The Gaping Hole in Casualty Reporting!
The Gaping Hole in Casualty Reporting!

April 8, 2003 -- As the TV, radio, and print journalists scramble to outdo each other in covering the Iraqi "war of liberation" there is no end to details and posting of numbers -- we are told many times on a daily basis as to what our military casualties are (so-called "coalition forces") and there are numbers given as to how many Iraqis have been killed. Then every once in a while there may be a statistic regarding the effects of Saddam's brutal regime -- innocent victims of such, etc.

April 11, 2003 -- As the news focused much on the take over of Baghdad and the toppling of Saddam's giant statue, other reports gave details of political prisoners being released and Saddam's "torture chambers" -- some very horrible things continue to be revealed about the ruthless and brutal reign of Saddam & Co. But then, has anyone considered that well over a million wombs in this country turn out to be "torture chambers" of a different kind throughout the course of a year in this country -- the result in each separate case is always fatal -- no exceptions! Examples are shown below -- if you have a weak heart, you better not look! And remember this takes place in a nation that proudly salutes its flag and cites these words among others, " nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." That last expression "for all" really should be changed, since that is not at all a reality -- at least in the case of the victims you see pictured below! And, oh yes, we have these words imprinted on coins and currency -- "In God We Trust." Do you sense that something is a bit amiss here?

Now then -- anyone got an answer as to why we see no numbers or pictures as to the brutality and murder taking place within the borders of the "land of the free and home of the brave?" Those news people get a sudden case of lockjaw on this one! Well take a look folks -- that is, if you consider yourself a person who is honest and willing to face ALL the facts about a republic that prides itself on the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" which is supposed to be granted to all persons! Uh, have you read the Declaration of Independence lately where such things as "unalienable rights" are mentioned, and that such rights are supposed to be granted to all persons?

The Number of
Unborn Children Brutally
Mutilated & Murdered in USA

since USA started "liberating" Iraq
from the brutality of Saddam Hussein!
March 19 2003

Watch this for about 60 to 90 seconds
and see what happens!

Hey! Don't get mad at me for posting this -- I'm not the one who did the brutal, murderous acts involving these victims -- I'm just showing you what goes on all the time in this country and all the while our political and religious leaders keep quite silent about it, and our news media culture even more so, in spite of many being part of networks that don't hesitate to spew out "entertainment" that features graphic violence, vulgarity, and immorality of the most repugnant kinds!

Is lockjaw a contagious disease that is mainly infecting politicians, numerous religious leaders, and those in the news media culture?

Further, is this a disease that has a "selective" paralyzing effect in that it keeps these people from speaking about certain acts of brutality and murder within the good old USA and bringing the same to the public's attention while at the same time they enthusiastically detailed and exhibited graphic examples of the brutal acts of Saddam Hussein and his regime? And maybe there is another side effect of this disease -- a partial blindness in that they get extremely upset with persons such as I who would display these images and try to turn their eyes away from viewing such, but don't hesitate to personally view and show images that speak of violence as perpetrated by the likes of a Saddam Hussein while giving graphic verbal descriptions of such. Isn't there a word for this sort of practice -- hypo... something or other?

Uh, you would agree, would you not, that activity which results in what you have witnessed above does qualify as "atrocities?" And that brutality, mutilation, and murder have been involved here? Further, each victim had a heart that was beating until the atrocity had been committed which terminated that victims' life? And this being done in the name of "constitutional rights?"

So now take a look at the total tally of United States' sanctioned practices of ongoing mutilation and murder via the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling as of January 1973, which essentially says that it is a woman's "constitutional right" to destroy her unborn child -- has anyone run that by the Creator of this mighty universe to determine His views on this matter? I nominate our elected officials, church leaders, and high profile news media folks to take on this assignment, and will await eagerly to hear their report as to what response the Creator has made to the inquiry -- come to think of it, there is substantive evidence that indicates when God the Creator does make His response, we'll all be acutely aware of that response as it unfolds!!

Take a look at the
the number of unborn
children brutally murdered
in the United States

since Roe vs. Wade
January 1973

Remember, even if Saddam had been left alone and remained in power until he died, he would never have matched our record for mutilating and murdering innocent victims. Iraq only has a little over 24 million total population!

Are we so na´ve or stupid -- or maybe it's a mixture of both, that we believe that the God Whom we as a nation claim to "trust" and be "under" is looking the other way, or is not the least bit concerned that we have willfully destroyed over 42 million unborn children -- children for whom He had a wonderful plan and purpose?

It is time for You to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void. Therefore I love Your commandments more than gold, yes, than fine gold! Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.
Psalm 119:126-128 NKJV
