While Dennis Kucinich is no longer a candidate for President of the United States, he remains a burr under Bush's saddle and an annoyance for fellow Democrat, John Kerry. President Bush has made the war on terror the anchor of his foreign policy, specifically focusing on the removal of dictator Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction as justification for the invasion of Iraq. Senator Kerry has experienced some problems with clarifying his stand on the war in Iraq, but his voting record shows that he voted for Bush to go to war against Iraq.
Kucinich, a multi-term Congressman from Ohio (search), raised the ugly specter of depleted uranium during his short bid as the Democratic Party's choice for President. Kucinich's web site is still up and this is the crux of the problem for Bush and Kerry. The flash presentation on Kucinich's site regarding the use of depleted uranium by American military in hot spots throughout the world, including Afghanistan and Iraq, are precisely what the Bush administration and John Kerry don't want the American people to see before the election: the horrors of war.
The suffering caused by the use of depleted uranium isn't confined to the inhabitants of the country being invaded, but also to America's military and their children. The number of babies born with horrific birth defects to soldiers of the first Gulf War are staggering and Kucinich's flash presentation shows it all.
WARNING: this five minute presentation is extremely graphic and will upset anyone viewing it.
The first minute and ten seconds of Kucinich's presentation is the standard political pitch, but the next three minutes are extremely disturbing. This message is being transmitted all across America, from VFW halls to picnics in the park and people in ever increasing numbers are watching Kucinich's flash presentation.
Americans are seeing something so frightening, both the Kerry and Bush camps want it to go away before election day. At this time, it appears that Kucinich's flash presentation, protected by the First Amendment, is going to remain on the Internet. Time will tell whether or not behind the scenes efforts are successful in getting Kucinich to remove his web site on the use of depleted uranium.
