Dr Busby; Depleted Uranium Dust From DU Weapons Travels Many Thousands of Miles Via Dust Storms, Radioactively Contaminates Civilian Towns And Cities For 4.5 Billion Years - Physicians For Social Responsibility (PSR)

URANIUM IS MINED ALL OVER THE US AND WORLD, BUT ABANDONED URANIUM MINES THEN CONTAMINATE THE DRINKING WATER AND AIR IN CITIES ALL OVER THE US


Uranium is mined to produce 'fuel' for nuclear reactors. The by product of making fuel for nuclear reactors is depleted uranium, which is then used by the military in weapons. The dust created by practicing or using these weapons then spreads all over the world, creating heavy metal radioactive poison contamination.


US MILITARY HAS USED AND STILL USES TOXIC HEAVY METAL POISON AND RADIOACTIVE DU WEAPONS AND SHELLS ALL OVER THE WORLD, AND INSIDE THE US ON TEST FIRE RANGES AND BASES


According to the Physicians For Social Responsibility; "The 1991 Persian Gulf War saw the use of advanced U.S. weaponry that devastated targets in Iraq while allowing the coalition forces to declare victory with limited military losses. Numerous developments in technology contributed to U.S. General Norman Schwarzkopf’s success, including the use of depleted uranium (DU). 

The U.S. military claims that DU used by the coalition forces secured a significant advantage over the Iraqi military. This technology has since been used in Kosovo, in Afghanistan, and again in Iraq in 2003.

When the Dust Settles

Video from http://www.bandepleteduranium.org/ - The International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW)

AFTER THESE WARS, US VETERANS STARTED GETTING SICK; IT IS NOW CALLED GULF WAR SYNDROME


Four years following the victory of the first Gulf War, the acclaim of DU evolved into controversy as thousands of U.S. and coalition forces began suffering from an array of unexplained ailments, such as impaired cognition, fatigue, muscle ache, sleep disorders, and memory loss. Critics of DU attributed the mysterious symptoms, collectively known as the Gulf War Syndrome, to the radioactivity and heavy metal poison/chemical toxicity of depleted uranium.

DUST STORMS BLOW THE DU DUST AROUND, SO THAT CIVILIANS AND US SOLDIERS BREATHE IN THE RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL POISON NANO PARTICLES



Dust storms are a regular feature of the desert, including areas where DU dust is located. Dust storms spread the DU radiation around, where it will likely be breathed into lungs of both US soldiers and civilians. Dust blows radioactive hot particles around for hundreds or even thousands of miles away from where DU weapons have been used to be inhaled and ingested by those who fired the weapons in the first place, for the next BILLION years.



RENSE; "When a DU shell is fired, it ignites upon impact. Uranium, plus traces of plutonium and americium, vaporize into tiny, ceramic particles of radioactive dust. Once inhaled, uranium oxides lodge in the body and emit radiation indefinitely. A single particle of DU lodged in a lymph node can devastate the entire immune system according to British radiation expert Roger Coghill.(7)

The Royal Society of England published data showing that battlefield soldiers who inhale or swallow high levels of DU can suffer kidney failure within days.(8) Any soldier now in Iraq who has not inhaled lethal radioactive dust is not breathing. In the first two weeks of combat, 700 Tomahawks, at a cost of $1.3 million each, blasted Iraqi real estate into radioactive mushroom clouds.(9) Millions of DU tank rounds liter the terrain. Cleanup is impossible because there is no place on the planet to put so much contaminated debris. Bush Sr.'s Gulf War I was also a nuclear war. 320 tons of depleted uranium were used against Iraq in 1991.(10) A 1998 report by the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances confirms that inhaling DU causes symptoms identical to those claimed by many sick vets with Gulf War Syndrome.(11) 

The Gulf War Veterans Association reports that at least 300,000 Gulf War I vets have now developed incapacitating illnesses.(12) To date, 209,000 vets have filed claims for disability benefits based on service-connected injuries and illnesses from combat in that war.(13) Dr. Asaf Durakovic, a professor of nuclear medicine at Georgetown University, is a former army medical expert. He told nuclear scientists in Paris last year that tens of thousands of sick British and American soldiers are now dying from radiation they encountered during Gulf War I. He found that 62 percent of sick vets tested have uranium isotopes in their organs, bones, brains and urine.(14) Laboratories in Switzerland and Finland corroborated his findings.

EVEN TESTING THE DU WEAPONS SYSTEMS RESULTS IN CONTAMINATION OF LARGE AREAS OF LAND; DUST BLOWS ALL OVER THE WORLD FROM THERE


https://twitter.com/microcarpa1/status/1126118262192742400

There are close to 1,000 US bases all over the world.

What are the odds that every one of these bases is 'testing' DU weapons, thus contaminating vast areas of the whole world? 


DU WEAPONS ARE THE RESULT OF US MANHATTAN PROJECT, TO DEVELOP RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS THAT COULD BE USED ON BATTLEFIELD AS A POISON, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT DU DOES TODAY

Angela_RAugust 15, 2015 1943 MANHATTAN PROJECT BLUEPRINT FOR DEPLETED URANIUM
In a declassified memo to General Leslie R. Groves, dated October 30, 1943, three of the top physicists in the Manhattan Project, Dr James B Conant, A H Compton, and H C Urey, made their recommendation, as members of the Subcommittee of the S-1 Executive Committee, on the ‘Use of Radioactive Materials as a Military Weapon’:

"As a gas warfare instrument the material would be ground into particles of microscopic size to form dust and smoke and distributed by a ground-fired projectile, land vehicles, or aerial bombs. In this form it would be inhaled by personnel. The amount necessary to cause death to a person inhaling the material is extremely small … There are no known methods of treatment for such a casualty … it will permeate a standard gas mask filter in quantities large enough to be extremely damaging."

"To be used in this manner, the radioactive materials would be spread on the ground either from the air or from the ground if in enemy controlled territory. In order to deny terrain to either side except at the expense of exposing personnel to harmful radiations … Areas so contaminated by radioactive material would be dangerous until the slow natural decay of the material took place … for average terrain no decontaminating methods are known. No effective protective clothing for personnel seems possible of development. … Reservoirs or wells would be contaminated or food poisoned with an effect similar to that resulting from inhalation of dust or smoke." (Back in 1943 they may not have known the horrifying radiation effects.)

PSR SAYS DU SHOULD NOT BE USED BY MILITARY AT ALL, BY ANY COUNTRY


PSR has long argued that DU should not be used by the military until sufficient health and environmental studies on the use of Depleted Uranium have been done to prove that it can be used safely by U.S. service personnel. We also call for clean-up of affected sites, both training ranges in the United States, and battlefields from Bosnia to Afghanistan, via Iraq, where DU has been used extensively.

Below PSR provides resources to learn about DU and its affects; to take action on pending legislation in Congress and to conduct follow-up research to learn about the issue in depth. PSR staff and physicians have worked to produce our new issue brief, an excellent summary of the issues surrounding the use of DU by the military, which you can read here."

DR SAVABIESFAHANI REPORTS THAT MANY AREAS OF FALLUJAH AND BASRA ARE CONTAMINATED WITH LEAD AND MERCURY, IONIZING RADIATION,  DUE TO US BOMBINGS AND INVASION


Via Nick November 18, 2015 "Dr Savabieasfahani explained that her research proves areas of Fallujah, as well as Basra, "are contaminated with lead and mercury, two highly toxic heavy metals", from US bombings in 1991 and during the 2003 invasion. "Exposure to metals, as well as to ionizing radiation, can lead to cancer," she added.

She said that, when the DU munitions explode or strike their targets, they generate "fine metal-containing dust particles as well as DU-containing particles that persist in the environment. These particles can enter the food chain and enter the human body via contaminated food. Toxic particles can also become airborne with the wind and be inhaled by the public. Iraq is prone to frequent sand and dust storms. Continuous public inhalation of toxic materials can lead to cancer. Ingested or inhaled particles that emit alpha radiation can cause cancer."
http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2013/03/2013315171951838638.html

Like other radioactive heavy metal poisons, DU cycles through humans, via food, water and air breathed in.


This is a reason why much of the Mid-East is ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to GMI.


DEPLETED URANIUM DUST CAN THROW RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL HOT NANO PARTICLES FROM THE EXPLOSION UP TO 26 MILES AWAY, AND THAT IS WITHOUT THE HELP OF A DUST STORM


Depleted uranium is a delayed response weapon which burns its way through tank armor and oxidizes, throwing radioactive particles as far away as 25 miles. When ingested, these particles cause chemical and radioactive damage to the bronchial tree, to kidneys, liver and bones, causing somatic and genetic trauma. Cancer often results.

Iraq and Yugoslavia are template wars, blueprints for future imperial wars -- targeting the total of a society -- military, civilians, the unborn, the infrastructure, the ecology, the health and spirit of a people. These wars even overflow against the troops that fight them. 90,000 American Gulf War veterans are now chronically ill. A U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs study of 251 veteran's families in Mississippi shows that 67% had children with severe illnesses or birth defects

The high-density bullet is made of low-level radioactive waste left over from manufacturing nuclear fuel and bombs. DU bullets were designed in the 1970s to defeat top-line Soviet tanks. Some 20 nations now keep the world's best armor-piercing rounds in their arsenals. First used in combat during the Gulf war, they proved to be unmatched tank slayers. (A Pentagon official points to one other benefit: the US can give away its 1.2 billion pound stockpile of radioactive waste to weapons manufacturers.) When DU smashes into a hard target, it pulverizes into breathable dust that remains radioactive for 4.5 billion years. American nuclear scientists have found that DU dust can travel at least 26 miles. Scientists of the National Institute for Health Protection in Macedonia detected eight times higher than normal levels of alpha radiation -- the primary type emitted by DU -- in the air during the air war. Yugoslav soldiers have found DU rounds in Bujanovic in the south, and a Swiss-led international team found "serious radioactivity" when it dug up many rounds at a radio tower near Vranje. A confidential preliminary UN report leaked in May 1999, as the bombing continued, did not mince words: "This type of ammunition is nuclear waste, and its use is very dangerous and harmful," it said. After NATO released its figures, the UN recommended that "measures should be taken to prevent access." For Kosovars, like Iraqis, such warnings may be too late.

ICE CAP ARCHEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE PROVES THAT EVEN HEAVY METAL POISON ELEMENTS SUCH AS LEAD CAN TRAVEL MANY THOUSANDS OF MILES WITH NO HELP FROM HUMANS AT ALL


ICE CAP SHOWS ANCIENT MINES POLLUTED THE GLOBE – THE NEW YORK TIMES
OCTOBER 7, 2016 A GREEN ROAD DAILY NEWS

Samples extracted from Greenland’s two-mile-deep ice cap yield evidence that ancient Carthaginian and Roman silver miners working in southern Spain fouled global atmosphere with lead for some 900 years; scientists in Australia and France, using exquisitely sensitive techniques to measure four different isotopes of lead in Greenland ice, determine that most of man-made lead pollution of atmosphere in ancient times had come from Spanish provinces of Huelva, Seville, Almeria and Murcia; isotropic analysis clearly points to rich silver-mining and smelting district of Rio Tinto near modern city of Nerva as main polluter; map (M)

Depleted Uranium: Horror from America
He is 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: the fact that by illegally using hundreds of tons of depleted uranium (DU) against Iraq, Britain and America have gravely endangered not only the Iraqis but the whole world.

For these 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. For the wind has no boundaries and time is on their side: the radioactivity persists for over 4,500,000,000 years and can 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.

These weapons have released deadly, carcinogenic and mutagenic, radioactive particles in such abundance that there is no corner of the globe they cannot penetrate - including Britain. Yet, officially, 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. It is also a story we need to know if the people of Iraq are to get the medical care they desperately need, and if our troops, returning from Iraq, are not to suffer as terribly as the veterans of other conflicts in which depleted uranium was used.

POISON RADIOACTIVE DU DUST DOES NOT GO AWAY OR DISAPPEAR; IT JUST BLOWS AROUND AND STAYS RADIOACTIVELY HOT AND ACTS AS A HEAVY METAL RADIOACTIVE POISON FOR 4.5 BILLION YEARS


As an Army health physicist, Dr. Doug Rokke was dispatched to the Middle East to salvage DU-contaminated tanks after Gulf War I. His Geiger counters revealed that the war zones of Iraq and Kuwait were contaminated with up to 300 millirems an hour in beta and gamma radiation plus thousands to millions of counts per minute in alpha radiation. Rokke recently told the media: "The whole area is still trashed. It is hotter than heck over there still. This stuff doesn't go away."(19) 

DU remains "hot" for 4.5 billion years. Radiation expert Dr. Helen Caldicott confirms that the dust-laden winds of DU-contaminated war zones "will remain effectively radioactive for the rest of time."(20) The murderous dust storms which ensnared coalition troops during the first few days of the current invasion are sure to have significant health consequences.

DU USED IN DOWNTOWN BAGHDAD, SPREAD RADIOACTIVE DUST ALL OVER CITY


War today means contaminating huge cities and towns for a million years with radioactive heavy metal poisons. Long after the wars are forgotten, humans will continue to suffer and die from DU poisons.

Both DU and conventional bombs were dropped on major cities in Iraq and other countries. How can you tell when a DU weapon explodes, compared to a conventional bomb?

A DU bomb or weapon releases burning depleted uranium, which 'sparkles' or scintillates in the explosion. Watch the above video and notice which explosions are DU and which ones are conventional bombs.

Depleted uranium particles "(produced after shock) burn in contact with air and produce “scintillations”", according to physicist Paolo Scampa.

Got insanity?

DU WEAPONS USED ON GAZA BY ISRAEL, POISONING CITY FOR A MILLION YEARS WITH RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL POISON DUST



Hours after a Grad rocket fired from Gaza exploded north of Beersheba, the army targeted four suspected terror sites in air strikes in Gaza. Again, it is easy to see the Israeli air force using DU weapons, which will poison this area for a billion years and spread toxic heavy metal and radioactive dust all over the region.

SUMMARY

There is no healthy way to conduct war and use DU as part of it. Even building it into airplanes as counterweights means that hazardous radioactive contamination will take place as planes crash and burn. DU deserves no place in the world, just because of the risk of radioactive contamination.

Using DU for weapons is about as insane as setting off nuclear weapons in a global nuclear war, in order to save the world. Yes, you may win the war, but you lose all life on the planet.

The only countries unwilling to ban DU weapons globally are the US, France, Israel and Germany.




ART AND MUSIC ACTIVISM

The world is descending into the dark abyss of hate and fear. The repercussions of this hate will continue for a BILLION YEARS, due to DU poisoning and radioactive contamination of the entire world. The result is constant and never ending SORROW, GRIEF AND SUFFERING for seven future generations, times 100 million.
