Israel bezieht Uranbomben aus den U.S.A für den Libanon



Die von den USA gelieferten bunkerbrechenden Waffen, wie die GBU-28, enthalten depleted Uranium. Damit wird nun im Libanon dieselbe Verseuchung aufgetischt, wie im Irak, Afghanistan und Kosovo. Diese kleine Zusatzinformation wird natürlich von den offiziellen Medien wohlweislich verschwiegen. Man kann bei dem massiven Einsatz dieser Waffen durchaus mit Fug und Recht von Genozid sprechen.
Welsche Auswirkungen diese Waffen haben, lässt sich mittlerweile im Irak eruieren. Dort stiegen die Missbildungen bei Neugeborenen und die Krebsraten dramatisch an.

Angenehmer Nebeneffekt: So kann man seinen Atommüll BILLIG ENTSORGEN.

Dass eine internationale Ächtung dieser Waffen immer wieder an den USA scheitert, brauche ich wohl nicht hinzuzufügen. Die USA lässt selbst internationale Studien der UN zu diesem Thema nicht zu.

Die israelische Regierung setzt die eigenen Soldaten, israelische Bewohner in den angrenzenden Gebieten und natürlich die gesamte Bevölkerung im Libanon einem toxischen und radioaktiven Gift aus, das im wahrsten Sinne die Lebensgrundlagen auf Generationen zerstören kann.
Wenn das kein Terror ist.. Was bitte schön ist dann Terror?  Für diese abgrundtiefe Verachtung von Leben fehlen mir die Worte. Diabolisch, Dämonisch trifft es wohl am ehesten.

Und Deutschland schweigt, denn Deutschland hat auch noch Atommüll.

Ramsey Clark, früherer Generalstaatsanwalt der U.S.A.
schreibt dazu:
DU Waffen sind keine konventionellen Waffen. Sie sind hoch toxische und radioaktive Waffen. Alle internationalen Gesetze über Kriegsführung versuchen die Gewalt in Schlachten zu begrenzen und den Gebrauch von besonders grausamen und ungezielten Waffen konsequent vorzubeugen,… Durch ihre anhaltende Grausamkeit und die unvorhersehbaren tot bringenden Auswirkungen verletzen DU Waffen internationale Gesetze. Sie bedrohen die jetzige Zivilbevölkerung und die der kommenden Generationen.“

According to the following two items, forwarded by physicist Calman Altman, Israel has introduced ? or possibly continues to use ? Depleted Uranium (DU) ammunition in it?s current invasion and bombing of Lebanon. So far Israeli has not admitted to using DU shells. In 1998, in response to information that I provided, Knesset Members Naomi Chazan (Meretz) and Tamar Godjansky (Chadash) each submitted queries to the Minister of Defense concerning the use of DU shells by the Israel Defense Force. Then Defense Minister Itzhak Mordechai answered with evasive denials. In 2001, however, following a leak from navy officers, the Israeli navy announced that it had already discontinued the use of DU ammunition.

?As both physicist Calman Altman and Dr. Doug Rokke state below, DU ammunition is in effect a ?dirty bomb? apparently capable of contaminating, poisoning and effecting the people, plants, animals and environment exposed to it for years to come. The total lack of public or media awareness regarding this topic in Israel is consistent with a widespread militarized mindset perceiving weapons as exclusively ?there for our protection?.

?It appears that depleted uranium munition will be used by the IDF not not only in ground penetrating 'bunker-buster' bombs, as reported by Rokke, whose article recently appeared on alef, but is already being used in tank artillery. Below is a photo taken from Indymedia, UK, of a shell with a DU penetrator about to be loaded. Much additional information can be found by doing a Google search with the keywords 'depleted uranium Lebanon'. Another item in the future War Crimes indictment!

Israelis are using Depleted Uranium in Lebanon

Below are links to photos showing Israeli forces loading their tanks with depleted uranium weapons.

The pictures below by David Silverman were taken on the 14th July near the Lebanese border. In them Israeli soldiers can be seen loading DU shells into tanks. The first image appeared in some early editions of the UK Guardian newspaper on the 15th of July and was subsequently replaced in later editions.

Let me add to Rokke's statement below, that if the IDF proposes to crack underground Hisbollah bunkers with depleted uranium 'bunker busters', (which apparently it does), and then to send in our gallant soldiers to clean up, - we can expect an Israeli version of the "Gulf War Syndrome" in the months and years to come, with a large proportion of the participants succumbing to the various cancers, deformed offspring, heavy metal poisoning - which was the unfortunate lot of the first and second Gulf War servicemen. Will? this be considered acceptable collateral damage?

Depleted Uranium Situation Worsens Requiring Immediate Action By President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, and Prime Minister Olmert

Dr. Doug Rokke, PhD., former Director, U.S. Army Depleted Uranium project

?July 24, 2006

The delivery of at least 100 GBU 28 bunker busters bombs containing depleted uranium warheads by the United States to Israel for use against targets in Lebanon will result in additional radioactive and chemical toxic contamination with consequent adverse health and environmental effects throughout the middle east.

Today, U.S., British, and now Israeli military personnel are using illegal uranium munitions- America's and England's own "dirty bombs" while U.S. Army, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Defense, and British Ministry of Defence officials deny that there are any adverse health and environmental effects as a consequence of the manufacture, testing, and/or use of uranium munitions to avoid liability for the willful and illegal dispersal of a radioactive toxic material - depleted uranium.

The use of uranium weapons is absolutely unacceptable, and a crime against humanity. Consequently the citizens of the world and all governments must force cessation of uranium weapons use. I must demand that Israel now provide medical care to all DU casualties in Lebanon and clean up all DU contamination.

U.S. and British officials have arrogantly refused to comply with their own regulations, orders, and directives that require United States Department of Defense officials to provide prompt and effective medical care to "all" exposed individuals. Reference: Medical Management of Unusual Depleted Uranium Casualties, DOD, Pentagon, 10/14/93, Medical Management of Army personnel Exposed to Depleted Uranium (DU) Headquarters, U.S. Army Medical Command 29 April 2004, and section 2-5 of U.S. Army Regulation 700-48. Israeli officials must not do so now.

They also refuse to clean up dispersed radioactive Contamination as required by Army Regulation- AR 700-48: "Management of Equipment Contaminated With Depleted Uranium or Radioactive Commodities" (Headquarters, Department Of The Army, Washington, D.C., September 2002) and U.S. Army Technical Bulletin- TB 9-1300-278: "Guidelines For Safe Response To Handling, Storage, And Transportation Accidents Involving Army Tank Munitions Or Armor Which Contain Depleted Uranium" (Headquarters, Department Of The Army, Washington, D.C., JULY 1996). Specifically section 2-4 of United States Army Regulation-AR 700-48 dated September 16, 2002 requires that:
(1) "Military personnel "identify, segregate, isolate, secure, and label all RCE" (radiologically contaminated equipment).
(2) "Procedures to minimize the spread of radioactivity will be implemented as soon as possible."
(3) "Radioactive material and waste will not be locally disposed of through burial, submersion, incineration, destruction in place, or abandonment" and
(4) "All equipment, to include captured or combat RCE, will be surveyed, packaged, retrograded, decontaminated and released IAW Technical Bulletin 9-1300-278, DA PAM 700-48" (Note: Maximum exposure limits are specified in Appendix F).

The previous and current use of uranium weapons, the release of radioactive components in destroyed U.S. and foreign military equipment, and releases of industrial, medical, research facility radioactive materials have resulted in unacceptable exposures. Therefore, decontamination must be completed as required by U.S. Army Regulation 700-48 and should include releases of all radioactive materials resulting from military operations.

The extent of adverse health and environmental effects of uranium weapons contamination is not limited to combat zones but includes facilities and sites where uranium weapons were manufactured or tested including Vieques; Puerto Rico; Colonie, New York; Concord, MA; Jefferson Proving Grounds, Indiana; and Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. Therefore medical care must be provided by the United States Department of Defense officials to all individuals affected by the manufacturing, testing, and/or use of uranium munitions. Thorough environmental remediation also must be completed without further delay.

I am amazed that fifteen years after was I asked to clean up the initial DU mess from Gulf War 1 and over ten years since I finished the depleted uranium project that United States Department of Defense officials and others still attempt to justify uranium munitions use while ignoring mandatory requirements. I am dismayed that Department of Defense and Department of Energy officials and representatives continue personal attacks aimed to silence or discredit those of us who are demanding that medical care be provided to all DU casualties and that environmental remediation is completed in compliance with U.S. Army Regulation 700-48. But beyond the ignored mandatory actions the willful dispersal of tons of solid radioactive and chemically toxic waste in the form of uranium munitions is illegal (
and just does not even pass the common sense test and according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, DHS, is a dirty bomb. DHS issued "dirty bomb" response guidelines,
, on January 3, 2006 for incidents within the United States but ignore DOD use of uranium weapons and existing DOD regulations. These guidelines specifically state that: "Characteristics of RDD and IND Incidents: A radiological incident is defined as an event or series of events, deliberate or accidental, leading to the release, or potential release, into the environment of radioactive material in sufficient quantity to warrant consideration of protective actions. Use of an RDD or IND is an act of terror that produces a radiological incident." Thus the use of uranium munitions is "an act or terror" as defined by DHS. Finally continued compliance with the infamous March 1991 Los Alamos Memorandum that was issued to ensure continued use of uranium munitions can not be justified.

In conclusion: the President of the United States- George W. Bush, the Prime Minister of Great Britain-Tony Blair, and the Prime Minister of Israel Olmert must acknowledge and accept responsibility for willful use of illegal uranium munitions- their own "dirty bombs"- resulting in adverse health and environmental effects.

President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, and Prime Minister Olmert should order:
1. medical care for all casualties,
2. thorough environmental remediation,
3. immediate cessation of retaliation against all of us who demand compliance with medical care and environmental remediation requirements,
4. and stop the already illegal the use (UN finding) of depleted uranium munitions.
