Unknown commented on "Depleted Uranium"

Uranium weapons being employed in Ukraine have significantly increased Uranium levels in the air in the UK

Data covering the period November 2017 to November 2022 was obtained from the Atomic Weapons Establishment, Aldermaston to find if there was an increase in Uranium associated with the Ukraine war. 

Results from 9 High Volume Air Samplers deployed onsite and offsite by AWE showed that there were significantly increased levels of Uranium in all 9 HVAS samplers beginning in February 2022 when the war began. The result has significant public health implications for the UK and Europe.

Uranium weapons have been increasingly employed in battle action since their first use by the US and UK forces in the Persian Gulf War in 1991. Since then, they have been used in the Balkans in the late 1990s, then Kosovo in 2000, probably in Afghanistan in 2002 and then also in the 2nd Gulf War (GW2) in March and April 2003. 

On impact, uranium penetrators burn fiercely to give an aerosol of sub micron diameter oxide particles which are largely insoluble and remain in the environment for many years [1].

There is considerable public and scientific concern that these radioactive particles may remain suspended for long periods, or may become resuspended and are therefore available for inhalation by non-combatants at some distance from the point of impact. 

Measurements of uranium in local populations in Kosovo some nine months after the use of uranium weapons tested positive for depleted uranium in urine and the United Nations (UNEP) found uranium particles in air filters in Bosnia and Kosovo some years after its use. The author visited both Kosovo in 2001 (with Nippon TV) and South Iraq in 2000 (with Al Jazeera), and measured DU residues in the environment using scintillation counting for beta and alpha radiation. 

Samples were taken in Kosovo and analysed in Wales to show the presence of DU particles precipitated from snow and present in puddles far from the impact points. Later, information on Uranium in air samplers deployed by the Atomic Weapons Establishment showed the presence of Uranium from the 2nd Gulf War in 2003 [2] in a study similar to the present one.

Three months after Gulf War 2 radiation levels in the UK spiked 600%. The UK government called it an anomaly. Busby disagreed and concluded that there was so much DU used in GW2 that a huge cloud of DU drifted over Europe.

The use of DU in the Middle east and Libya dovetails with a 1976 Pentagon meeting concerning the depopulation of these oil bearing regions. The depopulation plan was the evil brainchild of Henry Kissinger. As reported by former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, a Mr Akins.

And now the radioactive cloud from Ukraine is reported as drifting over Britain, after crossing Poland and Denmark, following the explosion of Ukraine stockpiles of depleted uranium munitions

John Helmer - in his newest article, which cites Christopher Busby - shows this map of European air currents. Note the curve leading from Ukraine, up thru Poland and Denmark, and then looping southwards again to cross England



Radiation has also drifted towards Moldova and Romania

And as noted in the above Simplicius article, the European Commission public map of radiation levels in Europe is suddenly and 'mysteriously' not functional and in perpetual 'loading' mode

Christopher Busby has long argued that the effects of radiation even from ordinary nuclear power plants is much worse than generally perceived, and may be causing hundreds of thousands of cancer deaths, not generally thought to be linked to nuclear activity.

Others, however, are sceptical, given that cancers are widespread generally - not just near nuclear power plants etc - and might also be a result of modern poisonous chemicals in food, air, water etc.

Busby would counter that decades of 'nuclear testing' as well as Chernobyl, Fukushima and depleted uranium weapons in wars, have dumped nuclear material generally around the world.

This tho runs into the increasingly-common dissident view that 'nuclear weapons do not exist', with Hiroshima and Nagasaki arguably chemical firebombings like Tokyo or Dresden, and 'mushroom clouds' in videos being standard chemical explosions

Busby is rather senior now (born 1945) and doesn't write so much, but some of his key material is available from a few years ago:

So its coming back whom onto those who launched it? Karma is a boomerang!
