Litany Of Horror: 19 Ways Wars Harm Animals


19 ways current wars are harming animals

War is war on animals too.
1 People animals birds toads trees are killed by bombs and rockets.
2 People animals birds toads trees are blown apart by mines of war profiteers.
3 Animals die on live transport ships in wartorn ports after standing in their own waste, dying of hunger and thirst, not allowed by embargo or bombs
to disembark to their slaughter.
4 Whales, dolphins, fishes, turtles, sea birds are killed in oil spills from bombing power plants.15,000 tons of oil
have been dumped into the Mediterranean by the Israeli
bombing of a Lebanese power plant.
5 Animals die in military weapons research labs.
6 Animals die in military contract 'vaccine' research.
7 Animals are bulldozed (killed or backs broken) in zoos in wartorn areas.*
8
Animals are made minesniffers.. porpoises are electroshocked into being device carriers.
9 Animals are seized from their human 'owners', slaughtered in terror and eaten by armies.
10 Animals disoriented by bombs run away from their homes.
11 Animals are abandoned by refugees. From Iraq alone, there
are 4 million refugees from the unelected American president's violence.
12 Animals are not allowed in to all refugee camps. The US Red Cross
after a worldwide outcry re its gunbacked separation of people
from animals in Katrina and elsewhere has begun to change its rules on this.
13 Animal habitat (trees, orchards, vines, plants, watersheds) are destroyed by literal daisy cutter, bunker buster and other bombs, napalm etc.
14 Depleted uranium is giving animals as well as people
cancer,81 times the average in Baghdad.
15 Animals as well as people have died as supply convoys
were foiled by bombed roads and bridges, and as
convoys have been fired upon.
16. Some abandoned animals are left tied up without war
and are dying of thirst.
17. Motorists racing to get out of bombing areas are
mowing down goats, cats, dogs, chickens, sheep on the roads.
18. US soldiers at Dugway Proving Ground and elsewhere
are told to hunt kill and eat rabbits and other creatures.
19. American soldiers drinking have shot
tigers and lions in the Baghdad Zoo.In the war of the Israeli government against the Lebanese
people, a million animals have died in an oil spill
created by a power plant bombing. Cows have died of thirst
on boats unable to land liveshipped animals. Animals
have died as relief supplies can't get into the many crisis
areas. The Olmert regime has fired upon relief workers.

* Churchill bombed the Berlin Zoo
* The unelected US regime bombed the Baghdad Zoo
* The IDF killed many Gaza animals
bulldozing the cages while the animals
were in them.. gazelles had their
backs broken
