To the best of my knowlege we are the only nation which continues to use these weapons, and the really sad thing is that we are completely aware of
And to the "best of my knowledge", you are simply doing selective research. You want to make others aware of this issue by telling them to research
the issue, and yet, you assert "to the best of my knowledge," the US is the only one who "continues" to use DU laced weaponry? Typical. I assume
your taking this stance because the US is supposedly the only ones who have used such weaponry? NATO used it in Kosovo. Which nations that make up
NATO were present and active in conflict operations in Kosovo? Which of those nation were involved in the 1st Gulf War? Hello?
Take your own advice, and research a bit more objectively yourself, maybe?
The link given below indicates that The Nuclear Policy Research Institute
The Nuclear Policy Research Institute estimates that 12 countries currently possess DU weapons in their arsenals: the United States, the United
Kingdom, Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Thailand, Israel, France, China, Jordan, and Taiwan.
You do understand what the definition of "currently
" is, correct? As such, I have to ask how in all that research you profess to have done
that you can simply assert: "to the best of my knowledge"? Selective agenda-driven researching, maybe?
Twitchy, this issue over DU is a significant issue. It requires no politicizing. A solid and objective research would have greatly increased the
effectiveness of your topic on this issue.
