    Army Admits, Confirms DU At Pohakuloa, Hawaii

    By Bob Nichols
    San Francisco Bay View Newspaper
    8-21-7


    (San Francisco) -- The Hawaiian Islands are contaminated by radiation from uranium shells the US Army confirmed Monday, August 20th, 2007 in a "Media Release."

    This terrible disaster to one of the formerly most beautiful scenic spots on earth was also confirmed earlier by sitting US Senator from Hawaii, Daniel Inouye.

    There was no word if the radiation has penetrated to the water table yet from the Hawaii Health Department. The Health Department is "cooperating" with the Army to "contain" the panic and "reassure" the public.

    Fearful and distrusting members of the public are buying their own Radiation Monitors in Hawaii.

    The Army Media Release is attached. It speaks for itself. The Army has contaminated the Hawaiian Paradise forever.

    Depleted uranium threatens thousands of lives in Basra,
    government turns blind eye –researcher


    Voices of Iraq

    Basra, Aug 27, (VOI) – Radiation levels in selected regions of Iraq's southern province of Basra warn of imminent danger to thousands of local residents who might be more prone to cancer and birth deformities, according to Khajak Vartanian, an environmental radiation measurement specialist from the province.



    "Basra has experienced an unprecedented rise in solid cancer cases during the past four years: 62 cases per 100,000 persons compared to 35 in 1997," Vartanian explained.

    a close friend or iranian decent was in iraq during the lead up to war.....

    she was visiting with several families and people their as a member of voices in the wilderness (http://vitw.org/).

    she was treated as a very respected guest, given tours, and incredible access. she got to meet with key iraqi government members - i won't name names publicly. in addition to being given tours by people she was also given "state" tours. there was one road - called the "highway of death" - that received a great deal of depleted uranium bombs in gulf war I. no one would allow her to visit this road as she was of child bearing age. they wouldn't take her near it.

    the effects of depleted uranium are devastating.

    The Pentagon's Dirty Bombers -
    Depleted Uranium Death In The USA


    By Dave Lindorff
    RENSE | 10-26-9


    The Nuclear Regulator Commission will be holding hearings tomorrow and Wednesday in Hawaii on an application by the US Army for a permit to have depleted uranium at its Pohakuloa Training Area, a vast stretch of flat land in what's called the "saddle" between the sacred mountains of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on Hawaii's Big Island, and at the Schofield Barracks on the island of Oahu.

    In fact, what the Army is asking for is a permit to leave in place the DU left over from years of test firing of M101 mortar "spotting rounds," that each contained close to half a pound of depleted uranium (DU). The Army, which originally denied that any DU weapons had been used at either location, now says that as many as 2000 rounds of M101 DU mortars might have been fired at Pohakuloa alone.

    But that's only a small part of the story.

    The Army is actually seeking a master permit from the NRC to cover all the sites where it has fired DU weapons, including penetrator shells that, unlike the M101, are designed to hit targets and burn on impact, turning the DU in the warhead into a fine dust of uranium oxide.

    Uranium particles, whether pure uranium or in an oxidized form, are alpha emitters, and can be highly carcinogenic and mutagenic if ingested or inhaled, since they can lodge in one part of the body-the kidney or lung or gonad, for example-and then irradiate surrounding cells with large, destructive alpha particles (actually helium atoms), until some gene is compromised and a cell become malignant.

    Among the sites identified by the NRC as being contaminated with DU are:...

    Citizens who allow their govts to go to war should not be ignorant of how it directly impacts them
    and not just some nameless million+ civilians in Iraq now dead or dying from the US invasion. zg

    What I would like to know is who is the person or persons from administration to administration who give the go ahead for "cover up" studies and disinformation regarding DU? Is it controlled by industry? By the military? By the President? By some obscure bureaucrat in some little known office? What is the structure and process that perpetuates such scenarios down through the years without regard to which party is in power? Why hasn't the man of peace, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Obama, either put an end to this, or at least commissioned a truly independent study of the problem? Where is the hue and cry from the Congress, other than a handful of individuals? I don't get it.

    Yes you do get it, but it is too awful even to admit as an acceptable reality. zg

    Ps - Its all of the above.

    And, pray tell, what is the motivation? Win at any cost? Lack of moral compass; i.e., only subhuman Arabs and Slavs are impacted for the most part? Trusting the military without question? I have talked to military brass. They are only mildly concerned. For the most part they believe the studies. But surely some persons are fully cognizant of the whole truth, and that was my original question. I cannot accept that "everyone" knows and is fully complicit in this "likely" disgraceful, deadly and immoral policy. I say "likely" because I personally do not know the truth of the matter. It's one of those things where you don't know what to believe. And that sad fact I think is what is driving this thing. Although a cursory scan of available information does seem to weigh heavily against the use of DU weapons. Is there anyone here who is really in the know on a first hand basis?
