What the Pentagon doesn’t want us to know about depleted uranium.
In the weeks leading up to the war on Iraq, TV screens across America were crowded with images of U.S. soldiers readying for upcoming battles with
a crazed dictator who would stop at nothing. One clip after another showed U.S. soldiers racing to don $211 suits designed to protect them from the
chemical and biological attacks they would surely suffer on the road to ousting Saddam Hussein.
But these grim forecasts were wrong. Despite the advance hype, Hussein’s dreaded arsenal was not the biggest threat to Americans on the battlefield
in Iraq. In fact, it was no threat at all.
The real threat—not only to U.S. troops but to Iraqis as well—may prove to be a weapon scarcely mentioned before, during or after the war: depleted
I am VERY frustrated by this depleted uranium issue. It is so obvious that this supposedly "democratic" government is feeding us propoganda that is
worse than that of the dictators we call evil, but it seems we are all powerless to do anything about it. This is the best modern day example of how
this 'Great' nation has lost it's freedom and gets closer and closer to being a facist state every day. "And it's one, two, three, what are we
fighting for"... surely it's not for freedom anymore. Freedom is just the word this nation hides behind, as it takes more and more freedom away from
us all through the years. It seems like there are two options, do nothing or have a revolution. Neither one is a good option. Working at it
democratically isn't an option anymore because of the uncheckable power the peole'majority' have given this current administration. You've made it
impossible to call your "leaders" to account. The Only thing left to do is to Hope that 'GoD' Blesses US All....Whatever That means...I think
He's confused Himself if He should let Us All live Or bring Back The Dinos....
