Feared US Dirty War scenario for Iraq
Expected 700+ guided missiles, 9000+ guided bombs plus DU anti-armour penetrators (NYT 2 Feb).
Suspected 1500+ tons of Uranium oxide contamination (5x more than 1991 and from 100x larger weapons).
Airborne Uranium oxide suspended in radio-activedust haze for months due to summer heat.
No civilian protection > severe contamination risk >2nd radiation health disaster - genocide. Target areas permanently uninhabitable > major refugee exodus.
Ongoing radioactive dust protection impractical >internal radiation risk for 200,000+ allied troops,expatriate NGOs, oil workers - fratricide.
