In our Depleted Uranium articles section, we not only list the numerous articles which we have written on this terrible scourge called Depleted Uranium, but we have also listed several important resources which would expand your understanding of this critical subject. One of the most treasured resources is a video from Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich in which he states the basic principles concerning D.U. contamination which we have repeatedly stated, and which is solidly based on scientific and medical facts. We encourage you to listen to this video all the way through.
Basically, the facts are simple: Our D.U. munitions explode into fine dust -- uranium dust -- upon striking a hard target. This dust spreads everywhere on the battlefield and blows wherever the strong winds of the Middle East blow it; one recent (February, 2004) scientific paper stated that winds are blowing D.U. dust over 1,000 miles from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan (NEWS1967).
Once a person -- civilian or soldier -- ingests just one tiny speck of uranium dust, that person will begin to die. Death will occur from 6 months to 10 years after being poisoned, but death is nearly 100% certain. We are killing virtually every soldier who ever served in Iraq, plus all of Iraq's 25 million people, and countless other millions in the Middle East and Central Asia who are experiencing this uranium dust rain down on them. Further, this contamination lasts for 4.5 billion years, so our Coalition munitions are permanently polluting the entire earth in this region.
This is the horrific reality of Depleted Uranium poisoning. Every day, more civilians in this region get sick and more die; every day, more American soldiers serving in that region are getting sick and some are already dying. Undoubtedly because of the progressive nature of this disease, the Pentagon was forced, in February, 2004, to do something it had never done in history -- replace an entire army with an entirely new army. Even though the Pentagon is insisting that human beings can breathe in uranium dust without suffering major health complications, her leadership knew that the original army was getting sicker and sicker; therefore, they pulled them all out and replaced them with a completely new army.
A SOLUTION TO DEPLETED URANIUM?
Suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, science seemingly rides to the rescue, announcing that the lowly tumbleweed plant can take significant quantities of D.U. out of the soil. Has science discovered the solution to this massive pollution of the earth, air, and water of this region of the world? Let us review the facts as they are presented.
NEWS BRIEF: "Tumbleweeds good for uranium clean-up", Innovations Report, 11/5/2004
"A preliminary study reveals that tumbleweeds, a.k.a. Russian thistle, and some other weeds common to dry Western lands have a knack for soaking up depleted uranium from contaminated soils at weapons testing grounds and battlefields. "There is some use to what we consider noxious weeds," said geologist Dana Ulmer-Scholle of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro. Depleted uranium (DU) is used in armor-piercing munitions. Although it produces only a low level of radiation, the metal poses a hazard in soils because it – like some other heavy metals – is toxic if ingested."
Notice that this report admits what the Pentagon is continuing to deny: that "ingestion" from soil -- including dust -- is a "hazard" because it is "toxic"! Common sense should tell anyone that human beings cannot safely ingest uranium dust through their lungs, or ingest it through the water and/or plants grown in the contaminated soil, without suffering greatly; further, since uranium is known to be an effective killer of human beings over a period of time, common sense should further tell people that an "ingestion" of uranium by whatever route into the body is likely to kill the victim over time.
Now, let us return to this featured news story.
" 'Other plants have been known to draw out DU from soils in wetter climes "but no one wanted to try doing it in arid regions', said Ulmer-Scholle." (Ibid.)
Ulmer-Scholle’s work is underwritten by the US Department of Defense, which is looking for innovative, cost-effective, and efficient ways of cleaning up soils at weapons testing areas and battlefields where DU has been used. Ulmer-Scholle will be presenting the promising results of tumbleweeds and other weeds in arid lands on 10 November at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in Denver. In her study, Ulmer-Scholle and her colleagues Bonnie Frey, Terry Thomas, and Michael Blaylock first sought out DU contaminated soils at an inactive munitions testing ground in New Mexico. Then they planted selected native and non-native plants in a test garden and in pots to see how much DU the plants absorbed from the soil." (Ibid.)
Notice how small scale the test was: "test gardens and in pots". Keep this fact in mind as we get to the latter part of this article.
"Russian thistle is a non-native plant to North America and is considered a nuisance in most parts of the western US. It springs up almost anywhere soils have been disturbed and each plant scatters its hundreds of seeds by detaching from its roots and tumbling along the ground in the wind. Using tumbleweeds and other unpopular plants for DU clean-up needn’t spread noxious weeds either, Ulmer-Scholle explained. It turns out that the plants tested do their best DU absorbing before they flower and long before they set seeds. So part of the trick to using weeds to clean up DU is to harvest the plants before they flower, she said." (Ibid.)
Therefore, the Department of Defense is just now trying to figure out ways to clean up the permanent contamination of the soil caused by our Depleted Uranium munitions. Why wouldn't they have delayed the use of these uranium munitions until they had perfected the cleanup? Furthermore, while Russian thistle and tumbleweeds may clean up D.U. out of the ground, what about the people who have already ingested the dust through their lungs or by eating contaminated plants? They are going to die, no matter how much "cleanup" is effected by the planting of these tumbleweeds.
Now, carefully examine the proposed plan in using these type of plants to "suck up" the uranium contamination. These scientists seem to be proposing that massive plantings of these types of weeds be made in the hundreds of millions of acres throughout the the entire Middle East and Central Asia. Before the plants reach maturity, the plan is to harvest this massive planting and somehow dispose of the weeds which are by now very toxic and very deadly. Remember that winds have been blowing this contaminated dust 1,000 miles from the battlefields (See the map we provide in NEWS1967 to get an idea of the broad expanse of contaminated regions).
After harvesting this massive planting of these weeds and disposing of the radioactive material, a new massive planting must be done, followed by another and then another and then another -- how many plantings would it take to "suck up" the uranium from 3,000 tons of exploded D.U. munitions?
MILITARY MEDICAL DOCTOR EXAMINES THIS ARTICLE
To gain a medical and scientific answer to whether this plan is feasible, I emailed this tumbleweed article to the medical doctor serving in a foreign army whose advise has proven to be absolutely genuine since our invasion of Iraq in March, 2003. Since this doctor has been trained in modern desert warfare by one of the premier armies in the world, his expertise is highly valued. This is the reply from this military doctor.
"The article at first glance would appear to be a fairy tale with happy
ending. Everything they stated was true - these plants absorb all kinds of heavy
ugly stuff from the environment. But two factors must be considered.
1.The rate and depth of poison: the DU has reached such critical levels that it would take a lifetime of continual harvesting of these plants and adding new ones when the old ones reached saturation of DU. Who would risk walking around for years on end to tend these plants? True, they are able to subsist on small amounts of water and fertile soil, but someone has to watch over them and provide water for about 9 of the months where the climate is so extreme.
This concept occurred to me from the outset: these plants may be effective in removing uranium deposits from small pots and garden areas, but would they prove effective in removing gigantic deposits from over 3,000 tons of exploded Depleted Uranium munitions? The answer from this military doctor succinctly places the whole matter into perspective. These plants would not be effective in removing such huge amounts of uranium from the soil over such a huge area -- Middle East and Central Asia.
Perhaps an analogy would better put this matter into perspective. I would not worry about a few drops of oil dripping on my driveway from the oil pan on my car, and could easily remove the spots with a good rag. However, if I were faced with 1,000 gallons of oil on my driveway, my rag would prove totally insufficient in cleaning up the mess!
Similarly, such huge quantities of uranium dust has been spread over so many millions of acres that the poor tumbleweed would not be able to remove it all, especially since the uranium has already been detected in the water tables in Kuwait and is even now seeping through the soil every time it does rain in arid Iraq.
Finally, notice that this doctor said it would take a "lifetime of continual harvesting" to even make a dent in this disaster. Since people are living 80-90 years, a fatal dose of uranium radiation would remain in the ground, killing entire populations. Remember this doctor's original warning: Iraq would be unlivable in less than 20 years. Under this best-case scenario, entire populations would have died before this repeated planting and harvesting of a gigantic field of millions of acres could possibly be cleansed.
Now, this military doctor addresses the issue of what the government would do with the extremely radioactive tumbleweed plant after harvesting. Uranium poisoning would have passed from the soil to the plant.
2. "OK, so now that you have managed to harvest the plants that have reached saturation and can no longer continue to suck DU out of the soil-then how do you DISPOSE of them without contaminating more land? Dig a hole and concrete cap that hole in the ground like they did on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands during the radiation-contaminated test ground in the 60's? What nation will agree to allowing this to happen? Realize that even though Bikini Atoll is capped and the radiation is sealed away from the people, the radiation is still impacting the environment because it is still there. Bikinians still cannot go home and live a normal life. It is more likely that this scenario will only move the DU contamination from one place to another. When the plant proteins break down, they will still have DU in its refuse." (Ibid.)
If the people of Bikini Atoll could not return to live because of the radiating coming from the sealed storage holes, it is very unlikely that any Muslim people could ever return to their land. The summation from this doctor drives this point home.
"In essence, I am saying that the whole idea sounds good, but there will be no fairy tale ending of the matter. That much spent DU is here to stay for a long, long time no matter how they choose to shuffle it from one place to another. The basic point of the matter is that normal life for the people in Iraq has changed forever." (Ibid.)
'Forever" is the kind of word that comes to mind when speaking of a uranium contamination which lasts for 4.5 billion years, a fact which Congressman Dennis Kucinich boldly backs up in his video. Iraq continues to be pummeled with daily explosions of massive quantities of Depleted Uranium munitions; and, the dust is blowing primarily East, Southeast over all those "Non-Integrating States".
Once again, we are brought face-to-face with the reality that American foreign policy currently being carried out in Iraq and Afghanistan is slowly killing entire populations with fine uranium dust falling 1,000 miles from the battlefields. We wrote an article on the possibly strategic and prophetic implications of this massive D.U. contamination (NEWS1967).
We noted that this uranium weapon would be making its first dramatic population-wide impact beginning in 2008, and noted that, if Antichrist is as close to appearing as we think he is, this time period might coincide with the opening of the First and Second Seals of the Book of Revelation. This poisoning might be the "Huge Sword" being wielded by the rider of the Red Horse, foretold in Revelation 6:3-4.
My thorough study of the Illuminati demonstrates that their plan is to depopulate the earth by the same 66% ratio as the Book of Revelation foretells during all of God's judgments. This Depleted Uranium weapon seems perfectly suited to carry out a large portion of this depopulation goal. New Age authors like to speak of this time of depopulation as the time when "The Christ" shall "cleanse" the earth.
So, how do we understand this article about the lowly Tumbleweed "sucking up" DU from the soil? I suspect it is a disinformation campaign designed to deflect criticism of the use of Depleted Uranium munitions. After all, if we can clean it up, what is the harm using it, right? The answer is that it cannot effectively clean up such a huge contamination and that people are dying right here and right now -- both American soldiers and innocent civilians.
Truly, the "intolerable anguish" foretold of the End of the Age is upon us. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
You can contact us by mail or email.
God bless you.
