Bush lied about the presence of Weapons of Mass destruction (WMD) being in Iraq and developed by the late Saddam Hussein. Tragically, the illegal Iraq War continues causing illness to over one million U.S. soldiers and billions of dollars lost that could be used for U.S. infrastructure enhancements, education, housing and medical services for Americans.
The book, web site and “Tribune Gazette” develop the theme that there is a “New Iron Curtain Around the USA, “A Media Iron Curtain”. As evidence of this: How many Americans are aware that over one million U.S. soldiers and countless innocent Iraqi civilians, have been exposed to the deadly radioactive WMD in Iraq, Depleted Uranium (DU)?
And also tragic, “We the People of the United States”, courtesy of Bush, are responsible for it being there.
As the pictures with this article graphically show, Depleted Uranium is a lethal, unconscionable, radioactive weapon and the extent to which it has and will continue to cause illnesses and the loss of life are unacceptable.
While most of us may not have the background to understand what the implications of 360 tons vs. 10 tons of DU is, given the numbers and seriousness of the illnesses, we can grasp the clear message that 3,000 tons of DU as used in Iraq is a catastrophe. see Note 1 below.
They have exposed close to a million of our troops.
They put 425,000 Americans in Desert Storm and over 300,000 of them are having medical disability issues.
“The Canadians told me, “Oh, for the record, the reason we didn’t go to Iraq is we are already seeing some huge health issues on the Canadian troops that participated in Desert Storm, Bosnia, and Afghanistan. We’re not going to be exposing our folks to this stuff anymore. We’re against it.” Now, they’re coming to grips in their own country with some very real and very tragic health stories, and our government is sitting on it.”
