Depleted Uranium Contamination: A Crime against Humanity

This article is part of a longer essay on Depleted Uranium weapons, nuclear reactors and their environmental health impacts.
In this article the long term consequences of radiation contamination
from unilateral aggression of the US and NATO countries on South and
West Asia are discussed. Afpak region is being bombed daily and the cold
blooded murder of nine kids out of the seventeen killed is just a small
blip when billions are done in.
The world needs a public trial of political leaders for war crimes and genocide.
Depleted Uranium or DU  encased bombs that have been used since 1991
by US and NATO forces knowing well that the use of DU weapons is illegal
being weapons of mass destruction [WMD] and amounts to War Crimes.
These weapons were used in Gulf War 1 against Iraq, then in the Balkans
and later, after 9/11 events, in Afghanistan, Iraq, North Africa, Libya
and now being used in Drone bombings in Pakistan.
“When 20 years ago I stated at the United Nations Conference on the
Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro that a species was in
danger of extinction, I had fewer reasons than today for warning about a
danger that I was seeing perhaps 100 years away.” Fidel Castro Ruz -

‘Depleted Uranium’ has nothing depleted about it: when this potent hard
metal hits a solid surface like concrete or a battle tank, the
temperature at the point of impact reaches over 40000C and turns the
projectile into uranium oxide gas. These gases are picked up by the wind
and carried all over the world creating vast areas of secondary
contamination. Based on the population within the contamination map [Map
1], over 35% of India’s population received a heavy dosing of DU
aerosolized uranium nano particles within months of the start of Afghan
and Iraq wars. 
The total estimated population within the two circles is nearly a
billion.  ‘The capitals of 19 countries are within 1000 mile radius
and include New Delhi (621 miles), Islamabad (232), Bishkek (651),
Beirut (515), Cairo (806), Ankara (785), Jerusalem (546), Damascus
(468), Kuwait City (347), Nicosia (643), Teheran (429), Abu Dhabi (856),
Amman (503), Riyadh (615), Ashgabat (645) and so on.’  Countries
like India, Pakistan, Nepal, Afghanistan, Iraq, and some Central Asian
States do not even have well established, dependable cancer screening
facilities, let alone determining whether the illness is due to depleted
uranium contamination or careless handling of toxic pesticides in the
farms as was fobbed off by a very ‘respectable’ Indian environmental
group. If you think that the population of contaminated regions has gone
up, think again; it may have dropped significantly and not even India
conducts honest Census operation. Asia, Europe and North Africa are
slowly becoming sterile; the only virile bastards are those very leaders
who screw 4 or 5 year old boys and girls, white boys and girls, often
kidnapped by their own police. ...
