The terror of depleted uranium (DU)

Depleted uranium as a direct result of US-UK-Israeli neocon policy is wreaking ruin over Iraq, infecting civilians and especially children and lowering their immunity to other diseases such as the measles, infecting livestock, the air and environment, and the serving soldiers as well.

From the web-video intro:

1,000-2,000 TONS DU Spread Over Iraq’s Cities: The President of the United States, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and the Prime Minister of Israel must acknowledge and accept responsibility for the willful use of illegal uranium munitions—their own “dirty bombs”—resulting in adverse health and environmental effects. A shell coated with depleted uranium pierces a tank like a hot knife through butter, exploding on impact into a charring inferno. As tank armour, it repels artillery assaults. It also leaves behind a fine radioactive dust with a half-life of 4.5 billion years. More on DU: http://www.apfn.org/apfn/DU.htm

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
