Agent Orange wasn't a weapon, granite counter tops put out more radiation than depleted uranium rounds, and white phosphorous is only dangerous if you eat it or light it on fire.

it is repeatedly lit on fire and used to burn little kids.

I don't think that allows it to be classified as a 'chemical weapon' though.

it's in the same category of atrocity.

(ie setting off WF over someones village is as morally wrong and punishable as using agent orange or sarin, or a small-scale bomb [a full blown nuke is even worse].)

depleted uranium is not radioactive, it is HIGHLY toxic and causes birth defects, hence the picture being of a baby potato

Uranium has no stable isotopes. In other words there's no such thing as a non-radioactive uranium. Depleted uranium doesn't possess enough U-235 to be used as a fuel source, but it does undergo nuclear decay.

Doesn't nearly everything undergo nuclear decay though? That's what carbon dating is all about, using radical mathmaticals to detect how old something is based on it's half-life.

I may be completely wrong though, I passed chemistry with only a C and slept through most of the lessons.

Carbon-14 does, most other isotopes are stable. Difference between two isotopes of the same element is the count of neutrons in the nucleus.

Also, the actual radiation released from decay of C-14 is extremely minor, especially when compared to nuclear decay of heavier elements, like Uranium or Plutonium.

That's right. It's been about 5 years since I took pre-AP chem.

You are totally right. HOWEVER, white phosphorus rounds explode and are on fire when they are fired.

Agent orange was an unintentional weapon, which makes it ok i guess.

Next time i let a cyanide bomb off ill remember that one.

******* propaganda.

DU is just that. Depleted. it's radioactive output is SO low you would literally have to make a necklace out of the pieces of shrapnel, and wear it for 10 years, then get pregnant, for it to have any impact on your unborn child. the only time DU rounds are used, are in anti-armor roles. and the only two i can think of are Sabot rounds, from a tanks main armament, and the GAU-8 on the A-10.

White phosphorus, again, does not cause birth defects, it's no more a chemical weapon than napalm.

u forget that that radioactive decay is completely random and takes incredibly long to full decay. depleted just means that its too low to be used in a reactor anymore. also any radiation can cause mutation. ever time you are exposed to radiation there is a chance of mutation its just massively more likely to cause no effect or kill the cell but still has a chance to cause mutation

maybe you should just calm down and think about how uranium 235 has a half life of 7 x 10^8 (thats a lot if u cant figure it out). In case you are again to dumb to figure it out that is how long it take for half a sample of uranium 235 to decay. Im pretty sure that the us military dont wait that long to use the uranium in there bullets. it is emitting radiation for quite a long time after it is fired from the gun. There is a large problem with the potential terrorists have to take depleted uranium and turn it into a dirty bomb due to its radioactive property. And yes the smallest amount of radiation can cause cell mutation. It would take as little as one alpha particle to ionize and cause mutation despite the low chance.

I'm a 19k, M1 Abrams Armored Crewman for the US Army. I load those Depleted Uranium shells into the tank. We have Geiger counters IN the tanks themselves, and they don't go off. The SABOT rounds that we fire have little to none radiation left. Hell, the ******* tanks themselves are a mix of Ceramic and Depleted Uranium armor. They're not radioactive.

Maybe, just maybe, when you decide to "educate" someone, you should first educate yourself...
half-life
noun
1.
the time taken for the radioactivity of a specified isotope to fall to half its original value.

hahahaha, a10s fire depleted uranium rounds, regular infantry doesnt use it but massive fire power most definitely does
its because its so dense that it is a fantastic armor piercing material

which then got into the water, fell onto the vietcong troops, got into their systems, and is now effecting later generations. not anti-war, just realize the consequences.

As far as I knew the only bad thing about agent orange was that it ****** up local agriculture, but aside from that I hadn't heard of any carcinogenic side effects.

So you're saying it was the Vietnamese who dropped Agent Orange on themselves?

Either way, those chemicals were dropped on the orders of the US military.

Agent Orange was a defoliant. The US at the time was told by its manufacturers (Monsanto) that the chemical was safe enough to drink.
