Default Re: New Oz Film - Depleted Uranium Is Genocide "Blowin' In the Wind"

Thats timely. Australians might want to ponder it as the Yank military will be building weapons testing ranges here on Oz soil soon.

They already use land North of Perth, West Oz, near a town called Lancilin where locals have been protesting the "possibility" DU munitions are used there.

It's interesting to note that official military texts state that the radiation dose of a M1A1 Abrams tank crew was quite high. I cant remember the EXACT figure but it was measured in equivilent chest x-rays...around 4 or something per day of "buttoned up" fighting.

This is because of the radiation given off by the rounds and also the DU armour that is integrated into the tank hull to foil armour piercing rounds.
