Depleted Uranium: The Dirty Little Secret of High-Tech War
The true medical disability rate within the population of military who fought in Gulf War I is being downplayed by the Bush Jr. administration, and ignored by the globalist-controlled mass media.
DEPLETED URANIUM: THE DIRTY LITTLE SECRET OF HIGH-TECH WAR
The Bush Jr. Administration has been witholding and downplaying the true numbers of injured and dead soldiers in the current Middle East imbroglio. The recent announcement regarding the SURGE and the military's STOP-LOSS policy has indicated that an additional 21,000 soldiers are needed. If only 2,000 have died thus far, WHY do they need that many? Apparently, someone has been lying about the true numbers of the injured and the dead.
Of the 580,400 soldiers who fought in Bush Sr's war, more than 11,000 have died from depleted-uranium poisoning. By 2000, approximately seven and a half years after the war ended, 325,000 of that 580,400 found themselves with permanent disabilities. By this point, 56%-60% now have permanent medical disibilities. This is in stark contrast to the 5%-10% disability rates for the WWI, WWI, Korea, and Viet Nam wars.
As of October 2006, Terry Johnson, the public affairs officer of the Veterans Administration had to admit that the disabled of the Gulf Wars had finally reached the outragous number of 518,739 men and women who had become ill from DU exposure. This is tantamount to saying that if YOU serve in the military in these Un-Constitutional wars, you will have about a 90% chance of becoming either sick with a devestating and permanent illness, or killed in action.
Would anyone agree to enter the military with odds that are 90% AGAINST them? I sure wouldn't allow my child to join under those conditions.
Once someone is poisoned by DU -- there is no possibility to survive that poisoning. Depleted Uranium is a guaranteed death sentence. What's worse, is the national news media has decided to cave into demands by the Defense Department, and place a media blackout on this matter. This way, the larger public is kept in the dark about such matters of grave importance.
