Another Innovative Green Idea

Esteban at Chlorophyll has pointed out another great way that Green candidates can demonstrate their commitment to keeping Americans safe: Depleted Uranium testing for US soldiers.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Depleted Uranium, you can find a good explanation here. Basically, the army dips its bullets in radioactive materials to help them penetrate armor. It's been proven to be an environmental hazard, and it's been shown to increase cancer rates in Iraq.

As Esteban notes:
This harm comes not only from the Iraqi insurgents, but from their own
weapons.

And we're supposed to be the good guys. Yeah right.
