As seen in Iraq pt. 2

A Guardian article today tells of the contamination of a town in upstate New York from a factory that made depleted uranium weapons, used extensively in both Gulf Wars and Afghanistan etc. Years after the factory closed, ex-workers, local residents and the environment are testing positive for DU - unsurprisingly, considering its half-life of 4.5 billion years. The Guardian tells us "experts say their suffering shows the use of such weapons may be a war crime."

There's no maybe.

Got here from Risdon's blog. You are a dangerous, misinformed lunatic. I have added you to my RSS feed in the hope that you will remain one.
