US Military Admits: We Deliberately Bombed a Hospital in Iraq

The U.S. military said Thursday that it intentionally bombed a hospital in Mosul, Iraq as part of its efforts to "eradicate" Islamic State (ISIS) fighters.

The attack on the Al Salam hospital complex took place Wednesday at the request of Iraqi forces, with coalition aircraft using "precision-guided munitions," Air Force Col. John Dorrian, spokesperson for the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, told reporters.

He said "it's very difficult to ascertain with full and total fidelity" that there were no civilian casualties, whether in the building targeted or elsewhere within the hospital complex.

Baghdad hospital bombed

US aircraft hit a Red Crescent maternity hospital in Baghdad, the city's trade fair, and other civilian buildings today, killing several people and wounding at least 25, hospital sources and a Reuters witness said.
The attacks occurred at 9.30am (0630 BST) and caught motorists by surprise as they ventured out during a lull in the bombing. At least five cars were crushed and their drivers burned to death inside, Reuters correspondent Samia Nakhoul said.

Patients and at least three doctors and nurses working at the hospital were among those wounded.

The missiles obliterated wings of Baghdad's trade fair building, which lies next to a government security office that was apparently missed in the bombings.

Iraq's information minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, told a news conference that overnight bombings by US-led forces killed 24 civilians and injured 186 across the country. In Baghdad, he said, 10 civilians had been killed and 90 wounded.

One Day After Warning Russia of Civilian Casualties, the U.S. Bombs a Hospital in Afghanistan

Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power marched to Twitter to proclaim: “We call on Russia to immediately cease attacks on Syrian oppo[sition and] civilians.” Along with that decree, she posted a statement from the U.S. and several of its closest authoritarian allies — including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the U.K. — warning Russia that civilian casualties “will only fuel more extremism and radicalization.”

Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least nine of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. “Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,” reported the New York Times.

Airstrike Hits Doctors Without Borders Hospital in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan — A crowded hospital in the embattled city of Kunduz that treats war wounded came under attack on Saturday and the American military acknowledged that it may have killed 19 patients, staff members and others at the facility while firing on insurgents nearby.

The attack, which the military said in a statement might have been “collateral damage” that occurred while engaging militants, drew a fierce international outcry. The head of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, condemned it and called for a “thorough and impartial investigation.” It also renewed scrutiny of the United States military’s record of causing civilian casualties, which has alienated the Afghan public and often undermined relations with the government here.

ASTRONOMERS JUST FOUND 72 STELLAR EXPLOSIONS, BUT DON’T KNOW WHAT’S CAUSING THEM

A supernova is one of the most impressive natural phenomena in the Universe. Unfortunately, such events are often brief and transient, temporarily becoming as bright as an entire galaxy and then fading away. But given what these bright explosions – which occur when a star reaches the end of its life cycle – can teach us about the Universe, scientists are naturally very interested in studying them.

Using data from the Dark Energy Survey Supernova (DES-SN) program, a team of astronomers recently detected 72 supernovae, the largest number of events discovered to date. These supernovae were not only very bright, but also very brief – a finding which the team is still struggling to explain. The results of their study were presented on Tuesday, April 3rd, at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science in Liverpool.

Trump Heads World Peace Into the Abyss Blindfolded

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

He’s a geopolitically ignorant businessman, influenced by hawkish neocons raging for endless wars, convincing him it’s the right thing to do, concealing the risks.

He’s blind to the danger endless wars of aggression pose, especially in Syria.

Russian and US forces in the country have polar opposite objectives – combating terrorism v. supporting it, seeking conflict resolution v. rejecting it, pursuing world peace and stability v. waging endless wars of aggression.

Clashing would pit the world’s dominant nuclear powers against each other. Does Trump understand the risks he’s taking?

'MERGER FROM HELL' REPORTEDLY APPROVED BY DOJ, PUSHING AGRICHEMICAL CHOKEHOLD ON FOOD SYSTEM

Watchdog groups sounded alarms on Monday after the Wall Street Journal reported that the proposed mega-merger of Bayer and Monsanto has cleared its final regulatory hurdle in the U.S.

The reported approval from the Justice Department came "after the companies pledged to sell off additional assets," the Journal reported, and despite concerns raised by hundreds of food and farm groups. It also comes weeks after the European Commission gave its thumbs up.

"The approval of the third supersized seed merger, after ChemChina-Syngenta and Dow-DuPont," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, "leaves farmers vulnerable to price gouging for seeds and other supplies and strengthens the hold a few dominant corporations have over the entire food system."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder how many members of the DOJ approving this merger hold stock in these companies, even if they would never, ever eat the food grown from those seeds.

The town facing a 'humanitarian crisis' caused by the radiation from state-of-the-art street lamps: Residents have endured insomnia, nose bleeds and even stillbirths, scientist claims

Radiation given off by state-of-the-art street lamps is wreaking havoc on the residents of Gateshead.

According to local scientist Mark Steele, 58, people living in the area are experiencing symptoms of insomnia, nose bleeds and several women have even endured the horror of stillbirths since the introduction of LED lamps that emit 5G radiation.

In his circle alone, Mr Steele is aware of three women who have lost their children since the lights were installed in September 2016, with one giving birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours.

He said: 'We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people's bedroom windows. It's a humanitarian crisis.'

California state senator who pushed vaccine mandate now seeks to CRIMINALIZE “fake news” about medicine, politics and government

In the latest stunning assault on the freedom to think, California state senator Richard Pan — known as the “Mercury Joker” super villain for pushing mandatory vaccines into law via SB 277 — now wants to criminalize all bloggers and independent journalists who dare question the official narratives on vaccines, medicine, politics and government.

The quest for absolute authoritarian control never seems to end with these left-wing zealots. And California looks more and more like North Korea with each new law. (Is Richard Pan the long-lost cousin of Kim Jong-Un?)

Ever seeking to limit public debate, crush independent journalism and control all speech, Richard Pan has a new thought control bill entitled, “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.” While the title seems to target social media websites, the language of the bill clearly applies the law to all blogs, news websites, video sites and podcasts.

“That’s just the tip of the iceberg,” warned Antje Lauer, a professor of microbiology at California State University (CSU), who is an expert on Valley Fever. “This is a very misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed disease. The actual number of cases is likely 10 times as high.”

CRISPR’D FOOD, COMING SOON TO A SUPERMARKET NEAR YOU

For years now, the US Department of Agriculture has been flirting with the latest and greatest DNA manipulation technologies. Since 2016, it has given free passes to at least a dozen gene-edited crops, ruling that they fall outside its regulatory purview. But on Wednesday, March 28, the agency made its relationship status official; effective immediately, certain gene-edited plants can be designed, cultivated, and sold free from regulation. “With this approach, USDA seeks to allow innovation when there is no risk present,” US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Editing plant DNA is playing with the building blocks of life, without any real testing, or knowing what negative effect this food may have on the people who consume it.

GUT MICROBES ARE VULNERABLE TO WIDE RANGE OF DRUGS

Anti-inflammatories, antipsychotics and cancer drugs are among a host of medications that might inadvertently slow the growth of gut bacteria.

Many antibiotics can upset digestion, but it has not been clear to what extent other types of drug affect the gut’s bacterial balance.

Athanasios Typas at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, and his colleagues tested the effect of 835 non-antibiotic drugs on 40 common gut bacteria. Roughly one-quarter of the drugs restrained the growth of at least one bacterium, and nearly 5% affected at least ten. The authors also found that patients taking these non-antibiotics often have side effects similar to those reported for antibiotics.

The menagerie of microbes living in the gut is essential to human health. Identifying the drugs that affect specific gut bacteria could help efforts to develop new drugs and reduce the side effects of existing drugs, the authors say.

It was a delicate operation that had become a daily routine — extracting ever tinier doses of the antidepressant she had taken for three years, on and off, and was desperately trying to quit.

“Basically that’s all I have been doing — dealing with the dizziness, the confusion, the fatigue, all the symptoms of withdrawal,” said Ms. Toline, 27, of Tacoma, Wash. It took nine months to wean herself from the drug, Zoloft, by taking increasingly smaller doses.

Bombshell: All tested vaccines reveal toxic substances linked to autoimmune disease

According to the National Institutes of Health, up to 23.5 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease – and the number is increasing steadily. Unfortunately, Western medicine continues to ignore the impact of vaccines on this growing health crisis.

In addition, rates of cancer, diabetes, autism and other neurodevelopmental diseases continue to soar – a disease (and disability) epidemic that has researchers baffled. Yet, many integrative healthcare providers have warned the general public that vaccines – already known to contain neurotoxic metals like, lead and chromium – are a fundamental trigger for these so-called ‘mysterious’ health issues.

Now, a pair of Italian scientists are reporting unsafe levels of contaminants in human vaccines, further raising the concern over these negative (and avoidable) health outcomes.

At the same time, references have been made to the notorious NGO "White Helmets," which has been repeatedly caught acting with terrorists, as well as other so-called humanitarian organizations based in the United Kingdom and the United States," the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry went on to say that it had repeatedly warned about possible provocations involving the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Their major aim is to accuse Syrian government forces of chemical weapons use and justify possible military intervention in Syria from abroad, according to the ministry's statement.

Hawaii becomes 7th state to legalize medically assisted suicide so patients can 'die with dignity'

Hawaii has become the seventh state to legalize medically assisted suicide, a topic that has been deeply divisive in the medical community.

Supporters say it's a compassionate choice to prevent suffering and critics say it's immoral and goes against the Hippocratic Oath which states: 'I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan.'

Welcome to Brussels - one of Europe's most polluted cities

It's the de-facto capital of Europe, but also one of the most polluted cities in Europe. Brussels' unenviable pollution record is down, in part, to a high percentage of diesel cars on its roads.

People who live in the city are trying to help themselves.

Armed with an app and detection device, one group is taking to the streets to measure the quality of the city's air.

"People who live here in Brussels near the main roads, when they have children between two and five years-old will experience more bronchiolitis, a chronic irritation of bronchitis," said Lieving Chemin from the 'BRAL' association.

"Children under six years who grow up in the city will be more likely to develop asthma and a lung disability that will stay a long time."

Pentagon Admits 60,000 Black Soldiers Used in Human Experiment

The U.S. Government used Black soldiers as human guinea pigs in chemical experiments during World War II, according to a new NPR report.

Around 60,000 U.S. soldiers were enlisted in a classified chemical weapons testing program in which soldiers were enclosed in gas chambers and exposed to chemicals.

“They said we were being tested to see what effect these gases would have on Black skins,” Rollins Edwards, a U.S. Army soldier during World War II told NPR.

“You had no choice. You did not know where you were going. They didn’t tell you anything,” Edwards added.

Police: Missing CDC worker drowned; no sign of foul play

An employee for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who was reported missing more than seven weeks ago was found drowned in a river not far from his house, with no sign of foul play, authorities said Thursday.

Timothy Cunningham’s body was found Tuesday partially submerged in water and mud on the west bank of the Chattahoochee River in northwest Atlanta, fire-rescue department spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford said at a news conference. Stafford said that rescue crews had to use boats and special equipment to reach Cunningham’s body because it was located in difficult terrain in a “remote area not easily accessible.”

Fulton County Chief Medical Examiner Jan Gorniak determined the cause of death. “Since the investigation is ongoing, we do not have … whether it was an accident, a suicide, or anything other than that” Cunningham drowned, Gorniak said.

Gorniak said the decomposing body was positively identified using dental records.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No sign of foul play?

Cunningham left the CDC early on February 12, complaining of ill health. In theory, he went directly home. So how does he wind up in a river? Did he decide to go for a swim in February?

And why did Cunningham tell his neighbor that his wife should delete Cunningham's phone number from her cell phone?

Fugu: The fish more poisonous than cyanide

The Japanese delicacy fugu, or blowfish, is so poisonous that the smallest mistake in its preparation could be fatal.

...

Kunio Miura always uses his special knives to prepare fugu - wooden-handled with blades tempered by a swordsmith to a keen edge. Before he starts work in his kitchen they are brought to him by an assistant, carefully stored in a special box.

Miura-san, as he is respectfully known, has been cutting up blowfish for 60 years but still approaches the task with caution. A single mistake could mean death for a customer.
