Environmental Pollution Resulting From the Use of DU, by Dr. Souad Al-Azzawi

The U.S.A. and its allies used a new generation of radiological weaponry during their aggression against Iraq in 1991. These weapons are called the Depleted Uranium Projectiles .The projectiles were manufactured for the first time in the U.S.A. from radioactive waste generated from the enrichment process of (U-238) to produce spent fuel for nuclear reactors. Practically, these weapons should be prohibited due to their destructive effects on civilians and the environmental elements for thousands of years to come.

Most recently published during The Trojan Horse of Nuclear War, Proceedings of the World Uranium Weapons Conference, Oct. 16 – 19, 2003, Hamburg, Germany.
