"In the light of ongoing reports of a huge rises in the incidence of birth defects in Iraq we investigate one of the likely causes, depleted uranium.

Depleted uranium is the world’s most widely used weapon of mass destruction, and yet because it does not come with an associated mushroom cloud, this deadly killer goes largely unreported. However its effects last for centuries and it is currently used indiscriminately used by the major armies of the world with little or no research as to its effects long after the initial explosion. This is especially so in the countries in which they have been most extensively used, Iraq and Afghanistan. So what is depleted uranium and why should it be considered a weapon of mass destruction?"

It's not depleted uranium, buddy.

It's dirty bombs, and intended genocide longterm we are looking at.

I'd rather it was DU to blame. To think that when a govt approves of using such a dangerous methodology against humans, and with no care at all for their own soldiers, it's absolutely chilling, and shows quite simply that we are all just cannon fodder for the one percenters.

They want it all, and they want it now.
