There Are No Words

US Radiation In Iraq
Equals 250,000
Nagasaki Bombs

By Bob Nichols

As a writer, I do not have a set of words to describe what 142 Degrees in
the shade is like. I've seen 120 D. in Phoenix and 110 D in the spa's
sauna I use. One hundred forty-two degrees leaves me speechless. Try to
imagine 142 D temperature while wearing a helmet, long sleeve shirt, long
pants, a bullet proof vest, boots, and carrying a 70 pound pack.

By contrast the Inuit of Alaska and Canada have thirty-seven words to
precisely talk about different kinds of snow.

So, since the temperature is heating up in Iraq it seemed like a good time
to float this story to different Internet sites and news publications.
There was one story in 2003 of one 19 year old British soldier whose
military job was to work in a British tank. In Iraq. In the summer. Word
is, from London, that he forgot to drink enough water and he literally
cooked in his tank.

But, this story is not about the temperature in Iraq. You can bet, though,
the weather will be really important for those Americans unfortunate
enough to still be in Iraq this summer.

This story is about American weapons built with Uranium components for the
business end of things. Just about all American bullets, 120 mm tank
shells, missiles, dumb bombs, smart bombs, 500 and 2,000 pound bombs,
cruise missiles, and anything else engineered to help our side in the war
of us against them has Uranium in it. Lots of Uranium.

In the case of a cruise missile, as much as 800 pounds of the stuff. This
article is about how much radioactive uranium our guys, representing us,
the citizens of the United States, let fly in Iraq. Turns out they used
about 4,000,000 pounds of the stuff, give or take. That is a bunch.

Now, most people have no idea how much Four Million Pounds of anything is,
much less of Uranium Dust (UD), which this stuff turns into when it is shot
or exploded. Suffice it to say it is about equal to 1,333 cars that weigh
three thousand pounds per car. That is a lot of cars; but, we can imagine
what a parking lot with one thousand three hundred and thirty three cars
is like. The point is: this was and is an industrial strength operation. It
is still going on, too.

No sir-ee, putting Four Million Pounds of Radioactive Uranium Dust (RUD)
on the ground in Iraq was a definitely "on-purpose" kind of thing. It was
not "just an accident." We, the citizens of the United States, through our
kids in the Army, did this on purpose.

When the uranium bullets, missiles, or bombs hit something or explode most
of the radioactive uranium turns instantly to very, very small dust
particles, too fine to even see. When US Troopers or Iraqis breathe even a
tiny amount into their lungs, as little as One Gram, it is the same as
getting an X-Ray every hour for the rest of their shortened life.

The uranium cannot be removed, there is no treatment, there is no cure.
The uranium will long outlast the Veterans' and the Iraqis' bodies
though; for, you see, it lasts virtually forever.

But, it gets worse. Seems an Admiral who is the former Chief of the Naval
Staff of India wanted to know how much radiation this represented. He also
wanted to express the amount in a figure that the world, especially the
non American world, could easily understand.

The Admiral decided to figure out how many Nagasaki Atom Bombs it would
take to deliver the equivalent of the total amount of radiation deployed
in Iraq in 2003 in Four Million Pounds of uranium.

The Admiral also wanted to figure out how much radiation the United States
Military Forces have deployed in the last Five American Wars, the
so-called Five Nuclear Wars.

That is a simple enough task for somebody like the Naval Chief of Staff for
a country that is a member of the Nuclear Club. Using the Nagasaki bomb
for the measuring stick is a particularly gruesome twist, though. For
those of you in the States who do not know it, the United States Military
Forces dropped two nuclear Bombs on Japan at the close of World War II.
The whole world remembers that.

One Atom Bomb was dropped by Americans on the city of Hiroshima, the other
on the city of Nagasaki three days later. About 170,000 people were
incinerated immediately. It was a really big deal.

It is a measuring stick that plays very well in the rest of the world;
but, not very well on Fox News (Fair & Balanced) (c) or the rest of the
Fox-like American media. The Department of Energy still lists the
Hiroshima and Nagasaki detonations as "tests." The admiral released the
data months ago at a scientific conference in India. This article
is the first report of the data in the United States. It will first be
released on the Internet.

The admiral in India calculated the number of radioactive atoms in the
Nagasaki bomb and compared it with the number in the 4,000,000 pounds of
uranium left in Iraq from the 2003 war. Now, believe me, it is a
lot more complex than that; but, that is essentially what the experts in
India did.

How many Nagasaki Nuclear Bombs equal the Radiation loosed in the 2003
Iraq war? Answer:
About 250,000 Nuclear Bombs.

How many Nagasaki Nuclear Bombs equal the Radiation loosed in the last
Five American Nuclear Wars? Answer: About 400,000 Nuclear Bombs. Who would
do something like this?

We would. The only people in the history of the world to engage in Nuclear
Wars are Americans, citizens of the United States. Allegedly, the Germans
and Japanese of WWII also wanted to engage in nuclear wars,
except the American Military beat them to the draw, so to speak.

Respected academic scholars could debate forever whether or not Herr
Hitler, Fuhrer of Germany, would have deployed uranium munitions in the
Sudetenland if the weapons had been available. Certainly the Germans knew
just as much about uranium wars as we did at the time. It seems doubtful
that Adolph Hitler would have ordered the use of uranium munitions there
because the Sudetenland was so close to the Fatherland, Nazi Germany.

An American General named Leslie Groves was in charge of the bomb making
operation called The Manhattan Project. In1943 The War Department knew
exactly what uranium bullets and bombs were good for.

If the nuclear weapons did not detonate in Japan, the use of uranium
bullets and bombs were the fall back position.
It was not till Ronald
Reagan was President in 1980 did the re-named Defense Department resurrect
the deadly radioactive uranium bullets, bombs, and missiles. No wonder his
popular nick-name was Ronnie Ray-Gun.

The American Military knew the symptoms of radiation poisoning in 1943
too; starting with the irritated sore throat through to an agonizing death
from being cooked from the inside out.

President Bush promised to invade twelve countries in the 2003 State of the
Union speech. I believe the man. For some reason, some misguided Americans
do not believe him, or think he was "exaggerating." The rest of
the world has every reason to believe him, though.

Not to worry, the President has plenty of raw material for radioactive
uranium munitions left. There are more than 77,000 Tons stored at the 103
nuclear waste plants and the several Nuclear Weapons Labs in the US. Each
one makes another 250 pounds of radioactive material a day for radioactive
bullets, bombs, and missiles. Not to put too fine a point on it; but, that
is enough for 40.5 more gloriously successful campaigns like the 2003
Nuclear War in Iraq.

Every year about this time the Southern winds leave a fine desert sand on
the windshields of cars parked outside in Continental Europe and Britain.
Soon this sand dust will carry a surprise. Thanks to the Americans. Thanks
to us. We did this to the world. And, we wonder why they hate and despise
us so.

These uranium weapons' indiscriminate killing effect gives a whole new
meaning to the age old term: cannon fodder. In Iraq, what goes around,
comes around. If not the uranium munitions themselves, the
uranium dust will be in the bodies of our returning armed forces, time
bombs slowly ticking away the lives of the gullible and the ignorant with
their very own internal radiation source, the cannon fodder of
the 21st Century American Nuclear Wars.

Put your ending to this article next.

A lot of people have done everything we can think of to stop these nuclear
wars. Even more specifically to stop the use of uranium as a munition and
shut down the nuclear power plants. We have tried and failed for years.
Why don't you give it a try? Can't hurt anything! Write what steps you
would take to turn this situation around. Contact me at:
