DU Issue

Oh, and in addition to raging civil unrest and chaos in the streets, there's also tons and tons of radioactive ammunition to clean up in Iraq. The DU issue is still a debatable one. Supporters make a point of saying that you need to sleep near a hunk of DU to be adversely affected by the background radiation, or that you need to eat/inhale contaminated dirt. The real risks are prolonged exposure, not immediate poisoning. So let's talk about uranium (which is a very soft meta) and sand storms. Winds whip up radioactive top soil, abrasive sand scours new tiny particles off relatively benign (non-edible) chunks of DU. Cloud of dust blows over city. Children inhale. Lukemia. Doh!
