Evidence that Depleted Uranium is intended as a weapon of genocide

DAVID ROTHSCUM April 10, 2010

Now that the horrors of Depleted Uranium are being revealed to the world, we can expect for apologists to begin moving into the next phase of damage control within the coming months. It will likely be claimed that the depopulation of much of the Middle East was an unfortunate result of the DU that the Pentagon used because it was not aware of the health effects it would have.

This article is meant to demonstrate why this is not the case. The radioactive waste is intentionally used to depopulate and economically cripple the nations that the United States government declared war on. A declassified memorandum from 1943 explains how radioactive material can be used as a gas warfare instrument.1 It mentions that:

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. It has been estimated that one millionth of a gram accumulating in a person’s body would be fatal. There are no known methods of treatment for such a casualty

Of course, Depleted Uranium fits this description. According to the Pentagon, upon hitting it’s target, 70% of the Uranium vaporizes2, and turns into microscopic particles that enter it’s victims body. More that 50% of Depleted Uranium particles found in veterans are smaller than 1.5 μm.3

Another document, from 1948, shows that the plan evolved, and began resembling what we now know as Depleted Uranium.4
The United States began looking for ways to weaponize radioactive material. It’s top priorities were:

• 1 — Weapons to contaminate “populated or otherwise critical areas for long periods of time.”

• 2 — Munitions combining high explosives with radioactive material “to accomplish physical damage and radioactive contamination simultaneously.”

• 3 — Air and-or surface weapons that would spread contamination across an area to be evacuated, thereby rendering it unusable by enemy forces.

Again, Depleted Uranium fits the bill. Depleted Uranium is combined with high explosives, causing the radioactive waste to turn into microscopic dust that contaminates an entire area. It can do this for long periods of time.

A final point needs to be made, that the United States does not solely use Depleted Uranium, the least radioactive of the various types of nuclear waste out there. Depleted Uranium has to be distinguished from other forms of nuclear waste, that contain artificial isotopes, produced in nuclear reactors. These products are even more dangerous because they have shorter half-lives and are thus more radioactive than Depleted Uranium. It appears that the United States only claims it uses “Depleted” Uranium as a cover for the various types of radioactive materials it actually uses in it’s munition. The United Nations has found Uranium-236, an artificial isotope of Uranium that does not occur naturally, at sites targeted by NATO in Kosovo.5 This means that what was used was actually the waste-product from a nuclear reactor. There is no reason for the United States to resolve to using recycled uranium besides Depleted Uranium. This is not a case of the US resorting to using reprocessed nuclear waste because depleted uranium is becoming scarce. The United States currently stores 480.000 tons of Depleted Uranium.6

Other elements that are found in “Depleted Uranium” include plutonium, neptunium and americium.7 The fact that the United States choses to use even more dangerous forms of nuclear waste than it has to, proves the fact that it lied about the true purpose of Depleted Uranium. The idea that Depleted Uranium is used for it’s high density, and self-sharpening properties is simply a cover for it’s true function as an instrument of genocide.

  1. The radioactive contamination of DU is minimal. The glow in the dark buttons on your remote control are as radioactive as DU. *yawn*.
    When are you DU conspiracy theorists/radiophobes going to bother to actually learn something about nuclear physics?
    In the meanwhile, I’ll just have to sleep comfortably with the Uranium-238 and Cobalt-60 on my nightstand. Maybe my kid will have 12 arms!

  2. Scientists in Kosovo suspected links between the use of depleted uranium and cases of leukaemia among former peacekeepers. The number of cancers and birth defects in Iraq has skyrocketed.

    In 1997, while citing experiments by others in which 84 percent of dogs exposed to inhaled uranium died of cancer of the lungs, Dr. Asaf Durakovic, then Professor of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Georgetown University in Washington was quoted as saying,

    “The [US government’s] Veterans Administration asked me to lie about the risks of incorporating depleted uranium in the human body.”

    At that time Dr. Durakovic was a colonel in the U.S. Army. He has since left the military, to found the Uranium Medical Research Center, a privately funded organization with headquarters in Canada.

  3. All of that is irrelevant, since 1) it is completely circumstantial
    2) because it doesn’t at all go into actual levels of exposure and
    3) because the toxicity and radioactive effects of DU (which is nothing more than naturally occuring Uranium-238) has been well known, as humans have been exposed to it for thousands of years. It’s about as bad as any other heavy metal. The radioactivity levels are irrelevant. It can be found on popular ceramic dinner plates. I’ve found Uranium ore near places I live.

    Bogus, bogus, bogus, nonsense, assertions and total ignorance of actual evidence and well known facts about U-238. People have taken this stuff as a sort of quack cure for diseases – intentionally eaten and drank water laced with it. All attention seeking, fear-mongering BS just like the nonsense that claims cellphones give you cancer.

  4. Cause and effect are never irrelevant. Suppression of research about DU is similar to that about Agent Orange: Wait till the effects on Veterans show up and the costs hit the stratosphere.

    • So you’re just going to ignore everything I said, like the fact that far higher doses to fallout heavy metals and radiation never caused birth defects or cancer at a rate that would make it even plausible for it to happen with something like U-238, and that U-238’s effects on human beings have been well known for decades; that it surrounds us in semiconductors, native soil, and everything else?
      Jesus Christ. This is like arguing with Alex Jones.

  5. I’m not trying to argue or etc. but I don’t accept that “real” science is always reliable or unbiased, and it is also very lucrative for nuclear waste from power plants to be disposed of on battlefields- far, far away.

    I keep this subject in my “suspect” category. There are plenty of people with substantial reputations who think DU is dangerous. If the cancer and birth defect epidemics in the Balkans and ME are not due to DU- how do you account for them?

  6. “If the cancer and birth defect epidemics in the Balkans”
    They’re not epidemic, at least not any more than you’d expect for extremely poor people in a war-torn country. Check out the links at Depleted Cranium, almost everything used as ‘evidence’ is in fact bogus and proven forgeries, and ‘experts’ like Bokke are in fact nothing of the kind.
    http://www.ntanet.net/traprock.html
    Just like cell phone cancer, it’s a bunch of made up and parroted statistics with no hard backing whatsoever.
    Anyways, there is basically no evidence that even very heavy doses of radiation can cause birth defects; look at the studies done in Hiroshima. Gulf War veterans exposed to DU have a lower incidence of birth defects than those who were never deployed in the same time period.
    And, as I have said repeatedly, millions of people for thousands of years have been exposed to U-238, which is exactly what Depleted Uranium is; in fact i has lower levels of U-234 and U-235, so it is actually safer. People intentionally expose themselves to it in fairly large quantities. Most studies done indicate that DU is actually less harmful than regular old lead (for example, it doesn’t seem to have the same nervous system effects) and that low-levels of radiation improve the genetic repair and cell-division capacity of your body.

    From a basic science standpoint, the idea that U-238 would be extremely toxic or dangerous doesn’t jibe to begin with, and when you look at the evidence this is exactly what you find.

  7. And I’m not a person who is inclined to defend the military or the government. In fact I’m a libertarian anarchist. But this is just bad science, it’s political junk. It’s exactly like the irrational fears about genetically modified foods.

  8. It is commonly accepted that radiation exposure can cause genetic mutations and birth defects. I’m susprised at your authoritative statement to the contrary.

    “Radiation during the first three months of pregnancy can cause birth defects such as microcephaly (small head), spina bifida (a hole in the back that marks the premature end of the spinal nerves), blindness, or cleft palate.” http://my.clevelandclinic.org/disorders/birth_defects/hic_birth_defects.aspx

  9. “It is commonly accepted that radiation exposure can cause genetic mutations and birth defects. I’m susprised at your authoritative statement to the contrary.”
    Radiation certainly can cause genetic mutations, but it’s never been shown to happen detrimentally except in very high levels; and that includes levels above people who were exposed to massive amounts around Hiroshima and never had any problems.
    There is no evidence that radiation causes birth defects, again, look at the studies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A birth defect from direct exposure to high levels of radiation is just a redundant, that IS genetic mutation. There is no evidence, however, that even high levels (causing cancer, for example) can cause birth defects in children conceived after exposure.

    The common flaw is the idea that there are ‘no safe levels’ of radiation, which is absurd; it is the same as saying there are no safe levels of sunlight. Low levels of radiation are harmless or even beneficial, and even higher levels of radiation can be harmless. Most of the danger from nuclear radiation, unless you get absolutely huge doses from something like Chernobyl or close-range atomic detonation, is simply inhaling large particles of short-half life materials like plutonium; which tend to cause damage because of high levels of unshielded, close range and long term irradiation. Most normal radiation, alpha particles, are easily blocked by your skin.

    And, as I have said, something like U-238 has such ridiculously low levels of radiation as to be irrelevant. The amount of U-238 it would take to give you radiation poisoning would kill you from heavy metal toxicity long before that.
