Public Discussion

Washington's insistence that the U.S. military in Iraq utilize bombs loaded with depleted uranium is inflicting radioactivity poisoning on thousands of  American troops and countless numbers of Iraqi non-combatants. Sadly, but not surprisingly, the Pentagon is refusing to test American troops returning from Iraq for radioactivity poisoning.  Radioactivity poisoning frequently inflicts cancer and other maladies on its victims.  The loss of  U.S. life as a result of exposure to depleted uranium in Iraq is likely to surpass the loss of  U.S. life in that Middle Eastern country as a result of combat.  Yet Washington remains silent.

Hear Bob Smith, a Vietnam War veteran and a soldiers' rights activist, address the current struggle to compel the U.S. government to provide testing for depleted uranium poisoning to soldiers returning from Iraq.
