Documentary – Fallujah, a Lost Generation?

Secrets of a dirty war

RT – 16.07.2012

In 2004, Fallujah in Iraq became the theater of a major showdown between the American soldiers and the Iraqi insurgents. But even though the sounds of this harsh battle have died down a long time ago the consequences are only showing now. And they are of the toxic kind. Babies are born with malformations, kids are affected with leukemia and cancer has multiplied tenfold. The situation reminds the one of 1945 post atomic Hiroshima.

A sharp increase in birth defects in the Iraqi city of Fallujah could be linked to sophisticated weaponry used by U.S. troops in 2004, it has been revealed.

There has been a ‘massive unprecedented number’ of heart defects and an increase in the number of central nervous system defects in newborns, Fallujah doctors have told British-based Iraqi researcher Malik Hamdan.

‘I’ve seen footage of babies born with an eye in the middle of the forehead, the nose on the forehead,’ Hamdan claims.

Toxic munitions cause of baby deaths and deformities in Fallujah

In September this year, say campaigners, 170 children were born at Fallujah General Hospital, 24 per cent of whom died within seven days. Three-quarters of these exhibited deformities, including “children born with two heads, no heads, a single eye in their foreheads, or missing limbs”. The comparable data for August 2002 — before the invasion — records 530 births, of whom six died and only one of whom was deformed.

The data — contained in a letter sent by a group of British and Iraqi doctors and campaigners to the United Nations last month — presaged claims made in a report in The Guardian yesterday that there has been a sharp rise in birth defects in the city. The paper quoted Fallujah General’s director and senior specialist, Dr Ayman Qais, as saying: “We are seeing a very significant increase in central nervous system anomalies… There is also a very marked increase in the number of cases of brain tumours.” Earlier this year Sky News reported a Fallujah grave-digger saying that, of the four or five new-born babies he buries every day, most have deformities.

The campaigners’ letter to the UN calls for an independent investigation to be set up, “the cleaning up of toxic materials used by the occupying forces, including depleted uranium and white phosphorus”, and an inquiry launched to discover if any war crimes have been committed.
