Radioactive plutonium in Thule is disturbing


It’s very disturbing to hear officials disclose information like this, finally, more than 30 years later.

Both the Inughuit of Thule, and the Inuit who live across in Canada have suspected as much and questioned authorities to learn if there was any danger from radiation, because we’ve known about what happened before. But nobody seemed to know what we were talking about.

Now, too many years later, the officials finally admit accidents had occurred before with aircraft carrying bombs with warheads during the Cold War. This does not give us much confidence in our so-called guardians whom we are supposed to believe.

I once watched a Warner Bros. cartoon where Daffy Duck and Porky Pig were on a mission to find new planets in space to conquer.

While busy planting earth flags on behalf of earthlings, they met a rival conqueror. A war broke out. As a result, they blew a planet to bits until there was nothing left to conquer.

The North is no longer a place of desolation where you superpowers, such as the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. and other nuclear countries, can play your cloak and dagger games. The North is our home. We live up here and have done so since anyone can remember. It’s time to clean up the mess and the endangerments you brought to our land and lives.

Who knows how many more “accidents” have taken place that we don’t know anything about.
