    Dive Iraq

    Awesome pictures. Thanks!!

    Here's a picture of a dive operation in Iraq. A dive instructor friend sent me it. one of his students is a part of the operation. Not trying to be political, but with all the divers here, and veterans, just thought it would be interesting to share.

    Iraqi cancers, birth defects blamed on U.S. depleted uranium

    I would'nt put a butt in that toxic land Iraq. It is so toxic that thousands of american soldiers gets cancer and died if not today then tomorrow.

    THE DANGERS

    Depleted uranium, known as DU, is a highly dense metal that is the byproduct of the process during which fissionable uranium used to manufacture nuclear bombs and reactor fuel is separated from natural uranium. DU remains radioactive for about 4.5 billion years.

    Uranium, a weakly radioactive element, occurs naturally in soil and water everywhere on Earth, but mainly in trace quantities. Humans ingest it daily in minute quantities.

    In 1991, the United States and its Persian Gulf War allies blasted the vehicles with armor-piercing shells made of depleted uranium -- the first time such weapons had been used in warfare -- as the Iraqis retreated from Kuwait. The devastating results gave the highway its name.

    Today, nearly 12 years after the use of the super-tough weapons was credited with bringing the war to a swift conclusion, the battlefield remains a radioactive toxic wasteland -- and depleted uranium munitions remain a mystery.

    Although the Pentagon has sent mixed signals about the effects of depleted uranium, Iraqi doctors believe that it is responsible for a significant increase in cancer and birth defects in the region. Many researchers outside Iraq, and several U.S. veterans organizations, agree; they also suspect depleted uranium of playing a role in Gulf War Syndrome, the still-unexplained malady that has plagued hundreds of thousands of Gulf War veterans.

    Depleted uranium is a problem in other former war zones as well. U.N. experts said they found radioactive hot spots in Bosnia resulting from the use of depleted uranium during NATO air strikes in 1995.

    I would say goodluck to that student diver in Iraq!!!


    Cheers!
