Stop the Depleted Uranium Poisoning of America

DU is being blasted, burned, fired, and spewed all over our indigenous peoples, suburbanites, and city dwellers alike. It is being dispersed -in nanoparticle form - all over our wild lands, harming innocent people as well as animals, birds, fish, and plants. We must each take a stand now and help to stop this radiation poisoning madness via the weaponized ballistic Uranium!

How You Can Help Stop the Depleted Uranium Poisoning of America


How can we, dear friends, allow the use of "Depleted" Uranium inside the US (or anywhere, for that matter) to continue? Ballistic "Depleted" Uranium is weakening, sickening, and killing our own citizens right here at home.

As we speak, DU is being blasted, burned, fired, and spewed all over our indigenous peoples, suburbanites, and city dwellers alike. It is being dispersed -in nanoparticle form - all over our wild lands, harming innocent people as well as animals, birds, fish, and plants.

So-called "Depleted" Uranium is making us sick, radioactively contaminating our air, water, and soil. DU mutates our genetic material forevermore. To get a concept of the permanency of DU use? Please consider for a moment that in 4.5 Billion years, one-half of the daughter products of "Depleted" Uranium that have decayed and are even *more* radioactive that the US government (Dept. of Defense and Dept. of Energy) has been using since the 1940s will still remain in our environment!

What can we do, you may ask? We must each take a stand now and help to stop this radiation poisoning madness via the weaponized ballistic Uranium that is not Depleted of radiation - despite what the Military Spin-Masters want us to believe!

It matters not whether you choose to help those being "dosed" by Ballistic "Depleted" Uranium in: Los Alamos, New Mexico, or in Hawaii, or near San Francisco, or in other areas, such as Arizona, Nevada, Alaska, off the California Coast, and in Aberdeen, outside Baltimore, Maryland, too.

And - this is important to know - Ballistic "Depleted" Uranium oxide does not stay neatly in one area, but, rather has been show to travel in the winds from Iraq to England - a total of 2,400 miles - within only nine (9) days.*

The important thing is that each and every one of us learn more about this - and decide to take a stand today and get busy! We must educate and inform all those who do not know. We must also take a stand to help Hawaiian Islanders now - * before October 30 * - to stop the Stryker Brigade from further contaminating Hawaiian Paradise!

If you were not previously aware of this... please know you are in good company. Less than three years ago I had no idea whatsoever that any of this was going on, either! It is Uncle Sam's most insidious, "hot" and "dirty" secret - hidden well from public awareness. The practice of using "Depleted" Uranium on many of our military facilities and national nuclear weapons "laboratories" is, in effect, the "nuking" of our very own citizens... yes, America itself.

So many people have written to ask me, "Since when did WE, the American People, become our own enemy?!" The answer seems to be sometime in the 1940s, although many argue that this all started way, way back, even before then...

Won't you please read the following information and join me in taking a stand against what is truly the radiation aerosol/gas poisoning of Americans - by use of ceramic Uranium oxide, a poison gas - by our very own government?

Volunteers are needed now to help keep DU out of Hawaii. To become involved in volunteering to help keep the Stryker Brigade out of Hawaii (they would greatly appreciate even a small amount of your time!) please write to them at: NoDUHawaii [at] yahoo.com .

If all you can do is forward this along to everyone you know and take 5 minutes of your time to write a public comment against the Stryker Brigade being permanently stationed in Hawaii,
http://www.sbct-seis.org/ please know that would mean a whole lot to a great number of people who want nothing more for themselves and their children than to simply breathe clean air and drink clean water and eat healthy food that has not been radiologically contaminated.

Really, if you think about it, isn't the right not to be radioactively poisoned by one's own government a basic human right that has been persistently violated inside the United States for the past 60-plus years?

Thank you so much in advance for your help!

Warm best wishes,

Cathy Garger
