Fallujah 12 years on: Americans “last people to consider” generations crippled by depleted uranium.

November 7 marks exactly 12 years since the second battle of Fallujah was launched by US, Iraqi, and British troops in 2004. Fallujah residents still suffer from the consequences today, with many accusing Washington of using deadly depleted uranium weapons.

According to some reports, chemical weapons may have been used during the battle, also known as Operation Al Fajr and Operation Phantom Fury, which is considered the bloodiest of the Iraq War.

A number of scientists have linked an increased rate of health problems in the Fallujah population to the US-led attacks, including birth defects and cancer.

Which specific substances may have been used is still unknown. Only the use of white phosphorus has been officially confirmed by the US.
Although over a decade has passed, Fallujah residents are still suffering from the consequences of the battle.

“The most interesting thing is that nothing has got any better,” Professor Christopher Busby, scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risks, told RT.

“The level of congenital malformation, the level of ill health in the children as they are born is not improving, which means that whatever it was that happened long ago is still in the genetic make-up of the people who live there,” he said.
