Horse hockey!!! Depleted uranium bullets have to get into your body to harm you. Of course, if they do, you are dead very quickly and you won't be having babies. Blaming deformed babies (in a country

depleted uranium ?

I googled it for you...

 

http://en.wikipedia....epleted_uranium

 

Because it has more mass than lead, depleted uranium will go through materials that lead can't penetrate. I worked on the Utah Test and Training Range and the "Warthogs" (A-10's), as they were affectionately called by their drivers, would come in to practice strafing. Whereas other jets, such as F-16's would hit their strafing target about 5% of the time, A-10's would not only hit the targets every time, but would consistantly leave a pile of rubble in their wake. If the Air Force ever gets rid of this weapon platform, it will be a huge mistake. No other aircraft on Earth can do what the A-10 does as well as it does it. Rather than phasing them out, we should be building more. This is a design that is as good today as it was when it was created. Go Warthogs!!

 

 

 

Guess half a million deformed babies in Iraq, and their parents, might disagree with you on that one.

 

 

So? They will think twice before they do it again.

 

 

 

Uuhh.............. Tom ? What did the Iraqis do to justify the last "illegal" invasion ? Come on.....

Real men, dont worship big toys. Real men, believe in moral principles. The rest is up to you. So, you going to inquire or not ?

 

 

Well I didn't sleep through science courses, for a start. The "D" in DU means ... it's not significantly radioactive. A lot of metals are TOXIC. DU isn't really anything special, except that it's really dense and it can be processed into a very energetic fuel source.

 

Look at what is happening in Fallujah now............

 

In September this year, 170 children were born at Fallujah General Hospital, 24 per cent of whom died within seven days. Three-quarters of these exhibited deformities, including "children born with two heads, no heads, a single eye in their foreheads, or missing limbs". The comparable data for August 2002 -- before the invasion -- records 530 births, of whom six died and only one of whom was deformed.

All you need to do is inquire.................. please.

You need to stop reading the radical Islamist propaganda sites if you don't know how to discern between fact and fiction.

I don't get that -- surely -- radical Islamist propaganda sites -- would be promoting THE opposite view...??

OR covering this up...???

No one can...

 

If fiction is presented in a factual manner...

 

Eye witnesses are deplorably inaccurate in their "Summation" of events...

Um yeah, if you write it really big it makes the source more credible. Heavy metals are toxic. You still haven't said why you think DU is special. To put it bluntly, why would you bring up your source above in this discussion? What basis is there? Maybe having Hummers in town causes this sort of propaganda; the correlation is similar.

I've flown an A10 many many times. Old reliable.

I didn't realize you were a hog driver, Rob. Good on ya...

 

I hope the Air Force reconsiders its plan to replace them with the F-35. It just won't work. The A-10 is built for close-in work, can get hit and still survive to fly another day. It takes a lick'n and keeps on tick'n. The F-35 (with only one engine and NO armour) just can't do that.

 

 

Going Hogging was a Big Past Time of Big Rob. The bigger the better as they say.

Lucky they did not run into a convoy of Marines on the way and they would never had to worry about that visit to the hospital.
