The Contamination Continues - No Clean up in Iraq
Despite the international calls by the United Nations for immediate clean-up in Iraq that were made at the time of the recent attack, neither Britain nor the US has made any attempts at decontamination. In the continuing chaos of Iraq where lack of water, food, security and medical supplies is the daily reality, DU decontamination is slipping off the political and media agenda while countless Iraqis are undergoing unnecessary exposure. According to the BBC, "The United States has said it has no plans to remove the debris left over from the depleted uranium weapons it is using in Iraq. It says no clean-up is needed, because research shows DU has no long-term effects."
