TODAY. Everything’s OK – depleted uranium is just a pretty harmless “common type of munition”
“This is Eman’s sixth year at the hospital, and her 25th as a physician. Over that time span, she says, she has seen an array of congenital anomalies, most commonly cleft palates, but also spinal deformities, hydrocephaly, and tumors. At the same time, miscarriages and premature births have spiked among Iraqi women, she says, particularly in areas where heavy U.S. military operations occurred as part of the 1991 Gulf War and the 2003 to 2011 Iraq War. “ –Environmental Ruin in Modern Iraq – largely due to depleted uranium more https://nuclear-news.net/2021/12/25/environmental-ruin-in-modern-iraq-largely-due-to-depleted-uranium/
But we don’t need to worry now, as we have it from the highest authority – White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby – to reassure us that depleted uranium is OK . “The ammunition, which enhances ability to overcome defenses on tanks, ‘is not radioactive’ – a commonplace type of munition“
Oh thank goodness. For a bit there, I was worried that the children in the Ukraine war might suffer the miseries continuing in Iraq, from the use of depleted uranium weapons, and also the sufferings of the U.S. soldiers.
But then I remembered that it would be only Russian children, probably, and they don’t matter, do they? And while it might be a pity if Ukrainian soldiers got sick, but the main thing is that no USA soldiers would be at risk.
Why do we continue to allow ourselves to be reassured by these outright criminal liars from the White House?
