[casi] info needed on DU

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

Dear all,
The Dutch government is on the brink of sending troops to Iraq. In fact, the final debate in 
parliament has already become a victory for those in favour. The troops will be send to an area 
known as Muthana or Al-Muthana, near the Saudi border.

In a last attempt to stop this re-enforcement of occupying forces, adversary's now try to draw the 
health card. Unfortunately only one of the political parties involved (SP)  has put the argument of 
the risks presented by the use of DU-weapons forward in the discussion leading to the decision of 
sending the troops. And even this party, in the view of many, has not really grasped the dangers of 
the pollution by DU-ammo, especially in this area.

So, my question to you is, could you please provide me with accurate info on the amount of 
DU-weapons used in the Muthana-area, the level of pollution and the effects this pollution has 
already had on the population in this area?

Also broader info on the effects of DU-pollution would be very welcome.

Info can be send to

Thanks already,

Sander Faas /
