Hi Sargent Rock,
Your right, depleted uranium WAS there and it WAS handled by many and I know this for a fact. I also haven't heard if they have done any investigation or not. I don't think they have. There were MANY alarms that sounded along with debris that fell on our people with God knows what in the scuds plus injections that were given and pills, sand, smoke etc. and Washington has the nerve to say that these countless number of Veterans with similar symptoms are not sick from this war. A rather foolish statement, don't you think? What needs to happen is for the Pentagon to actually see with their own eyes, each man, woman, child and even the family pets that are sick. I've already lost one pet and the rest are sick too w/the same symptoms plus I'm not the only one w/sick animals. The Politcians need to see what's been affected by this War because this illness isn't something we can hide. The symptoms are clearly visable and they're real. I agree, NO MORE WAR!
: Anyone who handled "depleted uranium" may have been radiated. Radiation is a distance^3 (cubed) phoenomena so as one becomes tired the ammo gets closer to the human body, thus radiating that individual. To my knowledge there were no tests run on this ammo where individuals were subjected to it directly against the body.
: War no more.
