“Must read” article! The long lasting and horrific legacy of DU:
January 7, 2018 Pam Vernon
Think about some 450,000 military and civilians who have been rotated from America to Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo and other areas where Depleted Uranium Weapons were utilized. Imagine that the U.S. Government KNEW of the RADTriage dosimeter and cost of $20.00 even when the older models were brought out. Some SEALS and special ops units were provided no doubt with smaller and cheaper models which sold for perhaps $10.00 and registered similarly from 1-50 RADS.
NOW let me tell you a story: Once upon a time in America, the military males decided to use Depleted Uranium Weapons in battle on several fronts. The reason for using the DU Weapons was no force on earth had such a devistating weapons which would penetrate a tank or armored vehicle and make all occupants crispy critters in an instant killing everyone in the opposing group’s armored vehicles.
A NEW WEAPON DEVELOPED WITH DEPLETED URANIUM which would leave particles with a half life of perhaps 4.5 Billion Years. America and the Allies took great pleasure in the FIRST GULF WAR and SECOND GULF WAR which is still ongoing so very pleased at the fact that the so called terrorists and enemy did not have such a weapon of mass destruction which would not only destroy military personnel and weapons but be guaranteed to contaminate the entire country where the weapons were dispersed with little or no casualties to American or Allied Forces.
Military and Civilians rotated into the area without RADTriage dosimeters or any type of dosimeter took their posts as good American Combat and Support men and women thinking IF the DU was dangerous UNCLE would protect the U.S. Forces and others volunteering from Allied Forces or Civilian units in the United States. Little did all humans realize that the Military Powerful stayed many thousands of miles away commanding operations which contaminated many Nations and could spread this contamination to the rest of the World. Some civilians called for the United Nations to intervene and use the Security Council to STOP America and Allied forces to the United States from using DU weapons. Many prayed for the UN to step in and hear from two senior citizens who tried to ask for 10 minutes to appear at the UN at their own costs without payment from the United States Government or anyone!
Those brave military and civilians serving one full year IN COUNTRY with DU Weapons and DU Particles contaminating the Air, Earth, Animals, Birds, Fowl, Pets, Humans, plus Water would find by dedicated specialists from France and the United States such as Doctor Moret and Doctor Rokke that the entire areas are HOT with radiation and exposure was unknown levels for the first 450,000 brave American’s serving their President.
