7] The uses of peacefully adapted uses of DU is not the same factorable morass of autocratic-Prevalency that comes from Pentagons, lobbyists, some Congresspersons, since they’re into no-legal-Ends for the means of killing via NSDU-238 i.e. lies. There is a world’s history found [actually] in western “war-as-History” as parable that is the one ‘n oNLY olde-Rome [will rise again that is] utilized as the war-Theory rhetoric for monopolizing trade [free-Will] and wasting monies from taxes thru raising armies of peasants imprisoned in the caste system of not caring for [themselves as] slaves and not becoming a freeman—while the populous sleeps, their tax-Monies are wasted– but who are the slaves!
The olde-Rome won the geography, by “bureaucrats and middle-Men” as plebians became mercenaries who comprised the forces that made a domain-of-Empire thru vicious attacks on Carthage, and upon the peoples who needed not the “Latin” tongue, they were interred to camps as slave-Earnors—another misnomer of astute “war-as-History” reckoning —but not reconciling trade as state minted money. “R”
“According to Iraqi health statistics, the country’s recent increase in health problems has been concentrated in the same areas of the country that took the brunt of U.S. attacks: Baghdad, the southern port city of Basra, and the northern cities of Mosul and Kirkuk.
No similar problems are known to have occurred in Kuwait, where DU was also used, because such weapons were used mainly outside of population centers and because Kuwait carried out a comprehensive, well-funded postwar cleanup of spent munitions and combat wreckage.
Among children throughout Iraq, the number of cancer cases has risen five- fold since 1990, and congenital birth defects and leukemia have tripled, say government health officials. Overall cancer rates among all Iraqis have risen by 38 percent, the Iraqi government says.”
“Iraq has experienced a dramatic increase in child cancers, leukemia and birth defects in recent years. Wisam, Iraqi medical authorities and growing numbers of American activists cast blame on the U.S. weapons containing depleted uranium that were used in the 1991 Gulf War and in the 1998 missile attacks on Baghdad and other major cities. They also assert that such munitions — which were also used by U.S. forces in Bosnia, Kosovo and Serbia in far smaller quantities — may be a cause of Gulf War diseases, elusive maladies that have affected 50,000 to 80,000 U.S. veterans of the 1991 conflict.”
“Military experts regard DU as an almost magically effective material. DU is 1.7 times denser than lead, and when a weapon made with a DU tip or core strikes the side of a tank or bunker, it slices straight through and erupts in a burning radioactive cloud. In addition, armor made of DU appears to make tanks far less vulnerable on the battlefield.
During the Gulf War, U.S. airplanes and tanks fired off munitions containing 320 tons of DU.”
Does any and all NSDU-238 bullets penetrate a DU armored “Abrams tank” or is death by friendly fire UN-known? This is the question of these solicited and ILLEGAL USAGES as friendly fire proves deaths by friendly fire had occurred on numerous occasions in the desert exchanges of retreating “support army” and that of actual-Army—no furtive reports because of “friendly-fire deaths”! INvestigations the penataGooons felt they could not be “isolated” for current spending as well as IMpugning against the sovereignty was, initially what they’d started doing in central-Americas. Lots of people in uniforms made lots
of ‘deaths’ of civilians and uniformed personnel, too! “R”

Again in War by Robert Collier January 13, 2003 by the San Francisco Chronicle
8] Where there is war there is said is that ‘the practice of corruption or graft carries “forward” in ilk-Rebukable patterns. That in Iraqs three-Phases of un-Declared: wars, both stats were prevalent, because non-Accountability of Richard Cheney and george-Enron, as they represented a double-Indemnity of cronyism! Was there also respite of grief? The death to 1.2 millions of Iraq-Lands people, the displacement of 4.3 million to refugee and un-employed in the hone nation-State ubiquity arisen makes for not “reconstruction” as need, but so much more as psychological repatriations, and social-Amenities of stress-Disorder for them. My humble opinion is there was not enough “emotive-Fidelity of compassionate-Anger” in public—let alone the accruals in arguments of WTO past protests in Seattle 1999 and 2000. Now, PTSD for returning veterans of national-Guard illegally doing duty! How does that faire when one knows wholeheartedly that the 140,000 mercenaries and private-Contractors get a heftier “fee” and beyond medical was the hapless stance of technocracy against “expostulating disregard of information on and about NSDU-238!.
Why not a comparison. But, then, the BAILoUT, and then tax-Monies and the surfeit of giveaways while the sub-Prime could not prime a pump, let alone a monetary-System predicated upon “elitist-Tenditiousness”? The $13 billion in cash flown to Baghdad in a 737 aero-Jet fully loaded w palletized shrink-Wrap hundred-dollar bills, whatever happened to the lack of accounts for accountability sake being reported, as these trials ensume the consciousness in yet another paradigm so exonerable that “cIAS torture-Rendition” can consume–and consort w excesses of expense-Accounts for “officers” why not some assemblance toward “less-Anarchy” can continue? The 2003 (fall) for payoffs to bring Sunni’s into arms disagreements w Shiite, well that was a durned crutch. Yet that crutch did not have healthcare backup, but for sure the losses had “insurance” backups for returning soldiers to even continue to be tested, as they the medical-Professionals in the military were NOTR ALLOWED to test both before and after (air-flight?) physical/medical indignancies! “R”
“…officials say that several criminal cases over the past few years point to widespread corruption in the operation the men helped to run. As part of the inquiry, the authorities are taking a fresh look at information given to them by Dale C. Stoffel, an American arms dealer and contractor who was killed in Iraq in late 2004…Before he was shot on a road north of Baghdad…according to government documents obtained by The New York Times and interviews with officials and Mr. Stoffel’s lawyer, John H. Quinn Jr. There is no evidence that his death was related to his allegations of corruption.
Prosecutors have won 35 convictions on cases related to reconstruction in Iraq, yet most of them involved private contractors or midlevel officials. The current inquiry is aiming at higher-level officials, according to investigators involved in the case, and is also trying to determine if there are connections between those officials and figures in the other cases. Although Colonel Bell and Colonel Hirtle were military officers, they worked in a civilian contracting office.
These long-running investigations continue to mature and expand, embracing a wider array of potential suspects,” a federal investigator said.
The reconstruction effort, intended to improve services and convince Iraqis of American good will, largely managed to do neither. The wider investigation raises the question of whether American corruption was a primary factor in damaging an effort whose failures have been ascribed to poor planning and unforeseen violence.”

9] That the “federal-Reserve act of 1913” has never passed should be of primary appeal to making another correct analysis of credit-Banking, mortgage-Banking, as the monetary-System really should have been challenged in FDR’s time—unjustly to the populous as Billy Clinton did not challenge gHW Bush’s massacre of the “march of Death: retreating army w 33,30 civilians en tow” One should say that Oligarch Ohh-bom-bah-bin-dingy has given Geithner too much slack, because the total-Whole has been awaited by professionals, moreso than business, or especially because sinecure, coRpoRatism, was not “business”?” Did one-Party ‘apologists’ help get Mr bin Dingy elected, or was that strictly third-Party sole-Supporters bought “off”? The housing purchases may always be a struggle, but at least the military is not confiding that this should be their need.
How sickening to have had 26-Years of wars sentience, and no inflationary pattern because interest-Rates were always helping corporations cushion there manufacturing while that industrial morass left the nation and took “human-Enterprise” w those dollars, not leaving, of course, a savings but a “credit-Line” is morosely an attachment bigger than the crisis. That the crisis is in the monetary-System not the BAILoUT system, because that’s a disparagement ongoing to continue w what proceeded that keeps milking the economy’s “savings”! Thinking does help produce the answers of derivatives-Trade, insider funds from corrupt over-Doings in put-Options days before “9-slash-11” buildings were implosions of explosions: galore, and no criminals yet “frickin-Frackin’” arrested? How dare you, buttholds? “R”
“Nationalization — call it “receivership”… determine which banks are insolvent… the only way to save it is to nationalize it… As free-market economists teaching at a business school in the heart of the world’s financial capital, we feel downright blasphemous proposing an all-out government takeover of the banking system. But the U.S. financial system has reached such a dangerous tipping point that little choice remains. And while Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s recent plan to save it has many of the right elements, it’s basically too late.
The subprime mortgage mess alone does not force our hand; the $1.2 trillion it involves is just the beginning of the problem. Another $7 trillion — including commercial real estate loans, consumer credit-card debt and high-yield bonds and leveraged loans — is at risk of losing much of its value. Then there are trillions more in high-grade corporate bonds and loans and jumbo prime mortgages, whose worth will also drop precipitously as the recession deepens and more firms and households default on their loans and mortgages.”
“…if you think that $2 trillion is high, consider our latest estimates at the financial Web site RGE Monitor: They suggest that total losses on loans made by U.S. banks and the fall in the market value of the assets they are holding will reach about $3.6 trillion. The U.S. banking sector is exposed to half that figure, or $1.8 trillion. Even with the original federal bailout funds from last fall, the capital backing the banks’ assets was only $1.4 trillion, leaving the U.S. banking system about $400 billion in the hole.
Two important parts of Geithner’s plan are “stress testing” banks by poring over their books to separate viable institutions from bankrupt ones and establishing an investment fund with private and public money to purchase bad assets. These are necessary steps toward a healthy financial sector.
But unfortunately, the plan won’t solve our financial woes, because it assumes that the system is solvent. If implemented fairly for current taxpayers (i.e., no more freebies in the form of under-priced equity, preferred shares, loan guarantees or insurance on assets), it will just confirm how bad things really are.
Nationalization is the only option that would permit us to solve the problem of toxic assets in an orderly fashion and finally allow lending to resume. Of course, the economy would still stink, but the death spiral we are in would end.”

10] Hey, have kids; wirk yo’ ass off; make amends for money’s in hands gone, but, to have teens sent to county-Pens to maintain that the “private Prisons” keep building the prison-Industial: system, no way would an adolescent-Parent want to do that? Weld, not, grind-First, then prep again, like what-Ski! The judges conspire w management of hire corporate-Disunity credos and make magic! More like a day-Dream w NSDU-238 oozing from nostrils, as one awakens in a stupor of “what the heck, at least I don’t know where the Judge’s at, too”? That tender age of youth dispossessed is becoming of the g-Enron war’s long, we do not doubt, but reading g-Enron’s lips, that’s sick. Just to watch his lips hurt as transitions were never meant to transmit into change, unless “plutocratic-Ascendancy” rules, first and elitists, foremost appeared as a prosaic to no second thoughts, no debates, one-Strike you win wasn’t quite ‘autocracy-Dictatorship take-over: control solicited! There was the judge’s training that just naturally slipped from the grasp of, “laws”. They may have oNLY been influenced by gravity instead of coRpoRate-Greed. AND, of course, at least they did not cop-Out from the monetary-System, too! “R”
“The answers became a bit clearer on Thursday as the judge, Mark A. Ciavarella Jr., and a colleague, Michael T. Conahan, appeared in federal court in Scranton, Pa., to plead guilty to wire fraud and income tax fraud for taking more than $2.6 million in kickbacks to send teenagers to two privately run youth detention centers run by PA Child Care and a sister company, Western PA Child Care.
While prosecutors say that Judge Conahan, 56, secured contracts for the two centers to house juvenile offenders, Judge Ciavarella, 58, was the one who carried out the sentencing to keep the centers filled.
“In my entire career, I’ve never heard of anything remotely approaching this,” said Senior Judge Arthur E. Grim, who was appointed by the State Supreme Court this week to determine what should be done with the estimated 5,000 juveniles who have been sentenced by Judge Ciavarella since the scheme started in 2003. Many of them were first-time offenders and some remain in detention.
The case has shocked Luzerne County, an area in northeastern Pennsylvania that has been battered by a loss of industrial jobs and the closing of most of its anthracite coal mines.”

11] Wars are so much fun, that many want to go overseas and join in the illegal national-Guard “protection-Society”. One factor is that killing people “over-There” keeps the bases, all 737 overseas, where they can pollute and not have to have soldiers rely upon being human, like in open-their-Hearts to the EPA—at home in the pat-Act, territory—or was that once-Waz: republic! The neo-Cons do not have to abdicate the elitists rulers, but many are lousy at justifying “positive-Adventure” in law-Making amenities of providing a FuTuRE. Now that the manufacturing “base of production” has been sent abroad, we cannot be glad that they made and economy-Shrink into another rightwing backlash endeavor. Paulson was wrong but Nancy was not knowing how wrong he was-going-to-Be.
Gimme dysfunction and I’d be a proletariat-Congressman. Ms. Pelsoi does not listen to the law of abiding by “the rule of law” and she’ hardly gotten into the dance of movin’ on. But this craftie-Crap of dEMs allowing wars to go along as the economy-Ruins is castigated to the radinuclides “wastebins: unseen” is justice w.o. parody? Go have some parody to parity those needs of what has transpired because the speaker went “lameo’d” the whole remedial discourse by not discoursing. Thus, what is well said! Do you allow oNLY Mr. Ralph Nader to speak for INdependents/socialists/ third-Party, or do you want to be entertained as a cog w more-than-a-few-major-Glitches, now expectant by Foxy tailed news–if oNLY to fill in the remedial-Spite places of antiquity? What about suppression of the news from issues of other political-Parties not parody? “R”
“Constitution….But Congress does not act as if it [the anti-Nuclearist most] is the most powerful branch. It [NSDU-238 & thermo-Nuclears are soooo good for NPP’s pollutions and meltdowns] routinely abdicates its constitutional responsibilities-the declaration of war authority and the plenary authority to investigate and require access to information in the executive branch.
Even after the Democrats took control of the Congress in January 2007, George W. Bush again and again got his way including a rubber stamp for the huge Iraq and Afghanistan war budgets outside of the normal appropriations processes.
Efforts by Senator Russ Feingold and Cong. John Conyers to move a modest censure resolution of Bush and Cheney for their many constitutional and statutory violations were aggressively rejected by their leaders-Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid. In January 2007, Pelosi and Reid two took impeachment off the table allowing the most chronically impeachable presidency in our history to continue undisturbed.
…their majority status in 2007 to 2009 and a Democratic President in the White House, the Congressional Democrats are not moving swiftly to repeal the ban on Uncle Sam negotiating drug prices from volume discounts under the drug benefit law. They are not moving to amend the Patriot Act, regain control of warrantless surveillance, strengthen the corporate criminal laws and enforcement budgets. Congress is not even pushing to require taxing Hedge Fund manager’s income as ordinary income not as capital gains.
I cite these policies because they are policies much favored by many Democratic lawmakers. But in practice lawmakers duck and duck and duck from translating their beliefs into contentious action vis-à-vis the lobbyists and their captive legislators.
Senator Chris Dodd and the vast majority of the American people want to do something about credit card company abuses and gouges. But he is surrounded not just by the Republicans on the Senate Banking Committees but high-ranking Democrats beholden to the financial goliaths who, are demanding and receiving hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer bailouts.
There is word from the politicians that consideration of health care insurance-apart from a quickly enacted expansion of some coverage for more poor children-will be put off for a year. The trade unions’ top priority to enact labor law reforms, supported by Obama during his presidential campaign, are being held back by the Democrats.
There is even doubt whether the District of Columbia will get a voting Representative in the House when push comes to shove in the Senate.”

We need those immoral digressions so that the empire can aver not needing to survive a “thousand-Years” w only one voice saying “ohh, weld, that’s the new-Rome for ya”!
The accident, first one @ Chernobyl had happened about four-to-six years before “the Ecology group” got to the plateau of bricks ensemble the trail-Winding that led to the top of number two, already top-Blown in 1980! There was a definite paradox that one-to-three had been exposed: how many had died!

“The nuclear power industry is back to where it always goes when it wants to build new reactors—the taxpayer trough…Time after time over the past half-century, the atomic energy industry has gone to the government to demand massive amounts of money. The most recent public gouging came during the Great Deregulation Scam of 1999-2001. As Enron and its cronies contrived phony energy shortages and nearly bankrupted California, the atomic pushers went before America’s state legislatures and asked for a massive bailout. They complained that with the coming age of deregulation (about two dozen states deregulated their electricity businesses) nuclear power plants were too expensive, inefficient and obsolete to compete in the coming green age.
So they demanded—and got—more than $100 billion in “stranded cost” payouts. These were the ultimate admission that atomic power simply could not make it in the marketplace. As deregulation failed throughout the US, what Forbes Magazine labeled “the largest managerial disaster in business history” stayed alive as America’s ultimate welfare cheat.
Now the industry is back for more. After complaining about its old reactors’ lousy economic performance, it now argues that the new ones will be magically transformed, and that billions more should be spent building them.”
