More information:

Traprock Peace Center hosted this national call-in press conference with
Doug Rokke, Ph.D. on 'depleted' uranium, which has been used by US, UK and
Australian troops in the Iraq War.

Dr. Rokke made a number of startling revelations. Over 221,000 veterans from
Gulf I are on permanent disability. Now, soldiers are coming back sick. DU
is suspected as a cause. He goes into details about how the soldiers who
went to the Gulf were ill-trained and ill-equipped to deal with radioactive
munitions. These munitions cause a radioactive and highly toxic dust when

US, UK and Australian troops have spread this radioactive material widely in
Iraq, to the long term detriment of Iraqi civilians and coalition soldiers
as well. This spreading of radioactive contamination in Iraq is something
that the US could not have done in the US without violating environmental
and health laws.

Participating in the press conference were:

Doug Rokke, Ph.D., former Director of the U.S. Army Depleted Uranium (DU)
Project in the aftermath of the Gulf War; Vietnam and Gulf War veteran.

Sunny Miller - Moderator, Traprock Peace Center,
Andrew Stelzer, WBOO, Portland, OR
Elizabeth Christanson, WRBO, Syracuse, NY
Jon Hunt, The Fuse, Boone, NC
Jean Koster, South Dakota Sun
Mike Zmolek, National Network to End the War Against Iraq,
