 (April 4, 2019) — Look into this baby lamb’s eye. He’s been around for a million years and he never asked for this. This lamb was born with six legs in a field near NATO’s Capo Frasca Firing Range on the Italian island of Sardinia.

Animal deformities are common near the base. Chemicals routinely used at NATO bases cause genetic mutations. 

Ramstein NATO Air Base Poisons Germans

The foam spray, which is allowed to leach into groundwater, contains Per and Poly Fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). These chemicals are extraordinarily effective in extinguishing super-hot petroleum fires. PFAS is linked to miscarriages and genetic deformities, along with kidney, testicular and liver cancer. 

NATO Rained Depleted Uranium on Kosovo

From March 24 to June 6, 1999, an estimated 13-15 tons of Depleted uranium (DU) ammunition was used in areas of former Yugoslavia (Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro.) The substance is chemically toxic and causes cancer and genetic mutations. 20 years later, many people in the contaminated regions suffer from cancer or have died. 

NATO denies any link between the use of uranium ammunition and harm to health, while it takes extraordinary measures to protect its own troops against DU contamination. 

Spangdahlem NATO Airbase in Germany Is Poisoning Local Communities with Deadly Carcinogens

US/NATO troops are shown extinguishing a massive blaze using carcinogenic foam during a routine training exercise at Spangdahlem Airbase in Germany.

The cancer-causing foam seeps into the groundwater and sewer systems of adjacent communities. The small municipality of Wittlich-Land, Germany, close to Spangdahlem, filed suit against the German government in February 2019 for the costs of removing and disposing sewage sludge contaminated with Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). 

The townsfolk were prohibited from suing the US or NATO.

The lethal material, which lasts forever, cannot be spread on fields because it poisons people, crops, and animals. Instead it is incinerated, which is very expensive for the small town – and dreadfully awful for the air and human health.

NATO Contaminates Camp Konotop, Poland

This activity may be associated with releasing the following toxins and carcinogens into the environment:

Acetone, Alkaline, Arsenic, Antimony, Beryllium, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate, Cadmium, Carbon Tetrachloride, Chromium, Cyanide, Cyclonite, Depleted Uranium, Dichloroethylene, Dichloromethane, Dinitrotoluene, Dioxins, Hexahydro, Iridite, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Nitrocellulose (NC), 2,4 Nitroglycerin, Nitroguanidine Octahydro-1,3,5,7, Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) Perchlorate, Perchloroethylene, Phosgene, Phosphorous, Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs), Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), Radioactive Carbon, Radioactive sulfur, Tetrachloride, Tetrachloroethane, Tetrachloroethylene, Toluene, Trans-Dichloroethylene, Trichloroethene, Trichlororethylene, Trinitrobenzene, Trinitrotoluene, Trinitro-1,3,5-triazine, Vinyl Chloride, Xlene, and Zinc.

Burn Pits in Afghanistan

A bulldozer dumps a load of trash into a burn pit just 300 yards from the runway at US/NATO Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

Heavy metals, petroleum products, tires, batteries, medical waste, computers, etv. Are tossed into these pits.

Burn pits create toxic clouds of lead, cadmium, chromium, and mercury during incineration.

Soldiers are not allowed to sue the US or NATO for damages. In January 2019, the US Supreme Court ruled that 800 veterans who claim they were sickened by the burn pits ma not hold private companies like Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) responsible. “KBR believes the Supreme Court made the correct decision and we are pleased that this legacy case has reached final resolution,” said a KBR official.

The burn pits cause asthma, breathing restrictions, cancers, cronic bronchitis, lung cancer, nose bleeds, pulmonary injuries, bronchiolitis, severe heart conditions, severe headaches, skin infection, sleep apnea, throat infections, ulcers, unexpected weight loss, vomiting, and weeping lesions on extremities.
