DU Rounds

I've noticed that there have been an increasing number of those in the anti-war camp that use the canard that "we are turning Iraq into a nuclear toxic waste area" with the use of DU (depleted uranium) rounds. I was all set to try to dig up the scientific evidence pro and con on this issue when I found that Odysseus had already done the scut work, and being the lazy paleo-con I am, decided to just give a link to his excellent post on the matter. The fact that the Major has served as an artillery officer, and thus has first hand knowledge of the subject, only lends credence to his contentions.

In a nutshell,by all the data, unless you receive a significant amount of imbedded shrapnel AND allow it to remain there for an extended period of time, the arguments against DU rounds is comepletely specious.
