"Undeclared Nuclear War, the Allies' Crime Continues": #DepletedUranium use by U.S and Israel since Iraqi Freedom

To be honest you should me more upset that we use this shit because it slowly kills our boys because they breath in the dust when firing the projectiles and our leaders never tell them that it is killing them.


[–]Flimflamm 8 points  
I mean, it kills 'our boys' and it kills 'their boys' too, and their children, for generations... That's why it's not moral to use.


[–]Silver_Freak 2 points  
Cant disagree with that

Hah yeah. I remember reading about US marines in Iraq coming back sterile, and thinking "Shooting blanks in the military?! Oh the irony!"

You only get the dust in the impact area of the round. Don't investigate your kills and you are golden.

Pretty sure expended UR rounds in ground can interfere with growing crops and what not yeah?" Go to: https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/5u4ber/us_admits_using_toxic_depleted_uranium_against/

Quote; "More than 5,000 rounds of depleted uranium (DU) ammunition were used in two attacks on Islamic State oil tankers in eastern Syria, the US military has confirmed. The US-led coalition previously pledged it would not use the controversial ordnance.
A spokesman for the US Central Command (CENTCOM) told Foreign Policy that 5,265 armor-piercing DU rounds were used in November 2015, during two air raids against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) oil tanker convoys in the Deir ez-Zor and Hasakah provinces in eastern Syria.
A-10 ground attack aircraft fired the projectiles from their 30mm rotating cannons, destroying about 350 tanker trucks, according to CENTCOM spokesman Major Josh Jacques." Go to: https://www.rt.com/usa/377345-depleted-uranium-isis-syria/ For full article and Russia Today report on video.


Quote;  " Israel used “a new type of weapon”, a senior official at the Syrian military facility that came under attack from the Israeli Air Force told RT.
“When the explosion happened it felt like an earthquake,” said the source, who was present near the attack site on the outskirts of Damascus on Sunday morning.
“Then a giant golden mushroom of fire appeared. This tells us that Israel used depleted uranium shells.”

Depleted uranium is a by-product of the uranium enrichment process that creates nuclear weapons, and was first used by the US in the Gulf conflict of 1991. Unlike the radioactive materials used in nuclear weapons, depleted uranium is not valued for its explosiveness, but for its toughness – it is 2.5 times as dense as steel – which allows it to penetrate heavy protection.
Countries using depleted uranium weapons insist that the material is toxic, but not dangerously radioactive, as long as it remains outside the body.
The source also claims the attack – if it managed to hit the objects it targeted – served more of a political than a military purpose.
“Several civilian factories and buildings were destroyed. The target was just an ordinary weapons warehouse. The bombing is an ultimatum to us – it had no strategic motivation*.” Go to: https://bsnews.info/israel-used-depleted-uranium-shells-in-air-strike-syrian-source/ For full article.

Quote: "Barbarism"? When ones allies are apparently using nuclear weapons (an international war-crime),on the poorest of the poor? When one is knowingly allowing the people of that country no aid and succor in order to cover up the crime? When one has oneself already perpetrated nuclear war by using weapons and ordnance manufactured using the toxic by-products of the industry required to manufacture nuclear weapons to bank-roll ones war for dwindling non-renewable resources (the consequences of which one has consistently conspired to ensure are never reported in the mainstream media)? See; "Depleted Uranium "The Progressive Review" Go to: https://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/depleted-uranium-progressive-review.html & "Editorial Balance (re: Syria and the use of W.M.Ds)" Go to: https://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/editorial-balance-resyria-and-use-of.html
(Nb. The subject of the  "Black" and "Grey" Flagging of events including the use of chemical agents and other munitions on the Syrian population is a complicated one I do not intend to investigate here -although it lurks somewhere in the miasma-, however like 9/11 the evidence is stacking up and again it doesn't look good)

None of which even bears on the subject of a narrative that consistently ignores the constraints of international law, flagrant hypocrisy such as; “we have to insist that all parties recognize a common humanity and that nations end proxy wars that fuel disorder,” Barack Obama, and the countless instances where it has been The Coalition that has been creating the collateral damage."

Quote; "imagine many tons* of a very heavy highly radioactive metal being discharged and dispersed into a local environment in which it can particulate in the most efficient manner possible.
Then imagine this particulate dust being thrust into the Northern Tropical or Sub-Tropical Jetstreams by desert storms (I'm told such things occur).
Then as all this uranium and plutonium ("for it is I Great Plutocrat!"), is circling the Earth and as it does so (falling slowly back to Earth finally to be released over N.W Europe -ie. Britain, The North Sea and Norway for instance-), squeezing, contracting and distorting both The Earth's Magnetosphere (-Edit 15/03/11- "Astrotometric" correlation -see ref: to "Astrotometry" below- The Magnetoshphere is described as an "interactive" boundary http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetosphere ), and it's geology.
Squeezing and contracting until..."Pop! Crunch!"...the pressure is released and WHAM a huge tsunamic event occurs in Sumatra!"... 
..."*Regardless of the precise figures involved it is my belief that particulate D.U, behaving in the manner I have described, was responsible for the deaths of 250,000 people.

"At NATO headquarters in Brussels, Britain and the US joined forces to kill off an Italian proposal, backed by Germany, for the alliance's 19 member countries to stop using depleted uranium ammunition until further notice . . . Malcolm Hooper, emeritus professor of medicinal chemistry at Sunderland University, described the Ministry of Defence move as a "cynical betrayal" and "vicious injustice." The MoD, he said, was testing for high-level exposure to soluble material, rather than long-term, low-level, exposure to radiation inside the body. It was indulging in "Mickey Mouse science". GUARDIAN" From "Depleted Uranium; Stories From The Archives of The Progressive Review" (go to http://www.prorev.com/du.htm )
When I met David (a British corporal), then recently returned from Iraq ( who had been working in bomb disposal in Basra immediately following the taking of the city), he told me that apart from having to dispose of both bombs and body parts on a daily basis he had seen vehicles (against which D.U munitions had been used), which had been politely cordoned off with yellow "crime-scene" tape. We looked at each other and laughed...
..("..and if we knew why the bowl of petunias -did- that we would know a lot more about the Universe than we do at the moment.").
He told me, "I'll go anywhere else but I won't go back to Iraq, it's a mad- house!"

I am also aware that earlier readers (ie. prior to this edit), may have wondered whether I believe that depleted uranium alone was responsible for the Sumatran tsunami. The answer is no I don't, I see it more as the straw the broke the back of the poor camel that had little chance of passing through "The Eye of The Needle" in the first instance!
By which I mean that as a final component of the "unholy synergism" which also includes; nuclear testing, nuclear power, particle beam research, fusion power research (and if Steven.J.Smith is to be believed possibly also "Seismic Weapons" testing), d.u dispersal in the way I have described can be seen as providing the trigger event which caused the Sumatran disaster."
