The Sunday Times Online, February 19, 2006, reported on a shocking scientific study by British scientists Dr. Chris Busby and Saoirse Morgan: “Did the use of Uranium weapons in Gulf War 2 result in contamination of Europe? Evidence from the measurements of the Atomic Weapons Establishment, Aldermaston, Berkshire, UK”. The highest levels of depleted uranium ever measured in the atmosphere in Britain, were transported on air currents from the Middle East and Central Asia, from Tora Bora bombing in Afghanistan in 2001, and during Gulf War 2 in Iraq in 2003. Out of concern for the public, the official British government air monitoring facility at Aldermaston was established years ago, to measure radioactive emissions from British nuclear power plants and atomic weapons facilities. The British government facility was taken over 3 years ago by Halliburton and refused at first to release air monitoring data, as required by law, to Dr. Busby. An international expert on low level radiation, Busby serves as an official advisor on British government committees, and co-authored an independent report on low level radiation with 45 scientists, the European Committee on Radiation Risk (ECRR), for the European Parliament. He was able to get air monitoring data through a Freedom of Information request using a new British law effective January 1, 2005, but the data for 2003 was removed. He obtained that from a different British government agency.
Aldermaston is one of many nuclear facilities throughout Europe that regularly monitor atmospheric radiation levels, transported by atmospheric sand and dust storms, or air currents, from radiation sources in North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. After the “Shock and Awe” campaign in Iraq in 2003, larger sand and dust particles from 1-5 microns in diameter were captured on filters in Britain, with the superfine particles of depleted uranium. The particles, in a range of diameters, had been transported to Britain from uranium battlefields as far as 2600 miles away in 7-9 days. The radiation measured in the atmosphere quadrupled within a few weeks after the beginning of the 2003 campaign, at levels that required an official alert to the British Environment Agency.
In addition to depleted uranium data gathered in previous studies on Kosovo and Bosnia by Dr. Busby, the Aldermaston air monitoring data provided continuous depleted uranium levels in Britain from other wars. Extensive video news footage of the 2003 Iraq war, and earlier in Fallujah, provided irrefutable documented evidence that the US has illegally used depleted uranium bullets and warheads in bunker buster bombs dropped in cities on the civilian Iraqi population. The request for this data from Aldermaston by Dr. Busby was warranted, to establish verification of Iraq 2003 depleted uranium levels in the atmosphere. It is now clear why Halliburton refused to release the 2003 data to him, because it establishes that depleted uranium is an indiscriminate weapon, and meets the definition of a WMD in two out of three categories under US Code TITLE 50,CHAPTER 40 Sec. 2302. It is a weapon that also violates US military law because the US has signed onto the Hague and Geneva Conventions and the 1925 Geneva Gas Protocol.
The recent documentary film BEYOND TREASON details the horrific results of depleted uranium exposure of American troops serving in the Gulf region in 1991, and the civilians continuing to live in permanently contaminated regions of the Middle East which are now permanently uninhabitable. After the US Navy moved depleted uranium bombing and gunnery ranges from Vieques Island in Puerto Rico several years ago to Australia, health effects are already being reported in Australia. In the documentary film BLOWIN' IN THE WIND, a family with two normal teenage daughters, living near the bombing range where depleted uranium has been used, showed photos of their baby born recently with severe birth defects and died after 5 days. Global increases since 1991 of melanoma, infant mortality, and frog die-offs can only be explained by an environmental contaminant. Alarming global increases in diabetes, with high correlation to depleted uranium wars in Iraq, Bosnia/Kosovo, and Afghanistan, demonstrate that diabetes is a sensitive indicator and a rapid response to internal depleted uranium exposure. Americans in 2003 reported visiting Iraqi relatives in Baghdad who were suffering from an epidemic of diabetes. After returning to the US following 2-3 weeks in Iraq, they discovered within a few months that they too had diabetes. Japanese human shields and journalists who worked in Iraq during the 2003 war are sick and now have symptoms typical of depleted uranium exposure.
The British government denied that Iraq was the source of the depleted uranium measured at Aldermaston. “Establishment scientists” blamed it on local sources or on natural uranium in the Iraq environment. This is contradicted by the evidence of sand and dust found on the filters, transported with the depleted uranium from the same region. The natural abundance of uranium in the crust of the earth is 2.4 parts per million, which would not become concentrated to the high levels measured in Britain during a long journey from the Middle East. The transport process over thousands of miles would dilute the concentration rather than increase it. There are no known uranium mines in Iraq indicating that it is not environmentally enriched in uranium. Government sources blamed local sources in Britain such as nuclear power plants, but that would also leave evidence of fission products on the filters which was not reported. The lowest levels measured at monitoring stations around Aldermaston were at the facility, which means it was not a possible source. Atomic weapons facilities would be more likely to produce plutonium contamination, also not reported as a co-contaminant at Aldermaston.
Dr. Keith Baverstock exposed a World Health Organization (WHO) coverup on depleted uranium in an Al Jazeera article, “Washington's Secret Nuclear War” posted on September 14, 2004. It was the most popular article ever posted on the Al Jazeera English language website. Baverstock leaked an official WHO report that he wrote, to the media several years ago after the WHO refused to publish it. He warned in the report about the mobility of, and environmental contamination from, tiny depleted uranium particles formed from US munitions. Busby's ECRR report challenged International Committee on Radiation Protection (ICRP) standards on radiation risk, and reported that the mutagenic effects of radiation determined by Chernobyl studies are actually 1000 times higher than the ICRP risk model predicts. The report also states that a separate study is needed for depleted uranium exposure risks, because it may be far more toxic than nuclear weapons or nuclear power plant exposures. In July of 2005, the National Academy of Sciences reported in their new BEIR VII report on low level radiation, that there is “no safe level of exposure”. The report also finally admitted that very low levels are more harmful per unit of radiation than higher levels of exposure, also known as the “supralinear” effect.
This is extremely alarming information on low level radiation risk, since the Aldermaston data confirms global transport of depleted uranium dust is occurring. Dr. Katsuma Yagasaki, a Japanese physicist at the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa, has reported that the atomicity equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs has been released into the global atmosphere since 1991, from the use of depleted uranium munitions. It is completely mixed in the atmosphere in one year. The “smog of war” from Gulf War I was found in glaciers and ice sheets globally a year later. Even more alarming is the non-specific catalytic or enzyme effect from internal exposures to nanoparticles of depleted uranium. Soldiers on depleted uranium battlefields have reported that after noticing a metallic taste in their mouths, within 24-48 hours of exposure, they became sick with Gulf War syndrome symptoms.
Who is profiting from this global uranium nightmare? Dr. Jay Gould revealed in his book THE ENEMY WITHIN, that the British Royal family privately owns investments in uranium holdings worth over $6 billion through Rio Tinto Mines. The mining company was formed for the British Royal family in the late 1950's by Roland Walter “Tiny” Rowland, the Queen's buccaneer. Born in 1917 through illegitimate German parentage, he was a passionate member of the Nazi youth movement by 1933, and described as a very nasty character by German classmates who knew him intimately. His meteoric rise and protection by intel agencies and the British Crown are an indication of what an asset he has been for decades to the Queen, as Africa's most powerful Western businessman. Africa and Australia are two of the main sources of uranium. The Rothschilds control uranium supplies and prices globally, and one serves as the Queen's business manager. Filmaker David Bradbury made BLOWIN' IN THE WIND to expose depleted uranium bombing and gunnery range activities contaminating pristine areas of eastern Australia, and to expose plans to extract over $36 billion in uranium from mines in the interior over the next 6 years. Halliburton has finished construction of a 1000 mile railway from the mining area to a port on the north coast of Australia to transport the ore. The Queen's favorite American buccaneers, Cheney, Halliburton, and the Bush family, are tied to her through uranium mining and the shared use of illegal depleted uranium munitions in the Middle East, Central Asia and Kosovo/Bosnia.
God save the Queen from the guilt of her crimes of having turned Planet Earth into a death star.
