US Government and Military data ignore that DU munitions are harming health workers, both civilian and military and international, while they are in transit or just sitting around waiting to be used in battle
WHY NEUTRONS ARE ESPECIALLY HARMFUL TO LIVING TISSUES
1. Neutrons are uncharged particles, thus atomic nuclei do not repel them. A neutron has mass but no electrical charge. When freed they make an extremely lethal form of radiation. The probability that a neutron [fast neutron] with an initial energy of about 1 MEV [million electron volts] will induce fission is rather low, but can be increased by a factor of hundreds when the neutron is slowed down through a series of elastic collisions with light nuclei such as hydrogen, deuterium, or carbon. The preferred way of slowing down neutrons is to cause them to pass through material of low atomic weight, such as hydrogenous material!
2. Neutrons are particularly effective in initiating nuclear reactions if they pass through water. The light atoms in water absorb some of the neutrons’ energy and do so without absorbing the neutrons themselves [elastic collisions]. Neutrons are thus slowed down to the point they moved with only the speed of molecules at room temperature. These thermal neutrons stay in the vicinity of a particular nucleus a longer fraction of a second and are more likely to be absorbed than fast neutrons.
3. The human body is hydrogenous material - a well organized body of water [75% or more], with some heavier molecules thrown in - which is damaged or destroyed when transformed into a small-scale water-moderated nuclear reactor by neutron emission.}
Depleted Uranium, Time-Release Poison
The initial 320 tons is still there. Depleted uranium has a half-life of 4.5 billion years. Some of the radioactive particles are as small as bacteria. They cannot be filtered so they permeate the air, water, soil, vegetation, and animal life. Our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are inhaling and ingesting them every day. They accumulate throughout the body like time-release poison, so the symptoms often develop years later. (Irving Wesley Hall)
You really think I want Bush touching my baby for photo Ops, or any politician who has been to Iraq? You think I want McCain, or Hillary rubbing elbows with me. Believe me you don't. They are potential carriers of this disastrous cover-up on DU.
Our ANSWER Coalition needs to think about what is the answer here. Do we really want those troops coming back to contaminate people living in the USA? Oh you think burning the clothes will stop it? Well the smoke from the clothes burning goes into the air later gets into the water and we still have it.
Bush was warned to not go into this war, to bring the troops home. Even the British and Japanese were smart enough and have left, except the US. Has anyone told any of the other coalition forces what they are bringing home to their countries? NO!
Now Bush is considering bringing home his troop surge forces? Really Mr. Bush we don’t want them to come back. We didn’t ask them to go, and now we don’t want them back, when they are going to cause our communities to suffer from the effects of DU. No they need to stay in Iraq, and do what they can to help the people who are suffering from this horrible crime to humanity.
In fact I think you should be on a plane to Iraq and never think about coming back. You want your Oil, you go get it, and stay there.
In all reality this will be implemented and enforced by Homeland Security to protect the American people from Bush and his radioactive crime. The US Patriot Act should also be used to stop Bush.
Accordingly: The Patriot Act says: Americans against Bush have the law and resources to use against Bush and his plan to bring back DU troops who are really walking time-bombs to America’s community.
