Whereas, a wide variety of marine mammals have already died due to Navy Warfare Testing of Weapons currently underway in the Hawaiian Islands, the Mariana Islands, the Pacific Ocean off the coastline of Oregon, Washington, Southern California, and other areas where testing is now conducted in both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans;
Whereas, the Navy proposes to expand its NWT Range Complex warfare testing range to encompass more land areas of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California and the Pacific Ocean;
(http://www.nwtrangecomplexeis.com/Documents.aspx Navy Environmental Impact Statement)
Whereas, many chemicals, like depleted uranium, used in this program are toxic to humans, marine mammals, all wildlife, and birds; Whereas, the Navy has violated NEPA laws by not informing the majority of the citizens of the United States about this program;
Whereas, the Navy admits that there are severe declines in some marine mammal populations;
Whereas, the Navy will “take”, harm, maim or kill approximately 2.3 million marine mammals per year over five years;
Whereas, the Navy will disrupt the fishing and whaling tourist industry near some of their weapons test areas in the Pacific Ocean;
Whereas, there are sensitive marine areas in the Pacific Ocean which need to be preserved and protected;
Whereas, airborne sky obscurants like toxic fog oils, red phosphorus, white phosphorus (which is toxic to both humans and marine life), and other military test chemicals can drift and contaminate ocean and land areas;
Whereas, bomb blasts in the Pacific Ocean, and sonic booms over land areas could trigger earthquakes (sonic booms have caused damage to homes in the past, in California and other states).
I feel that animal abuse and neglect should stop. Please sign this to stop animal abuse and neglect as well. Helpless animals get killed daily from abuse, or people stop feeding their animals, which also kills them. I feel that animals have got to stop dieing for no reason.
Old age, natural causes, we can't control those. But we can help prevent animal abuse and neglect, with your help. Please help.

Killing innocent civilians have always been 'fair play' for sick LTTE Tamil terrorists since the beginning of the conflict in Sri Lanka, particularly just after suffering a setback at the hands of the Sri Lankan army. The most recent cases being when they exploded a massive truck bomb killing over 100 people and injuring over 1000 in Colombo on 31 Jan 1996, soon after loosing control of Jaffna peninsula and exploding another massive truck bomb and shooting unarmed security guards killing 12 civilians on 15 October 1997, just as they were loosing the battle to halt the Sri Lankan army clearing a land route to Jaffna peninsula.
These are some of the other instances where LTTE has killed innocent civilians after suffering a setback.

We believe that drug war prisoners are political prisoners, that drug laws are repressive and counterproductive, that drug laws strike at the heart of our constitutional system, depriving American citizens of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and that "drug problems" should be dealt with by treatment, not incarceration.
