Iraqis Blame U.S. Depleted Uranium for Surge in Cancer

"Iraq's environment minister blamed Monday the use of depleted uranium weapons by U.S. forces during the 2003 Operation Shock and Awe for the current surge in cancer cases across the country.

As a result of "at least 350 sites in Iraq being contaminated during bombing" with depleted uranium (DU) weapons, Nermin Othman said, the nation is facing about 140,000 cases of cancer, with 7,000 to 8,000 new ones registered each year."

If Iraqis are being affected, so are our soldiers. I don't know about you, but I don't feel good about making Iraq radioactive for the next 200,000 years.
