Kosovos Y2K problem
At about this time next year, the NATO
humanitarian action will have produced the first defective
births in Kosovo.
As of now, there is more radioactive residue from the depleted
uranium ammunition and ordinance used by NATO planes than was left over from the nuclear
bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
This highly toxic metal is spread over fields throughout Yugoslavia and will enter
the food supply--first the crops and vegetables and then the livestock--and remain in the
food chain for decades to come. It is highly unlikely that NATO will supply safe
"Ready to Eat" meals to expectant mothers in Kosovo for that long. After
the Petrohemija chemical factory was bombed, huge quantities of toxic chlorine and
ethylene dichloride were released into the air. Afraid of an even
worse ecological disaster, Petrohemija staff issued a press release asking NATO to stop
bombing them until they could dispose of the most toxic and carcinogenic chemicals safely.
NATO not only ignored this plea, but two days later deliberately
bombed the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plants in Pancevo.
VCM is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is extremely carcinogenic. Increased
atmospheric concentrations, 10,000 times above the permitted limits, were measured after
the bombing. In addition, huge quantities of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, and
the acid gas, hydrogen chloride, were released into the atmosphere.
The latest entry on NATOs humanitarian target list is the
Vinca Nuclear Research Institute. Its reactors have not been used for 15 years, but
a significant amount of Uranium-235 enriched and unused fuel is still in its interior.
Highly radioactive material for everyday activities is also located in several research
If these sites are hit--and given NATOs humanitarian track
record there is no reason to believe otherwise--a tragedy on a scale of Chernobyl can be
expected in all of the Central Europe.
At about this time next year, with your accounts long safe from the
computer millenium bug, you will be sipping your morning coffee and rallying behind some
other NATO humanitarian bombing action that is being broadcast live on CNN. And long forgotten, the people of Kosovo will be facing their own
