Soldier died from exposure depleted uranium during Gulf War


www.telegrap h.co.uk

The death of a former soldier from colon cancer was "more likely than not" caused by his exposure to depleted uranium during the first Gulf War, an inquest has heard.

The hearing in Smethwick, West Midlands, was told that Stuart Dyson died 17 years after being exposed to particles of the substance used in munitions during the 1991 conflict.

We need to stop using this horrible substance. For years the debate has seemed to be that there is no real risk but this is one of the first official inquiries to actually find that it's the likely cause.

"The witness, a visiting professor at the University of Ulster, added: ''It (uranium) is actually much more dangerous than it originally appeared to be."

I mean though, really? They couldn't guess that this stuff was going to be damaging to people?

Maybe now it's been shown that it's effecting our troops and not just the brown people, citizens of all our countries will express some outrage at some of the toxic waste we are shooting around freely.

So this is not an issue until an American soldier dies from it? What about all those people, including babies, that suffer the consequences on the other end of the barrel?

I remember a report on ATS a few years ago of how the radiation level in Iraq is 100,000 times the amount after post-war Hiroshima/Nagasaki, with the mutation reports to boot. I wonder what the number is now.

I agree with the previous poster.

Go ask doctors in Iraq if DU is an issue. Birth defect rates in Iraq have gone up astronomically since 2001. The rates have reached 50% in some areas.

Not to mention that, even though no one admits it, the use of DU makes this a nuclear war.

Here are some fantastic lyrics by the band Anti-Flag from their song "Depleted Uranium is a War Crime":


[U.S. Representative, Jim McDermott:]
"Depleted Uranium is used on the ends of bullets
and on the ends of shells because it is so hard [that]
almost any armament is vulnerable to something that is tipped with Depleted Uranium."

Woahhh!

In the cities and towns of Afghanistan
In the heart of the Balkans - the heart of Iraq
Not your Grandfather's style of deadly munitions
It's silent and deadly long after the mission

Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime

Gonna cut through their armor, then cut through your lungs
If you make it home alive you'll still die young
A greedy gang of liars, yeah we've seen it all before
A moneymaking scheme led by war-profiteering whores

Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime

[U.S. Representative, Jim McDermott:]
"They were throwing it away until they figured out they could use it for armament."

Half Life - 4.5 Billion
Half Life - You'll waste away
Half Life - 4.5 Billion
Half Life - You'll waste a...

We've heard their lies before and we know they're lying again
Feels like a déjà vu of Agent Orange and Vietnam
Weaponry so sadistic it is hard to comprehend
War profits surge with every breath by Uncle Sam

Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime

[U.S. Representative, Jim McDermott:]
"We went to a hospital in Southern Iraq,
and a woman was there with a very deformed child and
her husband had been in the Iraqi Army and had been
in the battles in Southern Iraq and
came home and they produced a baby with very severe
malformations... Both the Leukemia rates in children and
malformations at birth had increased by 600%
and it was clearly an epidemic where all this
DU had been dumped... It becomes a dust that can be
inhaled and infect the blood stream and the rest
of the body and it was the opinion of the
doctors there that this was caused by depleted uranium...
They simply saw this as being a direct result of the
war by United States."

Half Life - 4.5 Billion
Half Life - We waste away
Half Life - 4.5 Billion
Half Life - We waste away
Half Life - 4.5 Billion
Half Life - We waste away
Half Life - 4.5 Billion
Half Life - We waste away

[U.S. Representative, Jim McDermott:]
"The doctor said,
'Women [in Iraq] at the time of birth don't ask if
it's a boy or a girl, they ask: Is it normal?'
...The military denies first, and then after the evidence
builds to the point where they can no longer deny,
then they do the research. That's what happened in the
Vietnam era around Agent Orange and I suspect and
I'm worried that that's what will happen this time."

I read an article very recently which showed DU being blown across the entire continent of Australia with particularly heavy deposits falling over the capital cities

The article said experts are aware of this, just as they have been aware for some time that the recent 'explosion of diabetes' is attributable to DU

Depleted Uranium covering Australia
it's a really big Island you know.
Have you got a link on that article and where would this DU cloud of come from? Iraq.
This could be why pieces of my face are falling off lately.

Issue of depleted uranium exists and causes increase in malignant diseases, it is of course suppressed by those who use it for a reason.

They were used in the city where I live for 20 years and the cancer increase is apparent, but I can't tell how much exactly since statistics are probably made up.
