LIBAN:Global Diabetes Epidemic Caused By Depleted Uranium
From Leuren Moret

Here are two maps of Lebanon indicating the amount of munitions used on targets, and what parts of the infrastructure were destroyed in Lebanon, by Israeli military attacks. These are from an Italian journalist, Liliana Bourgana, who sent them to me - the maps are official Lebanese govt.

You can go to the Lebanese govt. website listed on the maps for updates. The journalist will be interviewing me on Aug. 28 regarding the weapons that were used. This information is from my own observations in news coverage I saw on Italian TV and the BBC while I was in Italy July 4-July 18, and from Major Doug Rokke who was in charge of the Depleted Uranium cleanup team in the Gulf after GW I:

* cluster bombs

* depleted uranium bombs - including an order during the war by Israel from the US for 100 more GBU-28 5000 lb. depleted uranium warhead bombs [I was in Italy July 4-27 and saw depleted uranium bombs on Italian news and the BBC. Israeli military planes bombed Beirut, the airport and southern Lebanon with DU]

* depleted uranium 105mm and 120mm tank rounds [Info from Major Doug Rokke which he saw in the news]

* missiles (probably DU)

* white phosphorous weapons

* Baccilus globigii - bioweapon which makes people throw up violently but does not kill. (A military source said this was determined from color coding on the weapons) This was used in southern Lebanon and reported that it suddenly caused people to get sick.

* Reports from MDs treating the wounded describing new kinds of wounds never seen before which may be laser weapons. The US has them (classified) on the ABRAMS tanks. There were certainly Directed Energy Weapons

(DEW) used by Israel because shrunken bodies and other types of indicators were reported by Lebanese MDs, descriptions exactly like wounds etc. reported in Baghdad at the airport in 2003 and since.

- Toxic chemicals

Lebanese MDs working with the dead and wounded reported horrific new types of wounds and causes of death. In every war new weapons are tested and old weapons are dumped.

I will continue to do interviews regarding the illegal use of depleted uranium weaponry, a radioactive poison gas weapon, which has now polluted the entire global atmosphere and has been measured in the British atmosphere within 7-9 days of its use on the battlefields of Iraq, Yugoslavia, and Afghanistan:


’Depleted Uranium is WMD’ By Leuren Moret

Yes it travels... very rapidly at relatively low altitude in the troposphere, and is carried by westerlies, trade winds, convection cells, and air currents, not to mention the sand and dust storms which are characteristic of arid regions. It is traveling west across the Atlantic on the westerlies at about 10,000 feet, north into Europe, and east where it is blowing off the Himalayas and contaminating northern India.

We are now in a global diabetes epidemic since 1991 as a result of global contamination from depleted uranium. India now has 39 million diabetics and expects 50 million by 2010 (in third world countries 80% is undiagnosed). The US Centers for Disease Control reported in 1980 that there were 5.7 million diagnosed cases of diabetes. That number increased by 1 million in a decade, in 1990, to 6.7 million.

Between 1990 and 2002 the number increased to 13.5 million, with the largest increase of 2 million in a single year between 1996-97. That was the year Clinton did heavy grid and carpet bombing... now we know it was with massive amounts of depleted uranium dirty bombs. This huge increase in diabetes is consistent with Japanese public health increases in diabetes and cancer mortality as well as other radiation related illnesses, also increases in India, and the UK.

This planet is enveloped in depleted uranium radioactive poison dust, and with all the other problems, it is causing the greatest mass extinction in 65 million years since the dinosaurs went extinct. 50% of the worlds species will be extinct within 100 years. Infertility in humans is an increasing problem now, with only 15% of sperm in men globally which is normal. It used to be 80% was normal.

Britain and the US... and now Israel... have turned this planet into the Auschwitz radioactive poison gas chamber and we are all sitting in it increasing our body burden of radiation with every breath we take. There is no escape...

I received an email "Thank god Bush finally nuked Israel... all we have to do is sit and wait now." As bad as this sounds, the reality is that it is not a joke. Israel has been contaminated from French atmospheric testing in the Sahara, Dimona (their own nuke program), depleted uranium used in Iraq/Yugoslavia/Afghanistan and now... Lebanon. This will contaminate the entire Mediterranean, Europe, and beyond... wherever the winds take it, to be rained and snowed out in our back yards.

  • DU causes a hell of a lot more than diabetes. Graphic Images

    • Yes depleted uranium causes much more than diabetes... but the global diabetes epidemic which started with Hiroshima and Nagasaki has been completely covered up and denied by the military, the nuclear establishment, Congress, many Presidential Administrations, the Medical Profession, WHO, ICRP, and the international scientific community since the beginning of the "nuclear age".

      The international community knows about the global cancer epidemic... but who is exposing the global diabetes epidemic? Uranium has a well established link to diabetes... from studies on Hiroshima and Nagasaki survivors, Chernobyl survivors.... and nuclear power plant survivors. The link to depleted uranium exposure since 1991 has busted open the issue to citizens of the world...


      The Atomic and Hydrogen bombs contained a plutonium core weighing something like 30 or 40 lbs. and the size of a grapefruit. But in the US Army Pamphlet on Nuclear Weapons by Glasstone, it is revealed that thousands of pounds of depleted uranium "tamping" was packed around the plutonium core - to reflect the fast neutrons back into the plutonium core to increase the efficiency of the fission process in the plutonium. The hyrogen bombs contained even more depleted uranium than the atomic bombs.

      The global level of pollution today from depleted uranium oxide nanoparticles guarantees that this illegal weaponry is:


      The US plus Britain plus Israel have turned the Middle East and Central Asia into a self-cleaning oven. And the rest of the world are all downwinders....

  • Evil. We must concur the people that make these and sell this stuff to countries and people that do not use it in proper form. We must get rid of these missils.

  • Thank you for this information. If the Diabetes is caused by DU, is it incurable, or can a modified diet help to ease or erase the symptoms?

    Also- I would be interested in seeing the statistical increase in Diabetes as a result of the 1st Iraq war in 1991. Do you know where one might find this?

    Global Revolution Now.

    Calling on the rest of the world to stop waiting for America- our press has dumbed down the population over here- please take over your tv/radio stations, overthrow your governments, then help us bring the media whores and wr criminals in DC to Justice.

  • We need to sue the shit out of the United States. Not only that they develop WMD, they also deliver them to rogue states like Israel.

    • It is too late for this sort of thing. Don’t you people get it? The planet is COVERED with DU. The halflife of this shit is AT LEAST 4 BILLION, yes BILLION, years. We needed to find our balls years ago when it would have mattered and stopped these creatures.

  • It gets worse.

    The uranium in the weapons turns into uranium gas when used according to instructions. It is actually radioactive weaponized ceramic uranium oxide gas and aerosols.

    The complete life span of radioactive uranium gas is a breathtaking 45 Billion years.

    The senior military and political leaders in the United States, the United Kingdom and Israel knew it when they approved massive use of this Genocidal Weapon in Central Asia and the Middle East.

    These so-called "leaders" have killed us all and we do not even know it yet. This is the biggest War Crime in the history of the world. If it is the last thing we humans do, they must all be tried as War Criminals. along with the managers of the US Nuclear Programs, the Administration of the University of California - the University that poisoned the world.

    They are all psychopaths obsessed with killing all people in Central Asia and the Middle East.
