Hey, Justin!

Wanna be leader of the country one day? Better start thinking about how you’ll challenge NATO on anything

A video posted by We Are Change Victoria this afternoon. They asked Justin Trudeau how he plans to directly address NATO’s use of depleted uranium. He fumbled it. Any leader worthy of my trust would have taken a second to think about how exactly he’s going to challenge the treaty (NATO, a.k.a. needless greedy fucked up war-machine) at all! Politicians have a marvelous way of saying a lot of words without saying a lot of meaning. See this post. Seems like Justin is just a pretty face after all. Sigh. Where’s my hero?!

Oh yeah, here’s an article by the Center for Research on Globalization that explains what is so fucked up about depleted uranium.

Imagine: Terrorists acquire a million pounds of the deadly dust and scatter it in populated areas throughout the U.S. Hundreds of children report symptoms. Many acquire cancer and leukemia, suffering an early and painful death. Huge increases in severe birth defects are reported. Oncologists are overwhelmed. Soccer fields, sand lots and parks, traditional play areas for kids, are no longer safe. People lose their most basic freedom, the ability to go outside and safely breathe. Sounds worse than 9/11? Welcome to Iraq and Afghanistan.
