I am doing some research into the use of Depleted Uranium at the moment, which prior to, I had no idea even existed. The science stuff is well above my head but have managed to find some idiots guides online. From what I have found, although the UK and US use it, they have never done any research into the radioactive after-effects. Surely in campaigns such as Iraq and Afghan where our troops have been on the ground for years, it is a bit stupid to use a weapon that is potentially lethal to our own troops, especially as, from the research I have done, it doesn't tend to be that effective as many miss their targets. What do arrsers think on this issue? Have I managed to miss the point or researched in the wrong place? All input would be welcome.
