The documentary "Poison DUst: A Close Look at the Dangers of Radioactive Depleted Uranium Weapons to Innocent Civilians and Our Own Troops" tells the story in graphic detail. It's available on DVD. US military use of radioactive weapons goes back decades. The US military now admits that it deliberately radiated its own soldiers, known as "Atomic Veterans," during the Cold War. The US has used radioactive weapons on peoples in not only Iraq, but the Marshall Islands, Vieques, Puerto Rico, Maehyang-ri, South Korea, and Yugoslavia. The US has caused unspeakable tragedy in this way. Of course, DU is still used today. My son is in the Army, stationed in Korea, and works on Army vehicles. I am relatively sure he has been exposed to DU, but when I asked him what the Army tells the soldiers, he says they are told it is not a major concern. That is a lie, IMO. If the military has no regard for the health and safety of its own, then it comes as no surprise that the death and destruction of human lives of our so-called enemies is even of less concern.
Check out the DVD.
