As we know, this was followed by an intervention in Iraq. As a result, after 10 years, Iraq lives worse than ever, civil war is raging in it, losses have surpassed a hundred thousand people among the civilian population, and the US is doing nothing but pumping oil.
But the most important thing in the other. The States blamed al-Qaeda and its leader, an "ex" CIA agent, Osama Bin Laden, who was mysteriously killed last year, after which he was also dumped into the ocean inexplicably. The team that eliminated Bin Laden mysteriously died in a helicopter crash after a while.
For the past two years, the United States has officially financed, armed and trained al-Qaida, among other terrorist groups of the so-called "opposition." The other day, you all know about it, the United States and Great Britain declared that they are ready, if not for intervention, then for the next “democratic” bombing of independent and sovereign Syria.
Why all? Allegedly, Syria has violated the international "Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical weapons and its destruction ”from 29 April 1997. Obviously, Obama and his oval office do not know the Russian proverb: “Do not blame the priest, if you want a crooked face!” Because the United States itself used chemical weapons after signing this convention. Well, let's arrange a no-fly zone in the country where everything is upside down?
Why do you think the United States so actively tried to plant Bradley Manning for a hundred years behind bars that the guy decided to change sex with joy?
Because among the archives opened by Manning for WikiLeaks, it was precisely the information that the Americans supplied chemical weapons to Iraq and even used them there.
The translation of materials from WikiLeaks was published back in 2010 year on the website of Segodnya.RU information and analytical agency.
I bring it here completely, without bills, as it is:
“When the WikiLeaks site was just starting its work, materials were published about the“ atrocities of dictatorial regimes, ”mainly in countries in Africa and China. Moreover, the closest associate of Julian Assange (the creator of WikiLeaks) was the Chinese oppositionist in the Van Dun run. Officially, the purpose of the site’s work was to cover the facts of corruption in China, the republics of Central Asia and Russia. The Western press sang the praises of Assange and smoked incense, extolling the enterprising Swede for his impartial struggle for human rights.
But soon there was not a trace left of Western complacency. This happened immediately after WikiLeaks in April 2010 published the classified video of NATO “Reuters” journalists and their escorts around Baghdad in 2007 in April. Then 18 people died at the hands of NATO members. Now Assange has to hide from the wrath of "the most democratic country in the world" - the United States, which initiated his persecution around the world.
Below is a translation of one of the articles of WikiLeaks, incriminating Americans in the cynical use of chemical weapons against the Iraqi army and the civilian population of Iraq.
The United States is found to have sent at least 2 386 short-range chemical weapons to its soldiers in Iraq for its soldiers. This is mentioned in the report, the volume in 2000 pages, which the editorial staff of the WikiLeaks portal was able to receive, which lists more than 1 000 000 units of ammunition delivered to the US Army in Iraq.
The elements of chemical weapons, according to the classification adopted by NATO member countries, have received the “Chemical Weapons and Equipment” sign.
A few weeks before the start of the Iraqi 19 campaign in March 2003, the US government had to listen to detailed reproaches from its main ally, the UK, about why Donald Rumsfeld, the US defense secretary, made loud statements that Washington might use chemical weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Washington kept deathly silence, with the exception of a single case, when the US authorities first denied and then acknowledged the use of white phosphorus (flammable substance) during the Falluja brutal assault, although this is prohibited by the Convention on the use of chemical weapons.
According to the provisions of the Convention adopted in 1997, “each state undertakes not to use chemicals to suppress mass demonstrations as a method of warfare”. The only exception is to suppress mass protests (riots, uprisings, insurrections) directly in the territory of the signatory country. The British were the author of the convention. Then the Americans put their signature on it.
In an interview with the New York Times, Eliza Harris, an analyst at the Clinton Administration National Security Council, said that these chemicals are increasingly on everyone’s lips because there are facts of their uncontrolled use in military conditions.
Most of the types of chemical weapons and equipment listed in the report were labeled and were registered with the Chemical and Biological Center in Edgewood at the Biological Laboratory of the US Armed Forces in Maryland.
Indicated by the code M33A1, this gas is supplied in special cylinders under high pressure in the form of shoulder bags. A special liquid sprayer and a mechanism for filling it are attached to them. In April, 2003. The command of the mechanized units and their support of the US Army requested from 75 to 225 pieces, placing their order for the tender.
The most frequently mentioned type of chemical weapon in the list is an advanced gas grenade launcher mounted on an armored car and firing smoke and gas 66-mm grenades. However, it is impossible to determine how often gas or smoke grenades were used, since the quantities of the supplied equipment are not indicated in the list.
In the same way, field artillery could use gas projectiles of various modifications. On the US Armed Forces website, L96A1 CS grenades are mentioned in the training literature, but they are not in our list.
Even before the birth of the Chemical Weapons Convention 1993g. The United States developed a new nerve weapon. These were 155-mm artillery shells loaded with sarin. After Washington revised its program of using chemical weapons in combat operations, American gunsmiths set about developing the following two types of similar weapons.
Interestingly, the US military police were also armed to the teeth with gas weapons. Some armored vehicles carried up to 13 gas canisters, not counting the previously installed gas grenade launchers and their ammunition.
If this weapon was used to disperse the Iraqis, then it is time to ask how this was justified from a legal point of view, and how the Iraqi government treated it.
If this weapon was not used to disperse the Iraqis, then it’s time to ask why these weapons were delivered to Iraq in such quantities if its use as a method of warfare is prohibited by the Convention on the use of chemical weapons from 1997.
If we exclude the facts of the use of chemical weapons by the units of the military police, there will still be several of its varieties, which are not clearly assigned to any division of the US Armed Forces.
The United States violated the Convention on the use of chemical weapons from 1997., Supplying Iraq with chemical reagents to suppress mass protests, all of them resorting to it during the conduct of hostilities. Especially often used gas МХNUMXA33, mentioned at the beginning of the article. It is ideally suited for smoking of insurgents from urban slums, and it is used exclusively in offensive operations. Such widespread use of prohibited chemicals was widely ignored by the US government.
Information leakage helped us find out that the US military in Iraq was supplied with chemical weapons, the use of which was prohibited by the Convention. Indeed, according to its provisions, these weapons can be used only in the territory of the signatory country, i.e. in the "home". In all other cases, the use of toxic substances is prohibited. And although the United States does not agree with this interpretation of the main provisions of the Convention, there is much evidence that the Americans are wrong after all, and not the Convention. The United States, of course, is more likely to recognize the facts of the partial use of chemical weapons (on Iraqi prisoners and their pacification during transportation). The painful attempts by the Yankees to get away from the direct answers have one goal - to avoid uncomfortable questioning.
And there may be a lot of those. For example, on the planned in advance illegal use of toxic weapons (several units of the US Armed Forces had it in service). Or about insincerity in relation to its main ally - London (the use of such types of chemical weapons is allowed only in the territory of the signatory country). Or about the political ambiguity of the American wording about what kind of riots they suppressed in Iraq. Or about neglect of the Iraqi government, whose competence is precisely the suppression of riots in the "home".
The original and all the details on the site WikiLeaks:
Let's add to this the use of NATO bombs with warheads of depleted uranium in 2011 during the bombing of Libya:
As a result, the uranium nanofill filled the Libyan cities. And this is a radiation poisoning of entire generations of Libyans.
And before the notorious convention, the United States considered it a good thing to bomb phosphorus, for example, women and children in Vietnam:
For understanding what kind of chemical weapon it is - white phosphorus (source):
"White phosphorus is used for equipment aviation bombs, aviation cluster munitions, artillery shells, mines, as well as mixtures. When such an ammunition explodes, phosphorus is crushed into pieces, which spontaneously ignite in air, forming a cloud of white smoke.
White phosphorus is also used as a smoke-forming and incendiary substance, it is vigorously oxidized when in contact with air and self-ignites in air. During combustion, phosphoric anhydride (P2O5) is formed, which, with the moisture of air, produces white smoke from the smallest droplets of phosphoric acids. When burning white phosphorus, the temperature is about 100 degrees C. The density of white phosphorus 1,828 g / cm3, the melting point is 44,14 degrees C.
When spraying a solution consisting of 20 weight parts of phosphorus and 1 weight parts of carbon disulfide, the latter quickly evaporates, and the phosphorus remaining in finely divided state lights up and ignites all combustible objects on which it fell.
A characteristic sign of phosphoric burns is a peculiar garlic odor, a glow in the dark, in case of a crust disruption, the wound begins to smoke (glowing and smoking wounds). White phosphorus is absorbed into the bloodstream, having a resorptive effect (in mild cases, clinically it is weakness, dizziness, headache, bradycardia, nausea, in severe cases - disorders of the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, liver - pain, jaundice, hepatomegaly, bile pigments in urine, punctate hemorrhages on the skin, hematuria, weak arrhythmic pulse, hypotension, sharp nervous agitation with a transition to a comatose state) ".
While the US is trying to find a pretext for the bombing and intervention of Syria, it may be time officially to publicly remind them of war crimes involving the use of chemical weapons in violation of the convention?
With the arrest and sentencing of Bradley Mannig they actually confirmed that the document published by WikiLeaks is genuine.
Bloody Dicator Obama, return the Nobel Peace Prize! You have proved your effective bloodthirstiness even the destruction of sovereign Libya.
No chemical weapons found in your country yet? Then Obama goes to you.
PS According to experts, if the United States launches a rocket-bombing attack on chemical weapons depots, it will inevitably lead to poisoning the country's population.
