Hey, hey, USA, how many kids did you kill today? Answer: 1,000

Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) has just passed the 100 day mark of his presidency. Decent anti-racist humanitarians can ask the question: how many people have died avoidably in the Occupied Territories of the American Empire under President Obama? The answer: 180,000 including 113,000 under-5 year old infants; for details read on.
1. Annual under-5 infant deaths in Overseas American Empire. Consulting UNICEF (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry... ) we obtain the following estimates of “annual under-5 infant deaths” in the following countries subject to occupation by the US or US-backed surrogates: Occupied Afghanistan (338,000), Occupied Haiti (21,0000), Occupied Iraq (41,000)), Occupied Palestinian Territory (4,000), and Occupied Somalia (54,000), for a total of 458,000 per annum and 1,255 per day (note that this analysis ignores Occupied Diego Garcia that has been completely ethnically cleansed, partially occupied countries such as Lebanon and Syria and countries subject to ongoing US-backed wars, notably the US robot-bombed NW Provinces of Pakistan). 2. Annual avoidable annual under-5 infant deaths in Overseas American Empire.
About 90% of these under-5 infant deaths are avoidable and accordingly, “avoidable annual under-5 infant deaths” in these countries occupied by the US or by US-backed surrogates are (to the nearest thousand) : Occupied Afghanistan (304,000), Occupied Haiti (19,0000), Occupied Iraq (37,000)), Occupied Palestinian Territory (4,000), and Occupied Somalia (49,000), for a total of 413,000 “avoidable annual under-5 infant deaths” per year and 1,132 daily.
3. Annual total avoidable deaths in Overseas American Empire.
However for impoverished Third World countries – the sort of countries on whom the cowardly and racist US Establishment makes war - the “annual under-5 infant deaths” are about 0.7 of the non-violent “total annual avoidable deaths” (annual excess deaths, avoidable mortality, excess mortality, deaths that should not have happened) (see “Layperson’s guide to counting Iraq deaths”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/5872/26/ ) which accordingly are as follows in these countries occupied by the US or by US-backed surrogates: Occupied Afghanistan (483,000), Occupied Haiti (30,0000), Occupied Iraq (59,000)), Occupied Palestinian Territory (6,000), and Occupied Somalia (77,000), for a total of 655,000 non-violent avoidable deaths per year and 1,795 each day.
Since about 50% of the population of these impoverished, war -torn, US- or US-surrogate-occupied countries are Children, we can estimate that there are about 900 non-violent avoidable Child deaths every day in the Overseas American Empire. This is consonant with the above estimate of about 1,100 under-5 infant deaths daily i.e. about 1,000 kids die avoidably every day in the Overseas American Empire due to Occupier war crimes.
These horrendous death tallies arise because of gross Occupier violation of the Geneva Convention. and egregious war crimes due in part to Occupier war criminal non-supply of life-sustaining food and medical requisites demanded unequivocally by Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War – thus the Gaza Concentration Camp has been under US-backed Israeli blockade for 2 years and according to WHO the “total annual per capita medical expenditure” permitted by the Occupiers in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan is US$124 and US$29, respectively, as compared to US$6,714 for the US. About 100,000 Occupied Afghans have died non-violent avoidable deaths in the first 80 days of the Obama Administration (see Gideon Polya, “The forgotten Iraqi genocide. Iraqi cardiologist’s Speech to European Parliament”, MWC News, 4 April 2009: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/296... ; “Iraqi invasion 6th anniversary. 2.3 million Iraqi excess deaths”, MWC News, March 2009: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/293... ; and "Pro-Zionist Western Genocide Denial": http://mwcnews.net/content/view/298... ).
Of course these estimates are only of non-violent avoidable deaths – but a clue to the magnitude of the violent deaths due to US or US surrogate occupation can be gleaned from the appalling reality in Occupied Iraq in which post-invasion non-violent avoidable deaths (from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease) total 1.0 million (from UN Population Division data: http://esa.un.org/unpp/ ) and post-invasion violent deaths (from bombs and bullets) total 1.3 million (see Just Foreign Policy: http://www.justforeignpolicy.org/ir... ; for detailed discussion and documentation see “Iraq invasion 6th anniversary. 2.3 million Iraqi excess deaths“: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/293... ).
As each US war gets going throughout the Third World, decent folk around the world – and most notably decent folks in the USA - go into the streets and chant “Hey, hey, USA, how many kids did you kill today?” The answer: about 1,000.
And the answer to “Hey, hey, USA, how many folks did you kill today?” is about 1,800 (1,795 non-violent avoidable deaths each day) – every 2 days under President Barack Hussein Obama the US kills more people in the American Occupied Territories than were killed on 9-11 (and now seen to have been most likely also killed by Americans and/or their Israeli surrogates; see “Is US responsible for 9-11? Scientists find [unignited] nano-thermite [high explosive] in WTC dust”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/299... ).
On the occasion of Barack Hussein Obama’s first 100 days in office we note that 180,000 Indigenous inhabitants of America’s Overseas Empire died avoidably in this period, this horrendous death tally including 113,000 avoidable under-5 year old infant deaths.
Anyone who knowingly ignores, denies, minimizes, obfuscates, excuses, promotes or is otherwise complicit in gross abuse of children has crossed the line between decent Humanity and Nazi-style barbarity.
Further, peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Decent people must (a) inform everyone they can about this ongoing mass paedocide (mass pedocide) in the Overseas American Empire and (b) take individual and collective action through intra-national and international Sanctions and Boycotts against the individuals, corporations and countries complicit in this ongoing atrocity.
