DU Scandal Explodes — Horrendous U.S. Casualties
The Preventive Psychiatry Newsletter has written to its subscribers telling them that the real reason the former Veterans Affairs Secretary, Anthony Principi, recently resigned was because he has been involved in a massive scandal covering up the fact that Gulf War Syndrome was caused by the use of depleted uranium, according to the SF Bay View.
In the article Arthur Bernklau, executive director of Veterans for Constitutional Law, reportedly wrote that "thousands of our military have suffered and died from, [and depleted uranium] has finally been identified as the cause of this sickness, eliminating the guessing. The terrible truth is now being revealed." Bernklau went on to detail several alarming statistics. The historical disability rate amongst soldiers last century was about 5 percent, although it approached 10 percent during Vietnam. But due to the use of depleted uranium in the battlefield, 56 percent of the 580,400 solders that served in the first Gulf War were on Permanent Medical Disability by 2000. 11,000 Gulf War veterans are already dead. Now 518,739 Gulf War Veterans, almost all of them, are currently on medical disability.
Principi, under the order of the Bush Administration, had been allegedly covering up the disastrous results of using depleted uranium since 2000. However, with so many soldiers having serious health problems it has become impossible to keep secret.

I urge everyone with a printer to run multiple copies of this article and give it to any friends or family members who are considering joining the military, most likely because of the jobless situation here in the US or large student loans.
If you have the spirit of an activist, take copies with you to the nearest Recruiting Office and place them in the hands of all individuals who are thinking about "joining up."
If you manage to duck the bullets, you are still likely to die or be permanently disabled just for having spent time in Iraq and/or Afganistan. Exposure to DU can be brought back, thereby exposing your wife/husband, family, etc. DU also causes birth defects.
