Radiation Sickness

One sad chapter of the ongoing looting is the sacking of several nuclear labs around Iraq.  In some neighborhoods around such labs, alarming levels of radiation is being detected and doctors are reporting a rash of radiation disease.

Some unknowing residents have used barrels – dumped of their radioactive materials – to store food and water for drinking and cooking.  There is also about 20% of nuclear materials unaccounted for from some such labs raising the danger that the materials could be used in the construction of “dirty bombs” – so the US takeover while doing nothing to stop non-existent weapons of mass destruction has actually liberated materials that can be used by who knows who to create such deadly weapons!
