120mm DU Munition
By Elaine Hunter
Lest anyone jump to the conclusion that this article is about my opinion, let’s start out with the military definition:
“Induced radiation: (DOD, NATO) Radiation produced as a result of exposure to radioactive materials, particularly the capture of neutrons.” (From Military Dictionary: US Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Words: Terms and concepts associated with the military. Induced-Radiation)
Induced radioactivity occurs when a previously stable material has been made radioactive by exposure to specific radiation (specific being: alpha, gamma, neutrons, x-rays).
The author recalls reading decades ago, in the context of research about the push for fusion power production, that where there is substantial neutron activity, the equipment that initially was not radioactive eventually becomes so radioactive that it must be decommissioned. To date I’ve seen very little discussion of this aspect of the use of DU. It is not insignificant.

This film is a bird’s eye view of the history of nuclear explosions from 1945-1998 by scaling down a month into one second. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work to interface with the people who have yet to learn of the extremely grave, but present problem facing the world thru nuclear technology.

There are twenty thousand nuclear weapons on the planet, a quarter of them ready for launch at a moment’s suicidal impulse, aimed at countries that stopped being enemies two decades ago. It’s six minutes to midnight. “Disarmament” has as much cachet in America’s corridors of power as “socialism.”
And the U.S. House, bless its evil heart, has just sliced the Achilles tendon of peace. It recently passed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011, which has many seriously worrisome provisions, two of which stand in stark, grinning contrast to one another.
The video provided, ultimately by the Associated Press, here, shows Jack Wheeler, an American hero, possibly suffering from exposure to a psychogenic substance.
As many of us know, John “Jack” Wheeler III, was involved in Vice President Dick Cheney’s dual nuclear chain of command incident between Minot and Barksdale AFB’s, an incident that documented the movement of five fake nuclear warheads, instead of the six live warheads that witnesses within the Air Force with knowledge of the operation claim were present on the B-52. While the “official” story was that the warheads were headed for decommissioning, Barksdale AFB is not known to be the destination of any nuclear warhead in the US arsenal. Barksdale is, instead, a load point for materiel headed for the Middle East.
Part II. The Military Road Map
By Michel Chossudovsky
The stockpiling and deployment of advanced weapons systems directed against Iran started in the immediate wake of the 2003 bombing and invasion of Iraq. From the outset, these war plans were led by the US, in liaison with NATO and Israel. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration identified Iran and Syria as the next stage of “the road map to war”. US military sources intimated that an aerial attack on Iran could involve a large scale deployment comparable to the US “shock and awe” bombing raids on Iraq in March 2003:

“The stark truth is that one single failure of nuclear deterrence could end human history.”
These words, from a recent essay by Dr. Helen Caldicott, are, you might say, my devotional text for the day. I sit with them reluctantly, of course. They trouble the soul more than anything else I can imagine. But it occurs to me that, six and a half decades into the nuclear era, our premature “peace” with these weapons — our cultural forgetting, our denial — betokens a psychic helplessness that is enormously dark and dangerous in its own right. At some level we know that our shadow is growing. We watch it happen as spectators.
