1-Umm, soldiers are well aware what they are handling, the whole military paranoia does'nt work here.
Why? My good friend was a 19K in the US Army, incase you don't know what that is, its an Abrahms Operator, his job is to either drive, load an or fire. Yes, they use DU rounds, guess what? 2-Abrahms armor is also DU plated, lol.
3-One more thing, soldiers have never, WILL NEVER be injected with DU, ROTFLMFAO, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read, 4-I thank you in seeing that our ultra superbadass one man army soldiers are the way they are simply cause they....lol...had...lmao...DU shots...lmfao, yea okay guy, 5-do some research before commenting anything soldier an army related, an before you go off in a wild tanget, 6-I am an army soldier who works with 20level an above maintenance plts, oh an my MOS deals with "radiological" along with other aspects of it.

In preparing America for nuclear attack during the Cold War years following World War II, thousands of US citizens became the innocent victims of over 4,000 secret and classified radiation experiments conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and other government agencies, such as the Department of Defense, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, the Public Health Service (now the CDC), the National Institutes of Health, the Veterans Administration (VA), the CIA, and NASA.
Millions of people were exposed to radioactive fallout from the continental testing of more than 200 atmospheric and underground nuclear weapons, and from the hundreds of secret releases of radiation into the environment. Over 200,000 “atomic vets” who worked closely with nuclear detonations at the Nevada test site during the 1950s and 1960s were especially vulnerable to radiation fallout.
Also affected were the thousands of so-called “downwinders”, who lived in nearby small towns in Nevada, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. These downwinders (along with the animal populations) suffered the worst cumulative radioactive effects of fallout, along with a contaminated environment teeming with radioactive food and farm products. The plight of these poor country people exposed to government-induced radiation sickness has been recorded in Carole Gallagher’s remarkable photo-essay American Ground Zero: The Secret Nuclear War (The Free Press, 1993).
In reviewing declassified AEC records (now the Department of Energy) from the 1950s, Gallagher was shocked to discover one document that described the people downwind of the Nevada Test Site as “a low use segment of the population.” Her shock at such callous bigotry caused her to eventually move West to research, investigate and document those who lived closest to the Test Site, as well as workers at the site, and soldiers repeatedly exposed to nuclear bombs during the military tests.
Numerous human radiation experiments have been performed in the United States, many of which were funded by various U.S. government agencies  such as the United States Department of Defense and the United States Atomic Energy Commission. Experiments included, but were not limited to:
Injecting radioactive iodine into pregnant women seeking abortion, in order to track the mass transfer between placenta and carriers bloodstream. Another experiment administered radioactive iodine to newborns.
irradiating the heads of children
feeding radioactive material to mentally disabled children
exposing U.S. soldiers and prisoners to high levels of radiation
irradiating the testicles of prisoners, which caused severe birth defects
exhuming bodies from graveyards to test them for radiation (without the consent of the families of the deceased)
The check stub and a notification letter rest in a file stuffed with Salinan James Trepoy's military paperwork.
The sum -- a whopping $75,000 -- initially made Trepoy afraid to cash the check. Then he kept all the money in the bank for a time, fearing someone had a mistake and he would get a call to send it back.
The letter accompanying the check looked official enough, bearing letterhead from the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Division, in Washington, D.C.
"This is to inform you that your claim for compensation under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Program has been approved," the letter read.
Trepoy, 88, is among an estimated group of more than 200,000 former soldiers who were witnesses to above-ground and undersea atomic tests conducted between 1945 and 1963.
Nicknamed "atomic veterans," the soldiers were part of the testing because various governments wanted to see if troops could operate on battlefields contaminated by radiation from nuclear bombs.
Retired veterans Larry Halloran, of Mulvane, and Gary Thornton, of Leon, have made it a mission to track down atomic veterans in Kansas, particularly older vets such as Trepoy, to make them aware of their eligibility for financial compensation from the government under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Program Act.
"If it hadn't have been for him (Halloran), I'd have never known," Trepoy said.
Our politicians are willing stooges of a hidden money power that rules the world. The ruling elite have used bio-weapons, chemical weapons, electronic weapons, exotic weapons, nuclear weapons, radioactive weapons and any other means they can to implement the New World Order so they can maximize profits.
In regions that have air pollution, the radiation from depleted uranium acts synergistically with chemical pollution as a “force multiplier” and increases the effects of radiation by 8-10 times. Dr. Ernest Sternglass reported that by reducing low level radiation 90 percent, the radiation damage is decreased by only 50 percent. In other words, at very low levels, less (radiation) is more (damaging), which is known as the supralinear effect.
Uranium-235 was used to “spike” the depleted uranium bombs which the U.S. military gave to Israel to use in their attack on Lebanon in the summer of 2006. This would have the effect of accelerating the adverse health effects in the exposed population in Lebanon.
On July 12, 2006, the day that Israel began its attack on Lebanon, a huge celebration was held by Shell, British Petroleum, Chevron and other U.S. oil companies to mark the opening of the Ceyhan oil pipeline from the Caspian oilfields to a warm water port on the Mediterranean in Turkey. Three more pipelines will be built under the sea to transport water, natural gas and petroleum offshore from Lebanon to Israel.
The “July attack” was the unveiling of the U.S. militarization of the eastern Mediterranean and the introduction of Israel as the military cop in the region to protect the Ceyhan pipeline. Few people realize that Israel will serve as the U.S. “gas pump” at a Red Sea port for Asian countries. Asian countries have been blocked from building oil pipelines to Central Asian oilfields, forcing them to buy oil from the U.S. and other investors via Israel and transport it by sea.

my, my, hysterics and personal attacks?
very "sane" of you two.
especially how you try to deny the facts by shrieking like banshees.
i'll say this, as the elder brother of a gulf war I&II vet,
i know more than well, how well the military "takes care of their own".
