Bradley Fighting Vehicles can use depleted uranium shells that are linked to cancer and birth defects in Iraq
Originally published by AntiWar
The White House refused to say if it will provide Ukraine with Bradley Fighting Vehicles equipped with radioactive depleted uranium rounds, ammunition that is linked to cancer and birth defects.
Depleted uranium is typically created as a byproduct of producing enriched uranium and is extremely dense, making it an effective material to pierce the armor of tanks. Bradleys can be equipped with depleted uranium ammunition, which is why they are known as “tank killers.”
When asked on Wednesday if the Bradleys the US is sending to Ukraine will be equipped with depleted uranium, a senior Biden administration official said, “I’m not going to get into the technical specifics.” The official also declined to answer if the M1 Abrams tanks the US is providing Kyiv will be equipped with a depleted uranium cage.
Konstantin Gavrilov, the head of Russia’s delegation in Vienna on arms control, has warned Moscow would view the use of depleted uranium weapons in Ukraine as the use of a “dirty bomb.” Gavrilov claimed that Germany’s Leopard 2 tanks could also be equipped with depleted uranium rounds.
“In case such munitions for NATO-made heavy weapons are supplied to Kiev, we will consider that as the use of dirty nuclear bombs against Russia with all the consequences that come with it,” he said, according to the Russian news agency TASS.
Cancer and birth defects spiked in Iraq after the Gulf War, during which the US fired an estimated one million depleted uranium rounds. The US also used toxic ammunition in its 2003 invasion, and studies have found that birth defects are more common in areas where depleted uranium was used. Birth defects are still common today in the city of Fallujah.

It’s about time Washington gets a nuclear cookie of own dough
Of course America is going to use depleted uranium shells. They do it literally every time they invade a country. Why would this time be different? As if they care how many people are born with birth defects or get cancer. The pentagon doesn’t care. The people don’t care. Nobody cares. They have to spread cancer and birth defects to protect democracy and that is all that matters.
Just look at the documentation Iraque after US invasion. There you can learn what impact US uranium ammunition still has on the people there. Illborn/ disabled babies. The DU ammunition is made from nuclear power plant waste! Does anyone belief that USA is friend for Ukriane if they pollute this country with nuclear weapons? Everyone nows what US DU has done in the orient. Please send this message to all Ukrainians. They have to get aware what US Biden is planing this you can call a genocide in Donbass. Radioactive isotopes will be there for decades! Stop American nuclear aggression nowm
Pogledajte koliki je procenat oboljenja od karcinoma u područjima na Kosovu i Hadžićima u Bosni,mjesta gdje je korišćena ova vrsta oružja,na Kosovu kao pečurke niču ustanove za borbu protiv raka,a finansira se iz budžeta USA.Rusi moraju odlučno reagovati ovaj put ako treba i nuklearni udar u blizini Poljske granice.
Russia has APFSDS tank shells with DU too. If Ukro get uranium ammo Russia can use it too.
If desired, Russia also has 1 Kiloton tactical nukes for artillery.
Samo ih udariti nuklearno sa time
I believe that Americans are insanely afraid of Russia. So they’ll do absolutely nothing with the uranium.
The masters of the West are superstitious and full of complexes………….
This can be used to level western Ukraine as it doesn’t have any strategic value to Russian forces, let the Polish take the radioactive ash land as gift.
That is right. Also they can make it looks like 50 ton bomb, but it is actually large 152mm or 155mm Giantsin shell.
I am sure Russia has much more powerful nukes…
But there is one difference. Russia wants to reunion all Russian tribes big, small and white Russians. So they do not like to pollute their country with radioactivity whereas USA does not care about Ukraine and the people there. They just want to hurt Putin. There is no matter in their option what the Ukraine has to pay for it. The earlier the Ukraine understands this cynic game the better.
I guess you not understand that Ukraine is Russia’s land and Ukrainians are Russian people such that The Kremlin hates NATO efforts to leave this land being poisoned for decades
Obavezno udariti nuklearno u blizini Poljske granice
Could it be right time to test full 100 megaton blast over Kiev?
It sure is. The sooner, the better.
Sissy shitskin wants nuclear ass up his asshole. Does it make your dick hard thinking about it?
Russia has depleted uranium weapons too, if NATO uses them, return the favor.
Time for AFU to set the Orcs on fire… heheheh
Awww look at this sad little troll coming out of his cave again
The forces of evil, the masters of the west, ARE NOT NORMAL They are blasphemous, idiotic, imbecile, criminal. They are very unfortunate for their “great” negativity. They must die.
Does The west have any humanity
Best in the world. Number 1.
ivan flatheads on the other hand, are just substandard, 200 years behind (never ever expierenced rule of law) as enlightement never reached Russia.
Nowadays russia even cant produce long haul civilian airplanes anymore or having a car industry worth to talk of.
You’re a German, aren’t you? Proud of your country’s remilitarization?
Russia will flatten Belgium as soon as the shells arrive, they will not wait for them to be fired
Dont sing it bring it
I would assume that NATO will give whatever stocks are oldest and most plentiful.
Mostly DU shells since the 90’s… I expect nothing less.
If America send the toxic depleted uranium ammo, three things will happen.
1) Russian ATGM’s will still blow the Abrams tank to shreds.
2) Russian troops will capture a few of the Abrams (including their crews), and reverse engineer the US classified military secrets it carries.
3) Given that America is encouraging the Ukies to use toxic, radioactive ammo, Russia will start doing the same thing. It will start using dirty bombs to kill more Ukie soldiers.
Answer to eddy.
I am German and not proud of our 30 year demilitarsation to begin with.
Time to get back on track and rearm.
Horrido johoo dran drauf drüber
I hope your war criminal, Nazi country gets nuked. It’s what you people deserve.
Lol u Ivan subhuman flatheads are really having a death wish.
Nuke anyone in Nato and ur red ass is turned to ashes as well.
Given we killed ur kind like insects, left 30+ millions of ur kind rotten in plain side during two world wars + send u Lenin/the bolshivik devils turning out even deadlier to flatheads than us…ur truely runing ur big mouth like the gobnik u truely are.
Now drink some Vodka Ivan flathead and shut the fuck up.
And thats an order/ Befehl dawarish
Your war criminal country killed 31 of my family members in WW2. Some of them were children gunned down by the SS Waffen, your nation’s pride and joy.
Your military proxy of Ukraine will be bled dry in this war. That is a fact. After that, it’s up to the German nation to decide if it wants to up the ante.
As for WW3, which your war criminal nation is bound to start, you’re getting nuked. Russia at least is big enough that some of its people will survive. But not you German worms. When you start WW3 – which will happen given that everyone in your nation has war criminal DNA – you will all be exterminated. Like bugs. No German will survive.
So ahead. Start another world war, just like you started two already. Pursue your sick colonial dream of eastern expansion, at Russia’s expense.
You are in denial if you don’t know where this will lead.
It will lead to final solution of the russian question. Endlösung der Russenfrage
By the way i know mail service is terrible slow in ur country… Letter/ invoice of RSHA probably have not arrived yet.
Payment of funeral cost for ur 31 Family members is long overdue.
You are a Nazi German. But keep in mind Nazi Germany was able to conquer half Europe and north africa.
Today’s Germany is a bulg of cowards and refuges. They even have no working military as we all know. You have heard that Germany was on NATO exercise with black broomsticks instead of a getlingguns because they had none. Their last weapons they send to Ukraine so German Nazi shut up you are 90 years too late.
Hope ur flathead, breeding like Rats,Family learned its lesson. Dont mess with Germans.
Kia/ Mia on my Family side….one Family member ( 18 year old conscipt) cruzified by chezch bandits / Partisanen after war+ great granduncle, holder of Iron Cross,deutsches Kreuz in Gold Kia/ Mia, probably by gringos/ Yankees, after Cleansing the east Front for good.
Horrido johoo, dran drauf drüber
Thanks Eddy you are so right. Baerbock declared war on Russia without a military. This country should be dissolved. The Allied missed a chance to do so after WW II. Instead of being thankful to Russia for getting a third chance after to WWII to survive as nation you declare war on the country who allowed the reunification, build a German east state, rescued you from Bush iraque war.
Next time Russia should destroy the German state for ever. They have not deserved to survive after all this crimes. Major parts of East Germany to Poland, Bavaria to Austria, Rhineland Palatine and Baden to France. Sleswig Holstein Hamburg to Denmark, Saxonia to Chech, Lower Saxonia to Netherlands. Some landmarks to Belgium and the rest should become the first muslime country in Europe! Arabic and Turkish as official language.
I still hope on Britain and your French friends to destroy your country. Russia will help as well.
As a German I totally agree with you eddy
Just remember: last time, you had easy, as the Soviet army overran your war criminal nation and split in two. Next time, it will be much worse. Russia will just obliterate you with nukes. The whole country, all the people.
No need to waste time with a nation that has war crimes in its genes. That’s you and your countrymen.
Dont sing it bring it
Ok, you want tanks in Berlin again, have it your way. You want the good old days back, you’ll fucking get them. Germany will be broken up again, but the East, along with Poland(what’s left of it in 3 years) will be melted back into a reborn Prussian kingdom, a Russian backed proxy against the West. Wont take long to round up all the blue-hair cultists and throw them on the globalist book burning piles with the closet fascists like yourself and clean up society for the better.
which will be quite easy to take as they are sending all their German tanks and ammo to the Ukranazis, so invade Berlin again will be a walk to the park for the allied troops.
Obviously the scum of the earth.
Ukraine and NATO are winning so much, they need more of everything. That’s Class A Western bullshiiiiiit for you. They are narcissists with a major psycholigical disorder. Have you ever hang around a rich person’s kid? They are spoilt brats. They cannot hear the words “No”. They have tantrums. This is Anglo Saxons. They will have to get used to it from now on.
Anglo Saxons and Zionists are not the same… Fuck, Anglo Saxons got taken over by the Norman conquest a thousand years ago… Your socially arrested problem is Zionist banksters. JEWS!
I want to see their faces when Erdogan pulls 50% of NATOS strength and turns it against them.
thats worth the popcorn.
Washington doesn’t use depleted uranium in countries that can use enriched uranium :) not that dumb :)
That’s a three-pointer post with a mic-drop.
If DU is used by the NATO forces in Ukraine, the response is going to be ugly for them, DU might lead to other forms of nuclear weapons retaliation. Bad enough that the US/UK/NATO is trying to create bioweapons using the organs of the dead slavic Ukrainian soldiers to grow maladaptive prion forming exosomes, to then isolate and deploy that against Russians in the future, DU constitutes a war crime and an ecological crime, pure hypocrisy from NATO’s blue-haired climate cultists!
Hopefully China stops delivering explosives to the west.
Latin America, Middle East, Africa and China should start a weapon embargo and the export of all resources NATO needs to build more weapons and ammunition.
Russia has stated that any useage of DU will be considered a “Dirty bomb” usage, triggering an “appropriate” response.
IE the russian version of “Fuck around and find out”
USA used DU ammo in Iraq, Syria, Yugoslavia etc. They hated those countries and wanted to destroy the gene pool along with the country. If DU ammo is given to UAF then it will be fired at Ukrainian territory. This really would prove that the USA doesn’t love the people of Ukraine but it does want to destroy the Ukrainian gene pool. Would the Ukrainians be so homicidal to do this to themselves? Well, they kill as many people in the Donbass as they can as the UAF gets pushed out. They kill their own soldiers on the front line who don’t want to be used as cannon fodder. And when they retake some territory they torture and kill collaborators, whether there actually are any or not.
I can agree only.
Greeting from an arab country. It is good if the big devil USA will be sentenced soon because of their crimes against muslim countries #Palestine, Iraque, Afghanistan, Jemen, Libyia, Syria and Iran as well.
After poisoning the middle east now they try to demolish the east slavic sphere.
Next stop will be sinochina.
All nations of the world unite against US aggression!
Are we xoxols wining yet? Yes, no? WTF, we already lost 400k soldiers so how can we not be winning? Why are the orcs still eating us for lunch? Please hurry the fuck up.
If Pentacon decides to poison Donbass with the depleted uranium filth it unleashed on Iraq and Afghanistan then no doubt Russia will respond to these mini dirty bombs with real fisionable “material” on angloZioanaZi territory, be in the EUSSR or Slumville proper.
Would the Satanic pedovorian reptiles crawl in their bunker ratholes and unleash the “nucleeer” nightmare they have long threatened? Does vermin eat its progeny?
There will be no world without Mother Russia in it. That much should be clear even to the juice poison running through the rotten veins of the dying Amerikan Golem itself.
Z to brUSels if that is what’s required.
Smoke rising over DC and Brussels will be Russia’s reply after the first DU munition is detected.
radioactive smoke there is
U slučaju da se to desi, udariti nuklearno u blizini Poljske granice,ako ni to ne bude dovoljno neka onda gori Sjeverna Amerika.
Nuke Fashington, and end that cancer for the good of humanity.
Best of all — President Putin HIMSELF said if the fahclsts and their uKRAPitrash stooges use depleted uranium ammunition, Russia would consider it a nuclear attack with dirty bombs and would respond accordingly —- meaning tactical nukes.
Can’t wait for those Nato mercs to meet their maker !
Surefire path of escalation to an ***exciting*** round of Sarmatushkas. Swamp might finally be drained or otherwise be turned into an evaporated lake bed. Psychopaths ***LOVE*** excitement, they hate non-zero sum thinking.
Might even staightaway skip Europe because of the levels of *excitement* are off the scales!
On that topic direction, can SF translate the lyrics to Sarmatushka into English as an article post?!
USA is testing how many redlines could pass before get a strong Russian reaction… USA is thinking in a future war, Ukraine war will be win by Russia for sure but USA is getting telemetry from Ukraine to study and have projections of the outcome on a war in EU NATO or in the event an allout war against Russia happen… … also USA and AngloSaxons are in an Attrittion war against Russia now just waiting, creating weapons in the MIC (military industrial complex) and waiting for the right time to let the hell loose against Russia.
