           DEPLETED URANIUM IN HAWAII???

 House Bill 1452, to test for Depleted Uranium exposure on military bases in Hawaii, is now in the Senate Ways and Means Committee. As  residents of Hawaii, we MUST know if we, or our visitors, are getting contaminated by deadly DU. This is an issue that can not wait
until the next legislative session! Call/email Sen. Rosalyn Baker, Chair of the Senate WAM Committee! Ask her to hold a hearing and pass HB 1452. Its up to you, folks, don't let THIS genie out of the bottle in Hawaii! senbaker@Capitol.hawaii.gov   
Call now, toll free from the neighbor islands, Hawai'i: 974-4000, Maui: 984-2400, Kaua'i: 274-3141, Moloka'i/Lana'i 1-800-468-4644. Wait for the dial tone, then punch extension 66070#. If you're calling from Oah'u or the mainland, (808) 586-6070. Call other members of the committee and Gov. Lingle. Call your reps./ senators in D.C. and ask them to write their own bill to sponsor a complete ban on Depleted Uranium use, anywhere! DU is horrifying and the world can't wait.

 Depleted Uranium has been found on Oahu in two separate locations, with a half life of 4.5 billion years it is impossible to clean up. Mauna Kea may also be covered with it ...and most of Hawaii is downwind . DU may be present on any "live fire" range. If you think land mines are bad, take a look at this stuff!
 
 DU was first used by the US in the 1991 Gulf War, then the Balkans, in Kosovo, and in Afghanistan, and Iraq... also by the Israelis in the 2006 war with Lebanon. The data shows an  increase of 426% for general cancer malignancies, 366% for leukemias and  over 600% for birth defects in these areas, especially in southern Iraq. Depleted Uranium is also suspected to be the cause of returning troops "Gulf War Syndrome", and the horrible birth defects in their children. Needless to say, US military and government officials totally deny any health danger from DU, just like they denied the presence of DU on Oahu.
.
 Major Doug Rokke is a leading DU expert who says each tank round is composed of 10 pounds of solid uranium-238 contaminated with plutonium, neptunium, and americium. This stuff may be on our mountain, on our people, in the soil, air, and water, but we won't know for sure unless House Bill 1452 passes now, in the Senate Ways and Means Committee. HB1452 will mandate that land around military bases in Hawaii be tested every three months for DU and other toxins and that personnel be tested, also.

 If you care about what may be blowing down on you and your children's children, please educate yourselves quickly.
Look up Depleted Uranium on the Internet, check out the video sites and photos. (not for the faint of heart and must be eighteen) See for yourself the unbelievable horrors of this stuff and the hell your tax dollars are paying for... HERE and abroad. You must keep the pressure on the legislature. tell your friends, family, neighbors, and visitors to call or email the Senate Ways and Means Committee. 
Stay on top of this bill.... as if your life depended on it.

This entire bill is lie piled upon lie and this flyer is even worse ..

Douglas Lind Rokke enjoys going around the world on other people's dime claiming to be a DU expert. Every time he tells his story, he embellishes it even more. He never tells you that he is only a retired Army Reservist, that he never was a career Army officer, but that would not convince you that he was the Director of the Army's DU program, because of course, he was not. First Lieutenant Rokke, US Army Reserve was activated for Desert Storm, but never saw combat even though he has claimed to be a 40 percent disabled combat veteran. Funny thing is that he sat the war out in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, far from the front lines and never saw a shot fired in anger. He is a phony, just like the people pushing this bill are. Learn about Rokke, come to the files section of DUStory Yahoo Group .. unlike the anti-DU groups, there are no restrictions on joining .. learn about a naturally occuring element, uranium that has always been present in Hawaiian soils and rocks.
