Iraq's Radiation: Not Going Away : The Muslim Observer

According to Al Jazeera, the Pentagon used more than 300 tons of depleted uranium in Iraq in 1991. In 2003, the US military used more than 1,000 tons. In 2010, depleted uranium contamination was reported to be the highest on record, yet by 2012 continuing documentation has still not resulted in any action by the US or any other responsible party towards environmental clean-up.

An April 13, 2012 article by Karlos Zurutuza published by Global Research quotes hospital spokesman Nadim al-Hadidi saying:

"At Fallujah hospital they cannot offer any statistics on children born with birth defects – there are just too many. Parents don't want to talk. Families bury their newborn babies after they die without telling anyone. It's all too shameful for them."
