"Professor Doug Rokke, ex-director of the Pentagon's depleted uranium project -- a former professor of environmental science at Jacksonville University and onetime US army colonel who was tasked by the US department of defence with the post-first Gulf war depleted uranium desert clean-up -- said use of DU was a 'war crime'.
Rokke said: 'There is a moral point to be made here. This war was about Iraq possessing illegal weapons of mass destruction -- yet we are using weapons of mass destruction ourselves.' He added: 'Such double-standards are repellent.'"
There are multitudes of sources from around the world that say the same thing. As it forces it's way thru armor, DU ignites. It does this at temperatures of 600 degrees. That is why it is effective but also why it releases vapor that is radioactive. That is indisputable. What is open to dispute is the effects that this vapor produces.
If you are open to the truth, it is easy to find, if you are not you will never find it.
When a depleted uranium round hits it's target, it mostly vaporizes. It literally burns it's way through armor. It is very effective at penetrating barriers, but it accomplishes this task by burning though, releasing vapor that is radioactive as it does this.
I believe some research on your part will show you this is true. I believe that was the point of "Other One's " post also.
I think what "Other One" meant was that up to 70% of the depleted uranium within these weapons aerosolizes on impact and as radioactive dust it is easily ingested.
In other words, the majority of it does become a vapor.
I thought you had more Latin than 4 years Last Rebel. You have previously said:
"I already knew that homosexuality, and pre-marital sex were wrong and for the right reasons, this whole discussion however has helped me to have a broader base of knowledge on the subject, for that I thank all who did give this serious and careful thought and contributed in a Biblical based way. After all, that is the only way that matters, isn't it? I'm not much for word games, and most who try it find out they have msessed up, I studied Latin for 7 years and Greek for 5."
