Depleted Uranium Situation Worsens (external - login to view)
Sadly the known adverse health and environmental hazards from uranium weapons contamination are in our own backyard. The EPA has listed the former Nuclear Metals- Starmet uranium weapons manufacturing site in Concord Ma. On EPA's Superfund National Priority List because it poses a significant risk to public health and the environment. Consequently the community in which our nation was born on April 18, 1775 is now the location of America's own closed dirty bomb factory that will endanger the health and safety of the descendants of our original patriots- "the Minutemen".

Warning: very graphic pictures of the effects of depleted uranium poisoning on children.
Just as with the use of Agent Orange, the leadership at the top of the countries indicated in this article will never admit the true horrors of what they unleashed on thousands of people when they decided that depleted uranium weapons were the way to go.
For these men, the populations of those countries they have attacked with these weapons (to say nothing of their own troops and their families) are perfectly expendable in their quest to force their geopolitical agenda on the world. And being the consummate sociopaths they are, immune to both shame and personal responsibility, they simply see the use of these weapons, (and the consequences), as just "acceptable collateral damage" in the larger picture of what successful outcomes of these wars will bring.
