Dr Gilbert working at Gaza hospital reports many victims are reporting at hospital cut to pieces from exotic explosive weapons that cause cancer and leukaemia in survivors. Almost all victims arriving at the overstretched hospital are suffering from this type of injury. One child who arrived at the hospital with the severed leg of another victim had his chest blown wide open from this type of weapon.
DIME weapons are "spin-offs" from the military’s “bunker buster” research. Initially, “bunker busters” were made with depleted uranium (DU), which had already been used in armor-piercing bombs, bullets, and artillery shells.
The former director of the US Army’s Depleted Uranium project, Dr. Douglas Rokke, warns us that DU is an “illegal…radioactive toxic material”, the use of which “is absolutely unacceptable, and a crime against humanity.”
During Gulf War I, US forces deployed more than 300 tons of DU in Iraq. A few years later, more was dropped during Operation Desert Fox. Iraqi doctors reported alarming rises in the incidence of cancer, leukemia, and birth defects, in clusters closely correlated with US bombsites. Scientists found strong links between DU and Gulf War Syndrome, which is slowly killing thousands of veterans.
