C. DU and International Humanitarian Law
The first principle to be analyzed is whether DU is a weapon which causes unnecessary or aggravated devastation or suffering in violation of Hague IV 23(e) and Geneva additional Protocol I 35(2). As mentioned before, DU particles can cause long-lasting health problems when ingested by military personal and civilians (possibly for the rest of their lives). It can remain in the liver, kidney, bones or other tissues, eradicating those tissues for years. Even the Department of Defence (DOD) admits that the shrapnel and gasses released from a DU weapon are radioactive. This is even more concerning as most DU use tends to be around urban areas, where people live, work, draw water and grow food and are thus more likely to suffer its radioactive effects. These radioactive effects could also have an impact on the environment and be covered by Hague IV 23(e) as any human suffering caused by environmental damage would be within the scope of the principle..women in iraq are afraid to (concieve) ,from fear of genetic defects and mutations becouse of thousands of preexisting ,birth defects cuased by (Du)life span of (du)5000000years,(exstintion of iraq)guilty as charged!!!!!!!!
