US Military, President Out of Control What Does 'Mildly Radioactive' Mean, Anyway?: "-- The Russians just recently stopped a weightlifter coming across the border with about 100 pounds of 'highly radioactive depleted uranium.' The guy said he was using it for dumbbells in weightlifting.
The American Department of Defense and other government departments all are unanimous in calling so-called depleted uranium 'mildly radioactive depleted uranium.' They like to use it for bombs, shells and heavy caliber bullets.
Highly radioactive, mildly radioactive, moderately radioactive.
What does it mean? Whom to believe?
The godless former Commies or the brave Iraq-smashing Americans?"
