The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

USA used tactical nuclear weapons in Iraq/Afghanistan

just one small group of US Naval vessels dropped here the equivalent of many thousands of Nagasaki bombs…

Did US drop tactical nuclear weapons on Iraq/Afghanistan – You bet!,  Cplash, Peter Eyre19 July 2010 “….. the US , UK , NATO and Israel have been using WMDs on an almost daily basis since the conflict in the Balkans in the 1990s. In fact it started well before this when the Israelis went to war with Egypt … this was the first time WMDs had been used on mass with weapons purchased from the US and with US technicians acting in an advisory role…..When we look at Iraq, you may find it hard to believe that just one small group of US Naval vessels dropped here the equivalent of many thousands of Nagasaki bombs… add to this the fact that the nano-particles from these weapons have since crossed international borders and contaminated millions of people unrelated to this conflict. Under the Geneva Convention that makes these weapons totally indiscriminate and therefore constitutes being a war crime of gigantic proportions (mass genocide). The consequences of all these actions will soon be revealed in the publication of an extensive War Crimes Complaint (a formal legal document) that has already been lodged in Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia towards the end of last year….It is backed up with convincing evidence and no War Crimes Document has ever been written covering such a broad range of topics………..
Sailors who served on USS Midway during the early stages of the Afghanistan War described in great detail how these weapons would secretly appear on deck unlike all the other weapons which are normally clearly displayed on the flight deck, including the arming of the aircraft etc…………

Here are US Navy launches which do not include air or ground launches and most likely would have been DU or nuke warheads:

-        Iraq 1991 – 317 Cruise missiles were launched against Iraq by 316 ships and 1 submarine

-        Iraq 1993 – 93 Cruise missiles

-        Bosnia 1995 – 13

-        Iraq 1996 – over 44

-        Afghan 1998 – 75-80

-        Sudan 1998 – 6-13

-        Iraq 1998 – 330

-        ALCM 90 (another type of Tomahawk)

-        Yugoslavia 1999 – over 220

-        Afghan 2001 – much more than 50

-        UK 2001 – requested purchase from the US 48 replacement Cruise missiles (they used them in Iraq , Yugoslavia )

[IF they used DU warheads in all these missiles, they would have released the equivalent number of radioactive atoms (atomicity) as would be released by 72,625 Nagasaki bombs. Some of them however had nuclear warheads.]

As a result of the use of nuclear weapons in the field of conflict we now see a massive increase in Thyroid Cancer around the world, in particular those countries closer to the conflict who immediately got a high dosage of radioactive aerosols on the downwind side of the target area.Did US drop tactical nuclear weapons on Iraq/Afghanistan – You bet! – Cplash, The Citizen Journalism Site

  1. What source is this article from…? I’m pretty sure that if the U.S. used weapons “the equivalent of millions of Nagasaki bombs” we would have more than thyroid cancer problems and an official “War Crimes” complaint.

  3. You’re really off your rocker if you believe this. I mean, lost in space.
