US Dirty Bombs

'Doctors in southern Iraq are making comparisons to the birth defects that followed the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in WWII. They have numerous photos of infants born without brains, with their internal organs outside their bodies, without sexual organs, without spines, and the list of deformities goes on and on. Such birth defects were extremely rare in Iraq prior to the large scale use of DU Weapons. Now they are commonplace. In hospitals across Iraq, the mothers are no longer asking, "Doctor, is it a boy or girl?" but rather, "Doctor, is it normal?"'

Depleted Uranium Dust in Iraq and Afghanistan

A little-known fact. Four million pounds of radioactive uranium was dropped on Iraq in 2003 alone. US missiles, smart bombs, dumb bombs, bullets, tank shells, cruise missiles all contain high amounts of radioactive uranium. Its half-life is 4.5 billion years.

The UMRC (Uranium Medical Research Center) found hundreds of Afghan civilians suffering acute symptoms of radiation poisoning and chronic symptoms of internal uranium contamination. And deformed newborn babies. News they won't show on the TV.
