I think we should know about the crimes comitted by the US government in different countries considering huge amounts of money are used on its military.

Even though the Pentagon pledged to never use this technology again, military command went ahead anyway in the 2003 Iraq conflict, deploying missiles loaded with depleted uranium (DU).

More than 2,000 tons of this toxic radioactive waste rained down on the Iraqi people. The radioactive repercussions of DU will continue to plague the Iraqi people for many years to come.

DU is more commonly used in armor piercing rounds.
