Criminally Insane… America’s Top Diplomat Calls Depleted Uranium Munitions to Ukraine a ‘Housewarming Gift’

Antony Blinken is criminally insane, just like many other Western politicians who are playing with fire over dead Ukrainian and Russian bodies.

By his own words, one can diagnose Antony Blinken, the U.S. Secretary of State, as criminally insane. This week, America’s top diplomat was in Kiev for a two-day visit where he announced a new $ 1 billion aid package to the Ukrainian regime, including for the first time the American supply of depleted uranium shells.

This was Blinken’s fourth trip to Kiev since Washington’s proxy war against Russia escalated in February last year. The latest U.S. military aid package to the Neo-Nazi regime is the 46th such arms installment delivered by the Biden administration – courtesy of American taxpayers. A total of $43 billion has been disbursed over a period of 18 months.

Blinken sought to charm his Nazi hosts by calling the latest inventory a “housewarming gift”. He said it was a sign of commitment from the United States to support the Ukrainian regime for as long as it takes.

Polls show that a clear majority of U.S. citizens are opposed to the continued military aiding of Ukraine. So much for democracy!

Included in the latest aid package is the supply of depleted uranium shells. It is beyond grotesque that a high-ranking American official can find words of endearment for such munitions and the dangers being stoked with Russia.

Nauseating too was Blinken’s visit to cemeteries for Ukrainian troops killed during the conflict and his deluded nonsense that the Kiev regime was “making progress” in its counteroffensive against Russian forces. The three-month counteroffensive has been an unmitigated disaster for the NATO-backed Ukrainians. In the last three months, it is estimated that 66,000 Armed Forces of Ukraine have been killed – adding to a total military death toll on the Ukrainian side of 400,000 since Russia launched its intervention in that country on February 24, 2022. Russia’s intervention was prompted by years of NATO-sponsored aggression from the Kiev regime.

Blinken’s relishing of more arms to Ukraine while touring thousands of graves speaks of the odious, callous nature of NATO governments. The elitist Western regimes are totally unaccountable to their citizens in their pursuit of a proxy war against Russia to the “last Ukrainian”. The United States and its European accomplices are in cahoots with a corrupt Nazi-infested regime (headed by a token Jewish puppet president) in order to maintain a lucrative war racket for the Western military-industrial complex that lies at the diseased heart of Western capitalist economies.

The U.S. announcement of depleted uranium (DU) artillery missiles follows the British move to supply DU shells earlier this year. The Anglo-American rogue states, as usual, are working as a criminal double act.

Moscow condemned it as another reckless escalation in a conflict that threatens to spiral out of control into an all-out world war between nuclear powers. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has stated that Moscow considers the deployment of uranium-based munitions to be a weapon of mass destruction (WMD).

The White House, Britain and Western media are claiming that DU shells are “harmless”. This is cynical and a heinous denial.

American and British forces have left a trail of global damage from their use of depleted uranium weapons during previous criminal wars in former Yugoslavia and Iraq.

Chris Busby, a former British government scientist who is a world-renowned authority on radioactive contamination, is one of many experts who have testified about the horrendous impact on public health from depleted uranium weapons.

Busby’s scientific investigations in Iraq found atrocious levels of cancer and birth defects among communities where American and British forces heavily used uranium shells. Similar pathologies and environmental contamination have been recorded in former Yugoslavia and among NATO troops that were deployed there.

American and British denials about the harm caused by radioactive contamination from DU munitions is a “crazy” lie, says Busby. The expert said it is correct to define such material as a WMD. He corroborates Russia’s definition and condemnation, whereas Western media have typically dismissed Moscow’s criticism as “Kremlin disinformation”.

Depleted uranium is the by-product of uranium enrichment for nuclear fuel and warheads. The spent uranium material used to manufacture armour-piercing shells is less radioactive than the enriched element, but it is radioactive nevertheless which has a deleterious long-term impact on humans. Uranium shells when exploded vaporize the metal which then becomes absorbed in human bodies, animals, soil and plants. Being a heavy metal element, even non-radioactive uranium is carcinogenic and highly toxic because it degrades cellular DNA and genetic reproduction. This is why populations that have been exposed to DU shells have been found to incur dramatic increases in leukemia, lymphoma, bone cancer, birth defects, infertility, infant mortality and other pathologies.

Western media – being the propaganda service they are – are dissembling about the sinister and criminal move by the United States and Britain to supply depleted uranium shells to Ukraine.

Absurdly, the United States is saying that it expects the Kiev regime “to act responsibly” in its use of DU munitions. This expectation is invested in a regime that already indiscriminately fires U.S.-supplied cluster bombs and HIMARS at civilian populations.

By arming the Ukrainian forces with depleted uranium, Washington and London are deliberately putting the wider European population at risk of deadly contamination. Ukraine will become a toxic land whose soil and vast wheat and other agricultural exports will also be a secondary source of wider contamination for other nations.

In an obscene way, the U.S.-led proxy war in Ukraine against Ukraine must go on at all costs. The Biden administration is a hostage of its own failed proxy war policy. To sue for peace – as any sane and moral party should do – would be an admission of defeat. With the U.S. presidential election coming up in November 2024, the Biden administration is hidebound to keep the war in Ukraine going and to pretend that the Kiev regime is “making progress” – despite the mounting evidence of the mass slaughter of foot soldiers.

Washington’s latest delivery of a “housewarming gift” is tantamount to an arsonist visiting a house with a psychotic grin on his face. Antony Blinken is criminally insane, just like many other Western politicians who are playing with fire over dead Ukrainian and Russian bodies.
