An update of Metal of Dishonor, this new documentary exposes the U.S. use of radioactive depleted uranium weapons.

In this new Iraq War — It’s worse than before During the
current Iraq War the U.S. use of radioactive Depleted
Uranium weapons increased from 375 tons used in 1991 to
2200 tons. Geiger counter readings at sites in downtown
Baghdad record radiation levels 1,000 and 2,000 times
higher than background radiation. The Pentagon has bombed,
occupied, tortured and contaminated Iraq. Millions of
Iraqis are affected. Over one million U.S. soldiers have
rotated into Iraq.

Today, half of the 697,000 U.S. Gulf War troops from the
1991 war have reported serious medical problems and a
significant increase in birth defects among their newborn
children. The effects on the Iraqi population are far
greater. Many other countries and U.S. communities near DU
weapons plants, testing facilities, bases and arsenals
have also been exposed to this radioactive material which
has a half-life of 4.4 billions years.

Let's get vocal! Demand full testing, full healthcare,
decontamination, a thorough clean-up and reparations.
Let’s work to educate ourselves and mobilize people to
understand what the Pentagon has unleashed on the world.

Produced by Peoples Video Network and the
Depleted Uranium Education Project of the International
