Your Own World USA, April 3, 2002-- Could Ground Zero in NY Become a DU Nightmare?

lemonodor: http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs257/en/ -- WHO on depleted uranium.

A_Young: <A_Young> shocked and awed
seti: apart from uranium being radioactive, it's a heavy metal that's highly poisonous to our bodies too... explains a lot of "Gulf war sicknesses" that so many US troops came back with.
A_Young: "Through the glass doors of the Baghdad offices of Unicef you can read the following mission statement: 'Above all, survival, hope, development, respect, dignity, equality and justice for women and children.'" .. and above the gate to Auschwitz I the German national motto "Arbeit Macht Frei"

Administration moves ahead on nuclear `bunker busters'

^matthew: Article describes a decision to design and build a 'bunker buster' nuclear bomb. Preliminary work should be done in 2005/06.
A_Young: "If a hydrogen bomb can be successfully designed to survive a crash through hard rock or concrete and still explode, 'It will ultimately get fielded,' [Fred] Celec [deputy assistant to the secretary of defense for nuclear matters] said in an interview with the Mercury News."
A_Young: ".. According to a variety of participants, impetus for a renewed interest in battlefield nuclear weapons comes primarily from civilian Pentagon officials such as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his second-in-command, Paul Wolfowitz, rather than uniformed generals and admirals."
A_Young: ".. seven countries -- China, Russia, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Libya and Syria -- reportedly were listed as possible targets of U.S weapons in the classified Nuclear Posture Review, a 2001 Pentagon document describing Bush administration policy."
A_Young: ".. once a nuclear weapon has been used, the enemy may retaliate with any weapons of mass destruction it still possesses .." <-- this is to do with the legalities of nuclear warfare
