Thanks for the oil, Iraq, here’s some cancer

Turns out depleted uranium (DU) munitions are a great thing to use when you’re going to war, so long as you plan on terrorizing people for generations to come. Military-related pollution is suspected of causing a huge spike in birth defects and all kinds of cancer in Iraq since the start of the Gulf War more than 20 years ago.

The last 10 years of the Iraq War, especially, cost a lot of money that we could’ve done way better things with and also killed 190,000 people directly, but that doesn’t cover the full extent of the damage.

let’s not forget the reason why we were there in the first place, because the americans were lied to about Iraq having connections to 9/11 and supposed WMD!
the real terrorists were those in the bush administration. both of them.

some 7 months later, i re read this article and see i’ve already commented. again, the US went into iraq under the guise of WMD’s, which were not found, until we brought them there. Genocide was the reason for using DU. oil just then became a convenient excuse.
