Italy has just admitted that the deaths of 98 of its service personnel were due to exposure to depleted uranium (DU). (Former MSP Bill Wilson and myself campaigned to get the UK Ministry of Defence to take this issue seriously. Later we were not sad to see the equivocating Liam Fox forced to resign in disgrace, although this was due to his friendship with Adam Werritty, a friend of Mossad. Bill and myself also campaigned for the human rights of Palestinians, incidentally, so ideologically it’s clear we had little in common with Fox and his Zionist cronies.)
It recently emerged that the UK armed forces minister, Nick Harvey, misled MSPs about a review which he claimed showed that DU weapons were permissible on humanitarian and environmental grounds under the Geneva conventions. The review did not exist!
In time I believe:
- that the full horror of DU will emerge, such that no one will be able to deny its devastating effects,
- that those who authorised its use will be shown to have had access to information demonstrating how dangerous it is, and
- that they will be shown to have deliberately suppressed such information (and blocked further research).
