Default Depleted uranium

Depleted uranium strikes back:

"More questions over US military fatalities in Iraq"

"On July 31, the US Army Surgeon Generalís office announced that it had dispatched teams of medical experts to investigate the causes of a severe pneumonia-like condition afflicting American soldiers taking part in operations in Iraq. The military informed the press that two healthy young soldiers had died from alleged pneumonia and approximately 100 personnel had fallen seriously ill. Since then, there have been at least four more unusual deaths of US servicemen in Iraq for which no adequate explanation has been made public.

(...)

The initial reports of a pulmonary edema, however, raise further questions about whether American troops are dying due to exposure to depleted uranium."
