Spoils of War Today? - Gulf War Syndrome

by D. Burbeck Monday, May. 29, 2006 at 3:24 PM

For our troops on Memorial Day - The Kings of Britain and France and many other empires were able to raise huge armies every several decades because the soldiers who survived the battles were rewarded with the riches that they could carry and women that they could rape at will.

Today's soldiers who join the military, in hopes of

getting a college education, are being rewarded

with quite the opposite of those in the past. Today's

soldiers - if they survive the front lines - are finding

a huge list of disabling and deadly medical maladies,

some of which, with a very high percentage, will be in

their future along with deformed offspring.

"Out of 580,400 soldiers who served in Gulf War I,

11,000 are dead, and by 2000 there were 325,000

on permanent medical disability. This astounding

number of disabled vets means that a decade later,

56 percent of those soldiers who served now have

medical problems. The number of disabled vets

reported up to 2000 has been increasing by 43,000

every year." Brad Flohr of the Department of Veterans

Affairs told American Free Press that he believes

there are more disabled vets now than even after

World War II. (1)

The Pentagon and the Veteran's Administration always

deny that Gulf War Syndrome is due to the illegal use of

uranium weapons; but, it is becoming more evident and

irrefutable.

It's not that the boys at the Pentagon don't believe that

uranium weapons cause this type of harm. They are very

aware that the use of uranium weapons is a death

sentence for our troops and is making parts of the world

uninhabitable for-ever. Here is a quote from Henry

Kissinger: “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to

be used as pawns in foreign policy.”

The following is a WW ll memo to Gen. Leslie Groves

from Manhattan Project scientists: "As a gas warfare

instrument the material would be ground into particles

of microscopic size to form dust and smoke and

distributed by a ground-fired projectile, land vehicles,

or aerial bombs. In this form it would be inhaled by

personnel. The amount necessary to cause death to

a person inhaling the material is extremely small …

There are no known methods of treatment for such

a casualty ..." What they said is that when a uranium

bullet hits a metal object or a uranium encased bomb

(dirty bomb) explodes, the heat generated causes

the uranium to burn and turn into a gas. They certainly

know that it is not depleted enough to be safe. The

experts say that it still has about 60% of it's lethal

radioactivity.

Medical professionals in hospitals and facilities

treating returning soldiers were threatened with

,000 fines if they talked about the soldiers or

their medical problems. They were also threatened

with jail. Reporters are routinely prevented access

to more than 14,000 medically evacuated soldiers

flown nightly since the 2003 war, in giant C-150s

from Germany who are brought to Walter Reed

Hospital near Washington, D.C.

Can you say "cover-up"?

"Neither a NATO country nor the World Health Organization

(WHO) have carried out any epidemiological studies of

either soldiers or civilians exposed in uranium wars. This

guarantees no confirmation or discovery of the health

effects of uranium weapons." Statement from lawyers

Piotr Bein, Ph.D., M.A.Sc., P.Eng. and Karen Parker,

J.D., Diplome (Strasbourg).

Bob Nichols, Project Censored Award winning journalist

for the San Francisco Bay View newspaper, has

researched and written about uranium weapons for years

and actually worked at a munitions factory early in his

career. He had this to say when asked if the troops are

aware of the severe health problems awaiting them. "The

Troops are told exactly, precisely Nothing. Period. That

is the way it has always been. The Los Alamos Nuclear

Weapons Lab Memo of 1991 ordered all personnel to lie

about depleted uranium weapons to maintain the "political

viability" of uranium weapons. That is the long and short of

it. The Troops do not count as much as a truck. They are

truly "throw away soldiers" (in the eyes of the Brass).

This may be enough to get you enraged; but, if it is not, this

might do it. The fact is that this radiation makes it's way all

around the globe......into our neighborhoods. Dr. Katsuma

Yagasaki, a Japanese physicist at the University of the

Ryukyus in Okinawa, has estimated that the atomicity

equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki, Japan atomic

bombs were released into the global atmosphere since

1991, from the use of illegal uranium munitions. The tiny

radioactive particles are completely mixed in the atmosphere

in one year.

When asked how these people can do this to their children

and grandchildren, Mr. Nichols replied "They are all psychopaths.

They simply don't care about anything except themselves."

"The use of depleted uranium weaponry by the United

States, defying all international treaties, will slowly annihilate

all species on earth including the human species, and yet

this country continues to do so with full knowledge of its

destructive potential" famed former Lawrence Livermore

Nuclear Weapons Lab scientist Leuren Moret stated.

The thousands of Iraqi people who have become

contaminated and stricken with devastating illnesses

in the past 15 years, and may have had a child or two

with horrible birth defects, are in deep depression and

hopelessness and will offer themselves up to the insurgency

as suicide bombers to exact some kind of revenge against

the evil empire that has destroyed their lives, their families,

and their country. Our government's criminal use of illegal

uranium weapons is one of the most evil things ever

committed on this planet, and if you think the people of the

world are not aware of it........please think again. This is a

huge issue in the international press. Only Americans are

ignorant of this dreadful situation thanks to our corporate

media.

Hitler's concentration camps hold the number one spot

for atrocities, but illegal uranium weapons are a very close

second. And If Leuren Moret's forecast of global annihilation

comes even close to occurring, it will dwarf Hitler's hate

crimes against the Jewish people by quite a margin. Is that

the legacy of America that you want to give to our future

generations?

If you can justify in your mind the devastation that these

weapons wreak, you should move to Washington, DC and find

a job with the soulless, heartless, money grubbing, psychotic

war criminals that have taken over the government of the

U. S. of A. If you can't, please help to get the use of these

weapons stopped for-ever. Write a letter or two, or make a

call to your congressman's office - if not for our troop's sake,

then for your own and your grand children's sake. The entire

world is watching and wondering how the American people

can allow this to go on.

After reading this, my 81 year old mother has agreed to

write her congressman for the first time in her life. How

about you? Can you please turn off ESPN for a few minutes

and use the democratic system, that we are in jeopardy of

loosing because of our complaicancy, to help stop this

horrific omnicidal use of illegal uranium weapons? Please!
