      WASHINGTON'S SECRET NUCLEAR WAR

      Sept. 14, 2004- Illegal weapons of mass destruction have not only
      been found in Iraq but have been used against Iraqis and have even
      killed US troops. . . Thousands of DU shells and bombs have been
      used in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and - both during the 1990-91 Gulf
      war and the ongoing conflict - in Iraq. "They"re using it now,
      they're using it in Falluja, Baghdad is chock-a-block with DU "It's
      all over the place," says Maj. Doug Rokke, Dir. of the army's DU
      project in 1994-95. . . DU has a "half-life" of 4.5 billion years,
      meaning it takes that long for just half of its atoms to decay. . .
      Only 467 US soldiers were officially wounded during the 1990-91 Gulf
      war. But according to Terry Jemison at the US Department of Veterans
      Affairs (VA), of the more than 592,560 discharged personnel who
      served there, at least 179,310 - one third - are receiving
      disability compensation and over 24,760 cases were pending in
      September 2004. This does not include personnel still active and
      receiving care from the military, or those who have died. And among
      the 168,528 veterans of the current conflict in Iraq who have left
      active duty, 16% (27,571) had sought treatment from the VA by July
      04. . . Dr. Jenan Ali, a senior Iraqi doctor at Basra hospital's
      College of Medicine, says her studies show a 100% rise in child
      leukaemia in the region in the decade after the first Gulf war, with
      a 242% increase in all types of malignancies.


      The director of the Afghan DU and Recovery Fund, Dr. Daud Miraki,
      says . . . "Many children are born with no eyes, no limbs, or
      tumours protruding from their mouths and eyes," Some newborns are
      barely recognizable as human, he says. Many do not survive. . .
