Rudd Australia Report Card #3. Australian complicity in continuing Afghan genocide

Rudd Australia Report Card #3. Australian complicity in continuing Afghan Genocide

Preamble

Decent anti-racist, pro-Peace, pro-Environment, pro-Humanity, pro-Planet Australians were pleased to see the victory of the Australian Labor Party under Kevin Rudd in the recent Australian Federal Elections (24 November 2007) and the substantial Australian Greens vote which assisted that victory and which will restore sensible public review of public policy in the new Senate.

The Australian Government under PM Rudd was sworn in on Monday 3 December, 2007 – Day 1 of Rudd Australia. Kevin Rudd has made it clear that he favours “measurement-based policy” and “evidence-based policy” and has further asked his colleagues to give him Report Cards on progress.

I applaud this approach as a senior scientist committed to rational risk management that successively involves (a) accurate data, (b) scientific analysis and (c) systemic change to minimize risk (for a detailed. Expert exposition see Professor James Reason, “Human error: models and management”, British Medical Journal, vol. 320, 768-770, 2000: http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/320/7237/768 . Indeed as a responsible public service I have committed a lot of time and effort to informing governments, media and fellow citizens about important matters.

Dated 19 December 2007, this is the THIRD of a series of carefully researched and edited “Rudd Australia Report Cards” that I will be sending to the Rudd Government and to media and fellow citizens (see Rudd Australia Report Card #1 Continued Australian and US Coalition war crimes in Occupied Iraq: http://ruddaustraliareportcard.blogspot.com/2008/01/rudd-australia-report-card-1-continued.html and Rudd Australia Report Card #2 Climate criminal Australia and climate genocide: http://ruddaustraliareportcard.blogspot.com/2008/01/rudd-australia-report-card-2-climate.html . I am very happy for anyone to re-publish these “Rudd Australia Report Cards” with attribution in the interests of Australia and Humanity.

Post-invasion NON-VIOLENT excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan - a month on from the 6th anniversary of the war criminal US invasion and occupation on 7th October 2001 – totalled an estimated 3.2 million. However comparisons with Occupied Iraq (1.5-2 million TOTAL post-invasion excess deaths, and 0.8-1.2 million or about 50% of these being VIOLENT deaths) suggest that the post-invasion VIOLENT excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan could total 3 million and accordingly that TOTAL post-invasion Afghan excess deaths could be as high as 6 million. In addition, to 3-6 million post-invasion Afghan excess deaths in the Occupied Afghan Territories, post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 2.2 million and refugees total 4 million (2005 population: 27 million) (for a detailed, documented analysis see “US Alliance Afghan Genoicde – Six million excess deaths?”: http://www.countercurrents.org/polya081107.htm ).

AUSTRALIA is clearly COMPLICIT in an Afghan Holocaust that also constitutes an Afghan Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention (see: http://www.geocities.com/englishgateway/genocide.html ) : "In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; "(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group."

AUSTRALIA is part of a war criminal US Alliance that only permits a “total annual per capita medical expenditure” in Occupied Afghanistan of US$19 (2004; see World Health Organization, WHO: http://www.who.int/en/ ) – as compared to $135 (Occupied Iraq), $2,560 (Occupier UK), $3,123 (Occupier Australia), $3,173 (Occupier Canada) and $6,096 (Occupier US).

In this context it is important to note that of 6 million Jews who died in the horrendous Jewish Holocaust in World War 2 an estimated 1 million died avoidably (non-violently) from deprivation as opposed to being violently killed (see Gilbert, M. (1969), Jewish History Atlas (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London);

Gilbert, M. (1982), Atlas of the Holocaust (Michael Joseph, London); “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/1375/247/ and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ )).

AUSTRALIA is involved in WAR CRIMES in Occupied Afghanistan due to resolute, sustained, deliberate, intentional non-supply of life-sustaining requisites unequivocally demanded of Occupiers by Articles 55 and 56 in particular of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War (see: http://www1.umn.edu/humanrts/instree/y4gcpcp.htm ):

Article 55

To the fullest extent of the means available to it the Occupying Power has the duty of ensuring the food and medical supplies of the population; it should, in particular, bring in the necessary foodstuffs, medical stores and other articles if the resources of the occupied territory are inadequate.

The Occupying Power may not requisition foodstuffs, articles or medical supplies available in the occupied territory, except for use by the occupation forces and administration personnel, and then only if the requirements of the civilian population have been taken into account. Subject to the provisions of other international Conventions, the Occupying Power shall make arrangements to ensure that fair value is paid for any requisitioned goods.

The Protecting Power shall, at any time, be at liberty to verify the state of the food and medical supplies in occupied territories, except where temporary restrictions are made necessary by imperative military requirements.

Article 56

To the fullest extent of the means available to it, the Occupying Power has the duty of ensuring and maintaining, with the cooperation of national and local authorities, the medical and hospital establishments and services, public health and hygiene in the occupied territory, with particular reference to the adoption and application of the prophylactic and preventive measures necessary to combat the spread of contagious diseases and epidemics. Medical personnel of all categories shall be allowed to carry out their duties.

If new hospitals are set up in occupied territory and if the competent organs of the occupied State are not operating there, the occupying authorities shall, if necessary, grant them the recognition provided for in Article 18. In similar circumstances, the occupying authorities shall also grant recognition to hospital personnel and transport vehicles under the provisions of Articles 20 and 21.

In adopting measures of health and hygiene and in their implementation, the Occupying Power shall take into consideration the moral and ethical susceptibilities of the population of the occupied territory.

Those directly responsible for these huge crimes are the Mainstream media and politicians of White Australia – our citizens in general and our defence personnel in particular are ethical and responsible but essentially all Australian citizens and voters are being cruelly deceived by racist, lying Mainstream media and politicians.

DETAILED ANALYSIS

The racist, war criminal US military state that they “don’t do body counts” of Indigenous victims but publicly-accessible UN demographic data allow us to ESTIMATE the carnage as outlined systematically below.

1. Post-invasion non-violent Afghan excess deaths total 3.2 million

Consult UNICEF (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/afghanistan_statistics.html ) and you will find the estimate that 370,000 under-5 year old infants die each year in Occupied Afghanistan. From an exhaustive country-by-country analysis of excess death (avoidable death, death that should not have happened) it can be determined that for impoverished, worst case Third world countries the under-5 infant deaths are about 0.7 of total non-violent excess deaths (see “A Layperson’s Guide to counting Iraq deaths”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/5872/26/ ). Accordingly we can estimate that total post-invasion non-violent excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan after 6.1 years of war total 370,000 x 6.1 / 0.7 = 3.2 million.

2. Post-invasion violent Afghan excess deaths estimated at 3 million

Assuming roughly 1 violent death for every non-violent avoidable death (roughly as in US-occupied Occupied Iraq where the ratio of violent deaths to non-violent excess deaths is 0.8-1.2 million to 0.7-0.8 million; see below) yields an estimate of post-invasion VIOLENT excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan of 3.2 million or roughly 3 million.

3. Total post-invasion total violent and non violent Afghan excess deaths total 3-6 million

From the data in #1 and #2, the total violent and non-violent post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan total 3.2 million + 3.2 million = 6.4 million excess deaths - more than the number of Jews who died in the World War 2 Jewish Holocaust (6 million) or the number of Bengalis who died in the man-made, WW2 Bengali Holocaust, the WW2 Bengal Famine in British-ruled India (4 million victims; accompanied by horrendous civilian and military sexual abuse of starving women and girls; associated with a 1940s demographic deficit of over 10 million in Bengal; possibly due to a deliberate British “scorched earth policy” to prevent Japanese invasion of India; and rubbed out of British history books) (see “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability”: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ and Mason, C. (2000), A Short History of Asia. Stone Age to 2000AD (Macmillan, London)).

Because the war criminal Americans “don’t do body counts” we can conservatively estimate TOTAL post-invasion total violent and non violent Afghan excess deaths as above at 3-6 million.

Occupied Afghanistan is indeed the 21st century Auschwitz of the racist, war criminal US Alliance countries – the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Japan and NATO countries such as France and Germany are complicit in these estimated 3-6 million post-invasion violent and non-violent excess Occupied Afghan deaths.

4. US Alliance and Australian complicity in 2.0 million avoidable Occupied Afghan post-invasion under-5 infant deaths

Consult UNICEF (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/afghanistan_statistics.html ) and you will find the estimate that 370,000 under-5 year old infants die each year in Occupied Afghanistan and that post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 6 x 0.37 million = 2.2 million . Of these infant deaths 90% - i.e. 2 million - can be estimated to be avoidable and due to US Alliance war crimes as outlined in the Preamble above).

5. Occupied Afghanistan refugees total about 4 million

The latest estimates from UNHCR are that there are about 3 million external Afghan refugees (see: http://www.unhcr.org/home/PUBL/474ac8e00.pdf ); in 2001 there were 2 million “internal refugees” (see: http://wwww.reliefweb.int/rw/rwb.nsf/db900sid/VBOL-6DUHNY?OpenDocument ) . Assuming 50% post-2001 rehabilitation of internal refugees, one obtains an estimate of about 4 million Afghan refugees in total.

6. Horrendous Occupied Afghan perinatal maternal deaths (3 per hour) and infant deaths (1 per minute) – can Australian WOMEN ignore this?

The following estimates are updated from “American war crimes. Mass murder of Afghan women & children” (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/12741/42/ ), the primary data deriving from the latest UNICEF data for Afghanistan (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/afghanistan.html ) :

Annual births (2005): 1,441,000;

Annual under-5 infant deaths (2005): 370,000;

Population (2005): 29,863,000;

Population under-5 (2005): 5,535,000;

Annual under-5 death rate 6.68%;

Under-5 infant deaths over 6.1 years of occupation: 2.2 million;

Avoidable under-5 infant deaths: 90% of 2.2 million = 2.0 million.

The Maternal Mortality Ratio is the annual number of deaths of women from pregnancy-related causes per 100,000 live births. The “Reported” column figures from UNICEF show country Reported figures that are not adjusted for underreporting and misclassification; the Adjusted Maternal Mortality Ratio values are adjusted for such underreporting and misclassification:

Reported Maternal Mortality Ratio (2000): 1,600 per 100,000 live births;

Adjusted Maternal Mortality Ratio (2000): 1,900 per 100,000 live births;

Annual Maternal Deaths: 1,600 x 1,441,000/100,000 = 23,056

Adjusted Maternal Deaths: 1,900 x 1,441,000/100,000 = 27,379

A Maternal Mortality rate of 27,379/year means 75/day or 3.1/hour.

An under-5 infant death rate of 370,000/year means 1014/day or 42 per hour or nearly one infant dying every minute.

7. Occupied Iraq post-invasion excess deaths, under-5 infant deaths and refugees total 1.5-3 million, 0.6 million and 4.5 million, respectively

The following estimates are discussed and documented in detail in “Rudd Australia Report Card #1 Continued Australian and US Coalition war crimes in Occupied Iraq” : http://open.newmatilda.com/crosswire/?p=142 .

Recent authoritative estimates of violence-related post-invasion excess deaths in occupied Iraq are of 1.2 million (from the expert UK ORB polling company) and 0.8 million (from the top US Bloomberg School of Public Health group at Johns Hopkins University who estimated 0.6 million violent deaths as of July 2006).

Authoritative estimates of non-violent post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied Iraq as of November 2007 are of 0.7 million (from the latest UN Population Division data) and of 0.8 million (calculated from United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, data on post-invasion under-5 year old infant deaths; for impoverished Third World countries the under-5 infant deaths are about 0.7 of the total excess deaths, as described in “A Layperson’s Guide to counting Iraq deaths”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/5872/26/ ).

From this one can estimate total post-invasion violent and non-violent occupied Iraqi excess deaths and these clearly range from 0.7 million + 0.8 million = 1.5 million (minimum estimate) to 0.8 million + 1.2 million = 2.0 million (upper estimate) (see “Iraq: Genocide by all definition. Bush’s Iraq War. 2 million Iraqi excess deaths”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/17066/42/ ).

UNHCR estimates that there are currently about 4.5 million Iraqi refugees (see: http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/10/23/news/UN-GEN-UN-Iraq-Refugees.php )

8. Post-invasion excess deaths in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories total 4.5-8.4 million, about 5-8 million

Adding the data in #3 and #7 indicate excess deaths in Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories totalling 4.5-8.4 million i.e. roughly 5-8 million - but this of course is NOT reported by racist, lying, holocaust-ignoring Australian or Western mainstream media or politicians of the Western Murdochracies.

9. The BIG PICTURE: Australian complicity in 11 million excess deaths in the Bush I plus Bush II US Asian wars

The estimate in #8 climbs steeply if we add the retrospectively Bush I- and Bush II-complicit excess deaths in Israel’s US-backed wars and occupations of Lebanon (1978-2007; 70,000) and of the Occupied Palestinian Territories (1967-2007; 0.31 million); the US Gulf War (1990-1991; 0.2 million); the US Sanctions War (1990-2003; 1.7 million); and the about 0.5 million who have died avoidably since 9/11 from opiate drug-related causes due to the UK-US restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from about 5% of world market share in 2001 to a current 93% (see UN Office on Drugs and Crime, UNODC, 2007 World Drug Report: http://www.unodc.org/unodc/world_drug_report.html and “United State Terrorism. 8 million deaths & media holocaust denial”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/17139/42/ ) -. all of this yielding 2.8 million excess deaths, which plus 8.4 million excess deaths for post-invasion Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan yields an estimate of 11.2 million excess deaths associated with the Bush Asian Wars.

10. The even BIGGER PICTURE: Australian complicity in 25 million excess deaths in post-1950 US Asian wars

Australia is a loyal lackey of the US and has participated in all post-1950 US Asian wars. Indigenous Asian excess deaths in the various wars total 1 million (Korea), 13 million (Indo-China) and 11.2 million (the Bush I plus Bush II Asian Wars) yielding a total of 25.2 million or about 25 million. This horrendous death toll is roughly equivalent to excess deaths due to the Nazis in their occupation of Poland (6 million) and the Soviet Union (20 million) in World War 2 (total excess deaths in these 2 countries 26 million).

A major cause of the NON-violent deaths is gross Occupier violation of the Geneva Convention that demands unequivocally that an Occupier “to the fullest extent of the means available to it” supplies life-sustaining medical and food requisites to its conquered subjects (see Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to the protection of civilian persons in time of war: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/92.htm ). Consult WHO (see: http://www.who.int/en/ ) and you will discover that the “annual total per capita medical expenditure” permitted in Occupied Iraq by the US Coalition is $135 (2004) as compared to $19 (Occupied Afghanistan), $2,560 (UK), $3,123 (Australia) and $6,096 (the US) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/17139/42/ ).

It gets worse. I am currently working with a fellow Australian academic on a book project about the wider global impact of the Iraq War. In short, 16 million people die avoidably each year (9.6 million of them under-5 year old infants) due to deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease (see “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ and http://mwcnews.net/content/view/1375/247/ ). The accrual cost of the 21st century part of the Bush Wars has been estimated at $2.5 trillion by the US 2001 Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Joseph Stiglitz (Columbia) and his Harvard colleague Professor Linda Bilmes (see “Iraq: the hidden cost of the War”: http://www.newstatesman.com/200703120024 and “The Cost of War”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/13099/26/ ). This horrendous distortion translates into huge avoidable infant deaths in the US alone (an estimated 160,000 such under-5 year old avoidable American infant deaths in 8 years of the Bush II Administration).

There has clearly also been a big distortion by the Bush War on Terror in relation to matters such as global militarization, foreign aid, Third World debt relief, increased oil prices, biofuel expansion, decreased global food, increased global food prices, and failure to address global warming – all of these areas contributing to16 million global avoidable deaths each year on Spaceship Earth with the First World in charge of the flight deck and Bush II at the controls.

Australia’s appalling position as the world’s #1 developed country in terms of “annual per capita CO2 pollution” (in 2004 40 tonnes per person per year as compared to 4.2 (the World), 4 (China), 1 (India) and 0.25 (Bangladesh) already makes Australia heavily complicit in ongoing climate genocide (see: Rudd Australia Report Card #2 Climate criminal Australia and climate genocide: http://open.newmatilda.com/crosswire/?p=143 ).

11. History ignored yields history repeated, genocide ignored yields genocide repeated, silence kills and silence is complicity & 9/11 LIES

People such as myself with family members killed in the Jewish Holocaust are absolutely OBLIGED to speak out about horrendous abuses of humanity. We regard the primary messages from the Jewish Holocaust as zero tolerance for racism and human rights abuse. History ignored yields history repeated, genocide ignored yields genocide repeated. Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity – we MUST speak out.

Holocaust ignoring by Mainstream media and politicians has allowed continuation of the Palestinian Genocide, the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide – post-invasion excess deaths 0.3 million, 1.5-2 million and 3-6 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million, 0.6 million and 2.2 million, respectively; refugees totalling 7 million, 4.5 million and 4 million, respectively, out of (2005) populations of 3.8 million, 27 million and 26 million, respectively.

Indeed similar lying by omission allowed Australian complicity in the Bougainville Genocide (an upper estimate 15,000 deaths out of a population of about 150,000 people) and the continuing Australian Aboriginal Genocide (9,000 Indigenous Australian avoidable deaths annually; 90,000 avoidable Indigenous Australian deaths during the 11 years of the Coalition Government) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/15960/42/ , http://mwcnews.net/content/view/10865/26/ and http://mwcnews.net/content/view/12578/42/ ).

I am assured by a top Japanese scholar that his Japanese colleagues overwhelmingly agree that the US forced war criminal, militarist Japan into war and deliberately permitted Pearl Harbor to happen.

The ostensible excuse for the invasion of Afghanistan was 9/11 – and yet NO Afghans were involved even on the admissions of the Bush Administration. Top European officials with close intelligence links have made it quite clear that they reject the “official 9/11 story” of the egregiously dishonest and corrupt Bush Administration. Thus the US “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” (see: http://st911.org/ ) adduce a mass of technical evidence consistent with explosive demolition of the twin Towers and the WTC7 building and hence with US involvement.

Top German politician, former Defence Minister and head of the German Secret Service, Andreas von Bulow has listed the following causes of 9/11 (his views in parentheses): (1) out of the blue terrorist attack (Bush Story #1; very implausible); (2) terrorist attack enabled by extraordinary and comprehensive FBI, CIA, USAF incompetence (Bush Story #2; very implausible); (3) attack carried out, like Pearl Harbor, with passive US complicity (i.e. the US Government allowed it to happen; more likely); and (4) an inside job involving US Government elements and /or US surrogates (e.g. the Israelis) (most likely – and consistent with the extraordinary attempts of the US Government to prevent the truth of 9/11 emerging) (see: http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2006/210406runattack.htm ).

General Leonid Ivashov, Chief of Staff of the Russian Armed Forces has stated, like Andreas von Bulow, that 9/11 required the expert involvement of a major intelligence agency (see: http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=NIM20060123&articleId=1788 ) , this being utterly inconsistent with the Bush Administration “men in caves” scenarios (#1-#3 above).

In November 2007, the former 7-year-term Italian President Francesco Cossiga, law professor, Italian senator for life and major intelligence insider (close involvement on setting up the NATO Gladio terrorist organization) stated in an interview with the leading Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera that (a) the US CIA and Israeli Mossad did 9/11 and (b) major intelligence services were well aware of this (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francesco_Cossiga and http://mwcnews.net/content/view/18569/26/ ).

As discussed in great detail in Rudd Australia Report Card #1 Continued Australian and US Coalition war crimes in Occupied Iraq: http://open.newmatilda.com/crosswire/?p=142 , the expert judgement about the real reasons for the Iraq Invasion are for oil and strategic hegemony. However we were LIED to by the Bush-ites with utterly false claims about Iraqi responsibility for 9/11, Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction etc.

Notwithstanding the finding by a US National Intelligence Estimate, that represents the consensus view of all 16 American spy agencies, that Iran stopped any plans for developing nuclear weapons in 2003 (see: http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/12/03/america/cia.php ) , Racist Zionist-beholden Bush America and Racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel are STILL threatening to devastate remote, peaceful, non-invading, non-occupying, non-threatening, non-nuclear armed, theocratically-dominated democratic Iran (population 70 million, half of them children and three quarters Women and Children).

12. What can Australia and the world do?

One hopes that the above statistics might SHAME Rudd Australia into dissociating itself completely from both the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide.

Australia’s continuing racist and genocidal involvements in both the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide invite Sanctions and Boycotts as were successfully applied to the racist but non-genocidal Apartheid South African régime.

Perhaps the best advice about how the World can stop these proto-Nazi, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, racist, Bush-ite war-mongers is that given by outstanding, conservative American economist, writer, editor, academic and “Father of Reaganomics” Dr Paul Craig Roberts (see: http://www.counterpunch.org/roberts02122007.html ), QUOTE :

“Dump the Dollar! How the World can stop Bush … If the rest of the world would simply stop purchasing US Treasuries, and instead dump their surplus dollars into the foreign exchange market, the Bush Regime would be overwhelmed with economic crisis and unable to wage war ...The demise of the US dollar is only a question of time. It would save the world from war and devastation if the dollar is brought to its demise before the Bush Regime launches its planned attack on Iran.”

and (from Paul Craig Roberts “The Iraqi Genocide”: http://www.counterpunch.org/roberts10162007.html ),

“The Iraqi Genocide … When the US dollar loses its reserve currency status, the US empire will come to an abrupt end. Sooner or later the rest of the world will realize this and, in an act of self-protection, dethrone the dollar.”

SUMMARY

People such as myself with family members killed in the Jewish Holocaust are absolutely OBLIGED to speak out about horrendous abuses of humanity. We regard the primary messages from the Jewish Holocaust as zero tolerance for racism and human rights abuse. History ignored yields history repeated, genocide ignored yields genocide repeated. Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity – we MUST speak out.

Post-invasion NON-VIOLENT excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan - a month on from the 6th anniversary of the war criminal US invasion and occupation on 7th October 2001 –totalled an estimated 3.2 million. However comparisons with Occupied Iraq (1.5-2 million TOTAL post-invasion excess deaths, and 0.8-1.2 million, or about 50% of total deaths, being VIOLENT deaths) suggest that the post-invasion VIOLENT excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan could total 3 million and accordingly that TOTAL post-invasion Afghan excess deaths could be as high as 6 million. In addition to 3-6 million post-invasion Afghan excess deaths in the Occupied Afghan Territories, post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 2.2 million and refugees total 4 million (2005 population: 27 million).

Holocaust ignoring and lying by omission by Mainstream media and politicians has allowed continuation of Rudd Australia involvement in various ways in the continuing Palestinian Genocide, the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide – post-invasion excess deaths 0.3 million, 1.5-2 million and 3-6 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million, 0.6 million and 2.2 million, respectively; and refugees totalling 7 million, 4.5 million and 4 million, respectively, out of (2005) populations of 3.8 million, 27 million and 26 million, respectively.

Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. One hopes that the above statistics might SHAME Rudd Australia into dissociating itself completely from both the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide. Australia’s continuing racist and genocidal involvements in both the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide invite Sanctions and Boycotts as were successfully applied to the racist but non-genocidal Apartheid South African régime.
