Depleted Uranium Australia's X Factor Embraces Emmanuel Kelly

This is my first blog in the hope that I will spread some different views to my fellow countrymen in Australia and beyond.
I dedicate it to an Iraqi woman blogger, Layla Anwar,  in exile from her home land along with approx 4Million others since Iraq’s invasion in 2003 alone,  the 1.1-1.7Million killed and the approx 3Million children orphaned of at least one parent. 
Iraq was invaded by the so called "Axis of the Willing", which includes my country Australia, on grounds claimed by our leaders at the time which are proven to have been false.
President G W Bush USA; PM John Howard Australia PM Tony Blair UK, among others; proved to be bearers of false witness and for this may they answer to their god. May these people one day also answer to an international court for “Waging an Illegal and Aggressive War” as the NAZIs once did.
X Factor is one of those shows that we prefer to watch, like sports, instead of facing the harsh reality of that in which we are complicit, like killing innocent Middle Eastern children.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t watch that crap, but the Mrs and Kids often do, so I accept complicity.
You don’t kill Mid-East Children? Well; you do pay taxes don’t you?
SO you are complicit in directly providing financial aid to the killing of children.

Some people live under a brutal dictatorship; they have no influence and therefore bear no responsibility for their nation’s actions. We live in a democracy, where we have a say, and as such bear some burden of responsibility for our nation’s actions. It is the citizen’s duty under a democracy to take action when their representative is veering off the path.
So it’s one of those shows we prefer to watch; like Nero playing his fiddle while Rome burned; hey! It’s relaxing.
So there I was offered a link to see a youtube vid posted by user 3AWRadio entitled “Emmanuel Kelly on The X Factor”
Strangely, both users 3AWRadio and the other high ranking of same vid by user BroadcastingIraqi  in their descriptions attribute the obvious  limb deficiencies of Emmanuel and his brother as being attributable to “Chemical Warfare”.

Ironically these youtubers , who seemingly know so little of the environmental factors in Iraq contributing toward birth defects,  are willing to attribute the condition of these boys to “chemical warfare” and are able to outright dismiss as a factor the literally THOUSANDS OF TONS of Radioactive Uranium which the invaders have dumped on Iraq since the 1st Gulf War 1990, approximately 4 years before Emmanuel was born.
If you watch X Factor, then you’re obviously the type to be too busy to keep up with what’s been going on in warfare for over 20 and possibly over 30 years.;  permit me to inform  you.

Natural Uranium consists of various “Isotopes” 0.71%U234 99.28%U235 0.0054%U238; at this point most of us are lost already.
The enrichment process lowers the U234 to 0.2% - 0.4%. and it’s called “Depleted Uranium”.
Used energy fuel rods are also known as depleted Uranium.
“Depleted” because it is depleted of usefulness within economic restraints and not because it’s no longer radioactive.
It’s one thing to stand next to it, but different to inhale it once it’s been vaporised as these DU rounds do when they impact as plasma.
It is estimated that up to 17 nations currently posses DU rounds from 25mm heavy machine gun shells to large callable explosive canon or tank shells.  These countries include USA, Britain, France, Israel, Egypt, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan and Australia.
“US Army field manuals indicate that those who handle DU contaminated vehicles or DU injured individuals must wear gas masks and protective radiological suits”

Now don’t tell me you trust the advise of the World Health Organisation for unbiased advice on nuclear issues.
"In the early days of nuclear power, WHO issued forthright statements on radiation risks such as its 1956 warning: Genetic heritage is the most precious property for human beings. It determines the lives of our progeny, health and harmonious development of future generations. As experts, we affirm that the health of future generations is threatened by increasing development of the atomic industry and sources of radiation … We also believe that new mutations that occur in humans are harmful to them and their offspring.
After 1959, WHO made no more statements on health and radioactivity. What happened? On 28 May 1959, at the 12th World Health Assembly, WHO drew up an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA); clause 12.40 of this agreement says: Whenever either organisation [the WHO or the IAEA] proposes to initiate a programme or activity on a subject in which the other organisation has or may have a substantial interest, the first party shall consult the other with a view to adjusting the matter by mutual agreement." In other words, the WHO grants the right of prior approval over any research it might undertake or report on to the IAEA – a group that many people, including journalists, think is a neutral watchdog, but which is, in fact, an advocate for the nuclear power industry. The IAEA's founding papers state: "The agency shall seek to accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health and prosperity through the world."


Here is a long 1&1/2 hour video on Depleted Uranium Projectiles.

Because of advances in armour plating, some genius worked out that projectiles made of Uranium, weighing 1.6X more than lead would better penetrate… and they did.
A large DU round will make a small clean hole through more than a foot or two of steel on a tank and burst into a fire ball as it burns just as the metal magnesium will. 50-90% of it will end in particles smaller than 10microns making them small enough to inhale.

We know that USA and NATO used DU projectiles in the 1st Iraq War 1991 Bosnian war 1999 and in Serbia, and in the 2nd Iraq war 2003. Not to mention it’s likely use in Libya as I type.

So now you have vaporised uranium floating on and around Iraq mainly, while children play in the sand.
Coalition of the willing return soldiers are suffering from the mysterious “Gulf War Syndrome” .. Naturally the Government won’t acknowledge radiation poisoning.

Subsequent deformities: you can attribute to “chemical” WMD used by Saddam and ignore the possibility that it’s caused by radiation, or perhaps even attribute it to a change in the parsley these people have been using to make their famous Arab Tabouli salad… But keep in Mind that such deformities are witnessed in all the regions where DU rounds have been used.
Here’s a graphic example of some quaintly named “collateral damage” .

Deformity rates and miscarriages are so high now in Iraq that young women in places like the extra hard hit Fallujah are being advised not to have babies.
In 2009 there was a reported rise in deformities from the single previous year of 15X or 1500%...That’s just over a one year period.
I have read estimates of more than 100Fold or 10,000% increase in deformities when compared to 25 years ago, before the first Iraq invasion.
World recognised Anti Nuclear activist Australian Paediatrician Dr Helen Caldicott is very informative on the issue of radiation effects.

Even though I was touched by the resilience of Emmanuel the Iraqi boy on X Factor, likely a victim of Australian mining and foreign policy, the Australian show’s producers further exploit Iraq’s suffering by using the product of foreign policy to pull at the heart strings of the viewing audience.

They explained how he got to where he is from a , not by explaining what likely caused his handicap, but explaining that a single Australian woman adopted him, saving him from more suffering in a war torn land…. Omitting mention of the Western attack which tore Iraq.
I could talk of the “humane” expressions by the judges, but all I care to say is that they were likely somewhat contrived as is typical of those shows and their hearts were betrayed by their refusal to admit let alone apologise for their culpability.
Naivety is a shallow excuse, for the 2 youtubers I mentioned earlier, the X Factor crew, and for the Australian public at large.

Welcome to the lucky country Emmanuel;  lucky you aren’t in Iraq;
and may God bless you Emmanuel Kelly and your brother and family and a special blessing for your mother who unlike the typical Australian too occupied to even consider Iraq or discuss it’s  reality, actually helped Iraq by crossing the oceans to a give a child something it needed.
The family and love stolen from you.

You know; Emmanuel and your glowing proud faced brother, as Layla Anwar explained once in her other blogg; the date palm tree which we see everywhere in the world but always reminds her of home where the palm (nakhla as they call it in Arabic. ) is prolific; are actually unique among other trees for you can cut off their dead leaves, their living leaves and even their very roots. "The palm tree dies only when you cut off its head, but if you don't cut off its head, you can replant it anywhere in the world and it will still grow..."


  1. Please repost the video of "collateral damage" that was removed by Youtube. The public needs to know what is going on. Thank you for your blog and your thoughts. The world is learning about radioactive fallout from Fukushima but the issue of DU munitions is more horrific as it is intentional destruction of human life via DNA destruction. These weapons are monstrously disgusting, not the images of the victims, which must be sent to all those who design and manufacture the weapons.

  2. I've replaced the video link.
    Apparently some people take offense to images of mutilated Iraqi victims, and arrange to have them removed rather than taking offense from and removing those who made it all happen and continue to enjoy the spoil$.

    "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy on shocking and disgusting content."

    Our own queen undoubtedly has significant holdings in RioTinto and BP (just for starters) thereby affording her financial interests in the shape of these kids heads visa vis uranium and petroleum profits. Not to mention her lucrative likely interests in machines of war.

    This is the offense that these images bear witness to.

    This a shameless offense by youtube also, who scrub images from history as they appear, thereby concealing the offense from all humanity. Youtube; in this instance have made an assault on history and humanity.

    One of my favourite internet humans in a recent youtube video pointed out that Queen Liz and the UK PM were recently both at the Para-Olympics opening ceremony while earlier having flagrantly chopped funding for disability allowance.
    ATOS, the Govt, the Queen, the Paralympics

  3. I just discovered him and figured his problems from DU, and am also going to blog it. Only "mainstream" source to mention this is Daily Mail! Thanks heavens for us bloggers getting the truth out!!
