More damage than you think

Dear Editor:Contrary to the official position, the Depleted Uranium ordinance used in U.S. Military attacks is not benign. A fast, portable detector for the Uranium 238 nano-particles has been developed. It uses the U238 nano-particles ability to split a DNA strand and is capable of detecting U238 nano-particles at 11 parts per trillion, thus demonstrating the mutagenic danger of virus sized U238 to alter DNA.This may explain the suffering by Iraqi and Afghani children from birth defects, tumors, respiratory, gastrointestinal and skin diseases in areas where Americans attack with DU munitions.Soldiers are training with U238 munitions in Piñon Canyon, the U.S. Army live fire range near Trinidad, Colo. How many tons of U238 are “lost” in Piñon Canyon weekly? “Lost” is an army term for how U238 evaporates on impact in a 10,000 deg plume of nano-particles. Every projectile vaporized produces trillions of nano-particles, each of which is the seed for a tumor. This likely is prompting the Army’s desire to expand Piñon Canyon.Why do we allow this highly mobile, unimaginably toxic, radioactive, heavy metal, nano-particle loose on our children, on ourselves, on anyone? Please call your representative in the U.S. House and Senate (switchboard: 202-224-3121). Ask that we stop using U238 munitions.John HoffmannCarbondale
