The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

UK's Depleted Uranium shells to Ukraine backfire on Europe


Ukraine's Depleted Uranium Blast: Europe on Brink of 'Environmental Disaster'

Sputnik News spoke with Dr. Chris Busby, physical chemist and scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, about how the West’s decision to provide depleted uranium (DU) ammunition to Ukraine has potentially caused a continent-wide ecological disaster. Below is part of his answer.
"So taken all together, what we see is a massive explosion which is thought to be DU, and reports of a spike in gamma radiation near the site. Uranium oxide is black, and the black plume moves north west slowly, the weather pattern is stable and the wind blows to Poland. The Polish EU detectors all show gamma radiation increases at the expected time of arrival of the plume. The EU detector system is shut down rapidly, but not before we have obtained data from several sites. The Poles provide a detector result that identified Bismuth as the cause of the increase, but do not go so far as to formally state that it is (in case of later blowback).
One final piece of evidence. We see videos on the internet of the Ukrainians clearing up the explosion site using Robot vehicles, not ordinary firemen. Why do they need Robot vehicles? The last times we saw Robot vehicles clearing up was in the ruins of Chernobyl and Fukushima. 
If I am right, there has been an environmental disaster, and the DU particles will travel across Poland, Germany and Hungary, and will end up in the Baltics, probably later the whole of Europe including the UK (after all, the Chernobyl Uranium particles came to the UK).
They will deliver genetic damage and death like that seen in the Balkans [Yugoslavia] and Iraq [when US-NATO used DU in those wars]. Cancer, birth defects, miscarriage, infertility, lung damage, mental problems (Gulf War Syndrome) and so forth. The scientific and epidemiological evidence on this has been clear since the Gulf War. It is all there in the scientific literature—but the governments in the West and the military ignore it, deny it and cover it up. In the case of the UK coroners court finding for Stuart Dyson, the jury found that DU caused his fatal colon cancer. But when the coroner wrote to the health minister (as he had to by UK law, Rule 43) the reply was: we disagree. This stuff can be measured, but no one will measure it, or if they do, they will be attacked and their arguments dismissed."

Bruce's comment:

These British DU tank shells were meant to be used in Russian-ethnic eastern Ukraine - the Donbass region. Much of that area voted last year to join Russia. 
Russia realized that the goal was to create a radiated hot bed along the Russian border with DU. Russia beat US-UK-NATO to the punch and blew up the DU weapons storage facility in western Ukraine, close to the Polish border. 
Now the toxic cloud is heading west into Europe and eventually the UK. This was an arrogant and colossal mistake by NATO to send these DU shells to the war zone and now their own populations will have to deal with the results. 
My advice? Western nations citizens need to throw their governments out of power before further nuclear madness occurs.
We all need to hit the streets in protest repeatedly and get our fellow citizens to think about the pure insanity coming out of Washington-London-Brussels-Berlin-Paris-Kiev.
