NATO is actually destroying Libya and kills Libyan civilians with an UN-mandate.
There were more than 5.000 bombings now and all the bombs contained Depleted Uranium (DU).
The UN knows the dangers of Depleted Uranium. In February 2000, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), said that the pollution with Depleted Uranium detected at four environmental hot spots in Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro, was serious and posed a threat to human health. UNEP started projects about the needs for humanitarian assistance and an environmental clean-up in Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro.
While UNEP was called a ‘reference in the scientific community regarding the impacts of DU when used in a conflict situation’, UN allows the further destruction of Libya with uranium bombs.
Cities in Iraq where Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons were heavily used, such as Basra, Samara, Baghdad, Mosul and probably especially Fallujah, which was virtually leveled in a November 2004 Marine assault, are showing high rates of birth defects, many of which, along with unusually high rates of leukemia, medical experts say are emblematic of fetal radiation damage.
A University of Michigan peer-reviewed study of births in Fallujah (Iraq) published in December 2010 found that of 547 births in Fallujah General Hospital in May of 2010, six years after the all-out US assault on that city of 300,000, in which DU weapons were reportedly used widely, 15% of babies had birth defects–a rate more than five times higher than the global average of 2-3%.
