Severely disabled and abandoned at birth, 124 children live at the Ba Vi Orphanage and Elderly home near Hanoi, Vietnam. They are believed to be 3rd generation Agent Orange(a defoliant used by the US military during the Vietnam War) victims, but nothing is known about their family history and the center lacks the resources to conduct medical tests to prove such a link.

For the 124 children there is one doctor, two nurses, and six caretakers. Eighty percent of the children are mentally disabled. The center receives national funding of $15 USD for every child per month.

Most of the children live a life without recreation, education, or physical therapy and spend the majority of their day in wooden chairs or in mass beds. Some of the children more prone to wandering off at night or harming the other children are kept in locked iron cages overnight and during afternoon naps. The majority of the children will live their entire lives at the center.
Currently the Vietnam Victims of Agent Orange Association is campaigning against US Chemical Companies involved in producing the dioxin during the Vietnam War seeking compensation for all its victims.

Paris: Protest against UN-NATO war in Libya

Protest against NATO-war in Libya… Yesterday there was a protest against the NATO-war (with an UN-mandate) in Libya.

‘France: 35% of Libyan oil – rebels accepted in exchange for their unconditional support against the regime of Gaddafi.’ – Did Libyan rebels have secret oil deals with France?

‎”Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed…. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.”  (Dwight David Eisenhower, April 16, 1953)

Three days after an international military coalition intervened in Libya, the cost to U.S. taxpayers has reached the hundreds of millions of dollars and continues to climb. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/libya-military-intervention-costs-us-taxpayers-millions-dollars/story?id=13193525

Nearly 20 percent of America’s children–and 13 percent of all Americans–live in poverty. http://www.brookings.edu/topics/u-s-poverty.aspx

Bombings of Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan: Israel and Germany

The drones (unmanned aircraft) used by NATO for bombing Afghanistani, Pakistani and Libyan civilians are designed by Israel. The Israelis are denied entry into Afghanistan, but nevertheless, the Israeli drones provide ‘security’ for the coalition in Afghanistan. Israeli drones are used by Canada, France, Australia and Germany in Afghanistan. Today, Israeli specialists are on the air base at Ein Shemer for training the flight of “Herons” repainted in the colors of Germany. Most of Israeli military products are standard NATO-compatible.

Italy pays 30 per cent of the war against Libya

Even though Italy, omd colonizer of Libya, entered the war providing only ‘limited military and logistical support’, it now leads 30 per cent of the war against Libya, on par with France and Great Britain. According to Italy’s Interior Ministry, the operation has already cost 1 billion Euros (US$ 1.3 billion).

Italy will thus be the next NATO-member that needs money. And the Italian taxpayer will pay it back by extra-high taxes and by privatisations. The Italian social network (healthcare, social welfare,) is slowly destroyed and the Italian State has already a big problem with the refugees coming from Africa.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said now that he had ‘opposed the decision by western powers led by France and Britain to go to war in Libya’ and that ‘he had been forced’. He knows that he and his government are responsible for the economical and financial crisis in Italy.

NATO war crimes with an UN-mandate: 5.000 uranium bombs

NATO is actually destroying Libya and kills Libyan civilians with an UN-mandate.

There were more than 5.000 bombings now and all the bombs contained Depleted Uranium (DU).

The UN knows the dangers of Depleted Uranium.  In February 2000, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), said that the pollution with Depleted Uranium detected at four environmental hot spots in Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro, was serious and posed a threat to human health.  UNEP started projects about the needs for humanitarian assistance and an environmental clean-up in Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro.
While UNEP was called a ‘reference in the scientific community regarding the impacts of DU when used in a conflict situation’, UN allows the further destruction of Libya with uranium bombs.

Cities in Iraq where Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons were heavily used, such as Basra, Samara, Baghdad, Mosul and probably especially Fallujah, which was virtually leveled in a November 2004 Marine assault, are showing high rates of birth defects, many of which, along with unusually high rates of leukemia, medical experts say are emblematic of fetal radiation damage.

A University of Michigan peer-reviewed study of births in Fallujah (Iraq) published in December 2010 found that of 547 births in Fallujah General Hospital in May of 2010, six years after the all-out US assault on that city of 300,000, in which DU weapons were reportedly used widely, 15% of babies had birth defects–a rate more than five times higher than the global average of 2-3%.
