Did US drop tactical nuclear weapons on Iraq/Afghanistan – You bet!
by Peter Eyre on 19 Jul 2010 4 Comments

You may find this story hard to believe and at the same time challenge as to why anyone would use such weapons having no regard for other humans on this planet. We hear almost weekly about the push by President Obama to fulfill the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) by reducing weapons of mass destruction (WMD) but is there any truth behind this PR exercise or is it a case of business as usual?


I am sure you all believe that the last use of nuclear weapons was in Japan during WW2, but this is far from the truth. In actual fact the US, UK, NATO and Israel have been using WMDs on an almost daily basis since the conflict in the Balkans in the 1990s. In fact it started well before this when the Israelis went to war with Egypt… this was the first time WMDs had been used on mass with weapons purchased from the US and with US technicians acting in an advisory role.


We have discussed the use of depleted uranium weapons many times before but maybe no one has truly grasped how serious these actions have been and the greater implications on the rest of the world and our environment.


When we look at Iraq, you may find it hard to believe that just one small group of US Naval vessels dropped here the equivalent of many thousands of Nagasaki bombs… add to this the fact that the nano-particles from these weapons have since crossed international borders and contaminated millions of people unrelated to this conflict. Under the Geneva Convention that makes these weapons totally indiscriminate and therefore constitutes being a war crime of gigantic proportions (mass genocide). The consequences of all these actions will soon be revealed in the publication of an extensive War Crimes Complaint (a formal legal document) that has already been lodged in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia towards the end of last year.


This document is now being re-written to show the world what damage these thoughtless actions have to planet earth and its inhabitants. It is backed up with convincing evidence and no War Crimes Document has ever been written covering such a broad range of topics and never in the history of mother Earth have we witnessed such mass genocide of gigantic proportions. I am sure few newspapers will print the findings, which is proof in itself that the media is totally controlled. However, the story will be available via the Palestine Telegraph and other Middle Eastern Outlets in the coming weeks.


Readers will find it deeply disturbing, but for some of us, it is our duty to make this report public and hope that the world will react and stop these satanic minded people from continuing their master plan to depopulate the world in an extremely dramatic and painful way. It will make the Holocaust miniscule by comparison and prove that Israel has actually nuked its own population by using these weapons in Lebanon and Gaza. So we will leave the topic of depleted uranium and discuss the fact that the US has and will continue to use Tactical Nuclear Weapons in the battlefields of Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere as required to fulfill its economic greed.


This is not a case of actions being approved by citizens of America but a case of the New World Order (NWO) and its associated followers carrying out an action to fulfill its own agenda. The master plan and associated actions are the brainchild of the NWO with its Wall Street Bankers, City of London Bankers et al.


Regarding the use of Tactical Nuclear Weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan, one must fully understand that any actions in the use of such weapons must directly involve Presidents and Prime Ministers, as they are ultimately responsible for signing off such weapons and their intended usage.


The weapons that were used and continue to evade the eyes of the world’s public is beyond words, in particular the deceit carried out in Japan which forms part of this story. Most of these covert operations were carried out at sea onboard US Aircraft Carriers. Many vessels carry a multitude of nuclear weapons and it has become evident that the use of tactical nuclear weapons in fields of conflict could date back to the war in the Balkans.


The "W Division" of the Weapons Department of each aircraft carrier is responsible for maintaining and preparing the nuclear weapons onboard. Security for the nuclear weapons is provided by a Marine Corps security detachment assigned to each aircraft carrier. Aircraft carriers are thought routinely to carry about 100 nuclear weapons when forward deployed. As of mid-1990, seven aircraft carriers are located in the Atlantic and five in the Pacific. Pacific-based aircraft carriers are home-ported in Yokosuka, Japan.


Despite the ban on vessels carrying nuclear weapons in Japan an under the table deal was arranged to allow this to happen. One such vessel was the USS Midway and it later became clear that a very special place was allocated for the storage of B61 nuclear bombs and B57 anti submarine nukes. The entrance to such secret bunkers on board aircraft carriers are guarded by US Marines and the colour tiles on the floor outside of the door is a clear warning as to how far you are allowed to go or not go.


Yellow tiles will cause the marine to issue you with a no entry warning and if you step on the inner red square, the marine will draw his weapon. The other notable difference with nuclear weapons is that when they come up onto the flight deck to be loaded onto aircraft, they are totally hidden beneath a tarp and escorted out to the aircraft for loading… a typical aircraft for this role is the Navy S3 Viking aircraft which has an internal weapons bay. They are then taken under the aircraft and loaded up inside the bay, all under great secrecy.


Sailors who served on USS Midway during the early stages of the Afghanistan War described in great detail how these weapons would secretly appear on deck unlike all the other weapons which are normally clearly displayed on the flight deck, including the arming of the aircraft etc.


Some Nuclear Tomahawk Cruise Missiles were also carried and believed used during the war. The normal conventional Tomahawk also carried a significant amount of Depleted Uranium which also makes them a WMD. “Because of its long range, lethality, and extreme accuracy Tomahawk has become the weapons of choice for the US DOD.”


“The Fiscal Year 1984 Arms Control Impact Statements explain: Cruise missiles raise difficult verification problems, especially over the longer term. Each side would have to overcome difficult problems in order to be able to determine the particular fuel exhaustion range, payload, and launch platform of a given cruise missile.”


Here are US Navy launches which do not include air or ground launches and most likely would have been DU or nuke warheads:

-        Iraq 1991 - 317 Cruise missiles were launched against Iraq by 316 ships and 1 submarine

-        Iraq 1993 - 93 Cruise missiles

-        Bosnia 1995 - 13

-        Iraq 1996 - over 44

-        Afghan 1998 - 75-80

-        Sudan 1998 - 6-13

-        Iraq 1998 - 330

-        ALCM 90 (another type of Tomahawk)

-        Yugoslavia 1999 - over 220

-        Afghan 2001 - much more than 50

-        UK 2001 - requested purchase from the US 48 replacement Cruise missiles (they used them in Iraq, Yugoslavia)


[IF they used DU warheads in all these missiles, they would have released the equivalent number of radioactive atoms (atomicity) as would be released by 72,625 Nagasaki bombs. Some of them however had nuclear warheads.]


As a result of the use of nuclear weapons in the field of conflict we now see a massive increase in Thyroid Cancer around the world, in particular those countries closer to the conflict who immediately got a high dosage of radioactive aerosols on the downwind side of the target area.


Whilst on the topic of Depleted Uranium Contamination around the world I would like to return to the War in the Balkans for a very good reason. As we know, tremendous pressure was applied on UN, WHO and NATO forces regarding the strange sicknesses that occurred during and after the conflict, in both the civilian populations and the military staff who served in that country. Eventually the US and NATO forces had to admit to its usage but played it down by saying it was only the rounds fired by the A10 aircraft, which was a total cover up.


I have authenticated evidence that huge amounts of many other weapons were also fired some of which were Tomahawk Cruise Missiles, Maverick Missiles, JDAM bombs, Bunker Buster bombs and Abraham Tanks with associated armour piercing shells etc.


If we recall, UN eventually responded by sending in teams to carry out a post environmental impact study. The UNEP effort and report was an absolute farce and only slightly touched the truth. It did not reveal the massive area of contamination or the effect on the lives of all living in the region and adjacent countries. To this day the impact on the Balkans is what can only be described as genocide.


We now have sufficient evidence that the United States has and continues to use what its calls conventional weapons (DU or nuclear weapons). They have a dial up yield which according to the President and his senior military staff falls outside of the existing NPT arrangement. They believe that low yield creates less collateral damage but in my opinion these small weapons create a massive WMD yield on the population and the environment.


As an example, the latest all round gravity nuclear bomb is the compact B61-11 which can be carried by most of today’s military aircraft. Once dropped a parachute then deploys to slow it down in order to allow the aircraft to leave the region; it then drops vertically on target. Some sources say the yield can be anything from 10kt to 340kt but as one would expect, such things are kept hidden from the public eye.


To give an idea how dangerous these small compact nukes are, let me give you the following example of its WMD ability:


-        A single Warhead set to 1kt has the potential to emit/spread 60,000 tons of radioactive debris/nano particles into the atmosphere and immediately spread to down wind countries and the world beyond.


-        If only 1kt is used it has the potential to kill 3 million people and so if these were dropped in the Tora Bora mountains of Afghanistan (which they were) then that amount of people would eventually perish in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. It would not be confined to just those countries as it would contamination the entire Himalayas and the many rivers that flow into China and South East China etc.


-        If the yield is increased to say 100kt, the crater will emit around 1.5 million tones of radioactive debris/nano particles and the consequences are beyond imagination. If one can relate to the catastrophic fallout from any such attack on Iran for example (with a combination of both nuclear, DU and other dirty weapons) we can see what can only be described as total madness.


Finally, I think it is the public interest to understand the covert way the United States is not only using these weapons but also where they are being stored. Here is a list of the storage facilities in the US and overseas that clearly shows the B61 nuclear gravity bombs were not de-commissioned as stipulated by George Bush and remain the most versatile nuclear weapon ever built. It as many applications and can be carried by many aircraft as follows:


The B61 has been deployed on a wide variety of tactical and strategic aircraft. Strategic versions have been carried on B-52, FB-111, B-1, and B-2 bombers. Tactical versions, with lower yield options, have been deployed on a variety of US and NATO air force aircraft, including the F-100, F-104, F-4, F-105, F-15E, F-16, F-111, F-117, and Tornado [we think it was used in Yugoslavia and Afghan too]. The US Navy and Marines have used the B61-2/5s on A-4, A-6, A-7, S-3 and F/A-18 aircraft.


After the navy terminated the nuclear strike mission from US aircraft carriers in the early 1990s [NOT TRUE], the bombs were retired and disassembled [NOT TRUE]. According to the Bush administration’s recent Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), some future Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighters may be nuclear capable. They would most likely use the B61 bomb.”


“The Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator program, recommended by the latest NPR, could use the B61 (or B83) in an effort to build an earth-penetrating weapon that would be more effective than the B61-11. But a serious flaw in the concept of nuclear earth-penetrating weapons, even those with relatively low yields, is that they cannot penetrate deeply enough to contain a nuclear explosion and its deadly radioactive fallout. If used in an urban environment, such a weapon would cause thousands of casualties [THAT IS EXACTLY WHY THEY ARE USING THEM - DEPOPULATION] (Robert W. Nelson, Science and Global Security, Vol. 10: pp. 1–20, 2002).”


Tactical B61s. The current tactical versions of the B61 are the Mods 3, 4, and 10. Most of these are stored at Nellis and Kirtland; some may be deployed with the 4th Fighter Wing at Seymour Johnson AFB in North Carolina and the 27th Fighter Wing at Cannon AFB in New Mexico. Approximately 150 B61s are deployed with US Air Force units in Britain, Germany, and Turkey, and held in US custody for use by NATO allied air force wings and squadrons in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey. Greece has apparently ended its nuclear role in NATO. The B61 bomb has the unique distinction of being the only remaining nuclear weapon deployed outside US borders (excluding the missile warheads on patrolling nuclear-powered ballistic-missile subs).

On the issue of the US, G8, UN, and NATO (&Israel) applying pressure to Iran over its nuclear research programme, one must raise serious doubts as to what are the actual intentions. This could be a last ditch attempt by the above governments and authorities to control Iran in the Geo-Political sense. This is nothing to do with nuclear weapons control but about control of the main oil and gas pipeline transit routes. It’s all about the US, UK, France and Germany applying pressure to capture the world energy markets.


One example is the Iranian intended IPI pipeline to Pakistan and India (with possible extension to China). The US has for many years attempted to sabotage this pipeline with a flurry of VIPs visiting those countries to ask them not to sign up with Iran. The war in Afghanistan is a typical example how the US is trying to capture this market and cancel out the IPI pipeline by making it non-viable commercially.


US wants its own TAPI pipeline from Turkmenistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India (with possible extension to China), which would allow US to bring down Caspian oil and gas into those valuable markets. It is a cat and mouse game with evil intentions; but right now US is like a wounded bull because Pakistan has already signed up with Iran.


What makes the applied pressure on Iran so ironic is the fact that as a direct result of US actions in bypassing the NPT, their own regulations and the total disregard for war crimes and human rights, the US has launched a campaign of mass genocide. It has successfully targetted all countries in the Middle East region (including Iran) and at the same time spread genocide around Asia, China, South East Asia, Japan and the World. When will the World begin to see the truth behind this evil plan by the “New World Order” – of mass depopulation of the countries and their need to attack Iran in order to silence and control it?
