroshima

One of the provisions of the Geneva Conventions reads "fixed establishments and mobile medical units of the Medical Service may in no circumstances be attacked, but shall at all times be respected and protected by the Parties to the conflict." And yet the front page of the New York Times was this following the assault of Fallujah in 2004. What you are looking at, cheered on by the media, is a war crime punishable by death if any of the patients shackled happened to die as a consequence of their treatment.

But this is not the worst of it. Chemical weaponry was used on the inhabitants of Fallujah as US officials admitted. But the staggering increase in cancer incidence, 38 fold increases in leukemia, twice the incidence at Hiroshima, is suggesting in the mind of Dr Chris Busby the use of uranium based weaponry. The results of a study recently released lend support to this conclusion. The report is being covered in international press. See for instance here. The full report is here.

Apparently this recently released report is unworthy of reporting so far in the United States.


Google search shows that this story is being covered in Russia, covered in Lebanon, covered in Britain. Not the US though.
