Depleted Uranium!

The United States is guilty of using depleted uranium
—innocent children suffer!

WARNING: Photos below are horrifying! 


IRAQ: Doctors warn of increasing deformities in newborn babies

"Unborn children of the region [are] being asked to pay the highest price, the integrity of their DNA." Ross B. Mirkarimi, The Arms Control Research Centre, from his report: ‘The Environmental and Human Health Impacts of the Gulf Region with Special Reference to Iraq.’ May 1992

"Only tyrants can take a nation to war without the consent of the people. The planned war against Iraq without a Declaration of War is illegal. It is unwise because of many unforeseen consequences that are likely to result. It is immoral and unjust, because it has nothing to do with US security and because Iraq has not initiated aggression against us." —Congressman Ron Paul

       In an act of stark cruelty, the U.S. dominated Sanctions Committee refuses to permit Iraq to import the clean-up equipment that they desperately need to decontaminate their country of the Depleted Uranium [DU] ammunition that the U.S. fired at them. Approximately 315 tons of DU dust was left by the use of this ammunition.  The Sanctions Committee also refuses to allow the mass importation of anti-cancer treatments, which contain trace amounts of radio-isotopes, on the grounds that these constitute '...nuclear materials..'

Another victim of Depleted UraniumThe majority of the pictures were supplied to me by a source who prefers to remain anonymous at the current time. I was unable to acquire either original negatives, or prints from negatives. They arrived in the form of color A4 copies. I scanned them into Photoshop and attempted to clean and sharpen them as best I could. There has not, and I repeat not, been any digital alteration other than the cleaning and sharpening process. No text documentation arrived with the pictures, so I have described them as accurately as I can. It is my understanding that the photographs were taken from 1998 onwards.

Additional pictures were taken by Dr. Siegwart Horst-Gunther, President of the International Yellow Cross. Most appeared in his 1996 book  "URANIUM PROJECTILES - SEVERELY MAIMED SOLDIERS, DEFORMED BABIES, DYING CHILDREN" (Published by AHRIMAN - Verlag, ISBN: 3-89484-805-7). The book is a documentary record of DU ammunition after-effects, and they were taken between 1993 and 1995. Dr. Gunther also supplied me with additional photographs from his unpublished collection, some of which feature the birth deformities being experienced by Western Gulf war veterans' children. I have asked Dr. Gunther's permission for his pictures to be treated as 'Public Domain' and copyright free. He has agreed and you may reproduce them as you see fit.

Iraqi war deadBoth the Pentagon and the British Ministry of Defense officially deny that there is any significant danger from exposure to DU ammunition. And whilst it is conceivable that the US led attacks on Iraq's nuclear power stations could be a contributory factor, most researchers point to DU as the most likely source of both deformities and cancers. The rising number of cases in Iraq, particularly in the South where the greatest concentration of DU was fired, is simply staggering. Iraqi physicians have never encountered anything like it, and have made the perfectly reasonable point that similar increases in cancer and deformities were experienced in Japan after the two US atomic bomb attacks. Cancer has increased between 7 and 10 fold; deformities between 4 and 6 fold.

Yet the US was well aware of the potential effects on civilians and military personnel of the chemical toxicity and radiological properties of DU ammunition long before the Gulf war began, as the following excerpts of a US Army document categorically state:

"Aerosol DU (Depleted Uranium) exposures to soldiers on the battlefield could be significant with potential radiological and toxicological effects. [...] Under combat conditions, the most exposed individuals are probably ground troops that re-enter a battlefield following the exchange of armor-piercing munitions. [...] We are simply highlighting the potential for levels of DU exposure to military personnel during combat that would be unacceptable during peacetime operations. [...DU is..]... a low level alpha radiation emitter which is linked to cancer when exposures are internal, [and] chemical toxicity causing kidney damage. [...] Short term effects of high doses can result in death, while long term effects of low doses have been linked to cancer. [...] Our conclusion regarding the health and environmental acceptability of DU penetrators assume both controlled use and the presence of excellent health physics management practices. Combat conditions will lead to the uncontrolled release of DU. [...] The conditions of the battlefield, and the long term health risks to natives and combat veterans may become issues in the acceptability of the continued use of DU kinetic penetrators for military applications."

- Excerpts from the July 1990 Science and Applications International Corporation report: ' Kinetic Energy Penetrator Environment and Health Considerations', as included in Appendix D - US Army Armaments, Munitions and Chemical Command report: 'Kinetic Energy Penetrator Long Term Strategy Study, July 1990'

The U.S. was also well aware of the long-term dangers of DU contamination, and played it down, as the following memo and document make clear:

"There has been and continues to be a concern regarding the impact of DU on the environment. Therefore, if no-one makes a case for the effectiveness of DU on the battlefield, DU rounds may become politically unacceptable and thus be deleted from the arsenal. I believe we should keep this sensitive issue in mind when action reports are written." — Lt. Col. M.V. Ziehmn, Los Alamos National Laboratory memorandum, March 1st 1991

"Soldiers may be incidentally exposed to DU from dust and smoke on the battlefield. The Army Surgeon General has determined that it is unlikely that these soldiers will receive a significant internal DU exposure. Medical follow-up is not warranted for soldiers who experience incidental exposure from dust or smoke. [...] Since DU weapons are openly available on the world arms market, DU weapons will be used in future conflicts. The number of DU patients on future battlefields probably will be significantly higher because other countries will use systems containing DU. [...] DU is a low-level radioactive waste, and, therefore, must be disposed of in a licensed repository. [...] No international law, treaty, regulation, or custom requires the United States to remediate the Persian Gulf war battlefields." Report by the US Army Environmental Policy Institute: 'Health and Consequences of Depleted Uranium use in the US army', June 1995

DU ammunition is now possessed by more than 12 countries, and was used during the NATO led bombing of the former Yugoslavia. Western forces stationed in the region have recently been advised not to drink the local water or eat locally produced food.  Yet the British Ministry of Defense continues to deny any potential risks, stating: "We have not seen any peer-reviewed epidemiological research data to support these claims [that DU is dangerous.] [...] There are no plans to remove DU-based ammunition from service." (Source: Two letters to me from Simon Wren, Overseas Secretariat, Ministry of Defence, Whitehall, London - 20th May 1999, and 22nd March 2000)

On a more personal level, I have heard stories of visitors to Iraq who spoke with mid-wives there. These mid-wives are purported to have said they no longer look forward to births as.... "We don't know what's going to come out."

The pictures below, which are extremely disturbing, show exactly what DU does.

untitled02.JPG (34024 bytes)


Child with almost total deformity of the face; no recognizable features at all, and what appears to be one eye situated in the middle of the forehead.
untitled01.JPG (38220 bytes)
Child with hydrocephalus.
untitled03.JPG (75818 bytes)


Extreme hydrocephalus; deformity of face, body and ear. The line running down the right hand side of the head would appear to show that potentially two heads were forming.
untitled04.JPG (43461 bytes)


Deformity of ear; possible deformation of lower body.
untitled05.JPG (31580 bytes)


Born without eyes. 

I can offer no explanation as to the translucent quality of the skin other than it is possibly a result of flash photography at close range.


untitled06.JPG (51158 bytes)


Huge hole in child's back, which appears to be an extreme form of Spina Bifida.
untitled07.JPG (47810 bytes)


Possibly taken shortly after birth, this picture appears to show ambiguous genitalia, sometimes referred to as 'Non-Viable Children.'
untitled08.JPG (37620 bytes)


This child is completely covered in a white substance of unknown properties. Obvious deformation of face and eyes. Flash photography at close range obscures detail.
untitled09.JPG (46956 bytes)


Two children with similar deformities of the face. 

Dr. Gunther refers to this condition as 'Zyklopie.'


untitled10.JPG (38011 bytes)


Child with unknown white substance covering almost the whole body.
untitled11.JPG (47619 bytes)


Front view of same child. Severe deformities of mouth and eyes. The welts appear to indicate open wounds, or unformed skin tissue.
untitled12.JPG (42848 bytes)


Severe body deformity, with head formed at 90 degree angle to upper torso.
untitled13.JPG (51479 bytes)


Severe hydrocephalus; again, almost as though two heads were being formed.
untitled14.JPG (28860 bytes)


Flash at close range obscures detail, but this appears to show malformation of the mouth and one eye missing, with the eye socket deformed.
untitled15.JPG (42380 bytes)


It isn't clear what has happened to this child, and I have no explanation for the dark nature and condition of the skin.
untitled16.JPG (32208 bytes)


Lack of focus obscures detail, but missing eyes are clearly visible, as is deformity of the mouth.
untitled17.JPG (40520 bytes)


This picture would appear to show another 'Non Viable' child, possible male, with penis and scrotum merged.
untitled18.JPG (44733 bytes)


Horrendous deformity of entire body and head. Note lack of eyes and malformation of the hands and feet.
untitled20.JPG (36041 bytes)


Child with unknown deformity of the mouth, possibly a large tumor grown during fetal stage.
gunther52.JPG (326822 bytes)


Malformation of hands, with almost total merging of all digits.
gunther53.JPG (195122 bytes)


Severe malformation of face. 

Dr. Gunther refers to this condition as 'Zyklopie.'

Is Sarah Palin’s God a Liar and a War Criminal?

In June, 2008, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, now Republican Senator John McCain’s choice for his running mate as vice-president, spoke to a group of ministry students at her Wasilla, Alaska Assembly of God Church. Palin asked these church leaders to pray for soldiers, including her own son, who would soon be deployed to Iraq, in these words: "that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan."

Would God’s plan include lying about, and misrepresenting crucial information about, the alleged reasons for going to war against Iraq?  Would it include commission of the “supreme international crime” of waging an unprovoked, unnecessary war of aggression against a nation and its people who never threatened the United States?  What kind of God would have such a plan?
