When `right' isn't quite right
by Pauline Rigby, Green Left Weekly, January 14, 2004.
     "...Weapons of mass destruction were never found in Iraq, yet the country is
today contaminated forever, because weapons of mass destruction have been
used against it. Thousands of tonnes of radioactive waste were dumped on Iraq
during Gulf Wars I and II and during the intervening years when bombing continued
through the use of depleted uranium (DU) ammunition.
     "DU is a waste product of the process that produces enriched uranium for use in
nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants. Much like natural uranium, it is both toxic
and radioactive. This radioactive waste - with a half-life of 4.5 billion years - has
been incorporated into missiles and bombs by the United States. The weapons burn
and oxidise into microscopic particles that are ingested and inhaled, irradiating the
victim from the inside...
     "...Cancer rates are up in the local population and also among the United Nations
peacekeepers from many countries who were sent in at the close of hostilities.
Spanish and Italian peacekeepers have died of leukaemia and Portugal withdrew
its personnel to stop any more becoming "radioactive meat"..."

The Recall Link to Camejo for CA Governor web site
By Peter Miguel Camejo, October 14, 2003
  The California recall and election of 2003 may be regarded as a dress rehearsal for the US presidential election in 2004. Camejo's commentary includes discussion of strategy and tactics employed by the Green Party and the Democrats. An excellent analysis of the recall and election campaign, in my opinion.  The Recall Link to text at a Mann for School Board web page.

US Labor Against War: Defeat Bush at any Cost?
Labor Must Lead the Antiwar Movement, Break with the Democratic Party.
US Labor Against War should remain an ad hoc labor-oriented antiwar committee that calls for the, immediate, unconditional and complete withdrawal of US forces from Iraq and the Persian Gulf.  Union bodies and leaders who no longer oppose the US occupation of Iraq should not be invited to join USLAW and to serve on USLAW leadership bodies.
