Chumps R Us Club:
Experts claim that Americans are being continually Chumped by the massive dissemination of Big Government Lies dispensed by the Controlled major Mass Media (CMMM).
But how can this be shown to be true?
How can we be certain that we are being chumped by the Powers That be (PTB) that run the Secret Shadow Government *(SSG) and their Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM)?
All we have to do is take a quick inventory on the current situation Americans find themselves in and the continuing Big Lies that the CMMM keep parroting over the years as if they were undisputed, accepted truth.
To easily illustrate this and prove the point, the following questions must be asked and answered:
>Why do we allow ourselves to be treated as dumbed-down Chumps and believe the constant stream of Big Government Lies and false narratives that are constantly fed us through the CMMM when they can be easily shown to be blatantly false? Is this because we have a deep social and emotional needs to believe these Big Government Lies?
>Do we have a deep social and emotional need to view Big Government and the CMMM as a benevolent Parent Figure/ Has this been conditioned by Hollywoodism and engineered societal expectations over the last 50 years through the CMMM?
>How can we show conclusively that everything the USG dispenses through the Major Mass Media is controlled lies and propaganda?
>What will it take for the average American to wake up and snap out of the Mind-Kontrol perpetrated upon them by the CMMM?
>What will it take for Americans to completely withdraw consent from this Joint Crime Cabal (JCC) comprised of the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) and the International Zionist Crime Syndicate (IZCS), that uses several select Top Policy-Makers to run everything inside America?
Here is a quick inventory of how we as Americans are all being Chumped by the Joint Crime Cabal (JCC) which masquerades as the visible USG but controls what Americans believe and think they know through their propaganda dispenser the CMMM.
The top 21 reason Most average Americans are Chumps and members of the “Chumps R Us” Club:
1. Fluoride in the public water, a known toxic byproduct of the aluminum, gypsum and uranium processing industries. Recent Harvard study has shown it to lower IQ in children significantly, an average of 8 or more IQ points. In addition Fluoride was added to the water in German Work Camps and Russian Gulags. It was found that is drastically reduced rebellious thinking and escape attempts. It is undoubtedly added to the public water systems as a means of Mind-Kontrol. But it is also a proven carcinogen in children raising rates of bone cancer significantly. In no other case is a toxic substance once used as rat poison allowed to be added to the public drinking water with no prescription or any real does control. It is very strange that the FDA ignores all this. Somebody has been greased or adversely influenced it certainly seems.
2. Thimerisol (ethyl mercury) and toxic contaminants (like SV-40 Monkey Virus, a known cause of soft tissue cancers), and adjuvants in vaccines which have now been shown to lower IQ in children and cause autism spectrum disorders. This is unnecessary for any vaccine and should have been outlawed long ago by the FDA.
3. American Pertussis Vaccine, part of the DPT. Long known that the kind given in America only can cause serious or deadly damage to any child’s brain. Should have been long ago outlawed by the FDA, as it has been in every other nation.
4. Massive deployment of over 44 vaccinations on the average to kids, when babies through school age. This is known to lower their IQ and cause numerous medical problems as they grow up due to the numerous unnecessary adjuvants and contaminants including squalene, aluminum, anti-freeze, and Thimerisol (Ethyl Mercury, the most neuro-toxic substance known to man) and even more.
5. Monosodium Glutamate allowed by the FDA in numerous foods. This is a flavor enhancer which can make bad food seem okay but is a known toxin. Guess what top banking family is responsible for this.
6. Use of Aspartame, a known substantially toxic excitory neuro-toxin. Initially received very bad reports and was blocked by the FDA only to be allowed because of the major political power and connections of Donald Rumsfeld. In some sensitive individuals this has caused seizures and some very serious medical problems, some believe it is carcinogenic too.
7. GMO Foods have been shown conclusively in recent Russian medical research to grow tumors in lab rats and and to be linked to numerous genetic changes and carcinogenic tumors in the animal consuming these gene spliced foods which make their own pesticide. Many foreign nations are rejecting these GMO foods grown in America, but the FDA sees no problem and Monsanto lobbies extensively to prevent adequate labeling laws to declare that GMOs are contained in food products or are GMO.
8. Massive prescribing of SSRIs and other antidepressants and even more seriously toxic neuroleptics in young children who have problems adjusting in school. Many of these issues are societally systemic and also caused by poor nutrition, too much sugar and soda pop and toxic chemical additives consumed in food. In the public schools, problems kids are labelled Hyperactive, dyslexic or autism spectrum and prescribed these dangerous mind-numbing drugs when most of their problems are either vaccine related or caused by family conflicts. This is a huge problem and numerous experts believe that this overuse of dangerous drugs is due to massive marketing and covert mind-kontrol of the prescribing physicians by Big Pharma and lack of adequate oversight by the FDA or various medical and Psychiatric Associations. SSRI’s have been associated with Spy-chiatrists and MK-Ultra style school shootings and anti-depressants and especially the neuroleptics and amphetamine type drugs so often prescribed to young children can have very damaging long term effects. Use of amphetamine type drugs can stunt the bone plate growth in children and cause the growth of extra dendrites in the brain. neuroleptics have been directly linked to the development ot tardive dyskenesis, a permanent very strange tremor.
9. Massive deployment of cell phones, cell phone towers and Wi-Fi with absolutely no adequate research on the psychotronic effects or carcinogenicity, and no protection of young children from their known toxic effects. The toxic effects are now recognized in some European nations who have instituted disability for the 3-6% who are ultra sensitive electro-smog and have set up special sanctuary neighborhoods with very low emf emissions and instituted very strict limits on EMF emissions in highly populated areas. It is now generally recognized that cell phone and Wi-Fi emissions can be carcinogenic and damage nervous systems. Denmark and one province in Canada have removed Wi-Fi from schools and substituted faster fiber optic which emit no harmful brain entraining or irradiating/heating emf.
10. Massive deployment of of the now notorious Smart Meters to indicate electric usage in each home by the minute or less, using strong pulsed beam pulsed beam microwave transmissions which have been shown to be psychotronically toxic to many in European health studies. Denmark and one province in Canada now prohibits use of any Wi-Fi in public schools due to the known toxicity shown in medical experiments to between 3-6% of those exposed. In several countries in Europe Wi-Fi and cell phone tower emissions are closely regulated and limited to protect the populace from known psychotronic and carcinogenic effects.
11. Chemtrails, aka atmospheric aerosol spraying of highly toxic chemicals such as nano-particles of aluminum, barium, strontium, Hemophilus Influenzae, and numerous other toxins, delivered in our skies illegally by covert DOD contract airlines. This has been given numerous false cover stories to the pilots and employees who are involved such as this is protection against global warming which would raise the oceans. These cover stories are complete bunk, the actual top secret reasons are to create massive droughts and famine in targeted areas, poison the plant-life and crops, dispense magnetic-electrical tracer nano-particles to humans which can be flashed and allow travel-tracking.
12. The Phony war on Drugs which was used to provide cover for the CIA trafficking of illegal drugs into American inner cities to raise massive funds for black ops all around the world. These CIA drug financed black ops are necessary to start new perpetual wars for war-profiteers and provide an excuse for the USG to build itself up into a strong Secret Police State needed to oppress the citizens and violate their Constitutional Rights. Obviously this secret war on America’s urban dwellers is part of a NWO World Zionist effort to create massive chaos in American Cities and stress them to the breaking point which is close. Remember the the WZ’s favorite motto is “Order ab Chaos” or a New World Order can be created from the generation of massive chaos and destruction of the existing order.
13. The Militarization of the Police which has transformed the average Police Officer who used to be dedicated to Protecting and Serving the Community, to now oppressing it, tyrannizing it, and treating it like there was a war between the police and the common Citizen. Police Officers have been transformed into agents of the State and a fighting machine deployed against the Citizenry on behalf of Homeland Security, an Israeli occupying force trained by the ADL and set up by Marcus Wolfe, former head of the East German Stasi.
14. So-called Free Trade Agreements (NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT, WTO, NAU, and now the upcoming TPP). As Ross Perot predicted this would be a “Big Sucking Sound” that would export most heavy industry and manufacturing out of America, this eliminating most related future jobs. He has been proved correct in this prediction and the Free Trade Agreements (Treaties) are now reducing America to a third world nation very rapidly. This was a City of London World Zionist ploy to destroy America.
15. The Federal Reserve System, neither a monetary reserve or a bank, but merely a crooked Unconstitutional debt-making system and a franchisee of the City of London Rothschild Zionist private central Banksters. It’s main job is to provide a limitless checkbook to Congress and the USG so they can fund special interest groups and foreign espionage groups and get huge kickbacks, perks and retirement packages. The illegal passage of the Federal Reserve System Act in 1913 right before Christmas with no quorum was a successful major Coup d’ etat against America by the City of London World Zionist private Central Banksters.
This is the head of the World Zionist monster that has hijacked America and has been asset stripping hard earned American property and wealth ever since. Their goal? The complete destruction of America and the eventually mass-murder of most Americans. Why because these are the same families who ran the Bolshevik revolution in Russian in 1917 after murdering the Czar and his family (children included) in cold blood. The Federal Reserve System is nothing but the tip of the spear for the Neo-Bolshevik invasion of America on behalf of the City of London Rothschild Zionist private Central Banksters.
16. Presence of numerous Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens and their Zionist espionage groups such as AIPAC and the like which have bought and now own and control (one way or another including use of sophisticated honey traps and pedophile blackmail ops) almost every single member of Congress. No other foreign based group has ever been allowed to operate with no correction, free to enact high level anti-American espionage inside America.
Why are these agents of foreign espionage against America allowed to operate at will inside America? The answer is because they are the stepchild of the illegal, Unconstitutional Federal Reserve System which directly or indirectly provide the tremendous, unrestricted “Money-Power” that allows AIPAC and the like to buy, bribe, blackmail and control (as necessary) almost every member of the US Congress.
17. The CIA which is a known RICO crime enterprise on behalf of large Wall Street Banks and the Private Federal Reserve. It was started by the OSS men after WW2 in response to the crashed UFO’s and was pretty much run by the Gehlen/Muehler organization brought over from Nazi Germany under operation paperclip.Intel insiders refer to this group behind this current CIA infiltration as the Fourth Reich or the DVD. George Bush1 (aka Scherf) has been considered to be their man inside the USG Secret Shadow Government (SSG).
18. Ronald Reagan was the last duly elected President and all others since and every piece of Legislation signed into law by Congress and these illegitimate President since are completely NULL and VOID.(1)
19. The continued complete abandonment of the US Constitution ad Bill of Rights by the US Congress, Judiciary and the Administration. It is actually quite amazing how creatively our crooked politicians and judiciary argue around the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. They pervert the simple language and meaning of the Constitution and add new strange nonsensical interpretations which justify their criminal actions. As George Bush2 once said, the Constitution is just a GD piece of paper. And that is the way most of our crooked Politicians and USG officials regard it as and operate accordingly.
20. The Creation and deployment of Homeland Security (DHS). The cover story for this was that the 9/11/01 attack on America was known in advance by some Intel agencies inside America but because they had no formal information sharing arrangements nothing was done to stop it. It was argued publicly that the creation of DHS would consolidate all American Intel, Alphabets and Police function under one master control making sure that this never happened again.
21. The biggest abuse of Americans ever devised is comprised of six international Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) News Corporations which are owned and controlled by World Zionist entities to deploy manufactured, notably false, controlled news to gullible Americans which is best described as USG propaganda.
Thus it is realistic and accurate to describe and label these six corporations which work together in lock step to dispense pre-arranged, SSG vetted stories in unison as the Controlled Major Mass media (CMMM). Here are some prime examples of the Big Lies the CMMM has been parrotting to “We the People” for many years even though it has been shown conclusively that they are completely false and designed to protect the Joint Crime cabal which rules America on behalf of the SSG and the Rothschild private Zionist City of London Banksters.
Here are the BIG Lie Stories the CMMM has kept churning out like the little Zionist puppets they are. Yes, the CMMM is owned and controlled by World Zionist connected and financed entities which represent the City of London Banksters in lockstep.
These CMMM dispensed narratives are so easily debunked and so notably false, their continued dissemination and rote acceptance by the talking heads that dispense them is nothing short of what is best described as the “King’s new Clothes” parable and truly the behavior of soulless presstitutes.
a. The JFK Assassination–”Oswald was a Lone Nut Assassin that did it and there was no conspiracy of any kind at all.” This big lie has been completely exposed by many fine researchers. But Professor Jim Fetzer and his various teams of top experts in many fields have completely shredded the Warren Commission and the Official USG coverup. They have shown that Oswald was in the doorway of the School Book Depository when the volley of shots was fired at JFK. They have shown beyond any reasonable doubt that the Zapruder film was spliced and highly faked and have exposed how the JFK Assassination was done, by whom and how. It is now known beyond any reasonable doubt that it was ordered by the LBJ, Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover, George Bush1 (Scherf) and the JCS on behalf of the World Zionist City of London Rothschild Private Central Banksters using the CIA’s Op40 which was run out of Room 40 at Langley. Read and study all the great research done by Professor Fetzer and his teams of experts if you want to know all the details. You can find it on www.assassinationresearch.com or on www.veteranstoday.com or all over the Internet.
b. Sirhan Sirhan was a lone-nut assassin of RFK that did it and there was no conspiracy of any kind at all. Again, all just another Big USG Lie. Sirhan Sirhan was an MK-Ultra Mind-Kontrolled patsy run by the CIA and did not fire the killing shot that hit RFK. In fact 13 or more shots were fired and his Iver Johnson gun only held eight. the Hotel where the assassination occurred was a mob owned hotel and the security guard Caesar also had an Iver Johnson .22 revolver just like Sirhan. The killing shot was fired so close powder burns appeared on the skin near the entry point making it impossible for Sirhan Sirhan to have fired the shot. There were numerous CIA hit men photographed in the crowd before the shooting who were there to watch the fireworks and some of them were also present in Dealey Plaza. The LAPD Officers who ran the so-called investigation were CIA assets and suppressed and destroyed a great deal of evidence proving that it was a CIA conspiracy using Op40 once again. Can you say El Indio or David Morales?
c. James Earl Ray was a lone-nut assassin of Martin Luther King that did it and there was no conspiracy of any kind at all. Attorney William Pepper has thoroughly solved this case after many years of legal efforts. It is now provable that James earl ray did not fire a shot and was another man set up to be a “Lone Nut Patsy.” Read Attorney Pepper’s book if you want the truth which the USG is still fully denying to this day. A CIA Mafia shooter who was a policeman fired the shots, but a special army sniper squad was on a roof close-by laying prone and providing serious backup, ready to finish the job if necessary. All serious police protection had been withdrawn. Dr. King was assassinated because the SSG felt that he was becoming far too powerful, was too non-violent to be discredited and had turned against the Vietnam War and started speaking out about it. His emerging power alone could have stopped the war and the SSG knew it. And the SSG needs big perpetual wars for large war profits for their Wall Street buddies and large defense contractors.
d. Timothy McVeigh was the lone-nut bomber that blew up the Murrah Building on behalf of the American Militias. We now know this is another Big Government Lie because we now know for sure that the Israeli Mossad and Dual Citizens blew up the Murrah Building using a specially prepared and reconditioned W-54 nuclear Pitt acquired from Bush1 as part of a load of 350 decommissioned nuclear pitts taken out the back door at Pentex. McVeigh’s execution was phony. He was a US Army special forces soldier who was deployed to run this op which was a False-Flag on the newly emerging American Militias.
e. The Blind Sheik was a lone nut who planned and deployed the first NYC Trade Center Towers all by himself. This is another Big Government Lie. It is now known that the Sheik was set up and entrapped and was coerced to use real explosives when he wanted to use fake ones. The CIA placed a 55 gallon drum of cyanide next to the explosives in an experiment to see what cyanide would do to innocent civilians when detonated in such a manner. The CIA tunneled under the street and stole this cyanide from Louis Champon’s Natural Cherry Flavoring in Boca Raton, Florida and then tried to frame him up for it.
f. The Branch Davidians were a crazy “Bible-nuts” pedophile sex cult run by David Koresh who was building illegal fully automatic machine guns, was sexually abusing little children, they all deserved to be “burned to death” at Waco, Texas by the US Army and their force of tanks in order to stop Koresh’s sexual abuse of these children, after he and his men attacked the BATF that came to serve a warrant for illegal machine guns.
This (as all of the above) is another monstrous USG Big Lie. It is now easily provable that Koresh did not shoot first, did not sexually abuse children and could have easily been arrested when he went to town every morning to eat breakfast and that he and his folks had committed NO crimes at all but fired second in self defense after the BATF gunmen shot some Davidians first.
g. The attacks on America at NYC and the Pentagon were run by 19 Arab Terrorists from Afghanistan who were run and deployed by Osama Bin Laden from a cave in Afghanistan using a cell phone. This is an easily provable Big Government Lie that has been completely shredded by numerous groundbreaking articles on VT. Professor Jim Fetzer and his research teams of many experts have shredded the USG lies about this from every possible direction you can imagine and has shown that 9/11 was a nuclear event.( ) And VT’s Senior Editor Gordon Duff has shown conclusively that the 9/99/01 attack on the Twin Towers was a nuclear attack on America by Israeli assets and even revealed where the devices came from and how they wee prepared.( )
h. Senator Paul Wellstone died needlessly in an air crash in bad weather because of an inexperienced, negligent sloppy pilot. This is another monstrous Big Government Lie. Prof. Jim Fetzer and his teams have shown conclusively that Senator Wellstone was murdered by a ground based high tech attack on the aircraft which had been sprayed with thermite to make sure it completely burned up all evidence. There was no pilot error and the Pilot Dick Conry was very experienced, known to be an obsessive compulsive type that was exceedingly careful about his flying. Interestingly, Dick Cheney aka “Darth Vader” had delivered a serious threat to Senator Wellstone that he better back the new Mideast War or he would suffer grave consequences. Murdering a sitting US Senator and his family is a pretty serious consequence, wouldn’t you say?
i. The Boston Marathon Bombing was done by immigrant Muslim terrorists, the Tsarnovs and the injuries were horrific, involving legs blown off. This is another monstrous USG Big Lie. The Boston marathon Bombing was a phony which used black powder puffer charges and professional crisis actors, at least one which has a previously missing limb. Stage props were used and fake blood too and all this has been caught on video taken by local retail stores outside HD security cameras.
No one was injured, wounded or killed and no legs were blown off. The main patsy however was murdered by the FBI in cold blood and so far this hard core FBI murderer is walking around free, ready to kill again. And the second patsy has alleged to have been been stabbed in the neck by another criminal FBI so he couldn’t talk. Numerous Intel insiders believe that this whole operation was an Israeli asset designed op designed to scare the public into giving DHS more extensive and Draconian police powers.
j. There were 21 deaths at the Sandy Hook school shooting which was caused by it being too easy for an unbalanced young man to obtain and use an assault rifle. This is a huge and easily exposed Big Government Lie. The Sandy Hook School was closed down over four years ago for a serious asbestos contamination problem. This can be easily proved, but one piece of evidence is that the Internet was disconnected at that time and remained disconnected.
This attack on truth in America has been a multi-modal attack on many fronts using numerous USG agencies but the Controlled major mass media (CMMM) has been the main mode of Mind-kontrol of the masses because it continually dispenses massive Big Government Lies as truth.
Could it be that the Joint Crime Cabal (JCC) has been hitting us on every front and the volume of such attacks on “We the People” is so great that most are so disoriented that they just cannot get a fix on anything. Yes, this is best described as a very scientifically engineered full spectrum attack at almost every available vector against “We the People.”
With such a broad-based attack at every vector most folks find themselves confused, discordant and in a state of alienation and cognitive dissonance. This state of mind typically causes folks to go away and remain in quiet desperation and a state of anomie, a state of being where folks find themselves having no normative structure to provide expectations with which to deal with such a complex disheartening situation they find themselves in.
There is hope that the truth will prevail and will become forced into the Major Mass Media at some point.
Numerous media experts now view the worldwide Internet as the New Gutenberg Press and believe it is a major earth shattering milestone in spreading truth at the speed of light all over the world in spite of all the CMMM dispensed USG lies. The Alternative Media published and broadcast on the Worldwide Internet constitutes a monumental change in the dissemination of information and truth. truth tends to resonate with folks and then spreads like wildfire, whereas USG dispensed lies are soon found out and picked apart because so many millions all over the world are scrutinizing them as never before.
The Fetzer worldwide Open System for group research and publication using the worldwide Internet has caught on and is setting a new standard for investigative journalism using the Internet and its Alternative Media.
When private debunking of the official USG lies began, it was initially done by individual researchers such as Professor Jim Fetzer. he is a seasoned social scientist specializing in Philosophy, Logic, and the scientific method. Professor Fetzer was one of the first very well trained valid “non-stooge” researchers to publish his findings on the worldwide Internet using an “open system” model on continual updating as new information and facts appeared.
Professor Fetzer’s first efforts were “lone-wolf” ventures which quickly gained numerous sock-puppet attackers, most of which were USG or American Intel misinformation artists sent to obstruct the discovery and publication of truth which exposed Big USG lies. Prof. Fetzer worked very hard to counteract these psyops, but soon realized that he had to consult with the very top experts in the areas of the research he was being attacked in. Soon he realized that to cover all his bases he had to assemble research teams comprised of top experts in numerous different areas of forensics, pathology, X-ray, medicine, photography, etc., which he did.
In the process of assembling teams, his research and publishing system became open to input from anyone at any age that discovered facts which could be shown to be valid. Because Prof. Fetzer realized that he was not an expert in all the important areas related to the JFK Assassination that needed serious attention from highly qualified scientists, well be brought such folks into his investigation.
The result of this group, open system effort has been the authoring and publishing of three monumental, groundbreaking scientific books on the JFK Assassination, each based on the group research of a team of top world experts in numerous areas. These three books have literally shredded the Big Government lies related to the JFK Assassination such as the completely bogus “King’s New Clothes” position of the Warren Commission, so bad it is regarded as a bad political joke and major example of typical Big Government Lies.
This open system of research and publishing which is now the standard operating procedure used by Professor Fetzer is constantly expanding and new teams are being formed all the time and reflected in Professor Fetzer’s numerous excellent articles now published on VT and all over the Internet including Rense.com. So far he has shredded the following USG crimes and coverups: The JFK Assassination; The RFK Assassination; The Senator Wellstone Assassination; The inside-job, Gladio-style False-Flag 9/11/01 nuclear attack on America at NYC and the Pentagon; The fake Boston Bombing; and the Sandy Hook Hoax.
This Fetzer open system of research and publishing using the worldwide Internet is now becoming the norm all over the world. he has truly started a new pastime sport of folks ganging up on the USG shill, liars and sock-puppets. Every time the USG dispenses another Big USG Lie through their CMMM, millions of arm chair Internet researchers all over the world scrutinize every possible bit of evidence and eventually make astounding discoveries that fully expose these Big USG Lies.
And the amount of good information that folks now have immediate access to through the worldwide Internet is astounding. So now we have millions of researchers all working on exposing these Big USG Lies and any other Big Lies from any other Government about their major crimes and coverups. And when shills, sock-puppets and USG goons play their hands, they are quickly exposed and ganged up in amazing ratios of 100 to 1 or greater.
The lone wolf researcher situation used to exist where the lone-wolf was ganged up maybe 100 to 1 by these shills, sock-puppets and USG goons, but now its the other way around. Thanks to the Internet the tables have turned and these shills, sock-puppets and USG goons are being chewed up and spit out for dinner.
Coffin nails for the Joint Crime cabal (JCC)?
Obviously it is easy to see that the worldwide Internet is the new Gutenberg Press and is responsible for a worldwide emergence of POPULISM. This newly emerging worldwide Populism is coffin nails to the World Zionists and the Joint Crime Cabal (JCC) that runs America and much of the free world through the Rothschild Zionist private Central banking of the City of London.
Nuclear Education: Nukes in Iraq, 911 Confirmation UPDATED
Introduced by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
911, Baghdad and Tora bora were nuked. They worked so well that they are here to stay. Any future battle will use them. The joint chiefs of staff stated after the battle of Baghdad that if we had used these in Vietnam we would have won. Never again will we ever lose with weapons like this in our arsenal. Mini and Micro nukes are here to stay so get use to it. Advanced bio- weapons “Ebola” and “Bug Spray” are next.”
The following text was submitted by two groups. One is the IAEA, the United Nations nuclear watchdog group that has given us so much quality material over the past few months. The remainder is from scientists at one of our nuclear weapons labs.
We have collectively taken it upon ourselves to inform the public of how real nuclear weapons work, how they are being used and what the future can expect.
Toward that end, for those who have not been following this series, please catch up where you can. As much of this material is written by and for nuclear weapons designers, we are mixing input from sources of general interest with highly technical and often very classified material that few will understand thoroughly.
Our only goal with this series is to expand knowledge of the use of nuclear weapons, trends in development and limitations for deployment.
The U.S. military used neutron weapons in the Battle of Baghdad, says a former commander of Iraq’s Republican Guard. And at least one retired U.S. Army officer is backing up his charge.
In an April 9 interview reported by Al Jazeera, Saifeddin Fulayh Hassan Taha al-Rawi says that, “U.S. forces used neutron bombs during their assault on Baghdad airport before the April 9, 2003, capture of the Iraqi capital.”
The bombs incinerated about 2,000 elite Republican Guard troops but left the buildings and infrastructure at the airport intact, he added. (aljazeera.net)
The neutron bomb is designed to produce a minimal blast while releasing a massive wave of neutron and gamma radiation, which can penetrate armor or several feet of earth. This radiation is extremely destructive to living tissue. The bomb has been in the U.S. arsenal for decades but has never been used in combat before.
A BBC News article on March 4, 2002, said the U.S. was using thermobaric weapons in Afghanistan, and described how they employ a combination of heat and pressure, “distributing a very fine cloud of explosive material throughout the target which is then ignited. The heat and pressure effects are formidable—soldiers caught in the blast could have the air sucked from their bodies and even their internal organs catastrophically destroyed.”
“The best evidence that I have from international sources, scientific sources, is that our position was becoming untenable at the Baghdad airport and we used a neutron warhead, at least one. That is the big secret of Baghdad airport.
“If one looks into international data, there are reportings of enhanced radiation of some livestock, and of human metabolic effects—death and disease. It explains why, after the Battle of Baghdad, we got fragmentary stories of things like truckloads of dirt being moved out and moved in. It made no particular sense at the time, until one puts it into perspective, as a decontamination operation. Again, that part of the Battle of Baghdad, the fact that we went nuclear, explains a lot of things that came out afterwards and also explains why it is that it had to be covered up.”
Whether it was a neutron bomb or the AGM-114N, the Pentagon used some sort of Weapon of Mass Destruction on Baghdad airport.
The complete fusion of 6 grammes of deuterium and about six grammes of tritium would produce an explosion of one kiloton. 56 grams of plutonium are necessary to create a one-kiloton fission reaction
The power of the nuclear reaction derives from the fact that the “fast neutrons” emitted in a thermonuclear reaction create more energy than neutrons produced in fission. Frank Barnaby notes that “the neutrons produced during the fusion process have much greater energy than fission neutrons.
On average, each deuterium-tritium fusion event produces 14 MeV of free neutron energy, compared with 3 MeV for each fission event.” Moreover, “fusion is a more efficient explosive process than fission. The complete fusion of, for example, about 6 grammes of deuterium and about six grammes of tritium would produce an explosion of one kiloton.” By comparison, about 56 grams of plutonium are necessary to create a one-kiloton fission reaction.
The deadly effects of the explosion are created both by heat, blast and neutron radiation. According to Barnaby, within a 500 meter radius of a one-kiloton ER blast, everything would simply disappear (primarily from heat and blast effects). Within one kilometer (KM), there would be immediate incapacitation and early death (within hours from the neutron and gamma radiation) for all exposed individuals.
Within two KM of ground zero, there would be severe radiation sickness, and most exposed individuals would die within a few weeks. It might be emphasized that these effects would result from use of a warhead one-fifteenth to one-twentieth the yield of the devices used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki (1KT) and that outside the immediate heat and blast area (the 500-meter radius), very little collateral damage would occur.
These weapons are thus very lethal. “A neutron bomb would have the same radiation (neutron)-killing capability, at a given range, as a ‘normal’ nuclear weapon of about five times the explosive power.” If delivery capabilities allow it, the weapons can be used highly selectively.
At the same time, since fusion produces no residual radiation, “the cleanest bomb would be a fission-fusion bomb with the minimum amount of fission necessary to trigger the thermonuclear reaction.”
The missile-equipped enhanced radiation warhead is a theater weapon. The use of small ER warheads to attack and incapacitate the enemy through exposure to intense neutron radiation is said to have at least three tactical advantages. First,because of reduced heat and blast damage, “they would make minimizing collateral damage easier to achieve.” Since heat and blast are limited to the immediate zone around the blast, it is thus argued that there would be less damage to buildings and landscape than with other weapons.
Second, since there is virtually no residual radiation from the weapons (other than the radiation from the fission trigger), forces could occupy the attacked area within a matter of hours without special protective clothing and without fear of contamination. Third, if the enemy were attacked outside the limited area where heat and blast effects occur but inside the zone of intense radioactivity (the one-kilometer zone in the example above where radiation achieves the necessary 800 rad level), the weapons themselves would be largely undamaged and could be appropriated for friendly use.
In a single day, these deliberate acts of mass murder killed nearly 3,000 human beings from 57 countries. More than 400 of the dead were first responders, including New York City firefighters, police officers, and EMTs. It was one of the most-covered media events of all time, and after a decade, the images are still difficult to view. These attacks and the global reaction to them have profoundly shaped the world we live in, so it remains important to see the images and remember just what happened on that dark day.
