update: for some reason, Russia Today has DELETED its two-part streaming version of Rodd & Gunn Sunday's 'depleted uranium' documentary POISONED BULLETS, so here's a link to the poisoned bullets trailer.
Many American and British soldiers who returned from Iraq are complaining about depleted-uranium related illnesses. They accuse both the pentagon and the UK ministry of defense of covering up the problem.
Depleted Uranium which is a product of the nuclear industry is a very dense metal. It can cut through tank’s armour like a hot knife through butter. The military establishment, both in the United States and other countries are overjoyed about having these weapons in their arsenals and they have used them liberally in the two Gulf Wars and in Kosovo.
However, many people including several prominent scientists, claim they are highly toxic to soldiers (both those firing the weapons and those who are targets) civilians and the environment. The Pentagon and NATO firmly deny this. Poison Bullets follows doctors and experts as they voice their opposing views in the DU controversy.
POISONED BULLETS travels to the US, Great Britain, Jordan, Iraq and Spain where we meet many of the victims of both DU related diseases and the indifference of officials.
