• Finally, please read four articles for evidence that the illegal war of aggression in Iraq is inflicting serious worldwide environmental damage, and what we should do in response:
 Lauren Moret's 2-27-06 CC essay, "Depleted Uranium Contaminates Europe" which reports the findings of a landmark study by British scientists Drs. Saroise Morgan and Chris Busby, published in the 2-19-06 Sunday Times Online.
They concluded that:
(a) Europe is contaminated by depleted uranium from the US military's use of Depleted Uranium Munitions ("DUM") in four wars (i.e., Gulf War, Bosnia/Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq);
(b) very fine particles of depleted uranium are being transported into Europe though atmospheric sand and dust storms, and on air currents, from war zones in the Balkans and the Middle East; and
(c) irrefutable evidence proves that the US military has been using DUM on cities
and other civilian populations inside Iraq, which is a war crime under international law.]: http://www.countercurrents.org/moret270206.htm
 Stephen Lendman's 2-27-06 CC essay, "Depleted Uranium: A Hidden Looming Worldwide Catastrophe," which provides a more detailed examination of the global health and environmental problems that the Anglo-American military coalition has caused through its use of Depleted Uranium Munitions ("DUM") in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.]:
 Demetri Sevastopulo and Edward Alden's 2-28-06 CD/FT article, "Most
Troops Want Swift US Pull-Out From Iraq." A Zogby poll found that 72% of the American troops in Iraq want the US to withdraw from
Iraq by the end of 2006. Support the Troops!
 Joe Kissel's 2-28-06 CD/Coloradoan essay, "Civil Disobedience A Just, Responsible Approach" [Congress and the White House ignore us, so collective acts of nonviolent civil disobedience on a massive scale are the best response to
Mr. Bush's unjust and illegal war in Iraq.]:
