Birth Defects - the real surge in Iraq

One picture that tells us everything about the barbarity of depleted uranium munitions and our shameful complicity in allowing their use.

This is what is being done to Iraq children - before they are even born - in our name:




















This picture was taken from the Seattle Post Intelligencer. The caption that accompanied it read: "This picture is from one of four albums shown by Dr. Jawad Al-Ali that are filled with photos of deformed infants - examples, he says, of the surge in birth defects in southern Iraq that he blames on depleted uranium."

stop funding it (paying the IRS) if YOU are paying federal income tax as well as buying products from certain companies, YOU are partly responsible for this b.s.

I was part of this war machine and we used Depleted Uranium in our tank munitions. We subjected them and ourselves to it. I had no idea and am ashamed of our government for the complete disregard for human life. DU will remain in their country for a LONG time.
