U.S deadly attacks
To protect civilians," President Obama poured unknown quantities of the deadly Depleted Uranium “in densely populated areas of Libya, according to the news story No. 25, the more hidden by the U.S. media, according to annual Project Censored report 2012.
The undeclared Obama´s war, and unauthorized by the Congress, could set the crime to spill the toxic and rusty dust on the Libyan people, detached by the coverings depleted uranium of heavy artillery.
This concern was expressed by groups such as the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons, which monitors military use as antitank ammunition shells and anti-tank missiles, capable of penetrating underground thick walls.
The U.S did not place the aircrafts A-10 Thunderbolts in Libya up to March 2010, probably because these straight wing and heavily armored subsonic devices are vulnerable to the antiaircraft missiles shot by the Libyan forces.
However, once the systematic bombing improved the NATO air control, it is likely that these specialized ground attack aircrafts have been added to the attacking forces.
The A-10 has a particularly large automatic cannon that shoots a caliber also unusually large, 30 mm. These missiles often carry solid uranium.
The A - 10 were widely used in the Balkan conflict, but the new authorities in Kosovo were dismayed when they realized that in his territory 11 tons of depleted uranium were scattered and left a trail of dangerous radioactive dust.
The British Harrier jets, used by British naval forces and air-pilots and also by the U.S. Navy, are often equipped with cannon shells designed for 20 mm in depleted uranium.
The U.S. military are very attached to the missiles made of the remains of uranium already has been stripped of fissionable U-235, because this "depleted uranium" is an extremely hard material that alloyed with other materials, is also extremely hard. Due to the atomic weight of its mass, "depleted uranium" missiles can penetrate even the hardest and heaviest harmors.
The high temperature caused by the collision of the projectile explodes the uranium into flames, in a highly toxic and explosive generating extreme heat, causing an inferno inside the tank or vehicle-white, being the crew incinerated.
The problem is that the uranium oxide resulting from such explosions, besides being highly toxic, is also a microscopic alpha emitter, and if it is inhaled or ingested by humans is extremely carcinogenic and mutagenic.
Traces of uranium dust may also have affected the "rebels" supported by NATO. Images taken in the early hours of the assault led by the U.S against the forces of Colonel Muammar Gaddafy, showed triumphant Libyan civilians and rebels celebrating around burning and smoldering hulks that were once tanks and armored personnel carriers of the Libyan army destroyed by the U.S. and Franco British air artillery.
These people, who appear in bright images at the outcome of the Franco-British bombing Americans, might have inhaled the deadly unknown quantities of uranium dust from the favorite weapons of the Western military forces for antitank war.
It would be a tragic irony for the rebels in Libya, if the military aid requested to the U.S. and other NATO countries, ended up contaminating the same depleted uranium dust that changed the destiny to many people from the suffering people of Kuwait, Iraq ,Afghanistan and Kosovo.
There were cities in Iraq where Depleted Uranium weapons were widely used such as Basra, Samara, Baghdad, Mosul, and especially Fallujah, which was virtually destroyed in an assault by the Navy in November 2004 and are currently showing many cases of defects and deformities of birth, and unusually high rates of leukemia, identified by medical experts as emblematic of the effects of fetal radiation caused by depleted uranium.
A study supervised by the University of Michigan, published in December 2010 showed that out of 547 births in the Fallujah General Hospital, the 15% of babies had birth defects-a rate more than five times higher than the global average of 2 to 3%. The study was done in May 2010, six years after the U.S. assault on that front city of 300,000 inhabitants in which the Depleted Uranium weapons were used, as reported.
