Resign, Mr. Bush -- Resign!

August 6th, 2007

Dear Mr. President,

Today I received a phone call from Charley Clark, 80 years old, a
Nagasaki veteran, and now the president of Irradiated Veterans of
America. He has had ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY-ONE CANCERS removed from his
face, He's lost one eye, and his two daughters have genetic
defects. He's paying a direct price for America's use of nuclear
weapons. His division (2nd Marine) was the FIRST Marine division
into Nagasaki after The Bomb. He arrived there 45 days after Fat Man
was dropped. He is a victim of the world's first nuclear war.

AND it's not like he hadn't ALREADY paid a high price to defend
America. He was already a hardened combat veteran when he went into
Nagasaki -- like all the Marines who went there. Good men who could
be trusted. He arrived at first light on 23 September, 1945.

Access was via a 5 mile river bed. About 4 miles out from the city,
the stench of the 70,000 dead -- mostly women and children -- was so
powerful the Marines used their shirtsleeves to try to mask it. The
stench was far worse than anything they had smelled on Iwo Jima or
Saipan. More than 60 years later it still caws at his throat, just
thinking about it.

Our Marines were told exactly NOTHING about radiation before going
into Nagasaki, and nothing while they were there, either. They spent
the time clearing radioactive debris and trying to help the local
populace rebuild the city. And wiping dust from their faces. And
drinking from the local, contaminated, radioactive water-source,
which was delivering "60 rads" along with the water. Charley Clark
stayed in Nagasaki until 18 December, 1945 -- nearly three months.

The pimples that became carcinomas started much later. "I have to
get four stitches removed tomorrow" he told me, "and four more put in
somewhere else on my face at the same time. It never stops." Ouch,
Mr. President!

But according to the government, Charley Clark's suffering could NOT
have been caused by being stationed in Nagasaki soon after the first
-- and last -- plutonium bomb was ever used on a human population
center. The radiation would have subsided to nothing serious in 45
days, according to the government.

A 20 kiloton fission bomb produces several pounds of deadly
radioactive fission products. Roughly 15% would be Strontium-90,
with a half-life of 28.8 years, and an even larger percentage would
be Cesium-137, with a half-life of 30.2 years (which, by the way,
decays into Barium-137, half-life about 156 seconds (and a gamma emitter)).

Additionally, Fat Man only had an efficiency of about 14%, so there
would have been lots of radioactive plutonium and uranium isotopes
around, too (and still are).

45 days was NOT enough! 1000 years is not enough! EVERYONE is a
victim, to some extent, of Nagasaki. All of humanity suffers the
pangs of radioactive decay within our bodies every day -- what a way
to remember Nagasaki! But how can you deny proper compensation to
our own soldiers?

Or to ANYONE who has been unjustly harmed by war? Regarding the
correspondence shown below, I ask that you invite Hisham Ubraheem,
nine years old, with tetraplegia, to testify to Congress about the
need for proper infrastructure in Iraq. The rebuilding MUST start
immediately -- by Iraqis, for Iraqis! I believe the war will be over
as soon as we withdraw. If you are looking for a name for our
maneuver, call it, "reassessing the cost-effectiveness of agitating a
dragon." You make many pronouncements about who is fighting a
civilized war. But that's all they are -- pronouncements. War is
uncivilized. You coerced a few countries to join you, including one
led at the time by your lapdog Blair, but you NEVER had true global
support for "Shock and Awe" and its aftermath. (Imagine! The British
PM YOUR lapdog! How low has society fallen when THAT can happen?!?)

Mr. Bush, you have managed to prove that democracy doesn't work in
America. You and the Congress must start doing what the people
want: Make peace, not war. Rebuild our infrastructure. Turn to
clean, renewable energy (which does NOT include nuclear
energy). Assure FREE education for ALL. Offer universal health
care. End poverty. Clean the environment. Tell us no more lies.

All this was within your power to give America and the world, but in
all cases, you gave us LESS, not MORE. Except the lies -- you gave
us more of those.

On a personal basis, you violated my civil rights AND my sensibilities.

Hisham's father would like: "To bring Hisham to speak in front of
Congress so that they will see, hear, and feel the real tragedy of
the war." Please invite him! Let the scientists who claimed
"655,000 dead in Iraq" come defend their numbers in Congress, so our
representatives and the American people can understand that Hisham is
but one of millions.

Mr. Bush, I cannot think of a rule of decency you and / or Dick
Cheney have not violated, including failure to recognize, let alone
atone or apologize for, your mistakes.

So PLEASE change your ways. Don't be fooled by what is said by those
who love you unflinchingly, and trust you no matter what. YOU are
part -- a large part -- of a cult, an "evil empire" to use
Reagan-speak, the likes of which the world has never seen. You have
condemned to death, through nuclear pollution, through war, and
through the aftermath of war, more people than Hitler, more than
Stalin, and more than Mao, combined. Full radioactive steam ahead
for the nuclear industry will kill millions. India has been
guaranteed meltdowns recently, using American corporations-supplied
nuclear fuel and equipment. We should have -- and could have -- sold
them wind turbines, instead.

Mr. Bush, stop killing MY family. We are all related, or don't you
believe in Adam and Eve OR evolution? Either way, we are ALL
related. So stop killing MY FAMILY.

Your actions are SUICIDAL, too, because one morning, you will wake up
and hate yourself, if you do not change your ways. What Randall
"Duke" Cunningham did to cause his actions on November 25th, 2005 in
San Marcos, California wasn't half as bad as what you are doing, and
sooner or later, the walls WILL crumble around you, and you WILL
realize that justice WILL prevail. For Hisham, 9, AND for Charley, 80.

(Re:) Re: Unsolicited suggested grammatical corrections for your web site

August 5th, 2007

Dear Dr. Ibraheem,

Thank you again for your letter (shown below). It is an honor to be
able to communicate with you.

Regarding your story about the ultimate grief, I ask: Does not the
child suffer more even than the mother, even if for less time? The
child, who thought he was safe in his mother's arms, until the pain
of death told him different, coming before even experiencing 99.99%
of the joy of life. The child cannot express his pain, and the
mother can, and adults can no longer think like children, but we can
think like other adults (and men think they can think like women), so
it is easier to identify with the mother's grief, than the child's.

When my parents (divorced ~30 years at the time and now both dead)
buried my older brother more than a decade ago, I heard it said that
the grief of a parent burying a child is, indeed, the greatest
grief. (My brother died in his 30s of complications from leukemia, a
disease which became rampant only recently in history, perhaps
because of the nuclear age's damage to our cells.)

The grief of the parents is horrific, but I wish to side with the
child: Surely it hurts the child to see the grief THEY are causing
their parents! It must grieve Hisham to know he is causing YOU
tremendous grief! The greatest injustice is what this war is doing
to Iraqi children. Mr. Bush and his "neocons" have no idea how many
Hishams there are. That is as close to not caring about an
individual as I can imagine -- to not even count them!

Mr. Bush's army is fighting for a principle, but I'm not sure WHAT
principle. I've talked to numerous soldiers. They actually want to
help Iraq. (The ones I've talked to lately don't think they can.)

The American soldier always had ONE principle he could be sure he
(usually a he, not a she) was fighting for -- and that was the
principle of upholding the rules of war! The code book! It said, in
essence, "If you follow these rules, then later on, humanity, for the
most part, will not detest you for what you are doing now, regardless
of which side ends up being considered 'right.' You are a
soldier." Among many things, the "code book" prohibits the torture
of prisoners, the murder of surrendering troops, and the wholesale
killing of civilians (it seems that war these days always happens
amongst civilian populations, and thus, by definition, war IS the
approved killing of at least SOME civilians. So it seems, that it is
only a matter of knowing when to stop.)

This military rule book is very, very important. Every soldier is
supposed to have read it and is supposed to adhere to it
utterly. They cannot obey illegal commands. They cannot poison the
land. They cannot use poison gas.

And yet, it comes to pass, that violating the rules of war becomes
the way of war! Depleted Uranium, as I mentioned before, produces
utterly illegal poison gas and poisons the land. We have heard about
illegal and widespread coercion of prisoners. On all sides, of course.

How do these violations occur? The story of the use of Depleted
Uranium is this: If you admit that low level radiation is dangerous,
then ALL low-level radiation is dangerous. Not just DU but emissions
from nuclear power plants, and even medical x-rays are a much greater
risk than once thought. The releases from Chernobyl, also, are more
catastrophic than the pro-nuclear industry assumes -- they still say
only about 28 people died because of Chernobyl -- the "heroes" of the
fire department and so forth, who fought to save the reactor while
absorbing hundreds of rems.

If they admitted any of this, a trillion-dollar industry -- the
ENTIRE nuclear power industry -- would be RUINED!

They much prefer pretending that Depleted Uranium is "safe." Then,
the nuclear industry can give their Uranium-238 waste to the military
for use as bullets, bombs, shells, and armor! And they don't care if
some U-235 and Pu-239 and so on are mixed in!

All this happens because the truth about the dangers of so-called
"low-level radiation" cannot be faced in ANY of 40+ countries, which
now have nuclear weapons and / or nuclear power plants, which all
have people making money from the nuclear industry.

One lie leads to another lie, which leads to another. When does war
become palatable for one society? When it is cost-effective? When
it is "right"? How can "right" be defined when children by the
thousands are dying and being maimed, good people like Hisham?

George Bush's Pentagon refuses to count the Iraqi dead. Mr. Bush had
NOT assured the American public that 655,000 Iraqi civilian dead is
not too high a number. But last year a scientific study estimated
the number that high, and just as likely to be higher as lower. And
it has probably grown by tens of thousands since then! But instead
of assuring the American public that this war is WORTH 655,000 of
your citizens dead, and 3,500 of our own, he says the report is not
credible! But the study IS credible, and probably even
"conservative" in its estimate.

I suspect that the delay that you write about will, these days, only
cause the typical American citizen to say, "but I bet it's like that
at Walter Reed Medical Hospital for our own veterans, after what I've
been hearing about paint coming off the ceilings, and rats, and
filth, and overcrowding and -- yes -- delays!"

And besides, they might add, OUR bridges are falling down,
too. Never mind that yours fall down because we bombed them, and
ours are falling down through neglect, and our veteran's hospitals
are crumbling because of neglect, not war-time conditions not of our making.

Had we not gone to war, all our bridges, and all our dams, could have
all been fixed. And all our rail lines could have been electrified
AND repaired. And all our veterans' hospitals could have been
refurbished and rebuilt, too.

All that, just with the money we lost (spent) fighting "an army of
one" (Saddam). A personal grievance between George Bush and Saddam
Hussein resulted in perhaps a million dead, and millions more like Hisham.

Of course, had we not gone to war, we would NOT have used the money
to make America better. We would have bought more Hummers,
instead. But we COULD HAVE done all those things. And all our
bridges and all yours would now BOTH be intact. And your son would
be playing with his toys, instead of just looking at them.

If George Bush does not care about me -- a U. S. citizen -- and he
does not care about 655,000 Iraqi dead (as of the time of the
report), and he does not care about a quarter of a million U.S.
soldiers who will ALL have Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, then I
don't think he will care about Hisham. But I will ask him to bring
Hisham to Congress anyway, to testify about the delays that Iraqis
are incurring when trying to get medical care after errant bombs land
among children.
