If memory serves me correctly American Arms makers use depleted Uranium to tip bombs that we routinely drop on foreign countries.

"Lost in the media circus about the Iraq war, supposedly being fought to prevent a tyrant from obtaining weapons of mass destruction, is the salient fact that the United States and Britain are actively waging chemical and nuclear warfare in Iraq - using depleted uranium munitions."

What's good for the goose is good for the gander? Why get upset about a little depleted Uranium in Opalocka, Florida when we make bullets and bombs tipped with depleted Uranium?

nuclear warfare in Iraq - using depleted uranium munitions.

Depleted uranium s only slightly radioactive (that's why they call it "depleted") It's used in munitions and tank armor because it is one of the densest materials on Earth. The denser the metal, the more armor protection it provides.

A projectile made out of a denser metal can have a smaller diameter while packing the same wallop as a larger projectile made out of softer metal.
