Global Nuclear Genocide? Women Say No

Comment by Larry Ross, March 2, 2006

The U.S. has used depleted uranium (D.U.) weapons in 4 wars (see below).
Britain and other members of U.S. military alliances have been complicit in D.U. usage and aware of the low-level radiation effects.

D.U. microscopic particles have been spread by air currents to Europe and Britain. It has a half life of 4,500,000,000 years, so can continue to spread over coming decades and centuries.. It can infect people with a
number of fatal diseases as the following articles show, slowly killing or incapacitating many of them. It lasts forever and there is no cure.

Using such weapons is an attack on all humanity and all nations, as the particles will drift around the world forever.

U.S. governments have known about these effects from the beginning of their use, and countless experts have warned them and continue to warn them about the effects. So far the U.S. has continued to use this slow D.U.
weapons nuclear genocide, while publicly claiming there are no bad after effects. Yet their veterans hospitals are filled with thousands of dying and diseased ex-soldiers who have been victims of close contact with D.U.weapons
use. So the evidence is before the Bush regime and they are deliberately pretending it is something else or does not exist.

It is an epidemic - a slow motion nuclear genocide, spread by the U.S. with D.U. nuclear weapons.
As an epidemic, it is far more important, more lethal and long-lasting than Avian Flu.

It is very, very urgent that the rogue Bush regime and it's allies in this massive crime be stopped before they destroy all of us and our world.

Unlike Avian Flu, the D.U. epidemic could be stopped in an hour if the Bush regime had the will to correct this outrage.

Women everywhere can say "No to War" as detailed below. Their commitment would help persuade Bush and his allies to stop using D.U. weapons.

Finally, please read four articles for evidence that the illegal war of aggression in Iraq is inflicting serious worldwide environmental damage, and what we should do in response:

[1] Lauren Moret's 2-27-06 CC essay, "Depleted Uranium Contaminates Europe" [Reports the findings of a landmark study by British scientists Drs. Saroise Morgan and Chris Busby, published in the 2-19-06 Sunday Times Online. They concluded that: (a) Europe is contaminated by depleted uranium from the US military's use of Depleted Uranium Munitions ("DUM") in four wars (i.e., Gulf War, Bosnia/Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq); (b) very fine particles of depleted uranium are being transported into Europe though atmospheric sand and dust storms,

and on air currents, from war zones in the Balkans and the Middle East; and (c) irrefutable evidence proves that the US military has been using DUM on cities and other civilian populations inside Iraq, which is a war crime under international law.]: http://www.countercurrents.org/moret270206.htm
