Fallujah: A Lost Generation? by Iraqi filmmaker Furat Alani investigates the dramatic increase in cancers, birth defects, and infant mortality since the second siege of Fallujah, Iraq,in 2004 and its human rights implications. Mr. Alani interviews Fallujah residents, doctors, veterans, and weapons experts to shed light on the cause of this health crisis. More specifically, he explores the possibility that weapons used by the U.S. in 2004 are the cause, including white phosphorous, depleted uranium, and anti-personnel theromobaric weapons.
Warning: the images in this video are heart-wrenchingly, painfully graphic. You may even cry or turn away.
But in watching this video, I want you to understand the depth of the horrors the Iraqi families exposed to these weapons have endured.
And in looking at the grossly malformed babies, imagine, for one second, that one of them was your child: what would you be thinking about the people who did this to your baby?!?
