Guess what? There are WMDs in Iraq

We put them there.

Hat tip to Betmo for finding this article about US soldiers who appear to have uranium sickness from depleted uranium. The Pentagon has an arsenal with depleted uranium, "thousands of shells and hundreds of tanks coated with the metal that is radioactive, chemically toxic, and nearly twice as dense as lead."

So there we are.

My heart just sinks at hearing many will have major health problems???

Iyt's not just are troops that are being exposed to this, DU has caused a myriad of health problems for the Iraqi people as well. And the radioactive sand wil blow across the land for years to come.But at least we got those WMD, right?

Glenda, it is beyond unconscionable. Let's not forget the reduction in benefits to Vets, and that they are undersupplied, as well.

Lew, you're right. It will cause horrific problems for the Iraqis, but I smell a deal with Halliburton for cleanup, don't ya think? But yes, Shrub can say see, TOLD ya so.

I have my post for Tuesday already written about this very subject. I've done several posts about DU, but I was very impressed that MSNBC devoted a 4 article online to this subject.
The pix of the birth defects that result from exposure to DU are horrifying... yet these freaks claim they are pro-life.

Tina said...

Oh yeah... Diva you asked me to email you about the post I did for Sunday about the scary things that airlines are reselling after confiscating... but I don't have your email address.

Tina, the more we shine the light of truth on this administration, the more likely we are to change minds.

As for the email, go to my profile, and click on the "email" link.

It's reprehensible and the administration should do better by the troops. But that's like waving a wand over Georgie and making him smart all of a sudden.

DivaJood said...

sumo, this is an administration without conscience. One more reason to work toward impeachment.

betmo said...

see- it's the same with anything in this admin- just pick any topic:

stem cells/abortion- protect the embryos and fetuses- let the children go hungry

support the troops- but screw the veterens- homeless, cuts in va hospitals, etc.

education no child left behind- meanwhile it's not funded and there are more dropouts as problem kids are being encouraged to go for their geds to boost school ratings.

take your pick- i have got a million of 'em.

Betmo, but they DON'T support the troops. They don't properly supply the troops. They put the troops in harms way using this depleted uranium. The troops come home, sick, and don't get help.
