The Real WMD's In Iraq - Ours

Douglas Westerman

Weapons of mass destruction are all over Iraq. Iraqi children are playing among them every day. According to Iraqi doctors, many are developing cancer as a result. The WMD in question is depleted uranium (DU). Left over after natural uranium has been processed, DU is 1.7 times denser than lead - effective in penetrating armored vehicles such as tanks. After a DU shell strikes, it penetrates before exploding into a burning vapor that turns to dust.

"Depleted uranium has a half life of 4.7 billion years - that means thousands upon thousands of Iraqi children will suffer for tens of thousands of years to come. This is what I call terrorism," says Dr Ahmad Hardan.

As a special scientific adviser to the World Health Organization, the United Nations and the Iraqi Ministry of Health, Dr Hardan is the man who documented the effects of depleted uranium in Iraq between 1991 and 2002. U.S. forces admit to using at least 300 tons of D.U. ordinance in Gulf War I, with up to six times that amount in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

When a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, it can dramatically alter the entire fabric of family life. The emotional impact can be huge. Imagine having nine members of your family with malignancies at the same time. Welcome to Basra, Iraq.

Dr. Jawad Al-Ali, educated in England, is head oncologist at the Saddam teaching hospital in Basra. There are nine people with cancer in his wife's family. They are not alone. At a conference in Japan in 2004 he stated:

"Two strange phenomena have come about in Basra which I have never seen before. The first is double and triple cancers in one patient. For example, leukemia and cancer of the stomach. We had one patient with 2 cancers - one in his stomach and kidney. Months later, primary cancer was developing in his other kidney--he had three different cancer types. The second is the clustering of cancer in families. We have 58 families here with more than one person affected by cancer. Dr Yasin, a general Surgeon here has two uncles, a sister and cousin affected with cancer. Dr Mazen, another specialist, has six family members suffering from cancer. My wife has nine members of her family with cancer".

"Children in particular are susceptible to depleted uranium( DU) poisoning. They have a much higher absorption rate as their blood is being used to build and nourish their bones and they have a lot of soft tissues. Bone cancer and leukemia used to be diseases affecting them the most, however, cancer of the lymph system, which can develop anywhere on the body, and has rarely been seen before the age of 12 is now also common."

At one point after the war, a Basra hospital reported treating upwards of 600 children per day with symptoms of radiation sickness. 600 children per day?

The widespread use of DU weapons was not limited to Iraq. The Uranium Medical Research Center (UMRC), founded by Dr. Asaf Durakovic, a former U.S. Army Colonel, did extensive field studies in Afghanistan just after the invasion. Excerpts from their field reports read:

"We took both soil and biological samples, and found considerable presence in urine samples of radioactivity; the heavy concentration astonished us. They were beyond our wildest imagination."......."The UMRC field team was shocked by the breadth of public health impacts coincident with the bombing. Without exception, at every bombsite investigated, people are ill. A significant portion of the civilian population presents symptoms consistent with internal contamination by uranium."

In Afghanistan, unlike Iraq, UMRC lab results indicated high concentrations of NON-DEPLETED URANIUM, with the concentrations being much higher than in DU victims from Iraq. Afghanistan was evidently used as a testing ground for a new generation of "bunker buster" bombs containing high concentrations of other uranium alloys

Dr. Durakovic stated, "The [U.S.] Veteran's Administration asked me to lie about the risks of incorporating depleted uranium in the human body ...uranium does cause cancer, uranium does cause mutation, and uranium does kill. If we continue with the irresponsible contamination of the biosphere, the denial of the fact that human life is endangered by the deadly uranium isotope, then we are doing disservice to ourselves, disservice to the truth, disservice to God and to all the generations who follow."

Living in Iraq under Saddam Hussein was pretty bad much of the time, and being ruled by the Taliban in Afghanistan was no picnic either, but DU is worse. It's not safe even to breathe. It's the ultimate tyranny.

Um, while you were being just oh-so-sanctimonious about "Bush lying" about wmd's and blaming America for the whole war, our intelligence system and military have discovered approximately 500 bombs. Each of those bombs is either designed to contains or already contains Sarin. You libs have to feel pretty stupid about calling Bush a liar. The easy money is in calling you leftists friggin' IDIOTS!

It's amazing how people tend to leave out the facts when they try to press a point, especially when it will do well to inflate their already inflated sense of self-righteousness.

In regards to Mr. Adcox, he failed, quite obviously, to note that those supposed WMD's were in fact older than dirt and not really viable as WMDs. But then, much like other people in desparation, Mr. Adcox goes with the idea that FOX news must be right because everything they say is right along with Bush, therefore he must be right.

Mr. Adcox, faith in our president is a fine thing, but blind faith is a dangerous one. You hold faith in a man who says that we should not think, a man who said the Constitution is a g*dd*mn piece of paper.

Remember that your president swore an oath to defend the Constitution, against enemies both foreign and dmoestic, not to carve it up like a christmas turkey. Keep that in mind when you freedom speak against that man when he does something you don't like has been taken away....

20769 Shadow,

You're missing the greater point, which is that the Democrat leadership and their minions in the media and "entertainment" industry claimed that Bush lied regarding wmd's in Iraq. As an aside, if you're fair-minded you'll remember that Clinton singularly redefined the Second ammendment thus: "I don't think anyone oughts have an assault rifle", and followed up his arrogance with infringing on the ammendment. So when you accuse Bush of "carving up" the constitution "like a Christmas turkey", please be fundamentally honest enough to remember the incompetence of the liberal "leadership" of the Democrat Party. That is, if you want to avoid being hypocritical.

Bear in mind that I hold no allegiance to any party. I would not even classify myself as an independent. I do however, agree with more the liberal ideals more readily than conservative ideals, though I do have a few.

And keep in mind this one fact. There is a reason we have the eagle as our national symbol. It has a left wing and a right wing. If one is more powerful than the other, we will be simply flying circles. Both must work as one to achieve the goals required, but that does not mean that blind faith from either side should be endorsed.

I question the validity of the official story of 9-11, not because I support terrorists, but because there is valid evidence that cannot be overlooked.
I question our reasons for going to Iraq, not because of WMD's but because the original rallying cry was Bin Laden's there let's get him.
I question the need for a bill that strips habaes corpus from the constitution, not because I feel that terrorists need a fair trial, but that innocent are given the chance they deserve.
I question the American public for being a group of self-centered, foolish, complacent lemmings who would much rather exercise their remotes than their minds.

This country is already dead, we're just waiting for the firestorm of oblivion to wipe its carcass from the world....
