[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] The British Ministry of Defence has issued cards to troops deployed to Iraq warning that they may have exposed to depleted uranium dust and offering uranium testing. See http://www.traprockpeace.org/du_mod_warning_cards.html for the text of the cards, downloadable photocopies of the cards (doc and pdf formats) as well as international commentary on the developing controversy. Why are not Iraqi citizens warned of their exposure to uranium dust and offered tests? Why are US soldiers not so warned or offered such tests? Why isn't the US cleaning up the environmental contamination? Why is the US still using DU munitions? Why is the US major media (as opposed to major media in other countries) mostly mum about depleted uranium use by the US military? This in light of a January study that found US soldiers who are still contaminated with depleted uranium 12 years after the end of Gulf War I. http://currents.ucsc.edu/03-04/01-19/uranium.html and news that a British veteran won a hotly contested disability appeal due to his contamination with DU. http://www.traprockpeace.org/schott_12feb04.html Best wishes, Charles Jenks, attorney at law President of the Core Group Traprock Peace Center 103A Keets Road Deerfield, MA 01342 413-773-1633; Fax 413-773-7507 firstname.lastname@example.org http://traprockpeace.org _______________________________________ Sent via the CASI-analysis mailing list To unsubscribe, visit http://lists.casi.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/casi-analysis All postings are archived on CASI's website at http://www.casi.org.uk
