A recent study by a medical team has revealed that the rate of cancer and congenital deformities among the population of Fallujah, in Iraq has significantly risen since the city was attacked by the US in 2004.

According to Dr. Chris Busby, who was part of the medical team the city's suffering is exceedingly worse than that suffered by Hiroshima residents as a result of the nuclear bomb.

Reports by Iraqi doctors in Fallujah revealed that the period following the US campaign on the city where phosphorous bombs were used the number of many cancer cases and congenital deformities in new births were higher in addition to a reduced number of male births compared to past rates.

It is without doubt that double standards and scale tilting is the case with lack of justice in the international community, since the US remains unaccountable considering itself above the law. In comparison with the verdict demanding the extradition of Omar Bashir by the International criminal court for his slaughtering of 3000 citizens as opposed to the 300, 000 exterminated by Bush's attacks on Iraq and the silence that followed.

Sadly the Gaza Strip has also been subjected to a criminal attack of the same nature with depleted uranium by Israel in the December 2008. Israel used the lame excuse that the US used it in Iraq why can't we? The Gaza attack was also accompanied with the overall silence of the then newly elected President-elect Barack Obama who also remained notably silent with Israel 's additional criminal actions such as the terrorist attack against the Mavi Marmara of the Freedom Flotilla which resulted in the deaths of 20 international activists and dozens of injuries. The ship was carrying humanitarian relief to the besieged Gazans and had on board many international dignitaries including professors, doctors, teachers, lawyers and members of parliament from all religions and political trends including members of Egypt 's parliament from the Muslim Brotherhood bloc.

The attacks are conducted both by Israel and the US with the excuse of combating terrorism where definitely there is a misunderstanding as to who are the terrorists and who are the victims.
