[abidemir] Depleted Uranium: A Scientific Perspective //DU PROFITS
Maybe abortion/ AIDS/ malaria/aerosols/pharma represent more effective tools for the population
control guys and would rank higher ...SO FAR; but my money is on DU in the long run.
life over a billion years...now appearing in
and soon to be star attraction in IRAN. Of 697,000 US soldiers in Gulf War I.. 250,000
are collecting PTSD benefits, and another 250,000 have filed but have been denied,
for ~improper paperwork~..eg., use of the term
Gulf War syndrome....which, of course, does not exist....or claims of "burning semen"
...a non-existant "disorder"..these guys are usually referred to mental health 'professionals'
depleted uranium can't hurt you
..'cause it's "depleted"..I am told...trouble is, it's 88% as radioactive as the original.
(what a propaganda coup by the population control guys...calling it "depleted"
...and referring any who question that it's safe to shrinks) Where' s "our" media?
the bought and paid for
D.C. whores on this?
We have sent way more than 697,000 to IRAQ this time around , and the level of D.U. present
about 2000% of what was there in 1991..... what will it be after IRAN is
70% of Iraqi births since 1992 are abnormal; a million Iraqi's, mostly kids, are not alive today
the unpardonable sin of being born an Iraqi, and as
George Galloway points out, they died before they even knew that they were Iraqis...
I'm not big on Bible, especially Old Testament...but check Isaiah 1:21-24..
Isaiah 1:21 How the faithful city has become a prostitute! http://bible.cc/isaiah/1-21.htm
...for an uncanny description of the mess we're in. (And since I have Bible pages open,
may as well throw in http://bible.cc/ezekiel/39-12.htm which describes a nuclear holocaust

of course was written 2700 trs ago-- strange---maybe EZ39:1 offers
Over half of America's homeless are veterans. I ask you...if ex-college professors, or lumberjacks,

not there be an outcry

Depleted Uranium: A Scientific Perspective
An Interview With LEUREN MORET, Geoscientist
Interview Conducted By W. Leon Smith and Nathan Diebenow
Leuren Moret is a geoscientist who works almost around the clock educating citizens, the media, members
of parliaments and Congress and other officials on radiation issues. She became a whistleblower in 1991
at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab after witnessing fraud on the Yucca Mou ntain Project.
She is currently working as an independent citizen scientist and radiation specialist in communities around
the world, and contributed to the U.N. subcommission investigating depleted uranium.
According to Wikipedia online encyclopedia, Moret testified at the International Criminal Tribunal
for Afghanistan in Japan in 2003, presented at the World Depleted Uranium Weapons Conference
in Hamburg, Germany, and spoke at the World Court of Women at the World Social Forum in Bombay,
India, in January 2004.
ICONOCLAST: What are the latest developments with reducing depleted uranium exposures
on U.S. troops?
MORET: A young veteran named Melissa Sterry of Connecticut has introduced a bill into the
Connecticut Legislature requiring independent testing of returning Afghan and Gulf War veterans
going back to 2001. She said that she did it because she’s sick, and her friends are dead,
and that’s from serving in the 2003 conflict. I have been following the bill and talking to her.
Yesterday, she testified twice at the United Nations. I said, "Why don’t we get this bill all
over the U.S. in state legislatures because it informs the public and get the local media to cover it."
The U.S. has blocked any accountability at international and national levels.
There’s a total cover-up just like with Agent Orange, the atomic veterans, MKULTRA,
the mind control experiments the CIA did. This is more of the same, but the issue is much,
much worse because the genetic future of all those contaminated is effected. Now vast regions
around our world, as well as our atmosphere, are contaminated with the depleted uranium.
They’ve used so much. It’s the equivalent number of atoms, as the Japanese professor calculated it,
to over 400,000 Nagasaki bombs that has been released into the atmosphere.
That’s really an underestimate.
I went to Louisiana in April. I was invited to speak at the University of N ew Orleans for three days.
One of the veterans asked me to be in their April 19 protest and rally through
the City of New Orleans. He took the Connecticut bill straight to the Legislature,
and he got two legislators to sponsor it, and he said, "Just whiteout the name ‘Connecticut’
and write in ‘Louisiana’ on the bill." You’re not going to believe it. It passed 101 to 0 yesterday
in the Louisiana House.
I want you to write about it because we want it (the DU testing bill) in Texas.
Nevada is going to introduce it. Congressman Jim McDermott is going to put it into
the Washington legislature. We want to get the governor of Montana to do it because
he’s the first governor to demand his National Guard be returned. I think half of them are back.
He said, "I need them in the state." The DU issue is just really, really, really, really so awful.
I don’t think there’s any greater tragedy in the history of the world in what they’ve done.
ICONOCLAST: Is there a danger of depleted uranium, being used in weaponry over there,
spreading by air over here?
MORET: The atmosphere globally is contaminated with it. It’s completely mixed in one year.
I’m an expert on atmospheric dust. I’m a geoscientist, a geologist, and that’s what I studied
and did my research on. It’s really a fascinating subject. We have huge dust storms that are
a million square miles and transport millions of tons of dust and sand every year around the world.
The main centers of these dust storms are the Gobi Desert in China, which is where the Chinese
did atmospheric testing, so that’s all contaminated with radiation, and it gets transported right
over Japan, and it comes straight across the Pacific and dumps all its sand and dust on the U.S.,
North America. It’s loaded with radioactive isotopes, soot, pesticides, chemicals, pollution –
everything is in it -- fungi, bacteria, viruses.
The Sahara Desert is another huge dust center, and it goes up all over Europe and straight across
the Atlantic, to the Caribbean, and up the East Coast. Of course, you get it in Texas with
those hurricanes. They all originate in the Sahara Desert.
The third region is the Western United States, which is where the Nevada test site is located.
We did 1,200 nuclear weapons tests there, so all this radiation that is already there,
which is bad enough, has caused a global cancer epidemic since 1945. All of that radiation
was the equivalent of 40,000 Nagasaki bombs. We’re talking about 10 times more.
In April of 2003, the World Health Organization said they expect global cancer rates
to increase 50 percent by the year 2020.
Infant mortality is going up again all over the world. This is an indicator of the level
of radioactive pollution.
When the U.S. and Russia signed the partial test ban treaty in 1963,
the infant mortality rate started dropping again, which is normal. Now they are going up again.
It’s the global pollution with this radiation.
ICONOCLAST: I had one of our correspondents send me a series of photographs
of the Al-Asad dust storm in Iraq on April 28.
MORET: That dust is what I’m talking about.
ICONOCLAST: In the picture you can see a gigantic wall of sand.
MORET: I have 16 pictures of that storm. They’re posted with photos from Iraqi doctors
of the children of people with cancer and leukemia. So what did you think of that dust storm?
ICONOCLAST: I thought it was really dramatic.
MORET: It remobilizes all the radiation, but those are the larger chunks.
The DU burns at such high temperatures. It’s a pyroforic metal which means it burns.
The bullets and big caliber shells are actually on fire when they come out of the gun barrel
because they are ignited by the friction in the gun barrel. Seventy percent of the DU metal
becomes a metal vapor. It’s actually a radioactive gas weapon and a terrain contaminant.
I’ll email you the URL of the 1943 memo to General Leslie Grove under the Manhattan Project.
It’s the blueprint for depleted uranium.
They dropped the atomic bombs, but they did not use the DU weapons because
they thought they were too horrific.
I’ve toured and gone all over Japan with a pediatrician in Basra and an oncologist, a cancer specialist.
These poor doctors -- their whole families are dying of cancer. He has 10 members of his family
with cancer now that he’s treating, and this is just from Gulf War I.
They’ve used much, much, much more in 2003. A ll over the whole country.
ICONOCLAST: What can soldiers expect when they come home?
MORET: If they were in Bradley Fighting Vehicles, they’re coming home with rectal cancer
from sitting on ammunition boxes. The young women are reporting terrible problems
with endometriosis. That’s the lining of the uterus malfunctioning, and they just bleed
and bleed and bleed. Some of them have uterine cancer -- 18 and 19 and 20 year olds.
The Army will not even diagnose it. They send them back to the battlefields.
They won’t treat them or diagnose them. A group of 20 soldiers pushed from Kuwait
to Baghdad in 2003 in all the fighting. Eight of those 20 soldiers have malignancies.
ICONOCLAST: Does exposure to depleted uranium effect their psychological background
when they come home?
Lung cancer rates, according to Swartz in earlier post , are running 6 times ahead
of last year in USA; could they be higher in England, also? Beware the needle, Mudville Rose
U.S. WEAPONS POISON EUROPE
RADIATION FROM IRAQ WAR DETECTED IN UK ATMOSPHERE
By Leuren Moret
Updated March 4, 2006
A shocking new scientific study by British scientists Dr. Chris Busby and Saoirse Morgan asks:
"Did the use of uranium weapons in Gulf War II result in the contamination of
High levels of depleted uranium (DU) have been measured in the atmosphere in Britain,
transported on air currents from the Middle East and Central
Asia. Scientists cited the U.S.
bombing of Tora Bora, Afghanistan in 2001 and the "Shock andAwe" bombing during Gulf War II
in Iraq in 2003 as one of the main reasons.
In the 1950s the British government had established an air monitoring facility at the Atomic Weapons
Establishment (AWE) in Aldermaston to measure radioactive
emissions from British
nuclear power plants and atomic weapons facilities.
Ironically, AWE was taken over three years ago by Halliburton,
which at first refused to release key data as required by law to Busby.
An international expert on low-level radiation, Busby serves as an official advisor on several
British government committees. He recently co-authored an independent report on low-level
radiation with 45 scientists with the European Committee on Radiation Risk (ECRR)
for the European Parliament.
Busby was eventually able to get Aldermaston's air monitoring data from Halliburton by filing
a freedom of information request using a new British law that became effective Jan. 1, 2005.
Critical data from 2003 was missing, however, so he had to obtain the information from
the Defence Procurement Agency.
Aldermaston is one of many nuclear facilities throughout Europe that regularly monitor atmospheric
radiation levels transported by sand, dust storms and air currents from radiation sources
in North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.
After the "Shock and Awe" campaign in Iraq in 2003, very fine particles of depleted uranium
were captured along with larger sand and dust particles in filters in Britain.
These particles travelled in seven to nine days from Iraqi
battlefields as far away as 2,400 miles.
The radiation measured in the atmosphere quadrupled within a few weeks after the beginning
of the 2003 campaign, and at one of the five monitoring
locations, the levels twice required an
official alert to the British Environment Agency.
In addition, according to Busby, the Aldermaston air monitoring data provided a continuous record
of depleted uranium levels in Britain from other recent wars.
Extensive video news footage of the 2003 Iraq war, including Fallujah in 2004, provided evidence
that the United States has illegally used depleted uranium munitions on civilian populations.
These military actions are in direct violation of not only international conventions but also violate
U.S. military law because the United States is a signatory to The Hague and Geneva conventions and
the 1925 Geneva Gas Protocol.
Depleted uranium weaponry meets the definition of a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) in two
out of three categories under U.S. Code Title 50, Chapter 40 Sec. 2302. After action mandates
have also been violated such as U.S. Army Regulation AR 700-48 and TB 9-1300-278, which
requires treatment of radiation poisoning for all casualties,
including enemy soldiers and civilians.
In the mainstream press, British officials have attempted to counter the study by blaming the elevated
uranium levels on "local sources." Anonymous statements by government scientists used by the media
thus far, however, have been contradicted by evidence disclosed
in the report.
Naturally occurring uranium in the crust of the Earth is only 2.4 parts per million and could not become
concentrated to the high levels measured in Britain. As far as nuclear power plants are concerned,
the lowest levels of uranium measured at monitoring stations around Aldermaston were actually taken
at the facility, which designs and tests nuclear weapons -- meaning
this could not possibly be a source.
Atomic weapons facilities would be more likely to produce plutonium contamination,
which was not reported as a contaminant.
This wasn't the first time a noted scientist has discussed
global pollution from the use of DU.
Dr. Keith Baverstock, an expert on radiation, exposed a World Health Organization (WHO) cover-up
on depleted uranium. Baverstock leaked an official WHO report that he had written for the organization
but was never published. He warned in the report about the
environmental contamination from tiny
DU particles formed from U.S. munitions.
In addition, Dr. Katsuma Yagasaki, a Japanese physicist at the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa,
estimated that the atomic equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs has been released into
the global atmosphere since 1991 from the use of DU munitions.
He said it is mixed in the atmosphere in one year.
As if Busby's report is not bad enough, a new book by a leading scientist notes who is making billions
from nightmare armaments.
Dr. Jay Gould revealed in his book The Enemy Within that the British royal family privately owns
investments in uranium holdings worth over $6 billion through Rio Tinto Mines in Australia.
The mining company was formed for the British royal family in the late 1950s by Roland Walter
"Tiny" Rowland, who was known as the queen's banker and the master financial manipulator behind
billionaire Robert Maxwell's fortune.
The Rothschilds are also profiting enormously from their control of the price and supply
of uranium globally.
The ubiquitous Halliburton just recently finished construction of a 1,000-mile railway from the mining
area to a port on the north coast of Australia to transport the
The queen's favorite American buccaneers, Dick Cheney and the Bush family, are tied to her through
uranium mining and the shared use of DU munitions in the Middle
East, Central Asia and Kosovo.
The role that such diverse groups and individuals -- as the Carlyle Group, George H.W. Bush,
former Carlyle CEO Frank Carlucci, Los Alamos and Livermore labs, and U.S. and international
pension fund investments -- have played in proliferating
depleted uranium weapons is not well known.
God save the queen from her complicity in turning planet Earth into a death star.
Leuren Moret is an international expert on the environmental effects of depleted uranium
and has worked at two U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories.
