The psychopathy of “conservatives” in the UK, and their criminally insane neocon counterparts in America, represents a serious and growing threat to humanity.
On March 20, Annabel Goldie, a “Baroness-in-Waiting in the Royal Household,” currently “serving” as the minister of state at the UK Ministry of Defense, told House of Lords member Raymond Hervey Jolliffe, aka “Lord Hylton,” that indeed the UK will send a nuclear weapon to Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s post-coup regime.

“Alongside our granting of a squadron of Challenger 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine, we will be providing ammunition including armour piercing rounds which contain depleted uranium,” said Goldie. “Such rounds are highly effective in defeating modern tanks and armoured vehicles.”
Depleted uranium (DU) is a radiological warfare agent, thus it is fair to categorize it as a nuclear weapon. The National Nuclear Security Administration notes “the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile… needs a supply of depleted uranium metal… to manufacture nuclear weapon components.”
The use of DU in munitions endangers the normal functioning of the kidney, brain, liver, heart, and numerous other systems, according to the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health. DU was used extensively during the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
“Iraq is suffering from depleted uranium (DU) pollution in many regions and the effects of this may harm public health through poisoning and increased incidence of various cancers and birth defects,” reports the National Library of Medicine.
DU is a known carcinogenic agent. About 1200 tonnes of ammunition were dropped on Iraq during the Gulf Wars of 1991 and 2003. As a result, contamination occurred in more than 350 sites in Iraq. Currently, Iraqis are facing about 140,000 cases of cancer, with 7000 to 8000 new ones registered each year. In Baghdad cancer incidences per 100,000 population have increased, just as they have also increased in Basra. The overall incidence of breast and lung cancer, Leukaemia and Lymphoma, has doubled even tripled.
Grotesque birth defects resulted from the use of DU in Iraq, including anencephaly, lower limb anomalies, spina bifida, and a variety of other abnormalities. Photos posted on the Foreign Policy Journal website reveal the severity of these deformities (warning: the photos are extremely graphic and disturbing).
General Lord George Robertson, the secretary of NATO in 2000, admitted DU was used against the people of Serbia, then Yugoslavia, in 1999. Julie Hyland writes,
NATO pursued a strategy of “carpet-bombing” towns and cities across Yugoslavia during its offensive. Some 700 planes flew almost 35,000 sorties, destroying large parts of the country’s industrial and social infrastructure. During the latter stages of the air campaign, NATO moved to 24-hour bombing, targeting industrial plants, airports, electricity and telecommunications facilities, railways, bridges and fuel depots, schools, health clinics, day care centres, government buildings, churches, museums and monasteries… A comprehensive list of those areas targeted with DU ammunition would probably mean declaring much of Serbia and Kosovo contaminated, as well as raising serious concerns over the environmental and health dangers for surrounding countries.
In January, I quoted Konstantin Gavrilov, head of the Russian delegation to the Vienna Negotiations on Military Security and Arms Control. Gavrilov said if the regime in Kyiv “were to be supplied with such munitions for the use in western heavy military hardware, we would regard it as the use of ‘dirty nuclear bombs’ against Russia, with all the consequences that entails.”
Also in January, the Biden administration refused to say if Bradley Fighting vehicles scheduled to be sent to Ukraine will be equipped with DU munitions.
The psychopathy of peerage entitled “conservatives” in the UK, and their criminally insane neocon counterparts in America, represents a growing threat to humanity. The Russians realize the use of DU in eastern Ukraine, much of it now part of the Russian Federation (as the ethnic Russians there voted for unification in referenda), is a form of radiological, chemical (heavy metals), and biological warfare.
As Gavrilov warned, using DU against the people of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk, and Donetsk will be considered a “dirty bomb” attack on Russia. He said Russia would respond accordingly, although he did not provide specific details.
However, last March, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that Russia, if faced with an existential threat, would respond with nuclear weapons.
