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

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
“Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns
in foreign policy.” Henry Kissinger as quoted in the book
“Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POW’s in
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!!!
In much love,
