Depleted Uranium: slow motion mass destruction

Nuclear power plants have always faced the question of what to do with the leftovers, a toxic residue that remains lethal for tens of thousands of years. The plants tend to be close to the large population centres they serve, and the stuff must be held there or transported through high density urban areas to be isolated in someone else’s backyard at great cost and risk. Fortunately, through the wonders of science, there’s now a new use for much of our nuclear waste. It gets made into weaponry.

Depleted uranium is what’s leftover when you make enriched uranium for use in nuclear reactors. As the name suggests, it’s uranium that’s lost some of its oomph. If you happen to be exposed to it, you don’t go straight home and die. Beyond that, there is some dispute about its health implications. Scientific studies have shown that the stuff can cause mutations in DNA, a fairly good sign that it could be connected to the outbreaks of cancer that follow modern war, but the Pentagon insists its own studies show DU to be harmless. Curiously, a fact sheet for American soldiers declares it to be “one of many potentially hazardous substances that soldiers may be exposed to during deployment and combat operations”......

Interviews with Leuren Moret and Alfred Webre on International 9/11 Citizen’s War Crimes Tribunal
An unprecedented event is scheduled to take place Sunday, June 24, 2007 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, at the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Conference. At this 9/11 Conference, Independent Scientist and world-renowned Uranium Weapons radiation expert, Leuren Moret, and International Lawyer Alfred Webre, J.D., M.Ed., will be calling publicly for the establishment of an International Citizen’s 9/11 War Crimes Tribunal.

Canada offers forum for lecturer barred from U.S.:
VANCOUVER — A highly regarded Iraqi epidemiologist who wants to tell Americans about an alarming rise in cancer levels among Iraqi children will come to Canada instead because he couldn't get a visa to the United States. [Globe & Mail, April 11, 2007]

Helen Caldicott:
The Nobel Peace Prize nominee on nukes, global warming,
and why we’re closer to Armageddon than ever
Dr. Helen Caldicott has been advocating her own inconvenient truth for over a quarter-century, but her battle against nuclear power and nuclear weapons is still as controversial – and as necessary – as it has ever been. While Oscar-winning presumptive president Al Gore was still a congressman from Tennessee, and voting on what was then the largest military buildup in history, Caldicott was warning of the risks posed by both the nuclear arms race being orchestrated by the Reagan administration and the continued use of commercial nuclear power in communities around the United States.

Thwarted Warrior: Depleted uranium and the mystery of sick and dying Gulf War vets
"It's not about me," Doug Rokke said, and only reluctantly rattled off his laundry list of symptoms: fibromyalgia, broken teeth, radiation-induced cataracts, gastrointestinal pain. [The Smirking Chimp, April 11, 2007]

Livermore lab says bigger blasts would
send depleted uranium into air
TRACY - Bigger outdoor blasts proposed at an explosives test range southwest of Tracy could release up to 453 pounds of depleted uranium into the air a year, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory officials told air pollution regulators in an application last week.

The Lebanese Velvet Revolution [Global Research.ca] On Friday the first of December waves and waves of thousands of Lebanese had converged, from the four corners of Lebanon, into the capital Beirut for an anticipated long sit-in demonstration against the present government demanding the resignation of the Prime Minister Fouad Siniora and his ministers, the formation of a new more representative government, and the reforming of the country’s electoral laws. The protesters pitched tents near central Beirut’s Martyrs’ Square and on streets leading to government’s headquarters, where the Prime Minister Siniora and several of his cabinet ministers were holed up inside. They determined to sit-in as long as it takes for the government to acknowledge their demands and to resign. [November 7, 2006]

Khiam bomb crater tests positive for uranium [Yahoo News] Tests carried out on samples taken from a bomb crater in the southern region of Khiam following the summer war with Israel showed the presence of uranium, Chris Busby, the British scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, told Environment and Development magazine for its December issue.

US and Israel Targeting DNA in Gaza? The DIME Bomb: Yet Another Genotoxic Weapon, Part I [Al-Jazeerah] It’s been almost five months since the first report that Israeli drone aircraft have been dropping a “mystery weapon” on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Since then, news media around the world have run stories depicting the strange and “horrific” wounds inflicted by the new bomb. The international press has spoken with Palestinian doctors and medics who say Israel’s new device is a kind of chemical weapon that has significantly increased the fatality rate among the victims of Israeli attacks.

Gulf War veteran fights for assistance, understanding [Mohave Daily News] He grew up the only white kid on his block in a black neighborhood with a soaring homicide rate. He was robbed at gunpoint four times and dropped out of high school during his freshman year. There was little discipline at home - where he says he was both beaten and sexually molested - and he rebelled by ditching school and experimenting with drugs. No one could tell him what to do, he thought. [December 3, 2006]

Democracy, a death sentence for Afghanistan [Renew America] I recently purchased a book that deeply saddens and troubles me. The old cliché — "a picture is worth a thousand words" is applicable to this book. Many of the photos in this book are of children, orphans — made older than their tender years by the daily deprivation of essential needs. They are beautiful children with dark, poignant eyes. Most of us will never experience, during our entire lives, the death and destruction that encompasses their vulnerable existence each and every day. This is a book every American must read — “Afghanistan After Democracy”. It depicts, through pictures, the horrific results of the United States' invasion of Afghanistan. [November 29, 2006]

Dear Mr President : Thanksgiving Mea Culpas [Global Research] It occurred that at this time when Americans have celebrated with family and friends, said individual prayers of thanks for the bounties granted during the year, you might have been a bit challenged, given the gargantuan disasters and tragedies your policies have engendered. And of course a little local difficulty at the mid-term elections and growing mutterings of impeachment growing from various quarters. [November 27, 2006]

Is Depleted Uranium the suspect behind Military Suicides? [Global Research] Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has become an epidemic amongst soldiers/sailors serving and veterans who have returned from the war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. The reasons are being depicted as purely psychological, but this seems to be very misleading. [November 19, 2006]

Visiting graphic design artist illustrates war weaponry [Whitworthian] Graphic designer David Brodeur thinks his art can change someone’s perspective. “I don’t expect to change peoples mind,” Brodeur said in his presentation at the Koehler Gallery on Nov. 7. “But if I can touch one person, then I’m satisfied.” [November 14, 2006]

Military nanotechnology - how worried should we be? [Nanowerk Spotlight] All major powers are making efforts to research and develop nanotechnology- based materials and systems for military use. Asian and European countries, with the exception of Sweden (Swedish Defence Nanotechnology Programme), do not run dedicated programs for defense nanotechnology research. Rather, they integrate several nanotechnology-related projects within their traditional defense-research structures, e.g., as materials research, electronic devices research, or bio-chemical protection research. Not so the U.S. military. Stressing continued technological superiority as its main strategic advantage, it is determined to exploit nanotechnology for future military use and it certainly wants to be No. 1 in this area. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is a major investor, spending well over 30% of all federal investment dollars in nanotechnology. Of the $352m spent on nanotech by the DoD in 2005, $1m, or roughly 0.25%, went into research dealing with potential health and environmental risks. In 2006, estimated DoD nanotechnology expenditures will be $436m – but the risk-related research stays at $1m. [November 13, 2006]

Israel Detonated a Radioactive Bunker Buster Bomb in Lebanon [Global Research.ca] The special report was triggered by the radioactivity measurements reported on a crater probably created by an Israeli Bunker Buster bomb in the village of Khiam, in southern Lebanon. The measurements were carried out by two Lebanese professors of physics - Mohammad Ali Kubaissi and Ibrahim Rachidi. The data - 700 nanosieverts per hour – showed remarkably higher radiocativity then the average in the area (Beirut = 35 nSv/hr ). Successivamente, on September 17th, Ali Kubaissi took British researcher Dai Williams, from the environmentalist organization Green Audit, to the same site, to take samples that were then submitted to Chris Busby, technical adisor of the Supervisory Committee on Depleted Uranium, which reports to the British Ministry of Defense. The samples were tested by Harwell’s nuclear laboratory, one of the most authoritative research centers in the world. On October 17th, Harwell disclosed the testing results - two samples in 10 did contain radioactivity. [November 11, 2006]

How We Let Veterans Suffer In Lonely Silence [theday.com] Though the feds have spent millions of dollars and the press has devoted thousands of inches to the new Air Force Memorial in Washington, D.C., neighter shows similar concern for our needy ex-combatants. You might expect that veterans, especially afflicted ones, would be the most honored and best cared for members of society. They sacrificed while many citizens merely applauded. [November 11, 2006]

"From the melting pot of life in this free land all men and woman of all nations who come hither emerge as Americans and nothing else. They must have renounced completely and without reserve all allegiance to the land from which they or their forefathers came. And it is a binding duty on every citizen of this country in every important crisis to act solidly with all his fellow Americans, having regard only to the honor and interest of America, treating every other nation purely on its conduct in that crisis, without reference to his ancestral predilections or antipathies. If he does not act, he is false to the teachings and lives of Washington and Lincoln; he is not entitled to any part or lot in our country and he should be sent out of it." - - (Theodore Roosevelt, "The Children of the Crucible" New York, Sept. 9, 1917)
