The use of uranium-enriched munitions in the theater of war in the Middle East
and Afghanistan is one of the more sadistic sides of the US imperialism, on
par with the barbaric and terroristic nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
In this regard, our collective has in the past been among those raising the
alarms on this issue, in particular in an Open
Letter to Mr. Nader.
Of course the most eloquent and perhaps the best qualified advocate against
the use of uranium-enriched munitions is Leuren Moret, a geoscientist who quit
working at the Livermore National Laboratory, so that she could courageously
and tirelessly blow
the whistle on this most noxious of weaponry being deployed by the US imperialists
in their wars, starting in 1991 in the first Gulf War, then in the Balkans,
and now again in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The clinical evidence of the dreadful effects of DU (’depleted’
uranium) is incontrovertible. For a latest entry, please read this article,
of War, by the honorable Dave Lindorff, found on In These Times.
