Radioactive Poisoning of Middle East

The use of uranium-enriched munitions in the theater of war in the Middle East and Afghanistan is one of the more sadistic sides of the US imperialism, on par with the barbaric and terroristic nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In this regard, our collective has in the past been among those raising the alarms on this issue, in particular in an Open Letter to Mr. Nader.

Of course the most eloquent and perhaps the best qualified advocate against the use of uranium-enriched munitions is Leuren Moret, a geoscientist who quit working at the Livermore National Laboratory, so that she could courageously and tirelessly blow the whistle on this most noxious of weaponry being deployed by the US imperialists in their wars, starting in 1991 in the first Gulf War, then in the Balkans, and now again in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The clinical evidence of the dreadful effects of DU (’depleted’ uranium) is incontrovertible. For a latest entry, please read this article, Radioactive Wounds of War, by the honorable Dave Lindorff, found on In These Times.
