By Oscar Heck,

It is a matter of life or death! Venezuela must keep the US military at bay... commentarist writes: Before reading this article, I would like to ask readers to be prepared to come face to face with some highly disturbing photos and information ... information which is finally coming to the forefront ... information which people such as myself have been aware of for some time ... information that has been intentionally hidden ... information that every single human being on this planet should be aware of.

It is a matter of life or death!

Please read attentively and most importantly, please take the time to follow the links (click of the underlined blue text). Once you have finished reading this article and the links provided, please pass on the information to as many people as you can. It is critical for the future of humanity. If we sit by and do nothing about it, we will be ensuring the death of this planet and its inhabitants.

This article deals with nuclear weapons.

I worked in Kuwait city during the Gulf War (1991) when the daytime skies were black and orange from the many oil-well fires. The city was partially destroyed and the airport had sustained heavy damage. I stayed at the International Hotel, across from the US Embassy compound near the waterfront and at the bullet-riddled Crown Plaza Hotel on Airport road.

During the several months I worked in Kuwait and in the subsequent months when I worked in Saudi Arabia I met many US soldiers. Certain images of US soldiers have been deeply engraved in my mind.

The most striking thing was the age of the soldiers ... they appeared to be children, 18,19,20,21 year-olds. Many were very sick, physically, emotionally and psychologically. Almost all of them felt that their own government had betrayed them and lied to them about why they were there. Many of the soldiers were traumatized ... they recounted their horror stories and the fact that many (many!) innocent people were killed by the US military, themselves.

For a period of time during the war, the only television station we were able to see was CNN. What CNN was airing/reporting was very far from reality. In the same way as CNN covered the recent invasion of Iraq, CNN was then portraying US soldiers as being "happy" heroes, when in fact most of them were scared to death, sick ... and complete emotional wrecks. CNN was portraying the Iraqi soldiers as "the enemy" ... as despicable people who raped and killed innocent people. This was far from being the case. Most Iraqi soldiers were poor young men who followed orders ... in the same way as the young US soldiers did. Young men shot at young men, not knowing why they were fighting.

This is when I began to question the integrity of CNN and of the US government.

Previous to 1991 I was, as most of us, just another person who believed what I was told ... and never really questioned it. I believed in good faith and in the honorability of governments and the media. After 1991, it all changed for me ... as it did for most Gulf War Veterans, many of whom to this day continue to suffer from an unknown illness, a "mystery illness." I witnessed first hand how sick some of the soldiers were in Kuwait.

Before I proceed, I would like to present readers with quotes of what some people have written me recently.

"Anyone who blames America for Iraq's poverty is totally uninformed ... If you were an opponent of his regime, you weren't prosperous at all -- you were in prison, tortured, or dead. His son's favorite method of execution was to throw people into a wood-chip making machine. We've dug up 400,000 bodies in mass graves so far. By my estimate Saddam was murdering about 25,000 Iraqis a year in order to maintain his grip on power and keep everyone else frozen with fear. So, you extrapolate those numbers over the next ten or 15 years and you come up with the numbers of lives we saved by getting rid of Saddam."

"Again, a lot of these allegations never turn out to be true when you actually start digging around. Some US soliders have experienced problems from the Gulf War and there has been a massive amount of attention paid to the problem in Congress, led my John McCain, who is one of the best politicians we have and a former POW."

"The bottom line is when it comes to America you can see what you want to see."

"There are things we've done wrong and mistakes made that have resulted in tragedy. There are also millions of people walking around the globe today that owe their lives and their freedom to US intervention."

"So, my assessment is that we are a country that does believe in high ideals."

"Your allegations are, again, uninformed, and DO NOT reflect the reality on the ground."

"You need to wake up and understand how the global economy really works today."

"This is a serious accusation. Is such information available? Were nuclear weapons used in that invasion? Depleted uranium munitions were, but that's a different story."

According to several sources, including a site called, the US government admitted to using weapons similar to Napalm in the recent invasion of Iraq. Although these weapons are not called "Napalm," they basically are napalm.

"The Pentagon said it had not tried to deceive. It drew a distinction between traditional napalm, first invented in 1942, and the weapons dropped in Iraq, which it calls Mark 77 firebombs. They weigh 510lbs, and consist of 44lbs of polystyrene-like gel and 63 gallons of jet fuel. ... You can call it something other than napalm but it is still napalm. It has been reformulated in the sense that they now use a different petroleum distillate, but that is it. The US is the only country that has used napalm for a long time. I am not aware of any other country that uses it ... Marines returning from Iraq chose to call the firebombs "napalm"."

According to several sources, the US government tested Agent Orange and depleted uranium (DU) weapons in Puerto Rico.

"Test trials of Agent Orange were carried out in Puerto Rico. The US imposed a military government on Puerto Rico a century ago when it was seized from the Spanish. The island of Vieques (40 miles off the coast, population 5,500) has been used for target practise by the US military for the last 60 years. Since 1980 it has been used for test firing of depleted uranium munitions, chemical contaminants have found their way into ground water, local crabs have 20 times the normal levels of heavy metals, cancer rates amongst the island's population is twice the national average ... In a locked room of Tu Du Obstetrical and Gynaecological Hospital in Saigon are rows of formaldehyde-filled jars containing deformed foetuses, a grotesque illustration of Man's inhumanity to Man. The level of poverty in Vietnam prevents the preservation of further examples. Many of the living have fared little better, limb deformities, cancers."

The USA is using nuclear weapons.

In order to bypass laws and to allow for the use of napalm weapons against Iraqis in the recent invasion of Iraq, the US military (or someone) simply changed the name of the weapon and slightly modified the ingredients. In much the same way, the US government has been deceiving us regarding depleted uranium ... which has been used in weapons against Iraqis and Afghanis in the recent US invasions.

Depleted uranium weapons are apparently not categorized as nuclear weapons.

This is where we have been fooled, once again. We have been led to believe that DU is basically harmless. It turns out that this is not the case. DU is very dangerous and there is reliable information to support this. Weapons that contain DU are essentially nuclear weapons ... and the USA has been using them in large quantities in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The US government is using nuclear weapons!

Please read the following short article. It is written by Leuren Moret who is an international radiation specialist and environmental commissioner for the City of Berkeley, California. Below are sections of the article:

"I have worked in two U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories, and in 1991 I became a whistleblower at the Livermore lab. Depleted uranium is very, very, very nasty stuff: Depleted uranium (DU) weaponry meets the definition of weapon of mass destruction in two out of three categories under U.S. Federal Code Title 50 Chapter 40 Section 2302."

"Since 1991, the U.S. has released the radioactive atomicity equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs into the global atmosphere."

"The U.S. has permanently contaminated the global atmosphere with radioactive pollution having a half-life of 2.5 billion years."

"The U.S. has illegally conducted four nuclear wars in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and twice in Iraq since 1991, calling DU 'conventional' weapons when in fact they are nuclear weapons."

"DU is the Trojan Horse of nuclear war - it keeps giving and keeps killing. There is no way to clean it up, and no way to turn it off because it continues to decay into other radioactive isotopes in over 20 steps."

"Terry Jemison at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs stated in August 2004 that over 518,000 Gulf-era veterans (14-year period) are now on medical disability, and that 7,039 were wounded on the battlefield in that same period. Over 500,000 U.S. veterans are homeless. "

"In some studies of soldiers who had normal babies before the war, 67 percent of the post-war babies are born with severe birth defects - missing brains, eyes, organs, legs and arms, and blood diseases."

"In southern Iraq, scientists are reporting five times higher levels of gamma radiation in the air, which increases the radioactive body burden daily of inhabitants. In fact, Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan are uninhabitable."

"After Vietnam, Henry Kissinger said, 'Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy. . .'(from Chapter 5 in the "Final Days" by Woodward and Bernstein)."

Leuren Moret is part of a new documentary called "Beyond Treason." It is about the history of treason by the U.S. government against its own soldiers ... about Atomic veterans, MK-Ultra, Agent Orange and DU. The documentary is co-written by Joyce Riley, spokesperson for the American Gulf War Veterans Association ... and several Gulf War Veterans are featured in the film.

I think it is important for readers to take the time to visit their site here. Scroll down to the bottom and you can click to watch "a two minute theatrical trailer." Please watch the trailer ... and then spread the news to others.

It is a matter of life or death!

Although I have not yet seen the documentary, I have a strong feeling that everyone should watch it. I am ordering my copy.

The documentary website states: "From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a 'mystery disease.' How many more will have to die before action is taken?"

This "mystery disease" appears to be caused by the use of nuclear weapons, DU weapons included.

Another site states: "Decades of Nuclear Testing has demonstrated the effects of 1200 nuclear weapon tests conducted at the Nevada Test Site; and the US Government admitted in Nov. 2002, that every living person in the US between 1958-63 was exposed to this fall out resulting in cancer, gene mutation, heart disease, autism, diabetes, Parkinsons, ALS, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome , hypothyroidism in new-borns, obesity and learning disabilities. One out of twelve children in the US is disabled. The fall out did not stop at the US borders. It travelled around the world, as atmospheric dust and remains even in the biosphere/ sub-orbital space today. High breast cancer rates have been co-located in the proximity of nuclear power plants in the west and more so in the east coast areas of the US"

"The long-term effects from over a decade of DU exposures are emerging in Southern Iraq. They are devastating. The increased quantities of radio-active material ( including non-depleted uranium), used in Afghanistan are 3 to 5 times greater than Iraq 199. In Iraq 2003 they are already estimated to be 6 to 10 times 1991 and will travel through a larger area and affect many more people, babies and unborn. Countries within a 1000 mile radius of Baghdad and Kabul are being affected by radiation poisoning ..."

"Testimonies of fathers and mothers are horrifying. What else do the Americans want ? They killed us , they turned our new-borns into horrific deformations, and they turned our farm lands into grave-yards, and destroyed our homes. On top of all this their planes fly over and spray us with bullets.. we have nothing to lose..."

(Note: Water supplies seems to be one of the main vehicles to deliver radiation to humans!)

What is now happening in Afghanistan and Iraq is what will happen in Venezuela if the US government attacks Venezuela. Children will be born dead and disfigured or worse yet, alive and horribly deformed (as seen in the 2 minute trailer above). People will become sicker and sicker. Cancer will be rampant, soil and water supplies will be contaminated and people will be dying from radiation-induced diseases for generations.

Venezuela must keep the US military at bay...

... but, more importantly, the people of the USA must themselves do something about their own government. The people of the USA have been lied to by their own government ... and the US government continues to lie.

If the people of the USA do nothing, the entire world will be contaminated within a few short years and, in the future, people will no longer look human ... humans in the future will be mutants. It has already begun.

This is not science fiction. This is reality. Take another look at the movie trailer. 340 tons of DU were used in the Gulf War. 2400 tons of DU were dumped into Iraq during the recent invasion of Iraq by the USA. (On a similar note, the US government is proudly collaborating with the Colombian government -- and perhaps Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador -- in a program to eradicate coca plantations by spraying the plantations with chemicals ... which are apparently -- and no doubt -- getting into the local drinking water supplies!)

I will now repeat one of the quotes from the beginning of this article. Astoundingly, the reader who made the comment (repeated below), made it after I sent her/him the links to "Beyond Treason."

"There are things we've done wrong and mistakes made that have resulted in tragedy. There are also millions of people walking around the globe today that owe their lives and their freedom to US intervention."

Free to live in nuclear contamination for generations to come?

Free to eat, drink and breath radiation?

Free to live as brain-damaged twisted pieces of flesh?

As I finish writing this article, the same person sends me another letter. Here are parts of it:

"Okay, Oscar, here's Chavez latest insult to my country. He called the United States the 'most savage, cruel and murderous empire that has existed in the history of the world' ... First of all, it's clear Mr. Chavez doesn't know the history of Stalin and Mao who were collectively responsible for ... second, his assertion that America is going to invade Venezuela is completely idiotic ... third, he says Iran is a regime under attack by imperialism and expressed solidarity with the Islamic fascist regime in Tehran ... I've had it with this lying, ignorant, sociopath, Oscar. Hugo Chavez just made an enemy of me, and I am a formiddable opponent."

What kind of person would state that someone is now their enemy simply because that person is speaking the truth?

* It is because of people who think this way, and react this way, that DU is being dropped on "enemies."
* It is because of people who think and react this way that the world, as we know it, will come to an end ... sooner than later.

This is no joke!
