we will show there is the strong suspect that those missiles bring Depleted Uranium either as flight stabilizers in the wings, or as weight
kinetic energy enhancer. In the last week of the conflict, A-10 airplanes were deployed, and those too are well known for using DU bullets.
First depleted uranium in cruse missiles as a flight stabilizer is not turned to fine dust by the warhead going off.
these are in the wing tips and at least 3+ feet from the nearest explosives. they may be broke up into a few pieces but not turned to dust.
The broken pieces can be recovered by someone with the right radioactive detection equipment and hand recovered.
The other use of DU in cruse missiles is in only in the warhead of nuclear weapon armed missiles and become part of the nuclear fireball.
I would have no problem picking up chunks of DU metal with my bare hands as its not that radioactive.
I had more radioactive material injected into me yesterday during the Nuclear (Thallium) Stress Test of my heart then i would get from picking up
chunks of DU for a month.
Even handling uranium that is used in a reactor is not very dangerous before its been in a reactor.
that is when it gets 99.999% of its radioactivity. the US does not and never has used ‘reactor-depleted uranium in any of its weapons.
The chemical toxicity of depleted uranium is about a million times greater in vitro than its radiological hazard.
The US military has been under orders for about the last 5 years to store and have ready DU ammo for guns but they are under orders not to use it for
combat unless the enemy is also using it or its used for shipboard defence weapons like the phalanx guns where the rounds fall into the sea and then
only for combat not for training.
Russia and China have very large stockpiles of DU weapons and are not being ask to destroy them.
only the US.
