Digest: Use of Uranium Weapons in Lebanon
The use of radioactive weapons is in any cases one of the most suppressed fact since its first use in the 1st Gulf war. Since then they where frequently used in Iraq, in Kosovo and in Aghanistan. And recently, obviously during the Israel attack on Lebanon.
Depleted Uranium (DU) is a "Waste" of Nuclear Plants. It is still higly radioactive and toxic. It is devastating to hature and health for generations and the damage is irreversible. It is destroying human cells and DNA and causes deathly cancer (the so called "Gulf War syndrom") and other irreversible diseases. Especially children and unborn life are highly affected. Also Soldiers who got in contact with DU are affected. Many Gulf war veterans are already dead. And their children die as well.
It is contradictionary to the Geneva Convention cause it causes irreversible and uncontrolable damage.
But it is the "silver bullet" for militaries, cause it goes through steel and bunkers like through butter.
below you'll a few links to articles concerning the use of DU during the Lebanon war.
