"Understand that the US government has now admitted that the soldiers in Iraq are fighting a guerrilla warfare. This takes a lot of activity, in excessive heat, and dehydration can occur rapidly. Men can't just stop every hour for a water break, to allow the body time to acclimate and adjust to less water intake in extreme climate conditions. The first noticeable effects will be less mental acuity, with a slowing of reflexes and general malaise. This puts our men in extreme immediate danger if in combat readiness. If the men don't die of guerrilla assault, then they will surely die when more severe effects of dehydration occur, and ESPECIALLY quickly under toxic conditions. I don't know if you saw the news report last week, but the government is saying Iraq will be a year-long tour for some of them. If those men make it past guerrilla assault, and dehydration, then they get to carry home their illness!"

BUT, ONLY IF the quantity and intensity of the fallout at your specific location was high. The further downwind, especially from fallout originating far overseas, and baring any rainouts as described above, that sparse fallout and its declining radiation will be very much less dangerous, both from the natural atmospheric dispersion and natural decay over time before it arrives.

Part of the insidious nature of this DU poisoning is that its effects take a long time to develop; therefore, when a soldier becomes ill 3-10 years later, the Pentagon is primed to deny that the origin of the sickness is this Gulf War. Several years ago, I asked a friend of mine, who is a master mechanic, if he could use his knowledge to damage my car rather than fix it. Even though I knew the answer, his full answer surprised me. He said that, not only could he use his extensive knowledge to damage my car but he could damage it in such a way that the breakdown would occur many, many months later so that I could not directly tie his shop to the damage. This is the principle the DOD is using to deny Gulf War I claims. What gains have come in having the Federal Government pay for medical bills for these veterans has come very slowly, very begrudgingly.

The U.S. military insists that DU on the battlefield is not a problem. Colonel James Naughton of the U.S. Army Material Command recently told the BBC that complaints about DU "had no medical basis." ["US To Use Depleted Uranium," BBC News, 3-18-03].

Radioiodine has been long proven to be a major constituent of both nuclear explosions and nuclear power plant mishaps and is especially of concern as it uniquely re-concentrates itself into our tiny thyroid glands giving that gland a much higher dose and the highest risk for cancer later.

Inhaling radioiodine will be a concern downwind, though radioiodine contaminating the food supply and, in the public's mind making it all suspect, could become the bigger concern.
