Last week a blue whale washed up on a SoCal beach. 140 tons. Turns
out its back was broken -- multiple bones were broken and it had a
huge bruise on its back.
No ship is taking credit for the "kill," but we have a lot of Navy
ships around here. They are fast and silent and their sailors tell
no tales (except tall ones).
Today is the last day to submit a statement regarding the U.S. Navy's
newest proposal for their continued poisoning of the Pacific
Ocean. Below is the statement I submitted.
How to submit a statement:
Statements can be emailed to: email@example.com
They can also be posted online to:

To Whom It May Concern, US Government:
I just have NO IDEA who might have written the statement shown below,
but I wish to submit it as my opposition statement to the proposed
poisoning of nearly one quarter million square miles (unfenced) of
the Pacific Ocean by the United States Navy.

Death is upon us. A rogue army is maneuvering to destroy our
planet. Its name is Navy.
Step by step by step over the past decade, the military has asked for
-- and received --enormous exemptions from caring for
humanity. Environmental laws everyone else must obey -- laws which
save lives -- mean nothing to them. No longer are they required to
obey their civilian leaders. No longer are they required to atone
for sins they commit. No longer are they culpable for YOUR death.
You, who they WERE charged to protect.
You, who WERE to be their masters.
You, who FUNDS them.
Citizens of the United States: Rise up! Rise up against your
oppressors! Rise up against the randomization of death! Rise up
against the destruction of YOUR HOMELAND!
Rise up against the U.S. Navy!
A decade ago, the United States military was granted an exemption
from environmental laws. The U.S. Navy is the most egregious -- and
dirty -- of all militaries in history. They kill their own sailors,
with radiation, with chemicals used in warfare, with chemicals used
to keep their ships "ship-shape."
My friends are dying. Your friends are dying. You and I are dying
because we cannot -- no, because we WILL NOT -- rein in these cutthroats.
The Navy's most recent crime involves directly poisoning nearly a
quarter of a million square miles of "open ocean" -- where our fish
grow, where our whales and dolphins frolic, where earth's balancing
life develops. No fence will keep the poisons in the designated area.
They will use radiation weapons, Directed Energy Laser Weapons,
pressure (concussive and / or vacuum (over- / under-pressure) killing
devices, and nearly 150 other kinds of "toys."
These are the same guys who brought you Bikini, Eniwetok, and
Rongelap. All radiation-poisoned islands.
The same guys who pollute Vieques, Puerto Rico with Depleted Uranium
-- as well as Okinawa and various sites on the U.S. mainland. And
Iraq. And Kosovo. And Afghanistan. And tomorrow? Iran.
The same guys who lie about how many of their own -- their submarine
sailors -- are dying of brain tumors as their payment for service
aboard nuclear submarines.
Hail the U.S. Navy! Professional killers! Professional
planet-destroyers! Professional liars! Professionals in every way.
Damn the torpedos. Damn the missiles. Damn the truth. Damn the
citizens they claim to protect. Damn us all.
Damn the U.S. Navy: Killers of U. S. citizens. Killers of the
planet. Killers of us all.
