Weapons of Mass Destruction Found In Iraq!
By illegally using thousands of tons of nuclear waste in the form of armor piercing rounds, referred to as "depleted uranium" or "DU", in the invasion of Iraq, the United States and Britain have gravely endangered not only the Iraqis and their own troops, but the entire world. In the first invasion, at least 320 tons of DU were exploded into Iraq, at least 1500 tons were blasted in the second illegal invasion.
Professor Malcolm Hopper of the University of Sunderland in the U.K., who has extensively studied health effects of British and U.S. soldiers who served in the Gulf War, has indicated that as many as 21,000 U.S. Gulf War veterans have died, due not just to DU exposure but to the astounding amounts of organophosphate (OP) poisoning from various toxins (or supposedly anti-toxins) given to the troops as "preventive" medicine.
73,000+ Gulf War Vets are already dead. - Department of Veterans Affairs.
Sorry folks, we were not reading between the lines, the official report shows that more than three and a half million U.S. soldiers who partook in the Gulf war are dead or disabled! Read more... CORRECTION the official report reveals more horrifying numbers more than a million dead and disabled US troops...
"I'm horrified. The people out there - the Iraqis, the media and the troops - risk the most appalling ill health. And the radiation from depleted uranium can travel literally anywhere. It's going to destroy the lives of thousands of children, all over the world. We all know how far radiation can travel. Radiation from Chernobyl reached Wales and in Britain you sometimes get red dust from the Sahara on your car." - Dr. Chris Busby, the British radiation expert, Fellow of the University of Liverpool in the Faculty of Medicine and UK representative on the European Committee on Radiation Risk, talking about the best-kept secret of this war:
Birth defects in Iraq are up 600% (See DU Exposed Veterans Daughter for a personal perspective). A global diabetes epidemic is also being linked to DU.
American Use Of Depleted Uranium is "A crime against humanity which may, in the eyes of historians, rank with the worst atrocities of all time." US Iraq Military Vets "are on DU death row, waiting to die." - James Denver, International Reporter.
Dr. Doug Rokke talks about depleted uranium:
225,000 U.S. troops have received VA acknowledgement of service-connected sickness due to Gulf War Syndrome. 1,620,906 U.S. soldiers have filed for disability. Around 35% of U.S. troops serving in the invasion of Iraq have been injured.

In 1990, the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) wrote a report warning about the potential health and environmental catastrophe from the use of depleted uranium weapons. The health effects had been known for a long time. The report sent to the UK government warned "in their estimation, if 50 tonnes of residual DU dust remained ‘in the region’ there could be half a million extra cancers by the end of the century.". 50 ton of DU estimated to cause half a million deaths in ten years. The U.S. has shot more than 1,820 ton of DU into Iraq alone.
Considering the extraordinarily high exposure rate to U.S. troops, Iraqi's have little chance of avoiding exposure to the thousands of tons of nuclear waste the U.S. blasted into their country. Winds will spread the nuclear waste around the world. Millions will die. Wind Carries DU to UK
In 1997, while citing experiments, by others, in which 84 percent of dogs exposed to inhaled uranium died of cancer of the lungs, Dr. Asaf Durakovic, then Professor of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Georgetown University in Washington was quoted as saying, 'The [US government's] Veterans Administration asked me to lie about the risks of incorporating depleted uranium in the human body.' He concluded, 'uranium does cause cancer, uranium does cause mutation, and uranium does kill. If we continue with the irresponsible contamination of the biosphere, and denial of the fact that human life is endangered by the deadly isotope uranium, then we are doing disservice to ourselves, disservice to the truth, disservice to God and to all generations who follow.'
Ironically, the UN Resolution 661 calling for sanctions against Iraq, was signed on Hiroshima Day, August 6, 1990.
These DU weapons have released deadly, carcinogenic and mutagenic, radioactive particles in such abundance that whipped up by sandstorms and carried on trade winds, there is no corner of the globe they cannot penetrate, including Britain and the U.S. Wind has no boundaries and time is on its side. The radioactivity from the DU exploded in Iraq will last for over 4,500,000,000 years and will cause cancer, leukemia, brain damage, kidney failure, and extreme birth defects - killing millions of every age for centuries to come. A crime against humanity which may, in the eyes of historians, rank with the worst atrocities of all time.
The 30mm Avenger Cannon, a seven-barrel Gatling gun manufactured by General Electric in Burlington, Vermont, mounted for example on the nose of an A-10 Warthog aircraft, can fire as many as 3900 depleted uranium rounds per minute. Radioactive particles vaporized in the barrel when these weapons are fired will be effectively distributed over wide areas by the aircraft, including to the U.S. military base where these aircraft land and all the areas they fly.
" The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces.  Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth.  They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle.  They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people" - Revelations Chapter 9
Yet, 'officially' in the U.S. and UK, no crime has been committed. For this story is a dirty story in which the facts have been concealed from those who needed them most, in particular the veterans and people of Iraq. Mainstream media, which is largely owned by the people behind the war, is almost silent on this extraordinarily serious issue.
Nuclear waste / DU stockpiles are estimated at over 500,000 tons. Storage of the DU is extremely expensive so governments decided that it was more economical to use depleted uranium than store it. From the late 1970s, the U.S., the Soviet Union, Britain and France, began converting their stockpiles of depleted uranium into armor piercing rounds and armor. DU was used during the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, the 1991 Gulf War, the Bosnia War, the bombing of Serbia and in the Iraq War. Depleted uranium ammunition from the 1960s has been found on the Stryker firing range in Hawaii.
Depleted Uranium gets its name from the manufacturing process used to extract the isotope uranium-235 which is know as enriched uranium. Depleted Uranium is primarily composed of the isotope uranium-238. DU is used as the nuclear fuel in hydrogen bombs. Only about 10% of the nuclear power plants are designed to use DU in their reactors the other 90% must use the enriched 235 isotope. Following use in a reactor, enriched uranium is converted to DU and made into weapons because of it's extreme density. DU emits 60% of the radiation of enriched uranium and behaves in the body the same way as other uranium.
"Little Boy" the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima used 64 kg of uranium and killed approximately 140,000 people, half from the blast and half from the nuclear fallout and cancer. Unborn babies died or were born with severe deformities. From a blast perspective Little Boy was equivalent to somewhere between 13,000 tons to 16,000 tons of TNT, however, the radioactive fallout is what caused an equal or greater amount of damage. This radioactive fallout is the same as that produced from kinetic DU armor piercing rounds.
Uranium has what is known as "pyrophoric properties", that is it ignites and burns with intensive heat on impact also releasing radioactive alpha particles. The troops refer to the victims who's vehicles have been hit with DU rounds as "crispies" because the intensive heat "frys" their bodies. The uranium also combines with oxygen atoms forming clouds of toxic uranium-oxide dust, it the blast and dust does not kill, the victim is enveloped in a cloud of poisonous gas which usual kills instantly but will certainly kill over time.
When a DU armor piercing round hits its target, around half of the uranium is vaporized into smaller than five micron particles. In other words in the invasion of Iraq the United States vaporized 910 tons of radio active uranium which is equivalent to 14,218, fourteen thousand Hiroshima bombs from a radioactive fallout perspective. Calculations below:
|Nuclear Waste Vaporized in Iraq by United States of America:|
|DU in 1st Invasion of Iraq||320||ton|
|DU in 2nd Invasion of Iraq||1,500||ton|
|1,000 kg per ton (TOTAL in kg)||1,820,000||kg|
|Half uranium vaporized (1/2 TOTAL)||910,000||kg|
|Uranium used in Hiroshima's Little Boy||64||kg|
|Equivalent # of Hiroshima's in Iraq||14,218||bombs|
The vaporization of the uranium in an atomic bomb results in smaller uranium particles than in the kinetic vaporization of armor piercing rounds, however, the particles from the rounds is still smaller than five microns. In other words the uranium particles will become airborne, they will float in air.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsveld and their fellow war criminals have caused the worlds worst disaster ever.
If you are a citizen of the U.S. you too are liable - you pay taxes, you funded the war crime, just as the Germans were held liable for the countries they invaded.
The International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons consisting of 85 organizations in 22 countries have demanded an immediate ban on the production and military use of depleted uranium weapons. The European Parliament has repeatedly passed resolutions ordering an immediate moratorium on the further use of depleted uranium ammunition.
The NATO nations and permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, of France, the United Kingdom and the United States have consistently rejected calls for a ban on the use of depleted uranium in 'kinetic' weapons.

Depleted Uranium Dust - Public Health Disaster For The People Of Iraq and Afghanistan

"Vital Truths" -- - In 1979, depleted uranium (DU) particles escaped from the National Lead Industries factory near Albany, N.Y. which was manufacturing DU weapons for the U.S. military. The particles traveled 26 miles and were discovered in a laboratory filter by Dr. Leonard Dietz, a nuclear physicist. This discovery led to a shut down of the factory in 1980, for releasing more than 0.85 pounds of DU dust into the atmosphere every month, and involved a cleanup of contaminated properties costing over 100 million dollars.
