A slide show presentation warning of the suspected use of Uranium weapons in Afghanistan and in the proposed war on Iraq. 1500+ tons of Uranium weapons may be used within the first 48 hours of a major air attack. It will be too late to ask these questions after war has begun.
The weapons, health and safety hazards to civilians and troops, and immediate international arms control priorities are listed.
