Depleted Uranium by RedOut Depleted Uranium by RedOut
America uses depleted urainum tiped shells and missiles. First used by US forces illegaly in the first gulf war. The US used about 300 tons of depleted uranium in the invasion of Iraq, leaving much of the country hazardous to both the troops and the Iraqis.

Depleted uranium (Uranium-238) has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, meaning it takes that long to lose half of it's strength, so the 300 tons of uranium spread through Iraq isnt going to fizzle out anytime soon.

Another example of just how much the US cares about the people in Iraq.

silly theres a reason that depleted uranium is called "depleted" uranium.

depleted uranium only becomes "depleted" when all the radioactivity is sucked out of it leaving it well... depleted.

the uranium is used becasue it is one of the densist metals in the world and thus, really good at blowing the hell out of tanks.

Yeah you sure got that right. DU munitions are certainly doing sever and permanent damage to civilians and non civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia. It's a shame so few people around know or care about it. I thought agent orange was bad, then I found out about DU. I wonder what the US military is going to suprise us all with next.
