NATO war crimes with an UN-mandate: 5.000 uranium bombs

NATO is destroying Libya and kills Libyan civilians (more than 5.000 bombings now) with an UN-mandate ! And the UN knows that NATO uses depleted uranium in these bombs !
Why then the UN accepts that while it is cleaning up during day and night depleted uranium in Gaza, Libanon, Irak and ex-Yougoslavia ?

In its presse release of February 2000, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), wrote: ‘In its assessment report released last October, the BTF concluded that pollution detected at four environmental þhot spotsþ (Pancevo, Kragujevac, Novi Sad and Bor), is serious and poses a threat to human health. Projects to address priority needs for humanitarian assistance at the “hot spots” will be identified during February/March and next week’s studies are required before the actual environmental clean-up can begin.’

In 2001, UNEP published the findings from the first-ever assessment on the environmental impact of the use of depleted uranium (DU) originating from a real conflict situation. This work was conducted in Kosovo in 2000 and followed-up one year later in Serbia and Montenegro. Since then, UNEP has become a reference in the scientific community regarding the impacts of DU when used in a conflict situation.

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%.

May be UNEP has become a ‘reference in the scientific community regarding the impacts of Depleted Uranium when used in a conflict situation’. But at the same time NATO has an UN-mandate to bomb and destroy Libya with bombs of Depleted Uranium…

Algerian university teachers censured about Libya

Censured by the authorities:
June 18, 2011 – The NATO intervention in Libya is a “violation of international practice of international law and custom” (Algerian university teachers). University teachers of the Faculty of Political Science and Information stated unanimously Saturday in Algiers, that the NATO intervention in neighboring Libya is “a violation of international law and custom,” because the NATO has “diverted” the objectives of the two resolutions of the Security Council to authorize a no-fly zone over Libya, reported the official news agency APS. “No article of the resolution of the Security Council did ….

NATO 'protect’ civilians with terror weapons

Many innocent civilians in Afghanistan, Pakistan an Libya are killed by so called drones. The drone is an unmanned aircraft designed by Israel.   The Israelis are denied entry into Afghanistan, but nevertheless, Israel provide ‘security’ for the coalition in Afghanistan. Israeli drones are used by Canada, France, Australia and Germany in Afghanistan. Today, Israeli specialists are on the air base at Ein Shemer for training the flight of “Herons” repainted in the colors of Germany.

The idea of the drone is partly based on the V-1 and V-2 rocket that Germany used to bomb London. In total, the V-1 attacks caused 22,892 casualties (almost entirely civilians).   Of more than 10,000 V-1 launched, 7488 reached England, 3957 were destroyed and only 3531 reached London. More than six thousand civilians were killed and eighteen thousand were wounded. The 1150 V-2 that landed in London killed 2,742 civilians and wounded 6467. The total property damage was 23,000 houses totally destroyed and 100,000 damaged while the RAF lost 490 aircraft.

The V-2 rocket (in Germany called the A-4) was small by comparison to today’s rockets. It achieved its great thrust by burning a mixture of liquid oxygen and alcohol and was able to lob a one-ton warhead 50 miles high and hundreds of miles down range. The rocket fuselage was made of thin, collapsible metal that was inflated with the introduction of fuel into the tanks. Once launched, the V-2 was a weapon that could devastate entire city blocks.
