Suspect video......


Now I'm sure the depleted uranium dust and what-not isn't exactly the healthiest thing in the world, but is it THIS unhealthy?

Wait a second, aren't some of those children on that video a product of the Chernobyl incident?

Greatly exagerated(sp?).

It's roughly as dangerous as lead: don't eat it, don't breath it.

I hear that is very bad for you...

<­BR>

When inhaled directly out of the muzzle of a GAU-8 or 120mm main gun.

What most people dont know is that there are alot of things around us which are naturally radioactive. The depleted uranium which cannot be used for fissiable fuel in reactors has never been introduced to a neutron flux or activated. I has slightly higher background radiation than coal. The reason they use it for bullets is that its very heavy and dense. I really doubt that the claims of this film are true, unless they eat the spent rounds for breakfast every morning.

That has got to be one of the biggest bullshit videos that I've seen in a long time... it even tops
the Reynolds-wrap inducing 9/11 video of the 'disappearing Pentagon airliner' video in failing the
sniff test....

Maybe to the sheeple that never heard of "GOOGLE" or 'do your own research', but if you do any
research on your own, it shows that this is yet another scare tactic, for whatever reason.

I started a rather lengthy slam of this bullshit, but it's not worth my time, responding to such
horseshit....

Also, it said the first was nuclear war was in Iraq. The person who made the video obviously forgot about WWII and Hiroshima and Japan. the video should have said "the second nuclear war."
