The following is a report by Leuren Moret,
a geoscientist who has worked around the world on radiation
issues, educating citizens, the media, members of
parliaments and Congress and other officials. She became a
whistleblower in 1991 at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab after
experiencing major science fraud on the
Yucca Mountain Project. She is an environmental commissioner in the
City of Berkeley.

policy.” Henry Kissinger as quoted in the book

was a chemical war for oil, permanently contaminating large regions and
countries downriver with Agent Orange, and
environmentally the most devastating war in world history. But since
1991, the U.S. has staged four nuclear wars
using DEPLETED URANIUM weaponry, which, like Agent
Orange, meets the U.S. government’s definition
of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Vast regions in
the Middle East and Central Asia have been permanently
contaminated with radiation.
about our soldiers? Terry Jemison of the Department of Veterans Affairs
reported in August 2004 that “Gulf-era veterans” now on medical
disability since 1991 number 518,739 - with only 7,035 men reported
wounded in Iraq in that same 14-year period. In August 2004 the
American Free Press dropped a surprise on the Pentagon by reporting
that eight out of twenty men who served in one
unit in the 2003 U.S. military offensive in Iraq
now have malignancies. That means that 40%
of the soldiers in that unit have developed malignancies in just 16
these soldiers were exposed to vaccines and depleted
uranium ONLY, this is strong evidence for researchers
and scientists working on this issue – that depleted
uranium IS the definitive cause of Gulf War Syndrome.
Vaccines are not known to cause cancer. One of the first published
researchers on Gulf War Syndrome, who also served in 1991 in Iraq, Dr.
Andras Korenyl-Both, is in agreement with Barbara Goodno from the
Department of Defense’s Deployment Health Support Directorate, that in
this war soldiers were not exposed to chemicals, pesticides, biological
agents or other suspect causes which tend to confuse the issue as to
why our soldiers are getting sick.
powerful new evidence is blowing holes in the cover-up perpetrated by
the Pentagon and three presidential administrations ever since depleted
uranium was first used in 1991 in the Persian Gulf War.
Fourteen years after the introduction of depleted uranium
on the battlefield in 1991, the long-term effects have revealed that
depleted uranium is a DEATH SENTENCE and very
studying the biological effects of uranium in the 1960s reported that it
targets the DNA. Marion Fulk, a nuclear
physical chemist retired from the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab and
became formally involved with the Manhattan Project,
interprets the new and rapid malignances in soldiers from the 2003 war
as “spectacular … and a matter of concern.”
evidence shows that of the three effects which depleted
uranium has on biological systems – radiation, chemical
and particulate – the particulate effect from nano-size
particles is the most dominant one that can be found immediately after
exposure and targets the MASTER CODE in the DNA.
This is bad news, but it explains why
depleted uranium causes a myriad of diseases which are difficult to
define. In simple words, depleted uranium
“trashes the body.” When asked if the main purpose for using it was for
destroying things and killing people, Marion Fulk was more specific: “I
would say that it is THE PERFECT WEAPON
FOR KILLING LOTS OF PEOPLE.”
developing malignancies so quickly since 2003 can be expected to
develop multiple cancers from independent causes. This phenomenon has
been reported by doctors in hospitals treating civilians following
NATO bombing with depleted uranium in Yugoslavia
in 1998-1999, and the U.S. military invasion of Iraq
using depleted uranium for the first time
in 1991. Medical experts report that this phenomenon of multiple
malignancies from unrelated causes has been unknown until now and is a
new syndrome associated with internal depleted
467 U.S. personnel were wounded in the
three-week Persian Gulf War in 1990-1991. Out of 580,400 soldiers who
served in Gulf War I, 11,000 are dead, and by the
year 2000 there were 325,000 on permanent medical
disability. This astounding number of disabled vets
means that a decade later, 56% of those soldiers
who served now have medical problems. The number of disabled vets
reported up to the year 2000 has been increasing by 43,000 every year.
Brad Flohr of the Department of Veterans Affairs said that he believes
there are more disabled vets now than after World War II.
only were soldiers exposed to depleted uranium
on and off the battlefields, but they brought it home. Depleted
uranium in the semen of soldiers internally contaminated
their wives, partners and girlfriends. Tragically, some women in their
20s and 30s who were sexual partners of exposed soldiers developed
endometriosis and were forced to have hysterectomies because of health
a group of 251 soldiers from a study group in Mississippi
who had all had normal babies before the Gulf War, 67% of their
post-war babies were born with severe birth defects! They were born
with missing legs, arms, organs or eyes or had immune system
and blood diseases. In some veteran’s families now, the only
normal or healthy members of the family are the children born before
Department of Veteran’s Affairs has stated that they do not keep
records of birth defects occurring in families of veterans. HOW DID
THEY HIDE IT?
a new weapons system can be used, it must be fully tested. The
blueprint for depleted uranium weapons is a
1943 declassified document from the Manhattan
President and physicist James B. Conant, who developed poison
gas in World War I, was brought into the Manhattan Project
by the father of former presidential candidate in 2004, John Kerry.
Kerry’s father served at a high level in the Manhattan Project and was
also a CIA agent.
was chair of the S-1 Poison Gas Committee, which recommended developing
poison gas weapons from the radioactive trash of
the atomic bomb project in World War II. At that
time, it was KNOWN that radioactive materials dispersed in bombs from
the air, from land vehicles or on the battlefield produced very
fine radioactive dust
which would penetrate ALL protective
clothing, any gas mask or filter or the
skin. By contaminating the lungs and blood, it could kill or cause
illness very quickly.
also recommended it as a PERMANENT terrain contaminant, which could be used to destroy
populations by contaminating water supplies and agricultural land with
the radioactive dust.
first depleted uranium system was developed
for the Navy in 1968. Depleted uranium weapons were given to and used
by Israel in 1973 under U.S.
supervision in the Yom Kippur war against the Arabs.
Phalanx weapons system, using depleted uranium,
was tested on the USS Bigelow out of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in
1977. Depleted uranium weapons have been
sold by the U.S. to 29 countries.
research report summaries detail the testing of depleted
uranium from 1974-1999 at military testing grounds,
bombing and gunnery ranges and civilian labs under contract.
Today, 42 states have contamination from manufacture, testing and
deployment of depleted uranium.
living around these facilities have reported increases in
endometriosis, birth defects in babies, leukemia in children and
cancers and other diseases in adults. Thousand of tons of depleted
uranium weapons tested for decades by the Navy on four
bombing and gunnery ranges around Fallon, Nevada,
is no doubt the cause of the fastest growing leukemia cluster in the U.S.
over the past decade. The military denies that depleted
uranium is the cause. The medical profession has been
active in the cover-up – just as they were in hiding the effects from
the American public – of low level radiation from atmospheric testing
and nuclear power plants. A medical doctor in Northern California
reported being trained by the Pentagon with other doctors, months
before the 2003 war started, to diagnose and treat
soldiers returning from the 2003 war for mental problems ONLY.
professionals in hospitals and facilities treating returning soldiers
were threatened with $10,000 fines if they talked about the soldiers or
their medical problems. They were also threatened with jail.
have also been prevented access to more than 14,000 medically evacuated
soldiers flown nightly since the 2003 war began in C-150s from Germany,
who are brought to Walter Reed Hospital
near Washington, D.C.
was the truth about depleted uranium hidden
from military personnel serving in successive depleted uranium wars?
Before his tragic death, Senator Paul Wellstone informed Joyce Riley,
R.N., B.S.N., executive director of the American Gulf War Veterans
Association, that 95% of Gulf War veterans had been recycled
out of the military by 1995. Any of those continuing in
military service were isolated from each other, preventing critical
information from being transferred to new troops. The “next depleted
uranium war” had already been planned when President
Bush came into office, and those planning it wanted no one to expose
it. The U.S. has a depleted uranium secret that
it does not want to get out.
new book just published, “The High Priests of War,”
details the early plans for a war against the Arab world by Henry
Kissinger and others in the late 1960s and early 1970s. That just happens
to coincide with getting the depleted uranium
“show on the road,” and the oil crisis in the Middle East,
which caused concern to President Nixon. The British had been plotting
and scheming for control of the oil in Iraq for
book details the creation of the neo-conservatives by their “godfather”
and Communist Leon Trotsky lover Irving Kristol, who pushed for a “WAR AGAINST TERRORISM” long before 9/11 and was lavishly funded for years by
the CIA. His son, William Kristol, is one of the most influential men
in the United States behind the scenes. Both are
public relations men for the Israeli lobby’s neo-conservative network,
with strong ties to Rupert Murdoch. Kissinger also has ties to this
network and to the Carlyle Group, who, one could say, has facilitated
these omnicidal wars beginning from the time former President Bush took
office. It would be easy to say that we are recycling World Wars I and
II, with practically the same faces running the show.
I asked Vietnam Special Ops Green Beret Captain John McCarthy who could
have devised this omnicidal plan to use depleted uranium
to destroy the genetic code and genetic future of
large populations of Arabs and Moslems in the Middle East and Central
Asia where most of the world’s oil deposits are located, he replied: “It
has all the handprints of Henry Kissinger.”
Zbignew Brzezinski’s book, “The Grand Chessboard: American
Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives,” the map of the
Eurasian chessboard includes four regions strategic to U.S.
foreign policy. The “South” region
corresponds precisely to the regions NOW contaminated permanently
with radiation from U.S. bombs, missiles and
bullets made with thousands of tons of depleted uranium.
Japanese professor, Dr. K. Yagasaki, has calculated that 800 tons of depleted
uranium is the atomicity equivalent of 83,000 Nagasaki
bombs. The U.S. has used more depleted uranium
since 1991 than the atomicity equivalent of 400,000 Nagasaki
bombs. That equals four nuclear wars, and 10
times the amount of radiation released into the atmosphere
from atmospheric testing!
wonder our soldiers, their families and the people of the Middle East, Yugoslavia
and Central Asia are sick. And what about American veterans
becoming sicker than ever? But as Henry Kissinger said after Vietnam
when our soldiers came home ill from Agent Orange: “Military
men are just dumb stupid animals to be used for foreign policy.”
more and more of those soldiers are men and women with brown skin. And
unfortunately, the depleted uranium
radioactive dust will be carried around the world and deposited in our
environments just as the “smog of war” from the 1991 Gulf War was found
in deposits in South America, the Himalayas and Hawaii.
June 2003, the World Health Organization announced in a press release
that GLOBAL CANCER RATES will increase 50% by
2020. What else do they know that they aren’t telling us? I
KNOW THAT DEPLETED URANIUM IS A DEATH SENTENCE … for ALL
of us. We will all die in silent ways!
is, if Jesus does not intervene in world affairs!!!
