EASY Ways to Stop the Military Radioactive Contamination of Hawaii

The Army is salivating to get the 2/25th Stryker Brigade Combat Team established in Hawaii. Even volunteering one hour of your time will help! Here's how.

EASY Ways to Stop the Military Radioactive Contamination of Hawaii


The Stones belt it out like nobody’s business: "Ain't too proud to beg... ain't too proud to plead"... And personally speaking, if I have to beg and please for your sympathy, I don’t mind, ‘cause the good people of Hawaii mean that much to me!

Yes, I’m groveling, begging, and pleading for your help. I realize you don’t have any spare time, so I’m asking you to make some. And if this were not truly critical, I wouldn’t bother getting on my hands and knees now, begging, pleading for your help.

Nope, I’m not asking for a blessed dime. All I want from you is an hour, even - just one hour of your most precious commodity – your time. I’m not sure how you spend your free time, but if you’re anything like most people? Then you can probably forego an hour watching Jack Bauer save the world from the evil doers, or give up an hour salivating all over the hunky Bachelor - or, as is your preference, the eye-candy of three Platinum Blondes wiggling their cute little 20-something Bunny tails in a mind boggling ménage-a-quatre in a round bed with a filthy rich dude nearly four times their age who, it’s been rumored, has died and gone to heaven already.

All I’m begging you to do is simply turn off the “Boob” tube for just one hour tonight because our own people, the people of Hawaii, need our help right now. I’m pleading for your sympathy as I ask you to kindly stop whatever you’re doing and spend just a little time to, quite literally, help save Hawaiian Paradise!

Here’s the deal, in a nutshell. Before October 30, we need you and a whole lot of other people to write (make that a whole LOT of other people to write) public comments telling Uncle Sam why the Army’s Stryker Brigade should not be permanently stationed in Hawaii.

The Army is salivating to get the 2/25th Stryker Brigade Combat Team established in Hawaii. What are Strykers, you may wonder? Strykers are basically large, relatively fast-moving, armored, 19-ton vehicles that look like tanks.

Each Stryker vehicle has a cannon – a great big gun - that can fire Depleted Uranium, explosives, and titanium. A total of 4,000 soldiers (and their families) are hoping to be positioned permanently inside Hawaii to perform military training that reportedly prepares them for urban warfare inside cities in Iraq. And for obvious reasons, it is apparently easier to get soldiers and their families to commit to staying for long deployments in Hawaiian paradise than it is to get them to move to Colorado or Alaska!

In its Draft Environmental Impact Statement, the military has stated that they plan on using not “inert,” not “environmentally friendly,” but instead, “live fire” ammunition within Hawaii. And even the Army itself admits that positioning the 2/25th Stryker Brigade permanently inside Hawaii will have an adverse, “significant” impact upon Hawaii in more than a few ways.

The military is planning on stationing approximately 320 of these huge, eight-wheeled Stryker vehicles (and approximately 600 other vehicles, 4,000 employees, and their spouses and kids) on military bases that have been found to contain toxic and radioactive Depleted Uranium contamination.

That Uncle Sam is ever the thoughtful guy, eh?

Furthermore, according to experts of radioactive military maneuvers, allowing hundreds of Stryker vehicles to train on these grounds will “rustle up” radiation currently within the soils out into the Hawaiian air and tropical environment, rendering soldiers and their families, as well as the Hawaiian Islanders and their pristine environment [which includes dozens of endangered species of plants and wildlife, etc.] at increased risk for Uranium poisoning.

Here are simple things Hawaiians are asking you to do to help!

1) Write before October 30 and tell the Army why you do not wish the Stryker Brigade to be stationed inside Hawaii. The email address to write to is: PublicComments [at] aec.apgea.army.mil . To learn more about the impact the 2/25th Stryker Brigade Combat Team will have in Hawaii, go to http://www.sbct-seis.org/ to read more.

2) Forward the articles below everywhere!

3) Volunteer to help post articles on various alternative media sites, email groups, and blogs. Hawaiians desperately need volunteers to help with this task – and they’ll train you how to do this. All you need is a bit of time and a working computer – along with a desire to help protect Hawaii and keep it clean and safe. Please write to NoDUHawaii [at] yahoo.com today with your offer to help!

4) Forward this email to everyone you know!

I’ve never been to Hawaii, but have spoken to many lovely, warm-hearted people who do live there. Please won’t you help keep the Hawaiian people safe - and protect the closest thing to Paradise that America’s got?

Warm best wishes and Mahalo to you all!
