DEPLETED URANIUM:
56% of soldiers who served in Gulf War now have medical problems

You will quickly recognize this information as the same that you have read over and over in your local newspaper. And heard over and over on the TV news.

What? You haven't seen this in your local paper? It hasn't been on the TV news? How could that be? It is widely discussed in other parts of the world. Italy, for instance, just reported that 109 of the Italian troops stationed in Iraq have already died from depleted uranium poisoning.

But in the United States, the horrific, continuous use of DEPLETED URANIUM in Iraq and Afghanistan is censored. With rare exception, you read nothing about it in the papers and hear nothing about it on the TV news. In fact, DEPLETED URANIUM was selected as one of the top ten censored stories in the U.S. media last year.

Is this important? Not only is it essential that we know that our troops are being intentionally nuked and that many 10s of thousands of Iraqi men, women and children are going to die from this ghastly situation, but we are soon likely to have a UNIVERSAL DRAFT in America. It probably will be in effect by mid-2005. It will force our young men and women to enter the military and many will be sent to Iraq, Afghanistan and to whatever additional areas that Mr. Bush decides to invade.

THESE ARE OUR CHILDREN ! THEY ARE GOING TO BE ROUNDED UP AND SENT TO IRAQ!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE....... SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. WE CAN'T ALLOW THE MEDIA TO PREVENT US FROM KNOWING THAT OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING INTENTIONALLY MURDERED IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN !!!!

Thoughts by David J. Smith The following is a report by Leuren Moret, a geoscientist who has worked around the world on radiation issues, educating citizens, the media, members of parliaments and Congress and other officials. She became a whistleblower in 1991 at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab after experiencing major science fraud on the Yucca Mountain Project. She is an environmental commissioner in the City of Berkeley.


The Report:

Vietnam was a chemical war for oil, permanently contaminating large regions and countries downriver with Agent Orange, and environmentally the most devastating war in world history. But since 1991, the U.S. has staged four nuclear wars using DEPLETED URANIUM weaponry, which, like Agent Orange, meets the U.S. government’s definition of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Vast regions in the Middle East and Central Asia have been permanently contaminated with radiation.

What about our soldiers? Terry Jemison of the Department of Veterans Affairs reported in August 2004 that “Gulf-era veterans” now on medical disability since 1991 number 518,739 - with only 7,035 men reported wounded in Iraq in that same 14-year period. In August 2004 the American Free Press dropped a surprise on the Pentagon by reporting that eight out of twenty men who served in one unit in the 2003 U.S. military offensive in Iraq now have malignancies. That means that 40% of the soldiers in that unit have developed malignancies in just 16 months.

Since these soldiers were exposed to vaccines and depleted uranium ONLY, this is strong evidence for researchers and scientists working on this issue – that depleted uranium IS the definitive cause of Gulf War Syndrome. Vaccines are not known to cause cancer. One of the first published researchers on Gulf War Syndrome, who also served in 1991 in Iraq, Dr. Andras Korenyl-Both, is in agreement with Barbara Goodno from the Department of Defense’s Deployment Health Support Directorate, that in this war soldiers were not exposed to chemicals, pesticides, biological agents or other suspect causes which tend to confuse the issue as to why our soldiers are getting sick.

This powerful new evidence is blowing holes in the cover-up perpetrated by the Pentagon and three presidential administrations ever since depleted uranium was first used in 1991 in the Persian Gulf War. Fourteen years after the introduction of depleted uranium on the battlefield in 1991, the long-term effects have revealed that depleted uranium is a DEATH SENTENCE and very nasty stuff.

Scientists studying the biological effects of uranium in the 1960s reported that it targets the DNA. Marion Fulk, a nuclear physical chemist retired from the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab and became formally involved with the Manhattan Project, interprets the new and rapid malignances in soldiers from the 2003 war as “spectacular … and a matter of concern.”

This evidence shows that of the three effects which depleted uranium has on biological systems – radiation, chemical and particulate – the particulate effect from nano-size particles is the most dominant one that can be found immediately after exposure and targets the MASTER CODE in the DNA. This is bad news, but it explains why depleted uranium causes a myriad of diseases which are difficult to define. In simple words, depleted uranium “trashes the body.” When asked if the main purpose for using it was for destroying things and killing people, Marion Fulk was more specific: “I would say that it is THE PERFECT WEAPON FOR KILLING LOTS OF PEOPLE.”

Soldiers developing malignancies so quickly since 2003 can be expected to develop multiple cancers from independent causes. This phenomenon has been reported by doctors in hospitals treating civilians following NATO bombing with depleted uranium in Yugoslavia in 1998-1999, and the U.S. military invasion of Iraq using depleted uranium for the first time in 1991. Medical experts report that this phenomenon of multiple malignancies from unrelated causes has been unknown until now and is a new syndrome associated with internal depleted uranium exposure.

Just 467 U.S. personnel were wounded in the three-week Persian Gulf War in 1990-1991. Out of 580,400 soldiers who served in Gulf War I, 11,000 are dead, and by the year 2000 there were 325,000 on permanent medical disability. This astounding number of disabled vets means that a decade later, 56% of those soldiers who served now have medical problems. The number of disabled vets reported up to the year 2000 has been increasing by 43,000 every year. Brad Flohr of the Department of Veterans Affairs said that he believes there are more disabled vets now than after World War II.

Not only were soldiers exposed to depleted uranium on and off the battlefields, but they brought it home. Depleted uranium in the semen of soldiers internally contaminated their wives, partners and girlfriends. Tragically, some women in their 20s and 30s who were sexual partners of exposed soldiers developed endometriosis and were forced to have hysterectomies because of health problems.

In a group of 251 soldiers from a study group in Mississippi who had all had normal babies before the Gulf War, 67% of their post-war babies were born with severe birth defects! They were born with missing legs, arms, organs or eyes or had immune system and blood diseases. In some veteran’s families now, the only normal or healthy members of the family are the children born before the war.

The Department of Veteran’s Affairs has stated that they do not keep records of birth defects occurring in families of veterans. HOW DID THEY HIDE IT?

Before a new weapons system can be used, it must be fully tested. The blueprint for depleted uranium weapons is a 1943 declassified document from the Manhattan Project.

Harvard President and physicist James B. Conant, who developed poison gas in World War I, was brought into the Manhattan Project by the father of former presidential candidate in 2004, John Kerry. Kerry’s father served at a high level in the Manhattan Project and was also a CIA agent.

Conant was chair of the S-1 Poison Gas Committee, which recommended developing poison gas weapons from the radioactive trash of the atomic bomb project in World War II. At that time, it was KNOWN that radioactive materials dispersed in bombs from the air, from land vehicles or on the battlefield produced very fine radioactive dust which would penetrate ALL protective clothing, any gas mask or filter or the skin. By contaminating the lungs and blood, it could kill or cause illness very quickly.

They also recommended it as a PERMANENT terrain contaminant, which could be used to destroy populations by contaminating water supplies and agricultural land with the radioactive dust.

The first depleted uranium system was developed for the Navy in 1968. Depleted uranium weapons were given to and used by Israel in 1973 under U.S. supervision in the Yom Kippur war against the Arabs.

The Phalanx weapons system, using depleted uranium, was tested on the USS Bigelow out of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in 1977. Depleted uranium weapons have been sold by the U.S. to 29 countries.

Military research report summaries detail the testing of depleted uranium from 1974-1999 at military testing grounds, bombing and gunnery ranges and civilian labs under contract. Today, 42 states have contamination from manufacture, testing and deployment of depleted uranium.

Women living around these facilities have reported increases in endometriosis, birth defects in babies, leukemia in children and cancers and other diseases in adults. Thousand of tons of depleted uranium weapons tested for decades by the Navy on four bombing and gunnery ranges around Fallon, Nevada, is no doubt the cause of the fastest growing leukemia cluster in the U.S. over the past decade. The military denies that depleted uranium is the cause. The medical profession has been active in the cover-up – just as they were in hiding the effects from the American public – of low level radiation from atmospheric testing and nuclear power plants. A medical doctor in Northern California reported being trained by the Pentagon with other doctors, months before the 2003 war started, to diagnose and treat soldiers returning from the 2003 war for mental problems ONLY.

Medical professionals in hospitals and facilities treating returning soldiers were threatened with $10,000 fines if they talked about the soldiers or their medical problems. They were also threatened with jail.

Reporters have also been prevented access to more than 14,000 medically evacuated soldiers flown nightly since the 2003 war began in C-150s from Germany, who are brought to Walter Reed Hospital near Washington, D.C.

How was the truth about depleted uranium hidden from military personnel serving in successive depleted uranium wars? Before his tragic death, Senator Paul Wellstone informed Joyce Riley, R.N., B.S.N., executive director of the American Gulf War Veterans Association, that 95% of Gulf War veterans had been recycled out of the military by 1995. Any of those continuing in military service were isolated from each other, preventing critical information from being transferred to new troops. The “next depleted uranium war” had already been planned when President Bush came into office, and those planning it wanted no one to expose it. The U.S. has a depleted uranium secret that it does not want to get out.

A new book just published, “The High Priests of War,” details the early plans for a war against the Arab world by Henry Kissinger and others in the late 1960s and early 1970s. That just happens to coincide with getting the depleted uranium “show on the road,” and the oil crisis in the Middle East, which caused concern to President Nixon. The British had been plotting and scheming for control of the oil in Iraq for decades.

The book details the creation of the neo-conservatives by their “godfather” and Communist Leon Trotsky lover Irving Kristol, who pushed for a “WAR AGAINST TERRORISM” long before 9/11 and was lavishly funded for years by the CIA. His son, William Kristol, is one of the most influential men in the United States behind the scenes. Both are public relations men for the Israeli lobby’s neo-conservative network, with strong ties to Rupert Murdoch. Kissinger also has ties to this network and to the Carlyle Group, who, one could say, has facilitated these omnicidal wars beginning from the time former President Bush took office. It would be easy to say that we are recycling World Wars I and II, with practically the same faces running the show.

When I asked Vietnam Special Ops Green Beret Captain John McCarthy who could have devised this omnicidal plan to use depleted uranium to destroy the genetic code and genetic future of large populations of Arabs and Moslems in the Middle East and Central Asia where most of the world’s oil deposits are located, he replied: “It has all the handprints of Henry Kissinger.”

In Zbignew Brzezinski’s book, “The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives,” the map of the Eurasian chessboard includes four regions strategic to U.S. foreign policy. The “South” region corresponds precisely to the regions NOW contaminated permanently with radiation from U.S. bombs, missiles and bullets made with thousands of tons of depleted uranium.

A Japanese professor, Dr. K. Yagasaki, has calculated that 800 tons of depleted uranium is the atomicity equivalent of 83,000 Nagasaki bombs. The U.S. has used more depleted uranium since 1991 than the atomicity equivalent of 400,000 Nagasaki bombs. That equals four nuclear wars, and 10 times the amount of radiation released into the atmosphere from atmospheric testing!

No wonder our soldiers, their families and the people of the Middle East, Yugoslavia and Central Asia are sick. And what about American veterans becoming sicker than ever? But as Henry Kissinger said after Vietnam when our soldiers came home ill from Agent Orange: “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used for foreign policy.”

Unfortunately, more and more of those soldiers are men and women with brown skin. And unfortunately, the depleted uranium radioactive dust will be carried around the world and deposited in our environments just as the “smog of war” from the 1991 Gulf War was found in deposits in South America, the Himalayas and Hawaii.

In June 2003, the World Health Organization announced in a press release that GLOBAL CANCER RATES will increase 50% by 2020. What else do they know that they aren’t telling us? I KNOW THAT DEPLETED URANIUM IS A DEATH SENTENCE … for ALL of us. We will all die in silent ways!

That is, if Jesus does not intervene in world affairs!!!

Matthew 24:21-22

In much love,
