New Oz Film - Depleted Uranium Is Genocide "Blowin' In the Wind"
New Oz Film -
Depleted Uranium
Is Genocide
Blowin' In The Wind
By Lynn Stanfield

I have just had the distinct privilege of viewing the Australian short film documentary titled Blowin in the Wind,.

Blowing in the Wind has been nominated for Academy Award; it premiered at a Newtown (Sydney) cinema, on Thursday, where it will run for one week, then moves to other major city centres (see < ).

The cleverly produced documentary is a wake-up call to Australians, exposing the dreadful, horrible, inhuman use of the material known as Depleted Uranium, (DU), as a projectile warhead, on all manner of arsenal and weaponry, being used to annihilate nations around the world.

DU is the weapons material of choice for all of the guided missiles and Bunker-Buster, bombs being rained onto the Afghanistan and Iraqi citizens in the senseless, unlawful invasion of these Middle-East countries. Tank shells, heavy calibre machine guns, ship-to-shore rockets and heavy guns, have poured thousands of tons of the miserable compound into the cities and countryside of affected battlegrounds, producing a wasteland of radioactively contaminated earth, water and air,

DU has a half-life, which is rated in millions of years.

So, not only the poor sods who are murdered by the blast or are left dismembered and crippled for the rest of their lives, suffering the effects of the blasted DU, those who survive are also effected. The contamination lingers in their food, drinking water and the air they breath, causing grotesque deformities and diseases, especially in new-born children.

Blowin in the Wind, was produced by New South Wales, North coast film producers, David Bradbury and Peter Scott, who, together with a team of very talented technicians, have put together a most powerful expose, on the manufacture and widespread use of Depleted Uranium weapons, with special emphasis on U.S. and Australian Defence Forces use of the miserable material.

The film draws attention to the lack of awareness amongst Australian residents, regarding the amount of exposure we have in this country, to the effects of DU. Already, cases of horribly deformed new-born babies are occurring in Australia, due to the huge amounts of DU weaponry being dumped onto our countryside in some of the most absurdly stupid and careless acts anyone could possibly imagine. If you want to know more about this dumping of DU into Australia and other serious challenges to you and your family for the future, might I suggest you make it your business to get to see Blowing in the Wind.

Some of the more amazing facts which are exposed in the film, concern the huge amount of cover-up by deliberate lying and either no announcements or outright denials about Australia,s complicit involvement in furnishing the supply of DU into the World,s atmosphere, soil and water. You will be stunned when you learn the number of large American Military Bases which exist on this island and more are planned through the Memorandums of Understanding, which are held by our leaders with the United States of America. You will be staggered.

I give this film five stars. I recommend it to all Australians, especially young Australians and Australians with young families. The film is considered to be suitable for 15 plus, however, outside the ugliness in the scenes of maiming and disfigurement, there is nothing which is beyond the comprehension of early teen-agers and I would thoroughly recommend the whole family view what is after all, real life, real time, everybody should know, type drama. I bet there will be some serious family discussion after you see Blowin in the Wind.

Thats timely. Australians might want to ponder it as the Yank military will be building weapons testing ranges here on Oz soil soon.

They already use land North of Perth, West Oz, near a town called Lancilin where locals have been protesting the "possibility" DU munitions are used there.

It's interesting to note that official military texts state that the radiation dose of a M1A1 Abrams tank crew was quite high. I cant remember the EXACT figure but it was measured in equivilent chest x-rays...around 4 or something per day of "buttoned up" fighting.

This is because of the radiation given off by the rounds and also the DU armour that is integrated into the tank hull to foil armour piercing rounds.

Hi Barbera.

Yes certainly some young Australians know that we have the dubiouse honor of being the "Test Altar" opon which most of what is good and natural in the world will soon be slain.

It is interesting to note that the Iraqi resistance is currently picking up used American 30mm depleted uranium shells and fitting them into the apex of shaped charge command detonated landmines.

Rather unexpectedly sophisticated of them aparently.

This cobbled together improvised weapon is currently one of the very few weapon systems in the world to be able to flip a M1A2 Abrams tank on its back and BBQ it with its crew.
The M1A2 and its follow up series employs the latest most advanced ceramic/depleted uranium layered matrix "chobham" armour in the world the penetration of which is not problem anymore for improvised ramshackel mines thanks to left over American shit that used to rain down among the Iraqi populus on a daily basis.

Karmas a bitch!

The gods must surely be getting a good laugh at the irony!

Hey barb, its been a while since I was in the services in Oz (ARES for a few years while at uni) and at that stage the Leopard tanks were useing the German tungsten carbide APFSDS amunition system.
What were the depleted uranium rounds the Aussie defense force were using, im assuming it would be the 25mm Bushmaster gun they introduced over the last few years and/or the 30mm gun on the Eurocopter about to be introduced?
Its interesting they are going this way as there is a wide opposition to useing NBC and other type "cheating" weapons both within the forces and the general population at large over here we dont even use landmines. (command detonated claymores yes)
Any info you could provide would be appreciated.

I must confess I would be shocked if it is a matter of official policy to use DU in Oz weapons systems.

I will have to reserve judgement till i see the film.

It is simply something that could not be covered up for long with the big mouths those in the Oz military have.

There would be hell to pay with this issue in Oz. We may be fat and lazy and watch sport as opposed to playing it but I can gaurantee the shit will fly on that one.

The ACTUAL benefits of DU are small in penetrative capability as compared to tungsten carbide. But it's dirt cheap and leaves a nice modern day version of "salting the Earth" as espoused by the good Romans who brought so many good things to the barbrians.

KOPESHE...i'm pretty sure the Eurocopter uses the same small shaped charge ammo as the Apache and not DU. That 30mm is amazing btw...effective out to 8000m!

Must get one for the roo's on Granpa's farm.
