Horrific Iraqi birth defects: Civilian and U.S. troop casualties linked to Depleted Uranium dust

Special to The Canadian
It is apparent that the “War on Terrorism” is not about surgically stopping “terrorist cells” from spreading destruction. If that were the case, there would not be over 1 million Iraqi civilian casualties, and other huge death tolls among civilians in the Middle East.
The 9/11 truth movement has sought to critically discuss and explore the legitimacy of the “War on Terrorism”. Its findings suggest that the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001 was a ‘contrived event’, similar to the Reichstag Fire which Adolf Hilter used to help trigger World War II.
Death tolls among Middle East population groups and soldiers from the U.S. and NATO countries have been substantively caused by the use of Depleted Uranium (DU). The only reason to use DU would be to cause mass civilian casualties far beyond the ‘point of detonation’ supposedly intended for “terrorists”.
The use of DU documented by many activists, injestivative journalists, researchers and scientists is tantamount to a “Crime Against Humanity”. Is the official “War on Terrorism” actually another ”Eugenics War” against whole population groups which eventually morphed into World War II?
Eugenics evolved as a racist-inspired scientific movement which embraced social Darwinism and the need for elites to execute “racial hygiene“, human experimentation, and the extermination of “undesired” population groups.
Elites in the Eugenics Movement sought to perpetrate wars, foster the spread of diseases, and famine, so that the “strongest survived” and could use available “scarce resources”. Elites in the Eugenics Movement view war to not only be necessary but desirable.
"When a DU round or bomb strikes a hard target, most of its kinetic energy is converted to heat " sufficient heat to ignite the DU. From 40% to 70% of the DU is converted to extremely fine dust particles of ceramic uranium oxide (primarily dioxide, though other formulations also occur). Over 60% of these particles are smaller than 5 microns in diameter, about the same size as the cigarette ash particles in cigarette smoke and therefore respirable."
"Because conditions are so chaotic in Iraq, the medical infrastructure has been greatly compromised. In terms of both cancer and birth defects due to DU, only a small fraction of the cases are being reported."
"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 an 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?" The photos are horrendous, they can be viewed on the following website"
Ross B. Mirkarimi, a spokesman at The Arms Control Research Centre stated:
"Unborn children of the region are being asked to pay the highest price, the integrity of their DNA."
Prior to her death from leukemia in Sept. 2004, Nuha Al Radi , an accomplished Iraqi artist and author of the "Baghdad Diaries" wrote:
"Everyone seems to be dying of cancer. Every day one hears about another acquaintance or friend of a friend dying. How many more die in hospitals that one does not know? Apparently, over thirty percent of Iraqis have cancer, and there are lots of kids with leukemia."
"The depleted uranium left by the U.S. bombing campaign has turned Iraq into a cancer-infested country. For hundreds of years to come, the effects of the uranium will continue to wreak havoc on Iraq and its surrounding areas."
This excerpt in her diary was written in 1993, after Gulf War I (Approximately 300 tons of DU ordinance, mostly in desert areas) but before Operation Iraqi Freedom, (Est. 1,700 tons with much more near major population centers). So, it's 5-6 times worse now than it was when she wrote than diary entry!! Estimates of the percentage of D.U. which was 'aerosolized' into fine uranium oxide dust are approximately 30-40%. That works out to over one million pounds of dust scattered throughout Iraq.
As a special advisor to the World Health Organization, the United Nations, and the Iraqi Ministry of Health, Dr. Ahmad Hardan has documented the effects of DU in Iraq between 1991 and 2002.
"American forces admit to using over 300 tons of DU weapons in 1991. The actual figure is closer to 800. This has caused a health crisis that has affected almost a third of a million people. As if that was not enough, America went on and used 200 tons more in Bagdad alone during the recent invasion.
I don"t know about other parts of Iraq, it will take me years to document that.
"In Basra, it took us two years to obtain conclusive proof of what DU does, but we now know what to look for and the results are terrifying."
"By far the most devastating effect is on unborn children. Nothing can prepare anyone for the sight of hundreds of preserved fetuses " scarcely human in appearance. Iraq is now seeing babies with terribly foreshortened limbs, with their intestines outside their bodies, with huge bulging tumors where their eyes should be, or with a single eye-like Cyclops, or without eyes, or without limbs, and even without heads. Significantly, some of the defects are almost unknown outside textbooks showing the babies born near A-bomb test sites in the Pacific."
