All of these men are War Criminals
All of these men are aware that the use of WMD’s (depleted uranium) is in violation of the Geneva Convention
How can the UN Secretary General (or should that be the US Secretary General) authorize “ALL NECESSARY FORCE” to protect the people of Libya when the very use of such weapons will kill thousands in a very slow and painful way? How can Ban Ki-moon allow the US, UK and NATO to go on another turkey shoot on the scale that we have seen over the last 10 days? How can the UN even authorize war when it is supposed to avoid conflict? Now we have this so called handover from US control to NATO control but for the time being the US and UK are firing off as much DU as they possibly can before this event actually becomes an operational reality. The US, UK, France and coalition air superiority is intentionally aiding the rebel army to push forward in a very unbalanced conflict………it is like fighting someone with their hand tied behind their backs…….how can this fragmented, undisciplined small army achieve anything without the support of the west and the backdoor supply of military equipment from over the border (Egypt)……do we have any proof that military hardware is coming over from Egypt……well I can see one load that is heading their way: “Four armored vehicles from Osh, Kyrgyzstan or from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, to Cairo , Egypt.”……..oh dear who let that slip out you might ask?
So again we see the Egyptian puppet government turning their backs on their Muslim brothers just like they have done with the Palestinians…….Egypt has been in bed with both the US and Israel for some time!!!
We now see that other war criminal Hilary Clinton arriving in the UK tomorrow for yet another scaremonger tactic as she keeps pushing for a rapid regime change. Again we will hear the spin about saving the people of Libya….pity she did not hitch a ride on a Tomahawk that her fellow servicemen are currently firing.
The meeting in London (the axis of evil) is already being hyped up with both Cameron and Sarkozy warning the Ghadaffi supporters should consider giving up or suffer the consequences………is that a threat being made to civilians?
Italy is pushing for Ghadaffi to be allowed to leave Libya (with his son)….which may be on the card, and if so then this certainly will have to be the best conspiracy of all time.
I notice that Germany is currently engaging in a conference call with Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy…..I find it incredible that a country that abstained from voting has now become a major player in decision making…….I wonder what tag they gave this group G3.5. I guess we should not worry about the .5 as she will not be in office for too much longer anyway.
Maybe you are now asking how can the excessive use of depleted uranium by the US, UK and France constitute as a war crime or how does it breach the Geneva Convention….you may be shocked to learn that it violates the Geneva Convention in many ways…….here I will name a few:
Depleted uranium weapons are recognized as radioactive poison gas weapons developed illegally under the Manhattan Project in World War II by the United States Government. Already illegal and in violation of the 1925 Geneva Poison Gas Protocol, in 1943 depleted uranium weapons were described as a “highly mobile indiscriminate killer and permanent terrain contaminant,” recommended for development in the declassified Manhattan Project memo dated October 30, 1943.
Airflow charts of the region around Iraq demonstrate how the depleted uranium gas and dust is widely circulated in many directions, depending on altitude and seasonal changes including fog, rainfall, snow, and air circulation:
In the chart below you will see that Libya (White square) emits its radioactive nanoparticles (aerosols) over a very wide area and eventually spans the world. Every single day brings with it a new direction and weather pattern.
Leuren Moret (a US nuclear lab whistleblower) describes how DU violates the Geneva Convention:
Depleted uranium poison gas weapons fail the “Territorial Test” because radioactive toxic aerosols they produce on the battlefield escape from and continue to act off of the battlefield.
The “Territorial Test” is one of four tests used to determine the legality of weapons under international humanitarian law, and requires that weapons must not leave the territory of the battlefield (territorial test), continue to act after the battle is over (temporal test), be unduly damaging to the environment (environmental test), and be unduly inhumane in causing death and suffering (humaneness test).
Depleted uranium radioactive poison gas and particulates [see Fig. 3], produced on the battlefield, including sub-micron sizes, that are carried by air masses and rapidly become components of global atmospheric dust, leaving the area of the battlefield: indiscriminately, permanently, and cumulatively contaminating air, water, soil, food, and civilian populations at local, regional, and global distances from the battlefield.
Depleted uranium weapons fail the “Temporal Test” since they continue to act after the battle is over. Depleted uranium radioactive poison gas and particulates including sub-micron sizes, have a half-life of 4.46 billion years. It takes ten half-lives (4.46 billion years ½ life for Uranium 238) for small amounts of radioactivity to diminish to an insignificant amount. In the case of the high tonnage amounts of depleted uranium weapons used in Iraq since August 2, 1990, to the present, it will take longer than ten half-lives or more than 44.6 billion years for the global radioactive pollution from this pernicious poison to diminish.
I would add to Lauren’s comments that in the case of Libya they have fired well over 300 missiles that each contain around 350kg of DU in some shape or form which amounts to at least 105,000 kg…….if one can then imagine the millions of nanoparticles that are now in transit around the Mediterranean Region, UK, Europe and beyond. This is not counting all the other DU weapons such as bunker busters and bombs etc or the fact that secondary contamination is on going as the earths carpet of DU succumbs to secondary contamination by the movement of vehicles and strong winds such as sand storms etc.
Leuren’s account continues:
Depleted uranium weapons fail the “Environmental Test” being unduly harmful to the local, regional, and global environment. The depleted uranium radioactive poison gas and particulates, including sub-micron sizes, unduly harm the environment by becoming globally mixed in one year, poisoning regional water sources where they are rained and snowed out into glaciers, lakes, and rivers such as in the Himalayas where the headwaters of nine major rivers of SE Asia originate. There are 1.3 billion people downstream from the Indus (Tibet, Pakistan, India), Ganga-Brahmaputra (India, Bangladesh), Yangtze (China), Yamuna (India), Ganges (India), Sutlej (Tibet, Punjab of India, Pakistan), Meghna (India, Bangladesh), Mekong (China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam), and the Ayeyarwady (Myanmar).
I could continue on forever giving an account as to how depleted uranium continues to violate the Geneva Convention but I think all of the above is ok as a starter. Below is a list of some of the health problems from DU:
How can Low Level Radiation (LLR) enter your body and what are the implications. Let first look at the diagram below:
As you can see from the diagram on the left there are different ways DU/LLR can enter the body. On this diagram you can see a DU fragment such as shrapnel wound (right shoulder). DU dust can also enter this wound to add to the problem.
The most complicated of all is the inhalation of nanoparticle aerosols of DU/LLR. Insoluble DU particlesdeposited in the respiratory bronchioles and alveoli will be cleared much more slowly, and, therefore, would be expected to deliver a higher radiation dose to the lung from alpha radiation. Once DU/LLR has entered the blood and irreversible cycle commences. The tissues in our bodies filter out the depleted uranium particles from the blood and cause a web of diseases called “Gulf War Syndrome”.
Unfortunately the UNEP, WHO, ICRP, IAEA, Governments, DOD’s and many other authorities (not forgetting the pharmaceutical industry) have failed to understand the health implications when DU/LLR is inhaled into the body. They have together concocted a trail of deceit and failed in their duty of care to protect the world’s populations.
We are looking at dramatic increases in many forms of cancer, diabetes, and infertility. Because DU/LLR directly attacks the genetics of our body via our DNA we are now witnessing terrible birth defects in babies.
Leuren Moret covered this aspect in my previous article when she said:
"Uranium and phosphate structures have a strong chemical affinity for each other. The DNA and the mitochondria are phosphate rich and therefore there is a strong attraction between uranium, the DNA and the mitochondria. Once the uranium has attached to the DNA and or the mitochondria it does damage from the chemical heavy metal effect, the radioactivity released and the particulate effect” “The greatest damage from radiation exposure is to the unborn foetus and this genetic damage to the foetus is passed on to all future generations. Basically uranium exposure is a slow painful death from long lingering illnesses”.
Let’s look at diabetes as an example. The IMVA article “DNA and Mitochondrial Time Bomb” covered this aspect extremely well:
The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta declares that
33% of the babies born this year will be diabetic by the year 2050.
Dr. Alan Cantwell
The article went on the say: Diabetes, which is expanding almost exponentially in the world today, can in part be traced to the increasing radiation to which we are all being exposed. Every physician knows that radiation can lead to cancer, but making a connection between depleted uranium (DU) and diabetes seems ludicrous at first glance is anything but. Most medical doctors have never heard of this but neither have they paid attention.
Unfortunately, exposure levels are increasing dramatically with each ton of vaporized depleted uranium but that is not stopping the American and British governments from manufacturing, selling and using depleted uranium weaponry.
“Depleted (DU) uranium is highly toxic to humans, both chemically as a heavy metal and radiological as an alpha particle emitter, is very dangerous when taken internally,” writes Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Canadian Epidemiologist. A new study, conducted by biochemist Dr. Diane Stearns at Northern Arizona University confirms that, separate from any radiation risks, cells exposed to uranium will bond with the metal chemically. Uranium and phosphate have a strong chemical affinity for each other and the DNA and Mitochondria are loaded with phosphate so uranium is a DNA and Mitochondria deep penetration bomb. In this same report it gave a very stern message to governments and authorities:
“As it is with the autism epidemic, the medical establishment and the government are stonewalling investigations and understanding of the runaway train that diabetes is fast becoming. We are officially recognizing the tragedy of skyrocketing diabetes rates in adults and children but the multiple causes are being ignored and so treatments are not appropriate and prevention efforts a joke. What we have to see clearly is that diabetes is actually an extremely serious warning to civilization, it is an announcement that the rising tide of radiation, mercury, other deadly chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs are poisoning humanity”.
As we have seen in more recent times (Lebanon 2006 and Gaza 2007/8) the US is still providing Israel with weapons containing uranium components that hide under their new title “Conventional Weapons”. I can assure you that these weapons are certainly not conventional and really fit into the category of “Dirty Weapons”. Dr Chris Busby has received samples from both of above locations confirming the use of both depleted and enriched weapons by the IDF.
We now see a rise in diabetes and cancers etc in Northern Israel and soon that same story will be repeated in Central and Southern Israel…..this basically means that “Israelis are killing Israelis” as well as the populations in adjacent countries and the world. If one reads some of the work carried out by Dr Chris Busby you will see that he was the first person in the UK to spill the beans on the increased levels of radiation that had gathered over England as a direct result of the “Shock and Haw” attack on Baghdad. He has connected the everyday radiation exposure to modern ailments we see today. He was quoted as saying: “There have been tremendous increases in diseases resulting from the breakdown of the immune system in the last 20 years: diabetes, asthma, AIDS and others which may have an immune-system link, such as MS and ME. A whole spectrum of neurological conditions of unknown origin has developed.”
Dr Busby has been very critical of the ICRP Model used by most governments and agencies, which in his opinion (and I might add many other experts) has grossly underestimated the effects of DU/LLR on the body by anything between 100 – 1000 times.
The following is an extract from a specialists report which included Keith Baverstock World Health Organization European Centre for Environment and Health “The risk to the lung of exposure to DU dusts cannot be inferred from the experience gained from uranium miners, or from survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, upon which the current ICRP radiological protection standards are based”.
The report went on to say that it has been convincingly demonstrated that changes, similar to those caused directly by irradiation, can be wrought in cells growing close to a cell that has been irradiated. The implication of the combined chemical and radiological transforming capability of uranium and the bystander effect, means that, in estimating its significance in causing cancer, the simple assumptions, based on committed effective dose, i.e. (committed absorbed dose to the lung, modified by a radiation weighting factor, or the fact that the radiation arises from alpha particles) as has been adopted in recent reports by the Royal Society (RS 2001), the WHO (WHO 2001) and UNEP (UNEP 2001) would be an inadequate basis for predicting risks.
Baverstock was a very experienced expert who worked for the WHO. Because of the sensitivity of Baverstock’s report the article was suppressed and withheld from public viewing.
The UN, WHO, ICRP, IAEA, Governments, DOD’s and NATO etc. still fail to accept that DU/LLR is extremely dangerous (especially when inhaled). Perhaps they should be referred to the people who carried out the US Army training programmes. People like Major Doug Rokke who’s credits covered a broad range of expertise, namely U.S. Army Medical Command's Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (NBC) teaching, medical response, and special operations team - U.S. Army Depleted Uranium Assessment team during Gulf War 1(Operation Desert Storm) and U.S. Army's Depleted Uranium Project director from 1994 - 1995. He developed the congressionally mandated education and training materials and wrote U.S. Army Regulation 700-48, the U.S. Army PAM 700-48, and the U.S. Army's common task for DU incidents. Doug knows intimately how dangerous DU is when he himself became a victim to this terrible illness.
Let’s look at another expert in the training area who had direct links with the DOD and US Army. How can the respective DOD’s and Senior Military Officers play down the risk from DU when they themselves send in experts to carry out the training of combatants? U.S. Army Reserve Col. J. Wakayama. Col Wakayam (Office of the Secretary of Defense – Director of Training - Combat Support) gave an official slide presentation at Fort Belvoir, Va. on the 20th of August 2002. In which he read out the dangers of exposure to DU. Here are some of those dangers that he highlighted: DU causes - Lung cancer, cell damage, targets the kidneys and bone, the cultured human stem bone cell with DU also transformed the cells to become carcinogenic, urine samples containing uranium are mutagenic, DU can be deposited in the bone causing DNA damage, long term respiratory effects such as lung fibrosis, immune deficiency, extra risk of leukaemia and other cancers. He put a great emphasis on the risks to children playing in the rubble/dust and also talked about the damage to the environment i.e. soil, water etc.
I will now provide extracts from the following publication:
Teratogenicity of depleted uranium aerosols: A review from an epidemiological perspective. Authors are Rita Hindin,1 Doug Brugge, 2 and Bindu Panikkar3
1- Biostatistics and Epidemiology Concentration, University of Massachusetts School
of Public Health and Health Sciences, Amherst, MA, USA 01003
2Department of Public Health and Family Medicine, Tufts University School of Medicine, 136 Harrison Ave., Boston, MA, USA 02111

They first introduce DU as follows: “It has pyrophoric properties and may spontaneously ignite at room temperature in air, oxygen and water. These unique properties make it appealing for use in many civilian and military applications”. As we have already discussed its use covers almost every weapon in some form or another namely Bullets, Penetrators, Missile nose cones, Bomb and Shell shaped charged liners (SCL’s) or to act as a counterbalance. It must also be noted that DU also contains traces of Plutonium and other Isotopes. If one wishes to further extends the abuse of the nuclear waste industry we can add to that list Enriched Uranium (EU). Basically we are looking at dirty missiles, dirty bombs, dirty shells and dirty bullets that contain such components.
The report goes on to say that the quantity of aerosol production is relative to the hardness of the target and generally is around 10-35% and up to 70% when the DU catches fire (which in normally does). It also states that the initial fallout area is around 26 miles and as we have already discussed the aerosol has the capacity to travel vast distances. Once deposited on the ground the aerosols settle as partially oxidized DU dust. Potential contamination of ground water is another possibility – weathering could mobilize the metal into additional media.
On the health/medical side of DU the report states “Alpha radiation is only hazardous when internalized in the body, but once deposited in living tissue it releases its energy in a concentrated area causing greater damage than beta or gamma radiation” “large quantities of DU and/or radioactive decay products and other radioactive impurities can lead to substantial external exposure”.
Their evidence became even more compelling when it revealed that A DU tank found by the U.S Army radiological team emitted 260 – 270 millirads of radiation per hour compared to the safety limit of 100 millirads per year. A pile of jet-black dust registered a count of 9839 emissions in one minute, a level more than 300 times the average background level.
At this point we should also make it very clear that persons attending such contaminated locations are not protected by the conventional protective clothing, especially gasmasks as they only screen out larger particles. With DU aerosols we are talking about something the size of 0.1 microns. I think it was ironic that in many of the military briefs it quoted that in the event you did not have a gasmask one could use a tissue or other items of clothing to screen your inhalation of DU Dust!
The article warns: “Trends toward increased use of DU by industry and, more recently, in warfare suggest that there are large and growing numbers of exposed people worldwide, both at production sites and in areas where DU weapons are deployed. While there is no clear basis for estimating the number of people who have been breathing and ingesting food and water in areas contaminated with aerosolized DU particles, the ever-expanding exposure of humans and the environment to DU particles, several micrometer and smaller, mobile and inhalable, necessitates a sense of urgency to better understand this hazard”.
They further point out that” inhalation is the main route of human exposure both in combat and non-combat situations. Once inhaled, DU particles <5 μm can lodge deep in the lung in alveoli and can be transported by macrophages to the lymph tissues. Thereupon, live tissue immediately adjacent to (or exposed to these) imbedded particles experience infrequent but high LET alpha irradiation along with the potential for chemical toxicity. Because the micro-particles of DU are much larger than individual solubilized molecules, they can create "hot spots" of localized alpha radiation” “while insoluble forms generally takes months to years to be absorbed. DU is organotropic and has long-term retention in its target organs, to wit the kidney and the skeletal tissue. The biological retention capability of DU in bones enhances the particulate radiation to the target organs”
This report draws attention to “biodistribution studies detail DU accumulation in the bone, kidney, reproductive system, brain and lung with verified nephrotoxic, genotoxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic properties, as well as reproductive and teratogenic alterations”.
For my part we can clearly see that evidence just keep stacking up against those authorities that continue to evade the issue of DU and continue to state it is safe!
In this same document it drew attention to research carried out as follows: Most of the past 15 years of published research on the topic comes from two groups, Domingo, and others working at the University of Barcelona in Spain and McClain, Benson, Miller, Pellmar and others affiliated with the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) in the United States. With at least 6 published studies on topic, Domingo et al. have demonstrated that both oral and subcutaneous administration of UO2++ to female mice engender decreased fertility, embryonic and fetal toxicity including reduced growth and malformations (cleft palate and skeletal defects) and developmental ossification variations. A Chinese study of reproductive toxicity of enriched uranium noted damage to genetic material, dominant lethality and skeletal abnormalities in fetal rats. Chromosome aberrations in spermatogonia, DNA alterations in spermatocytes and strand breakage in sperm were specifically notified. In vitro experiments documented extensive DNA damage when UO2++ was added to DNA in the presence of an electron donor. Since DNA is particularly dense in sperm-forming cells, such cells may be especially susceptible to UO2++-derived damage. In sum, aerosolized DU is a vehicle for internal delivery of a DNA-tropic substance that is both a heavy metal and an alpha particle emitter.
This report fits into the category as an internationally recognised journal and is substantiated in the fact that it is published on the US Government Webpage.
The report puts a strong emphasis on the experience drawn up in Iraq with particular reference to Basra who bore the brunt of DU weaponry. That must also be said for Baghdad who suffered the deluge of “Shock and Haw”. The birth defects in Iraq is beyond imagination and given the half shelf life of DU (4.5 billion years) this problem will not go away….it will be passed down from generation to generation and that is why the authorities will not admit to this gross crime against humankind. The genetics of the Balkans, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza and Pakistan is at risk and obviously because these aerosols do not respect international borders the problem is fast become a global issue, as statistics are now showing. In the case of Lebanon and Gaza the term what goes around comes around resulted in cross border contamination of Israel (Israelis killing Israelis).
Finally to bring us up to the current time the following report brings even more damaging news regarding DU’s capability:
Uranium travels nerves from nose to brain. (Environmental Health News dated 31st July 2009) Tournier, BB, S Frelon, E Tourlonias, L Agez, O Delissen, I Dublineau, F Paquet, and F Petitot. 2009. Role of the olfactory receptor neurons in the direct transport of inhaled uranium to the rat brain. Toxicology Letters doi:10.1016/j.toxlet.2009.05.022.
Synopsis by Paul Eubig, DVM:
The report states radioactive uranium that is inhaled by soldiers on the battlefield and by workers in factories may bypass the brain's protective barrier by following nerves from the nose directly to the brain. Nerves can act as a unique conduit, carrying inhaled uranium from the nose directly to the brain, finds a study with rats. Once in the brain, the uranium may affect task and decision-related types of thinking.
This study provides yet another example of how some substances can use the olfactory system – bypassing the brain's protective blood barrier – to go directly to the brain. Titanium nanoparticles and the metals manganese, nickel, and thallium have been shown to reach the brain using the same route. Military personnel and people who work in uranium processing plants are exposed to the weak radioactive element via wounds or by breathing. Exposure may affect brain function; cognitive skills are lowered in soldiers who carry uranium-laced shrapnel.
The researchers – taking advantage of the fact that uranium can exist in different forms, or isotopes – used rats to compare how the element travels through the body if it is inhaled or injected into the blood. The animals breathed in one isotope at levels similar to those encountered on a battlefield where depleted uranium weapons are used. They were also injected with a different isotope. Researchers compared the levels of the two isotopes indifferent regions of the brain. The inhaled isotope accumulated at 2 to 3 times higher levels than the injected isotope in the olfactory (smell) paths from the nose to the brain and in the frontal cortex and hypothalamus of the brain. This is concerning because the front part of the brain controls executive function, which is the broad ability to gather information, make decisions and initiate action.
The scientists then chemically damaged the olfactory nerves in the nose. The rats with the damaged nerves had three times less uranium in the olfactory system than the rats with intact olfactory nerves. These finding suggests that inhaled uranium can travel directly from the nose along the olfactory nerves to the front of the brain. The olfactory pathway, then, plays an important role in inhaled uranium reaching the brain.
It is not known from this study if soldiers and civilian workers that breathe uranium could be at an even higher risk for cognitive effects or if inhaled uranium may affect brain function in similar ways as when it is carried through the blood. The scientists then chemically damaged the olfactory nerves in the nose. The rats with the damaged nerves had three times less uranium in the olfactory system than the rats with intact olfactory nerves. These finding suggests that inhaled uranium can travel directly from the nose along the olfactory nerves to the front of the brain. The olfactory pathway, then, plays an important role in inhaled uranium reaching the brain. It is not known from this study if soldiers and civilian workers that breathe uranium could be at an even higher risk for cognitive effects or if inhaled uranium may affect brain function in similar ways as when it is carried through the blood.
What I find most disturbing is the fact that the US, UK, NATO and Israel are still using these weapons on a daily basis, not only in action but also in training exercises and on firing ranges around the globe. Finally we have both the US and Israel contemplating an attack on the nuclear facilities in Iran. Do they fully understand the implications? Do they fully understand that to use uranium based weapons on a nuclear facility will have catastrophic effects on the entire Middle East and the world?
I will now list some current War Criminals in addition to the leaders I have shown above but in doing so it falls short of the final list which must include all Foreign Ministers and Ministers of Defence all of whom have been in office since the start of the war in the Balkans......these current figures certainly head the list as they all know what they are doing currently in Libya and today they will all meet to plan their next satanic move on a country they will soon rape of all its natural resources......such is the greed that exists in their “Geo Political Mind”..........so here are the next line up of “Scumbags”.
Another bunch of scheming war criminals
Can one ever imagine that the US-UK-France will today decide on the fate of Libya (outside of the UN remit) and then decide on how they will run Libya once that have forced their “Long Planned Regime Change”…….yes folks you have seen this in Iraq and Afghanistan and now you are going to see it again in Libya………can one ever accept that the US as so far re written the constitution of Iraq and Afghanistan and where next?
So all you greedy evil members of the “New World Order”…..just remember we are on to you and one day you will be punished for your war crimes.
Last but not least last just remember that the British Government under the control of that other “Scumbag” Tony Blair did many deals with Ghadaffi regarding BP oil contracts in Libya and the “Lockerbie Bomber”…….which was in my opinion yet another false flag operation as was 9/11 and 7/1……..such is the nature of the sick world we live in!!
If I could name anyone that heads the list of war criminals it would have to be Tony Blair.
If I could name anyone that heads the list of corruption and massive fraud it would have to be Tony Blair.
If I could name one establishment and address that supports this man and also operates massive fraud from within its bowels, it would be Arlington Associates at 22 Arlington Street, London which is attached to the Ritz Hotel….another den of associated links!!
Stayed tuned for more grime and slime as we uncover more massive fraud and peodophilia that is so rampant in our society including the political elite.
