WTF is that? What kind of bullshit reporting is that? How can someone inform if they are THAT FUCKING STUPID?

These weapons which are commonly known as Depleted Uranium Bombs, work like a Hydrogen bomb. There is no difference except that the radiation of these bombs is lesser in degree and quantity. However, the devastating effects of this radiation on the people are as serious as the H-Bomb.
There is a huge diference on how they work!!! There is no nuclear explosion!!!

Um... actually, there ain't no such thing as a Depleted Uranium Bomb.

The US has no FAE's. And it would use a nuclear bomb in response to any WMD attack. Deterrence requires it and it is stated US policy.

In the opening battle, the tank unit fired two 120 mm high velocity depleted uranium rounds straight down the main road, creating a powerful vacuum that literally sucked guerrillas out from their hideaways into the street, where they were shot down by small arms fire or run over by the tanks,”
You know, the evil Americans soldiers must be really evil and working for the Great Satan if they shoot and run over enemies already lying in bloody pulp on the streets...

Sheeesh, why not report that Coalition's soldiers are eating babies and raping the cadavers while you're at it?

You can hate the U.S. if you want, but please stop being soo stupid!

I don't even understand what the reporter is trying to say, here. "There is no difference except that the radiation of these bombs is lesser in degree and wuantity. However the devastating effects of this radiation on the people are as serious as the H-Bomb?" What? How is that possible.

Even if we can ignore the laughably ignorant premise of this article, I still have no idea what he's talking about here, since the severity of radiation injuries is a function of the amount.

I don't think that the Middle East as a whole "hates" the US, but even if it does then I think you've got cause and effect mixed up.

Propaganda Alert!

"Look at the evil US!" "The evil satan does this..."

Honestly, there are enough things wrong with the US that there is no reason to make this tripe up.

The misnamed 'Depleted' Uranium is left after enriched uranium is separated from natural uranium in order to produce fuel for nuclear reactors.

During this process, the fissionable isotope Uranium 235 is separated from uranium. The remaining uranium, which is 99.8% uranium 238 is misleadingly called 'depleted uranium'.

While the term 'depleted' implies it isn't particularly dangerous, in fact, this waste product of the nuclear industry is 'conveniently' disposed of by producing deadly weapons.
And it never occured to them WHY is U-238 called a waste product and not used in nuclear reactors? Their very article gives an answer to their claims about 120mm DPU rounds being "tactical nuclear weapons".

And what the hell is natural Uranium? There is some synthetic kind, too? :wink:

Goddamit, don't these people realize that just because something is made out of uranium it doesn't necessarily cause a nuclear explosion? :shock:
Don't hate; appreciate!
