Quote: 80% of the depleted uranium dropped in Iraq was manufactured in Canada. You know, I haven't heard too much about the trade of Uranium between Canada and the states. I am aware that there are Uranium mines in Canada, but our choices of customers are limited though. If we traded with anyone else, such as oh, maybe Russia or France I would bet there would be a backlash from the states in regards to those activities. So besides using it in Nuclear powerplants what else would we do with it to maintain a profit?? We do have a free market of sorts and if there is a demand for something that we have and don't use much I'm sure selling it would be the next step.Quote has been trimmed
I don't know where the 80% stat came from for the weapons being used with our uranium. I'm just curious to how much of the Uranium that we do trade in gets used for fuel?? I would like to find that out...And I don't think Canada actually can enrich uranium for weapons grade materials.
If you have any info of such I'm quite curious to find out.
